"If you edit either type of fluid block into your inventory, they will spread when placed, since placing a block causes updates." This doesn't seem to be true; I'm in Beta 1.6.6 and when I place the Still Water block type (9) it remains stationary until a nearby block is updated. Glory 10:45, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

I think that if you edit the moving one into your inventory it will spread, while the still one waits for a block update. Arilotter 12:25, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Can this be changed to liquids?[edit source]

Water and lava are fluids and liquids. Air is also a fluid, but it is not a liquid. Can this article be changed to "Liquids"? Chris3145 03:10, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

I support this idea, but I feel if I change it then it will be reverted. NightstormKitty 19:16, 26 June 2012 (UTC)


True enough. Air , water , lava , oil and a few others are all similar. They do not act like other blocks in Minecraft. Maybe you are correct. I have lots of experience with fluids.

Question[edit source]

What ever happened to being able to place source blocks on top of source blocks?

Creating lava source blocks[edit source]

As of Beta 1.9 Pre-release 5, a lava block can be converted into a source block if the following conditions hold: it is bordered by 4 lava sources in a cross-like arrangement the 4 sources are on the same horizontal level as it there is a solid, opaque block underneath it

I tried this in 1.0, but, as far as I can tell, it didn't work in either X or + shape. I tried it with dirt underneath, then stone. The outer lava blocks flowed inward, implying that a source block had not been created. When I tried the same thing in multiplayer, I could not pick up the middle block of lava with a bucket.

Was this feature removed? If not, could someone please confirm or clarify this?

The Lava page says this no longer happens in 1.0, so I'm assuming it was a short-lived bug/feature. -- Orthotope 08:05, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Shame, though. I guess I'll install that infinite lava plugin.

Flowing lava staying forever[edit source]

I think it should be mentioned somewhere here that lava sometimes stays forever even after the source has been removed. --79.181.172.164 16:59, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

I added it to the Trivia section. I also added a Trivia section. -- Pigster (T) 02:57, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Flowing lava does not stay forever anymore, as of 1.7. It disintegrates as soon as the source block is gone, akin to water. HIYIYIYI! IT'S CATNOM! (talk) 20:30, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

No it doesnt[edit source]

When the source block has been removed or turned into obsidian, it's gone for good. I have done this in Pocket Edition Alpha 0.4.0. I made an aquaduct delivering water to a lava source block in a lava fall. When i had mined the obsidian, the lava fall dried up. 173.72.122.25 15:28, 2 November 2012 (UTC)TheMineCraftWizardXII

Move to Liquid[edit source]

I think the page should be moved to “Liquid" so it complies with the style guide. -JEC6789 [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 15:49, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

I think there should be an exemption in the style guide for certain pages where the subject matter is inherently plural. For example, the Commands and Data values articles each deal with many individual items, so to me it would feel strange to have them titled Command and Data value. -- Orthotopetalk 03:05, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Outdated picture[edit source]

The picture at the top of the page (the one comparing stone and water blocks) looks like it is from an extremely old version of Minecraft, as it uses the old stone texture and lighting. Furthermore, it has the crosshairs in the center, which are completely unneeded. I suggest a new picture. 108.55.8.246 15:57, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

NOT going to work here any more ![edit source]

I did hours of research on this subject and then hours more to update this page ... and just trash it even when I am making an effort to take the excuses given as constructive feedback .. (talk) 15:35, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Please use your userspace instead of the mainspace if you are making a large number of small edits, as well as for content that is a "work in progress". Review it after completing it on your userspace before attempting to modify the article. Skylinerw (talk) 16:35, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
it would have been nice if someone had mentioned whatever user space is before now. I am done with trying to contribute to this wiki. You guys don't want newcomers to contribute .. this is how you keep them out. bye Bytebasher (talk) 22:29, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
The only newcomers that are lost by having rules are the ones who really did not want to contribute anyways. I had posted on your talk page earlier about the information that did not belong, and I did my best to incorporate what you added into the page. You then reverted my edit and added made more edits that directly when against what I mentioned to you, so I don't think the problem is us trying to push new users away, but rather you wanted to stop input from older users.
If you want a place where you can write things about Minecraft without others getting editing it, post a thread on the Minecraft Forums. KnightMiner t/c 01:15, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
