I'm talking basic mobs (Creepers, Skeles, Endermen, Spiders) and spawn out of thin air. Not the cage thingies.
What about Pig Zombies? They appear to spawn like only 5 blocks away (read: behind)from me. --- It's better to say little and let people merely suspect your ignorance than to speak incessantly and have them know for sure

They can't spawn within 24 blocks of the player (in any direction), or above light level 7. Zombie Pigmen will spawn in any 2-high space in the Nether, regardless of distance from the player. --- There was a HOLE here, now it's in Henry Townshend's bathroom-yay4gippali

No mob can spawn with in a 24 block sphere of you.
Normal hostile mobs will spawn in light level 7 or lower. The lower the light the greater the chance to spawn. so you will get more at light level 0-1 then you would 6-7.
As for Zombie Pigmen, I couldn't tell you other then light doesn't effect their spawning.

What about a maximum distance? --- It's better to say little and let people merely suspect your ignorance than to speak incessantly and have them know for sure
