BlingGravity Bukkit Plugin for Minecraft

Messing with physics in a game is probably one of the best ways to find entertainment after you’ve already grown tired of the game’s base functionality.  BlingGravity, a Bukkit plugin by SethBling, makes use of colored wool to change the way gravity works in controllable zones for Minecraft.

The four colors of wool that affect gravity are green, red, cyan, and magenta.  Their effects are as follows:

 

  • Green: decreased gravity, as depicted in the screenshot of the slime above.

  • Red: increased gravity, making it almost impossible to jump.

  • Cyan: anti gravity, resulting in every mobile object slowly floating upwards.

  • Magenta: extreme anti gravity, which sends all mobs, players and objects flying upwards with great force.

 

If you are observant, you may have caught on to this already: each gravity effect works on players, mobs, and items alike, including both dropped and thrown items (arrows, eggs, snowballs, etc.).

 

There is one known “bug” in this plugin: players cannot change direction mid-jump.  This was disabled in order to also disable the mid-air friction that would ultimately stop a player’s movement.
