|Welcome to Glass.
Blockland Glass is a general-purpose enhancement
suite focused on extending the community.
Glass primarily features a mod management
system and a chat room and friends system.
Other features include a required client
system, backward compatible preferences,
favorite servers, server previews, and various
enhancements throughout Blockland.
Read on to find out more about Glass in general,
our team, and any future developments...
The Mod Manager allows you to browse, search, and install add-ons without ever exiting Blockland. You’re able to access all add-ons upload directly to Glass, as well as search and download add-ons from the RTB 4 Archive. The Mod Manager also ensures that all of your add-ons are kept up to date, thanks to Support_Updater, and import your old RTB add-ons to be updated to the latest version.
Our social system, dubbed Glass Live, allows you to keep in touch with your friends, chat through public chatrooms or direct message, and join and invite your friends to servers.
We’ve implemented our own preferences system to make up for the loss of RTB preferences. All RTB preferences are automatically imported and available to control, along with some new preference types and optionsrticular.
Glass enables you to preview servers before you join them, viewing the server’s preview image and player list. On top of that, we allow you to mark favorite servers, giving you notifications about the server’s status and allowing you to view and join it from the main menu. Glass also allows servers to have their own custom loading screen images, similar to how maps images worked before shadows and shaders.
The project is forever growing with new ideas and features being developed and tested all the time.
If you have a suggestion, we invite you to join in the conversation here on the forums!

We would also like to give notable mentions for their contributions to McTwist and Greek2Me.
Also, thanks to Mr.LoL for in-game photo assets.
As a team, moving forward we would like to be more open with development and discussion of Glass. We plan to do this by keeping you up to date on what's happening and posting on our website and thread as regularly as we can.
Your feedback is vital to helping improve the service as best we can!

Today is the two-year anniversary of the release of Blockland Glass. To say the least, we've come a very far way. The very first topic was posted two years and four months ago. Just a little trip down memory lane...
The Blockland Glass we have today isn't always what it's been. Over the past 5+ years, I have named a few different (but similar) projects by the same name. The name was originally derived from the core functionality of allowing servers to interact and control GUI elements while you play - a sort of "Glass" screen over your display. This is dated back before Google Glass, so the name was indeed original at the time...
Content coming soon...
