    I know there are multiple ways of doing this in the Monster pack, but the OpenBlocks fans aren't good enough and I don't want to get into RotaryCraft just yet. So what should I use?

    How about the conveyor belts from minefactory reloaded? Those are a really nice method for it, That is usually what I use when I need to transport mobs around :)

    Another possible extremely vanilla way of doing it is minecarts on tracks.

    Mobs can't spawn on either of those things.

    corporeal attractors from thaumic tinkerer, it can be set to pull or push mobs up to 7(?) blocks away

    You never specified if they needed to be able to spawn on that block or anything. Sorry, if I knew that I wouldn't have wasted your time :(

    What means of spawning are you using that requires a floor? Normal dark room or what?

    As for moving mobs I have to agree with the use of the TT magnet thingies for mobs.

    Blood Magic has a ritual that can push mobs away as well IIRC

    XU(?) conveyor belts can have mobs spawn on them. It's the one that looks like tracks.

    Nope, that's Extra Utilities. Openblocks doesn't have conveyors, that goes to MFR.

    A very large room with cursed earth flooring.

    Why not just use an mfr grinder?

    Yeah my thought exactly. The Grinder have pretty much the same range as any pushing/pulling means you can find, so might as well just kill them on the spot. If the room is more than 10 blocks across, you could just make a pillar in the middle with the grinder(s) embedded.

    I would have to use over 300 MFR Grinders.

    Just alternate rows of MFR conveyor and spawning location.

    You know theres range upgrades right?

    Unless you have a 2400x2400 block room, I doubt you'd need 10% of that many grinders.
