Latest file for Various v1.19.x: 1-click install

Chisel Tools adds tools that will unleash your creativity when it comes ot chiseling! (Most modes usable in survival!)
- copy, paste, and save your designs across servers and saves with the Pantograph. Including merging shapes together!
- easily reuse the same shape with different materials! 
- quickly scrape off layers of voxels with the hand planer tool
- rotate, mirror, and move your shape on all three axis with the hand wedge tool
- turn your chiseled blocks into custom ladders with the ladder tool
- adds chiseled chests and vessels!
- create multiblock chiseled doors!
- make special copy protected versions of your design to give as gifts or sell in player shops!


New in 1.10.3:

Portfolio Preview!
- press "P" to bring up a portfolio preview page! Preview your shapes as they would apply to the targeted block
  - you must target a chiseled block you have access to for it to function
  - clicking on a shape will copy it to the pantograph in your active slot
  - use the filter text box to search, you can use the * for pattern matching: eg *dog* to find all your files that start with dog
- new Japanese translation from RikeiR, thanks for that!

1.10.2 changes:
- fixed .pf list command to show all matching files
- nerfed decorative chests, existing decorative chests will show up as Decorative Chest SE, but can't be crafted anymore

1.10.1  is a Vintage Story 1.19.x compatibility release - PLEASE TEST BEFORE USING ON SERVERS!
If you're using Vintage Story 1.18.x stick with version 1.10 of chisel tools!

- Added Decorative Chests & Decorative Vessels
   - craft with chest or vessel plus chisel
   - right click to add a chiseled block as its shape




  • bug fixes, material paste crash, and rare door crash

  • Pantograph - you can now paste materials in survival mode!!
    • It will take the appropriate blocks out of inventory
    • If the destination block has the same materials as the source, but in a different order, it will reorder them to match (doesn't use up materials)
    • some Blocks don't work with this - eg you may end up with planks in a different direction and it might not recognize that the planks in your inventory match
  • Jonas Paint brush - added colored lights, and changed how you get them a bit
    • first off the crazy bright white light has been removed and replaced with a toned down version
    • similar lighting levels have been added for other dye colors
    • support for woad blue
    • Changes in behaviour
      • you still get colored glow blocks (from hotbar slot 1) using dye and the jonas paintbrush
      • to get light up blocks you must paint (right click, don't shfit+click!) the glowing blocks with white dye using the jonas brush
      • using white dye will get you the new toned down lighting block
      • with the regular paintbrush Woad is a darker blue then the other blue dye, but looks the same when glowing/lit

  • 1.9.3
    - you can now Shift + Click with the Paint Brush to add a material to a chiseled block (just right clicking will replace the targeted material instead)
       - will attempt to add the item in your first slot to the targeted chisel block (item is consumed in survival!)
       - many more items can be added as chiseled textures - be prepared for weird textures and ? blocks, though it shouldn't crash anything, but for example you could add a painting as a texture (again the items are consumed in survival so be careful!)
       - with the standard paint brush you can have a bucket of dye in the slot and it will add/replace a matching creative block (almost pure color block) - eg a bucket of blue dye will turn the block blue (0.1 L of dye is consumed in survival)

    - Added the Jonas Paint Brush - this variant has a much lower durability but has a special interaction with buckets of dye, try and see!

    - the copy protect function of the Pantograph is now activated with right clicking (like the other modes) instead of left clicking

- added The True Chisel

   - This end game chisel does not require a hammer and has 2x the durability of a regular steel chisel
   - It does require two steel chisels and a hammer to create (the hammer is consumed)

- added file pattern matching to .pf list command, for example you would now search A* to find something starting with A or *snake to find any pattern containing the word snake 
    - .pf list * - would show all files
    - .pf list s* - would show all files starting with "s"
    - .pf list *snake* - would show all files containing the word snake
    - .pf list sn?ke - would show files such as snake or snoke
    - .pf list *snake - would show all files ending in snake
    - (Note: you no longer use "all" to show all files you'd use * instead

- fixed crash when attempting to undo an remove block with the pantograph
- added pantograph function: Create Copy Protected Block
   - this will make the targeted block copy protected. The block can still be edited, pasted to etc, but the pantograph
will no longer take snapshots of this block. (The block may be changed back into a solid block, so make sure you have a copy first
you can still paste to the block, just not copy it)
  - NOTE The Copy Lock block is performed with the LEFT mouse button, not the right as usual - i'll fix that up in the next release!

