  1. A few months ago in the wilderness frontier of SMP5, I was building an iron golem farm engineered by TangoTek. It's based on recreating villages and positioning them one after the other. However, I haven't been able to get it functional. I tried giving more time for the villagers to register and deregister doors, but it made no effect. My final guess after proceeding to another mob farm is: [This farm will not work in bukket(A modded Minecraft server)] because it does slow down of the game's processes, like 'natural' mob spawning.

    If you wish to build one of these farms, here's a link to TangoTek's tutorial.
    *NOTE: The video is over 1 hour long, and I recommend only experienced Minecraft players to watch.

    [Tutorial Corrections]:
    *NOTE: The Max Villagers Explanation actually goes by how many unique positions for the villagers(One occupied block is one position).

    *If I can get this farm working, I'll able to get over 16 stacks of iron ingots every hour!
  2. Also for another report, I'm planning to do a showcase of my new enderman farm soon on the EMC forums, or on SMP5!
  3. The iron trench does not work on emc.

  4. This farm type was already tried several months ago, and those who have tried it have said that it doesn't work. It won't ever work.
  5. I guess that's the conclusion....
    Better to go tear it down sometime, but I had never of anyone on EMC trying to build it. Like, it's completely functional on traditional server like non-emc.
  6. Its because of the amount of iron farms we already have, too many technical villages.

  7. It was all discussed here: http://empireminecraft.com/threads/holy-mother-of-iron-gloem.24182/. I was one of the people that attempted to get it working, but I never managed to find a work-around for the spawning issues. Here's what I said about it in another thread where somebody planned to make one:
  8. Docm77's Iron golem farm works quite well on these servers
  9. I don't know if you heard, but EMC is nowhere near a traditional server :)
