I've got a weird problem all of a sudden. As of yesterday, I've noticed a problem: I can't pour items from a bucket correctly. I can pick water and lava up, but when I go to pour them, it simply disappears and nothing happens. I can however click again and get the lava/ water back up in the bucket, even though it shows nothing there.

The problem just randomly started happening, so I'm not sure what's up. Everyone else can pour water/ lava just fine except for me. I didn't make any modifications of any sort from the previous hour it was working to the time the problem started. I do have build rights in the server as well.

Any thoughts to this?

  • If you pour it and relog, does it appear?

    I've had this happen before, it also sometimes makes empty buckets pour also, so be careful if you're handling lava. Emptying and filling a bucket with the same source that was in it when it went crazy fixes it for me. Commented Sep 24, 2011 at 0:54

    It is fixed now! Taken from the forums The Bucket issue should be fixed now. It was a permissions conflict between two plugins.

    @camiloqp why not post that as an answer, then? It's perfectly okay to answer your own question! Commented Sep 24, 2011 at 23:39

The bucket issue was a conflict between two plugins and has been resolved.


If you have a slow computer, that will happen. Try changing the render distance to short or tiny. That should make it load better, and then try it.
