Stops ice and snow from melting or forming
Version: 0.5.1

This plugin will globally stop all melting of ice and snow (including snow blocks) from light sources (lava, glowstone, torch etc...) as well as stop ice from freezing in water. This will make ice drop blocks of ice too.
To install, drop the NoMelt.jar into your bukkit plugins folder and restart/reload the server. If "Enabled NoMelt!" comes up in the console, you're good to go!

Stops snow/ice from melting
Stops ice from freezing
Stops snow from gathering on the ground
Option to make ice not spawn water when broken
Makes ice drop ice blocks
Source is in the jar


In the configuration file, which can be found in your plugins folder under "NoMelt/config.yml", there are options in a list. Setting one to true means it will be active, false means it will be inactive.

Configuration Options:

  • icedrop: When true, ice will drop when an ice block is broken.
  • noMelting: When true, no ice or snow will melt from light sources such as torches or glowstone.
  • noFreeze: When true, no water will freeze and no snow will collect in your world
  • iceWater: When true, no water will spawn when ice is broken. This defaults to false!
    A screenshot of some testing of the 'no melting' feature. This was after 20 minutes of the
    torches being placed.

Our first user and tester xsolar66 made a video showcase of the plugin, explaining and showing off some of the features. Thanks for the support xsolar!


If anyone has any media (video, pictures, etc.) of NoMelt in action, maybe some fantastical snow-covered streets or an overly lit up snow fortress, contact me on here and I'll add it to the post. Ill give you a free!
