So recently I went to water some remaining blocks in the end to increase spawn rate of the enderender. I did manage to completely cover every square but the spawn rate didn’t go up by much. Then I went to check up top to see if maybe I could figure out if there was another problem when I noticed something. I checked for a couple of minutes what happened with the endermite and it attracting the endermen when I noticed the endermen often just standing at the edge of the hole (see screenshot)
Often, a bunch of endermen would just stand on top of the edge of the trapdoor and wait to be pushed down by new spawning endermen, then the process would repeat itself and a large portion of new endermen would just do the same thing, not dropping down. This would obviously decrease the amount of endermen falling down.
Is it possible the trapdoors are just in the way, preventing a full flow of endermen dropping down constantly? Should we try getting rid of those trapdoors? Or am I full of shit and is this just a normal thing that’s supposed to be happening?
I would also like to point out that endermen often also spawn on top of the wooden half slabs (believe it or not)
Please excuse me if all this comes off as far-fetched or dimwitted. I would very much like a proper debate going on what could be wrong with the current enderender.
Thanks for reading!
