Fire Jets

Fire Jets spawn over lava source blocks. They do not harm the player or any mobs. The height and duration is based on the number of lava source blocks beneath the fire jet.

Water Ripples

When rain or water drops hit water ripples will be generated. A derpy squid photobombed the screenshot. v3.3.7.0+

Steam Jets

Steam Jets will be generated around areas where lava meets water.


Water that flows downward can generate splash particle effects as well as sound. The splashes are larger if the water falls a greater distance.

Large Waterfall

Naturally generated waterfall that I discovered wandering around in my test world. (The clouds are generated by Weather2.)
