hey Bork, back when i started, i did some calculations on this topic between my cow spawners and creeper farms.

i'd like to emphasise that the following calculations may have a lot of variation given the design of the spawner being efficient/ inefficient. also the scale of my 'experiment' was limited due to my funding. here are my following results.

so during my experiment:

i had 10 creeper spawners (230k $)

i had 15 cow spawners (150k $)

after half an hour (30mins) i had collected 1321 gunpowder. ( 1321 @5$ each = 6605)

after half an hour (30mins) i had collected 3569 leather and steak. (3569 @ 3$ each = 10707)

therefore it would be safe to say,

the amount of money made/ total amount invested (spawners) = how much i made back (in 30 mins)

^ using this equation

Gunpowder >> 6605/2300000 = 0.00287174

Leather >> 10707/ 1500000 = 0.007138

therefore now that i have a common value of how much i made per half an hour i can divide the larger by the smaller to have a ratio

0.007138/0.00287174 = 2.486.

which tells us that you get almost 2.5 times as much from COW spawners then CREEPER spawners.

id like to re emphasise that these results are tentative to change in anyone trying to reproduce them, i probably should have made an average from three trials, however i didn't and therefore this is as useful as i can be, at this specific moment in time. however i also acknowledge that cow spawners will require substantially more time to sell.

By the way guys! i have a profit shop in my island, i give gunpowder to people for free

just type /is warp TimmyBubbles and you will see what i mean
