Choose Your Own Flat Terrain Block

In 1.23 you will be able to choose which block should be used to fill the flat terrain in creative mode. Before that it was always grass/dirt, but here’s the new options dialog in 1.23:

You can select a lot of different blocks, including glass or ice. If you have any special requests – give me a shout in the comments.

Here’s how the glass world looks like:

FlatTerrainBlock2

It’s quite disorienting to tunnel inside it, you can see all the surrounding passages. Contrary to expectations, it’s still dark if you make a deep enough cave in the glass. It’s because glass absorbs 1 unit of light, so 16 blocks below gets completely dark.

Here’s how a stone brick world looks like:

I hope this will make it easier for you to create unusual worlds.

More features are still to come in 1.23, including some new electric stuff.
