Makes a great companion to Chisels & Bits:
http://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/chisels-bits ( requires 1.5.1 or better ) which allows you to use the colored blocks as bits.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use this in my mod pack?
Can the textures be changed?
I choose to make use a slightly textured option as the default since I think it fits better with MC. However, there a several options you can use the mod configuration screen, such as flawless ( no defects ), stone, or hardened clay. If the options available do not suit your tastes you can also change the textures using a resource pack.
I don’t see any blocks in the crafting tool?
Make sure you have dyes and cobblestone/glass/glowstone in your inventory, if you are missing either then nothing will be craft-able. Any dyes registered with the ore dictionary should be usable. ( if you can’t find anything, check your configs, its possible to change the crafting ingredient. )
Absolutely, check the mod config gui, in the crafting tab you can change how many per craft, and which block is used to craft the item.
Why so many block ids?
This mod uses block states to generate mod compatible blocks, this means that other mods can detect and use these blocks for advanced features, such as chisels & bits, micro-blocks, or other features. They are also much more lightweight than a tile entity based implementation. Effort was made to ensure that the minimum required block ids were used for the generated shades.
Are there shade variations?
You can use the configuration screen to change the minimum, and maximum range for Hue, Value, and Saturation ( HSV Color space. ), as well as the number of variations for each color dimension. It is recommended to test your settings in a creative test world before accepting your choice.
Important Note: You should not change your settings in a world that is already using the mod, doing so will change the colors of the blocks already in the world.
Crafting Tool Recipe:
Using the item crafted you just need to have dyes and cobblestone/glass/glowstone in your inventory to craft items after opening the items gui. Some blocks require a few dyes to craft so try different dyes to see all the options.
This mod can use a large number of block ids if configured wrongly or if you want to have a large range of shades, just be aware.
No tile entities are used and all rendering is done using a single model + texture, this is done to ensure mod compatibility.