Chisel Tools 1.9.0
New feature: The Portfolio- allows save and loading chiseled block data with a pantograph to your local computer. Models can be shared between servers and world saves.
- adds several commands:
.pf list all - Lists any saved pantograph models - you can replace "all" with a word to match for (eg: .pf list snakes would list all models that contain the word "snakes"
.pf save <filename>saves the copied data from an equipped pantograph to your computer using the file name you supply
.pf load <filename>loads chiseled model from the file and copies it into the pantograph, ready for pasting

- files can't contain spaces, they are case insensitive on windows (unknown on Mac or Linux)
- the save command will overwrite whatever file is there without warning
- if you use a "\" to denote a directory it will technically work if the directory is there, but this is not supported. If the directory is not there your client will crash
- files are saved the folder: AppData\Roaming\VintagestoryData\chiselportfolio (at least on Windows)
- Since this uses the pantograph tool you don't have to worry about what materials are used, only how many. If the number of materials used doesn't match only the first material is used.
- also the pantograph respects land claims so you won't be able to copy someone elses build files if you don't have access



1.8.4 Vintage Story 1.18 release

1.8.3 - Added Japanese translation from Macoto Hino, Thanks!

1.8.2 - Vintage Story 1.18rc compatibility release

1.7.2 Block Security Update
- pantograph no longer functions on reinforced blocks (technically this would let a creator copy protect their design too)
- chiseled door limits: 30 blocks, and 50 block distance (from the first block you tag)
* I have not been able to test chunk claim protection. In theory the tools should do nothing if you don't have access, if it doesn't work please let me know!

Just a few tweaks - some of the tools won't affect chiseled doors anymore to prevent issues

1.7.0-pre.3 Is up!
This is a preview build for testing your servers!

- Adds chiseled doors to the game via the pantograph, see video here:
Chiseled Door Tutorial Video
- general instructions:
  - starting with a chiseled block, put your pantograph in Assign Closed Door Model mode (f to access modes)
  - right click to change it to a door block (you may have to left click one time if it's a new pantograph)
     - now you can right click the block to switch between your block and an open (empty) state (don't click with pantograph of course)
     - if you want to add an open door model, change your pantograph mode to Assign Open Door Model mode, left click to copy a different chiseled block and right click on your door to add that model as it's open state. Right click the block now switches states
     - shift right clicking with Assign Closed Door Model mode will make the closed door state an empty block, you can also shift right click with Assign Open Door Model mode to make the open door an empty block.

  - if you want multiple doors to open & close at once use Connect Door Tool mode with the pantograph
     - right click (with pantograph) on all the doors in the group and then left click on one of the doors and they will link up
     - right clicking those blocks will now open and close them as a group (again, don't click with pantograph when opening & closing doors)
  - Notes:
    - whatever your chiseled block is when you make it a door tool is saved, and when you break that door block you will receive that chiseled block as a drop (so in survival you will like be net negative on materials if you have pasted in new shapes or added a open shape etc)
    - the door's open and closed models can have different sets of materials

1.6.3 Fixes server crash
- note in MP you may take damage at times on chiseled ladders (working on it!)
- update on taking damage randomly on chiseled ladders - for now if you chisel the block at all the damage stops (also reloading the game resets the chiseled ladders. So keep your hammer and chisel handy when transforming ladder blocks!

