This mod adds stack-able o slabs to the game! :D

There is a corresponding o slab for almost every full block (not partial blocks like slabs) in the game excluding bedrock, furnaces, pistons, dispensers, and droppers.



ysgif


Each o slab is stack-able, and when the 8th o slab is placed, the corresponding block replaces it.


ysmgif


To break an o slab, the tool required to break the corresponding full block must be used. Example: Iron Pick is required to break a slab of Iron Ore

When a slab is broken, the number of o slabs that make up this slab will be dropped.


ytmgif


The crafting recipe for any eight o slabs is as follows:


_____png

You can replace the Block of Iron with a block of your choice to create o slabs of that type. However, the axe MUST be iron. The recipe is shapeless so you can place the iron axe and block of choice anywhere within the crafting grid.


Finally, o slabs inherit features of their corresponding full block. For example, o slabs of Redstone Blocks give off power, o slabs of Sould Sand slow down the player, etc.


_____png


Note, the lighting is very glitchy and not very good if you do not have smooth lighting turned on. To turn on smooth lighting:


1. Pause the game

2. Select the Video Settings option in the Pause GUI

3. Turn the Smooth Lighting option onto Maximum

One suggestion, could you make them more like slabs and less like snow? like to where you can place them upside-down. it would be a great addition!

I see so many mods on the popular reel, and this is probably the best that I've seen yet. You add blocks with obvious functionality. It is so much better than adding unneeded ores to the game. You sir, truly deserve a diamond.

So, did you grap the code from snow to get a start for this mod and then code off of that?

th0mas_87
Level 36
Artisan Modder
April 7, 2013, 7:10 pm

Yup :D All the blocks are instances of the one base class, BlockStackable.class, whose code is mainly derived from the snow classes code with a few major changes. If you really want to know, the constructor for the BlockStackable.class accepts the blockID and the parentBlock and then most of the functions within the BlockStackable class, such as the updateTick function call the parentBlock's updateTick function... Oh, wait... TMI :-/ ;D

Ive done a bit of programming so I think I understand this. XD. I beleave you said you have a Parent Class which all the child classes talk to (Child being all the 1/8 slabs) and then you just had a method in there to do something like check the name of the slab then change its texture.

How did you get past the modloader decompile error? When I recompile my mod, it gives me an error saying the client and server md5s are missing and the server jar is missing.

th0mas_87

April 7, 2013, 4:23 pm

I am not aware of that error. I think you must have decompiled incorrectly..

I decompiled the jar file with modloader installed. When I tried to test it in eclipse it says that minecraft fake launcher applet has failed. So I tried to decompile again, it says I can't do it twice. So I recompiled, it said server jar was missing.

th0mas_87

April 7, 2013, 5:37 pm

So you put the bin and resources folders in the jars folder of mcp? Then you have to put the server jar in it too. Then you decompile. And if you need to restart all you have to do is start off with a fresh mcp

EdMaxPrime

What should I call the server jar? Put it in the bin too?

April 8, 2013, 2:35 pm

Great video on the whole setup process (it's for a lower version of mcp but still works for 1.5) :-) The server jar should be named minecraft_server.jar. The mcp | jars directory should contain the following: the bin and resources folders from %appdata% | .minecraft with ModLoader already installed, the minecraft_server.jar, and the server.properties and server.dat files that are already there

Here's a picture of what's inside the jars folder. After you have the items in the jars folder you run decompile.bat (Windows)

These is very similar to the Redpower Microblocks.

th0mas_87

April 7, 2013, 8:59 am

Yes :-) However, it is much simpler because you can only stack them. In future, I will probably add support for half 1/8 slabs if you get what I mean. So you could start the stack of eighth slabs halfway up a block...

Interesting... It seems as though you took the snow slab code and just added it to every block or something like that. This mod is relatively easy coding.

th0mas_87
Level 36
Artisan Modder
April 6, 2013, 6:22 pm

Yes, I am glad you appreciate the efficiency of the coding :D There were a few things in the coding of the snow slab that I had to take out so I copied most of the code into my own base class, BlockStackable.class, and all the blocks are instances of this class :-)

Willsr71
Level 50
Grandmaster Programmer
April 6, 2013, 6:24 pm

Even more efficient then I thought. I really need to start using Forge though. For reasons like this.

Willsr71

Grandmaster Programmer
April 6, 2013, 7:23 pm

I tried Modloader but I didn't really like it so right now I'm just modding from vanilla MC. In my opinion it is easier, but there are a lot of limitations. Such as dimensions, and more importantly, compatibility. Almost everything is compatible with Forge, and almost nothing is compatible with vanilla MC by itself or if it has a vanilla installation mod.
