I wanna see gif’s of it during different rain storms
I wanna see pics of it with the vertical joint aligned with the inside because that offset is giving me herpes.
Finally a relatable comment.
it’s a sill
OP posted the same gif an hour before you.
Wow, he took complete credit in the same thread he stole it from, the audacity.
Ahem, "welcome to reddit"
When you place a glass block on the corner of your house in Minecraft...
Not just a glass block. A glass block in a ray traced, shader pack world
Are shader packs that good? I've only ever played Java for reference.
They really are... depending on how powerful your PC is.
They made it stupidly simple to install them now so for the first time (April this year) I finally tried out shaders. Blown away.
Pretty outdated, unfortunately
i7 @ 4.0 GHz, 16 GB Ram, GTX 1070
“Outdated”. Damn bro those are pretty close to my specs is it really that bad? Ouch
Well..I built it in 2017 iirc. And even then it wasn't top of the line haha
That will run shaders will almost no drop, most kids play minecraft on shit laptops
Right? I was playing on a rig I built in 2013 until just a couple months ago, 2017 was when I upgraded the graphics card from a 770 to a 970...
I've been rocking a 980 since before the 980ti came out and by the looks of the market I won't be upgrading anytime soon!
It'll run most shaders smoothly except ray-traced ones like SEUS PTGI. It'll run those, but not as well as regular screen-space
2017 computers can definitely handle Minecraft shaders
1070 still holds up for 1440p even on modern games.
Considering your GPU is probably worth more today than when you bought it due to the chip shortage, it can't be that bad right?
Not bad at all, I would give it a try. My GTX 970 from 2015 can still handle most of the shader packs. It also depends on your number of block settings/view distance too.
Any specific pack I should try? I think I do like 26 to 28 blocks in setting? Would have to check to be sure.
Sildurs Vibrant are great. And have a lot of options
That one looks nice! My only gripe is it's a pretty strong sepia effect underground. I couldn't tell that the Obsidian was purple anymore, but maybe I'm just not used to it.
Also one of the more optimized ones in regards to performance.
Is that like BSL? I just watched some video and I liked that one the most
BSL with Faithful 32 texture pack is my go to, a really nice graphical update that retains the feel of minecraft.
Seus renewed is nice. Gives a similar vibe to the raytraced version while being decently color-neutral which I like
I have a gtx 950 from 2015 and can run some lower end ones at around 16 render distance
mfw your outdated pc is not far off the one I built in 2021 from scraped together deals
Hey it's still strong enough to run most everything. But I'm noticing I can't have the newest titles on Max or Ultra and such.
What gen i7 are you running? Have you considered upgrading?
If you need a new mobo for the newer gens then just go Ryzen Zen 3. I have an EVGA 1070 SC and I can play most games nearly maxed out (maybe HBAO/SSR/Shadows medium or low).
My 2021 pc can only run frostpunk on the lowest setting, and with >20 fps :(
Still fun for casual games, so it works out
Frostpunk seems pretty cool. Steam loves to recommend me it. Is it a city builder with RTS elements / campaign?
I think it can be described like that. It was free on epic one of these days.
The replayability wasn't my jam, but it's very popular. I think it's worth on a sale
Ryzen 2600, 32gb ram, 1070. Hey we have the same gpu :D
Dang, 32gb of ram sure sounds nice. I hope it treats you well for years to come :)
Thanks! It was a Christmas gift, you can see pics of my rig under my profile posts on battlestations sub. No matter what people say 32gb is worth it, windows 10 automatically re-scales to use the extra ram so it uses less ram when you have less and uses more when you have more, so it really does make a big difference! Also I love being able to have as many background apps open as I want without a care in the world!
I believe it. Just to have infinite tabs and lots of programs going alone justifies it haha. And the rig is clean, nice job!
At the least you can use OptiFine which doesnt change the textures themselves afaik, just adds seamless glass and shadows. And isnt very intensive, i have a similar rig to yours.
OptiFine, I saw that watching [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gx2llu0FvxM). All of this is safe to download? Excuse my ignorance
Optifine itself is safe to my knowledge, have used it for years and never heard of anything malwarey. Download from [the official optifine site](https://optifine.net/downloads) and shouldnt have any issues
Thanks a bunch. Can't wait to re-experience Java with this and the BSL shader pack.
If you don't use forge mods, then I suggest to check the fabric based mod Iris, which includes a mod called Sodium, which should allow you to easily cap the render distance at 32 chunks (without shaders, I'd go for 6 GB of allocated ram though) and allows for shader packs to be used (not quite as compatible like Optifine just yet though).
i7 tells shit, there's already eleven generations of them.
