Introduction: Simple Mob Farm

About: Hello! I will be bringing you traps, tricks, and all sorts of stuff for Minecraft PE. (And, if my computer agrees to stay on for more than 5 seconds, The occasional PC article)

In this Instructable, I will show you how to build a simple, starter mob farm.

Step 1: First Farm

Start by making a 26 high block pillar

Step 2: Channels

Make a cross with 7 blocks on each arm.

Step 3: Levels

Add the secondary spawn levels

Step 4: Spawning

Add the primary spawn level,the water and the signs.

Step 5: Walls

Add the foundations for the walls.

Step 6: Building Higher

Add the second level to the walls. Make sure they look like the ones in the photo.

Step 7: Taking Cover

Add the roof and you are done!

if not working: check the lighting levels inside, if too bright it will not work. Torches cannot be inside or it will not work, also too keep mobs from spawning on the roof of it place torches or slabs (I personally prefer slabs depending on the look). You only really need four signs in by the water assuming there are only two streams per direction since the hole will be 2x2, etc

Im doing this in hardcore mode and a zombie villager spawned while i was adding the finishing touches, a mob has not spawned since. im playing the newest snapshot so maybe they nerfed it?

No but making it at 24-25 is more optimized because mobs spawn better. 26 is insta kill though
