Is there a way to make something like the unlimited water pool  where you make  something like this  
[]  :Green:
  :--+:  []
(Looking from above and the water is the place where you place the water from your bucket.)
Even if you scoop up the water from that pool it will fill itself back up immediately.
Is there a way to do something like that with lava?

Nope lava can't be infinite'd, and that makes it much more rare.

Nope, it's just not possible. The Nether has a ton of lava though, so if you setup a portal near a lava lake...

It's very possible.

make a shape like this out of obsidean

;)  :stone:  :stone:  :stone:
:stone:  []  []  :stone:
:Green:   :VV:  :VV:   :soil:
:soil:  :soil:  :soil:  :soil:

Place fire where it shows you.

You will see a purple glow, walk into it and wait to be brought to your unlimited lava pool.

Hope that helps!

First, A nether portal is made like this:
:obsidian:  :obsidian:  :obsidian:  :obsidian:
:obsidian:  []  []  :obsidian:
:obsidian:  []  []  :obsidian:
:obsidian:  :VV:  :VV:  :obsidian:
:obsidian:  :obsidian:  :obsidian:  :obsidian:
Second, you don't always spawn near a lava lake.
Third, it's called obsidian, not obsidean.

Yes, infinite lava generators can be made, but only with certain mods installed.  Most multiplayer servers have llamacraft bucket fix and hey0 running, and with the correct options selected, that combination can allow infinite lava springs.

The usual water spring method does not work, though.  Usually, the method I've used is to make the following design (view is from the top down):

:stone:  :stone:  :stone:  :stone:  :stone:
:stone:  :stone:  []  :stone:  :stone:
:stone:  []  :soil:  []  :stone:
:stone:  :stone:  []  :stone:  :stone:
:stone:  :stone:  :stone:  :stone:  :stone:

Then, I place lava on top of the soil, and then remove the soil.

Now, you can pick up the lava again in the bucket, and it will regenerate an infinite number of times.

There are lots of other designs that can work too.  Just search for infinite lava spring, and you can find them.

Is there any way to have it happen in reverse? I spent a hour trying to make a underground sugar farm when i ran into lava, that had a diamond within, made a pool of water, turned 30 buckets into obsidian, burned 6 in a furnace, then finnally gave up on clearing the farm out.

Ended up with one diamond, a giant path of obsidian i don't want, and a half finished farm.

Just chuck down asome water next to the lava, then mine out all the obsidian it makes. Will take a little while, but faster then picking up all the lava in buckets. Plus you get loads of obsidian = win!

Yes, what's with all the My Little Pony on here? Is it really popular now? I'm so out of touch with the youth of today!
