How do you make your own slime spawner?

Before making your slime spawner, you need to fully analyze the area that you would build it in. However, keep in mind that you can make your own slime spawner farm. All you need to do is put in some extra effort and you will maximize the benefits of these mobs.

  1. Decide on the building matters

    • You can choose between having to build on a slime chunk or swamp biome. Note that there is a 10% chance that a world will generate a slime chunk. By choosing slime chunks, you need to dig out an underground room first.
    • In contrast, building on swamp biomes will not require the previous dig-outs. However, the spawn rate is even lower than that of the slime chunk
    • Slimes spawn on certain regions on a map. So, if you see a slime spawning on a particular place, that indicates that it is a good place for building your own slime spawner.
  2. Make spawning places that are at least 5 blocks tall. These spawning spaces are where you want the slimes to spawn, and you will eventually lure them to a killing trap.

    • Slimes need a space requirement to spawn. Hence, you need to have a space without obstructions, whether solid or liquid.
    • The size of slimes also varies depending on your version’s regional difficulty.
  3. Also, note that slimes spawn regardless of the light levels of the area. Hence, you do not need to have your farm under low light. This also saves you from unwanted creepers in the dark.

  4. The last step to follow is building your separation and the farm’s killing trap.


An additional step that you can try doing is creating another hole below your killing trap. This will help you automatically collect the slimeballs that are dropped after farming in your spawning space.

Also, it would be best to come down to your constructed slime spawner during nighttime. Slime best spawn during this time and expect to encounter a lot of them in the evening.
