Hi terratechnicians,

I found a way to produce transparent/ghost blocks of any kind.
This bug has been reported on several occasions:

http://forum.terratechgame.com/index.php?threads/0-6-0-6-transparent-block-glitch.4686/
http://forum.terratechgame.com/index.php?threads/0-6-0-3-transparent-blocks.4553/
http://forum.terratechgame.com/index.php?threads/ghost-block.5032/

But... the source of the ghost-blocks was not known until now.

This is possible:

This is how it's done:
- select a block in the blockpainting menu
- use the "reset-tech-to-center-of-R&D"-button
- the transparent block will fall down as if you dropped it there

Unfortunately, when loading the tech again, all blocks are back to their normal form.

I would consider this a feature (if it works permanently), as transparent blocks are awesome!
Devs: Take adding this as a feature into consideration please.
