New glass blocks!


#1

OMG NEW AND BETTER GLASS BLOCKS I LOVE YOU ALL!!!

You have no idea how much was I waiting for this! I didn’t see that in test server :smiley: So nice surpriseee


#2

OMG sooo much better. YES! I am perfectly happy with them now. Thinner frames and a lighter color makes them perfect glass blocks.


#3

Did I say Yes thank you for the glass blocks yet?

Yes their perfect, and thank you!


#4

Glad you like them.
One thing to note is because the edge’s definition is in the normal map (the colour and specular are more or less 50% grey) they will respond well to the colour of any light source. You can experiment with coloured lighting and should be able to get some nice results.


#5

Oooooh! Even more love!


#6

That wasn’t there in testing so you guys took me by surprise! All the love to the most wonderful dev team ever!!

It was in testing :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I do like the glass texture, but something about it feels unfinished… The texture before had great detail, and now I feel like the glass is a bit bland.
I’m not particularly sure how you would fix this either, as adding wooden frames would make them more noticeable.
Does anyone else share my opinion? Or am I alone on this one :joy:
Edit: if this is the case, then awesome:


#8

I would have noticed if it was in testing, my build has glass all over the place :stuck_out_tongue:


#9

It for sure was :joy: it is in the notes:

thats so weird!!


#11

It landed on testing just a few days before this release


#12

maybe thats it then, I was on testing first couple of days only


#13

I think glass would be perfect with no frame and just reflections.

Oh and can chisel glass with skill


#14

agree, but they said their software can’t render it that way. I am happy with this one though. It holds light effects, and the grey doesn’t stand out very much and blends right in at a distance, so our glass wall,looks like a glass wall.


#15

Im satisfied


#16

Glass feels unfinished to me. I appreciate that the new glass basically satisfied all of the previous demands within what is possible with the engine, but it does it in the most… boring (?) way possible.

I know I’m being picky here, but I would love to see some creative decorative glass patterns like we see with the new decorative wood patterns. I would even be satisfied with more opaque “glass” window blocks with color and reflective surfaces like the gleam lanterns but more refined and non-luminous, like a stained glass window.


#17

I still think the frame could be worked on to be more interesting in the main texture, but I don’t think this is the last iteration anyway :grin:


#18

I haven’t been able to jump on and check out the new update yet, could somebody post a pic of the new look? Please? :sweat_smile:


#19

The new look is SO much better.

I don’t know, new glass kinda falls out of the general style. Can’t say that i loved old one, but new looks like double-glazed windows. From the distance it looks like empty carcass, I would not even have thought that this is glass, if I didn’t know in advance. I hope we get a better model, or though a few different ones to choose from.
