Here is a mod that makes bookshelves drop bookshelves when destroyed:
Backup your minecraft.jar file. Open it using a zip utility like 7-zip, Winrar, or Winzip. Remove all files except MANIFEST.MF in the META-INF file. Replace ds.class with the downloaded file.
An answer to my prayers! Very simple, but very proper little mod! You are a very sensible Minecraftian person indeed! When I do my annual springclean my entire book collection is now saved. For being so good to us! :smile.gif:
Yes there are, but those are based on player movement. This is a block mod. The server has to accept how a player moves regardless of the way he moves. It's one of the limitations of Notch's current code. (Which is why we had WoM in classic.)
