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

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 :)

FYI, in 1.0 this not only drops a much less impressive number of items, but items fall out of the grinder and onto random places on the ground all around the thing... =/

Yeah, the only one of my traps I've updated to 1.0 standards is The Orb v2. Time, I always need more of it. Hopefully I'll get this updated soon :)

Well I don't have the world save, but I do have the schematic. I am finding that it isn't producing spawns like it used to, I tested this when it was first released and it's item/hr was about on spot, but there has been some kind of change to Minecraft and now it's a lot lower. I just let it run for 2 hours and there wasn't much spawned. Either way, here's the plans: http://www.mediafire.com/file/2zv4lrfpx6vanfp/behemoth-3-by-ml32_22182_schematic.schematic

I have an exact replica built on an SMP server. I can try to get the server owner to copy it and save the the world edit to a single player world. Or better yet I think there is a mod that allows you to copy portions of world into a single player automatically. If enough people (or three_two) would like this I'll attempt to get a world save.

I love this one a ton. Trying to recreate it underground in my world. This may be extremely noobish, but I can't seem to make the inward flowing channels. Is there a video or instructions somewhere for that piece?

Not noobish at all. I guess Mojang saw those inward currents as a glitch in the water physics and patched it in beta 1.6 so, youll have to figure out a workaround for it. Either 5 block wide channels or 3-block wide channels with the water sources place one block wider on each side.

How did you thwart spiders? They are the #1 problem I have in my mob grinder. Mine's nowhere near as enormous as yours...only four stories of spawn floors, one channel floor, and then a kill/collection floor. It works great for everything except skeletons, who just crawl all over everything and never get caught by the water channels.

Take a look at image 4/11. I put a cactus under my lava blades for the spiders. As for the skellys, without seeing your spawning floors, I'd assume you're giving them too much room to wander around. Try and design your floors around your channels so they spawn and don't have much choice but to wander right in.

Heh in that last sentence I meant spiders, for some reason typed skeletons. My bad. I have no problem with skeletons. And yeah last night I was talking to a friend who built a mob grinder, and he also suggested the cactus solution. This is the mob grinder I built, block for block. As I said above, I built it with four spawning floors.

Im thinking of building this in the worldguard area I have on a particular roleplay/pvp server I play, particularly because of its small size (Worldguard extends from bedrock to sky limit), the server usually has between 5 and 30 players on, so I know I can't expect 12000 an hour, but does anyone have an approximate number I could expect?

Also, how scalable in width is it, I have 128 height to put it in, but if I find myself with say a 64 by 64 area, which is almost double the Behemoth 3's diameter (I think I counted 33 in diameter), can I effectively double the two flat dimensions to give me more drops? (And would it give me more drops, I would assume so if there is spawnable land around?)

Also, is there a point to the hollow inside? Would it become more effective if I was to add more spawning floor inside?

I can't say I've tried this on a SMP but, I'm guessing you should still be able to pull 7-10,000 out of it. Of course, I cut out everything around it to max output. The key to efficiency is isolating the spawning within the tower. From the collection point, there should be a 144 block perimeter around the tower where, if your not going to cut everything out, at least try to explore all the cave systems and light them with torches. Either way, even if it only puts out 5,000 an hour, should still be plenty of loot for your server! Good luck :)

Ok, Ill let you know how it goes, when we eventually get around to it. It will be in an area that doesnt spawn (spawn city, completely half slabbed)

No, something is wrong with the file i tried your project: ''The orb'' it wasnt there either the file has reversed to its first state when nothing was built!!!

There's nothing wrong with either file (I checked.) They certainly haven't "reversed to it's first state when nothing was built." LOL!

Yo I know I sound like a noober here, but I've tore this thing apart trying to figure it out haha. Where do the mobs spawn? I always thought they needed at least 3 squares of space between the floor & ceiling and wouldn't spawn on water. Where are they all coming from? lol!

The mobs spawn on the stone areas surrounding the water channels (you can't see it in the images but you can see it in the video). Mobs only need two vertical blocks to spawn. The spawning rules on the amount of horizontal blocks gets a bit more complicated :D

This has to be one of the coolest things I have ever seen made for Minecraft. Down right ingenious.

How tall is this?? Is it lower than 64 blocks? I ask only for to make it into a schematic and place it in my own world but i dont want to place it down to the bedrock :I

Nah it's bedrock to height limit. Every spawn floor is exactly the same though, so you could easily crop it off at just about any height you want then put a new roof on it. Of course that will effect the output to a certain degree :)
