Level 72 : Legendary Warrior
UPDATE: June 2nd 2012
This map was created during Minecraft Beta. A lot has changed since then, specifically related to mob spawning characteristics. While still functioning in the current version of the game it no longer produces the kind of output it did in the good old days.

I see no need to update it to function as it would require a complete re-design of the entire system. Beta was really the only time to build such monstrous mob grinders as it made sense then to test the game from my end just to see what it could do.

Now that the full game is released I no longer use creative mode or mods to build such machines. I'd rather do it legit in survival mode...and so should you.

The world save for this project is no longer available because Random House Publishing has had it taken down everywhere I post it. Apparently the byte data I authored for Minecraft's game engine infringes on the copyrights they hold to a book called "The Orb Project." When I try to dispute the take down I get no response from my file hosts or Random House.

I hope the video and screenshots I produced are enough to satisfy your interests. You don't need a world save for everything. Produce your own original work. It's the only way to learn and improve your crafting. Thanks for your time :)

Update #3 : 11/22/2011 11:48:54 am11/22/11

UPDATE Nov 22, 2011
Made the necessary changes in order to comply with Minecraft 1.0
  • Replaced all glowstone under redstone broken by 1.0
  • Fixed items getting stuck in the collection chutes
  • removing glowstone enabled mob spawns in unwanted areas. fixed that too
  • For some reason the Orb no longer spawns Squid rendering the squid farm useless. However, It may serve as a collection area if fences are ever made to let items pass through
  • I added an observation deck at the grinder level and a few other minor tweeks you may or may not notice.

Update #2 : 09/09/2011 10:58:32 pm9/09/11

World Save, Schematic and Video added!!!

Update #1 : 09/08/2011 10:56:07 am9/08/11

Added all new screens from Eihort and MCMap!

I really like the mix of a mob trap and kind of a design.
Most of the mob traps are just a huge stone block with the technical stuff in it.
But you, I must say, let it look quite nice :)

squids require stationary water to spawn so u need a piston thing to make the water move and also spawners to make them spawn more...

i like how you can turn them off and on in this mob trap

Right now I'm playing through Super Hostile #8 on my YouTube channel. The Enderman present an interesting challenge as far as trapping goes and their drops are pretty useful now. That might be the direction I'm heading :)

Thanks Jaso444! As far as a mob trap that's small (a few stories) is concerned, yes but, you'd have to spread out horizontally to keep a high output rate.

I'm not an expert in projects at all (however I should get around to trying one) but what I really love about this project is the automatic feel of it with the redstone. Most mob traps basically just have a huge, dark building with mob spawners with water sources leading them to a lava death. What I love about this one is you're using pistons to kill mobs and receive goodies. Subbed, even though like I said I'm not big into projects, yours just stands out. I realize you aren't the first to use this mechanism but something about yours just makes it pop. Keep up the good work ML32.

This has made me a bit happier, my trident mob trap glitched out, all but 1 of the modules has perm light in it with no source.

Hmm... that's definitely weird. Did you try placing blocks in the areas with lighting errors? Sometimes I get the same thing when using SPC's "light" command. Placing blocks in the effected chunks usually helps :)

spent an hour doing that, my modules were blocked off between each 1/3 so it took a while, the I logged out and back in and it came back. :l - I don't think it matters anyway, gonna need to make a better version to deal with endermen.
