    This plugin piles up snow layers into blocks, to run, place the jar in your plugins folder, and run your server to generate a config file, configure and use away!

    Note: I will share source code, when messaged, but decompiling this is going to get you into some deep, deep shit.

    • My plugin makes snow layers into blocks
    • The minimum time is configurable
    • You can choose the max height for a pile of snow
    • It has a configurable property so you can add a random amount of time on to the minimum
    • Hretsam - General help
    • Bleachisback - Helped with config
    • jimbo8 - Requested Plugin
    To do:
    • Configurable height limit - Added in V1.1
    • Redo configuration method - Added in V1.4
    • New snow system (MAJOR UPDATE)
      • Custom heights for snow (W/O CLIENT MOD!!!) - Added in V1.5
      • Snow that gets trampled down
      • Snow that regenerates
    • Your suggestion here!

    Source Code - Please PM me and ask rather then going and decompiling my work, I haven't released my work as it isn't neat, if you want it, I will,

    Version 1.5
    • Updated to Minecraft 1.0
    Version 1.4

    Earlier Versions (open)

    All you have to change is the 60, this is the minimum time to form a snow block
  13. Does this mean the first snowlayer will eventually turn into a snow block, then it snows, and another snow layer forms on top of that, and then another snowblock will form? How high will this go? :)

    As far as avalanches go, you're probably better off waiting for @mindless728 to finish RealFluids. He's doing a recode now which will allow any block id to behave like a fluid.

    i could add this as a fluid to create, call it RealAvalanche (maybe?)

    OP don't worry i won't even be looking at your code, though a specific release like this will more than likely have better performance
