Finally Updated To 1.5.2

The Mod has also been improved. It has a much more efficient algorithm for spreading!
ENJOY!

DOES NOT REQUIRE MODLOADER

This mod is inspired by the Yogscast's shadow of Israphel series. It causes sand blocks to spread in your world.
I have added the function to turn this on and off.

It allows you to choose from a list of setting in the options menu:

Off - no sand will spread
Normal Mode - Sand will spread Slowly
Crazy Mode - Sand will spread quickly and also infect blocks beneath itself
INSANE MODE - Sand will spread very quickly in all directions!

Bedrock and Chests will not be infected by the sand

It writes to the "Options" file and reads it. This means it will remember your settings, which is nice.

Look in the pictures for a sneak preview of INSANE MODE.
Another feature in sand compaction. If you place a block on top of sand it will become sandstone. This will reduce lag and it also quite cool.

Have Fun and stay away form the sand!

Please give me some more sandy ideas in the comments :)

it would be great if the sand didn't destroy blocks when placed on it and if wearing certain types of boots it wouldn't hurt you(ex. Iron or diamond boots). I also think that if it is based on The Shadow of Israphel then either Cobblestone or Stone should be able to stop it. even in insane mode cause then it can just jump over the wall like at Verigans hold.
it crashed my minecraft
you should make it were when it touches lava it become glass
Here's an idea:
I know its called infectious sand,[size=10pt] but maybe you can make it to where you can chose what block generates[/size]

Could you not correct the code to detect whether or not the sand can be placed on aother block, instead of in insane mode the blocks just fall and create mass of amounts of entities because it doesn't detect if it is actually on a block.

This looks cool, but are you planning to update to 1.5.2?
Actually yes. I will just do it now. Should have done it ages ago.
I would love to see this "virus" concept be available to other blocks - eg dirt, stone, gravel, cobblestone

Also - it would be extremely useful if there was an additional setting that would only affect blocks placed after it is switched on - ie not every sand block in the world, just those I place now. I hope that I make sense. This cold be a fantastic terraforming tool, with inbuilt randomness you don't get from any other world editing tool.

Hey dude I'm a modder myself! I was wondering, how do you get a block to update faster, like increase the ticks per second or have multiple updates per tick? Thanks!

http://www.planetminecraft.com/mod/bio-engineering---a-mod-by-live2pwn/
It cant be more then one update per tic. That is the default at least. You can make it slower. But I dont think you can make it faster
Diamond this mod if u think Shadow of Israphel is the best!
hahaha thanks, wish I could Diamond it myself!
:P

and i didnt get any credit for this?...
http://www.planetminecraft.com/forums/want-mod-made-taking-requests-t24320-12.html go to page 2 about middleish
No i have not read this post. But it does seem we had similar ideas.
I good example if this is Swan and Eddison. They both had the same ideas, Swan even made the light bulb first, but Eddison made it as well because he didn't know that Swan had made it. And today very few people recognise Swan as the inventor of the light bulb. But Eddison didn't steal his idea, nor does he need to give him credit as he didn't Know Swan had had the same idea.

Hope this anecdote explains things :)

poor Nicholas Tesla... Nicholas Tesla invented the lightbulb before the two, but was to scared to publish it because he thought the government would buy his product, and he'd have no job. he also invented the tesla gun, one of the most earliest form of "powerful electricity" and a bunch of other stuff... but I see where you're coming from

And as for Swan and Eddison, Swan invented it (or found out about it) before Eddison, but Eddison published it first.
This is all very true :)

Its all good under the sun. good explanation diamond up for referances + a good idea ;)
ps I also think your a ok and reasonable guy that makes quality stuff so i might sub.
pss you should also add the stuff from my suggestion "make it spread on top of stuff not too stuff so you can wall it off or just make it so it cant spread to dirt water trees cobblestone and stone so it has to spread on top of stuff. also make it fairly easy to get rid of, i have tryed other infection type mods and once you put it down it is the end of your game dont make it so it spreads extreamly fast or just make the spread speed custom." and yes i was rambleing lol
Yes, I may well do that, It would make it run a bit faster at least :s
But i have made it customisable, maybe not how you imagined it.

ummm... i downloaded it and installed it correctly and it only has ON OFF and insane mode(to be added) and the sand only spreads when i first place it. soooooo what?
Interesting, re-download it now. And it will not spread unless it is updated. This is unfortunately how minecraft works
how do you install the mod?!
Tell me someone!!!
Move the 4 files into your minecraft.jar. That is all!

i think it would be great if you could make it change 1 block per tick ( put then it would kill any computer)
Each block of sand will attempt to do one of these things every three ticks:

- Fall
- Spread

It will only do these things if it also meets some other criteria as well.
So with every block doing this it happens very fast. However it also causes the tick rate to slow down if there are too many sand blocks, so they will take longer to spread or fall.
If I set it to 1 up date per tick it would make it faster if there was only one block of sand but after a while the tick rate would reduce so much it wouldn't make a difference.

What a long reply :)

Tried this... Got a black screen. The mods i have are Modloader, Optifine, Wolfangs more ores. i don't think the more ores can cause this... but can you make a version compatible with Modloader? I really wanted to try this...
It doesnt work with optifine. Make a copy of your bin then redownload minecraft then install this without optifine. Then when you are done delete your bin and put the old one back!
Could I Test Insane Mode? Or HELP Code It?
Its fully added now. So yes, you can test it :)
diamond :D this is like grey goo mod lol
only this is more epic, and customization :)
yeee
