Want to add a little more realism to your server? By popular request I've pulled this feature from PwnPlantGrowth and made it into a standalone plugin, say hello to PwnBuckets! Set water when poured from buckets and dispensers to behave more like real water! No more water source and infinite pools.. force your players to irrigate using natural sources.

Current Features

  • Water from buckets can be configured to act like fluid water.
  • Water from buckets in dispensers can be configured to act like fluid water.
  • Water melted from is buckets can be configured to act like fluid water.
  • Lava from buckets can be configured to act like fluid lava.
  • Select specific biomes where water source can be used.

Expected Features

  • Player permissions which will allow player to use bucket as water source.
  • -Ice block behavior- done.
  • -Potentially do something with lava buckets- done.
  • Suggestions?


  1. Stop your server.
  2. Place the PwnBuckets.jar in your /plugins directory.
  3. Start your server, note that the /plugins/PwnBuckets/config.yml file has been created.
  4. Stop your server.
  5. Edit the /plugins/PwnBuckets/config.yml to your liking. (Please note by default - all settings in our config are DISABLED)
  6. Start your server.

Note: It is important to always test ANY plugin you install prior to deploying it for production, you as a server admin, should always consider this to be Rule #1 of running a server.


  • Edit the configuration file in /plugins/PwnBuckets/config.yml
  • Currently the config is fairly simple and should be self explanatory, if you need more help with configuration, here is the Configuration Page


  • There are currently no commands available, but there may be in future versions.

Plugin Metrics

This plugin utilizes bStats plugin metrics system, which means that some information is collected and sent to

If you don't want that your server sends data to bStats you can disable it by setting enabled to false in the bStats config file. The config can be found in the /plugins/bStats/config.yml file. bStats has nearly no effect on your server's performance and the sent data is completely anonymous so please consider twice if you really want to disable it.
