With the first part of the update scheduled to be released in a few days, this is a great time to take a peek at what's to come. This article will discuss Tinted Glass and all the relevant information that Minecrafters might need to know.
What does Tinted Glass do in Minecraft?
Tinted Glass in Minecraft serves the purpose of blocking light. It is a great item to use in builds that require a dim atmosphere but still need players to be able to see outside.
Tinted Glass works by slightly decreasing the level of light that passes through it. It will also completely block a beacon beam, which is unlike regular glass or colored glass.
The physics of Tinted Glass are similar to the glass block. Both cannot carry a redstone signal, and mobs will not naturally spawn on top of either block.
