MineCraft - Water Fixes Patch

Fixes the two most annoying water bugs in MineCraft!

  • “Falling water” no longer breaks torches, crops, or redstone
  • “Infinite water spring duplication” also works for water that is deeper than one block

This is a Patch, not a Mod

It will not affect your world save
No new items or blocks will be added to your maps. This means the mod can be uninstalled, reinstalled, or MineCraft upgraded (causing the patch to automatically uninstall) without any issues.

It does not require any mod APIs
This patch modifies base classes in the MineCraft source code. No mod APIs are required to use it, nor can it be modified to use a mod API rather than modifying base classes (hooks just won’t cut it!).


Water Fixes Patch v1.2.5-01 (for MineCraft 1.2.5 Client)

This download is for the client version of the mod. Contact me (using either the comment form below or on GitHub) if you need the server version.
