How does this compare to Siba's Float Cubes?

It is an interesting question, but sadly I got a boring answer.

Only the one owning the bricks can give the bricks away. You cannot "steal" bricks from someone else. So it's a one-way transfer, but the one receiving it can transfer it back. I may rephrase that in the post.
What is the trust situation of player B is a Super Admin?

Build trust between the one handling it, the one owning the bricks and the one you're giving it to.
Ooh interesting, I didn't think of that. Say player B wants to transfer bricks from player A to player C.
  • Obviously A and C need to trust each other to transfer bricks between the two.
  • A and B need to trust each other so B can hit A's bricks with the wand.
  • Does B need to trust C?

Too early, but good.
Not in my opinion. If you're working on a larger christmas themed server, you should already be building it.

However you should trim the automatic color generation too.

Indeed. I'm starting to think that 6 decimal places is good enough for everything and just rounding all the values.

Alright this clarifies things. If I want to specify multiple collision boxes, would i do like, COLLISION0 and COLLISION1 etc?
Nope. You definitely do not want to do that because collision1 is not a valid token. See Definition Tokens for details on how to use them. COLLISION 1 and COLLISION 2 would be valid ways to define collision objects but the preferred method is to simply the name the object "collision" and duplicate it. Blender will add the index (e.g. "collision.003") to the end but that is automatically removed. Although you've given me an idea to improve this system for greater legacy support, thanks!

Also, i've tried naming a top texture to 'TOP' and for some reason when I add it in-game the top print is actually a SIDE texture. Does this have to do with the naming, rotation, or maybe do I need to UV map it properly?
That is certainly odd. If the material name is "top" (case insensitive) it should use the top brick texture on the assigned faces. I've just tested this and it certainly does not work, I must have broken it at some point. Regardless this doesn't really matter yet because using brick textures doesn't really help because the UVs are not calculated so you couldn't see the texture anyway. I'm currently working on the UV calculation.

Awesome!

Do you think you could show us a picture of how to set up hierarchy properly for exporting Multiple Bricks by Group?
I'm assuming that it goes like Group1 > BOUNDS0, COLLISION0, MESH0       Group2 > BOUNDS1, COLLISION1, MESH1
There is no hierarchy anywhere. Each group is a new brick and can contain whatever just like with single brick export. One object can be in multiple groups if you so wish which is useful for doors, for example, where the size of the brick should not change between the open and closed states.

maybe instead of using material colors, use the material name alongside its color?
The material name, if it is one of the valid brick texture names (BOTTOMEDGE, BOTTOMLOOP, RAMP, SIDE, TOP), is used. Otherwise it is ignored. (Unless it contains "blank", see the readme.) As I'm typing this I realize that I have forgotten "PRINT".

The BOUNDS box determines the exact size of the brick. a brick's mesh can extend outside of the BOUNDS box - the COLLISION cannot (well it can but it will be glitchy)
This is correct. The bottom face of the bounds object is the bottom plane or "ground" of the brick.

I'm not a networking guy so I don't really know how these things work but in your situation I would remove the libminiupnpc rule and see if that changes anything because I think it might conflict with the PF1 rule.

Version 1.1.0 released

Download Latest Version Full Change Log & Update Instructions

Minor tweaks and fixes, added support for additive and subtractive coloring with materials and vertex colors. Readme is now prettier with a table of contents and internal linking.

You should have the port range 28000-28030 open on both TCP and UDP protocols. Also post a picture of your forwarded ports in your router settings.
41  Off Topic / Off Topic / Re: How do I port foward Blockland with these settings? on: November 13, 2016, 06:30:05 AM
You need two rules: one for TCP, another for UDP. Port range is from 28000 to 28030. Leave host port blank if you can, if not, put in 28000

uhhh

like, a ton of bricks? take a look at my camera brick for example (its on blg). note how the base recolors to a shade of the brick color.

leetzero's guide to brick making explains how the naming system for colors works. google leetlegacy brickmaking for a link. some pictures at the bottom of the guide also show bricks with shading
Sorry, you're absolutely right. I just completely forgot that was a thing even though I've extensively used it in the past. I will be updating the add-on soon™.

Additive colors:
  • Object colors: gray color and negative alpha.
  • Material colors: You can't specify a negative alpha in the Blender UI so I will have add in a feature for this.
  • Vertex colors: gray color and negative alpha in the layer name.

Subtractive colors:
  • Object colors: negative gray color and negative alpha.
  • Material colors: You can't specify negative values for colors in the Blender UI so I will have add in a feature for this.
  • Vertex colors: You can't specify negative values for colors in the Blender UI so I will have add in a feature for this.

@perry you cant tint the sprayed color with a different color though. just tint it darker or lighter
Actually you can by using a non-gray color and negative alpha. For example a red color with negative alpha colored blue in-game produces violet. Or a yellow color where the red component is negative with negative alpha is actually green in-game, except when colored white or blue it turns cyan. There's probably a way to figure out what combinations produce what colors but I honestly don't see how this is helpful. I guess it technically allows the user to define two colors for a brick with a single spray can color.

Sure, it is. But he's only using this to advertise his Blender BL Exporter. It's a really nice example of how advanced it really is.
That's only half of the reason. The brick has uses in a Japanese themed build.
44  Blockland Forums / Modification Help / Re: Blender BLB Exporter [v1.0.0] on: November 12, 2016, 02:18:32 PM
thanks this worked.

Another question I have: are additive/subtractive colors supported? I want to color the brick in a certain way so that when you spray it it will take on the color that i sprayed but darker.
BLBs do not support such a feature as far as I know. If they do, please give me a link to a brick that does it.

Candy Canes

Three flavors of candy cane with a liberal brick grid: one plate at the bottom, another at the end of the hook. Candy Cane B and Candy Cane C (the two on the right) weigh in at around 150 quads so don't go too wild with them.

Features
  • Brick icons.
  • Accurate collision.
  • Minimal coverage due to the shape of the brick, only bottom quads are hidden when covered.
  • Support_Updater versioning.


This is a sample brick for Blender BLB Exporter.

The BLB files were exported using the BLB exporter by doing the following:
  • In the export dialog, using the following properties (deviating from defaults):
    • Bricks to Export: Multiple
    • Brick Names From: Groups
    • Export Bricks In: Scene
    • Coverage: Self Bottom
    • Automatic Quad Sorting

Additionally the Blender file includes the camera, light, and material used for rendering special brick icons that closely match the default Blockland style. Icon is to be rendered without anti-aliasing. Post-processing is required to scale the icon to the correct resolution using bilinear interpolation.



Demian's Snowmen

A regular snowman and two sexy snowmen I made for someone a long time ago but never posted on the forums. But now that Christmas is coming I suppose they have some decorative or indecent uses. Only the red bits in the scarf are colorable. They have about 350 quads each so use sparingly.

Features
  • Brick icons.
  • Reasonably accurate collision.
  • Minimal brick grid.
  • No coverage.
  • Support_Updater versioning.

To the ~18 people who have downloaded the old Demian's Christmas Bricks: these two add-ons replace that.
