The Slime is a hostile mob that currently spawns exclusively in the bottom 16 layers of the map. An easy way to tell if you are low enough is to dig until you find bedrock. Bedrock is found in layers 1-4. They also spawn in only a select few chucks. A chunk is a 16x16 block column that extends from the bedrock up to the sky. There are slime finder applications, but they can be difficult to understand. Slimes are the only hostile mob that can spawn in high light levels, this means that if you light up a cavern (at the correct altitude and in a correct chunk) then only slimes will spawn. Silmes spawn 1/10th as often as other hostile mobs. A trick is to light up all caverns and even the surface near your slime farm (the room you want them to spawn in), this prevents other hostile mobs from spawning which allows Slimes to spawn more.

Slimes spawn in three sizes; large, medium, and small. Only small slimes drop slimeballs, however medium and large slimes can split into smaller slimes. Slimes can be tricky to kill. Currently, they can be "overkilled" by attacking them with an axe or a sword. A bow and arrows or simply punching them is the best way to ensure larger slimes split. If you overkill a slime, it will not split and you won't get slimeballs. Slimes cannot swim, therefore it is easy to kill them by drowning them.

Slimeballs are currently only used to make sticky pistons. Jukeboxes are made from a diamond and seven wood planks. Music discs are obtained when a skeleton kills a creeper. Music discs can also be obtained by finding them in dungeon chests, however this is rare.
