TL;DR Description: Gameplay improvements/changes that keeps close to vanilla and works server side. Build/Upgrade 153 shapes out of several building materials! Variant block that includes ladders, bars, trussings, ibeams, catwalks, all in one! Block shape selection fits on one page! Localization updates. Pick up Lanterns/”good” Tires. And quite a lot more! See README for full details.
Everything is XML only, so it pushes to clients from servers!

Known Bug: When applying this update over a previous version of his mod, you will have a weird situation with your catwalk railings blocks. They will be replaced with a different block and you will be unable to place a new “railing” block in that spot. Could be other workarounds, but for the moment he found going into GOD mode (if an option for you), go into the terrain/wall and rebuild the catwalk with railings where they are intended to go to “replace” the hidden error. Maybe you could also “clear” that section if you have the admin permission.
