Okay, here's a thing about the bedrocky spring blocks - they are from BuildCraft and spawn at the bottom of oil or water fountains. They will occasionally spawn a source block, but especially the oil spawner takes its merry time. They are infinite, but not good for OP creative power generation. Although I thought that the water spawner was faster, but maybe not...

Back on 1.4.7 DW20 saltpeter was terrible to find, and I was just using it to craft Gunpowder for a friend if I remember right.

I don't really have much use for it now, but I do enjoy hoarding things.... will definitely be putting the WoET and wrath igniter (eee those are fun) suggestions to the test when I get the time.


Always wondered what that spawner did. If I plop one out in the world, will it generate like normal?


I did finally find a saltpeter deposit by the way, but I've actually never found a spawner without spawning it in. It may be located under bedrock or something so you can't tamper with it.
