  1. idk if possible but would be amazing if there were a way to color/dye normal blocks, ie- cobble, stonebrick, stone. I always loved having black stonebrick myself.

    other blocks would be:

    any equivlient of those that have slabs and stairs

    and so on and so forth until everything is beautiful and no so grey

    well texture- ah-hem I mean resource packs re-color blocks. you might even be able to make like a cobblestone(2) or something to have multiple colors for a block.

    We are limited on the actual amount of different blocks we can add. There are two reasons for this -- Mojang and Bukkit. Certain blocks store metadata. So white wool has a block ID of 35, but orange wool has a block ID of 35:1. Unless the block is known to need metadata, Bukkit resets it. So, we could have hot pink obsidian, but as soon as you place it, it would reset to black obsidian. WE allows the staff to get around this, but normal schmoes (like us) can't use WE Also, if Bukkit gets their podzol together, Mojang only allows 16 (0-15) places for metadata. Technically, we can't add anymore colors of wool, and there are other blocks like that as well. So, we are limited by Bukkit's slightly invasive resets and Mojang's lazy(ish) programming (it does sorta make Minecraft run faster).

    ATM, we can't do different colors of stone, but with 1.8 that block will allow metadata. Also, slabs and stairs will really never be very open. About half of the values are taken up by what is already there since all slabs and stairs you can use a pick on are the same block ID and all the wooden ones are the same ID.

    Honestly, I'm not an expert on this, and I learn something new every time Raemis or Doom posts bellow me. Shot either of them a PM if you are really curious.

    Actually, that's possible. Cobblestone isn't though. Also, there is a small number of variants that could be implemented.

    And it isn't Raemis' fault. He shouldn't have to recode Bukkit to make it work right. That's someone else's job. He's recoding stuff that the staff finds more important than your sexy black cobblestone.

    I'll see if I can at least make a texture to tide you over.
  6. hmmm? i never said it was Raemis fault lol i just suggested he make a sexy plugin that allowed moar datavaules for blocks. since you said blah blah blah above.

    and i dont want sexy black cobblestone, i want sexy stonebrick... huge sexy difference.

    To the best of my knowledge, everything said by gnatz is accurate. And I do believe a plugin to provide that sort of functionality could be coded, but one of you guys is going to have to give me more hours in the day to make it happen any time soon.

  8. it doesnt matter anymore, i give up crafthub due to the childish behavior of some staff and dont wanna deal with it anymore.
