Glass Panes are transparent blocks which can be used as an alternative to glass blocks.

Obtaining[edit]

Glass panes can only be obtained by mining them using a tool with silk touch, or it will drop nothing.

Natural generation[edit]

Glass panes generate naturally as windows in Villages.

Usage[edit]

Glass panes are much more efficient than glass, as they can make windows of 267% the area of glass blocks, because only 6 glass blocks are required to make 16 glass panes.

Glass panes, along with iron bars, can be used in wireless redstone setups due to a block update glitch.

Placement[edit]

If placed without anything on the sides, they will appear in the shape of a Cross.png from the top, but when something is placed on the sides, it will become flat or turn into a Curve.png shape or a T junction.png shape depending on the items surrounding it. The collision box is identical to the shape of the pane, allowing both items and players to fit through 2x2 glass pane holes.

Trivia[edit]

  • If two glass panes are placed with one empty space in between, a spider (which is 2 blocks wide) can still fit through.
  • Glass panes are called "thinGlass" in the game's code, but all glass pane texture files within minecraft.jar begin with the prefix "glass_pane" (e.g. "glass_pane_top.png").
