If a player falls into lava, the player swiftly loses health. Lava is often used by gamers as a extreme way to tell other players to not mess with there stuff or it can be used to make a trap for spiders to fall into before steel spikes came to Total Miner.
Lava will tend to spread to open blocks adjacent to the pool evenly. Water also shares this characteristic. When lava reaches to an area covered by water, the lava will not coincide the water and substantially stop before reaching the water as if it were a solid block. This technique can be use to created creative textures and displays for Creative Mode.
- Lava can be hidden by water placed above the lava. This can be made as a trap to confuse players that the lava cannot be seen below the water.
- Lava can also be used in buildings by placing it between glass and another block. Note that lava is not a solid and can be seen through.
- You can clear out lava by using markers. (Needs verification if possible.)
