    UPDATE: This modpack now requires the Universal Dye Pack in order to function! Please go download it from here before continuing!

    Hello Everyone!

    Before I get started, I do want a simple disclaimer to be stated: This is my first released mod, so forgive me for lack of content or function.

    Anyway, I bring to you Dyes! 7 more than the two you can obtain normally! Along with the new dyes comes 5 new vanity sets and (among) the first released Stained Glass Blocks and Stained Glass Walls!

    This pack gives you over 50 new items in game and is a great addition to those wanting a bit more graphical flair out of their world. I've now included images for all the Items in this pack. And I've included some of Lawura's Builder Pack into my own (as there's been quite a few requests for it). Check under the Items box to see more.

    We are now including Phlebas' Security kit! Check within for more info!

    OOOH! New toys! (open)

    Colorific! (open)

    All new Dyes are crafted the same way as the already existing Green Dye is crafted, at an Alchemy station/Bottle on a Table.

    And here's a bit of photographic examples. Mind you I was running off very little dyes at the time (I had yet to build my herb garden).
    First at Night:
    And during the Day:
    The word Color and the mouth of the face is made of Red Glass Wall
    The Left Eye is Brown Glass Wall, right eye is Green Glass wall.
    The letters in glass are White, Orange, Yellow, Blue and Purple Glass Walls respectfully.
    If you want to see footage of the clear glass walls and their one bug, please watch my playlist on youtube!

    Just showing off the new Clear Glass tiles with some stylistic non-existent tiles to make it look like a nice pattern.

    • A use for the new dye colors!
    • Banners and Pennants on the way.

    Well, What do you think? I hope it's up to standards set by modders that came before me and hopefully a good template for future modders!

    As I have recently been asked about the quantity of dye to glass ratio, I have come to a rather simple solution: To show how I farm for the seeds needed to make my dyes.
    Gardening Tips (open)

    What would work best can be half the size of what is pictured below, but I like to have lots of plants. This set up also allows me to have a bunny farm above powered by a crab engine for harvesting money from the bunnies, and Deathweed on the top row during blood moons.
    I also use a torch in between to separate the pots and illuminate it at night.
    From top to bottom is as follows:
    • Deathweed
    • Daybloom
    • Moonglow
    • Waterleaf
    • Blinkroot
    • Fireblossom
    The reason for two chests is rather simple. one chest for the herb itself, the other for seeds. This one station is designed to grow every herb for potions, as well as stock up seeds for maintaining the garden. The benefit of this system is that the seeds from these plants will allow you to craft the dyes provided by this kit (explained in full above).

    Also, tips for getting the right water/lava level. When you plant the waterleaf and fireblossom seeds, they'll grow but will not blossom unless they are sufficiently submerged in water/lava respectfully to the right degree. You'll need at least two to three pixels minimum above the clay pot in order to achieve your goal of perpetual plants.
    I do hope that this will be enough info to help would-be dye-makers happy. Chemists and Dyers alike love a good garden!

    I want to thank a few people for helping me get this far:
    Surfpup - for making tConfig!
    Yorai - Various moments of helpfulness in this and other mods.
    Axe Garian - Beta testing and motivation
    Lawura - For creating a modpack and vanishing so the demand was high for it to be included in my pack.
    Phlebas - For letting me use his Security pack within my own pack.
    Jedi Pwnces - For discovering that the 'placeOn' attribute of Tiles caused the handrails (and subsequently all the tiles) to not work properly.
    Any and all users who use this pack - for letting me know how much you enjoy this modpack and poking at me when I slack off on updating it to the new tConfig versions!

    Marble Pillar Notes: (Taken from Lawura's Builder Pack Page on Surfpup's tConfig Wiki)
    Read me for Marble help! (open)

    Pillar notice
    The pillars may be a little hard to work with and in times buggy. I will be working of fixing the tiles where I can, when I confront a major problem, but in general its complicity limits the possibilities.
    The pillars are designed to act as pillars only. If you manage to build something else with them, I raise my hat before you.

    Pillar "How to"
    First of all for a pillar you will need a back wall. You may remove the wall after you have build the pillars, that will not affect the construction.
    Secondly, for correct tile collision use marble blocks around your pillars (at bottom and top).

    For a simple pillar, that does not have any decorations (as on the picture to the left in the title) Just place the background wall and the pillar tiles one above another. Remove the back wall if so needed. You are done.

    For the pillar as on picture in the middle. Build the back wall. Build your pillar (no matther what width, just keep in mind that the thicker the pillar the more noticable there will be the flaw of the decorations on the bottom and top. add one block of the pillar to right and left of the bottom and top of your pillar. You are done. Remove the backwall if needed.

