Building Plans
This mod should let you capture some area to get a plan, and then rebuild the structure from the plan.

-> 1.8.1 Download!

Warning: It's buggy!
This mod can safely store and rebuild ordinary blocks. Does have troubles with furnaces, dispensers, torches, ladders etc.

How to use it:

  1. Right click an upper corner of a captured rectangular area with STICK.
  2. Right click the block under the opposite bottom corner with a stick while holding one numpad number. Each number represents one slot.
  3. To rebuild it, hold numpad ZERO and a NUMBER and right click the surface in front of you.

What this mod can do:
  • save and rebuild all blocks (with some problems, specified below).
  • save furnace, chest and dispenser contents and then rebuild them with the same contents
  • save and rebuild liquids
  • save and rebuild wool and preserve it's colour
  • you can't rebuild adminium and build above the top map layer

Known bugs
  • When rebuilding furnaces, torches, dispensers,doors,tracks and other blocks with specific orientation, this orientation may be changed randomly.
  • It will erase signs

Plan sharing
You can share your plans among all your worlds, and the capturing should work even in multiplayer.
  • All plans are saved in .minecraft/mods/scanner/scans folder
  • File slots.cfg contains information about the currently available plans (using numbers)
  • File keys.cfg specifies your action keys.
Give your plan to others
  • open slots.cfg
  • remember the number in the slot you want to share
  • find a file with this name (number) in the scans folder.
  • this is the file to share
Use plans from the others
  • save the downloaded file into scans folder
  • open slots.cfg
  • change one slot to contain the file's name
  • remember the slot number to use your new plan in-game.

This mod requires modloader.
Place the zip into /mods.


Modders, read here:
I am looking for some good modder who will finish it, because I spent 3 whole days getting it to work, and still I am unable to fix the rotation bug.
  • If you are interested, ask me for the sources.
  • It is not the java knowledge I am missing. It means a lot of thinking and planning to code it right. And I really can't do more.
  • If you finish it, I will give you the privilege to post it as yours with just crediting me.

Hi MightyPork

Many, many thanks to you for your great mods you programming. I know you don't like to update this mod (Building Plans) but i still hope that you update this mod for 1.0.0. You say it's still buggy - but never mind - this mod is absolutly great.

And I can't figure out how to capture an area because i can't understand what you mean by how to capture an area can you tell me how to capture an area in different words or make a youtube tutorial?

  • Open the windows "Run" prompt and enter %APPDATA%, then navigate to the .minecraft folder

  • Take a backup copy of your minecraft directory

  • Download & install modloader

    it means: open your minecraft.jar with winrar, open the modloader zip with winrar, drag'n'dropm all the items from modloader into minecraft.jar.
  • Delete the META-INF folder in minecraft.jar, otherwise you'll get a black screen.
  • Run Minecraft. If it still works, it is ok. If not, you screwed something up.
  • Now use the install guides in the descriptions of mods you wanna install.

UPGRADED!

The rotation bug persists, but I improved the saving engine:

it can now capture up to 3844 different blocks (pairs of block id and it's direction/colour/whatever).

This means that you can capture enormous cacti farms, large mob spawners with flowing water, and since the limit is 1024 blocks, you could theoretically capture the whole area of a map item.

I released a new version, which won't have troubles with water and cacti; maybe you will like it. I tried to move my house from one world to another, and it worked almost perfectly (except torches, signs and furnaces, of course)

MightyPork
Level 88
Elite Modder
July 17, 2011, 8:03 am

Yep, that is exactly what this mod was made for.

just be careful, because if you copy a building with furnaces, doors and torches, these things may be strangely rotated when you rebuild it in the second world. It will be fixed in the future, hopefully. However, all ordinary blocks like stone, wood, glass, chest et c. will be copied properly, and chests will even preserve their contents.

and one more thing: if you select the starting (upper) block, then you have to select as the second block the block UNDER the opposite bottom corner.

This strange behaviour is because some guys want to copy their house by clicking on the yard in front of it, and then they were surprised when they rebuild the yard as well.
