      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      There has been a breach of our database. Please make sure you change your password (use a password manager, like Lastpass).
      If you used this password anywhere else, change that too! The passwords themselves are stored hashed, but may old accounts still had old, insecure (by today's standards) hashes from back when they where created. This means they can be "cracked" more easily. Other leaked information includes: email, IP, account name.
      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord ( is the best option for up to date news and questions. I'm sorry for this, but the damage has been done. All I can do is try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Red Bucket Capacity

4 posts in this topic



Currently it is possible to create an infinite amount of water with only a barrel and a red steel bucket. The way it works is as follows:

  • Get a red steel bucket full of water.
  • Put the water-source down.
  • Right-click the water-source with a barrel to fill it with water.
  • Place the barrel.
  • Fill the bucket (removes 1000mB (10%) of the water inside the barrel).
  • Repeat from point 2.

While you could also simply create an infinite water source, I believe that this is easier to fix, as you don't have to rewrite Minecraft's water physics.

The problem is that the amount of water doesn't match up.

A red steel bucket holds a water source. If you pick up a water source with a barrel, it fills it completly, meaning that a water source holds 10000mB of water. However, when interacting with a barrel using a bucket, the absolute value that gets added/subtracted is 1000mB, however, you can simply place a water source with this bucket, which fills another barrel and therefor adds another 10000mB to the amount of water you have.


My suggestion is to set the amount of water a red steel bucket adds/subtracts to 10000mB.

The red steel bucket needs to stay at 1,000 mB because it can be used to fill other containers from other mods.


The fact that you can fill an entire barrel with 10,000 mB or an entire large vessel with 5,000 mB from the same block of water is just for enjoyable gameplay. It was tedious to sit there and use a bucket clicking back and forth to fill it, so we made it easier.


There's no feasible way to make it consistent between all three containers, and also keep expected behavior with other mods.

Okay, haven't thought about other mods.

It's not like that's tragic anyways, the ininite well is kind of famous after all - just thought it'd be an easy change ^^
