Did some rain effect testing (as some say it can look a bit heavy on the eyes)
The particles for the Joli rain are perfect and dont effect this section so no need to alter that one.
With comparing the environment/rain of original and joli I did a few tests of seeing how it can be made less cluttered.
Any rain droplets that were wider than one pixel was trimmed to only one.
Used original Joli rain effect but this time removed droplets from the sides and a few that were a bit close together. (there will be some edge gaps I know but this was just a test and can easily add a few to sides just to blend it in more)
So you can see the second one is a lot less effect heavy than original which is easy to create so people can be happy when it rains until Andre tweaks his amazing creation.
Amazing texture pack! Love it! Then later on I decided to patch it so I could get the custom water (I don't like that blue-ish default water) worked fine until I discovered that minecraft crashed every time I tried to place a block or kill an animal. It worked fine before I patched it. Any ideas why that happened? :S
sounds to me like you have got a dodgy patcher try redownloading it maybe even a different one if you can find it
I got the MCPatcher and it worked fine with other texture packs before the update. I'll try to re-download it. Thanks!
EDIT: Didn't work, hmm. :/
Fear not! I have your answers!
You are using Xau's old patcher. Use Kahr's HD patcher beta4, not only does it work in 1.5, it supports the ingame texture pack selector! Go on the thread for that if you continue having problems, they will help you from there.
