mob spawner

Minecraft Block

Mob Spawners , also known as Monster Spawners , are Blocks with a transparent, black, cage-like lattice structure found in various locations. Inside the Block, there are flames that don't give off any light, and a miniature spinning version of the Mob it spawns, which slowly increases speed until the next group of Mobs is spawned. When mined with a Pickaxe , they drop experience but it cannot be obtained, even with Silk Touch . The only way to obtain it is by using command line cheats.They are one of the few blocks not usable/placeable in Creative Mode . It is possible to get this Block through the /give command, but it will only spawn Pigs , even with the correct details. However, the /setblock command can be used to place monster spawners with a mob of choice, provided that it is used with the correct NBT data. In Minecraft: Pocket Edition from Update 0.9.0 and in the PC Edition starting with snapshot 14w28b, the Mob spawned can be set by using a Spawn Egg on it.
