Here is a list of all the block colours on every world:

https://boundless-web.herokuapp.com/colours/
(I know, such a memorable URL :roll_eyes: )

NB: Just because a world has colour data for a certain block (i.e Gleam), doesn’t mean that gleam can be found on that world


#2

Is this just a harder to read version than the spreadsheet?

Maybe you can both make sure it stays up to date? Though I can’t for the life of me remember who’s it is :frowning:

EDIT: Sorry, been a bit rude, you’ve done a damned nice job. It would just be a shame if you were unaware of the spreadsheet!


#3

I was unaware of that spreadsheet :joy: until it was shown to me a few minutes ago, but oh well


#4

I’d be interested in how you extracted the full list :+1: (cache? The API?)

The spreadsheet has been mostly manual (good for knowing which are obtainable, sometimes bad for accuracy)


#5

Websockets! The game passes a big JSON with world data through the websocket connection when a world is loaded, with the block colours in there. Idk how to recreate those requests, so I just travelled to all the worlds :joy:


#6

Oh, lawl. Charles Proxy or similar to intercept?


#7

Burp Suite :ok_hand:


#8

Might be neat to integrate this into the spreadsheet - that way @Okkelinor would just have to say “:+1: found this type of item on world X” and the color can be shown


#9

Should hopefully be significantly more readable now, still want to get some other features in too like searching for a block or a colour.


#10

OK! Just updated the site so that you can now list worlds, items/blocks, or colours.
Clicking on those will list the relevant information, and you can search!
Hopefully this means it will be more useful, and when I get around to it I’ll add the hex colours!
:slight_smile:
Edit: looks like there are definitely some issues here and there :thinking:
Edit: sorted!


#11

You’re the real MVP.


#12

(Added actual colours to the site, may have increased load times a bit, though)



Edit: turns out I was a little stingy on that colour filter, 200 colours are used, not just 34!.. at least, I hope i’m right this time :joy: Now the site should be fixed and say 200 anyways


#13

You both should just work together and we get a great reference for all :slight_smile:

Btw. could you add maybe a flag that we can set, if the item you are listing is really spawning at this planet?
So we can set a filter of just real finds and not all related reserved items for that worlds?


#14

The issue with that is that it would require someone to verify whether they are there manually, there is no way to automatically do that, I guess unless I check whether it is on @Okkelinor’s sheet


#15

Yes, that i mean, work together with Okkelinor.
And maybe a kind of report function on the page if someone find a false flag or has an update for you :slight_smile:


#16

Fixed a bug when filtering by colour where if multiple blocks on the same world had the same colour, only one would be shown.
Thanks for alerting me to it @Aanika!


#17

Updated for the 6 new worlds :slight_smile:
If anyone fancies exploring, if there is gleam on Houchus it will be white!
EDIT: yep I can confirm theres white gleam now!

@willcrutchley first of all thank you for making this, I use it multiple times every day.

I wanted to report a bug I’m seeing.

To reproduce:

  1. Load the app fresh
  2. Bring up the filter UI
  3. Quickly click the right arrow twice

Expected result: only the most recent filter result set is displayed (colors)

Actual result: both items and colors result sets are displayed.

The workaround is to slowly click right, wait for the results to load, then click right again.
