Warden Warden

The warden warden is a combination warden farm, warden suppressor (tbd), and overworld/nether mob switch.

It can be reached through the nether from the otherside portal, or through the overworld from the otherside ancient city close to the geode base.

Locations

There are three distinct locations that make up the warden warden:

Warden Spawning Pad

The warden spawning pad is located in the otherside ancient city. It is constructed around a shrieker and is a mix of these two ilmango designs:

Controls available

From here, the spawning pad can be assigned a player, and the clock can be switched on or off. (tbd: Also, the spawning pad can be switched between farm mode and warden suppression mode)

Overworld Piping/Mob Switch/Control

From the spawning pad, the wardens are transported into a system of pipes. There is a control board that can be used to move wardens between the following locations:

Inbound

Wardens from the spawning pad (and also the nether portal) are collected and then sent to either the overworld mob switch or the killing chamber.

Killing chamber

This is where wardens go to become sculk catalysts.

Mob switch

This is where wardens are collected. The mob switch is in lazy chunks when the warden warden is permaloaded. From here, wardens can be sent to the killing chamber or the nether portal. They can also be held in place to make the mob switch work.

Nether portal

The nether portal is where wardens are sent in order to switch off mob spawning in the Nether. When the nether mob switch is turned off, its wardens also arrive in the Overworld from here and are sent to inbound.

Controls available

Inbound Wardens to: Mob Switch/Killing Chamber

Whether wardens that are coming from the pad/nether should be sent to the overworld mob switch or the killing chamber

Overworld Mob Switch Valve: Open/Closed

If closed, the mob switch will collect wardens; if open, they will be sent onwards. Close this valve to use the overworld mob switch.

Outbound Wardens To: Killing Chamber/Nether

Where wardens go from the mob switch if the valve is open.

Overworld Warden Attractor On/Off

A noisemaker that occupies Wardens so that they don't despawn. Should usually be on during normal operation.

Permaloader

Permaloader for the warden warden. If deactivated, both mob switches will only work if actually loaded by a player. Can be used to disable both mob switches temporarily.

Nether Piping/Mob Switch/Control

The nether side is much simpler than the overworld side. There is simply a loop from the nether portal to the mob switch and back again.

Controls available

Nether Mob Switch Valve: Open/Closed

If closed, the mob switch will collect wardens; if open, they will be sent back to the overworld. Close this valve to use the Nether mob switch.

Nether Warden Attractor On/Off

A noisemaker that occupies Wardens so that they don't despawn. Should usually be on during normal operation.

Usage

Hazards

Nether warden proximity

In the nether loop, if wardens are present and not in the switch, sneaking is advised.

Death by Infinite Wardens

Be careful not to AFK for too long while restocking a mob switch. There are no safeguards yet to prevent wardens from accumulating and crashing the server. If the warden warden is permaloaded, it will produce wardens as long as the player who supplied the arrows is in the overworld, so leaving the area is not enough; you must send the wardens to the killing chamber if the pad is on and you plan to AFK indefinitely.

Speed

The pad attempts to spawn a warden every 10 seconds, with a very high (but not perfect) rate of success. For the mob switch to work, 70 loaded mobs per player are needed. Assuming perfect spawning, a single player mob cap is full in 700 seconds. So, 12-13 minutes per anticipated player online is a good estimate.

Use cases

Since the interface for the warden warden is very low-level, here are a few use cases:

Purge the system
Re-stock the Nether mob switch
Re-stock the Overworld mob switch
Transfer wardens from the nether mob switch to the overworld mob switch
Transfer wardens from the overworld mob switch to the nether mob switch
