Ok for those of you who use TMI or some other mod that gives you different sizes of snow blocks, please dont get onto me, I just recently discovered this and want other people who didn't know to find out.

Playing around on my server with worldedit, i found a cool little thing that you can do to snow. this does not work with the give command and if you are wondering, this is completely legit (the snow, not obtaining the snow with worldedit).

How to get
Place down any block, or select a region that is touching ground. do //set 78:[numbers 0-7]. number 0 is the normal snow tile, and 2 is one higher, etc all the way up to a full block at 7. there is a little glitch where if you give yourself snow (78) and look at a piece of snow with an unnatural height, the snow you gave yourself will temporarily turn into whatever size you are looking at, until you look away.

I am thinking that if anyone is making a skyrim map or anything else that has snow in it, this could be helpful because the terrain could be smoother and also, when you walk through one of the weird snow blocks 4 or taller, they act like a half slab even though they are taller and you walk through the upper half of the block

Hope some of you mapmakers out there use this to make awesome maps!
