MoreMaterials is a clever plugin, which allows you to create and install your own custom blocks and items. It includes an incredibly simple to use editor (with various difficulty/complexity levels) to create your own custom shapes quickly and easily. It also includes a system to easily share your custom creations!
How to Use?
MoreMaterials is installed just as any other plugin would be. You simply download the latest version, and drag it into your Plugins folder. Included with each version is an example .SMP file, the file format used to add custom blocks. More does not have a server-side config.yml file. All of the custom block / item properties are defined within the SMP package files themselves.

MoreMaterial Example Packages
What is a SMP Package?
SMP packages are a compressed file, saved as a .smp extention. This zip file typically will contain these types of files:
- .shape - This file stores the typical design of a custom block.
- .obj - This is a more advanced design file for a custom block or item.
- .png - This file stores the texture that is applied to the custom block or item.
- .yml - This file stores all the information regarding the custom block or item.
Below are a few example files for creating your own custom SMP packages.
Below is a Complete SMP Example Package of a hanging light.

Design Files & Editors
MoreMaterials SMP packages can youse two types of shape files for specifying the design of a custom block, .obj and .shape. The following link can provide you with a Free Editor to handle the creation of .shape files. The .obj file types are typically from a program such as Cinema 4D Studio.
