Blaze Spawner Disabling w/ torches.

  1. Someone have a template to disable a blazespawner with torches?

    Positioning of torches, etc etc.
  2. Not possible, torches only slow the spawning down. Has to be with blocks (8x8, the 8 sides facing the lower coords).

  3. hmm, is it different in SP? cause i didn't really get why thoose stopped spawning with torches.

    Anyways - thanks for the reply.
  4. A single torch will disable any spawner.
  5. I can't tell if that's a troll... if it is, one torch will not disable it.

    Yep, I always have them spawning, even with 10-15 torches near.

  6. Well I only ever put down one torch and no mobs ever spawn. Perhaps it is only slowing the spawn rate down, but it's slowing it down a lot, enough that I won't have to worry about one coming out because I'll be gone before it does.

    Blaze spawners might have different properties, but it doesn't matter to me because when I find one I don't want to disable it, I want to farm from it.
  7. Yes, it only slows it. Not sure how much though. Blaze spawners work differently, also.
  8. Blaze will spawn around a spawner if there is a light level of 11 or lower (lower half of their body). You can completely stop a blaze spawner from spawning blazes by placing a layer of blocks at the same y coordinates, followed by placing torches on this layer (y coordinate +1).

  9. You saved my day!
  10. But if you got no torches, do a 2 layer instead of one ;)

  11. In addition to this, the bottom layer would be as the same y coordinates as the spawner. Just replace the torches with solid blocks.
