I think that this page needs to be updated, since water doesn't flow quite the same after the 1.0 update.

This article is in TERRIBLE shape, and needs some serious help.

Squid trap maybe?[edit]

I think this still works in 1.5, but it worked before.

Dig a 6x6 hole at a y level where squids can spawn. Then dig a 4x4 hole in the middle. Dig a 2x2 shaft in the middle and then make a room. Cover the floor with glass panes/iron bars. Make a collection area below that. Fill the 6x6 area with water. It should look like a funnel. Squids will spawn on the top layer and swim into the 2x2 shaft. Once they do, they will fall beneath the glass panes/iron bars and suffocate due to lack of water down there. Free ink sacs anyone? 00:47, 5 May 2013 (UTC)


There needs to be an edit involving Endermen because using water to collect them dosen't work since they teleport whenever they touch water -- 02:34, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Entire area copied[edit]

An entire area of the article, like 4 topics, are copied on this page! How did this happen? Miraklemax 14:57, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Bad editing. Fixed. -- Orthotope talk 16:28, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Lava Trap[edit]

Does it still work? rebuild it like tut vid said, but all items dropped by killed animals are also gettin destroyed in lava... –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 15:03, 25 November 2014‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Maybe the animals swim up the lava. I didn't played Minecraft much, so I don't know a perfect work-around. Try using other grinders. --Naista2002Book and Quill JE2 BE2.png Iron Pickaxe JE3 BE2.png 15:17, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
They actually swim up the water, so they touch the lava several times and die. while dieing they drop their items which also burn in lava and gettin destroyed. anyone andy idea? suggestions? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 11:17, 26 November 2014 (UTC).

Letter grids[edit]

Mainly present in the sections Minecraft PE Funnel Fall Damage Grinder and Minecraft PE Fall damage grinder. These sections contain ugly grids of text that are used as a form of lazy "blueprints", rather than the diagrams recommended in the redstone style guide (sorry about no link, don't know how to do a link. I'm a noob :P) Here is one of them, copied straight from the page:

 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
 1 1 2 2 2 1 1
 1 1 2 O 2 1 1
 1 1 2 2 2 1 1
 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

Ugh, isn't that ugly? That's what I think. We should also update the whole page. At least replace the text diagrams with images, if the recommended diagrams are hard. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 19:12, 23 January 2018 (UTC).
