I don't mind at all! I would be extremely happy if someone liked the game enough to make an official texture pack!
And 1.0_8 won't be out today. Sorry :/. I should probably stop predicting when things will be out since I never get it right. But I hit a few snags (and by snags I mean tekkit ). So over the weekend it will get done, you guys will be able to make your own GUI as intricate as you what them!
Thanks! I'm very happy that I get to make an official texture pack. I'm very patient for the update, I can start on making the texture pack while I wait.
I've only hit a few snags so far...I slept almost all day yesterday, and I'm having a bit of difficulty with some textures. (My diamond and iron textures didn't turn out right...) And I'm still a bit sleepy....
I kinda figured that, I operated a small Minecraft server before.
When I get to a good part of the texture pack, I plan on adding some alternate texture to what I'm currently designing.
For example, there would be an alternate character that is a girl, and an alternate grass and dirt texture, both of which have a deep blue tone compared to what I'm designing.
I'm currently doing the tiles.
