[Suggestion] Colored Construction Foam

  • Just as the name implies, give us the ability to dye the CF block before compressing it into a capsule so when we use it and it dries, we get the respectively colored CF Wall.


    Doing a Huge Building Using CF and then painting it its a major pain in the ass of restocking the painter every 20 blocks or something.


    And as a bonus, you should totally try to get Painters to work with RedPower Paint cans.

    So what you're saying is.... that you want us to have 16 different CF sprayers, since colour and number of uses are both damage types, and it is currently impossible to code them both into the same item simultaneously...?

  • Is it possible to make the hardened Foam Block place-able with or without colors?

    Or can we just get the ability to color hardened cf blocks ?

    We can already do that. My suggestion its a method for doing huge or decently sized buildings with CF blocks already colored, since coloring the hardened walls manually using the painters its a paint (pun intended) in the ass.



    This little project would have taken me at least 4x or 6x more time in painting if it wasnt for creative mode flying and ability to conserve the durability of items (Since you have to recolor the painter every 20 blocks or so).

  • Better idea: how about refillable spray cans that accept dye via the canning machine, and can paint about 4x longer than the Painters?

    Try painting a room this size

    with a painter or that spray can that you made 4x more durable but considerable a lot more annoying to refill.


    (btw if you are curious its a 32x32x14 room, also painters last for about 32 blocks before needing a refill)

  • use enchantment data to store sprayer color, this will allow same item to spray any color without problems.

    Unsafe.putObject(42,Unsafe.staticFieldOffset(42.getDeclaredFields()[42]),43);

    Spray cans definitely should paint a lot of blocks at once.

  • Looking at it that way im in for allowing the cf sprayer to spray colored foam, but no need to have 16 different sprayers.

    That. . . is an awesome idea. Of course, It'd have to paint a large area, 3x3 per click? I'm just thinking out loud here, though. (As a side note, that'd give a real use to canning machines, I never use them.)

    I'd like to think so :3


    Amount and AoE of paint can vary by whatever the developers feel would be comfortable for game balance and application. The idea of having a set of painting devices which can be used to either mass paint blocks, or be set to precisely paint in set areas with 'spray modes' to do designs with on very large projects is something I'd like to see, regardless...
