When I place glass walls, it shows the outline of every glass block. I see you-tubers like DanTDM or PopularMMOs have glass walls that look like one big glass block, with no block outlines. How do I get the glass without outlines?

  • In vanilla, (with cheats) there is a block called Minecraft:barrier, which is completely clear and isn't breakable in survival. It is not a transparent block, but it can be a good substitute for Optifine. – Rainbow Dash Jul 25 '15 at 23:44

I assume you mean something like this:

AFAIK, you can only do this with a mod called Optifine:

  1. Close Minecraft and the Launcher.
  2. Go to the download page and download Optifine HD Ultra for the MC version you are using.
  3. Open the .jar file you just downloaded (using java!) and click install.

When it is finished, close that and open Minecraft. There should be a profile called "Optifine". Select it and click play. All of your glass blocks will be changed to look like in the first screenshot.

  • Good first answer! I took the liberty of formatting it a into a list to make it a bit easier to read. You can always edit it again if you don't like it. You could even roll back to a previous versions via the version history by clicking on "edited X ago". – MrLemon Jul 23 '15 at 8:15
  • It might be noteworthy that Optifine does change some other things as well, but most things can be turned off in the options menu if you only need the connected textures. – MrLemon Jul 23 '15 at 8:17

Aside from texture pack possibilities, there are two different types of glass in the stock game -- Glass, and Glass Pane. One looks like a window with an outline, the other looks more like a wall of glass.

You can create 16x Glass Pane using 6x Glass and a Crafting Table.

    Just to add to this: The Stained Glass varient ( minecraft.gamepedia.com/Stained_Glass ) makes the glass less translucent, but also a softer look between borders. The frosted varient as well is almost as clear as normal, but greatly hides the boards and whitestreaks though the glass itself. – NBN-Alex Jul 22 '15 at 21:39
