    I really don't get how so many people don't understand that it uses pickaxe power.

    Wait a sec, what would happen if you replaced a chair (if you can replace chairs) while someone is sitting on it? Would they be forced off or would the style change while they sit

    People are waiting for a "Creative Mode" they may have thought this was what they were asking for, a way to change any block at any time.

    But at the same time, they talk about it like it's something that will be in survival, to make picks useless?

    It still requires a pick to work, and it also doesn't swap out a block with air. If you wanted to REMOVE a block, you'd still have to use a pick.

    It's just meant to save you time, instead of digging out a bunch of clay, stone, and copper/tin to replace it with dirt, or change wood types, or break all your items on your floor to replace the floor, or under your chests, or the chests themselves, not replace pickaxes in general.

    Sooo... When will the new Update release? It's been quite a time now.

    I was talking about the people who don't realise that pickaxes are needed. If they thought that pickaxes are now useless for mining, how can that be taken as a creative system change?

    It seems it would be rather obvious considering if you tried to mine with this blocks would just place

    3 seconds ago I was thinking about breaking and replacing every block from a building of mine. Words can not express how excited I am for this update.

    I'm so happy that it keeps wedged blocks aswell. Wonder if it works with liquids

    Kinda doubt that one. It swaps blocks in the world for blocks in your inventory, and vice versa. There is no "Water Block" "Lava Block" or "Liquid Honey Block" in the game. It likely wouldn't create buckets for you, and it might just be awkward if it used buckets already in your inventory to do that, although, I suppose they could.

    I see no reason why they can't really. To place a bucket of lava over a water block all they really need to do inventory-wise is switch the lava bucket for a water bucket. The code to switch the blocks in the world itself is probably more complicated than that.

    I feel like another reason it wouldn't work with liquids is because it would then just mix the liquid's instantly, and leave whatever block was appropriate.

    Not necessarily. In the video one block is being replaced by another. It's not like both blocks co-exist for even a fraction of a second.

    I think there should be a way to toggle pain sprayer’s abilities in the architect gizmo pack, and maybe a slot for paints like with coins and ammo.

    There already is a toggle (on/off) in 1.3.5 (at least the PC version, not sure about XB1/PS4).

    To the left of the inventory/hotbar, there are small toggles when various tools are equipped. One of them toggles the Paint Sprayer function, whether it is stand-alone or as part of the Gizmo Pack.

    This shows where it is on my screen; the others control various aspects of The Grand Design. When you mouse over each one it will tell you what it controls.

    I more meant the rest of the liquid blocks that aren't being instantly replaced. Example: Replace a block of water with a block of lava, unless the puddle is only one block, then the rest of the water will just turn it into obsidian.
