So the ScreamerSpotlight doesn't attract zombies?

Adding 100 heat once every 25 minutes seems pretty slow for testing, I suggest 1000 heat every 1 minute to quickly ascertain whether or not it's working.

I suggest dropping HeatMapTime down to 10 or something during the test though, so you don't turn that area into screamer central for 20 straight hours.

Edit: On second thought I suggest backing up the save file before doing this at all, I'm not sure how the heat system works with timers.


Also I'd probably just directly append these to the original spotlight, instead of having a second spotlight and confusing the issue.

<append xpath="/blocks/block[@name='spotlightPlayer']">
 <property name="HeatMapStrength" value="100"/>
 <property name="HeatMapTime" value="1200"/>
 <property name="HeatMapFrequency" value="25"/>
