Well development is paused but i went ahead and setup a jenkins build server at http://ci.iongaming.org/job/VanityBlocks/ for when im doing test builds, as well as, just for simple bug fixes, such as a fix for the curtain hardness, still learning how jenkins works, so please bear with it. Check there for new/recent builds.(stables will still be put on the curseforge site)
Versions will now be different, with the build server it will become. VanityBlocksMcVersionhere.buildversionhere , so please dont be confused.Only 1.6.4+ is affected by this.
Well this is a simple mod. At this moment it only adds in a few blocks. I started this mod as i play with a bunch of tech mods(ic2, te,bc, etc), and i got tired of multiple blocks per and some not having blocks.
Always Remember, feel free to comment on thread or here. More attention, makes me want to code more.
Check for screenshots in the screenshot section...
So I have added some new blocks.. (All of these are configurable to be on) Such as... Storage blocks for common materials in the game(blaze rods(item form), coal storage item(8 coal in item forum(counteracts gregtechs coal dust) sugar cane, bone, leather, ender pearl, etc).
Storage blocks for some mod blocks(reason was wanting similiar textures for them, rather than 1 mod having 1 of the blocks, another mod another 1 of the blocks etc. as well as, was coded before Thermal expansion added their storage blocks), such as copper, tin, brass, nickel, etc.
Some forestry storage blocks(honey, honeydew, peat, apatitie).
Some random recipes such as wool to 4 string, nether quartz blocks to 4 nether quartz, etc, again more info in the screenshots.
Some new items such as, Mugs with milk/water to get regen/speed, remove poisions etc
Rupee's from zelda games for a game currency for server admins to award out.
Melting core which will take blocks/items/fluids(from mods liquid transport) and will delete it when it goes in.
World gen blocks, Marble and Ashford Black Marble. Each has a brick, chiseled, tile, and pillar texture.As well as slab, and wall variations. As well as stair form(uses a few ids, configurable to be on/off in config) (Explination of config, to get the most from the marbles, both need to be enabled for most of it to work).
Light Blocks such as a lava lamp full block which has a border and lava animation, and a stone bordered glowstone block (More to come).
Some random blocks like, Clay brick Block, white soul sand(sinking effect configurable), lapis brick and old lapis texture block.(more to come).
A hidden trapdoor. Takes the texture of the block its placed on. Made by place a trapdoor in crafting table.
Curtains. There is 2 versions(currently), East-West Version and North-South Version. To make the E-W curtain, door shape with wool. To make the N-S, its a E-W curtain in the table, and if you put the N-W in the table, you get the E-W curtain back.The Curtains Take the texture of the block you put on it, it wont work on all blocks. Wont work on Te's such as furnaces, chests, pistons, etc. The block Bounds is the bar like thing at the top. These are still developing, may change way they work as time goes on. Thanks so much to MineShopper, maker of carpenters blocks and painters pots for the base code and help to make this work.
Redstone Lamp extension, some more colors, work like vannila ones. Recipe is a redstone lamp + dye.
Up to 800 downloads, slowly but surely
As always anyone is welcome to make textures for any of it, if i like them, ill credit and then use them.
Grabs texture of block its placed on.
Vannila Storage Blocks
Modded Storage blocks
Redstone Lamps(missing a few colors)
Curtain blocks are 2 tall blocks. That take the texture of the blocks clicked onto them, they will not take texture of stuff like furnaces, chests, hoppers etc.
Works with modded and vannila blocks. 2 direction of the blocks. N-S and E-W. Recipes are as follows in image
Charcoal block will smelt 72 items
Blaze storage item will smelt 101 Items
Peat block(From forestry) will smelt 100 items
Please post ideas/suggestions here. As well as bug reports.

Changed to the vanilla 1.6 textures for wheat and coal blocks(if you care to change back, move the coal block.png and wheatblocktop/side.png's to the mods/vanityblocks/textures/blocks folder(they are located in old textures). (Not required, just a fix for those who want to use it with gregtech)
V:3.2.3: Added Furnace recipes to get iron/gold back from doors, armor etc(must not be damaged). Added magma cream to slime ball recipe.

Added the coal coke and peat blocks to Fuel handlers correctly. Updated to 1.5.2, also used srg_names, so it may work on new versions(not a garrentee). Fixed a structure generation problem with ruins that went 1 block down incorrectly. Changed the dungeon loot spawns to only spawn what is enabled(example, if enderpearl blocks are disabled, they wont spawn in dungeons, etc). (This should work with 1.5.1 as well(please let me know of any bugs found))

Atm you need to mine all these blocks with a pickaxe, no way for me to seperate them to use other tools without more block id's :/

Now: if you dont wish to unblock them(and store them), download the 1.3.5 version and the 2.0, (backup your world), and deblock all your blocks and reblock them(the 1.3.5 disables recipes for making the non metadata ones)
V1.4.1: Fixed a naming bug where you would loose all your blocks(only loose your lavalamps atm)
