    I use it for automatic pumpkin, cooked chicken, raw chicken, paper, and cattle farms, and storage systems to keep my items organized.

    It is very beneficial to have an iron farm for all the hoppers you'll need.

    if you open up the inventory screen, and look at the recipe book, there will be a compass icon on the uppermost tab.

    You don't have to build one, it works and will point to spawn!

    yes. The design is layers of blocks as follows (I can't send pics, as I am on the work computer):

    ring of 10 blocks with a 1x2 hole in the middle. water flows to the bottom inside those 2 blocks, and hoppers collect the drops at the bottom. the 2 center blocks at the ends of the ring hold up the next layer, and also force the pumpkin plants to grow fruit in the middle blocks (yes, dirt)

    The four corners have one plant each, and the pumpkins grow on both sides next to the water. there are pistons behind those to push the pumpkins off.

    If I remember correctly, it looks likes this:


    X=any block / P = piston / T = tilled earth / D = dirt/ S=space / W = water / L = ladder


    Business layer:

    S X P P X S

    X T D D T X

    S X WW X L

    X T D D T X

    S X P P X S


    Alternate layer:

    X S X X S X

    S S S S S S

    S X WW X L

    S S S S S S

    X S X X S X

    If you need to kill your villagers later, when you've exhausted their trade usage, or if they are nitwits...you can pick them up in minecart and roll them into a cactus. Use a hopper to collect the cart (Under the last rail before the cactus) and then re-use the cart for next time. Since the cactus did the deed, you won't be penalized for the kill!

    Also: try hitting "F3" + "G" - it will show the chunk border lines on the screen.

    Just wait a while - trade lots, give them food - eventually they will breed again.

    Does anyone know why my perfectly good stack-able design pumpkin farm no longer produces fruit on any other layer than the top? Do the pumpkins now need direct access to sunlight?
