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.

Best regards - Noby_Diver

MightyPork, this has been by far, the most useful mod I've used. Now I don't need to write the exact specifications of buildings I see in multiplayer; I can just copy-paste! It would be a huge favor for you to update it to 1.0.0.
