Slimes are somewhat of a rare mob in Minecraft. There are two places where they can spawn: one is the Swamp biome and the other is any Slime Chunk. The problem is, people need a lot of slimeballs. A lot of slimeballs to craft sticky pistons, leads, slimeblocks, etc. .
Making a slime farm based on slime chunks is rather easy, but the hard part is finding a slime chunk. The only way to find a slime chunk in Minecraft without external software is to hope to find a slime while underground, and then approximating the size of the chunk to make a farm.
This can be very tedious and leads to people using third party software to find their slime chunks and mine them out. It would be great if we could have some sort of slime chunk detector in Minecraft, that recognizes whether the chunk you're standing on can spawn Slimes. The crafting recipe could require a slimeball, so you would need to find a slime before you crafted the item.
