    Simple suggestion: every mob has a .001% chance to drop its respective spawn egg upon death. This would make potential for incredibly rare items and boost the economies of Skyblock and Factions.

    Why add this?:
    • It would encourage Skyblock players to improve their islands and make things like mob grinders as well as provide a new commodity.
    • In Factions, it gives players a big advantage if they get the right spawner (JUST GOT A CREEPER EGG, LET'S BLOW SOME SUCKERS UP!) and it also gives players a reason to attack certain factions. (OMG THIS GUY HAS A CREEPER SPAWNER!? LET'S KILL HIM AND RAID HIS BASE!)
    Let me know what you think. Kthxbai. <3

    Yes yes yes. I have suggested this before, but no one listens xD Maybe boost that percentage of the mobs dropping the egg up though, .001% is next to impossible to get.

    That's a 1/1000 chance. Let's say there's 100 people on factions. Each person has to kill 10 mobs on average to get one egg for the server. The only current way to get spawn eggs is spawners, and spawners are quite rare already. This low percentage discourages people from abusing something like a farm or grinder, but also allows people who use these to occasionally receive an egg.

    Can we try and make them rarer than villager spawners? I seriously hate villager spawners (despite using one myself) because they make the game too easy, so i really don't want these to be easy to get >.<

    I always wished that villagers had a very tiny chance of dropping an emerald upon death. Maybe make them drop emeralds instead? (Also this goes without saying, but mobs spawned from spawners don't drop eggs)

    I was killing a ton of the greedy money-pinchers earlier, hoping that i could get some of my many emeralds back that i had spent seeing as his last trade was 11 emeralds for a compass (/cri), but nothing came out ;-; i think 1% should be a good rate, as they aren't worth farming then, but could be a little something extra in return for wasting that durability on your sword on a pesky evolved squidward. (best make sure that you have to be the ender of its life though, or else you'll have people spawning them into bottomless pits and such with hoppers to collect their goodies).

    Maybe they could have a very very small chance of dropping villager eggs and just a very small chance of dropping emeralds.

    (Skyblock)
    I can´t really say wether I like this idea or not.
    But as of now you can only get spawn eggs through drop parties. They are kind of special on skyblock and spawners get usually sold for a high prices.
    If mobs would drop spawn eggs it would have to be really rare.

    I am not sure if it has something to do with it but Skyblock tends to be really laggy. With all it´s worlds such as Nether, skyblock, the pvp arenas and mini games. Would it maybe cause more lag if more stuff would be added? Because then it is a total no. Players already complain about the lag, they would start raging.

    And someone would have to code it...

    The coding wouldn't be an issue. I have code that would work, but I know Rubik would want to do it himself.

    Skyblock lags because of the colossal amount of chunk that are generated whenever someone starts a new island. Lag is also caused because chunks have to be reloaded whenever someone goes back to their island. Lag and SkyBlock essentially come hand in hand, very hard to avoid.

    Couldn't this still be implemented into Factions? As well as a fix for mob spawning, I want mah gold!

    I think it should be 0.007 (or less) because we don't want the people with giant mob farms to gain a LOT!

    No...
    One in 10,000 mobs killed will drop an egg, that's just enough.
