Mobspawner Farms - What to do if there are too many

Discussion in 'Performance Tweaking' started by MinecraftAdmin, Jul 27, 2013.

  1. Added a silk-touch spawner plugin to my 100+ player server.
    Now there are too many spawner farms on the server.
    Some have over 200+ spawners all in one place.
    Any ideas on how to prevent this? Or maybe just the lag from them?

    Why do they have 200+ spawners in one place??

    I have a cronjob to kill them every 20mins or so.
  3. Thanks for input!
    Is it possible to setup something that kills them only around spawners?
    They regenerate very quickly. A console butcher kills 4000 of them, 10 seconds later, they're back to 4500-5000 of them.

    Don't think a spawner butcher only exist, probably very resource intensive if you add it.

    I guess your world is rather large and they xrayed all of them. :(

    This plugin might help.
    Maybe extend it to 15 spawns per chunk per minute? /setmobspawnrate 15 1
    Then the small time farms get along fine, and the big ones get punished. Reminds me of the recent changes to Tf2 idling. Heh.
  6. Excellent suggestions! Ill try them out and report back! Thanks :D
