  • All upper slabs: New placeholder is the Iron trapdoor closed top half north. Less optimal, but I need the upper netherbrick slab for the roof tiles.
    Remains, I will only use the lower netherbrick slab as roof tile, the respective upper slab which is rarely used remains an itemblock.
  • All inverted and corner stairs of red and brown shingles: New placeholder is the cactus stage15, not a lot different; I need the netherbrick stairs for the dark thatch.
  • All curtains: New placeholder is the open powered Acacia fence gate rather than the closed one, which will make them walk-through which is especially nice in crammed rooms.
  • All clotheslines: New placeholder is the open powered Acacia fence gate rather than the closed one, which will make them walk-through.
  • The candle plates on Unpowered repeater delay1 facing north/south/east/west will be merged into one blockstate on Unpowered repeater delay1 facing north. Orientation will be randomized
  • Forest floors, cloth and leather mat moved to unpowered repeater delay1 south/west/east and delay2 south/west
  • Straight white bricks wall piece moved and reduced from eight blockstates on unpowered jungle fence gate to two blockstates on unpowered closed acacia fence gate, north and east.
  • Straight light gray bricks wall piece moved and reduced from eight blockstates on unpowered spruce fence gate to two blockstaes on unpowered closed acacia fence gate, south and west
Adding the missing blocks
  • Hay bale
  • Fireworks
  • Torch
  • Lever
  • Pressure Plates
  • Sign
  • Banners
  • Redstone Torch
  • Buttons
  • Tripwire Hook
  • Bread
  • Carpet
Note: Items (Food, Tools, Weapons, Mob drops etc.) will not be added to the custom inventory, pick those from the regular inventory.
  • Balustrades in various materials (smooth stone, sandstone bricks, white bricks, light gray bricks, ???) on Anvils, orientable.
  • Torch from Moria RP (Lever)
  • New Banner Patterns
  • Grey fancy pillar (top - middle - bottom)
  • White fancy pillar (top - middle - bottom)
  • New terrain textures for Andrast @jacenpeter, @mattlego
    On hold until textures are more settled
  • (?) Wizard's staffs from Fable of the Five Wizards
    Postponed
Preview for Update v2.2.: (Coming with update to Minecraft 1.12)
  • Fix for brown brick/sandstone brick mixed blocks
  • More orientations for mixed stucco / sandstone bricks blocks
  • More mixed blocks
  • Addition of cobblestone / smooth stone mixed block
  • Multiple bed colors

I also wanna point out a very handy change Eriol made to the Architect plugin: When you are within Dol Amroth you can use the flint with right clicking to pick-block almost any block, even the ones occupying some more special blockstates which did not work previously.

Furthermore I'd like to point out @ryttyr's efforts: He added a series of mini-blocks to the custom head collections! Check them out at /warp Heads. You can get them by typing /get head <head_name>.

Alright so just had some good shower thoughts and recalled an idea @Wodleth voiced, which is variants to the "fancy" pillar which is so far only available as sandstone; I will include a variant with white bricks / stone and grey bricks / stone, on the six blockstates of the chorus flower. Additionally I will move all of the horizontal lower trapdoors to the gold and iron pressure plates. They offer many possibilities in bulk use, as table plates, floor coverings (like carpets just with building blocks) and probably many more things. I can move 28 of the 38 building materials this way

Edit: Updated the changelog

Unfortunately I had to give up on the idea of moving the clotheslines to non-itemblocks. The reason is that these use the mechanic of the 3D-item rendering which renders an item not just plain flat but 1 pixel thick with a nice border. This obviously is only intended to be used for items and not for blocks. I did nevertheless try to just that, but the result was buggy, the texture got derped and the rotation dismissed. Given that we won't be using tons and tons of clotheslines it's not too bad to keep them as itemblocks, the only downside is the render distance, but as they're just details this should be bearable.


I may fill the now unused blockstates to move some more vertical slabs or windows to normal blockstates, the downside is however that they'd be walk-through.

