LittleTiles extends the way you build in Minecraft. It offers little pieces, similar to miniature versions of already existing blocks. These can be used to build whatever you have in mind but with much more details in it. These little pieces (also called tiles) can be combined to form a door, a table, a chair, a ladder or whatever you have in mind.
Performance was one of the major issues. High RAM usage, long chunk update time (causing lag spikes) and overall rendering (lowered FPS) limited the amount of what you could built with it. Eventually I threaded the rendering code and introduced several optimizations to a point where performance isn't a problem anymore.
It is the project of my heart, as it makes my old dreams come true. I meet many people through discord, who enjoyed this mod and shared their builds. I heard about grandparents playing with LittleTiles together with their grandchildren, which was beyond my expectations.
There were times this mod was entirely broken, because I released an update too early or underestimated the time it would require fixing it. I had to structure my vision and setup a plan. Prioritize my tasks, work on known issues, improve performance, sort out limitations, try to implement suggestions made by the community and learn to use GitHub properly.
LittleTiles is built upon a solid foundation, otherwise it would be impossible for me to stabilize it and working on new features. There are still many things to come. This mod reinvented itself several times now and it would do it again and again.
Furthermore, a product needs a good presentation to get popular. Therefore, I worked on trailers and showcase videos.
