Is water movable on an SMP alpha server? Last night I tried to make a greenhouse with water for the crops and every time I dropped the water in the trench it did not spread and disappeared within 3-4 seconds. Is this a known issue or is there a trick to get this working in alpha SMP?


As I mentioned in the other question, this doesn't work correctly at the moment (hopefully he'll fix it in the halloween update).

However, for now there are a few things you can do:

  • If you are an admin, you can give yourself water (id# 8) or lava (id# 10) blocks:
    /give username 08 64
    /give username 10 64
  • If you own the server, there are mods you can install which fix buckets. I can't get the links for you right now, but I believe the name of the mod is llama-mod.

Water and buckets now work correctly in SMP servers. This was a bug with an older version of Minecraft.