1.6.1 Added The Ladder Tool!
- the ladder tool will change any chiseled block with 8 or more voxels into a ladder!
- make on an anvil out of iron, steel, or meteoric iron
- breaks relatively quickly for a tool

1.6 Added Block Swapper Tool
- creative only mode tool will replace the targeted block with whatever block is in your first item slot (Like the paintbrush but for blocks!)

1.5.5 - good to go for vintage story 1.17.1

Tools will now change blocks into chiselable blocks if possible
(the first click changes the block, then the second click would perform the function)

1.5- Adds the Paint Brush tool! \o/
Place a block or bucket of dye in the first slot of your hotbar. Right click chiseled blocks with the paintbrush to paint it with the material in your hotbar. Dye and Blocks will be used up in survival mode!

- fixed pantograph renaming unamed blocks to "copy"



1.4.5 Tweaks and minor bug fixes

- Added config option "fixedToolWear"
- only settable in the config file directly
    - if true then the pantograph will always use pantographMinimumDamagePerOp for tool wear, ignoring number of voxels and ignoring pantographBaseDurabilityModifier: eg: set fixedToolWear to true and set pantographMinimumDamagePerOpto 40 and the pantograph will now always take 40 wear damage when doing any paste operation

- fixed a warning about a missing texture (thanks AleDark)
- fixed a possible memory leak (thanks AleDark)
- fixed bug where pantograph sets pasted blocks name to copy (thanks Aledark & electrobob)
- snapshot and other sounds should work on MP again.

1.4 Brings some new features and changes, video here!

- (1.4 tweaks pantograph tool usage rate) command /qpchisel-resetdefaults - resets tool usage settings to their defaults 

- Pantograph - copy and merge blocks

  - Pantograph basic operations (note: changes to functionality in 1.4)
  - press F to select mode, right click to use selected mode 
  - 1.4.1 Left Click to Snapshot again by popular demand (you can disable this in the mod config file if you want the new-old way)

  - it keeps the destination shapes materials (if the origin has more materials than the destination then the first material is used)
   - mode set with F
    - Snapshot Mode - Take a snapshot of the selected block to use for pasting
    - Replace Mode - Replace the selected block's shape with the snapshotted shpae
    - Add mode - add the snapshotted block's shape to the selected block's shpae
    - access undo with F (undoes the very last paste operation if possible)
   - command to set tool usage: /qpchisel-pantograph-toolusage 0.001
           (tool wear is affect by how many voxels are changed - so smaller changes should use less tool durability!)
   - can be made with steel, iron & meteoric iron

Video Showing the Pantograph

The Hand Wedge - move, rotate, and mirror in all directions

(let me know if you think of a better name heh). This super handy chiseling tool will shift all the voxels of your chiseled object by 1 in any direction. Great for recentering and lining things up!
New Modes in 1.4
   - Move mode (same old move mode)
   - Rotate Block - rotate a block on any axis!
   - Mirror Block - mirror a block on any axis!
     - shares tool wear settings with the hand planer
     - craftable in iron, meteoric iron, and steel on the anvil
     - press F and choose Undo to undo your last movement!

Video Showing the Hand Wedge

Hand Planer - cut or add entire planes, or matching materials

- the perfect tool to rough in your chiseled blocks
- modes  - press F to open the mode menu!
     Add/Remove Any (will delete or add an entire plane of voxels)
     Add/Remove Material (will delete/add only the targeted material)
     Undo - not really a mode, but clicking this will attempt to undo the last operation

Video showing extrusion
- only craftable in iron and better materials (via smithing)
- tool damage implented
    - you can now adjust tool damage rate with the command: /qpchisel-handplaner-toolusage 0.125
    - (0.125 is the default, 0.25 would wear tool 2x as fast, 0.0625 would wear the tool half as fast)
    - running command with no number will tell you the current setting

Paint Brush - paint materials on to chiseled blocks! (new in 1.5)
- Place a block or bucket of dye in the first slot of your hotbar. Right click chiseled blocks with the paintbrush to paint it with the material in your hotbar. Dye and Blocks will be used up in survival mode!

