As you know by now, 1.13 is around the corner with some quite drastic changes to the way a lot of base game mechanics are working. Specifically, Items will float: This means that you can transport items vertically upwards in a water column. Interestingly, stuff dropped into 1-block high water with air below still falls through. It seems that a transport is best done with a dropper at the base of the water.
Anyone has a better way to insert items into a water column? Will you change your mob farms?
I probably will only change what stops to work. I hope that items that come in running water over a hopper will still be dragged into the hopper and will not stay up floating..
Yeah I tested that, they fall into the hopper
I’ve rebuilt most of my farms already. I am debating on using the floating items as an elevator but need to test for loss and speed. No idea yet on how to rebuild my 6 way spider spawner, but I saw a cool idea using beds with water streams to move mobs in a flat line.
I just downloaded the latest snapshot.. now all undead mobs won’t float or swim. That means all zombie/skelly spawner set-up water elevator will cease to work.. food for thought ;p
its more environmentally friendly to kill at source than transporting mobs. Think about the environment!
That absolutely ruins most xp farm falling designs.. thanks, mojang.
Change is good.
It will get the brain cells working again.
