    Plugin category: Mechanics

    Suggested name: Water Shortage (doesn't have to be this)

    What I want:
    A plugin that makes water finite by disabling infinite water sources.

    Ideas for commands:

    Ideas for permissions:

    When I'd like it by:
    Within three or four days.

    I've been searching for this for awhile, but no one's made it yet. I thought this was kind of odd though... I thought a plugin like this would be really popular. Is it even possible to make a plugin like this? It seems like it would be fairly simple to.

    no phone

    I think it can be made, it's just no one's bothered yet.

    If the BlockFormEvent includes formation of new water sources this will be easy, I'll look into it when I get home. I hope you know that this plugin will make all of your lakes look horrible :( . Unless you wanted water not to flow... but that would mess with waterfalls and underground streams...

    Nah, there are already plugins that block water flow, but in my opinion that looks silly ;) I just want to prevent infinite water sources because, in my opinion, it makes getting water way too easy.

    Ok then, I'll get home around 5:00 EST and see what I can do.

    You could make it so that once you pour water from a bucket, it is now longer a source block but a flowing block. This would be the easiest way to do it.

    Another option would be to check the block of the water being poured as to not completely ruin infinite pools. Maybe check if the water is being poured on.. lets say, an iron block, it can remain a source block.. atleast this way it will require people to sacrifice some materials to make an infinite pool
