K so i was just playing like 10 mins ago and i decided to do a little bit of exploring, i found this random cave kinda in the middle of nowhere so i went into it because i saw some iron blocks, i kept following a path then i looked right cause i saw a wierd cage thing with fire in it. As i got closer i saw a zombie like thing stuck in the cage and it kept spinning around but not doing anything. Any ideas what this is?

Well, looks like you've found your first dungeon!
The fire-with-spinning-zombie thing is a Monster spawner, or 'Mob' spawner.
But if you're on peacefull, it will just sit there and not generate anything.

The cobblestone streaked with green is mossy cobblestone, it is only found in dungeons.

Hope this helped,

I believe we have a noob in our presence! lol Good job you found a dungeon! took me 2 months to find one when I first started to play...(I was more of a surface dweller in those days)

-british accent- 'Ello good sir, I believe you have encountered a zombie mob spawner. These rare occasions are very... rare. If you don't know where you are, you are in a dungeon. Dungeon floors are made of mossy cobble, not obtainable from anywhere else. (except item spawning /shot)

Firstly, this is a very old thread. Secondly, I bet you didn't know what a spawner was when you first started playing. Lastly, comments such as that are frowned upon by the rules of Planet Minecraft. Please take the time to read said rules.

Would you people stop? They obviously are new to Minecraft, and don't know what it is. Not all Minecraft players have the same amount of knowledge and experience as you do.

It's a dungeon, and they randomly generate underground (sometimes you can get into them from the surface though) and they have a mob spawner (zombie in your case) and 0-2 chests I believe. The chests have some pretty hard to get items in them.

The cage thing is a monster spawner. When not playing on peaceful, it can spawn spiders, creepers, skeletons, and zombies. Since you are in a dungeon, it is not a rare sight to see them. They take awhile to destroy. When playing on peaceful, they spawn pigs. If you are interested, there is a mod that opens up a spawner GUI to let you choose what mob you want to spawn.

ok when did you get minecraft? :3
ok so that thing made out of cobble and moss stone is called a dungeon.
It has chests in it and that cage with a zombie in it is a mob/monster spawner.

Sometimes a monster spawner will have either a spider or skeleton in it.

At first I thought this was a troll, but then I realized that I'm rather experienced compared to new players, who've probably never seen a Dungeon before, so they don't know what to expect.
Anyway, a dungeon is basically a small Cobble room (with some Moss Cobble, too) in which a mob out of either a skeleton, spider or zombie will have a spawner within the dungeon, meaning that a very large concentration of that mob will spawn. Within the chests, there are a few rewards (including the chests themselves), in which most can only be found in Dungeons.

Nice, your first dungeon! You shall receive rewards yet watch out for those pesky monsters! I remember my very first mob spawner, good times. Enjoy Minecraft! There are a bunch more things you haven't explored!

it took me 2-3 weeks of playing before I found MY first dungeon. (took me longer to try playing off peaceful mode.)

Same! The only time I actually took peaceful off was when I played my first server with monsters with other people helping me kill them. In singleplayer I was all alone, but finally I faced my fears and started killing those creepers!

Five minutes later I died...

You, sir, found dungeon! Dungeons are rare rooms that only spawn in caves! The thing on fire with the zombie in it is a mob spawner! If you don't play on peaceful, it will spawn one type of mob (usually the one spinning in the middle) at random until the whole room is over light level seven. Those chests always hold goodies too.

It's a dungeon. Normally that cage thing would start creating zombies, but if you are on peaceful, or just lit up the room, then it wont do anything. You cannot collect the cage, but you can still break it. The greenish cobblestone blocks can only be found in a dungeon, and the chests might have iron ingots, buckets, string, gunpowder, wheat, bread, a saddle, an apple, coco beans, or a green/gold record.

MDaddy, if you are planning on trolling BabyEagleFoot for his lack of Minecraft knowledge, I would suggest deciding otherwise.

Haha, not trying to be mean but I laughed so hard because you asked this. Its a dungeon. That fire cage is a monster spawner. That one spawns zombies when not on peaceful. The chests contain things only available through dungeons XD And that mossy stone there is only in dungeons. P

I like how you laugh at his question, then go on to say that the chests only have things that cannot be obtained anywhere else. Think before you speak.
