If you could add one block what would it be... Get your block idea into my mod!

    an isomorphic tool that can be used like any wrench or tool in the game, but will not work on wood.

    It's a [Irony] little complex [/irony], but i would be happy if you would add a crafting table with the Function to auto-craft missing components.
    Also if i want to craft a diamond pickaxe and lay the 3 diamonds in, then it will guess the recipe and then i would if you press a button auto-craft the missing items (in this case sticks).
    It will take Items from your Inventory.But it will only auto-craft the missing items of the diamond pick, but if don't have planks in your inventory, but wood, then it will NOT autocraft.Also it will not autocraft the missing items of the missing item of the diamond pick.Understood?
    In short: A crafting table, that will auto-craft items until a layer.

    Do you mean it could rotate vanilla blocks? I think Gany did something similar.


    This sounds awesome, but way to advanced for me at the moment. You best bet for something like this is an ae system with lots of Autocrafting patterns to use. I could eventually do this but after I have learned more.

    Eh, Its a DoƧtor Who easter egg. by sonic screwdriver, I mean can funtion as a wrench for any mod, wand, and vanilla tools, but cant cut wood or move barrels. completly overpowered, but fantastic.

    I added this mod before into an old 1.6 mod, but it is always a great idea that no one seems to think is a good idea. The block is so imaginatively called the drop light. I'm sure you can guess what it does...
    That's right. It is essentially glowstone that is affected by gravity.
    Really simple, but a god send in ravines that don't have lava in them. Just drop the block, and it will fall to the bottom, and light up the area where it lands :)

    Basically a table that scans the available inventory, and provides a list of the resulting craftables- with the option of using the crafting grid as a 'search' function to list only recipes with X item in Y position?

    The shine looks a little weird as it doesn't tile properly.
    Try changing lapis or diamond to grayscale and see if it fits.

    While not what you originally envisioned, the mod could be called RiseAgainMod (RAM). Sounds more awesome and is a play off your name.

    I'd like a block made from mob drops that can spawn drops from said mobs (by dropping them into the world). Should be expensive for ones that dont take forever to produce a drop, so it is upgradable. Also keeps with RiseAgainMod "theme" in my mind. Could also upgrade down different paths if you want to introduce mod relationships with machine mods like TE3 and IC2 so they require power and can pipe items. Block would appear with a face of the mob (in agony?). Would be great for increasing server performance against sloppily designed mob grinder and more compact too. I'd suggest having config options to add in modded drops unless you can hook somehow.

    If I could add one block, I'd add vertical slabs because microblocks are buggy for me, cloud NEI with parts I'll never use, and I just dont like them.

    Early game is tedious for a few reasons. Slow movement for one. If you could make a cheap set of boots that gives a speed boost, that'd be great. Also, something that stops rain. Theres a couple anti rain items out there already but expensive.

    No! Must make better drop lamp... :) You are satanic arent you? :)


    Leather slippers of speed or something? :) Sounds good to me. Ill get on this as well. As to rain, do you mean stopping it entirely? I was thinking about something along the lines of that and a day night changer for end game, but they may have to disabled on servers... idk


    This sounds good as well. Im going to look into the code and see what I can do. I never really thought about it before but is there any existing modded block that randomly drops items? I cant think of any...
    Im still working on dat texture. :p[DOUBLEPOST=1412217286][/DOUBLEPOST]

    Ill see what I can do for vanilla blocks, but forge micro blocks would be way better for mod compatibility either way.

    I've always wanted a block that would just rise up when you place it down and if you are standing on it then pressing shift it will stop moving. This would make building sky castles easier than if you used an angel block.

    A grill. Have had several ideas for this. Don't even attempt to begin to comprehend why I have thought this indepth about grilling in minecraft though. Associated items such as different types of woods, possibly a kiln to make drywood for wood that changes the output of food cooked by the grill with that wood or charcoal of that wood etc etc. Associated food types as well.

    Grill types:

    First: Obviously just a basic block, maybe some netherrack and a flint and steel in the recipes with cobble/bricks/w.e

    Second type: Multiblock. GUI-less for putting food in but perhaps a block in the back for a place to add in the fuel? http://i.imgur.com/3klG7nk.png The iron bars are a bit wonky since they'd need to lay flat like a grill but yea.


    Final type: Well since you said you want to build up to the cofh api... Why not an electric grill? :3 Not much in the way of ideas on that one.

    Anyway thought this might be fun and a good few things to learn coding wise.

    Like a frame block that moves upward constantly? I might be able to do this at some point.

    Actually this sounds pretty cool. I needs to learn multiblocks anyways. Maybe the food could have metadata associated with type of wood was used/what type of grill. Steak, Flame Grilled, Acacia smoked. lolz I like it already. Also I am going to attempt to learn guis, just for the moment it is a tad over my head. By the time I get to generators I should have them down pat.

    Edit-
    I believe I just found the way to make the wither not destroy my blocks. One of them is glass, so now we will all be able to capture the wither for all to see and mock him in shame of confinement! :p No more pitch black blocks. (Sorry Tema XU is awesome)

    Yeah, basically something that is lighter than air but a solid block that you can stand on.