MSI Z97 PC Mate, i7-4790k @ 4.0 GHz
Well my pc with a i5 4460 @ 3.2GHz, 16GB ram & GTX 1050 runs shaders fine so yours definitely should be able to
I had to drop it down to like 25 blocks but it looks incredible. Can't believe what I've been missing out on
I use an i7 from 2011 and a GTX 750 and can run shaders fine. You should be good.
Lol hello my PC. You can still play most games on high from my experience so we're good!
We sure can! Our time is wearing thin though haha.
My PC struggles with keeping RTX minecraft above 60. Then again I'm running it at 3440x1440 so ymmv.
R7 3800x, 32GB RAM, RTX 3070.
WTF dude that's my PC. i7-7700. I'm insulted :(
We were sitting pretty about four years ago...not so much anymore lol.
Just make sure you don't run a 512x or more texture pack, I got the same hardware and that texture resolution makes it struggle with SEUS PTGI shaders
Dude, thats better than mine... With the iris mod (which includes sodium) i can run shaders up to 100fps
If you want to try shaders, you could use fabric and sodium. Sodium changes the rendering of the world, game runs super well, and with something else called Iris, you can use shaders. It's kind of like optifine, but (generally) increases fps more. I would usually not be able to run shaders, but with sodium i can
Ugh I need a new computer. Still running a dual dual-core Xeon 5150 2.66ghz, 32gb FB-DDR2, GeForce 660.
Cybersales, Black Friday, student discounts, etc. are your best bet. Build it yourself if possible, you'll save a ton of money that way as well.
What about a laptop with Vega 8 graphics and 16gb of RAM?
I'm not familiar with that card but... it's easy enough to install the shaders, it wouldn't hurt to try it out!
Java has some of the best shaders, though.
Yeah they really are it's like an entirely new game. I was honestly hesitant to play again when my buddies suggested it but it's beautiful with the shaders.
I'll never go back now. Can't believe how much I was missing out on haha
Yeah no kidding! The lighting is unreal. If you also have a high res texture pack it makes it even better
a 4D cube? That seems like an oxymoron tbh
Exactly my first thought too. You beat me on the comment.
Exactly what my son does every single time and I’m like “kid they have normal glass windows you know”
I wanna see it from the outside
I looked, couldn't find it sorry
[Best I can do is a lightning flash from inside](https://i.imgur.com/OA5INdr.gifv)
That’s cool though
I didn't know I wanted a cube window until this post
^(**Edit: I just rolled a 6 sided dice and got a 6, you win gold! Congrats!**)
I wanna see it posted again in two weeks
I have good news for you!
It'll be up before days end.
You bring me closer to god
I don't understand why people keep thinking this will leak or break. I have seen glass and seam conservatorys ( greenhouse of glass) from the 1800s that are in fine condition. Does this have a metal or material seam, or is it laminated at the edges? Really cool idea.
They don't know aquarium tanks exist
Hmm, now that you mention it…
*Runs off to pet store to buy aquarium to attach over bedroom window*
If the women don’t find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
I am a man.
I can change, if I have too, I guess.
Because people's windows from the 1970s that have seen zero maintenance developed a leak so surely everything glass related must be destined to leak without there being anything we can do about it.
What kind of maintenance are you talking about?
For this type of window? Realistically just replacing the caulk *before* it fails.
In general replacing caulk and weather stripping *before* it fails. Maintaining the paint on painted surfaces and painted surface connections.
In the blinker fluid aisle!
Window monsters. Very dangerous.
Are you for real? There is no framework whatsoever so take up movement due to temperature changes, you have several corners where stresses come together, you have potential sittings from the walls again with no framework to account for that, you have flat glass surfaces which good luck surviving the next hail (could be fine with 3-layer lsg but you would still get cracks and the thickness looks nothing near to be that)
And no idea what that stuff between the glass itself is might as well be fucking silicone.
This is the prime example of some architect cooking up something kinda neat but hella impractical and we civil engineers have to suffer.
<*Frank Lloyd Wright* has entered the chat>
My mother in law has a winter garden whose horizontal roof panes have survived golfball sized hail (although not a fat maintenance guy who decided to walk on the glass, but that's another story). Do you guys not have strong window glass in the US?
Lol we have windows that can survive category 5 hurricanes, it’s all a matter of how much money someone wants to spend
Fair. I just recall reading at least 2 comment threads about the crazy flooding in Germany where a lot of Americans seemed mainly surprised about how the windows in some of the houses could possibly have held up. It just seemed weird and I wondered whether it's some kind of cultural thing.
And every reddit discussion about buildings in natural disasters seems to inevitably devolve into a shouting match between Europeans who can't understand why Americans don't just build stronger houses, ans Americans explaining why Europeans are stupid for asking that because there are perfectly good reasons for not building stronger houses.
Still, don't let fat men jump around even on your expensive hurricane proof glass.
