Noticing a lack of color in your Minecraft world? Well this mod has plenty of it! The Colore Mod adds new ores to your world, containing the essence of color itself! After mining and refining the essence, you can craft blocks, tools, and armor! You can also combine essences to create up to 70 different colors! This mod includes slabs, stairs, fences, walls, panes, and even transparent blocks! This mod is great for pixel-artists, builders, and for anyone looking to add some color to their Minecraft world! And even more is planned to be added in future updates, so the possibilities will only grow! This is my first-ever Minecraft mod, and I've learned a lot through coding it, and I've really enjoyed it… and I hope you enjoy it as well!
Transparent tools & armor

Comments & feedback are welcome! Thanks for checking out my mod!
I have now updated the mod to 1.8.9, and I've added slabs as well! A lot has changed behind-the-scenes in the code to make it more efficient and easier to add new blocks, and I've learned quite a bit about how Minecraft & Forge works while coding this update, so expect the next update to come sooner! The mod will be ported to 1.9 and 1.9.4 soon, and I'm planning for the next update, 1.2, to have stairs, fences, walls, transparent blocks, transparent slabs, transparent stairs, transparent panes, bows, shields, and tools/armor rebalancing for 1.9.
not to be an ass but flat colored blocks already adds an adjustable amount of shades and flat colored blocks that are automatically generated so they dont use an individual texture each
it doesnt add armor or tools though
Yeah, I've seen that mod before... but until it adds slabs or stairs, my mod is still kind-of relevant. But I'll be honest, I'm making this mod to learn the basics of modding, and I do think my approach to the colored blocks concept is unique enough to warrant its existence. (Mining the literal "essence" of color and crafting blocks from it vs. dying cobblestone/glowstone/glass.) If I was making this mod purely because I thought it was a 100% never-done-before totally unique idea, I would have quit the moment I saw that block. But if you don't care about slabs, armor, tools, or the novelty of colors as mineable ores then yes... Flat Colored Blocks is amazing and you don't need my mod.
and stairs and slabs can be done with the chisel and bits from that same mod maker but thats another mod entirely and isnt made specifically for flat colors, + i assume it would be sort of annoying to make every slab and stair of the colors you want so sure.
Update 1.1: The Slab Update is now available for1.9!
When Forge for 1.9.4 is released, I'll update the mod to that version, and depending on what changes have been made, I may or may not support both 1.9 & 1.9.4 for future updates until 1.10 is released.
1.1 for MC1.9 Release Trailer:
EDIT: 1.1.1 has now been released!This is a bugfix update which fixes a bug where updating a 1.8.9 world to 1.9 would cause all the slab items in the world to be deleted. If you have created a world with the Colore mod in 1.8.9, do not load the world with Colore 1.1 if you update to 1.9. Use 1.1.1 instead to make sure you don't lose any items. I've also cleaned up and optimized some more code in this update, and I've also removed the item forms of double slabs, as they were unnecessary, vanilla slabs don't have them, and they were causing problems. (If you tried to place one in the 1.9 version of 1.1, the game would crash.)
Update 1.2: The Super Update is now out, and available for 1.9.4!
In this update, I've added a total of 700 new blocks, including stairs, fences, walls, panes, and even transparent blocks! The tools & armor have also been rebalanced for 1.9! Check out the trailer here:
No, because that mod hasn't been updated from 1.7.10, and this mod was originally released for 1.8. And no, I don't plan on porting the mod to 1.7.10. That's a dead version... everyone is moving over to 1.9.4 now, and there are too many nice changes in more recent versions of Forge & Minecraft that make modding a lot easier and more open to modification thanks to things like the model files, loot tables, and etc.
