Hostile Mob Spawnrate...Nothing?

Discussion in 'Spigot Help' started by Androob, Nov 16, 2015.

  1. Hello Everyone!

    I have a problem with my mob spawn rates, let me explain this to you.

    Basically, at night mobs are not present.. little to none despite being on hard and having all the settings set correctly, players are questioning "where the mobs at" I tell them its on hard, and sure enough nothing is there. A while back I remember changing settings in the spigot and bukkit YML (which ill post below).

    MY GOAL: Allow VANILLA Hard mode mob spawn rates/damage nothing more, nothing less. My server is advertised as hard mode, I'd like to see some mobs at night..

    **If you'd like a complete plugin list I can provide that upon request**


    Spigot.YML:
    Code (Text):
    # This is the main configuration file for Spigot.
    # As you can see, there's tons to configure. Some options may impact gameplay, so use
    # with caution, and make sure you know what each option does before configuring.
    # For a reference for any variable inside this file, check out the Spigot wiki at
    # http://www.spigotmc.org/wiki/spigot-configuration/

  2. Restart both of your config and update your spigot jar.
    If it's still not working give us your startup log and your plugin list.
