  • Villagers will have the default brown clothes
  • Squids need water.
  • Slimes need depth and their special chunks.
  • Wither can spawn in the Overworld.

Good to know

  • Spawner block was not changed, all other spawner mods will still work.
  • Maps built with this mod don’t require it.
  • Built spawners are legit, no new contents was added.
  • What you craft is Spawner Builder item, which can build the real spawners.
  • The skeleton spawner spawns Wither Skeletons in the nether.




In survival, obtaining a spawner can be hard, because it requires you to find a jungle temple. First up. we’re going to craft the spawner’s core, which contains the main properties of the spawner.


Now to finish the spawner by surrounding the core with iron bars.



(M being moss stone, R iron ingot)
X being the particular item given to the mob, read above.
