    Plugin category: Mech (Or fix, if you think the new mushroom code needs fixing ;p)

    Suggested name: MushroomAntinerf

    A bit about me: I'm a server owner and longtime player of minecraft. In 1.6, I got the news that mushrooms would spread (slowly, but they would). I made gigantic mushroom farms, ate tonnes of mushroom soup, and over all enjoyed myself. In 1.8 I got the sad news that mushroom growth was nerfed.

    What I want: I'd like to have the old 1.6 mushroom growth replicated, before the 1.8 nerf. The mechanics are availiable on the minecraft wiki (http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Tutorials/Mushroom_Farming), but I will post them here for reference (saves on tabs ;P):

    Every tick, every mushroom is given a 1/100 chance to do the following:
        Choose a random block in the 3x3x3 cube centered on the mushroom (the mushroom itself, not the block it's on). This favors the mushroom's own level, the middle 3x3 square: upper and lower levels are given a 1/4 chance each whereas the mushroom's level is given 1/2. If a mushroom could be planted in the chosen block (empty, light <=12, lower block is opaque), do:
            Choose another random block in the 3x3 square centered on the previously chosen block. If this block could support a mushroom as well, create one there.
    Note that the first randomly chosen block can be the mushroom itself, the block it's sitting on, or the block above. The "can be planted" check will fail in all three cases, further reducing the overall spread chance.
    The following can be deduced from the algorithm:
        Mushrooms may spread to two blocks away, though only if a block on the way is free.
        Mushrooms may spread diagonally in all three axis. 
    Ideas for commands: No commands needed for this plugin. It would simply alter the growth of mushrooms.

    Ideas for permissions: No permissions needed, see above.

    When I'd like it by: As soon as possible. I am getting ready to release my server as public, and wish to have this in before that date. I also have another server admin who would be interested in this plugin.

    Devs who might be interested in this: Awaiting comments :)

    Not what I was asking about.... They grow to a maximum of 5 in a 5 radius (9x9 area) around the mushroom now, and grow extremely slow. This is what I wanted a plugin to fix.

    Oh thx for explanation... This could actually be good though I suggest this plugin also disable giant mushrooms since they are way too OP

    Yep I am hoping for someone to create this plugin also, I use to love to make mushroom farms, can't do it anymore, since they don't populate the area like they use to.
