Hi... new here. I've built a villager trading hall (youtube/logicalgeekboy), and want to use the cured villager zombie method for reducing the cost of trades. However, whenever I place a zombie in contact with a villager, the villager is actually killed not turned into a zombie villager. I've lost 20+ villagers this way. I've been successful in getting a zombified villager 4 times which were subsequently killed by a zombie when I tried a second round.
Every video on youtube seems to indicate that it's fairly straight forward... haven't found anyone even hinting that this should be a problem. Google has not been kind to me and wasn't able to find anything on the forum either. Anyone have an idea what I might be doing wrong?
