I found a Ocean monument in Arda and am thinking of making it into a public place/farm for prismarine and other drop items from guardians.

I wanted to see if anybody want to help me dredge it and Co tribute resources towards it (iron, hoppers, etc)?

It's a little out of the way but once up and running people can either set a home or we can look into an airship or something but I wanted to get input/thoughts on it before I started.

My initial thoughts are:
Make it player activated where dispensers make spawnable areas for dropping areas
Minecart pickup with rails powered by player activation
Have a different section where the fall softens them to be used as an XP grinder
Players will have to shift between activating pads to discourage AFK or should I just let the servers AFK kick handle that?
Sorting system for drops into prismarine shards, crystals, fish

I've got irons in a lot of fires right now, both in MC and IRL so I don't want to get too committed, but I can definitely put resources toward the project, if not time. Just let me know what you need or how I can help.

I have maybe around a thousand sticky pistons. If you need some for the guardian farm, I'd be glad to spare some.

Same here, got plenty of resources. If you need stuff just give me a shout as to what you need.

Thanks. Right now the biggest immediate need is glass (or large batches of sand for glass). I'll also need redstone for the wiring and dispensors and buckets/iron.

As mentioned by LWK in another post server impact is a no-no so the priority will be low impact so I plan on redundant redstone cutoff but not of that I can supply.

Thanks for the help and I'll let you know whatelse is needed, etc.

I'll try and get the coords when I'm back home, Lord willing

Heres the status so far. With the help of SmellyTramp and pixel_chic most of the temple area has been dredged (I have a little bit more to go).

Ive also been setting up a few test spawn areas to see if/how the Guardians will spawn above sea level, etc.

They don't spawn above sea level (even if covered) but I may be able to enclose them in to make it happen.

If not then I will have to cut away part of the monument to give sufficient height for the spawning area, etc.

I'm going to do some calculations to see how many more resources are needed and thanks for all the help and support.

Good Evening AdmiAdama,

I believe that guardians only spawn from y:39 to y:61.  This link should take you to a video by docm77 and JL2579, which explains a little about the guardian spawning and is also a tutorial for a massive guardian farm.  At about 2:34, they begin to explain the volume that the guardians can spawn with in.  Basically it is the monument's footprint (a 57 block by 57 block square) between y:39 and y:61.  Hope this helps.

Respectfully,

si1entSASQUATCH

It does help and confirms what I'm seeing as well. I'll need to clear out some of the structure for sufficient space and fall damage or use lava

Here's the basic idea I'm going with verses a drop based method

FullSizeRender2.jpgImage Enlarger

Cursory review of materials I need:
For Mob softener and killer
1995 dispensers
1995 fence gates

16 hoppers
127 repeaters
128 Redstone blocks
8 chests
8 trapped chests

For auto item sorter
16 comparator
32 chests
64 repeaters
3 Redstone blocks
64 hoppers (will space the units out to stop overflow issues)

There are others but I can get them easily

As always I could use any help you can offer to cleanup water, build, etc

Considering the drop rate and effect on the server I'm going to start smaller on the farm spawn area and let you know if we need more.

I'm pretty certain that the item sorter supplies will remain the same though

I've had a ton of help from SmellyTramp and pixel_chic which has really helped to speed this along

That sounds great. What I can do is make a sub claim with a donation chest that anybody can drop stuff into.

Also, speaking of, I wanted to give credit for all the build and support help and here's what I have so far. I should have taken better note so if I left anybody off please correct me:
SmellyTramp - build and supplies
Pixel_chic - build and supplies
Rangasp - build and supplies
JSchub - supplies
Tedisvet- supplies
MikeB1974 - supplies
si1entSASQUATCH - build, supplies and research

The farm is coming along very well.  Here's a few photos I took (still a bit more to add but it's operational and gather drops)

Also, For those who contributed towards the farm I wanted to ask if you have a banner (e.g. sigul/symbol representing you) as I'd like to place them at the farm with your name below

 

Now, on to the pics

 

Here we see an Enderman checking out the sorting system

Hey Adml, It's looking great! I've got a banner, if you were talking about banners for supply people too; I know your builders put a lot more time into this project. 

(I'll post the link to the site I used to generate this in the tips & tricks topic in case anyone else wants to develop a banner.)

Absolutely for all of you.  Please bring the banner and place it in the chests with the ink sacs and I'll set it up and tell me what text to put on the sign below it.

Greetings!

On one of my regular cruises around the exciting seas of Arda i got stranded on this beautiful and mysterious island in the middle of nowhere. all flat and square.

After a few moments of catching my breath i realised this island is no ordinary island and i left the wreckage of my ship to discover more of the unknown land i now had discovered.

After wandering around in circles for a while i reached the middle and found what seemed like a trace of modern technology consisting of four flat plates, hinting something far greater below.

Since i had nothing to lose and wasn't in the mood of swimming i stepped up unto one of the four plates realising it could be the last i see of the world as i know it.

Immediately an elevator took  me deeper and deeper down below the surface revealing the greatest underwater structure known to man, eventually it stopped and i stepped out discovering yet more traces of civilization.

after stumbling about for a while in amazement i fell  and accidentally hit two separate switches with the result of two showers appearing.

Since i by now was soaking in sweat i couldn't resist and stepped in. after some very refreshing moments under the water i continued my explorations.

I discover a box filled with a for me unknown species which seemed rather hostile, since i am a master of the sword i pulled it out and quickly ended their miserable lifes making yet another discovery.

It seemed like different items, these also unknown to me fell from them at their death and got vacuumed up by some sort of mechanisms below their little prison.

This cought my attention and yet again i started investigating the areas of this underwater world yet unknown to me. what i discover what some sort of treasury filled with containers which in turn was filled with various items all unknown to the civilization above (allthough i had heard rumours of these thing existing)

I wouldn't know how to handle the situation, these items really called out to me and i felt cravings stronger thean ever, i wanted these items really bad but i didn't know why.

this overwhelming feeling made me go bananas and i ran out of there, fled up the elevators and swam for my life until i safely reached shore, after which i found horse which took me back home.

After a good nights sleep i started thinking, wondering if those items in the containers were public, free to take or would that have put me under a terrible spell?

 

P.S. i might have forgotten to turn off the "showers"
