Hi J1. This is very nice mod!

It offers a few blocks which looks very nice and have simple recipes that are based on very common things like dirt, cobble, water bucket or torch. So it adds to a game some new building materials and a new type of glass and lighting, and all that stuff will be available to player without much effort to craft in the early phase of the game, or - which I consider as equivalence - available during any phase of the game for fast and mass production for challenging and demanding construction projects or long roads. This mod is like modern, lightweight mini-moreblocks!

Although this mod is about only a few blocks, but that is all right. It can be used successfully as a small but powerful addition to any popular easy-fun server with many visually attractive and homedecor-like stuff - players will find something new, fresch and usefull to decorate their creations. Also it can be great update for all simple servers based on default minetest_game (and singleplayer gameplay), as this mod does not require any special materials for recipies.

Perhaps someone could complain here that the appearance of some blocks is too contrasting, too sharp, too visually expressive/agressive... but why not? It always can be changed and moreover, some may even like this. I also have a question. Do we need that hidden .git folder and its content in the mod folder?

And thanks for nice mod!

The .git folder is for when you want to use something such as `git pull` in the terminal to update the mod. It's used to upload the mod to GitHub, and you can also use it to make pull requests (I think). It is not required, of course, but it isn't doing any harm.

Nice blocks! Oceanic bricks and compacted obsidian are my favourite ones.

Edit: I think, this topic could go to mod releases, since you have v1.0. Just write the dependencies (which is only default) and license into the first post and add "[v1.0]" to the topic name. Then write a request to the "topic movement requests" thread and it's done.

Your mod is 'submitted' but I would prefer if you posted your submission to the competition yourself. It helps from not jumping all over the forums looking for your mod. Thanks.
viewtopic.php?f=47&t=22416

judging will commence soon.
