So I've just finished building the houses for my village, but now I need to get the ground work done.
Here's a picture: http://imgur.com/q48kbqJ
What I would like to accomplish is for the top layer of the walled in area to be changed out to snow, with scattered patches of packed ice. The stone slabs represent where I'll be putting a path through the village.
What I'm going to need help with is snow gathering. I have a single chest full of snow, but I'm not sure how much that will actually cover. With the lag we're currently experiencing, snow farms are really tedious. I'm currently willing to pay a diamond for every 3 stacks of snow.
P.S. If you are willing to assist with laying down the path or snow, let me know. I am able to do it on my own, but an extra set of hands would get it done a lot faster.
