Like or vote up if you like the project, plz.

A large arena with a series of switches controlling which mobs drop into the arena. Load onto multiplayer servers and fight each other/mobs or just fight mobs on your own.

Currently working on a series of switches to regulate flow of mobs so as to create different levels (easy/hard) or redstone based timers (eg. 60 second creeper round, 2 minute skeleton round, etc.).

Very new to actually building shit like this, usually I've just made houses/underwater things etc.

Download link now supplied, cropped all but the necessary chunks to keep size down. Let me know your thoughts so far. Spawn point is on a tower that then drops down into water and then into the arena. Armour and swords supplied in chests etc. Also golden apples.

Update #2 : 06/17/2011 1:17:25 am6/17/11

Download link supplied. All redstone wiring in place, skeletons, zombies and creepers should all work properly. Farm animals still are getting a bit stuck (yes there is a farm animals switch for those who don't want to fight mobs and that lol) and I'm not getting slimes to spawn yet, perhaps the whole thing is too high up in the world to actually spawn slimes. If that's the case, I may need to address this.

Final spawner doesn't spawn anything yet. I could add more of the same mobs but that's pretty boring. Will wait for more villains from Notch.

Like/upvote if you like the download link, comment for suggestions and I'll see what I can do about them. Working on some other projects too, will start uploading them. Saves on life's mundanity! Woo!

Update #1 : 06/15/2011 4:19:20 am6/15/11

Okay so I spent some time on it today, instead of creating a separate arena for each mob type have taught myself basic redstone circuits and wired in a release mechanism for all the different mob spawners so that mobs drop down onto both sides of the arena with the flicking of one switch.

Arena is also now made out of bedrock, less pretty but means it doesn't get blown up every time you meet a creeper in the arena.

So far only creepers, zombies and skeletons spawn successfully (the rate of spawn is about equal for zombies and skeletons and slightly less for creepers) but my attempts to spawn slimes and non-aggressive animals have so far proven futile. Will continue to test system over coming days. This all came about due to an addiction to runescape but being bored of actual gameplay.

Look forwards to suggestions, shall post more photos when time allows.

awesome mod, i love it.

suggestions though...

could you make an obsidian arena for fighting creepers/ ghasts?

also could you possibly make a themed arena? like a maze one or a castle one?

that'd make the difference between an awesome mod and a legend

thank you

EDIT: after trying it out i would like to try and fix some problems I saw... first thing is that the original spawn point changed, if you were worried about ruining the redstone you can use signs to stop the water in that section. Also, the other problem I saw was that zombies and creepers are reluctant to leave thier hole, and as there was a ledge for them to cling to the were not droppig at the same rate as the skeletons. I propose the idea that using trap doors and a 2x1 hole would work better then doors and a 2x2 hole, allowing the full spawning rate to appear. Also, I hope to see the fixes coming to add slimes and humans (?) to the arena! good luck!

I love the maze/castle idea! Have already started building :)

As for the arena, it's made out of bedrock so is indestructible for creepers.

Also, these recent updates have opened up an almost infinite number of possibilities for mob arenas. Maybe if you find the time you can add some things to this map (I have no idea why I thought it was a mob)

Thank you very much for creating stuff for us in the community

yes, saw that when I played it, should have added it to edit... if you are stuck on ideas and are bored, might I suggest an arena based solely on arrows (maybe more like a paintball course with you against skeletons?) I just came up with that on the fly so feel free to ignore it.

The download file is a world save. You should be able to use a world editor like MCedit to apply it into your world.

you should make a city around the arena and then put it on a server, so a bunch of people can use this arena at a time!

If someone has a server they'd want to host it on I'll happily do the build for them.

Okay, so I'm going to go sleep now but when I wake up I'll post photos. I've started implementing a system whereby you can control how many of the mobs get through via a system of buttons and levers. Photos will include spawner channels and etc. Night! xx

Mob spawners in corridors above the arena with water chutes that stop just short of the holes in the ceiling that make them fall down. So they have to fall down. Fits all mobs except for giants and ghasts, but so I'm going to set up an arenas for zombies, skeletons, creepers, etc.

The glowstone around the outside edge is a nice touch. Would you mind explaining how you would get the mobs in the arena? or is that supposed to be done with mob spawners that were player placed?

Still figuring out a perfectly functioning system, but currently there is a large series of spawner systems above the ceiling that then drop down onto those 4x4 stacks of stone blocks. I've made the middle flat again, but it means that you can stand in the middle and mobs will attack you from all sides.
And yeah, I've used quite a lot of glowstone for it, using stripes and stuff to create a nice looking arena rather than just a functional one.
