Glass is one of the most important decorative details of any building in Minecraft. There are many different options for these items, but the developers felt that this was not enough. Therefore, with the release of version 1.17 of the game, we decided to further diversify the types of glass by adding the so-called “Tinted Glass”.
And since tinted glass in Minecraft is a completely new item created from new resources, many players need a detailed guide. So, if you are one of those players who are starting to learn the game or update 1.17, we recommend that you check out this guide. The material contains detailed information on all the most important details of tinted glass.
Tinted glass Minecraft: block guide
What is tinted glass? To begin with, it is worth knowing that the peculiarity of this glass is that it does not let light particles pass through it. Otherwise, it is an ordinary decorative block used to create a special interior. In addition, tinted glass is a hard block, can be stacked in stacks of 64, and looks quite dark on its own.
In addition, other mobs are not able to see the character through tinted windows. The developers made sure that the tinted glass for them was the same opaque glass as any boards or cobblestones.
Last but not least, tinted glass blocks can be topped with stairs, beds, scene layers, lights, levers, buttons, rails, pressure plates, and red dust. In addition, if tinted glass blocks are next to each other, then they will not be noticed.
How to make tinted glass in Minecraft?
To create tinted glass blocks, you still need regular glass, but this is only a part of the crafting ingredients. In addition to ordinary glass, you will also need to acquire 4 pieces of amethyst. As for the recipe, it looks like this:
What to destroy?
First of all, you should know that tinted windows, like regular options, are the same fragile blocks. Therefore, in a fairly short time, they can be quickly destroyed not only with the help of some tool, but even with the help of a hand. On the other hand, the key difference is that after the destruction of the tinted glass options, it is the blocks that will fall out.
How to get tinted glass in the game through the admin panel?
You can not waste time looking for the necessary materials to create tinted glass, but simply use the administrator mode with the appropriate command. As a result, you can get items in unlimited quantities, but before that, we recommend that you make sure that cheats are allowed in the world. Otherwise, you will have to create a new world where cheats are allowed. One way or another, the instruction in any case will look like this:
- You should start by opening the developer mode, where you can register a command – you can do this using the English “T” button.
- After clicking on the screen, a translucent window will immediately open with the line below – in it you need to write the command “/give @p minecraft:tinted_glass” .
- And in the end, it remains only to press the “Enter” key, so that the character will receive tinted glass with the help of the command.
But there are a couple more important details. Firstly, each command in Minecraft is mandatory without using quotes. Secondly, to obtain any number of tinted glass blocks, you should put a “Space” after the command and indicate the number. For example, you can write “/give @p minecraft:tinted_glass 64” – as a result, the character will receive a whole stack of these items, but the number can be changed to any other.
Thirdly, sometimes it is impossible to register a command, as well as use the administrator mode, but in this case there is a way out – this is a command block. Install it, write the following command already inside it, and it will activate by itself. This will happen at the moment when the signal coming from the red stone reaches the block.
Secrets and tips
- For tinted glass blocks, there are other color options, and not just the standard one. Therefore, if you wish, you can make any version of colored glass from the available vanilla colors.
- In one of the updates, when tinted windows were first added, these blocks under certain conditions literally suffocated mobs. However, this error was later discovered and corrected.
One thing can be said for sure – tinted glass blocks are an excellent decorative block. With the release of update 1.17, players have a lot of opportunities, and even elementary new options for glass blocks greatly increase the number of ideas.
