I don't know about your other examples but I would really like to try out those stained glass with borders. And in principle I agree with your sentiment, the customizer is a great think with a lot more potential.

If I were to suggest another option then how about adding an optional smoother texture for the concrete blocks.

The customiser isn't just for shoving in hundreds of variations for no reason. You need to justify why you think they should be added. Nothing will get added "because why not".

Out of all the examples I think the only ones that I would probably add are the old torch, and diamond pickaxe.

Ok, I'll take notes.
For the reasons, 1rst, flat or vanilla style can match with the Bedrock edition of PureBDcraft, so less differences between platforms. Then, for glasses, it would be great to have the nostalgia of older versions of minecraft (I often play 1.7.10, and stained glass have borders form the unstained glass). And to match with current version of BDcraft, use the new textures for old things.

This is what i had to say.

And to be honest, I prefer the <=1.15 pig, glass and bookshelf.

In regards to the concrete I feel like a smoother concrete texture would fit a lot better with a modern inspired architecture style, which I personally find hard to build with sphax, I personally don't build much in that style(In large part for the mentioned reason) but as far as I am aware a lot of minecraft players prefer building like that and would probably apreciate such an addition much more.

I LOVE the old torch! That soul version would look pretty amazing. I'm having issues with the Customizer pack sadly. The Orb Clock doesn't appear to work. It's SO cool too! I was super excited to see it in game.

Make sure you're loading the Customiser Addon and the main pack together, with the Customiser above the main pack.

So generally there seems enough want for the old torch style, (it's been requested numerous times over the years since it changed) so I guess I'll add that for the MC1.18 release. Maybe even the older diamond pickaxe.

None of the other suggestions are compelling enough for me to add though, sorry.

  • The bookshelf has never been commented on that I recall;
  • the default anvil shape doesn't add anything, it's not a building block;
  • ladders had no pushback when we changed it, so it doesn't seem like it's much of a big deal;
  • the glass just again, doesn't really add anything... if anything the borders make it pretty ugly;
  • pig, again, no one really mentioned it when it changed and if they did they soon got used to it (villagers are only there because there's been huge pushback with every iteration beside the current one);
  • concrete - I don't know how it could be much smoother...

I personally use the old pig texture in my game. The new eyes... unnerve me. But like with most changes its not that difficult to go into the pack folder and change it myself. Seeing it in the customizer would be convenient but I can live without it.

The old torches would also be cool to see.

I do have both in there, but I’m not sure if the order. I’ll double check today.

Yeah, I actually wish the glass had no borders at all. I find it’s difficult to truly customize your house because of it. You can use all these different wood colours, but your windows always have the same wood borders :(

Yay! I’m excited to see the torch in the next update! Thank you kindly!

Update: Yay, that worked! Thanks again! I had no idea the order mattered for some items, as all the others changed just fine.