💬 Nachi, 2 days ago

I really love this mod and how much freedom it gives you to add details and create things as you wish. That said, there might be a bug with the collision, because I watched my Feverstone Horses walk stright through my 3-tall custom doors 3 times. They do not collide with the outside, vanilla 3-tall doors, so they haven't escaped the barn completely, but it was still confusing to witness. It could also be the fact that I had etched little stall windows into the top two door blocks, if that prevents collision.

I'm gonna test it with drifters, vanilla animals, and glass etched into the windows soon, but I wanted to mention this before I forgot about it.

Also attached is a picture of the outside of my custom barn, lantern, and pedestal, which I'm proud of and only came out this well due to Chisel Tools :)

Edit: Confirmed vanilla animals do not collide with custom doors (tested with etched windows)

Edit: Confirmed Feverstone Horses do not collide with custom doors (no holes), and guessing the same with vanilla

💬 Cookieie, 3 days ago

I just spend the better part of the last weekend learning to use all your Chisel Tools. I am sure it will get easier the more I use them.  I do like all the possibilities and I have a few ideas in mind.  I do have one issue though.  The CLICKING of the Decortive Chests and Vessels is a bit louder than many of my normal sounds.  Is there a setting for turning that down on my end or do you have to do that?  I have tried the sound levers but that turns all the sounds down. 

💬 TacticalPotato, 4 days ago

Thx for making the new creative light blocks! They function so much better than the vanilla ones even without chiseling them.

💬 TravieSun, 4 days ago

Amazing mod Ptah, loving all the cool tools! :D

💬 PtahAuthor, 5 days ago

PetMudstone it's not that I wouldn't want to do that, it's just that I haven't figured out how to do that!

💬 PetMudstone, 5 days ago

I agree with FeoneVaren's suggestion to let you only plane exposed and connected parts of a surface. I used the planer extensively while making a lamp post and adjusting the small shafts was problematic when attempting to extrude with the planer resulted in many more extraneous bits of block appearing. It would also be handy if you could select only a section of a block's face to strip or extrude, perhaps by clicking a starting point and an ending point to choose an area.

💬 FeoneVaren, Feb 11th at 11:53 AM

Thank you for your work, this mod is amazing. the door and ladder tools add a ton of possibilities to builds and the pantograph and planer are a huge QOL boost.

I have a few suggestions if you're interested:
For the hand planer: a mode that only planes the exposed and connected parts of a surface rather than the entire block through. Especially handy for working on corners or tweaking carvings in a wall.
For the chests: would it be possible to add compatibility with the Extra Chests mod for decorative storage with bigger inventories?
In the same vein, decorative trunks would also be cool, might be doable by having them take a single chiseled block that gets mirrored to the other half?

💬 PtahAuthor, Feb 10th at 3:21 PM

HausKamps That would interesting, after doing some UI work on storage controller maybe i could pull it off hmm

💬 HausKamps, Feb 10th at 1:18 AM

Would it be possible to add a blueprint book to the survival guide?  Have a tab that shows previews of saved blocks and clicking on them would add it to the pantigraph.  Also could be used for changing names and sorting into groups.  I think this would be really nice for a lot of saved blocks.  Great mod!!! Love it!!! 10/10 Ptah

💬 zackadiax24, Jan 14th at 10:34 PM

would it be possible to add a tool for quickly converting a large number of blocks (like a wall or floor for example) into chiselable blocks all at once? I know the process for right clicking a block only takes a fraction of a second, but that fraction of a second is just enough to throw me off.

💬 DarkThoughts, Jan 9th at 3:01 PM

Ptah Took me a while to figure out but the creative menu is just buggy. At first I didn't even saw the tabs on the right side when you have several mods installed. But the main issue is that the "Everything" tab only lists the mods on the left side of the menu. If I search for the tool names they literally do not show up because I have to actually click onto the actual mod page on the right side.

Also, why can you tag people here when it doesn't give the tagged person a notification...

