Bigger Sponge Absorption Radius extends the functionality of the sponge block. By placing multiple blocks next to each other, the absorption radius increases. Whenever the water hits a dry (non-wet) sponge, it absorps water in the combined radius around that block. Uses a recursive function to count how many sponge blocks are placed next to each other, whenever they are neighbouring blocks. The radius is calculated by the default sponge radius * neighbouring sponge block count. Wet sponges are counted but cannot start the absorption process.

The effect in action; all sponge blocks used will be turned into a wet sponge.
