Forbidden Windows are flat ornate Chinese-themed building elements consisting of a wine-red lattice and a golden frame. They behave like windows in Creativerse, in terms of being able to auto-connect to other Forbidden Windows (but not to any other windows nor lattices).
These windows were implemented to Creativerse with the "Forbidden City" update R52 on February 14th 2018 and can be used for building purposes, mainly going together with other Chinese-themed items or blocks like Forbidden Window Lattices, as well as for decoration.
How to obtain
Forbidden Windows can be crafted in your Crafting Menu (to be opened by typing "Q" as the default key), but only after the according crafting recipe has been unlocked by claiming the Forbidden City Bundle in the Store for free.
Already crafted Forbidden Windows are included in the Forbidden City Pack and building kits for Chinese-themed Blueprints, but these Item Packs do not unlock nor contain the crafting recipe for this window. Already crafted Forbidden Windows can also be bought with Coins (obtainable via ingame Store) as parts of (customizable) building kits for Blueprints.
Simply obtaining already crafted blocks, windows or other objects will not unlock their crafting recipe though.
How to unlock the crafting recipe
Forbidden Windows are part of the Forbidden City Bundle that was introduced to the Store with update R52 on February 14th 2018, and can only be crafted in the Crafting Menu (to be opened by typing "Q" as the default key) after claiming this Forbidden City Bundle in the Store for free. There is no other way to obtain this crafting recipe.
After claiming the Forbidden City Bundle, the (already unlocked) crafting recipe for this window/lattice will be permanently added to your Crafting Menu, where it will keep being available even on game worlds where the world option "world bound recipes" is enabled.
How to craft Forbidden Windows
To craft 4 Forbidden Windows at a time, you'll need:
- 4 Wood Rods that can be made of most kinds of Wood or Logs (except for Corrupted Wood) in a Processor
- 1 (block of) Beeswax, found on many types of trees (mainly in Forest biomes) or in randomly spawning Wood Treasure Chests at night, or can be grown from Queen Bees on most blocks of tree Leaves or Wood in suitable biomes
How to use Forbidden Windows
Forbidden Windows can be used for building and decoration purposes by placing them into the game world, for example into a wall or ceiling. Just like all other windows they will auto-connect to adjacent Forbidden Windows placed right beside them with the same rotation, but not around corners and not with different types of windows. They will not auto-connect to the very similar looking Forbidden Window Lattices.
Different from doors, windows cannot be wired, opened nor locked.
You can fully rotate Forbidden Windows into all directions by pointing your cursor at them, then pressing and holding R (as the default key) and then moving the mouse while holding down the left mouse button. The chosen rotation angle can be "locked" too by simply typing "r" while looking at an already rotated block or item, so that all windows of the same stack in the chosen quickslot will then face the same direction when being placed.
Forbidden Windows can be picked up without the need to equip any Power Cells. Of course you won't be able to pick up such windows on game worlds, on player claims or in Adventures where your Permission rank is not sufficient (mainly when you are merely a visitor), which can only be changed by the owner of the game world, the respective claim owner or Adventure creator.
Other than that, Forbidden Windows can also be put on display by placing them into the slots of display containers like Placemats, Stone Wall Shelves, Hidden Temple Altars, Galactic Grav-Chambers, Frozen Containers, Holiday Decorative Trees, Snow Buried Containers or the like.
- Forbidden Windows are called "Forbidden City Window" in game worlds if you point at them with your cursor, different from their tooltips and crafting recipes
- Even though Forbidden Windows are made of Wood and Beeswax, they are fireproof
