Hello everyone! I'm going to be showing you how to make a few basic mob grinders!
If you want to just follow along with the pictures, I'll be sure to put enough in so that's possible!
There will be measurements for each build!
Grinder #1 - Common Mob Farm
This is thee most basic mob farm you could make. It works with just about every spawner and is overall very efficient!
To get started, you're going to want to make a box. This box is going to be 11x11 and its center will be one block.
It should look something like this
*Wool and podzol are used for scale only. You may use whatever blocks you want.
Next you're going to want to fill that floor in with a block of your choosing.
The walls are going to be exactly 12 blocks high. The measurements for this build will be 11x12x11
Fill in the walls completely going all around the square. You may use whatever block you want.
We're almost done with the build at this point! Your next step is going to be tricky.
You're going to want to break a Triangle shape into your floor. Use the following picture to do this.
You can make the triangle on any side. Wherever you make the triangle is the direction in which the mobs will flow towards.
After that, close off the roof and make a small pillar in the middle where the spawner will be:
The Obsidian represents the spawner in this picture.
The next thing you're going to want to do is make the hallway in which the mobs will flow into.
For this I recommend a 3x3 hallway that leads into an area where you can then kill the mobs.
The opening you see is where the mobs will flow into. From there you can do almost anything to them! You can make them flow right off a cliff or you can have them drop into a collection area.
There is only one more thing to do for this grinder, and that's to add the water. You're going to need 2 buckets of water.
Place them in their respective corners as show and you're all set!
Grinder #2 - Afk Automatic Mob Grinder
*Note this does not give you experience. Only drops.
*Note this does not work with cows pigs and sheep or flying mobs.
For this grinder, we're going to be using the measurements of the old one. However this time you're going to want to make your height much bigger.
The measurements this time should be 11x30x11 with 30 being the height.
Next what you're going to want to do is setup hoppers. Setting up hoppers can be very difficult if you don't know what you're doing.
Make a hole in the wall as shown and place a chest where you want the loot to flood into. It must be in the center axis!
Now that you've done that, you're going to want to place hoppers flowing into the chest. Do as shown.
That will be going through the center into your primary chest.
Now what you want to do is make hoppers flow into those hoppers. Do as show.
Here is what the hopper directions should look like when you've filled in everything.
Then all you need to do is place your spawner up top and watch the the mob drop down to their death!
Grinder #3 - Afk Pig-Sheep-Cow Grinder
*Works best for killing and cooking pigs sheep and cows
This grinder is best explained in a video as some of its components are hard to follow.
Go to the following link for an easy tutorial on how to make this grinder.
That about does it for my 3 grinder tutorials!
I've built both of these many many times in the past so if you need clarification or help in general, please respond to this post or send me a private message!
I leave you with beautiful pixel art.
Thanks MoonThePineapple for the pixel art =D
