    BetterSnow - The plugin for snow that piles up!
    Version: v1.5

    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
    • Switched to Bukkit's standard configurtion
    Earlier Versions (open)

    you could make it so when you walk on the snow it gets trampled down as if somebody was actually walking on it, just an idea :p

    It seems to only want to stack snow on top of trees.

    Your implementation is pretty neat, but it doesn't even scratch the surface of what snow cover can do - try using this on the snow cover blocks ;)

    Block B = (*Get Block Here);
    (CraftWorld) World.getHandle().notify(B.getX(), B.getY(), B.getZ());
    (^^ You will need to target craftbukkit directly instead of bukkit for this part)

    Try melting your snow and starting from scratch
    @sukasa? What does that do?

    0..7 was shorthand for "any value from 0 to 7." Two periods instead of 1

    I've solved the tree problem, but now snow only stacks within the chunk I'm currently in so I have massive towers of snow on my house and no where else. Could you add some code that makes the plugin look for a block that isn't a snow block to stack a snow block on before stacking snow blocks on top of each other? (before putting an 80 on top of an 80, look for some 78 and turn that into an 80 before stacking and 80's on 80's)

    But, I d'like to ask you if you can make a option : Melt the snow under the sun.

    That will be more amazing. :)

    I like this plugin, is it possible for snow to act like sand? When my house blew up one day, the snow was still floating...if it could drop that would be cool.

    Ill try

    Hey, great plugin. But I would also like to request the snow melt/decay option under the sun. Built a huge castle with a trench, and before I could fill it with lava snow had packed so high that the creeps could walk right over. lol After cleaning up the snow, I had major lag, due to all the snow balls lying everywhere haha =D

    Otherwise, love the plugin!

    Thanks, will remember that. I try and stay away from command based interactions as much as possible though. Keeping it real ;) Almost like the dif between Win(blows)dows and Linux ;-P
