I am playing Minecraft with the Oceancraft mod installed. Among other things, this adds quicksand, which if you step in you begin to sink and slowly suffocate.
Once you have stepped in quicksand - is there any way to avoid your untimely demise? I've tried walking out of it but when I get to the last block I can't jump over it. I've also tried digging up the neighboring blocks and the offending quicksand itself but I still drown.
Is there any way to avoid drowning in quicksand if you haven't managed to avoid it?
