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 :)

33,000k 36,000k
Thanks to the new spawn rates in Beta 1.5, The Orb is kicking out 36,000 items/hr on average. The large fluctuations in drop rate have vanished for some reason. I have tested this thoroughly but, it's possible The Orb could produce up to 40,000k.

I also added a MCMap Live image so this wasn't a total "air bump"

This trap is over a year old. It doesn't work with all the changes to the game's mechanics in the last year. The save file was deleted because Random House Publishing has flagged the save as copyright infringement on one of their books titled "The Orb Project."

Happy?

Your designs are really incredible, and don't get me wrong I love the grandiosity of the huge grinders. I'd also be really interested to see though what you could come up with as far as a maximum efficiency, smaller scale grinder that would be practical/possible to build in a smp setting. Keep up the great work! =D

Well, it was never meant to spawn "passive" mobs. The "hostile" mob spawning has been compromised by the release of Minecraft 1.0. I haven't looked into the possible causes and solutions yet.

So, will you be making a mob trap for 1.8 or 1.9? cause the endermen tore apart a test mob trap, and now I know how to prevent them from spawing in my towers. I released some new stufff, so check it out when you can.

I still cant make it so my creations are in space like yours, plz help

Hey, do you know how to prevent squids from spawning in water canals? My cactus farm is having more squid than cacti, more to say, Is there a way to get rid of all of the squid clogging my farm?

just out of curiosity are you able to use ladders instead of signs? as your warning mentions many signs being used? (im assuming) u are using the signs as water stoppers..

Actually the sign are used on the spawn floors to trick the mobs into walking off. Ladders offer a foothold for mobs and drops to get caught on. With signs, they just pass right through :)
