Its back! After a prolonged absence, Paintable Wood is back. It is essentially the same mod that it was before but with a few tweaks to make it better and it is now Forge compatible. Of course it still works perfectly in SMP and SSP.
Paint Planks! Stairs! Fence Posts! Half-Tiles! Wool! and create Vertical Planks (Barn Planks) and paint those too!
Paintable Wood is exactly what it says on the tin. You can paint all your normal wooden planks in a variety of colours, including White-Wash and Varnish. You can also clean them back to the default wood. Paintable Wood also includes a recipe for Barn Planks (vertical planks) and you can paint all Wool too. This mod is great for adding a splash of colour to your towns and builds or for making a huge canvas in the sky and bringing out the Van Gogh in yourself
Paintable Wood, Paintable Wools and all coloured plus clean Brushes are available in the Creative mode inventory for all map makers and pure Creative players.
Paint Brushes paint 32 tiles then break.
There are a couple of quirks with half-tiles, if you make a full block from two half-tiles they will not paint and they will not stack upon each other if already painted, but that just makes a full block so just use a normal plank block anyway.
Comes with config file to easily change IDs and turn Barn Planks, Fence and Half-Tiles off or on.
Barn Planks are by default coloured with Varnish. You can paint them any colour but cannot clean them, just re-paint them. This will also be fixed in the next update.

02.02.2013 (slightly later in the day) - Fixed stairs. Can now paint all wooden stairs and not just oak.
02.02.2013 - Complete overhaul of Paintable Wood and Wool. Added Forge compatibility. Added Fence. Added Half-Tiles. Added Stairs. Full config file for all IDs and the ability to turn off which parts of the mod you do not wish to use, or if you want to save ID space. Stopped the Blockalot mod development until it is asked for or I want to fiddle again
08.04.2012 - Updated and split Blockalot into two mods. Blockalot and Paintable Wood. Added Barn Planks (vertical planks) to Paintable Wood. Added additional command to config file for Paintable Planks to turn Barn Planks off should you run out of IDs. Skipped 1.2.4 and went straight to 1.2.5 as previous version was a waste of effort coding for with its two week life span. Took out the Hieroglyphs recipe due to them being finally added in vanilla Minecraft.
15.03.2012 - Updated to V3 to include Paintable Wooden Planks and Paintable Wool using a Paint Brush and Dye. Uses no extra ID's. Added all extra Blocks and all Paintable Planks to the Creative Mode Inventory for ease of use to map makers and Creative players.
13.03.2012 - Updated to V2 to include three blocks previously un-craftable but built into Minecraft and added ability to change ID of blocks via config file should any conflicts arise with other mods.
12.03.2012 - Blockalot V1 released on SSP and SMP.
Older versions are no longer supported.

Suggestions... Thatch steps for better looking roofs and vertical slatted planks (my barn will look better)
Thanks for the compliment and download
I actually have vertical planks ready to go and am looking into steps amongst others. There are some considerations I need to take into account before I do so though, primarily not using too many IDs because this will greatly increase the chances of mod conflict with others.
This is really nice. And the config file is a great addition.
Any plans on making more coloured bricks?
Yes, I have plans to add steps and fence but need to get my head around it first, still learning
I will also add more normal blocks etc as time progresses and I find a need for the block. I figure that if I can find a need plus be happy with the texture etc then it will go in Blockalot.
I will probably have to use one of the various API's though to implement them as I really don't want to take up any more base ID's than I already have, so I also need to take a look at that code and work out how it all goes together. Its all a learning process for me!
Well, hopefully many more blocks(kinda), more options within blocks anyway. I don't want to say too much because whilst its working for me at the moment I haven't done the SMP side yet, and that may (but shouldn't) cause me issues. I won't release it without working SMP because I use this mod on a server I admin and to be honest I only care about SMP, SSP is just an easy option on the side
The mod won't take up any more IDs or sprites that it currently does though and won't require some extra API installed either.
I am also working on some stairs but there are inherent problems with that as I have discovered so they will probably not be in V3.
Can you make some statues and maybe some blocks with Greek letters, Egyptian hieroglyphs ,some stone blocks with metal reinforcements around the corners, more brick pattern options wouldbe awesome too. this is neat it always bothered me that there was so little diversity to the building materials =)
