Underground Iron Farm?

  1. Hey everyone!

    I've built an iron farm underground, same design as I previously used on Empire above ground. But no golems are spawning.

    I used the design at http://youtu.beDev3Ls8papM

    14 villagers, 40 doors.

    I have cleared 5 blocks out in front of all doors.

    I have two 1x1 shafts to surface above spawning area capped with glass.

    Still no golems.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for your help.
  2. Oh, and no villages within 100 blocks of the farm.
  3. This farm wouldn't be on utopia would it?
  4. No, regular Empire. In the Frontier.
  5. First off, your link is broken, so that makes it a little harder to figure out what's wrong :)
    Second, is the sky clear above the doors? I believe that's a thing that can make a difference.
    Finally, are the caves around you lit up? If there's lots of spawnable area around where you built, it's possible that the chances of a golem spawning are just too low.
  6. I am not sure, but I don't think iron farms are supposed to be underground. I am not sure, I never looked it up or tried it for myself. If it is wrong, don't correct me :p
  7. Area above the doors must all be dug out. You can place glass on surface but nothing else.
  8. lol the farm you linked has already enought problems working on full ocean biome with nothing but air, putting it undergound is a dead end. Why would you build it underground may I ask?
  9. Iron golem farms can definitely be underground. Would have to see this specific setup to see whether this would work
  10. Dufne, cadgamer101 and tuqueque like this.
  11. Thanks everyone for your help. I tweaked it and it still doesn't work, so I'm giving up. And I found a great public iron farm on my server anyway. So all's well that ends well.
