|Blue Ice||Packed Ice|
Packed ice is slippery, causing most entities to slide, including items. This also allows for increased speed of items in water currents by placing the packed ice under the water current. Mobs do not travel faster in water currents on packed ice.
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 amplifies the slowing effect of the soul sand rather than making it slippery.
Mobs can spawn on packed ice, unlike normal ice. This can allow for compact mob farms that rely on the tendency of pushed mobs to slide off the ice in some way.
Packed ice is a completely solid block, and allows placement of any objects on top.
Unlike normal ice, packed ice will not melt if placed near light sources.
