What is it?
A program built to make multi layer pixel art using blocks from Minecraft. It incorporates the use of stained glass stacked
on top of other blocks in-game. The result is better blending and more color selections.

About the program
It is my hope that you enjoy this program. I made this program as a proof of concept for creating high quality pixelart. This program provides a few viewing options to help you actually build the art in-game. You can also save to PNG or Schematic format. Most importantly. You can use the double layer mode which combines stained glass panels with newer Minecraft blocks to create an even larger color pallet.

To be honest I have not seen anyone do that yet. I've seen plenty of other memes that were generated by other inferior programs but I have never seen any memes that were planned by pixel stacker yet. You could be the first!

1. File
2. Save (ctrl + s)
3. Select your save type. You can go with schematic for servers version 1.12 and below, or schem for servers 1.13.2 or above.
You then load them onto a server using worldedit. WorldEdit should have a schematics folder. You can search for schematic usage guides online for WorldEdit.

hi, I get an error every time I try to load a schem file with world edit. I can make schem's with the wand tool and paste them willy-nilly. However any schems made by the piselStacker program dont work and cause a failiure message when I try "//schem load schemname



I tried 1.14.2 with WorldEdit and forge of the same version first but it was not working. Thnking it might've been that older version of forge I tried 1.14.4 with 1.14.4 worldedit and forge and still refuses to load schem files. it can list them tho.

Either built it manually, use schematica, or use worldedit and import the schematic. When you save the rendered output it will give you options for different output formats.

Looks like you can
. And if it does not work, let me know and I will adjust the program to make it work with mono.

To be honest I have not tried it. Are you familiar with mono? The program itself is written in C sharp so if you are able to get C sharp to work then you may be able to get the program to work on Mac

Dumb thought:
Isn't this kind off like the old program called SpriteCraft?

I mean this still looks a lot cooler and works way better, but... Isn't it kind of the same? :p

Yes, it is. Spritecraft was a bit of an inspiration for this. I didn't like some of the things that spritecraft was doing and I also needed features that sprotecraft didn't already have. I figured I could do better than what was already there so I built this. So yes. The concept is the same. The program itself is a strong upgrade over its predecessor though. Better features, more features, better color matching algorithm, double layer mode,. It might even be faster. I have not checked though. As someone who likes and enjoys building pixel art, I built this to solve all my annoyances that I have had when trying to build pixel art in my own way. On the server that I like to play on, we easily outperform spritecraft just by doing things manually. The matching algorithms within spritecraft are lacking, and on avg our human eyes better equipped anyways. Speaking with some of the pixel artists on the server, some new techniques started to arrive like double layer pixel art. They also use grid techniques for keeping track of position. I basically built this tool to automate what I would normally do myself.

Have you tried it yet? What do you think of pixelstacker? How does it compare? What is your favorite part? Least favorite part?

When searching for files there should be an option to choose the file type that you're looking for. Switch to jpeg instead of PNG in the program or else download some PNG images. Let me know if this helps.

It has definitely been years. It does work, though sometimes it gets the colors wrong (I'm using fairly big images that have a lot of pixels, so that could be a factor).Aside from that, it works great! I haven't built much with it yet, only a few anime characters.

Have you tried messing with the quantizer settings? Or the list of blocks to use? It works by using average colors of the the blocks, and adds in a preference in the algorithm for similar hues.

:D Thank you for commenting! Yeah, I have been busy. I actually have been working on a lot of things, but a lot of it isn't in a good release state. Also, I never know which items people actually want to use. If people request things be updated, I can always do updates. Takes some knowledge of which things people actually care about though. I also have another plugin for a TRON minigame. Not sure how I'd do a lobby system for it, but it is kind of a nifty little project I have going right now. Not sure if people would be interested either.
