Jademalo has an incredible new classic Doku pack entitled Jadoku. It's not completely finished, but...
It features the new Flawless Gerudoku items!
I post this in the hopes I can get some attention for her pack:

I need your help! Im not happy with some of the textures. Mainly the Nether textures, the Lapis Block, the saplings and the lapis ore. If anyone is willing to give me a hand in creating some new textures for them that fit in with the original Doku's style, I'd really appreciate it.
Im also looking for someone to help complete some of the missing things in the pack. This includes items, Mob skins and the Minecart, since im not happy with the current skin. These are not as high a priority as fixing the terrain, however.
I feel this set really takes advantage of the 32x32 area:
Sulfur Gunpowder has a slightly smaller icon.
Sugar has a relatively small icon.
Eggs have a relatively small icon.
Apples were shrunk.
Snowball was shrunk.
String was shrunk.
Cookies are nice and tiny.
Paper is slightly smaller and paper-like.
Overhauling items as it becomes clear they do not fit the overall style.
I'm very tired tonight. Credit is due to the original artists. I spent many an hour creating the perfect item sizes and 1px borders, as well as keeping the default minecraft color scheme on the tools and weapons.
[*:1gyhj5gs]Major change to Iron Tools. Shinier.
[*:1gyhj5gs]Major change to Stone Tools. Less colorful.
[*:1gyhj5gs]Clay is now blue-grey instead of orange.
[*:1gyhj5gs]Bed is done.
[*:1gyhj5gs]Boats are bordered. (minor detail)
[*:1gyhj5gs]Sticks do not need a 1px border.
[*:1gyhj5gs]Sign does not exactly fit the DokuCraft pack.
[*:1gyhj5gs]Wheat is odd.
- Any material that is the work of another individual but is being represented as original. Permission must be obtained from the original creator, and due credit must be given, before including any element of that creator's work.
Merely including work from other people is against the forum rules.
Alright. I'm sorry if you feel I've somehow stepped outside the realm of acceptability. You are free to be against this icon compilation, and I won't deny you that perspective.
But with that said, I do believe you are making some mistakes:

I put the important part in large letters. I am not representing any of this work as original. It is "copied", then altered. I also added 1px borders and made icons smaller and changed colors.

You call this giving "credit"? I see way more then what you listed.. One being Gerudoku tools.
Yes, it is giving credit, in that I am not taking credit.. Gerudoku isn't a person. No, I didn't ask Doku, as he has made it very clear that his original pack, and its evolution: Gerudoku, are open to alteration. Gerudoku is "no more". Its creator has announced that anyone who wishes may re-interpret it or attempt to update it for future Minecraft versions.
I don't think he did, the creator of gerudoku wouldn't of let him!
You're all free to bump my post with more complaints. You can do anything you want.
It's no secret why ANYONE posts ANYTHING on this forum.
To share art.
If you want it taken down, that's fine. I'll still have it to use, and anyone who liked it will have it too - which is exactly why I put it up!
I tried the pack out, and I actually like it a fair bit. I don't know why people are giving you so much ****, considering that hundreds of people have taken packs and combined their favorite elements about them, especially GeruDoku.
- Well done. The pack is very nice.
- Haters gon' hate.
This was originally made for snowyomen's own use, and was posted it on the forum for others to enjoy. Why should anyone care about the things put together? If you are allowed to mix packs together for your OWN use, why can't you share what you have made for others? If you say this isn't your own artwork and you make sure that people know that (which is the case here), than surely it is allowed to share your work.
I don't have a problem with compilations. I do, however, have problems with people who break the forum rules and show no regard for the feelings of the original artists; many artists don't want their work used in compilation packs, and it's very rude to just take their work without asking.
