round arch windows

by Leongham » Post

Hi,
I have a question,
is it possible to place glass panes/blocks in stairs or slabs, so I have round arch windows?
Is there a mod for this or can I rewrite something ?

Somewhat recently a mod was created with round portholes. I am fairly certain there were posts in the mods forum thread about them being used in buildings.

You might be able to create your own mod, based on the glass I made for my artdeco mod
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=14444&hilit=artdeco

If you have any questions or if I can help just let me know and I will see what I can do.
I know I could create a mod specific to what your looking for, but I am just tied up atm doing a massive backup to do a reinstall of my OS

I used your mod artdeco and i have made these two wide block windows and when I place the glass in the window there is a gap between the two windows

Hmm, odd.
If you could, please add either the code to your next post, or upload a .zip of your mod so I can take a look at it.

It will be about a day or two, just so you know.

I actually do know what is happening.
Those windows are not a full node wide. (meaning my arched glass nodes)
There is one line in the pos. field you would need to change to make them a full node wide.
(I just cannot remember which without looking right now)
one of the lines in this section of the code for those windows:

Code: Select all

type = "fixed",
		fixed = {
			{-0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0},
Maybe someone else will come along in the meantime and be able to tell you exactly which

If not, as soon as I have some time I will create it for you.

But you will also need to change the textures.

Okay thank you. I changed the textures of some blocks of your mod, because I build Minas Tirith from Lord of the Rings. And for the citadel I used your mod to build arch windows and changed the textures there, so it looks better.

Nice job, looks good.

I think some of the lighting work done (coming with 0.4.16 release) will fix the lighting issues with meshes so, keep an eye out for that as well.

I also plan to use a cylinder mesh for the columns in this mod soon, as suggested by VanessaE a short while back.

If you could, or if you feel like it..., if you could open a github acct and upload your version of the mod?
This way others can benefit from your work as well as fork it, etc..

Allow it?
I encourage it.

And yes, the lighting looks much better in your last image.
