Modular Base Collection - Monster Farm

AKA the 'Sweeper', as the hostile mob farm unit of the MBC.
Actually you may find this one slightly different than the other MBC units in appearance, and it is pretty paradoxically special so I would explain a bit later.

Features:
1. Is an automatic farm (2-5 monsters / min in hard mode with normal world creation and both sides on).
2. Is also an active farm with redstone powered (many common simple farms are passive).
3. Farms monsters. Usually skeletons, zombies and creepers. Rarely endermen.
4. Not all monsters, can NOT farm spiders; can farm witches but not automatically.
5. Like the other MBC units, it is very compact with 48 x 4 = 196 blocks as available spawning area.
6. Not like the other MBC units, this one can not be stacked vertically unless if you modify it.

How to import (in vanilla MC):
1. Read the instruction about structure block on wiki.
2. Place the nbt file under {MC directory}/saves/{your world}/generated/minecraft/structures/.
3. Open your world and type: /give @a minecraft:structure_block 1.
4. Always Include Entities. If you load more than once, turn it off on consequent loads.
5. Load it into your world, structure name = file name.
6. If anything goes wrong, load it twice after 5 seconds.
7. Replace the structure block with sandstone and it is done.

How to use:
1. Flip the lever on both side of the central clock control.
2. When you hear piston sounds, or see the redstone lamp twinkling, go out AT LEAST 20M AWAY (may varies with game mechanism) for it to work.
3. Wait, and everything would be done automatically. Beware not to go too far (120m? I think), or the monsters may despawn.
4. Check periodically for the loots in the barrel.

Caveats:
1. The efficiency is kinda pathetic for a single farm (any with this size is kinda same)... IMO, you may build this like 3-4 ones and put them in the middle of a lake or within a lit area, so those monsters may only spawn inside.
2. like everything with rails, this farm needs 2 minecarts with hoppers to work. In the current version of MC(1.14), tracks may break after loaded with structure block. You may need to fix it by yourself (the track goes with a u-shape, all powered if possible), and I have already put 2 minecarts in the chests around.
3. Probably it will lag a lot on low end PC, like the one I have. It will be way better after you keep some distance as the game engine does not need to render those clocking redstones. You may turn it off by flip all 5 levers by the entrance and in the very middle on the ceiling to disable monster spawn.
4. Witches won't die by fire, so you have to kill them by opening the trapdoor. They won't attack you, If you keep a minor distance.
5. Spiders may stuck inside, but it does not matter so much since you can farm anything else (actually they may die by pistons and their loots will still by yours to collect). If you desperately need to farm spiders, you can modify the farm by opening a 2-blocks-wide side fissure and killing area with a little redstone circuit tweaks around. I guarantee that you can do this since I have tried. The reason I'm not posting that is because it will decrease the spawning area and make the farm even less efficient since all my other MBC units have the same inner size so I have to make an accord.
