WARNING: Once a spawner-configuration file has been loaded onto a running server, it can only be edited by ingame commands. If you want to edit an already loaded spawner-configuration file in a text-editor, you have to stop the server before you edit the file.
Spawners allow you to define specific points in your worlds at which your custom mob creations can spawn. They can be used with a variety of useful options such as; conditions, built-in timers, cooldowns, and warmups.
You can create spawners directly ingame by using Commands or by creating the a configuration file in the folder /MythicMobs/Spawners.
Pros of Spawners
- Doesn't require natural mob spawning to be enabled to work.
- Allows for much more control over your spawning implementation as you can specify exactly where and how each mob spawn.
- Support timers, leashing and other features.
- Great for populating small arenas or dungeons.
Cons of Spawners
- Setup can be time consuming, especially for larger implementations.
- Can become very difficult to manage if not planned out correctly.
- Mobs need to be configured appropriately.
