  1. I'm not sure if everyone's seen this or not so I thought I'd put it out there. In 1.8 iron drops from golems are being changed to to rare drops. What this means is that all existing iron farms are going to have to be modified.

    Here's a video that shows how:

    One thing Aikar might want to pay attention to is the lag that will be caused from iron farms storing golems. Hopefully it won't be too much of a problem.
  2. If I remember correctly, they reversed that? :confused:

  3. The golem nerf? Do you have a link? I just searched Google and I can't find anything about them reversing it. It would be great if they did. this would have a huge effect on every server with an economy. I think a lot of people don't realize that one of the reasons iron is so cheap, is because of the iron farms.
  4. oh, they know lol.
    Iron farms are wildly blamed for the price.

  5. I guess the question is, are they a good thing or bad thing? If you're a miner you'd have to hate them but as a consumer, you love them!
  6. You are about 8 month late. They were nerfed initially (same as zombie pigman), but got reversed under the MC community pressure.
