[1.7.10] Check if block is fluid source block


Recommended Posts

I thought I could simply check if the block is Blocks.flowing_water or Blocks.flowing_lava, but I must be misunderstanding something because every water block on screen in this screenshot is reported as BlockStaticLiquid rather than BlockDynamicLiquid.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.


Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
