    So gravel is gravel. It falls when it doesn't have anything under it. Yet...it doesn't make sense how it can stack up to 128 blocks high. Its gravel...after all...

    So, is there a way that I can prevent things from stacking oh so much? For instance, if a player is trying to build a skyscraper, it must be made of iron because wood, or anything else, can only go so high.

    Or like those annoying dirt towers you see every now and then..

    you mean it will pile up and get wider and higher slowly?

    Well it doesn't have to get wider if thats too much to ask or find. I'm just trying to go for realism.

    At least they are easy to destroy. You want to make people construct obsidian towers? Best material for noob tower is either gravel or sand, because you can destroy it from ground.

    Back to topic, i think towers would not be so hard to do this, simply make plugin check all blocks bellow and then calculate "durability" of the tower, based on the values in the config file. But problem is anything beyond 1x1 towers, which would need some complicated calculations to do.

    ok thanks ill start working on it a couple of hours one more question if you try to place more then the tower can support should the entire thing come crashing to the ground?

    Yeah. Basically. If its made of something like iron or a strong metal then it should be able to have a strong weight tolerance. Yet if it gets to heavy then yeah it would crash down.

    Keep in mind im having my players run my client installer every time. I have complete control over what blocks look like. So if you want to turn a block into gravel or something to make it easier for yourself that's fine with me.

    And thanks :D

    Oh ok. Send me your username and ill add you.

    I've seen that too. I was going to use it but all it did was "magically" remove them. It helped get rid of the eye soars yes but id rather it be an effect of realism vs automated.

    Oh wait thats not the one. Thats a new one. Still thats not the effect. Its a good substitute but not the actual thing. Thanks though!

    Set the max height to 3 then if you really cared that much, gravel sand dirt all generally have the same limits unless you reinforce them with some type of liquid solution. Wood can generally be stacked quite high regardless of what you may think, wool technically shouldn't even be stackable, but this is minecraft, we're quite limited by what we have and blocks that can't normally stack in reality are often used for their aesthetic uses.

    As for insta removal as opposed to falling effect, it's really just a modded form of that, once a NxN block material reaches a certain height (height configurable to block id), recurse through the column of the block of same materials and remove the topmost block and drop it in a radius around the tower starting from the lowest point, continue till the tower's the same height as the heighest block surrounding it. Not entirely that hard to do.

    Its an interesting concept you have but you must be doing somthing epic to require that level of realism. I will be really interested to see this if someone does it :)

    The user is working on his own programming language. So im guessing he abandoned the project. Any other takers?
