Affects Version/s: Minecraft 1.14.2, 1.14.4, 20w16a, 1.16.1
Fix Version/s: None
Since 1.14, slimes in spawn chunks (and from spawners?) spawn less frequently if there are any blocks (even glass) above their spawning spaces.
- Find a slime chunk
- Clear it completely, down to level 4 (for example) and make sure the spawning platform is adequately lit
- Count how many slimes spawn in a certain time frame
- Fill layers 20 to 64 with blocks (for example, you can also choose another amount of layers)
- Count again how many slimes spawn in the same amount of times
→ Significantly less slimes spawned
In my survival, I built a slime farm and I checked for slime chunks, and yet, slimes still aren't spawning. So I went to creative because I have cheats on and tried to spawn one with an egg but these slimes will just pop into existence and then pop out. I tried this in my farm and on the surface for about 10 minutes to no avail.
