Thank you all for the nice feedback in the last episode! Today I show, like I promised, the design of our new monsterfarm, and I try to explain the ideas behind it in detail, which ends up in a pretty long monologue ;-).

To some up the advantages:
- no need to light up caves !!!!!!
-high efficency ( 10 items/h per pressure plate)
-low redstone consumption compared to normal piston pushers
-relatively low building time
-can be nearly infinetly extended
-still too expensive for a freshly started world
- you cannot directly collect the items
for our size (1400 spawnpads) you need:
min 4 stacks ice , better 8
~7-8 double chests cobble (you can buid the the trap out of something else, but you need nearly 2 double chests cobble for crafting the pistons and for the stone)
-2800 stone ( alreadyincluded in the amount of cobble ( you can also use wooden ones, but I don't like them ;-) )
