New in BC version 3.2 for Minecraft 1.3.2 are pipe facades.
These simply allow you to place a flat panel over your pipes to hide them and (except in early versions) allow levers, etc. to be placed on them.
It is possible to obtain facades for blocks that cannot normally be used for this purpose using the
/give command. The data value of the facade is 16 times the block ID, plus the data value wanted for the block. For example, 16 ×61 + 4 = 980, which when used as the data value for a facade appears as a furnace facing west.
Grass block facade tops show a grayscale grass texture instead of coloring it to the surrounding grass.
