Packed Ice is a solid block form of ice.

Obtaining[edit]

Packed ice can be obtained using any tool with silk touch. When broken without using a silk touch tool it drops nothing.

Natural generation[edit]

Packed ice is found in the rare Ice Plains Spikes biome.

Usage[edit]

Packed ice is slightly slippery, causing entities to slide, including items. This also allows for increased speed in water currents by placing the packed ice under the water current.

When a non-full block is placed on top of packed ice, the block has the same "slipperiness" as the ice below it; although, if packed ice is placed below soul sand, it just increases the slowing effect of the soul sand rather than making it slippery.

Packed Ice is a completely solid block, and allows placement of any objects on top.
