I recently made the jump from Minecraft xb1 to just standard Minecraft. (Still playing on xb1)
I have noticed a drastic decrease in mobs in my world. I even bumped the difficulty to hard. I took a potion of fire resistance (8 min) and the entire time I was in the Nether I saw nothing but a couple zombie pigman as well.
Before I switched versions I was finding mobs just fine in the overworld and the nether, getting 2-3 endermen a night .. and now I rarely see anything. What gives? Is this a known bug? Can I fix this?
Welcome to the bedrock edition where everything is reduced so that mobile players can handle the game without performance issues.
Actually, in a recent Minecraft stream with Helen, I asked her about bumping up the mob density and overall count, to which she stated that too many people are complaining about there being too many mobs in the game. Would really like to know where they are getting their feedback from, as I've seen this type of post countless times here, and the bug tracker is also chock-full of lack of mobs.
