This mod prevents source blocks of water being placed using buckets. This means that:

  • Water must be transported to needed locations by player-built aqueducts and gravity.

  • Source blocks of water from world generation are much more valuable, and cannot be replaced when removed.

  • Any mod that add a water wheel as a source for mechanical power will better balanced with wind power, as you cannot place a source block of water adjacent to a water wheel for free, easy power.

Future plans:

  • Mechanical screw pumps, which moves any adjacent water upward when powered; helpful for when water is needed at a higher elevation than nearby source blocks.

Known issues:

  • Water placed from a bucket does not flow; this might require some coding to fix/update during placement.

if you can a neat thing you could do is make 1x1 holes fillable with water like a barrel, if broken they then leak out and dry up. so allow us to place water but be limited amounts rather than infinite water.

No, water from world generation is unaffected. This mod only affects the spill/place action of water with a full bucket, preventing players from creating new source blocks in the world. It makes the bucket function similarly to the wooden bucket from TFC, which cannot place source blocks of water.

I can edit the description of the mod for more clarity, if needed. I might be mincing words in my explanation.

thanks, so this mod affects the natural generations of single block of water that eventually appears in mountains?

Uploaded a choppy gif of the mod in action.
