This is a texture pack that uses Tronic as a base, with custom icons from Frenden's Texture Pack and a round sun and moon from the Painterly Pack. The original Tronic is dead, so this project is an unofficial continuation (since I couldn't find the author) I made this variant to fix certain issues that existed in the earlier Tronic texture pack (like wool blocks being difficult to differentiate from iron blocks), and many other things have been changed besides. Major changes include teal water, peach clay, round sun and moon, improvements to block textures so you can tell them apart, new icons for Beta 1.2 items, and improved underwater vision and night vision compared to default textures. Included is a version with invisible armor so you can see players' skins. Installation instructions and changelog included in the package.

Hey, there's a bug in the texture pack and my brick and gold textures are all messed up!
The bug is you, because you thought you knew better than I do how to install the texture pack. You have somehow stumbled your way through life blissfully ignorant of the existence of a thing called a Readme, and the necessity of following instructions.
- Terrain and mob textures from the original Tronic texture pack
- Item icon textures from Frenden's Texture Pack.
- Round Sun and Round Moon textures from Painterly Pack.
- Thanks to Shamus03 for providing custom fire, water, lava, and portal textures, as well as the Connected Textures Mod texture slab.
- All other textures (including the new textures since Beta 1.2 of Minecraft) are the work of Desi Quintans (http://www.desiquintans.com).
- Sprites appearing on the paintings are taken from popular NES games, and belong to their respective creators.
this pack doesn't seem to be working even with the HD patcher.. it thinks its a 16x16 pack for some reason..
Are you unpacking the .zip it comes in to get the texture packs inside, or did you put the whole thing into your textures folder? The distributable is a .zip that contains two texture packs inside it, and it's these ones which you actually use.
What gave you the impression that the original Tronic has been abandonned other than you can't contact the author? It was updated to the latest version (1.2) and all bricks and mobs have perfect textures.
While the UI and items in your pack are a slight improvement, as far as I'm concerned o.a. the water colour, the bricks and the birch tree stem are a step back, what makes the original Tronic great is it's simplicity, the details on the bricks and the birch are detrimental to that, and the colour changes to the water and other bricks don't really fit with all biomes, at least not with my tundra one. Also I like my minecraft sun and moon square, but that's a matter of preference I suppose.
I realise of course that tastes differ, so good job nonetheless, but I'm really hoping the original Tronic continues.
