    Is there any mod or jey to just paint one face of the block?

    It would be ammazing just to have a color outside and one inside, to paint only one face just puss Shift+1+Central mouse button for example!

    "The URI you submitted has disallowed characters." For some reason it puts > at the end in the URL.
    That's really too bad though. Would love to be able to paint individual sides.

    As Malware said, No.

    But the reason is that for a block there is only one attribute for color, so when you change the color of the block it changes the whole block color. The block data would have to have 6 color attributes, which means more data to manage, and more for the drawing system to do because looking at a block now has to figure out which sides can be seen and what to paint each side seen. There are also curved blocks like the medical bay where painting one side of the block (where it is curved) is going to look weird if it doesn't match.

    Unfortunately you can't with this game engine (as far as I am aware), they would have to change to one like Unity3D to have that functionality. That doesn't mean they won't have it in the future if the game engine is upgraded. There are other ways round it using double skins, exoskeleton-like armour etc

    Its a feature of Empyrion.. it has colors and textures per side of block. It makes for some great aesthetical customization.

    Read what I linked to. There would be less data per block ;)
