    Are you using Optifine?
    Sometimes Optifine can try to put snow on a modded piece of grass/sapling/whatever and it'll use the wrong ID for the snow, and it'll look akward. I remember on Tekkit that same thing happening, only with sapphire pickaxes, so everywhere around my base was just filled with sapphire picks.

    It's part of NEI. I don't remember the keybind to turn it on and off because I changed mine. It shows where mobs can spawn do to low light levels.

    It's F7.
    F9 is from the newest NEI as well and it shows the chunk boundaries.

    I think it's F7 to turn it off, it shows you where mobs can spawn :)
    Double ninja'd, wow

    It's new, along with showing chunk boundaries.

    Oh hell yes, thank you all. I was looking for a mod that did that "where can mobs spawn" grid.. never crossed my mind that it's already implemented in one of the Packs mods. :D

    Something to note though is it ignores daylight. Useful in the overworld since mobs could just spawn at night...but eternal day ages it shows as mobs being able to spawn most everywhere, even though it will never be night and actually allow it.

    Also, it's not just light levels. It correctly shows that mobs can not spawn on xycraft blocks.

    Still waiting for a mod that shows spawnchunks :(

    Why? Slimes spawn in swamp biomes at night now.

    lol wtf I said SPAWN chunks, not SLIME chunks, the ones that are always loaded, at the spawn of the world and stuff, they are sorta like vanilla chunk loaders, but they can't be moved... here:

    By default minecraft will always load x number of chunks around the worlds spawn point as a permanent chunk loader. Which last I checked can be configured in the server config file but for SSP has no config.

    OHHH!!! so that is what that number is for... I thought it was spawn PROTECTION, not chunks...

    I guess that kinda makes sense.

    There is a spawn protection config for servers, though it's not part of the server.properties file by default, you have to add it yourself. It should be "spawn-protection" iirc. It could be added by a mod, but I think they put it into vanilla probably around 1.3/1.4 release.

    Zombe's modpack does a similar thing, except it shows yellow Xs where daylight means no spawn but nighttime means spawn. So you'd only have to watch out for red in a permanent daylight dimension
