For instance, you can still craft stained blocks but now you can craft multiples up to 8 at a time. Just place the blocks to be dyed in the same crafting table surrounding a single piece of dye. This allows for gathering dyed materials at a much faster rate.
The same technique can be applied using blocks of slimeballs to make sticky pistons.
And now you can craft stairs with a much simpler recipe as well as using far less materials. Glass bottles can also be crafted with either glass panes or glass blocks. Panes yield 3 and blocks yield 8 bottles.
