    Dear MineHeroes community!

    We are now at a point where cheaper spawners make more money than expensive ones.

    The go-to spawner to start with is now Pigs, get 60k pigs to make money buy Iron Golems.
    This is not fun anymore.

    I remember two seasons ago when I played survival that I started with pigs, and slowly I changed everything to Skeletons, then slowly everything got changed to creepers.

    But since Pigs/Sheep/Cows make more than expensive spawners such as Slimes, Skeletons, Zombies its just Pigs, a few weeks later IG.

    I would like to see every spawner redone and make money that fits the price.

    Let's say MineHeroes wants a return rate of 4 days on every spawner.

    The people would start with pigs when they are out of alts/auto sell chests, they change to skeletons since they make more per grinder. And so it continues step by step.

    Or

    MineHeroes could make pigs on average 4 days return rate, then skeletons 5 days. then creeper 6 days then ig 7 days. The more expensive the spawner the longer it takes to make the money back. One grinder of a more expensive spawner will take longer to earn back, but per grinder they make more money.
    Negative: takes longer to earn money back.
    Positive: Makes more money per grinder

    This will slow down the economy. And make it fun again.

    How can this be achieved? This can be achieved by having Developers who actually play and know what is going on/intense testing and tweaking by developers. I know it is impossible to have exactly X days return rate, but on average it can come close to that.

    Regards,

    Atak

    I would love that and I am working and getting data for such a thing.
    I set up 2 testing chambers for mob spawners at my island. I let mobs spawn in there for 1 hour and safe up all the items and store them away. Then I list all the items that dropped with amount. To make this data usefull for us players right now I calculate how much money that would be. But for the dev team there will still be item amounts which could have tweaked value.

    This is my goal and I'm currently looking into buffing the higher end spawners without causing the current economy to break, however will tweak the smaller spawners only if they really need it.

    I'm testing the current money spawners give and will be buffing any I feel need it.

    What if... We added back spawner levels (must be a certain /level to mine, break, and use certain spawners)

    For real though, I feel like the other spawners get pretty useless towards end of every map, and that's unfortunate side of things. Nothing you can really do about that other than giving them some good use like this at start of map

    I think that in order to accomplish a balanced system where diverse spawner types are favored in the economy we would need to equalize the income value of the top tier of all spawner types.

    In other words:

    1 . Set up an efficient farm of each spawner type. Upgrade the spawner in those farms to top level.
    2. Connect an ASC to each farm and measure your balance over a set time. Create and fill in spreadsheet.
    3. Adjust drops and/or prices of the drops to balance.
    4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until balanced.
    5. Adjust lower tiers of upgradeable spawners accordingly.
    6. Make intra-season adjustments based on new farming techniques that are discovered or when new content is added like new mob levels.

    Doing all this would place the emphasis on building better, more efficient designs and encourage players to try new techniques with different spawner types that may give them an economical advantage.

    Thats bad data for balancing tho. Just have a normal hopper system and store the items count them and calculate the value you get. Then the devs can tweak prices without even touching drops, or if that is no good solution drops still can be adjusted.

    That method works as well.

    i think the cheaper spawners need a nerf whether that is a increased price decreased spawner rate but i would not buff and of the higher tier spawners(except for ghast) as i would not risk breaking the eco

    I think the recent spawner price changelogs work with this idea nicely +1

    Those changes move in a wrong direction. It makes the early game even harder and catching up impossible. And progress is still the same just a little slower. Make as many pig grinder as you have alt slots/asc upgrade them to guardians or creeper (they are pretty even) and then your income can support igs if you are lucky.
    You have no reason to go for anything else than this for money right now. The more expensive spawner don't give you a real progession.

    It would be a great idea +1. People with alot of Pig Spawners make more money than people with a decent amount of IGs.
