You've seen those instant buildings mods, right click the block and it generates a structure. I've always thought that they could be so much more better. Well I've decided to try my take on it and create something that is completely unique from the rest. Today I introduce to you my Construction Mod! How is this unique from the others? I will eleborate.

In this mod, there are 4 main items/blocks which are involved of the creation of a structure.

The Blueprint
A Blueprint is the key to making any structure as it holds the plans on it. I decided this would be a great thing to implement as I wanted to get that real life feel of when constructing a building. The Blueprint can hold any plans you want. (Read Custom Buildings).

Planning Table
You can can't fly a plane without training, same with building, you can't build a structure without a plan. This is where the Planning Table comes in. The Planning Table draws the designs onto the Blueprint at the cost of a certain amount of Ink. The bigger the structure, the more Ink that is required.

Construction Block
I needed a way to translate the plans from the Blueprint to tell me the materials needed. The Construction Block can do that. It will display every required block/item needed to generate the structure. Once you have them, you can proceed to construct your building by placing the required blocks/items into the slots provided. Press the start button to begin the construction process.

The Hammer
This is where I have been inspired from Age of Empires (A.O.E.). Once you have the required materials placed into the Construction Block and you have pressed the Start button, you will need to get a Hammer. You begin the construction process by hitting the Hammer on the Construction Block. Now this is where it gets very unique! Every 10 hits on the Construction Block, it will generate 1 layer starting from the bottom until you get to the top. I really liked this idea and it really sets it apart from every
instant/construction mods out there.

Sorry for my mini essay but I wanted to tell you guys why this isn't your typical instant building mod. If you read this, thank you Posted Image +1 me.

Do you ever plan on implementing this into 1.10 or 1.11? If not would it be possible to transfer ownership? I am constructing a "one size fits all" mod and think this would be perfect with it, I really love your work with all your mods, this one in particular, and I hope to see it updated someday!

This mod looks really cool and I love your other mods as well! Although I can't get mod because it's not 1.8. If you are able to make it for 1.8, please do. I am aware it takes time to make mods, but if you can, please make it for 1.8
