Currently you can only directly obtain black dye through a wither rose farm or a squid farm. However, obtaining black dye through a squid farm is painful as squids spawn very rarely and it takes a lot of time to get even a little ink. I would love to see a change that allows squids to spawn more frequently if that is possible! Not to an extend like in a single player world but just a little bit faster.

I have the same problem. Maybe reducing glow squid spawns, and increasing normal squids. That would be cool

This is being currently looked at.
The information we can give is that Glow Squids and Squids have the exact same spawn rates.
I need more information about the actual farm. We will be testing on the Dev Server, message me on Discord so we can do further testing

I used this design: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7LYv6JdOKE
Its a farm build in a river biome with water collums that are one block apart in which the squids spawn in. When they leave the water collum they've spawned in they fall a certain distance as the water collums are stopped at the bottom with open fence gates or signs and then the squids die due to fall damage. Afterwards, a collection system (hoppers or hopper minecarts [minecarts produce less lag]) picks up the ink and stores it in chests.

I use the same design and can't get it to work either. It would really be great if that could be fixed somehow! e.g. increasing the squid spawn rate.
