Fixes the strange water physics in large bodies of water which makes underwater work in Minecraft so painful. By making water spread over other water source blocks and making unsupported water source blocks fall it prevents "holes" from appearing in the depths of a pool or from forming "whirlpools" on the surface.

It also happens to allow neat falling water and lava effects and, for the dedicated, lava cannons!

The mod is deliberately minimal in the code it changes so should be compatible with anything which doesn't touch the same two files (falling sand and flowing liquid).

Lava cannons!



Messing with the depths!



Etalyx's review / spotlight! (the problem with water not "inflating" flowing water should be fixed in the version for 1.0.0)



Skip to 1:30 for falling liquids :)

Mod for Minecraft 1.0.0 is now available on mediafire.  Old versions for 1.8.1 and 1.9pre5 are also available (and should behave almost identically).

FIRST And Mind- WHAT? Nice mod dude, the water is kinda trippy falling, but this mod is useful!

this mod is not the same... finite fluid equally distributes when you fill an area and flows realistically, this mod just makes water fill in a little better, and makes it fall when stuck to the side of a flat wall or something.

Note. I love this mod, works great with the zeppelin mod, before when i made a boat that had parts in the water, when you drove it it looked fine, but when you stopped the craft and let it rejoin it would displace the water and make lil whirlpools making my water ugly. this fixed it, now i can start n stop my boat and it never leaves a dent in the water :D THANK YOU!  :Diamond: :Diamond: :Diamond: :Diamond: :Diamond:

1) The only problem I see with Notch's water physics is that it's undocumented. Notch did't tell how it should work. But you didn't tell rules of your physics either. Please fix this.

2) Imagine digging tunnel under sea bed. Sand falls down into tunnel. water falls down, forming a source block on the ground of your tunnel. You close the hole, but water isn't gone. Is this intended?

You should replace "fixes" with "changes". You can't fix something that works as intended or at least wasn't proofed not to work as intended.

4) I'm not sure if water falling like sand is less strange than holes in the ocean. :)

5) Falling water is EntityFallingSand, right?

This looks like the mod when Finite Liquid was just starting out. Great mod, but don't bother extending it unless it's to fix that annoying lava bug which makes lava stay for ages when there is no source block.

This is definitely a great mod for proper water physics in Minecraft

If you think that's strange, you probably play too much Minecraft.

Great work. Really useful mod, I currently hate the water physics.

This should definitely be in the vanilla game!

Nice mod - will download.  This will fix up all that nasty water created by my Buildcraft pumps :)

Can you please make it work for SMP as well?  I absolutely hate the fact that water, especially large bodies of water, is ridiculously hard to fix and people mess it up ALL the time...

This honestly should be the Official physics of Water/liquids in general.

It does all of the amazing things listed below which has been the goal of Notch :

Prevents grievers from easily grieving.

Allows a believable simulation of liquid, without spending any extra power of the pc to simulate.

Follows the "infinite" behavior of liquids to consistently pour without tedious work. Which is Something notch will NEVER give up.

This mod is truly amazing, I love the capability of it all. It has no flaws, but does make "tnt cannon" creation a bit more complex to make, which actually isn't much of a problem as long as you observe how water behaves.

I vote this mod to be official.
You can go ahead and move at the speed of light, But i will move at the speed of darkness.