💬 PtahAuthor, Jan 8th at 3:21 PM

Mirok wait there's pictures in game of the mods? I'll have to look for that lol.

💬 Mirok, Jan 8th at 11:53 AM

@QuentinP I meant in the game, in the list of mods... Whatever you come up with looks great.

💬 OutcastZeroOne, Jan 7th at 7:35 PM

you absolute madman, time for more chiseling work...

💬 PtahAuthor, Jan 7th at 1:23 PM

Mirok guess it's about time for a splash page, how's the new one?

💬 PtahAuthor, Jan 7th at 12:12 PM

DarkThoughts the tools most definitely appear on the creative menu under the Chisel Tools tab. Good point on the description I'll have to write one up again the patch notes have slowly pushed it off lol.

💬 Mirok, Jan 7th at 9:51 AM

Someone make him a picture for the mod, so that in the list of mods he looks according to his quality... 

💬 DrShakamoto, Jan 6th at 12:38 PM

Praise QuentinP Lord of the chisel 

💬 McThrill, Jan 5th at 6:53 PM
💬 Rufert, Jan 2nd at 9:30 PM

Any ETA for 19? I don't mean to nag but I literally cannot play without this mod

💬 DarkThoughts, Dec 29th 2023 at 4:40 PM

Why do the tools not show up in the creative menu?

And also, what the hell is this mod description? If I didn't see what this mod does in another video I would have not come back to look at this mod at all. It just looks like a giant messy patch notes section.

💬 McThrill, Dec 1st 2023 at 4:13 PM

QuentinP Yeah I figured as much. Just thought I'd pass along the info in case it hleps you, big fan of the mod and looking forward to using it again after 1.19 hits stable :) Thanks for all the work you put into this.

💬 PtahAuthor, Dec 1st 2023 at 2:53 PM

McThrill definitely because the project isn't 1.19.

💬 McThrill, Dec 1st 2023 at 2:52 PM

QuentinP here's a link to the crash log. Just looking over, it seems to be having problems referencing the item render info.

yThe game hard crashes whenever I put an iron ingot on the anvil, it will restart and run fine until I place another iron ingot on the anvil at which point the same thing happens again.

💬 PtahAuthor, Dec 1st 2023 at 2:31 PM

McThrill the crash references chisel tools? Weird is it like one of tool recipes, like chisel tools doesn't touch ingots or anvils.

@Whiteshadoh - the number of materials must match on both and the portolio does not save the actual material, only the order of materials used. (So it's just save like the top right voxel is material #1, the bottom right voxel is material #2. So when you load and paste into a two material chiseled block elsewhere it will use the two materials of that chiseled block.

💬 Whiteshadoh, Nov 30th 2023 at 5:09 PM

No, I'm getting files from a second pc[1] and trying to load them into my single player world pc[2] then upload them to a server.

It works one one computer but not the other, also it seems to only load the shape in not the materials that go to each place of the shape.

💬 McThrill, Nov 25th 2023 at 1:12 PM

This mod causes the game to crash immediately when placing an iron ingot onto an anvil in 1.19 Pre-7. To be clear this isn't a complaint (I'm fully aware that an experimental build of the game is going to have issues and problems with existing mods), just thought the info might be useful to the mod's creator. If you want the error log I can supply it.

💬 PtahAuthor, Nov 24th 2023 at 5:34 PM

Whiteshadoh does it tell you it loaded successfully and give you the number of materials. Also both on the same computer right?

💬 Whiteshadoh, Nov 22nd 2023 at 5:55 AM

Chisel Tools 1.9.0
New feature: The Portfolio

I cannot get the load to work at all, it saves them just fine but when i try to load them into another world nothing.

💬 Barhandar, Nov 19th 2023 at 7:13 PM

The claim copy protection is unfortunate... because it works perfectly. On The Resonant Archives.

Stock-game claims (lore structures, and potentially traders) should probably be ignored by copy protection, for the sake of not having to painstakingly recreate interesting pieces (columns, railings, etc) from them just because they're protected against breaking-and-entering.