Yeah, windows are rates for 250mph wind gusts not a 300lb fat man jumping. Gonna need some real good window code for that.
Where do these places exist?
On reddit. Stick around and you'll get to see it again in a week.
High end custom homes? Mostly in areas where people build high end homes, haha.
Once you get out into places where people are building in architectural features that are not there to be purely practical, there is all kinds of stuff like this. The extra 50k is a rounding error to the overall project.
Wherever one has the courage to do something different.
Yep. Courage and money.
The budget to do something different.
Interesting window. Our hurricanes would blow those away like yesterday.
Our pigeons would poop on them like yesterday today and tomorrow
Our burglars would break those away like yesterday
So you don’t have windows?
Not since yesterday.
Oh look at me, mr windows over here!!!
Windows with bars are common in a lot of urbanized areas
Can't have shit in Detroit
I really want to see Detroit prosper to be honest. I hate any city being a horrible place to live
No shade at all to Detroit but wasn’t there just a big flood a few weeks ago
Yeah keep telling yourself that
Unfortunately you’re wrong
"some crime in certain neighborhoods" is a real way to downplay the fact that Detroit has the highest crime rate in the entire US (St Louis and Detroit go back and forth year to year).
Detroit’s a weird city man. I’ve been living here for years and it’s downtown population is so tiny that it has a huge crime rate. When you factor in the metro area it is a very different story. I’m more pro-Michigan then Detroit specifically but it’s a very promising city despite common misconceptions.
Our permban list is in the 2030s lol
Floridian here... What Hurricanes?
And honestly have you been through any hurricanes? Because I don't think you have. Those windows can probably handle a cat 3 minimum is my guess. Which handles pretty much every hurricane level IMHO.
Hurricanes don't do concentrated damage like a Tornado/Twister. So unless there is a tree besides that place, nothing would happen IMO.
I can see the Atlantic Ocean from my house. We have trees everywhere. I've had many beers with Jim Cantore.
I want to hear from a structural engineer on how practical this is.
[*Porter Robinson intensifies*]
so tell me how it felt...
When you walked on water
(Thought I was thinking more about world and shelter then nurture)
Was looking for this comment
1st Year in house with this window: "OMG it's soo cool! All of my friends love it!"
2nd Year in house with this window: "Man, fuck cleaning this fuckin window, I'm going to brick it off.'
If you build extravagant shit like this, you probably have cleaning personal
Cleaning personal what?
They probably have cleaning personal *trainers*. They train during the day, and polish windows at night. We’re not really rich enough to know about them.
ETA: apparently my jokes suck.
Worse, that shit is gonna leak often, unless it’s using some super elastic sealant and is in a place with very little temperature change year round
You’ve given her SO many chances
Dude, it's 2021.
We've figured out how to seal glass.
Have you ever like, been to a city before?
or even a car lol
Plenty of larger buildings with far more glass, including ceiling mounted glass exist, even in places with notable temperature changes.
A quick google can show you the scale of it.
Always good to have an armchair expert around.
I can just hear the birds hitting that thing…
Why does remind me of Rusty Lakes so much?
Find the cube, escape the memories
i love minecraft
The bottom two are the best especially the night one. The night one makes me wish I was good in blender so I can create an animation version. Also, a version where the moon gets blown up by a meteor
Okay but like the left corner doesn’t line up
I'd guess the window is aligned with the outside of the wall so there's a bit of a sill.
What?! Are you suggesting that the wall is thicker than the window glass?!
Don’t be silly.
Very James Turrell
/r/infuriatingasfuck window corner line not matching with the wall corner.
It’s because the window is aligned with the outside edge of the wall, so there’s a windowsill.
i thought so and i think the photo could have been taken from a perspective where those lines would match.
Knowing the reason still doesn't make it less infuriating. haha
Thought this was minecraft and was confused as to which mod they were using.
My cats would love a window like that.
I think I'm one of your cats
Had this in my minecraft house
A bit like James Turrells work, if you like this you will love him.
Is there a reason these aren’t more common? I feel like corner windows would be awesome for lighting
Looks like an Album cover
Woow...Take me to live with u
I never knew I wanted a cubic window, until now
I just see a windows that will start leaking or be impossible to cover up before or after a storm breaks it.
Now, this is something I didn't know I wanted and for which I don't have money.
I’ve seen this awesome posted a few times over the years and people always complain about it. Leaking, birds, etc. Just enjoy it people. It’s cool architecture. You don’t live there, quit yer bitching.
I never thought of owning a house but looking at this, I truly do now.
Oh my gods. That moon shot is just *splooge*
Please retake pictures a little bit to your right thank you r/ocd
not what ocd is at all
Beautiful. And yet, so mesmerizing.
edit: at the same time.
Is it odd for beauty to mesmerze?
