Question from MarioMan12598

Monster trap?

I was making a monster trap to make enemies spawn on a floor
and flow into water to make them drown - the problem is, can enemies spawn on land if there is water only one block high? If it's land, enemies DO spawn there, but I know they don't spawn in the ocean. If water is only 1 block high (so they can breath) can they spawn on it?

MarioMan12598 provided additional details:


Thanks! This helped and the trap worked out Great! It's still in action, but I made a skytrap too that makes them fall and die, but yours worked out great.

Well, I can see where you're coming from and it is a smart idea. Though, to what I know, they cannot spawn in water. Though, if you have a spawn area for Mobs, you probably can have a pressure plate which could be inside the spawn point. Say, have the pressure plate near a door and that room is filled with water. You should be able to get the mob to step on the plate, and have the water rush in, drowning them.

It may be worth a shot. Let me know how it works!
