TypeTransparent block

The Facade is a Buildcraft item that allows the player to hide piping behind specific block faces, such as hiding piping on the floor behind what appears to be Oak Wood Planks. Facades come in two styles; one which is complete and can be used to block connections, and another with a hole in the middle to allow pipes to pass. Most vanilla blocks can be made into facades, plus a few other blocks from mods. Facades can be placed on all open sides of a pipe.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Facades following the naming convention "Facade: {block name}" where {block name} is the original block it was built from. For example, the Oak Wood Planks facade is named "Facade: Oak Wood Planks."
  • It is possible to obtain uncraftable facades for other blocks, such as furnaces, cacti, rails, or machines by using this command /give 19397 {amount} {data}, where:
{amount} = the quantity desired
{data} = 16 x [item block id] + 4.
  • For example, to obtain one facade of a cactus (item ID 81), the formula is 16 x 81 + 4 = 1300, so the command is /give 19397 1 1300.
