How much space do mob spawners need?

The spawner spawns mobs in a 9×3×9 volume (see § Mechanics) around it when the player is within 16 blocks. Suitable spawning locations for the block’s mob type are provided in or around the spawning volume. The spawner attempts to spawn four mobs around it, then waits from 10 to 39.95 seconds before spawning more.

How do I increase my spawner spawn rate?

To increase mob spawn rates, players have to light up all caves, ravines, and all other spawning areas in a radius of 128 blocks from the spawning platform. Minecraft only allows a limited number of hostile mobs to spawn. If the limit is already filled, no new mobs are going to spawn.

How big should a zombie spawner be?

For mobs to spawn very efficiently you want to be 128 blocks away from any other potential spawning points for them (blocks with block light lower than 8), so you should be 128 blocks above the highest block in an 128 x 128 area around your spawner.

Does tick speed affect mob spawners?

This won’t increase the speed of the spawner itself, but of the whole world; increase the speed of random ticks by using /gamerule randomTickSpeed (anything larger than the default of 3) to speed up things that are randomly ticked, which should include spawners.

How many skeletons can a spawner spawn?

four mobs
Monster spawners can spawn up to four mobs at once.

Can you get a zombie spawner?

There is simply no way to craft zombie spawners, or any spawner as a matter of fact. It is possible to use the /setblock command to place custom spawners in a particular location, however.

How do you make a zombie spawner faster?

Usage. Spawners can be used to make very effective “Mob Grinders”, as they spawn more mobs faster when a player is in the spawner’s vicinity. The best way to make one is by first make a large dark room around the spawner, then place down a “floor” 3-5 blocks below the spawner.

Does turning up tick speed make mobs spawn faster?

The best way to describe the spawn rate to game speed is as a plateau. Basically assuming your computer runs minecraft smoothly the spawn rate will stay constant but if you go slower less mobs per unit of time because your computer isn’t going through ticks fast rough comparable to real passage of time.
