SIGNS!!! Sweet sweet signs.
They can be used in so many interesting ways. The glass signs in particular are great for putting together for large seemless futuristic screens. Information walls. Aquariums.
And cleverly using emoji on signs can bring further depth And interest to your builds.
How to Make an Aquarium.
The aquarium is 1 plot deep. Mine is 3 plots wide but can be as long as you want. With 3 layers of Glowing glass Sign modules with emoji fish on random sized signs sections. (1x2, 2x2, 2x3, 1x1, 3x3, whatever.) every layer of glass is 2 blocks behind maybe 3 on the last section. Leaving a row for building the coral and water plants. Added some twinkles here and there as well. Make it look random. Adding “spaces” when typing in the emoji fish code will make them smaller and move them left or right depending on what side of the code you add the spaces. Hitting return will also make them smaller. Each sign section has quite a few characters so try adding schools of fish being sure not to have them directly above or below another fish. And doing schools of fish on a variety of different sign sections allow for a larger variety of fish sizes. Making it all look more realistic.
I hope this makes sense for anyone who’s in dire need for an aquarium.
Also remember the rules of perspective. Thing that are closer appear larger. Thing farther appear smaller.
So adding a few larger fish on the first layer of signs will help with this illusion of depth. And smaller fish on the third layer. Obviously keeping it random because there could be a bigger fish swimming at the back of the tank and vice versa.
Edit: @james @lucadeltodecso I should add there is a bit of a glitch with the glass signs and panes under water where the outer borders are not transparent. I actually made the aquarium one row wider to try and hide it on the side. But it’s clearly visible on the top as well. And it’s completely filled with water.
