Latest file for v1.19.0: 1-click install

Glassmaking is a mod-lib (a modification for use in other modifications) that adds glass typing and glass manipulation to the game. The mod doesn't add any glassware, only the tools to create it.

Available processes:

  • Glass melting - you can melt glass of various types and colors, preparing it for further processes.
  • Glass mixing - different types of glass can be used during blowing, casting, etc.
  • Blowing - with the help of a special pipe and tools, you can give the glass any rounded shape.
  • Molding - the glass is blown or poured into a prepared mold.
  • Processing on a workbench - it is possible to create complex products using many parts and processing steps.


If you have any questions or issues, please ping me in official game discord Xytabich

MrL972 the mod should work under this version. If there is any bug or crash, you can submit it to GitHub, or attach a link to the log file.

💬 MrL972, Mar 28th at 6:03 AM

can you update to 1.19.4 ?

💬 Moon_Dew, Feb 22nd at 7:54 AM

Any plans for Bricklayers compatibility?

💬 Rinly, Feb 21st at 9:48 PM

will try to use this

💬 XytabichAuthor, Feb 1st at 1:52 AM

The mod is still being updated. The update is delayed due to major animation changes in the new version of the game and a small amount of free time.

💬 Norbix, Jan 29th at 12:47 AM

Working on 1.19?

💬 XytabichAuthor, Aug 5th 2023 at 7:58 PM

Frovix I use the same system as others. You can write me to Discord or PM and send the file, i'll check what's wrong with it

💬 Frovix, Aug 5th 2023 at 3:53 PM

how to translate this mod? i usually translate the en.json file and everything works in the case of your mod this solution does not work

💬 XytabichAuthor, Aug 4th 2023 at 2:32 AM

Screwy I didn't plan to do any compatibility. But there is documentation, and i can also explain how to add something, in case there is someone who wants to add compatibilities.

💬 Screwy, Aug 3rd 2023 at 6:38 AM

I've been waiting for mods using this idea, thanks for working it out! Are there jet any plans on cooperations between this library and already existing mods like culinary artillery, lavoisier or alchemy? Complatibility would be a great addition to those mods

💬 XytabichAuthor, Mar 3rd 2023 at 4:26 PM

Can you upload these crashes to Discord or GitHub? Arzavak

💬 Arzavak, Mar 2nd 2023 at 11:10 PM

Are there any mods besides bricklayers that this works with? Every time I've tried Bricklayers one of the mods didn't work or the game crashed, even with every one of the compatibility mods. I really would love to make a glassblowers house and use it as part of my survival world, but I've never been able to get the mods to work so there is no point in having it.

💬 l33tmaan, Jan 3rd 2023 at 10:49 AM

Perhaps the bottles from A Culinary Artillery could take advantage of these... optionally, of course.

💬 Oobfiche, Jan 3rd 2023 at 7:40 AM

@cofet this mod is a library mod, its ment for other modders to use it as a base for their items. and as of now no mods use it just yet

💬 Cofet, Dec 10th 2022 at 12:46 AM

Was so excited for this mod but I cannot do anything with it. Why are the molds not in the game? There is no recipe for the glass blowing pipe part. I cannot figure out how to blow the blob of glass on the blowpipe. Am I going crazy? No link to the other mods that supposedly have molds either. Very cool mechanics, but I cant do anything with it.

💬 XytabichAuthor, Oct 21st 2022 at 11:23 AM

Please submit bug reports to the github issue tracker. Or to me in the discord, you can find me on the official VintageStory server. Matty

💬 Matty, Oct 18th 2022 at 7:03 PM

Getting a CTD when I try and place the Lathe. Any ideas what could be causing this? I have the crash reports if need be.

Also Don't seem to have the recipes for any of the tools outside of creative mode.

💬 Dustbus, Aug 2nd 2022 at 9:14 PM

Remember kids, when blowing glass, do not inhale.

💬 Arzavak, Jul 12th 2022 at 3:11 PM

Does anyone have a list of mods this mod works with? The only one I found it Bricklayers and I couldn't get it to work on my server even with all of the compatibility mods. I would love to have this in my game, but there are no recipes for me to use.

💬 Nalier, Jul 7th 2022 at 8:58 PM

Oh! I didn't think about that. I'm going to build it in Survival then, thank you.

💬 XytabichAuthor, Jul 7th 2022 at 8:32 PM

The smeltery needs to be built, these translucent blocks are the building plan. Perhaps you have tooltips disabled, because when you hover over plan blocks, you can see the cost in materials. You can also see how many materials are needed in the handbook. Nalier

💬 Nalier, Jul 7th 2022 at 2:40 PM

I tried this mod alone on Creative, but the Large Glass Smeltery doesn't work for me. When I place it in the world it looks like a brick block surrounded on all sides by transparent blocks.

The concept of the mod is excellent, though. I think it really fits with in-game mechanics.

💬 Sophorose, Jun 14th 2022 at 4:24 AM

I love this concept! Really excited to see where you take this, and when you release your electricity mod!

Unfortunately after adding this to my server I had a hard crash when right clicking on the glassmaker's table with an empty hand - I'm not sure if it might be due to some interaction, but here's the log just in case:

💬 SingABrightSong, Feb 19th 2022 at 1:38 AM

To put some thoughts in that I posted on the Discord server a while back...

  • Glass casting would function mechanically as a technological advancement over clay molding, allowing the player to make, let's say, bowls and crocks, which are necessary in increasing amounts as the player advances
  • Clay-forming is labour intensive, while glass forming would be less so but be gated behind the pulverizer to obtain crushed quartz

Very glad to see this as a mod, looking great!

💬 Fossilien, Feb 13th 2022 at 7:55 AM

Good idea. I like it. I'm looking forward to updates.

💬 SpearAndFang, Feb 12th 2022 at 3:14 AM

Truly amazing work here.  I commend you for your efforts!

💬 OpPointBaker, Feb 11th 2022 at 10:16 PM

May I suggest looking into compatibility with the Brick Layers mod? It has a lot of mixtures for making colored glass and ceramic glazes. Having dark blue glass blocks would be so cool!

💬 XytabichAuthor, Feb 11th 2022 at 9:23 PM

@1618 For example: jewelry, bottles, vials, cookware, chemical glassware. Personally for myself, i started making this system to add the ability to create vacuum tubes.

💬 1618, Feb 11th 2022 at 8:30 PM

" products." - Such as?

To me the best use of glass is Stained Glass and Lighting options. Something vanilla has way too little of.
