Pane In The Glass


Pane In The Glass (PITG) is a small mod that provides glass panes aligned with the edge of blocks. Since vanilla glass panes are aligned with the center of blocks, they are not compatible with doors and may not meet the aesthetic needs of builders.

PITG glass panes come in three varieties: Single, Dual, and Horizontal. Each of the pane varieties have in-world styles based on how they are placed. For Single and Dual panes, looking at the edge of a block (not the corners), straight panes will be placed. If you target the corners of a block, the corner style is placed. The Glazing Tool can be used to rotate panes to their alternate styles. Horizontal panes, like Minecraft slabs, have an upper and lower style. Again, the Glazing Tool can be used to swap between these.

All three pane varieties come in clear and 36 colors from three families. The standard stained glass panes have the distinctive Minecraft glass pane texture, Plain have the same color without any edge detail, and Tinted with only a hint of color.

Single and Dual panes can be waterlogged. Unlike vanilla glass panes, there is no air space between the water and panes, eliminating the problem with fish getting stuck in the void zone.

Glazing Tool

The Glazing Tool has three possible modes: Rotate, Unbreakable, and Break. Unbreakable and Break are disabled in the config by default. Unbreakable allows you to make PITG glass panes be unbreakable (bedrock hardness) for pack and map creators. Break allows you to sneak-use (SHIFT-Right Click by default) to break PITG glass panes as if the Glazing Tool had the Silk Touch enchantment. To change modes, use the Glazing Tool while not targeting a block. The Glazing Tool will change shape or show an enchantment effect based on the current mode and the tool tip for the tool will show the mode.

Glass Pane Table

While it is possible to transform glass panes between styles in the crafting grid, it can be a bit tedious. The Glass Pane Table allows direct transformation between compatible class panes. While in your hand, PITG glass panes will show their variant with a 1 or 2 letter code in the upper left corner: S for single, D for dual, and H for horizontal with P for plain, T for tinted and no second letter for stained.
