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? – Nick T Sep 24 '11 at 0:14

    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. – John the Green Sep 24 '11 at 0:54

    What version of the game? – badp Sep 24 '11 at 10:09

    It is fixed now! Taken from the forums The Bucket issue should be fixed now. It was a permissions conflict between two plugins. – camiloqp Sep 24 '11 at 22:59

    @camiloqp why not post that as an answer, then? It's perfectly okay to answer your own question! – Raven Dreamer Sep 24 '11 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.
