So Minecraft 1.5 finally made it so that snow can stack up …… but the guys at Mojang seem to have missed something. The snow doesn’t pile up on it’s own! Well, this mod fixes that. When it’s snowing, any snow blocks that have a view of the sky will randomly grow one layer higher every once in a while. Also, when snow blocks melt, they don’t melt all at once, but instead one layer at a time. Snow will never pile up more than one block.
Snow shovels are special tools that only work on snow. When used on layered snow, they drop the layers rather than snow balls, and when used on block snow they drop the block and not snow balls. Because snow is such a soft material, snow shovels will last five times longer than regular shovels.
There are several different varieties of snow shovel, wood, stone, iron, gold, diamond, bronze and steel if you have mods that add those metals.
All recipes are as follows, just substitute whatever materials for the iron in this pic.
There is also an alternative recipe for Show shovels if this one is causing compatibility issues. This recipe is the same but replace the stick in the middle with a wooden shovel. This alternative recipe can be enabled from the config.
I also added a crafting recipe for snow golems, but only if you have NEI installed. (The egg would be useless without it.)
There is also a recipe to turn four snow layers into one snow block. Just put them in a square like you would with snow balls.
These can all be disabled in the config file, and the snow shovel id’s can be changed too.
Snow is now allowed to land on any block with a solid top surface, including Glass and Ice. Watch your frozen lakes get covered in snow.
The 1.6+ installers use the new minecraft launcher. If you have not used the new launcher yet, make sure to run the installer at least once. Log into minecraft and load the latest version/release. Then run installer and install the mod.
If you already have a modded profile/version, you can have the installer install it to that version. If you leave it set to “(Default)” then the installer will keep the default structure for installs and will only create a modded profile if one is not present. See “Default Mod Profile” below for the version of minecraft where this mod will install.
The installers will install all mods that use the same profile into the same mods folder/jar.
The installer only needs one default version of minecraft in the versions folder to install a mod.
If Forge/ModLoader is not present then installer by default will add a version of Forge/ModLoader this mod is compatible with.
Internet Explorer users:
When downloading the .exe version of the installer, save the installer to a location like desktop, then run it. Do not run it straight from the browser, if you do you might get the “Skydaz Addons has stopped working”.

PLEASE CREATE A BACKUP BEFORE INSTALLING ANY MODS – START WITH CLEAN MINECRAFT AND YOU WONT HAVE ANY ISSUES!!! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MESSED UP MINECRAFT. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
