The Vintage Story mod "Bricklayers" adds useful things and new blocks to build from stones and bricks.

It adds recipes to convert slabs into full blocks, and blocks back to slabs.
There are also recipes to recycle blocks back into individual stones, bricks or shingles.

In the current form this mod does not alter any vanilla recipes.

We hope you enjoy our work,

This mod is currently in an alpha stage - please be careful and make a backup of your world!

The original game has no polished obsidian, and you need to make polished obsidian to make polished obsidian slabs, which you need to polish into the large obsidian bricks. Hence vanilla game had no large obsidian bricks - "large obsidian brick blocks" is a new feature of this mod, too :)

Mixing and matching bricks would be quite difficult to do, as each new mix would need to be a new block or texture. But you can chisel the larger and smaller ones together.

You can even mix completely differnt blocks like large bricks and cobble with the chisel - that is a vanilla feature and the new blocks from this mod support this :)

The last image shows how you can mix 3 different blocks (1 vanilla, 2 new ones) together:

what I meant by older version is the vanilla brick blocks, only with obsidian lol; using the larger bricks before you cut them into the small ones :)

I showed my man the obsidian brick floor (he plays sometimes too) and he said "that's what I always imagined obsidian brick looking like"

btw...that 4th screenshot has me curious; can you mortar individual bricks of different types together somehow? is that a teaser of the future? lol

Glad you like it!

The normal, vanilla texture for obsidian rocks was replaced with a few new variants, because there was only a single variant before, and it needed to look a bit different from the polished version one, esp. in color, as most polished rocks get darker, but obisidian was already almost black before.

However, the vanilla game does not let you polish obsidian, so I'm not sure what you mean by "the large bricks are supposed to make the 'older' version". There where no large obsidian bricks in the game before.

excellent, I now have an obsidian brick floor and love how it looks :)

I am curious whether the large bricks are supposed to be able to make the 'older' version or not but even if not I'm pretty satisfied with the obsidian small bricks

That is soo embarrassing :-/ That's happening when testing in a creative world, another release will be coming shortly.

one step at a time :P you can now make the small stone bricks but can't add mortar to make the brick blocks; when I looked at brick blocks and brick slabs for obsidian, the only way to make them is cutting a block in half for slabs and mortaring two slabs together for the block lol

yay thanks :) mebbe you could do something with kimberlite too ;)

edit awesome to see the unused stones get some love <3

Hello Lisabet, oops, you are right, sorry about that! A new release will come shortly, fixing this. Thank you for your feedback :)

missed a step somewhere with the obsidian; I can polish it and cut it into slabs but not into bricks :( so I can't make the brick blocks

Thank you for your comment :)
Sure, but then you could either not recycle a single stair block, or need multiple recipes for recycling, which might be confusing for the user.

Since this mod is about convenience and saving time, only secondary about saving resources, we have decided to keep the recipes this way. Eventually we might want to change some of the vanilla recipes to be more consistent in the shape (cobble slabs vs. brick slabs f.i.) and the number of items you input and get as output, and then you wold also have matching amounts when recycling blocks.

Instead of loosing some resources, you could make recipes with multiple items, like "2x stairs = 7x stones"
