"The Pit" was created as a Mega Mob Grinder on a SMP server where we were in dire need of massive supplies (mostly gunpowder for tunneling/demolition and arrows).

The whole of this build was done without cheating, the project took several months to fully complete and has delivered plenty of goods to make up for the time.

Its design featured a mine-cart system which was unique to this project and seemed to work really well with several beneficial aspects.

Most grinders stopped working after a few hours of idling but due to the constant movement being inside the cart system you never went into idling mode as you kept updating chunks whilst also luring mobs towards you as they could see you but not reach you, this enabling a non-stop stream of loot/items.

Sadly Endermans being able to grab every block did a lot of damage to the grinder and it has been out of use since. But I still wanted to share this video with you.

There will be a updated version of "The Pit" making sure it works with the full Minecraft release, but this is now a long term project as I still have loads of stash from having "The Pit" up and running and have various other projects I'd rather spend time on.

There will be more videos coming of builds on our server as we have a lot of great landmarks to show.
