    compared to every other up-gradable spawner, magma cubes upgrade costs just seem so absurd for what its worth, and its by far the most expensive spawner to upgrade, and you get slime balls,magma balls and redstone for a max level.

    looking at other prices these just seem so outlandish:

    [cost to max level spawners, based on SMP prices]

    sheep: 40,000
    spider: 105,000
    mushroom cow: 155,000
    creeper: 180,000
    villagers: 198,250
    silver fish: 200,000
    ghast: 235,000
    magma cube: 420,000

    i get why silver fish and ghast cost so much, they drop emeralds/diamond respectively but almost double the upgrade cost of the ghast to fully upgrade the magma cube for [20% slime, 30% magma, 10% redstone] just seem not worth it, and level 1 magma cubes drop absolutely nothing so you have to upgrade them to make them worth while.
    at least with creepers you still get [10% redstone] at a much cheaper price. slime and magma cubes sells dont even beat out creepers at max rank [slime sell: 3.25 max. magma: $1 max. at max rank, creeper sells beat out both slime and magma, at gunpowder: $2 max and cactus: $3 max] and level 1 creepers can drop gunpowder without upgrades, making magma even more useless. with that price beating out ghasts by almost double, so whats the point of magma cubes?

    and while to outright buy a magma cube is 350,000, it still doesnt deserve to cost 770,000 just to be viable.

    im just suggesting magma cube upgrade prices go down to fall in line with other spawners, like around 200,000 [near creepers/villagers] or buff the drop rates/what magma cubes can drop.

    The bigger problem is that they drop through fences. That means they don't die all the time.

    the eco is only blanced with the spawners that people actually use like skeletons creepers spiders zombies and such.
    for other spawners like slime magma cube ZP they make close to 0 money. just wait till someone decides to balance the eco and then they will be more valuable.

    That would explain why they survive. I totally forgot about that. You rarely have to deal with magma slimes.
    But they would be pretty good if they took fall damage. The upgrades are expensive but it increases spawn rate and the bonus loot has a high drop chance when you compare it to other spawners.
