Just thought I'd post a screenshot of the new decorative blocks. I think they look pretty cool. Posted Image

To confirm though, these new wooden planks don't make any new stairs, fences, or sticks. They're the same as regular planks apart from their appearance.

New sandstone blocks, next to old one on the left:

And the new planks:

These are the recipes I've found so far, I'm missing the last sandstone block at the moment.

How to get the different colored wooden planks:
Oak log will give you the default wooden planks.
Birch log will give you the white wooden planks.
Jungle log will give you the red wooden planks.
Pine log will give you the brown wooden planks.

Didnt take a look for 1.2.4 update yet, because the server I play is not updated.
I wish they put diferent colors for fences, doors, etc depending on the type of wood used to craft it too, but I dont think so :s

Very sexy. I've always felt that the different logs should deliver different-colored planks when crafted.

With these new sandstone blocks, I think there needs to be a method for making sand a renewable resource. (Especially if your world doesn't have a desert near spawn.)

Awesome planks are awesome.
When no one was looking, the Endermen took forty blocks.
They took 40 blocks. That’s as many as four tens. And that’s horrible.

They probably will, would love to get confirmation on that tho :). Because I already have some plans for the houses i've built and am looking forward to different coloured wood stairs, wooden half blocks, pressure plates, doors, fences, etc...

If the OP wants to add another recipe.

The 'Creeper-glyph' blocks can be crafted by putting two sandstone slabs in a vertical line in a crafting grid.

Also, is there a recipe for circle stone brick or is it still unobtainable outside of creative?

Ah nice they made more decoration blocks. I hope they'll eventually do the same for the nether bricks. Decorative nether bricks would be awesome!

Surely, the new wooden blocks are stunning, but the usefulness for me is only at 33%. There is only one type of "wooden stairs" and wooden slab" (default colour).  And still there aren't any sandstone stairs.  Posted Image

The most beautiful building block in Minecraft, sand stone, just got an upgrade.

You DO wanna quote my post if you wish to bring me back to the topic!

I'm Finnish, so typos may and will happen. Haters gonna hate.
