Long time no updates from me, but don’t worry - I’ve been busy.

I thought I’d give you all a little preview of what I’ve been doing for the past few weeks. I’ve been making new doors! The doors currently in the game are some of the oldest assets we have, they’re not tintable, and they don’t quite fit with the look of everything else anymore. So, we’re making some new ones. Lots of new ones.

@Minyi drew up the set of excellent concepts that I’ve been using:

As you can see, you’ll be able to craft doors from wood, stone, metal and gleam - all of them will take their primary tint from the colour of the material you use, of course, and not only that but you’ll have three different choices of design per material type! They’ll work just like the current doors so you can make little one-block doors or much taller ones(the middle 1/3rd tiles!) and of course double doors.

So far, I’ve just today finished up work on the Wood and Stone doors. They’re not ready to go live yet - I can’t say when that will be, but I have to make all the metal and gleam ones first so it’ll be a little while longer :stuck_out_tongue: - but here’s a preview:

I love how you can see through parts of the door.

Hooray, Friday morning goodies. Both the concept art and in game assets look great! Much closer to the theme. Great work.

Curious, how will a player affect which style they make?

The details are down to the designers but I believe each design will be a different recipe.

Will there be a limit for the height of the doors? It looks like you can build them 1, 2 or 3 blocks high. The current doors can be higher I believe.

Looks great! Can’t wait!

Wow these all look great! Can’t wait to see how we can fit them into our builds

These doors can be as high as the current doors - the central part of each tiles upwards as high as it needs to go.

I still want redstone-like doors. These are nice, but I kind of want to make myself a large mechanical block moving vault gate.

Careful now. With doors that look this good, you might destabilize the economy as every player ends up using nothing but doors in their builds…

(I certainly plan to be part of that problem!)

i was paying so much attention to the door that I just noticed that sweet totem.

Nice concepts and models. I have to say I’m not as much of a fan of the more colorful doors, but most of the other ones look great! Adding these to the Dev Art archive now.

I do hope they’re a bit thinner than the current doorway blocking bulkheads we currently have :wink:
I’d much rather have a single door doorway, but squeezing through sideways (feels like that) is a pain.
