Is it possible that this slime block could be a block version of slime balls like how a redstone block is a block version of redstone? 16:56, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Questionable Glitch[edit]

In Phoenix SC's video, he showed off that if you are on slime blocks, a jump boost of any level will work. Whereas if you have a jump boost level greater than 127 and you try to jump on any other block, it just won't work. The reason I post this here is because I am debating whether or not to put something like this on the trivia section of the Slime block page. 14:31, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

List of properties[edit]

Alright, since I don't feel confident in editing the actual page, I'm going to post some things that I found about the block, and leave them for someone who is better a writing to add to the page.

Properties Light: no flammable: no physics:no blast resistance: unknown hardness: unknown

Special properties If a player falls on this block, the block bounces them half of their fall height, and also negates fall damage/ –Preceding unsigned comment was added by XxKingFlameTailxX (talkcontribs) at 16:05, 9 January 2014 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

The development version history says that it slows player and mob movement more than soul sand. I can't confirm, but if it's true it should be put here somewhere, maybe? 21:08, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Description under Transparency is incorrect; Mobs spawning is quite possible, as is easily demonstrated by generating a super flat world covered in slime blocks. --APlotdevice (talk) 10:12, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Quick property test[edit]

I've been wondering if the bounce height is based on fall height, like the article suggests, or is it based on velocity? A good way to test is a TNT cannon to get you to blast straight down for a falling assist, and give you a huge speed boost as you get blasted downward onto some slime blocks Funky3000 (talk) 17:29, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Another thing to test is whether Carpet "prevents" bouncing (intro. section) or: "does not stop mobs from bouncing and taking fall damage," (Behavior section). Which latter comment is of course vague: If something Bounces, we are led to believe also-elsewhere in the article, Then there is No fall damage, it otherwise seemed.

The seecret change?[edit]

CodeCrafted made a video about a very interesting property of slime blocks he discovered. Apparently, slime blocks is sticky, it can pull a block behind it if pulled with sticky piston. 10:21, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

The video itself is a fake - look at the end of the video and at all the comments. GoandgooTalk

I don't know about that -- consider this video, with another self--propelled contraption. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 15:45, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
The original video was faked/modded, but apparently Mojang has now added that functionality to vanilla. -- Orthotopetalk 16:11, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
Marc Watson just tweeted about a self-propelled slime block "bomber" he seems to admire.--Techbrew (talk) 19:12, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Blocks that don't stick[edit]

Can we get a list of blocks that won't be pushed by pistons when attached to slime blocks? So far I know furnaces, melons and obsidian won't stick 20:36, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

I second this request. Can we please get a list on the main page? It's kind of an important detail. --Katerine459 (talk) 01:53, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
As stated on the page, slime blocks will move any block that can be pulled by a sticky piston. There's a list of unmoveable blocks at Piston#Pushing blocks. -- Orthotopetalk 02:18, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
I clarified the language on the page and added a link to the table on the Piston page. --HopsSplurt (talk) 17:02, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Misinforming picture[edit]

The image that clams to give a tutorial on how to make a moving redstone contraption is misleading. I have made an exact copy, and it did not work. Therefor, it should be removed or replaced with a more accurate image. Quote5 (talk) 17:55, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Did you use sticky pistons instead of regular pistons? Anomie x (talk) 22:24, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Otherwise did you build it on mobile blocks? I personally like the first design better, as it is simpler, and the diagram shows the design easier (in the picture, it does not easily display all the slime blocks, nor can you tell that center piston is sticky). KnightMiner (t·c) 04:06, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Photo and design are not mine. I don't even have Minecraft. --Naista2002Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Iron Pickaxe.png 15:41, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

I tested the design myself and it does work. You can find the instructions on the tutorials page for flying. There is one sticky piston that faces backwards. That is why you are having problems making it work.
In truth there should be a picture added instead of a very simple flying machine to help beginners in a better way.

Is this field really needed? The availability section states: "Survival, but not on peaceful". Is this really needed? It's not on other pages, so i assume it should not be there. Plus, slime blocks CAN be obtained on peaceful if already existing slime balls are used. Redrooey Totem of Undying.png Black & White Rabbit.png 18:53, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

I think it should stay. If you previously obtained slimeballs, you were playing not in peaceful The question is whether they exist in creative. The BlobsPaper.png 19:34, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

What does stick do slime blocks?[edit]

I'm kinda missing a list / table of blocks that do or do not stick to slime.

In particular, I noticed that do leaf blocks not stick, which is apparently true for melons as well (seen in a video for a person elevator; I assume pumpkins and cacti behave the same).

The interesting thing about leaf blocks is, that they are see-through (kinda), but don't let players walk through. Thus, you can use them to secure an otherwise open elevator shaft without breaking the contraption while allowing to look outside. With glas blocks etc. it would not work, because they stick to slime blocks. Melons etc. are not see-through and sugar canes have no collision with the player (and also break way too easily).

Is there already a list of blocks that do / don't stick, or where/how could this be added? Thanks! --Codemanx (talk) 21:36, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

It would make sense that slime blocks cannot move transparent blocks. The only opaque block that cannot be moved by slime blocks is glazed terracotta. The BlobsPaper.png 00:36, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Piston#Limitations has a list of how different blocks interact with pistons. Whether something "sticks" to slime blocks has more to do with how they interact with pistons (can they be pushed or pulled; slime blocks just extend that mechanic away from the piston), so that's where it's listed. —munin · Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Stone Pickaxe.png · 16:25, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
The page says anything that can be pulled by a sticky piston. The BlobsPaper.png 00:08, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

Bedrock/LCE exclusive[edit]

On both of the aforementioned versions, Items do bounce on slime blocks, however I am still new to editing on this wiki, and am unable to do it. Fezemerald (talk) 00:52, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