💬 PtahAuthor, Nov 5th 2023 at 10:05 PM

Jenpai that should work in 1.9.3!

💬 Jenpai, Nov 3rd 2023 at 9:40 AM

I noticed that you can't swap sand blocks with the paintbrush tool, you can replace sand with other blocks, but you can't swap an existing block with sand.

💬 PtahAuthor, Nov 1st 2023 at 12:25 PM

Alnex probably won't get that working, some weird stuff with how the block updates (was hoping it would act as flood gate also, but alas no luck)

💬 Alnex, Oct 27th 2023 at 2:12 AM

This mod is the greatest thing since slice bread! If somehow you get the door blocks to act as insulation as well, then I imagine this'd be better than even toast bread! Seriously though, thank you. :)

💬 PtahAuthor, Oct 19th 2023 at 1:49 PM
💬 PtahAuthor, Oct 12th 2023 at 7:22 PM

Heckacoolmon hmm sounds like it might not be installed quite right.

Mendall thanks! I am somewhat out of ideas now though...for now.

💬 Mendall, Oct 12th 2023 at 5:22 PM

Best mod ever and it just keeps getting better. Every time I think you have thought of everything you could possibly add, you top your self again. I thought the door maker was the top now I can save my builds with it as well, You sir are a god.

💬 Heckacoolmon, Oct 11th 2023 at 11:10 PM

So the newest release isn't working on my server.  There are not any errors but all of the tool are just white squares, missing both textures and meshes and do not function.  The mod works fine on single player though.

💬 PtahAuthor, Oct 9th 2023 at 2:00 PM

Yanazake I suspect any 1.18 should work, but I haven't tested it.

💬 AzuliBluespots, Oct 9th 2023 at 1:05 PM

Oh dang. Does it NEED .14?

💬 PtahAuthor, Oct 9th 2023 at 12:54 PM

Rufert i don't think i can do much with that, it should just make a chiseled block at the end of the day.

💬 Rufert, Sep 14th 2023 at 6:41 AM

Any chance of adding some changes to the insulation of chisled blocks along with this mod? 

Vanilla "lolle this block doesn't count for insulation" rules are very unfortunate I find, I can barely chisel my walls before my room no longer counts as such. 


Apologies if the mod already has changed this, I couldn't find anything in the change logs, but I'm also not super sure what to look for. 


To be more specific. I think in vanilla if you remove more than 20 voxels from the inner side of a wall it no longer counts as airtight, or whatever term it uses. This is unfortunate as I like to make my walls a little thinner on the inside and outside just to it looks nicer, with the vanilla rules have to work around having double thickness walls and it becomes a huge ugly mess. Which is the opposite of what I'm trying to achive when chiseling. 

I realise a thinner wall would insulate worse, but honestly. You never have to chisel, it rarely gives you any gameplay advantage, it's extra work to make something look pretty and thus give you a better gaming experience. To be punished for that just puts me off doing it entirely. And having an "ugly" house puts me off the game.

Chisel doors are ignored by animals and drifters. They easily pass through them. Pretty critical issue. Also, the door is not an insulating block and does not allow you to create a room.

💬 Hjupii, Jul 29th 2023 at 11:10 AM



An amazing addition which seems quite plausible seeing that you've managed to add custom doors and ladders, which is already incredible. CHAIRS/MOUNTABLES!! I've been looking all over and cannot find a mod that would allow me to chisel my own mountable furniture. I think many a people would wholeheartedly enjoy such an addition. Thank you for the attention and have a great day!

P.S. Yes, I know I can just press G, but it's not the same. Not looking to hold a lotus pose on anything I sit on.

💬 MacAttack, Jul 8th 2023 at 7:27 AM

Hey. Just a thing i noticed.

Whenever you copy a chiseled block with the pantograph, it seems like some kine of "shadowinfo" of the block is missing on the new block, creating weird shadow and sometimes even hitissues. I need to hit a copied block with a chisel once again to update that.

