    XtraBlocks A range of mods that add a wide variety of new blocks, Lighting, liquids
    and items to Minecraft. Includes many blank numbered blocks that you can add your own textures to.

    Bring your adventure maps or creative builds to life with a huge range of variety.

    Have you ever wanted more texture's without sacrificing vanilla blocks.
    Do you want more lighting options? Torches, Lamps & Light Blocks
    How about colored and stained glass, or more variety of stairs and slabs?
    Ever wish that buttons/pressure plates would hold your doors open a bit longer... or maybe a lot longer?
    Maybe you even wanted more liquids, doors, cakes, fences and gates or multi-textured blocks?

    This is a very large mod, with well over a thousand blocks. It has been designed so that you can use as few or as many as you require.
    There are quite a few useful blocks that come already textured, but the vast majority of blocks have blank textures (numbered for convenience) that you need to texture yourself.

    How to disable blocks or remove specific modules:

    1. To disable blocks. All you need to do is set the id of the block you want to disable to -1 in the config file. As a general rule, only the first block of each module can't be disabled (this is to prevent a crash as the icon is used for the creative tabs)
    Another thing to note, is that it is not recommended to disable blocks in the fences module. To enable torches to be placed on fences, they share some code that will cause crashes when one of them is not present.

    2. All of the modules are independent. To remove a module, just open the mod .zip then open the folder called "xtrablocks" and delete the folder of the modules that you don't want. You can then remove the corresponding texture folders from the "mods" folder.

    How to change block/item names:

    Now you can rename any of the blocks/items whatever you like.

    To use the language files, follow the simple instructions in the spoiler below
    To edit the names, you will need to open the XtraBlocks mod.zip and then go into the assets folder.
    Open the folder for the module you want to edit and then go into the "lang" folder.
    Just double click the en_US.language file in the zip, to open it with you text editing program.
    Change the name/names (as shown below) then save it and allow it to update the zip.

    Note: If the file does not open up in your text editor of choice, just drag the language file to your desktop (or somewhere of your choosing) and change the default program that opens it.
    (Right click on the file and select open with, then select the default program, i.e. Notepad++ or a similar program.) Now that the file has been associated, all language files should open directly from the .zip.

    To edit the language file, you need to change only the part after "name=" at the end of each string. e.g.
     tile.MultiStone01.name=MultiStone 01<br>




    would be changed to.
     tile.MultiStone01.name=The name of your choice<br>

    Installing:

    Install the recommended version of Forge (as per Forge instructions)
    Place the XtraBlocks mod.zip inside the mods folder

    How to texture the blocks:

    Textures can be edited directly from the mod .zip or you can extract the texture folders to another location for editing and then drop them back into the .zip when done.

    All textures can be resized to whatever you need. rages 16 - 256 will work with minecraft alone. Sizes above that will need HD support from either Optifine or MCPatcher.

    1) Open the mods .zip file and then open the assets folder.
    2) Open the folder of the module you want to re-texture and then navigate into the textures folder.
    3) Open the folder that you need, be it Blocks, Items or GUI (choices vary between modules).
    4) Select the texture that you want to edit and open it in the texture editing software of your choice.
    (Photoshop, PaintShopPro, Gimp)
    5) Edit the texture. You can either design you own with the tools in your paint package or you can replace the texture with one from a texture pack/image hosting site.
    6)Save the image (making sure not to change the name) directly back to the zip, or to wherever you extracted them to. If the textures were extracted, you will now need to drop them back into the mods.zip
    (replacing the original texture)

    How to use with resource packs:

    Just open the .zip for you resource pack and you should see an assets folder.
    Open the assets folder and drop all of the texture folders from the Xtrablocks assets folder into it.
    (make sure that they are just in the assets folder and not in assets/minecraft)

    That's it. now you can change textures or block names from your resources pack.

    Known issue with Lily Pads
    There are two small issues with them.
    Firstly, I couldn't get the item icon to grab it's texture from the block. This means that there is an identical texture for both the block and the item. I will continue to try and get them to use the same texture for both.
    Thee second issue will affect people using Optifine. I just did a quick check to make sure they were compatible and noticed that Optifine causes the colors to be different. I'm not sure what I can do about that, but I will investigate further.

    *32 x StainedPane blocks - (metadata) Make StainedGlass blocks with your favorite textures.

    (Much thanks and credit goes to CptSpaceToaster for allowing me to pick through his code for the panes)
    For more details about the Stained Glass Panes, see spoiler below.

    *Stained glass panes are only available for 1.6.4
    Now for a little insight, as to how the blocks are set up.
    The stained glass panes are metadata blocks, meaning you get 16 blocks for only 1 block id.
    Each Pane takes it's main (face) texture from a stained glass block and then has a separate texture for the borders.

    Originally, I was going to link them to the existing stained glass blocks. I decided that as many of them may already be in use that users may not want the new panes textures to be bound to them. In the end, I added two new sets of StainedPaneBlocks and two sets of StainedGlassPanes. All of the panes will connect to each other, as well as any of the stained pane blocks (they will not connect with the original stained glass blocks though).
    Texture wise, I have just reused the same textures as the existing stained glass blocks (only a little darker.)

