Hanging signs

I don’t seem to be able to finish this. Today I added hanging sings that you put on the ceiling.

And that’s how the sign editing interface looks like:

This opens when you tap a sign. I am thinking of adding some sort of “lock” functionality to prevent further edits, Or maybe only one edit will be allowed? After that you have to break the sign and place another?

I can’t post how signs look with colored text on because I removed the code that does it and hardcoded the dark color in the texture, so that the text can have some noise on it. Noise makes it look better.

There’s a thunderstorm down here now, better save everything before it goes up in smoke :-)

      Also in the interface you should put the amount of characters they have left next to every line so people can think out their messages while typing it out. Whenever i play minecraft i get frustrated cuz i want to put something in one line or something but then i don’t have enought room

    You’ve done the a great job as usual! The Lock functionality is interesting, you can do so that when you tap the sign, a “edit” pop-up on the sign (like a new button) and you click on this “edit” button to enter editing interface. A sort of double tap to edit. Is you don’t tap it twice, it means that you didn’t want to edit and the pop-up disappear 2 or 3 sec after.

    Is the font for signs composed only with characters a>z and 0>9 + and -?
    May you add some more characters?
    Maybe at least all characters from the wp7 keyboard, giving more flexibility to the player imagination ^^
    Adding smiley as a single character and not just “:” and “)” might increase possibilities.
    But I know it is long and hard to implement as you said when you wanted to create you own font. Btw the are many fonts from minecraft on the internet, could help maybe…