For example it also makes it, so copied blocks remove waterblocks.

💬 DasPrinzip, Jul 4th 2023 at 6:14 AM


The paintbrush did not work with glas, wood and sand :( Can u fix this please?

💬 Domtron, May 28th 2023 at 4:37 AM

Thanks for the awesome mod!
Playing on a server that uses it and it is seeing a lot of use by me.

One idea I wanted to bring up after making some doors with the mod, have you considered making a way to have hidden doors.
By that I mean, when you look at the door the block info shows a given text or block that the maker can set during the door creation process. Since you can already link the opening of the door to another place in the same room easily enough, making it appear like a normal block when looking at it would be really cool. Like a bookcase that moves to the side when interacting with one of the other nearby bookcases.

💬 Mercatto, May 15th 2023 at 5:34 PM

I dont know if it is possible code wise but did you ever consider adding the option of combining storage and chiseled blocks? You already went above and beyond with the ladder tool and open/closed states. I just wonder how hard it would be to add the option to combine a chiseled block with a chest for example + open/closed states to allow players custom made wardrobes, dressers etc

💬 Nebux, May 8th 2023 at 9:07 AM

1.18.1 QP tools don't auto chisel debarked logs nor the paint brush work with them

💬 Snarkoleptic, Mar 28th 2023 at 9:01 AM

This is probably one of the most useful mods out there, thank you so much for how much time you've saved me!

I don't know the first thing about making mods but I was wondering if it would be possible to make a tool to import/export chisel designs.

💬 artemax44, Mar 13th 2023 at 9:07 AM


I would like this mod updated to 1.18. The mod crashes when I want to use the tools. Thinking of making it work on 1.18 pre?
💬 Mendall, Mar 1st 2023 at 3:47 AM

Is 1.18 going to break your mod.

Just asking since your mod is my number one cant live with out.

So if it is I’m not updating till there's a fix.


💬 Goosechucker, Feb 18th 2023 at 1:35 PM

Blocks copied and pasted with the Pantograph seem to have trouble letting light through until at least one voxel has been modified by a chisel.

💬 r3lik, Jan 27th 2023 at 6:42 AM

I know this is not really my place to say how a mod should be, but I would really appreciate even the ability in the modconfig options folder to allow lower metals to be used, thanks for making such an amazing tool, but as a hardcore player, I'm constantly in the early game and hardly get to make use of such a great creation. Again, don't want to come off as inconsiderate, thanks for your contribution to an already great game <3

💬 l33tmaan, Jan 1st 2023 at 6:47 PM

Yeah, it's called 'go into creative mode and cheat it in'. Not an ideal early-game solution.

💬 Ztoxicman, Jan 1st 2023 at 4:27 AM

Hey do you plan on adding these tools for earlier stages? Cause I got this mod hoping to make stuff only to find out that the stuff is for late stages of the game which really throws a wrench in the gears on my house making.

💬 PtahAuthor, Dec 13th 2022 at 2:31 PM

RogueRaiden I'll have to stop by and see what you've made over there one day :)

💬 RogueRaiden, Dec 12th 2022 at 10:06 PM

QP the door ability is outstanding. The things we can do with it... just wild.

💬 PtahAuthor, Dec 2nd 2022 at 3:06 PM

bringitonwimps glad it magically sorted itself out. I think I need to add my other tools to ignore door blocks (or only do pure chiseled blocks). 

💬 bringitonwimps, Nov 29th 2022 at 12:33 AM

update, i left game go overnight after frustration.. got back on and some of the blocks turned into basic wood blocks.  i was able to now correct em and now my door is working.  idk what the dealio was.  Love this mod by the way

💬 bringitonwimps, Nov 27th 2022 at 9:22 PM

so i have 3 blocks in the world that are door models.. and i can not break them or i crash, also cant chisel em, one acts completly invisable and i cant even do anything to it

I translated this mod into german for our server but in the description of the Pantograph item there are a couple of words that do not have any reference in the language file "Left click to copy, Right click to paste" "Copying" (in the creative inventory hover the mouse over the item)

💬 PtahAuthor, Mar 24th 2022 at 6:46 PM

@DX65 maybe click "home page" at the top which will take you to the discord, probably easier to sort out there - you should only have one file version in the mods folder.

