Sister squids/ink sacs

Recommended Posts

It has come to my attention that Mojang has ruined squids, they've forgotten about to OG ocean dads. They're our friends or enemies -(our fathers)- , and most importantly, our only way to get ink sacs from a mob. Yes, you could argue that through hours of fishing, you could get the elusive ink sac, but this is in no way an efficient way of farming them(including making your own farm because the amount of fish and other things in the water ruin the spawn rates). The first thing I noticed about this server was the use of farms. You have an iron farm/gold farm(non-spawners(I think)), a skeleton spawner(spawners), a witch farm(non-spawners(I think)), a creeper farm(spawners), and so many more farms. My point being, I've talked to a staff member and from what I have heard, the idea for a squid farm was just that, an idea. I don't know if it was shot down, or just forgotten about, but I wanted to bring attention to it once more. 

What is so good about ink? It has many uses! From dying sheep, making banners, even crafting dark prismarine, it's a very useful item all around. Yes, the creeper farm makes sense for rockets so players can farm, but I don't understand why there isn't a squid farm for all the things ink can be used for. Most players don't use ink sacs for much and don't even bother farming squids because they don't find banners, and dye useful, but I for one do use it, a lot. I'd like to think of myself as a decent builder, and I tend to use a lot of dark prismarine for roofs and other things such as putting it underwater to make the water darker. I'm sure there are other players who use dark prismarine too. 

Yes, I am saying I'm quite lazy, but isn't everyone else? I'm pretty sure most of the player base has used the farms in the past, or even present, and will continue to use them in the future. Yes, this is a survival server so you're supposed to get materials yourself, so I ask the question why add the use of spawners for things such as sulfur and bones/bows and arrows? Why not add a farm for squids too? I would like to think that it's just because not everyone sees the beauty in dark prismarine as I, or that they don't see all the uses for black dye. So I guess I wrote all of this just so I could hear some feedback as to why there's not a squid farm for player use? 

 

Thanks for taking the time to read all of this :) 

I hope to read some of the player's opinions on the whole squid farm thing.

PS: I'm not adding in a poll or anything because I'm not really rallying for support for squid farms. I mean, if that would help make a farm for them, sure, but this is mainly just to see everybody's opinions. Also, I would totally build a squid farm *wiNk woNK*

You definitely should build one yourself if you want. Probably would get done quicker that way :P

Sure the spawn rates may be bad... but the lazy part is no excuse! Get going and build that farm already, jeez. 🙄
