    Glad the 1.16 support came out. Plugin still works like a charm. Far more useful than placing it in a massive pool of water and then digging it all out, or using one of those concrete machines. Drop a stack of concrete powder in the cauldron, and boom, you can start building.

    Does what it says it does. After installing it, it just works. No need to do anything. It causes no issues. This plugin is requested by my players. Often when i mention this plugin is installed. New players say theyve just spend a lot of time using the old method to make concrete, always funny. very nice plugin that can save a lot of time. Would recommend.

    Thanks so much for responding so fast and pushing out another update that fixes the problem with the water levels. You are clearly a great plugin author, and this plugin rocks!

    Really good plugin. saves a lot of trouble for a lot of my players. I do not allow any form of anti-afk on my server, they have no excuse to make any machine that allows them to make concrete from powder automatically with this. (such machines stop them from going afk). The plugin does everything it says it does and havent had any issues since i installed it.

    Wonderful plugin! However, when I set the water level change value to zero instead of one, it is still removing water out of the cauldron when I put concrete in. Is there something I'm doing wrong or a way to fix this?
    1. Alex_qp
      Author's Response
      Thanks for your review. change_waterlevel was not allowed to be 0 that is why the plugin used the default value 1 instead (you should have got a warning message informing you about this). However I just updated the plugin to v1.3.1 addressing this issue, so please just update!

      Thanks for your review! If you are still on 1.12.2 please use version 1.1 ! All added features were only possible due to api changes from 1.12 to 1.13. You can download v1.1 in version history
