    Tags - Snowball, Snow, Ice, Permissions

    I love the idea of snowballs, and wished there were more to do with them. I also like the looks of ice and snow as decorating tools. I searched and found a thread similar to what I was looking for, but it didn't appear the mod had been built out very much. So, I built my second plugin and I hope someone finds it to be useful/enjoyable/cool/all of the above.

    Features (currently always on):

    • Destroying snow tiles with your hands (i.e. air) will result in the snow tile dropping a snow ball. Yes Virginia, you CAN make snowballs with your hands!
    • Blasting most solid block tiles with a snowball will result in snow-covered blocks as long as that block does not already have something above it.
    • Throwing a snowball into a full water block will result in the water freezing into ice.
    • Throwing a snowball into a partial water block will remove the partial water and affect the underlying full block based on that block's type.
    • Snowballs will now do 1 point (1/2 a heart) of damage to living targets.
    • Snowballs maintain their knockback ability that is their default behavior.
    • Snowballs will put out fires on living targets. This includes monsters.
    • Standard physics events will still apply to snow/ice. For example, if you hit the ground next to a torch with a snowball it will become snow-covered, but will then melt.


    The snowball targeting is based on the players current target and is limited to a range of 10 blocks in a straight line. However, this player targeting is linear and may cross through blocks sooner than where you think your reticle is based on the angle of your head and the trajectory to the target. This means that you could possibly hit the square you wanted to place snow with a snowball on from a long distance, but since you actually "saw" the block in front of it first in your line of sight then that would be the targeted block. In other words, you may need to move around and play a little to get EXACTLY what you were expecting in a few cases.

    • Snowballs do no damage to living entities
    • Where the snowball lands it wont make a snow tile or water to ice
    • Snowballs wont put out fire
    Usage: If it is installed, it is on. Optional permissions support.

    If you currently have Permissions installed on your server, you will need to add 'snowballz.*' at a minimum to allow your players rights to this plugin. The detailed permissions used in this plugin are:
    • snowballz.aremadebyhand (make a snowball with your hands)
    • snowballz.changeblocks (cover with snow, make water ice)
    • snowballz.dodamage (do damage)
    • snowballz.putoutfire (put out fire)

    Please 1.1-R4 support and a direct link to jar file please?

    also these settings are redundant:
    15:28:43 [INFO]     Snow douses fire: true
    15:28:43 [INFO]     Snow makes ice: true
    Since they can be disabled/enabled with permissions.
