This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of Minecraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.


Since this was my first mod I wanted to start out with something "basic" and build upon it. I noticed that there was a plugin called IceCrafter that allowed you to make Ice via the crafting screen. I realized that it was last updated in December, so I got to work. This plugin is however not a copy or a fork. I completly wrote this from scratch and plan to add more features as I progress.


Here is how this works. Simply paste the .jar file inside your plugins folder, the run minecraft. It really is that simple. Then follow the following crafting recipe to get your ice block.





Allows the player/group to craft the ice block.
Allows the player/group to harvest an ice block.
The player must have this if you use an enchantment switch.

Configuration File (default)

    enable_permissions: true
    harvest_tool: WOOD_PICKAXE
    ignore_harvest_tool: true
    ignore_silk_touch: true
    quantity: 4
    1[x][ ][ ]: SNOW_BALL
    2[x][ ][ ]: SNOW_BALL
    3[x][ ][ ]: SNOW_BALL
    1[ ][x][ ]: SNOW_BALL
    2[ ][x][ ]: WATER_BUCKET
    3[ ][x][ ]: SNOW_BALL
    1[ ][ ][x]: SNOW_BALL
    2[ ][ ][x]: SNOW_BALL
    3[ ][ ][x]: SNOW_BALL

    no-permission: You are not allowed to freeze dihydrogen monoxide!
    world_Ice_Block: Suddenly the heat gained was higher than 3.14x10^6, therefore the ice is gone.
