Just bringing attention to this issue. Makes building on the ocean pretty annoying.

Maybe intentional to avoid people abusing block swap for avoiding sand fall damage? If so, would recommend to just make the highest block swappable.

Unsure if its the same issue for silt/slush

Hi @DatShadowJK, it is like you thought, that it’s intentional for all gravity affecting blocks to avoid abuse. You can’t block swap sand, silt, slush.

You can’t replace sand with a normal block. However, you can replace a normal block with sand. And you can replace a sand block with sand (a different type of sand)l.

Oh heh, thought so. Just find it irritating that you can't block swap the highest block. Thank you!
