  8. my pics are at http://aikar.co/db/mc/grinder2

    my goal was to enable multiple people to use it, so 4 collection pits

    i followed the Etho's style spawn pads
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSCutiy1hi4#t=7m33s

    but I made the system much larger, more spawn rooms, and really expandable.

    Also built in the sky to have no worries of other monsters spawning in caves etc...

    1x1 collection chambers are soooo much nicer than the standard 2x2 chamber like utopia too, as skellies cant even shoot at you... creepers blast doesnt even really affect you rarely will even detonate unless you hug the pillar.

    the rate of this currently is great... way better than the previous utopia grinder, and we are nowhere near done.

    we got more floors to make still - which btw, they all drop down to the first floor immediately, no falling floor by floor..., and then we plan to make more chambers in the corners between the wings... giving EVEN MORE spawn area.

    then ultimately, get really qicked... and make chambers completely in a sphere around us that uses water sign elevator technique to take them back up to drop them :D

    can you say insane ;)

    we cant test current spawn rate yet because its still very open and unfinished, alot of light getting in, and intentionally plugging it to prevent monsters spawning on us while working.

  10. Beats a giant, 6000 block statue of Thomas Jefferson carved out of a mountain.

    That got removed thanks to the server reset.

    Great work guys!
  11. a floor looks like this, where X is a 3x3 spawn pad

    Code:
        X X X
        X X X
    X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X
        X X X
        X X X
    
    This is repeated every floor, and completely exandable as much as I want outwards....

    so next step is then:
    Code:
          X X X
          X X X
          X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
          X X X
          X X X
          X X X
    
    then also eventually:

    Code:
    X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X
    
    then you get the drift ;)
    Code:
        X X X X X X X X
        X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X X X X X
    X X X X X X X X X X X X X
        X X X X X X X X
        X X X X X X X X
