This modification adds the craft of glass blowing to the game: melting, blowing, molding and processing glass products.

There are several ways to make glass items:

  • 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.

The modification also adds glass classification, so you can use many types and colors of glass in one recipe.

This mod adds only crafting mechanic, glass items and their recipes are added by other mods.

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

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

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.

Remember kids, when blowing glass, do not inhale.

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 at 8:58 PM

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

💬 Xytabich, Jul 7th 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

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 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:

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!

💬 Vasiliyhop, Feb 13th at 7:55 AM

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

💬 SpearAndFang, Feb 12th at 3:14 AM

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

💬 OpPointBaker, Feb 11th 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!

💬 Xytabich, Feb 11th 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 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.
