I think we should have a picture of a snow castle or igloo here. The page is too short. PurpleKiwi 22:51, 26 October 2010 (CDT)


Is it possible to put ladders onto snow? [ShadowScorn 18:47 October 1 2011]

Yes, they are solid blocks. LB(T|C) 23:07, 12 July 2012 (UTC)


Why don't snow blocks melt?[]

Regular snow melts when put next to torches, glowstone, etc., but snow blocks do not. The code for both blocks contains this method, exactly identical in each:

   public void updateTick(World par1World, int par2, int par3, int par4, Random par5Random)
   {
       if (par1World.getSavedLightValue(EnumSkyBlock.Block, par2, par3, par4) > 11)
       {
           dropBlockAsItem(par1World, par2, par3, par4, par1World.getBlockMetadata(par2, par3, par4), 0);
           par1World.setBlockWithNotify(par2, par3, par4, 0);
       }
   }

Explosion[]

Snow dampens explosions. If someone wants to put that into the article: https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-145 Fabian42 (talk) 22:07, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Snow blocks drop NOTHING when mined with hand, unlike other blocks that require a shovel to mine faster[]

So snow and snow blocks are the only blocks that drop nothing when mined with a first, and drop snowballs with a shovel? 99.225.26.102 12:21, 20 September 2021 (UTC)
