Better Snow

Better snow


This plugin basically allows snow to "go through" leaves and set on leaves that are under and on ground under trees.


  • When snowing, the snow placed on leaves will be placed under as well
  • Automatically places snow under already-placed snow on leaves


  1. Download jar and place it in your plugins folder. (

    @devilquak: Go

    well devil its possible if you spawn a falling snow block entity at the tall grass countiniously .. but it will lag a lot if you have a lot of them nearby

    also its possible to make snow working if you check player destroys grass .. and you can spawn a snow instead of falling block entity

    @Dogtag93: Go

    Tall grass and snow/snow tiles are both blocks, not possible to place two blocks in the same space.

    Check out my plugins,

    plus EatWheat, and Film Maker!

    Is it possible to get tall grass and snow to share the same block? Because it looks bad with spots of tall grass and snow together. Also can we get snow on stairs and slab blocks as well?

    Does this need an update to work with craftbukkit-1.4.7-R1.0 ?

    Is there any way this could go through long grass?

    @Seoxiwleto: Go

    Ah yes, CraftBook... alot of weird things that one has =)

    Just for info, to disable that, go in CraftBookMechanisms/config.yml:

    snow-piling-enable: true

    Set that to false ofc :}

    Gotcha, thank you for the assist x.x We're not sure where to turn.

    Is it possible that even removing the plugin that does this -would NOT- stop this from happening? Just wanna make sure we can tell when it's fixed.

    Thanks again!


    AH! It was craftbook, and I never would have guessed as much. Thanks a million for your help!

    @Seoxiwleto: Go

    Piling up snow ? This plugin doesn't do that. :}

    I don't have any idea what plugin might do that tough, you should look at your plugin list, see which ones are related to world editing and re-read their descriptions, one of them might have that feature.
