Brick-a-Brac Mod proves to be a very intriguing mod with function of adding a variety of decorative blocks to the game. This mod features interesting things including bricks, small bricks and panels. It’s worth mentioning that these bricks have some outstanding properties such as hardness and blast resistance and much more.
Mod blocks (creative-only, unless you have the proper mods):
For the builder’s convenience, the bricks mostly have the same properties as Stone Bricks, including hardness and blast resistance, as opposed to the vanilla storage block which is much harder to mine as well as far more expensive. The exceptions to this are dirt and quartz bricks, both of which are as soft as their respective materials. All bricks except for dirt must be broken with a pick (any pick will do), while dirt bricks act just like regular dirt: you don’t need a tool to drop them, but a shovel works faster.
Precious Bricks: Eight stone bricks in a circle around one unit of whatever it is you want to use. For now, this can be: Dirt, Coal, Iron, Gold, Emerald, Diamond or Quartz. This recipe produces eight bricks, essentially only using the ingot in the process. This recipe supports Forge’s Ore Dictionary, meaning you can convert Precious Bricks between one another as well as using them in any crafting recipes that may require them (in theory).
Small Precious Bricks: Any one Precious Brick can be crafted down into a Small Precious Brick. Small Bricks can be broken down further into smooth Panels, which can then be crafted back into the large Bricks. Small Bricks and Panels are, of course, identical to their counterparts, except with a different texture. They should all also be oreDicted, so you can convert them to other bricks without needing to craft them back first.
