This module causes player movement to form natural paths.


Players walking or sprinting will randomly trample blocks. The trampling effect will only happen if the player is moving. Moving slowly will reduce the effect; Slow falling[1], sneaking, or walking while drawing a bow will remove the effect completely.

Grass blocks can convert to dirt blocks. Dirt blocks can convert to coarse dirt blocks. 2-deep snow layers can be trampled to 1-deep layers, which can be destroyed completely by the trampling effect. Flowers, 2-high flowers, grass, and mushrooms can also break if stepped on. Below is a list of all blocks that can be trampled.

Blocks That Get Destroyed

2-Tall Flowers

If Metallurgy is installed, a new Shamir called Celaro is accessible. Celaro is bundled with Desire Lines and can not be downloaded separately.

If a player is wearing Boots of Ostara, the effects of desire lines will not happen. For crafting and other features of Boots of Ostara see the main module page.

If a player creates a shockwave with the Vibro Shamir, the 5x5 area around them will be affected by desire lines. For more info about the Vibro Shamir, see the main module page.