So here are the combination blocks for house walls I promised to make. I think they would be a huge improvement for realistic house walls. The bad news is that they need a lot (80!) of blockstates. For testing I used glazed terracotta, concrete and concrete powder blocks which will be introduced with mc 1.12. I don't know how many full block states are free in Gondor2 rp, but quite sure there are less than 80. So we will need to wait for 1.12 to make full use of this.

large_small_brick_combi.png
This one is a bit special, I made four orientations with a backside which is not symmetrical as you would expect for a cornerstone. The reason is visible at the right. In this way you can also use this block in the middle of a wall and the wall does look the same from backside.

deco_corner.png
Combination of horizontal deco blocks with cornerstones. Each one orientable in four directions.

light_dark_brick_combi.png
Combinations of light and dark small bricks. All are a bit diagonal, two blocks have more dark bricks at the bottom and the other two blocks have some more at the top part. Both blocks are orientable in 4 directions. Back side of the wall looks the same.

lime_stucco_combi.png
Material combination blocks with sandstone and lime hardened clay (in 1.12 called terracotta) stucco. Sum of 16 block states.

pink_stucco_combi.png
Material combination blocks with sandstone and pink hardened clay (in 1.12 called terracotta) stucco. Sum of 16 block states.

blue_stucco_combi.png
Material combination blocks with sandstone and blue hardened clay (in 1.12 called terracotta) stucco. I chose this as there are already special blocks for this colour in Gondor2 rp. Sum of 16 block states.

light_blue_stucco_combi.png
Material combination blocks with sandstone and lime hardened clay (in 1.12 called terracotta) stucco. I chose this colour too as there are already special blocks for it in Gondor2 rp. Sum of 16 block states.

All blockstate, model and texture files are in the attached zip file.

For cloth lines - cannot you use only 2 panes? One for empty line and one for clothline with randomized textures on it.

I think I have done same thing in Eriador pack <flags under one of panes>

@Despot, panes don't have that great 3D rendering.

Also I really don't see any problem to use item blocks here. Clothlines between the houses will hardly be notice to vanish in 70 blocks distance


@Finrod_Amandil, any more texture ideas? :D :D :D
I'm now working on the small sandstone brick textures, they need more variation especially the mixed in larger bricks.

Maybe some ideas for what we will do with the 16 beds we'll get. So some more beds and some other things that can use this hitbox, low tables, benches or even some sort of building blocks...

All of these blocks can now (with the closeby update) be used without any fear of lag, they are no longer itemblocks! Please look out for the "ITEMBLOCK" marker in the block's names in the custom inventory to find out whether a block is an itemblock or not.

Edit: forgot the Oak planks vertical slab ;)

Alright I am drawing a line here and closing this v2.1 update. The few breadcrumbs which I didn't include in this update will probably follow with the next update.

I will contact q to update the pack download links, as well as making a Resource so you can download it manually. For those who want to try it out right now can download it from Github: GitHub - MCME/Gondor-2: The revamped Gondor pack. Please note that the inventories will not work until q has update the serverside packs.

For those who want to know exactly what changed in the update can check out the full rundown of file changes: v2.1 update · MCME/Gondor-2@461c954 · GitHub

To @Thijs1801: All itemblocks that have been moved to a regular blockstate need replacing. After the update they will be look like blocks with this texture:
To find out what the block represented before the update simply load an older version of the RP, so don't throw away the older version yet!

If there's any bugs, further suggestions or questions about this update, please voice them here.

I don't think it matter whether I use the fence gates or the glass panes, the reason why I want to keep it as itemblocks is because there's this nice feature that items are automatically rendered 3D instead of completely flat which looks really nice for the clothlines. I tried porting this to the fence gates but it didn't work properly, if I moved it to glass panes the result would probably be the same.

There is a bug with Forge currently that Comparators (dirt and other slabs in the RP) disappear when you break an adjacent one. I have looked it with a developer from Forge and this bug should be fixed with the next Forge release. For all who play unmodded everything should be working fine. Comparators disappearing when placed on special blocks
