|Custom Stuff 1
Information presented below this line is outdated syntax or information used for Custom Stuff 1. It will not work with Custom Stuff 2.
Guis are windows in minecraft that you can open, for example, when rightclicking a block. The special interfaces of chests, furnaces, crafting benches, brewing stands, and many others are examples of this in the vanilla game.
There are presently two types of GUIs, one for crafting and one for furnaces. For crafting tables, this can be done with only a .block file and a GUI file. For furnaces, you'll also need to set up a Container file.
To open a gui you use this function, called with the function trigger of your choice:
customstuff.openGui(origin, 'name123'); // This will open the gui of which name attribute is set to "name123".
You only need to change "name123" to the name of the gui you're referencing (see below), leaving the single quotes on each side of it.
Global GUI Attributes
These attributes work the same for all GUIs in Custom stuff to date. See the images in the type-specific sections below for some visual clarification.
Be aware that the only reason you need to change most of these is if you're intentionally altering the layout. Normally, the only things you will want to change are the name and guifile fields, since the basic layouts are already available to you in the customguis folder that Custom Stuff itself creates.
|name||The name of the gui referenced by the openGui function explained above.|
|type||The type of the gui|
|guifile||The GUI image that is displayed when you open the gui. It must be a 256x256 .png file.|
|id||The ID of the gui. Used in Multiplayer. Must be unique, but is different from block and item IDs.|
|width||This is used if your gui is smaller than 256x256. If set this to 100 the game will only use the first 100 pixels (starting at the left border)|
|height||The same as width, but starting at the bottom.|
|resultx / resulty||The X and Y coordinates (respectively) of the upper-left corner of the result slot.|
|upperinvx / upperinvy||The X and Y coordinates (respectively) of the upper-left corner of the upper three rows of the inventory.|
|lowerinvx / lowerinvy||The X and Y coordinates (respectively) of the upper-left corner of the 'hot bar' section of your inventory.|
|stringtext1||A string of text that can be rendered onto the gui. You can increase the number (stringtext2, etc.) to create as many as 16 lines of text.|
|stringx1 / stringy1||The X and Y coordinates (respectively) of the text string. As with stringtext, the number can be increased up to 16 for additional lines of text.|
|stringcolor1||This is the color of the string text in hexadecimal RGB format. (Use colorpicker.com to find values if you're not familiar with the format)|
Crafting GUI Attributes
This attribute is used only for GUIs with one of the Crafting types.
|craftingx / craftingy||Those are the X and Y coordinates (respectively) of top-left corner of the top-leftslot of the crafting field.|
The types of recipes that can be used by this crafting table. For example:
will allow for crafting of all vanilla game recipes, but also those designated with the myCustom category. See recipes.
Example Crafting Table GUI
An example of a crafting table gui (which is also found in you customGuis folder):
name = "defaultcraft4x4"; type = "crafting4x4"; guifile = "customstuff/textures/crafting4x4.png"; id = 61; width = 194; height = 184; resultx = 142; resulty = 44; craftingx = 30; craftingy = 17; upperinvx = 17; upperinvy = 102; lowerinvx = 17; lowerinvy = 160; stringtext1 = "Crafting"; stringx1 = 28; stringy1 = 6; stringcolor1 = 0x404040; stringtext2 = "Inventory"; stringx2 = 17; stringy2 = 90; stringcolor2 = 0x404040;
Furnace GUI AttributesThe following attributes are used only for furnace-type GUIs.
|inputx / inputy||The X and Y coordinates (respectively) of the top-left corner of the 'input' slot (where the item to be cooked/smelted goes).|
|fuelx / fuely||The X and Y coordinates (respectively) of the top-left corner of the fuel slot.|
|cookonguix / cookonguiy||The X and Y coordinates (respectively) of the top-left corner of the progress arrow (on the GUI itself).|
|cookontexturex / cookontexturey||The X and Y coordinates (respectively) of the top-left corner of the progress arrow animation. (The white arrow that's off to the right side by default)|
|cookwidth||The width of the progress arrow animation. This is used by both cookonguix and cookontexturex to determine how wide an area is used in the progress animation.|
|cookheight||The height of the progress arrow animation. This is used by both cookonguiy and cookontexturey to determine how tall an area is used by the progress animation.|
|burnonguix / burnonguiy||The X and Y coordinates (respectively) of the top-left corner of the 'flame' between the fuel and the input (on the GUI itself).|
|burnontexturex / burnontexturey||The X and Y coordinates (respectively) of the top-left corner of the 'flame' animation. (The colored flame that's off to the right side in the default image)|
|burnwidth||The width of the flame animation animation. This is used by both burnonguix and burnontexturex to determine how wide an area is used by the fuel meter animation.|
|burnheight||The height of the flame animation. This is used by both burnonguiy and burnontexturey to determine how tall an area is used by the fuel meter animation.|
- In Custom Stuff 2.2.2 the mouse pointer doesn't display properly in Custom Stuff GUIs making it difficult to navigate. This bug is still present as of Custom Stuff 2.3.5
- A workaround for this is to move your mouse pointer briefly out of the Minecraft window. When you move it back, your mouse pointer should remain visible. For obvious reasons, this does not work when playing in full screen.
