Nyx Forge Mod not working on latest SpongeForge for 1.12.2

Hey all, I’m having an issue with a mod called “Nyx” for spongeforge latest 1.12.2. If a cauldron full of water sits out overnight, by morning it should be emitting particles that allow you to transform its contents with a lapis drop. The particle event never happens on a server with spongeforge. On the same server, i removed sponge, restarted, and the cauldron began working as expected. I reached out to the mod owner and he suggested I hit up sponge and did not want to provide any support.

Any ideas out there?
