uCars

31 - Use any block for a car roof

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?
Add the ability to enable and configure a block to be displayed for the cockpit/driver seat of the minecart.
This will add a much needed ability to further improve the aesthetics of uCars, without resorting to using other plugins and a host of messy console commands to do the deed.

Please provide any additional information below.
NBT editing allows addition of any block to be displayed a given distance above the minecart. This can be done globally to all carts, or even on an individual cart basis.

Examples:
1) put glass block above the minecart to make it look like it has a glass top.
2) a halfslab to make it look like a convertible
3) creative editing of block + minecart textures = unlimited car designs.

Features are amazing, now lets make it LOOK amazing as well!

    I have been very busy, sorry. For gameblade.net I am trial-ing the idea as a paid cosmetic enhancement, but will set a basic toggle in the uCars config for you non-developers. If you can make plugins, reply back and I can show you how to do it yourself. :) (so you can monetise it etc)

    Hows progress on this? I just realized I made this request back in March. Been busy since.

    Yes, that is a block of glass. It's just how windows look on that particular resource pack. Hopefully you didn't run into any snags on the way.

    Thanks for the approval! I made no effort to dress up the resource pack in this screenshot, but imagine if you spend some time editing the texture...

    Sadly for plugins the code is totally different and is a slightly hack-ish CB thing, but I can get it done soon? :)

    I really wonder what that looks like. I also think its good for identifying the cars.

    Looking forward to this.

    I came here to make the same recommendation...

    Before using uCars, one of my players had a car dealership where he'd sell custom cars. He would use the summon command as seen below to create a minecart with a custom block above the player's head while sitting. Players miss that feature, as it made identifying their cars very easy.

    /summon MinecartRideable ~ ~ 2 {CustomDisplayTile:2,DisplayTile:35,DisplayData:1,DisplayOffset:32}

    DisplayTile:35 = Wool DisplayData:1 = Orange DisplayOffset:32 = Height above the minecart the wool is placed.
