Glass is awesome - however...!
« on: August 11, 2012, 08:53:00 am »
Hi guys, glad to see glass blocks in the game now!!! :D

Two things with them though...are we going to see them in various shapes as well (a la frame blocks)? And also, would it be possible to make them slightly more transparent like most glass IRL - I feel like I am looking through those frosted blocks you find in restaurants :P

Still great to see them in the game - we've had GREAT updates over the last while and the game is so much more stable for me now....keep up the awesome work!!!

I agree that they need to be more transparent.

We will be making a few changes to them as we update the game. Different shapes, more colors will happen. Transparency is a bit more difficult to make modular but we'll see what we can do. ;)

I really like the black glass as it is, I love those little hexagons and the colour that makes it look like bulletproof glass

I'd like both glass as it is, and actual window glass with frames. Similar to the window frames we already have only with glasses planels stuck in them.

I agree with Snowdragon, the Black Glass is significantly less disruptive to vision than the other colors, and I quite like it.

Do you think in the future you can code glass that auto-darkens when exposed to bright light? :P

I think the saturation on the colored glass just needs to be toned down a smidge, but other than that I love it. I do have a request though. If you do add more colors, could they be a little more "lazerey" colored? For example-

It was 1997, everything looked like that. Well maybe not everything. Just the awesome stuff.

Hmmm to neon for 1997. Probably 1984.

No, it was the late 90s. Believe me, I was glued to every issue of Lego Magazine that came out. Sometimes literally.

Haha, yea me too. (Well, not literally.) Remember the fan submissions page? That was always my favorite part. I loved seeing all the ideas people would come up with.

Minifig legs used as giant robot fingers? Brilliant.

Tip- put black glass behind the colored glass viola one way glass.
