    Re-posting this from the steam forums as there seems to be more activity over here, plus it looks nicer to boot. :)


    Would love to see some more custom blocks in this game from some of the talented modders out there. I haven't played this game in a while, but I have been keeping up with it, checking out the new patches, reading the forums ect, and was really psyched when I saw KSH added custom block modding.

    But, looking thro the workshop, Im a little surprised there aren't more people making custom blocks and such...I would have thought people would have jumped on the chance to make some more stylized blocks and such by now, tho I can understand people not wanting to because of worry that an update might break it or something... 8/

    And before anyone says, "why not just make them yourself?" I have dabbled in programs like blender and such in the past, but they just take so much time to learn and actually make something worthy of the detail of this game. I just dont have that kind of time right now unfortunately. 8/

    Anyway, lets move on. I want to see what blocks people want in this game from the modding community. :) (not from KSH) Maybe someone will come by and get inspiration to make it!

    I for one, want to see more types of window and door blocks, specifically for the wood style blocks. Things like archer slits, different railings, and different roofs ect. P

    lease only post what you would LIKE to see. Please dont go and make demands for things. Thank you! :)

    If you have pictures to show, that would be awesome! Let the ideas fly! 8D

    Let's see...

    Doors with an actual door in them (probably needs some engine support)
    Arrow Loops (in walls, curved walls, blocks, and curved blocks)
    Large radius towers (walls and solid blocks, battlements)
    walkway type wooden floors (half-width, centered half width)
    15 and 30 degree sloped walls
    2x1x1 double size rope attachment point (this would allow us to make proper vertical ropes which are not offset by half a block, which currently induces odd forces in lifts)
    Better Gears
    Interior Decorations (wall hangings, sconces, chandelier-type things)

    off the top of my head. I'm sure I can think of more given time ;)

    The hard part is getting a way to add high level of detail with minimal new blocks.

    Also some broken or half built cobble walls for ruins.

    Just wanted to show my appreciation of the mods by machtoc and Cyrus Entia - very excited by the thought of what might be coming from others .
    Can any of you modders give some indication as to what you're working on?