    With regards to disabling blocks in the config file. You can disable either of the StainedGlassPanes (leaving the StainedPaneBlocks active), but you can't disable the StainedPaneBlocks if you have the StainedGlassPanes enabled.

    1 x WoodSplitter _ Place in a crafting bench with a wood log to make kindling.
    DIYSoundBlocks
    16 x DIYMusicBlocks
    These blocks have a record associated with them and will play when powered. Handy if you want to play a song in a certain area, or maybe add some atmosphere or a voice over.
    You can edit the records the same as with DIYDiscs. Audio must be in .ogg format.
    Note: The discs are not available in game, They can only be played via their specific block.
    Music blocks are affected by each other, activating a second music block will cancel out the first music block..

    To use DIYMusicBlocks, audio must be in .ogg format and be placed at:
    ".mod.zip/assets/xtrablocksdiysoundblocks/records"
    Name each .ogg file sequentially as: SoundDisc01 - SoundDisc16

    32 x DIYSoundBlocks
    These blocks play a sound when activated. These work best when the sound file is kept between 1 & 15 seconds long.
    Sound blocks are unaffected by each other, so multiple blocks can be used at the same time.

    To use DIYSoundBlocks, audio must be in .ogg format and be placed at:
    ".mod.zip/assets/xtrablocksdiysoundblocks/sound"
    Name each .ogg file sequentially as: 01Sound - 16Sound

    Changelog


    XtraBlocks-1.7.10-1.1.7b

    Added six iron bars to the "Buildings" module.




    XtraBlocks-1.7.10-1.1.7


    Made some changes to the spiral staircases.
    Now they are a single block with a separate invisible collision block for the top step.

    Added 3 new path blocks, dirt, gravel and cobble (DIYXtras).
    The path blocks sit just below the level of regular blocks, similar to tilled dirt.

    Added 4 new window blocks. Windows can be opened and closed by right clicking.
    When open, objects can pass through them. (Currently the wooden shutter does not block out light)

    Fixed a bug that caused some models to disappear at certain angles.
    There are still a few models in the Tombs and Furniture modules that could not be fixed due to their size.

    Decided to leave the 3 particle blocks (that I made a while back) in the DIYPowered module for testing.


    Due to issues with the forum editor, the OP has not been updated since August 2014.
    I have released several updates via the forum, but many people may have missed them.

    Below is a list of all the changes made since XtraBlocks-1.7.10-1.1.2

    Fixed an old bug where disabling blocks with an item renderer for models (render the model as a 3D block when in hand/inventory) would cause a crash on the server. As a result, I have reimplemented the item renderer for all of the different dice blocks as well as for all of the models in DIYXtras.

    Added some new particle effects to the Brazier and Campfire (DIYXtras).

    Fixed up a few recipes, most notably the DIYSigns. They now craft the item as intended (instead of the block).

    Added some new recipes to the Buildings module.

    Added 16 more SoundBlocks, in keeping with the additions to 1.6.4 and 1.7.10.

    Removed door handles from the textures of all iron doors (DIYPowered).

    Fixed the attack damage for all the swords (DIYWeapons).

    Added an additional 64 blank items (DIYAdmin).

    Added 8 x DIYBeds (DIYDecorations).

    Added models for all the card readers.

    Added a Master Card that works on all card readers and card buttons.

    Added 2 sets of spiral stairs.

    Added 6 x Upright Slabs.

    Fixed the bounding box for the upright slab collision block (DIYFurniture)

    Hello again,


    I
    was wondering whether it'd be possible for you to release a version of
    the latest release that does not have recipes, as I find it annoying
    that when I retexture something and give it a recipe using CustomNPCs,
    there is also still the default recipe, which is often a lot cheaper...

    So I'd appreciate it if you could release a version without recipes included, thanks in advance.


    As requested, the latest version with recipes removed. :)

    Hi MindKrafter,


    Will you be updating to 1.9? Are you waiting for the 1.9 Forge first?


    Any ETA on when you might have it ready?


    Thanks


    No current plans to update beyond 1.7.10.

    The changes involved are just too much work for a mod of this size. Based on how long it took me to update to 1.7.10, I estimate that it would take me over 200 hours to complete. :(


    I may however, start work on a new version that would be much smaller and more manageable with updates. Once Forge has a stable 1.9+ build I will look into it.

    Hey MindKrafter. Thanks for this great MOD. I have a few questions/problems.


    1. I'm not able to disable blocks. Can't find a config file with block ids, where is this config document?


    There should be a folder named "config" in your main Minecraft directory. (the same place as your mods, saves, screenshots, etc, folders.)


    2. I'm planning to start a big creative project and there is some blocks I
    want and some I can do without. Right now there is like 8 - 10 tabs or
    something, is it possible to move blocks from one tab to another? Kind a
    want to make my own categories with the blocks I need.


