  • Thewaterspirit57
    Thewaterspirit57 Year ago +1

    Torches always help out, but....I feel like it’s hard to get every spot properly without wasting too many torches XP
    It’s either optifine or another mod, but one allowed you to press F7, and see a grid of all the non lit blocks, which would also show that torches light up about 4 or 5 blocks away in a diagonal sort of square. Minecraft should have that in the game, so we can properly light up things

  • Sir Digby Chicken Caesar

    I use the last one a lot myself but I put a opened trapdoor on the outer edge to trick them into falling in and a rail with hoppercart under the magma block to drop it all into a chest so my defence earns me resources too.
    didnt know about the trapdoor over the magma block though, cant wait to play around with that mechanic now.
    great vid thanks for the ideas

    15:41 they dont cross because there are magma blocks at the bottom of the water. The water or downdraft doesnt make a difference to them. If a waterfall had soul sand at the bottom, it creates an updraft in the waterfall. The updraft and downdraft might have different directions, but they have the same purpose, for quick transport in water (just in opposite directions) and being able to breathe underwater. And zombies like water because it stops them from burning. Its due to the magma blocks
    I know i used some complicated terms, please conment if you want to know the definitions

  • This account is inactive

    The first one with the trap door magma thing works the same way a mob grinder does
    Cos mobs think of trapdoors (open or closed) as full
    Blocks so they think they can walk straigh over the magma
    Also this works on console too

    Imagine if in a future update, they make blocks destructible by mobs and raids. Each block can have different durability depending on what it is.

  • A M

    I just surround my base with stone walls. To enter, you have to go through a tunnel. Of course a mob can break the door itself, that's why there is a tunnel. The tunnel is made of stone so creeper can't blow it up. Also the tunnel has only one ladder to get out of the tunnel (some mobs, can climb ladders but not if there is no ladder next to the ground). And of course when you exit the tunnel, there is a door. There are pressure plates inside the house so the door will close behind you. Yes, I know this is overkill but I've seen no mob that has breached this (not to mention lighting around my base)

    8:50 you could put a end pearl stasis chamber hooked up to the daylight Clemson too so it teleports you back and puts the lava down at night

  • Battlefield4life48

    The lava design is good but hear me out. Just make a piston system all on one level that moves stone out the way for lava to flow through. Theoretically all you need is a layer of pistons, stone above it, and the permanent lava blocks in a protected pool behind the moving stone

  • Beetless

    I like the pufferfish one lots but I would use a iron trapdoor being powered to keep it closed so players can’t open them

  • LuLu

    16:44 you could add a lever and connect redstone to all of the trapdoors on both sides then it's faster

  • Frederico Moraes Sarmento

    You forgot the carpet hole method. If you make a 4 block deep hole and fill it with carpet, the pathfinding recognizes that as a hole, therfore, keeping mobs from moving over it. It also allows you to place those annoying Geralds on the same place if you push them on top of one of those "holes"

    Ok so the first trap works on bedrock .
    The water bubble trap doesnt work on Bedrock.But they just go instantly in water and drowns..Other Mobs do not die in the Magma.
    Air replace below slab traps.
    I dont think it works on Bedrock.
    The pufferfish trap Doesnt poison any mobs.such mobs will get damaged some dont.
