Best way to compress a series of multiple state blocks


Recommended Posts

Hi I am working on updating the Slimevoid slopes mod to 1.5.2 and gotten everything working so far. What I want to do is compress the mod to less than 200 or so block IDS.


I can get rid of 2/5 s by combining two types of blocks into one, with metadata range 0-7/8-15 being translated to 0/1 damge respectively but I've seen build craft have a Ton of blocks with a single ID. I am wondering if someone would enlightening me in how to do this?

OK i'm looking through the code for buildcraft but I can't find exactly where it knows what icon to display on the block. Is there a tutorial out there for using TileEntities to create sub blocks?



And I have an open-source mod (link in my sig) which uses a surprisingly sophisticated system.
