Here's one of the little server mods I worked on over thanksgiving: flowGrab

flowGrab patches the server to also allow grabbing liquid flows (ie, non-source liquid blocks) with a bucket, and that includes buckets in dispensers. Non-source liquid in a bucket does not become a source when placed, it just flows away, but it does mean you don't need to sacrifice a source block to get a water bucket or a lava bucket.

This is no big deal with water, really. Water sources regenerate in Minecraft. Lava sources, however, do not regenerate. Use one up and it's gone.

I think you see where this is going.

It means you can grab as many lava buckets as you want out of a flowing lava stream, and use them to power furnaces.

It also means you can use a single lava source to power a machine like an autosmelter indefinitely.

WHOO SUSTAINABLE ENERGY! Your world's industrial base is no longer limited by however long it takes to completely mine out the Nether!

The patch applies to a clean decompile of MCP 9.40 updated to Minecraft 1.12.2 in the usual manner.

Hmmm... George is squinting in each picture. I wonder if he needs glasses already.

For Halloween this year, both kids wanted Minecraft costumes. Denton went as King Creeper (his usual Minecraft skin), and George wanted to be a regular creeper as his minion.

The costumes got mostly finished this year; I ran out of time while painting the pixels on the shells. But a good time was had by all, and the kids even got to attack a Steve while trick-or-treating. Which is to say, they stood there and hissed at him while 'Steve's parents admonished him not to whack my kids with his sword (much appreciated).

Things went off better than the mess would indicate. Stay tuned for _Halloween 2: The Clean-uppening_, coming as soon as my left index finger heals well enough that I can type normally again.
