    yea thank you anyway
    i have built a very basic one of these onmy having trouble geting monsters to fall down :P i will try it
    - BEASTY December 29, 2010, 2:11 pm
    the only thing i forgot to show was how much space between the levels.

    the spawning area needs to have 2 blocks above it so that monsters can spawn.

    ok this might get long...

    the first thing i showed was how to build each level to get the monsters to go to the sides and fall down right?
    the 3x3 holes go in the corner and the water flows from a spot in the middle of the side.

    right next to the water flow is the area were the monsters spawn. the other side is the wall containing all of this. you can build as many floors as you want, the more the better the drop rate of the items. hope that helped a bit.

    Hey arrow... We should try to get a sharenator server going no? It would be awesome to see what multiple people could do.

    Um may i join if it starts?

    I don't see why not.. But arrow what are the dimensions for the tower? 25x25?
    - ReapersSniper December 29, 2010, 7:50 pm
    yeah, thats for the walls
    then the 3x3 area for the water ways then the square for the mobs to spawn.
    - arrowdodger7 December 30, 2010, 2:23 am
    If I recorded my place and put it here could ya tell me if im doing it correctly?
    Edit: And the 3x3 area is off to the side, or above it? And how does it drop them into it...?

    - ReapersSniper December 30, 2010, 3:04 am
    Ok.... but how can we start a server...

    Still having issues with making it... I have made most of it but nothing will spawn. Here's two vids showing what I have. Please help...

    alright...first off the tower needs to go straight up. i got no clue what you did there...like maybe half of a floor or something...also did you make sure that its completely dark inside? like absolutely no light from anything?
    - arrowdodger7 December 31, 2010, 4:21 am
    im making a vid of how to build up right now.
    and add me on steam man...i requested you.
    - arrowdodger7 December 31, 2010, 4:49 am
    I can't... Don't have a game so it wont let me add more. But yeah I only did half a floor so that I could test it. It is completely dark inside.
    - ReapersSniper December 31, 2010, 9:04 am
    do monsters spawn inside?
    - arrowdodger7 December 31, 2010, 12:35 pm
    Is MW2 working since I gave it to you basically...
    - gemie89 December 31, 2010, 12:41 pm
    No. I can't use the same key. So im probably going to be giving it back to you. If you get a hold of Tyler I could get the full version of minecraft for some multiplayer.
    Also monsters are not spawning inside of it....

    We built a 50x50x2 room on our server that works in a very similar way, and we even built a glass wall in the spot where all the monsters get killed. There is something delightful about watching a creeper get pulled along with that sorry little frown on it's face, you can imagine it saying "No! Please don't kill me! I didn't blow up your old fortress and leak lava into the mines! That wasn't me! It's not my fault! No don't- AIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!-... (Then the little pings for having gotten items ^^)"

    We can honestly say these sorts of mob-grinding traps are the most rewarding thing in Minecraft, although time consuming. Ours took 9 and a half hours to make.

    Mine took about a week of planning,building, and collecting to get it just right. and yes it is one of the rewarding things in minecraft, besides putting in the last block of that amazing building you constructed that is just awesome...you get my point.
