Block states, Player
If the player is falling next to powder snow when attempting to move into the powder snow, the player will collide with the powder snow instead of moving into the block.
- Go to the top of a tall wall/pillar of Powder Snow
- Walk off the edge
- Attempt to move back into the pillar (while you're falling)
Create a pillar of powder snow up to build height:
Teleport yourself 100 blocks into the air:
You can't move into the pillar of Powder Snow
The player would be able to move into the Powder Snow, as it doesn't have a side collision box
- This can be reproduced with or without leather boots on - the behaviour is the same
- After a lot of dragging a pig around with a lead, I came to the conclusion that this affects other entities too.
- You can even place powder snow on every other block (see below). The behaviour is still the same.
- Gliding into powder snow with elytra only works if you do it side-on.
