    So i create a new island on the server, blah, blah, blah, i progress pretty far, and i make an arena to fight hostile mobs, BUT WAIT. They can't even spawn! So i try building it farther and still no mobs!
    please give me an explanation on why this is happening or if this could be fixed, its becoming a real problem, please help

    You need to build an "antenna" of sorts.



    And yes, this works, I did it.
    But I have since removed it, and I still get mobs to spawn. Granted, my island is as big as you can possibly make it while remaining in your airspace, and half is unlit.

    What about baby chickens? i harvested 3 baby chickens and they aren't growing! it might be the same thing, or maybe its just the chickens growing VERY slow.

    As far as I know, this only makes hostile mobs spawn. Althought now you have me thinking... I wonder if I can build one of those over a well lit grass area and get natural animals...


    Anyway, your chickens should turn into full grown chickens in about 20 minutes, as long as you are on your island at the time. Leaving your island will make you island stop "ticking"
    Also, don't be surprised if you get online and your chickens are all of a sudden gone. Animals get purged quite often because some people feel the need to have HUGE 1,000+ animal farms, which slows the server.

    That is absolutely bs, you cannot light other places to attract mobs to a certain area... I made an atenna, and it did not work

    It's not BS, I've done it, and it works...

    But sure what you mean by lighting other places, though.

    But I'm still lost, why exactly are you putting torches everywhere? To stop mobs from spawning?

    Stone, buy a 5 buck mob spawner (irl money) or go ahead and type /warp mob
    A mob spawner on your island (the cobble one with antenna, not the auto one) is practically useless.

    Than you are forced to use the giant arena of many players at /warp mob.
    If you refuse to do even this, you will have to suffer about 3 mobs in 20 minutes...

    Buying the spawner is the second best option after getting $100 donor.
