Burnt Glass/Blockland Aero UI mod
History
The whole project started somewhere in 2009, out of pure boredom. I had a stuffty computer, a stuffty router and sluggish internet. At the same time I discovered that you could edit the bitmaps Blockland uses for it's GUI design, and so Blockland Aero was born.
Blockland Aero v1
This was my first release, only containing window borders, tabs and buttons. It's not exactly well-made, but I still think it's good being my first attempt.

Custom main menu title not included.
Blockland Aero v2
My second attempt was a lot better. More appealing design, better quality, more extensive editing.

Burnt Glass
My latest and best UI edit. This actually started as a skin for the program SmoothText, wich does font smoothing and element skinning for Windows NT4/2000, and was later ported to Blockland Retail. It features a (almost) full edit, including brick selector bitmaps and tool menu background.

This is infact very nice.

Are we allowed to edit them and release them in particulary?