💬 DX65, Mar 24th 2022 at 3:05 PM


I downloaded all 3 only first chisel the planer is working and in my creative and survival inventory there is no other chisel you made. When I look for the wedge, pantograph isn't there like yours is based on your newest video mine doesn't exist just first one. F key only works with regular chisel. 1.11 works but nothing else. I will check my folders but I have literally just checked when I got the cannot load msg. And this was only after I thought maybe the seperate updates needed their own folder in the manager but that only happen after I downloaded it nothing work. But either way I have no way to know any of the newer features in 1.12, 1.13 are working because they aren't for me. I even tried removing stuff. I tried re-reading, rewatching your videos several times just in case I missed something. Could you make tutorial video about installation through the mod manager and how to know if its installed and working? I have to copy and paste the files into the mod manager folder. I haven't had any problems except minor ones with any other mod. This is first time I have had mod not work at all except for Discord mod.

💬 PtahAuthor, Mar 24th 2022 at 10:15 AM

@DX65 do you have more than one chiseltools file in your mods folder - maybe an old file is in there, other than that.

💬 DX65, Mar 24th 2022 at 12:48 AM

What do I do if F key doesn't work with your mod?  F key only works with VS chisel for me. Also next to wedge and pantograph file I was getting unable to load mod, check files. Either way it stopped but still not doing what you're doing in videos. I am literally clueless here. /qpchisel-resetdefaults  gave me message unknown command

💬 PtahAuthor, Mar 16th 2022 at 8:43 PM

DX65 all you need is the 1.1.1 zip file in your mods folder, nothing else! There's no separate extrusion tool it's shift+right click to use with the hand planer

💬 DX65, Mar 15th 2022 at 4:28 PM

QPTECH I was confused because I got the first one. I downloaded it and love the mods I got by you even though only one I have used is the plane and did look a bit in creative at your stoves. I made curved silver pipe thought it would be great with that. And your blower is great for vents in my golden spaceorb;) Then I saw the extrusion one and was confused, so I think I did something wrong. First I thought it was 1.0, then I thought I was missing out so I got it but not sure if I dragged it right. Its now in 1.0 folder and not on my mod list. Should I have removed the first chisel mod? Because its now in the folder with chisel 1.0 now. I haven't started the game yet, I guess I will know if I messed up when I do. No  crashes or error messages so far. But do I need unzip it? Because I haven't.

💬 PtahAuthor, Mar 15th 2022 at 10:48 AM

DX65 1.1.0 would adds extrusion, which is what would let you make pipes - like cut the block down to a single plane, chisel out your shape with the chisel, then shift+right click to extrude that shape making a pipe (or whatever)

💬 DX65, Mar 15th 2022 at 6:06 AM

I am confused. Is this update from few days back? I don't remember it making pipes before. This will be so much easier in making pipes except maybe the curved part.

💬 DX65, Mar 12th 2022 at 8:07 PM

@QPTECH no problem I understand sorta, as far as I know there is coding limitations unless you're smart enough to know how to change them. I would almost do anything for decent brown or bark texture chisel block for brown or tree stuff.

💬 PtahAuthor, Mar 12th 2022 at 6:23 PM

DX65 I can't do much with the vanilla chisel but have been pondering undo in my own tools.
RayTC thanks!

💬 DX65, Mar 12th 2022 at 5:34 PM

I am going to check out this mod. Thanks for making it. One thing I wish chisel did have is a history or undo button for accidentally broken blocks in creative. There is nothing more annoying as chiseling something for hours and losing the chisel block due to a mistake.

💬 RayTC, Mar 12th 2022 at 3:44 PM

This'll make big chiselwork so much easier, love it.
