    Hello again, im trying to make a infinite water bucket but i had one problem that i don't know how to solve.

    Plugin version: 1.8.8

    Problem: I'm using "PlayingInteractEvent". I do event.setCanceled(true) and place water myself looking for the block clicked and the face, that's easy but here is the problem, when i cancel the event, the bucket don't place water but it still doing the animation about Empty Bucket, and i need to click again to see again the water bucket.

    This is where i get the error: Doing event.setCanceled(true) give me back the water bucket BUT after clicking again, if i dont do another click i'll see an empty bucket (although it's not an empty bucket)

    Code is not needed. (i think, if u need it just say it)

    - Use "BucketEmptyEvent" instead of "PlayingInteractEvent", nothing changed.
    - Use event.getItem() and giving him all the propierties of the previous bucket, but it doesn't change it.

    Maybe there's another way to do it... if someone know how i would be greatful if u could explain me.

    After post it i thought that maybe an easy solution could be just using the bucket with Left Click instead of Right Click...

    I don't like it much cause i liked to see the bucket animation but at least it's working.

    If someone know how to do it with the animation just reply!

    I'll mark as solved the post on a few days if no one gives a sugges, cause i already found a solution, not a very good one but at least works :)

    The water placement 'emptying' the bucket visually is handled client side. You can't stop that from happening server side, meaning the animation will happen and you can not stop it.

    A workaround would be to renew the bucket in the player's inventory to show a filled bucket instead of the visually (wrongfully) empty one like so:
    1. Listen for water place event and do what you have to do.
    2. Schedule a task 1 tick in the future -> remove the player's in-hand water bucket and place it back immediately.
