X's Detail Mod

X's Detail Mod adds around 300 parts to your game! These parts are especially useful to detail your creations or build things at micro-scale.
(No, you are not the first one to notice that some parts in this mod look very much like parts in the Modpack Polygons. I've talked with Durf about this. No worries.)

If you feel like you miss a type of part, suggest it in the comments and maybe it will be in the next update! (I cannot guarantee this, though)
All parts can be rotated and placed on every side. Extra detailing abilities!

Slopes (wedges)
The vanilla game only has one slope piece, the wedge, but this mod adds many more!
The sizes range from 1x1 to 1x10. There is also a 2x3 slope.

All slopes are named like this: "S1x4" (for a 1x4 slope).
Some slope parts have an additional number after them ("S1x8:6" for example). That means that it's the 6th block of the part. You can use this for extra detailing or to paint the slope part in multiple colors. An example of this is visible in an image above, where different parts of the slope are painted in dark and light green.

There are many mods that add plates or panels, but none is as extensive as X's Detail Mod. It offers plates in 4 thicknesses (1/2, 1/3, 1/4 and 1/8 block).
Plates are in many different shapes.

The naming of these parts may be a bit confusing, but there's some logic to it if you look closely.
All panels are named like this "P2:fb"
The number is the thickness of the panel. P2 means panels that are half a block thick, P8 means 1/8 of a block. You get it.
Then, the letter "f" is the shape of the block. There are many different shapes. In the image above, all of the available shapes are shown.
Last, "b" means bottom. 'Plates' are all b. "m" means middle, so that can be wing blocks.

"f" has some special combinations, namely:
- fc: Three-way corner block
- fl: Two-way corner block
- fr: Raise from bottom (plate) to middle (wing block)
- fs: Connect two opposite facing plates

Unfortunately, there are some double parts (P1:7b is the same as S1:0). I will not remove those, because some people may already be using them.

Curves (quarter ellipses/circles)
In the base game there is just a single curve pieces, the duct bend, but this mod adds many more!
It's available 22 different sizes. Just search for "E2x3" in the inventory, or replace 2x3 with any size that you need.

You can combine four of the 1x1, 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 and 6x6 parts to make a perfect circle.
If you need circles that have an odd radius, or a circle with an even radius but centered in the middle of a block, check out the circle parts in this mod. (more info below)

Corner parts
Together with the curve parts, there are corner parts. These go well together with the slopes and curves.
There are three different styles of curve parts: triangular, square and elliptical.

In the inventory, search for "C1x1x5", or replace 1x1x5 with any size that you need.

Concave curves
If a corner looks just a little too blocky, you can always use one of the 50 concave corners in this mod to make it look seamless.

You can find them in the inventory under names such as "O1x4" (where you replace 1x4 with the desired size).
If you want a concave curve for panels, try "O1x4p2" (where you replace 2 with the panel thickness you use).

This mod adds circles. All circle parts are centered on a block, so that circles with an even radius can also be placed on bearings.
If you need to make a circle with even dimensions, use 4 curve parts. (above)

Circles can be found in the inventory with names like "R5", which is a circle with a diameter of 5.

Pyramid tips, cones and nose cones
These blocks are always useful in detailing.

You can find them in the inventory with names like "T4e", which means a 4 high elliptical (nose cone) tip. The number indicates the height of the part (1-10), and the letter is for the shape.
- c: Cone
- e: Nose cone (or elliptical cone)
- s: Square (pyramidic)

Block, plate and pipe adaptors
There exist some adaptor blocks to connect plates of different thickness, and plates with pipes.
These can be found with names like "Ap3p8", which connects a P3 plate with a P8 plate.
"Ap3pipe" connects a P3 panel with a small pipe.
There are some more variants.

I hope you have fun using this mod!

@Lillebo777 This is a bug in Scrap Mechanic, just restart your game when it happens. I have had it happen to other mods too.

The detail block, just the simple block is sometimes reflective and sometimes not. And other times it's even glowing. Maybe it's a conflicting block glitch with other mods but i'm not sure.... Looks really ugly on some of my builds.

Other than that the mod's great, keep the great work up! :steamhappy:

Anytime I load a world with it and then close down SM and try to reload the world with this mod it says the error code. Anytime i load a world without this mod its perfectly fine

A thought for some blocks to add how about some blocks that can be used along center lines say your makeing a plane or other vehicle sometimes you want a soft or sharp curve or point so you can make a rounded top the reason this would be helpful is for situations where you can make that symetrical curve or point along the center such as with an odd seat vehicle where your only choice is to use a flat curve or slope from front to back not side to side like you could on an even seat build no matter what we cant have a shape for everything you may want to do but some symetrical blocks would give a few more options
