Welcome to CraftHeraldry, as the title implies, this is a mod that allows you to Craft Heraldry in your game. What does this mean you ask? Well, here:
How did I make these banners you ask? Using the ingame editor:
Still not convinced? They can also be placed on walls and stand on the floor on 8 different directions. Also, they tend to bring dull buildings to life I find.
If you don't think images make justice to the mod, here's some videos:
"Shut up and take my money, how do I craft these awesome things?", you say.
Don't worry, I'll explain.
The first thing you'll need is a Heraldic Scroll, that allows you to write your heraldry on a scroll.
After you customized your heraldry to the best of your design skill (note, you must press the "Done" button!), it's time to put it in the world. You can either hang it in a wall or put it on the floor, pick your poison, wall and floor, respectively:
OK, now you have an empty banner and a scroll, what now? Well, easy, just plonk the banner down on the ground like a regular block (note, it needs 2 block high clearance, for both wall and floor banners) and right click it with your scroll (it won't get consumed). And bob's your uncle, you got your banner.
There are 876 different icons you can pick for your heraldry. All of them gotten from the amazing Lorc, at game-icons.net!
YES, this means you can use it in your modpack, video, let's play, server, whatever, don't bother asking, just do it. Just say I made it and link back here and we'll get along. And if you did make something with this mod, feel free to poke me so I can know
Q: (Insert any other question here related to me, not my mod)
A: Check the FAQ section under my profile.
Q: Aren't these icons the same icons as the Thaumcraft aspects?
A: Indeed they are, me and azanor got the icons from the same place, that being game-icons.net. I only knew of this website because azanor mentioned it, so you can also thank him for this mod existing
Q: The website says there's over 1000 icons, why are there only 800 or so in this mod?
A: I removed quite a few of them I deemed unfitting to the theme.
Q: This is such a small mod, why is the downloaded file so huge?
A: There's over 800 64x icons in there, what did you expect.

I'm not the one that's going to fix that, it's known that optifine breaks some things, so yeah :/
Drats I can't run my mod setup without optifine, my FPS suffers horribly so i guess this is a mod ill have to pass up on, as amazing as it is. Damage indicators used to give me this issue too but they somehow fixed it.
Great mod, my girlfriend and I love the idea and it will be a great addition to our war room. Unfortunatly when we both log out of our server and log back in the banner goes back to a blank canvas. If one of us stays logged in the canvas will continue to show the picture. it is only when we both log out that it goes blank.
Just checked and It also does not stay in single player, upon logging back in the canvases are blank.
