I appreciate that glass blocks can be useful for structures while panes are better suited to windows that sit in the middle of the surrounding blocks but I still feel uneasy with anything in minecraft that detracts from it being purely blocks.

Notch had the perfect idea of Minecraft: Blocky and pure.

Panes for windows. Glass blocks for domes, sunroofs etc. I actually made an aquarium before. Sadly, the only thing in it is squids... HURR DURR.

None Posted Image I think the default texturepack for glass is just ugly (too many white lines). I choose iron bars and use them for all my windows etc.

If I had to choose between glass and panes - I prefere glass.

Iron Bars look so ... Prison-ish ?

Glass ftw ... But If I'm low on resources I will never think twice about panes ;3

Both. Panes for windows but they look weird for sunroofs so glass for ceilings.

Glass Panes are actually more cost effective. It only takes 6 glass blocks to make 18 glass panes. so if your making a glass screen wall it makes more sense to construct it out of glass panes. I also like the way glass panes work. It makes your window frames look more unsubstantial.

Regular windows, glass walls -> glass panes.
Glassed roof, glassed floor, underwater dome, etc -> glass block.

I generally use glass panes for flat windows, but for everything else, I use glass blocks. One benefit glass blocks has over panes is that you can recover the block with silk touch, but even that won't work on glass panes.

I use the blocks for everything, including Windows.

I've never even bothered to craft panes, I learned with glass blocks and I prefer them.

They both are different in a way, so both at times.

Hmm... When i'm making windows, i find myself using glass panes much more often.
...But that's just my opinion.

I voted for Glass, since I currently only use them in Survival - I didn't even know how to craft Glass Panes. After I voted, I went on the Wiki and searched up the panes. Then I felt like an idiot...should have made panes long ago, since I rarely use Glass for anything other than windows...

Glass panes are largely more reliable since there much more affordable. 6 glass blocks give you an additional 10 glass panes and they also give that third dimension to your builds.