    No, that's not possible.
    You can however, remove any modules that don't contain any blocks that you want to use.

    3. Is it possible to copy a block and multiply it? I see trapdoors very usefull and want more of them.

    No, sorry. You can't do that either.



    I am willing to make a custom pack for you, if you want to let me know which blocks you want (can add a few more trapdoors too).

    Alternatively, if you know anything about modding, I could send you the source code and you could set it up however you like.

    Hey MindKrafter, Remember before when i asked you for a version with more beds? You sent me a link to that version containing extra 10 beds.

    i have accidentally removed that version from my laptop, and i couldn't find that link again, Can you send it again please?




    That was for 1.7.2, right? This should be the one you're after.

    MindKrafter, could you possibly add a block or something that you can walk through but is also transparent? Since it seems you can no longer make hidden doorways behind paintings (unless you stack signs in the doorway, which really bothers me aesthetically), could my suggestion be a viable way of doing it?


    You should be able to use the fake panels or raised fake panels for this purpose. They both support transparency and can be walked through.
    If you do use transparency with them though, bear in mind that the imaged is flipped on the opposite side, this means that you need to make the image symmetrical for it to work correctly. (see images in spoiler)









    Quote from Amakall»

    Hey,
    thanks for the response and I apologize for responding so late. I
    opened the com/xtrablocks and cleaned up, but how do I now put the
    folder back in the .zip ? I asked my personal IT department (14 yr old
    step son), and after trying a couple things he is stumped as well.


    I tried compressing it and renaming it without success. Any help is greatly appreciated.



    Ok, I will try and explain a few simple ways to do it and also eliminate any possible mistake you may make.

    For starters, make sure that you only delete whole folders (not individual blocks from inside the folders). If you want to remove individual blocks, they must be disabled via the config files.

    Next, I will run through two different methods that you can use along with picture to make it easier to understand. (see spoiler below)


    This first method is the easiest way and does not require you to extract or re-compress any files.

    You can do this straight from the mods folder.


    1. Right click the mod file and select open with winrar.


    2. Open the "com" folder.


    3. Open the "xtrablocks" folder.


    4. Select the folders of the modules that you want to remove and then right click and delete.

    You can also remove the corresponding texture folders from the assets file if you want.

    Now you can close the jar file and run the game.



    The second method will require you to extract the files and then repack them.


    1. Create a new folder (anywhere you like) and name it the same as the mods .jar file.


    2. Next, right click the .jar file and select open with winrar. Drag and drop all of the files from the .jar into the new folder that you just created.

    Once this is done, you can close the jar file.


    3. Now open the "com" folder and then the "xtrablocks" folder.



    4. Select the folders of the modules that you want to remove and then right click and delete.


    5. Now, back out to the root directory of the folder that you made and select all of the files. Right click on the highlighted area and select add to archive.


    6. Make sure that you select zip and then press ok.


    7. You should now have a .zip file in your folder. Copy this .zip file into your mods folder and run the game.

    Hopefully this should solve any problems you were having. If not, just let me know and I will try to help you some more. :)

    Hey xeronut, nice to hear from you!
    I've been pretty good thanks. It's been just over a year since my heart attack and I now hit the gym 3-5 days a week.
    Haven't done much with minecraft (or any games really) for a while now, but I always keep an eye on this thread in case someone needs help, or finds a bug. :)

    Hope your keeping well. :)

    Awesome Stuff, but Is it possible to remove some of the Modules ? Im in love with some of the stuff, but all the other Mods are completely unnecessary.

    I tried renaming it .zip, removing the modules I do not need then compressing and renaming .jar again without success. Any help is greatly appreciated.



    You sure can.
    Full instructions can be found on the OP (under "How to disable blocks or remove specific modules:")
    I will also post them below for convenience.

    Rather than renaming the .jar file, you can just right click it and select, "open with winrar". Then you can just delete the unwanted modules.

    How to disable blocks or remove specific modules:


    1. To disable blocks. All you need to do is set the id of the block you
    want to disable to -1 in the config file. As a general rule, only the
    first block of each module can't be disabled (this is to prevent a crash
    as the icon is used for the creative tabs)

    Another thing to note, is that it is not recommended to disable blocks
    in the fences module. To enable torches to be placed on fences, they
    share some code that will cause crashes when one of them is not present.


    2. All of the modules are independent. To remove a module, just open the
    mod .zip then open the folder called "com/xtrablocks" and delete the folder
    of the modules that you don't want. You can then remove the
    corresponding texture folders from the "mods" folder.

    Yay! I got my laptop fixed. Oh what a joy to use the keyboard with all my fingers!


    Anyhoo - I have been making a 4-storey spiral staircase (yes, I AM somewhat obsessed with spiral staircases) ... this one is 16 blocks square and 30 blocks high, and I am building with "Little Blocks" (so more like 128 little blocks across and 240 little blocks high) and XtraBlocks of course.

    Still a lot of work to do. Attached is the work in progress...


    Glad to hear you finally got that sticky keyboard fixed.


    As usual, that staircase looks fantastic.