    For the pillar on the right

    (1) you will need to make two layers of marble below and above your column so they go at lest one tile to left and right from the column.
    (2) Build the backwall.
    (3) Build the wanted thickness of your column.
    (4)Add one tile to left and right at the top and the bottom of your pillar (just like in the case 2). You will get a pillar that looks just like the one on the middle picture.
    (5)Now the tricky part comes. The last blocks of pillar you added. Assuming you have 2 layer thick marble under it, remove one block of marble under and above accordingly for each lastly placed block.
    (6) In the opened niches place the pillar blocks. Your column decorations shall now look like on the picture to the right in the title.

    I haven't tested the mod out(downloading it now), but I love the ideas. I've been working on my own vanity item mod for awhile now. One good thing you could do to improve popularity of your mod is post a few screenshots of the items/tiles.
  3. Lycos_Hayes Eskimo Zombie

    yeah, I was thinking of doing that, just contemplating on where to host them.

    Man, I gotta say. tconfig is the greatest thing to happen to this game. As a standalone mod, I wouldn't have considered this, because while I do enjoy having more than just stone and wood readily avaliable to build with, the other mods have so much more to offer. But since I can mix and match, this has quickly elevated to be one mod I shall never live without. Good show!

    Now, I'm back off to make my rooms look awesome.

  7. Lycos_Hayes Eskimo Zombie

    Well, I am open for requests to have more features, I'm just not advanced enough to say, create new mobs or anything like that, although it would be interesting if I generated an item that can spawn a new invasion type. I still got work to do to get up to speed with what I personally am able to do and can't do just yet. I had to ask the community to figure out multi-spawning from a destroyed "clothed" mannequin (which I am ETERNALLY grateful to Yoraiz0r who helped me with the code.)

    Any ideas of what to add to this? I'm still contemplating how to effectively make Black glass without it looking tacky.

  8. Yoraiz0r The Wizard

    Colored BrightBlocks , should be a solid block , alike to the timers , and toggle-able by wires.
    The light level should be a bit brighter then the torch's , I assume that is possible due to the existence of 'addlight' method provided by one of the latest tConfig updates.
    Another nice idea , for a vanity-based mode , would be colored beds , although done in the past at cMod , a re-come of that would be very nice.
    If further ideas for vanity-themed items are required , Add new types of streetlamps , or material platforms (for them classy stairs! , wood is a bit dull in the end =P)
  9. Surfpup Arapaima

    Lawura's mod pack from forever ago adds a bunch of new furniture-like stuff and platforms. I thought about updating it, but I've got other stuff to work on.

  10. Lycos_Hayes Eskimo Zombie

    I was thinking of getting some of the content from her modpack when I saw it and updating it to work with the newer versions, maybe incorporate into my pack and upgrade it to Visual Flair pack :p (All credit given of course)

    I didn't mean to say the mod needed work. This mod does exactly what it sets out to do and does it well, what I meant to say is in the old days we could only have one going at a time, and in those days, I'd have overlooked a cosmetics mod like this.
  12. Lycos_Hayes Eskimo Zombie

    Quick question guys. I have made colored beds (coming in the next update, more info when updated) but I am having a bit of a confusion on how to properly execute the ChangeSpawn (from Player Class) I guess I'm just a bit inadequate in my CS file coding, C# wasn't a strong suit of mine. I just want to know if what I need still in the code below so that it will work on right click. (like a regular bed). (honestly this is more complex than the clothed mannequins x.x)
    public void UseTile(Player player, int x, int y)
    public void ChangeSpawn(int x, int y)

    Great job! I wish more people would make cool mods, not just giant bombs and world viewers.
    Axe Garian likes this.
  14. Yoraiz0r The Wizard

    do this
    public void UseTile(Player player,int x , int y)
    the method ChangeSpawn is in the player class , and is one of its methods.
  15. Lycos_Hayes Eskimo Zombie

    Well, I tried that and for some unknown reason the tile just won't react like I want it to. >.<' I even did a bit of changing things around to see if the spacing is an issue but that didn't seem to affect it either . Hm... I'll just have to keep trying to get it to work. On another note, I gotta figure out code for making the bed turn based on player direction, but I think I can manage that.

    May I request that the adamantite forge-only thing be fixed asap? I started a new world, only to discover we have to wait until endgame to use this stuff.
  19. Lycos_Hayes Eskimo Zombie

    For some unknown reason, custom items can only be made at one level of forge, and most people upgrade as they go, I think I'll make a middle ground as people often end up having stacks of Hellforges. It doesn't make it immediately available, but it'll make it rather easily obtainable. How's that?

    Edit: And the pack's updated, with new items! ^^
    Axe Garian likes this.
  20. General_Milky Pigron

    I don't know. If that's the case, then it makes sense to balance it based on what they are. May as well just put the cosmetic blocks on the regular ole furnace and make people deal with keeping one around, especially since compromising on a hellforge means those who throw out the old stations don't benefit, and those who want to start making a red greenhouse for their budding farm both don't get anything out of it.

    EDIT: Just looked at new items. Scanner seems waaaaayyyy too useful for what it costs. May I suggest adding something else to its recipe, maybe a black lens or something?
