Former iron door texture


Hardcore MCME-er
I was going through Minas Moriah today, for the first time in a while, and discovered all the camouflage iron doors had been removed or occasionally replaced with paintings. Needless to say, the secrecy and hidden-ness of the connections within Minas Moriah were a fundamental part of its character and what made learning the path through a challenge (and accomplishment). Furthermore, the paintings really do stick out in some cases. I then realized this was because iron door are no longer textured as stone bricks. However, many of the doors do not currently have textures for both the powered and unpowered states. Would it be possible to give this texture to one of the unpowered wooden doors, so we can restore Minas Moriah to its former glory?

Blocker interaction with all unpowered doors during the custom block update. Iron doors were supposed to be replaced with animation plugin using half doors. But ye, it turned out to be a bad idea. There are many more iron doors than expected and people are too lazy to make the animations. We'll probably be able to bring back iron doors after 1.13 update.
