Hello everyone.

Here I release my first mod, Bluestone.
This mod adds new variants of redstone to minecraft:
  • Bluestone
  • Hellstone
  • Greenstone
  • Bluestone Blocks
The different colors of redstone will only power their own color, and repeaters.

You can lay them beside each other, without them connecting.

Hellstone is the same, but. There is an additional way of powering hellstone.
When you stand on it, it activates. Think of it as absorbing your power, to activate itself.

Bluestone Block can transmit signals all directions, horizontal and vertical. It is resistant to water and won't break as easy as redstone. It is recommended to power it with repeaters, as powering it with redstone, bluestone or hellstone will cause problems.

But... pictures tell more...
Spoiler:


To craft bluestone, take some redstone and mix it with lapis lazuli.

To craft hellstone, take some redstone and mix it with netherwarts.
Posted Image
To craft greenstone, take some redstone and mix it with Cactus green.
Posted Image
To craft the bluestone block, take 9 bluestone and.. make a block.

Nice, this looks really nice.

Any chance of source code? Would like to see how you did it as it looks amazing and I can't understand redstone code for shiz.

You could just copy the code of the redstone and make some minor changes to the code and give it a new texture.

So you copied the code and changed some variables/constants to make the effect you wish? I see, but if so, why does the mod come with two base classes, I find them unnecessary.

to make them compatible with modloader.
redstone wire needed to be changed, aswell as the block renderer.
the code for the colors is a genius piece of code.

ummm.... eloraam has made something like this already. and hers is better(more types, redstone travels further, goes on walls and upside down, is waterproof, and capable of connecting together with right pipe). so good first mod, but really ninja'd. but it is 1.0, so it will do, untill eloraam updates.
(sorry if that sounded like me being a troll)

I know eloraams mod, but it ads more than only redstone.
and I searched for a mod that only adds new sorts of redstone, so I made this one.

Almost done adding purplestone, a purple version of redstone which can connect to redstone and bluestone.
bluestone is now able to go underwater just like purplestone.

Great Mod, but i think the Bluestone should be crafted with one lapis lazuli, the old crafting recipe could be used for the Purple stone.
The volume of a pizza with the radius z and the height a is: pi*z*z*a
