This article describes a feature in an upcoming release of Minetest. It has become a part of the development version of Minetest and will likely become a part of the following stable release. However, things may be subject to change before release.
|A block in Minetest Game|
|Generated||Yes (except in v6)|
It occours naturally in temperate and cool oceans on top of ordinary sand in shallow water in temperate and cool climates and has a height from 4 and 6 blocks.
This block is not generated in the v6 map generator.
To place a kelp, you have to put it on the bottom of a column of water-like blocks (e.g. in a lake or ocean) at a depth of at least 5 blocks. Placement may fail at a depth of 5-7 blocks because the kelp might attempt to “grow” higher and fail. In that case, just try again until the placement succeeds.
Although the base block looks like sand, it is an entirely different block. Unike real sand, it does not fall and shares the mining properties with the kelp. In fact, the kelp and the “fake sand” block are one unit.
