Add Custom Flags to Minecaft with this Mod (1.6.2)
The Custom Flags mod for 1.6.2 adds new flags to the game. These flags can be designed using the flag designer where you can import pictures, draw flags, and insert shapes. These flags move in the wind, can be hung vertically and horizontally, and can be used on a server if it is installed.
Flag poles are created by placing 3 wooden logs or 3 iron ingots in a line. Any kind of wood can be used
Flag poles can be then placed on any block. If you place a flag pole on the top or bottom of a block, you will be able to hang a horizontal flag, if you place it on the side of a block, you will be able to place a verticalflag.
Flags can be made with any color wool:
Flags may be attached to any flag pole by right clicking a flag pole while holding a flag. In survival/hardcore modes, this will consume the flag, in creative mode, no flag is consumed. Each flag pole block can have a maximum of 4 flags
attached to it. Each flag placed after the first will be placed after the previous flag. Right clicking on an flag pole with empty hands will remove the most recently attached flag and place it in the players inventory.
Flags attached to a flag pole will blow in the wind.
Right clicking while holding a flag will open the flag designer gui. The GUI supports a 32×32 image. A color chooser is included on the right of the screen and drawing tools on the left The tools include:
Pen Tool: Draws a single pixel at the current mouse location when the left mouse button is down
Holding shift will draw a straight line from the last location clicked to the current mouse location.
Rectangle Tool: Draws a rectangle with the corners of the last 2 clicked locations.
Holding shift will force the rectangle into a square.
Oval Tool: Draws an oval with the corners of the last 2 clicked locations.
Holding shift will force the oval into a circle.
Flood Fill: Clicking the left mouse button will change all of the connected pixals of the same colour to the currently selected colour.
Holding shift while clicking will fill the whole 32×32 area with the colour selected.
Text Tool: Allows the user to write text at the most recently clicked location.
Pressing enter saves the text.
Colour Picker: Clicking will set the current colour to the colour of the selected pixal.
Save: Opens a save dialog to allow the user to save the current design to their filesystem for later use.
Load: Opens a load dialog to allow the user to use an image on their current file system as their current flag. Images will be scaled to 32×32 and converted to 12bit ARGB before being drawn on the canvas.
Load Section: Opens a load dialog to allow the user to use a section of an image on their current file system as their current flag. After selecting the desired file, a user will be asked how many sections they desire in the X and Y
directions (between 1 & 4) and which section they want to use for the current flag. The resulting image will be scaled to 32×32 and converted to 12 bit ARGB colour space.
The OK button will save the design to the currently held flag, pressing escape will close the flag designer without changing the design.
