Issue description

Had a thought when I was spending time making different blockbases

Perhaps a material pack for making different blockbases & their recipes rather efficiently? You provide the normal block, & select a type & it will make Stairs, Slabs, Walls etc from the block using it's properties like Material, sound, hardness, resistance, harvest level, etc. & will make the recipes for each using the block.

New Blockbases such as Pressure Plates, Buttons, Doors & Fence Gates would definitely come in handy with this idea aswell, but not truly necessary to facilitate this

The types would be Stone & Wood

Wood: Crafting Recipes
- Stairs
- Slab
- Fence
- Trapdoor
-? Button
-? Pressure Plate
-? Door
-? Fence Gate

Stone: Crafting & Stone Cutting Recipes (Although Buttons & Pressure Plates would be excluded from Stone Cutting)
- Stairs
- Slab
- Wall
-? Button
-? Pressure Plate

Always spent a massive amount of time with making vast amounts of blocks that have different block bases, so a Material Pack to speed the creation process up would be of great benefit

Issue comments

We do plan new block vases for the future updates and will gradually add more, most of the listed here have tickets for them.

Material packs too, but they are not that high priority as they are not feature limiting, just utility compared to many other requests for true new features.

Imagine you would have to code that ;)

But don't worry, we do plan adding more material pack makers.

That's good to hear that most of these block bases I mentioned are planned, I wouldn't mind making the stairs, slabs, etc individually but the recipes take a decent chunk of time. I suppose I could just copy the JSON over continuously for each one & just change the values ever so slightly.

I wouldn't mind coding it myself, but I get confused too easily when I start working with objects.

(making stairs for over 20 different blocks does get tedious after some time lol)

I want to upvote pressure plates, signs and buttons (because allll of these are important parts of wood sets) but I can't because I don't use github lolz
