Glenn's Gases 1.5.0 is now out! This update is for Minecraft 1.7.2 only and features two new gases and a huge amount of small changes. Have look for yourself!

  • Added several new fields in the Configurations and renamed some.
  • Replaced the Glowstone Shard reaction with the Dust Cycle. Also removed the Glowstone Shard from the creative tab.
  • Added Snapdragon and Primitive Respirator.
  • Added Rusted Iron Ore and Rusted Iron Block.
  • Added Black Damp and Chlorine Gas.
  • Void Gas is now pipeable and can be extracted from Bedrock. Bedrock also emits Void Gas differently, and the Void Gas is less tolerant to light.
  • Added a slowness effect to some gases, and altered the properties of some gases.
  • Increased the light range of Lantern With Torch.
  • Fixed major client/server sync issues with Glowstone Shards.
  • Added a custom death message for asphyxiation.
  • Added proper step sounds to various blocks.
  • Gas Pipes, Gas Pumps and Gas Collectors that are attemping to fill empty space with gas have a possibility of doing so even if a gas is in the way.
  • The grill of the Gas Furnace now indicates its temperature, and the temperature will also be properly indicated in the GUI. Also fixed its inventory graphic.
  • Gas Lanterns can now connect to pipes and feed off gas from them.
  • Gases inside Gas Pipes will now ignite when the pipe is exploded.
  • Changed rendering of various blocks to look better when being broken.
  • Blindness now goes away more quickly.
  • Gas now generates in less frequent, but bigger Gas Pockets which may or may not consist of several small subpockets. Should increase performace by a bit.
  • Gas Clouds may or may not consist of several subclouds. Should increase performace by a bit.
  • Electric Gas will now only emit sparks when a living entity is nearby. The sparks will no longer hurt living entities through obstacles.
  • Gas Pipes can now generate in small clusters underground.

For those of you who are still stuck on 1.6.4 and 1.6.2, there is a hotfix available for two small issues.

  • Fixed the world generation Configurations and made it possible to have a chance to generate instead of an amount to generate.
  • Fixed corrosive gas causing crashes when trying to corrode certain blocks.

Also, I have compiled a lot of information about Glenn's Gases on the newly released Information Database. Have a look there if there is something you want to know!

Hello, everyone.

I thank you all for being patient. I've recently picked up developing the mod again, and I am very sorry for the lack of progress. I work in bulks based on what I find interesting at the time. I reached a point where modding was not entertaining anymore, and entered a bulk of mixed C++ coding and gaming (for those interested: I've been working on that Minecraft-ish clone I have mentioned earlier, and have been playing TF2 and Binding of Isaac). Now I have reentered a modding phase and I can guarantee that I will push out at least one update with a decent amount of content. It will, however, as mentioned long ago only be for Minecraft 1.7.2.

I will, as always, remain a little secretive about the upcoming features, but I can inform you there will be at least 2 new gases, and some general fixes, hopefully BOP compatibility as well.

Glenn's Gases is now out! This is an update that brings the features of Glenn's Gases 1.4.4 over to Minecraft 1.6.4 and Minecraft 1.6.2. There are also a few minor tweaks and fixes, so please update your 1.7.2 version as well. Along with the update comes a new version of the Gases Framework, 1.0.3.

This is the last release of Glenn's Gases for Minecraft 1.6.4 and Minecraft 1.6.2 (as long as it doesn't turn out super unstable). Glenn's Gases for 1.7.2 and up will be the main branch of development from now on. What do you want me to change or add in the future? Submit your suggestions!

  • Fixed gas lantern crafting crash.
  • Fixed lanterns again, hopefully for the last time!
  • Pumps were slightly tweaked.
  • Other minor changes.

Glenn's Gases 1.4.4 is now out! Currently it is only available for Minecraft 1.7.2, but it's coming to 1.6.4 and 1.6.2 soon. Future versions of Glenn's Gases after 1.4.4 will only be available for 1.7.2. Along with the update comes an update to the Gases Framework, version 1.0.2.

  • Coal ore now acts like a normal ore (drops XP).
  • Changed death messages to lightning and glowstone shards.
  • Steam is now much lighter and rises more quickly.
  • Block IDs are no longer configurable in 1.7.2 for obvious reasons.
  • Completely revamped the update checker. NOTE: The new update checker will save some data in your configuration folder. You may disable the update checker to avoid this.
  • Piping now better. I won't go into detail, but it's pretty much just less bugs.
  • Pumps can now synchronize with, and haste each other. They can also explode on overload.
  • Some items and blocks now render differently in a player's hand, in the inventory, or as a dropped item.
  • Bottles will be placed differently in your inventory when interacting with a gas tank.
  • Lanterns no longer break instantly, and should be generally fixed... Again.
  • Gas tanks now have some wibbly wobbly physics. It can be disabled in the configurations.
  • Added a new field in the configuration file for removing the gas igniting effects of some blocks.
  • Changed the names of filled samplers and gas bottles.
  • Changed gas rendering to work with the new transparency rendering in 1.7.2.
  • Smoke from fires can now be disabled in the configurations.
  • Fixed fatal bug where glowstone shards could completely break a multiplayer world.
  • Fixed fatal bug where the game would crash upon a gas furnace being emptied by a hopper.
  • Fixed flashing tank graphics.

I'm back! Sorry for the inactivity, I've been lazy. Glenn's Gases is in the final stages of being moved to Minecraft 1.7.2. This update will also feature a few changes and bugfixes, which will be mentioned upon release.

While Glenn's Gases 1.4.4 will be available for Minecraft 1.7.2 and up, it will not be available for 1.6.2 or 1.6.4 unless this is heavily requested.

Future plans: Revising the interaction between the nether gases! I promise something far more interesting than glowstone shards.
