    Okay, the big circle is the part that makes the sky light up during a fireworks explosion, that way Mojang wouldn't have to add lighting changes out of nowhere.
    For the stuff under potion swirls, those are two different styles of fireworks particles.

    I totally forgot about fireworks; sorry, dude.

    The real crit particles are to the right of note block particle. The first one is regular crit (jumping, etc) and the second one is enchant crit (bane of arthropods, smite).

    Regular hits don't have particles.


    Sweet! Thanks for clearing that up for me. Helps a lot!

    ...The rest of the particles are straightforward, and the ones that aren't are the critical hit stuff.


    Thanks,but not so straightforward, or I'm dense. What's the large gradient circle to the right of flame and sparks used for? And are the ones below potion swirls the regular hits and below that the crit hits?

    Hi,

    I'm working through the particles and I have a few questions that I hope someone here can help me with.

    Does anyone have a current LABLED version of the particles file?

    There are two particle files in the 13w04a snapshot ( this may not be new or unique to this snapshot, just specifying where I'm seeing these. ). One at the top level and one within the GUI folder. Any info on when the GUI/particles.png is used? It appears to only have smoke in it.

    Thanks in advance!

    posted a message on [128x][1.5] SANGUINE v 4.2 - Ultra Realistic pack
    I have decide to fully refresh Sanguine. I've gone through the entire pack very meticulously and revised almost all of the textures. Sanguine is still clearly the same texture pack, but far more refined and consistent. I still have a lot to do, Mobs are still default, there are still items and blocks to update, but I'm getting there! And I'm personally FAR happier with the pack now! Thanks for the encouraging words and good advice Glimmar!

    I will release Sanguine v.5 as soon as Minecraft 1.5 ships. I've reformatted Sanguine for the new texture pack file structure and this has allowed me to greatly reduce the file size for better, snappier performance!

    Thanks everyone for the encouragement and I hope that you enjoy the new improved Sanguine!

    So I'm looking to update my texture pack for the new 1.5 texture file format and I don't see the cracks used for mining progress anywhere. Has anyone seen where they went?

    I pulled my copy of the client from the 13W02B SNAPSHOT READY FOR TESTING!

    I know, I know... :)

    There's so many blocks!!! It usually takes me a few hours per block. I'm picky. Since I still have a lot to just get the texture up to date, I'll just punt and roll out a beta that uses default blocks where I haven't finished yet. Couple hours

    Hi everyone! So sorry to leave you all hanging out there in minecraftia without any updates or posts to explain why!

    I've been unable to spend time on this lately due to having to deal with a legal matter. It's been far higher on my radar than this texture pack but I haven't abandoned this at all. I hope to have an opportunity to spend time updating this for 1.6.6 this weekend. Sorry for the long delay and failure to follow up on my prior promised update.

    posted a message on [Solution to remix packs]
    I haven't posted here yet because I'm not strongly opinionated either way. But I do have some thoughts on this issue so I'll at least add them to the discussion.

    I allow others to re-use / remix my stuff. I do so partly because I'm not trying to monetize them, and partly because I know that I don't have any intention to police them. Unless you intend to enforce a rule that others may not use your work then it's pointless to make such a rule. This site does not have the resources to enforce the rules they have, and I don't see that changing to encompass them reviewing every post for cribbed textures. No one here is going to spend the time to do it themselves. That is already likely impossible and will only grow more so. There's no money to support third party policing like the riaa etc do. So, how will any rule that's made be enforced fairly and effectively anyway?

    This board is basically unregulated with occasional moderation. There's huge traffic and too much activity for the current system to deal with. Future planned changes may resolve some existing technical issues but won't address this issue at all.

    I don't see a solution in the current suggestions in the poll. Just another rule.

    A better system of submitting, validating and sharing texture packs / skins / mods and maps is what's needed. A forum is simply not the right tool for this job.

    Thanks for the information mods. I'll look forward to the changes...patiently.

    I hope you all will take my comments not as bombast and bluster, but as a sincere warning. I was moved to post this after watching these issues accumulate over a long period of time, not rashly.

    From the released mods subforum:

    Note regarding posting links to downloads with adf.ly

    Postby citricsquid ยป Mon Apr 18, 2011 9:34 pm
    Hello.

    While adf.ly is fine for use by creators of content, it is not acceptable for people who create compilations of others work to do this unless you have the creators permission (and can provide proof of said permission).

    You may only link to adf.ly if the content you're linking to is either you own, or you have permission. Any people not following this will have their topics removed.


    You could enforce this rule ( it's not even posted in the texture pack subforum ) and clarify that this rule disallows texpack remixes as well as code reuse in mods.

    EDIT:

    Why is the bar for uncredited re-use set at monetizing downloads? Shouldn't it simply be dis-allowed?

    But then you'd have to moderate the forums at a level that I don't think you can achieve.

    I'm not suggesting that user momentum is easy to overcome at all. I'm quite aware of the incredible difficulty in that task.

    I'm also not suggesting I have any leverage in this area. I am suggesting that it will arise.

    see myspace for a reference or geocities or AOL.

    Are you suggesting that I shouldn't bother commenting on this obvious ridiculousness of the current status here and should just shut up? I agree. I'm just choosing to disregard thte uselessness of pointing out this site's obvious fail.

    Seriously, this place has ridiculously high traffic, monetizes it for Curse and the search has been "temporarily" out for weeks now with a fricking "use Google" solution post in it's place. What a joke.

    Rebuild this cheep-ass dorm-room-project BBCode forum into a world class site ASAP or IT WILL BE DONE BY SOMEONE ELSE!

    The moderation here needs to get serious about enforcing the rules. The owners need to demand better technical support and new development from the new simi-owners and make the random collection of unsearchable sub-forums and threads into a modern website.

    Or you can just watch someone else step up like a proper business serving a community of several hundred thousand users in a market of more than two million game owners and take it to a professional level.

    Now, I expect you to lock this thread and go build a lighthouse or something. I have NO confidence that posting on this sub-forum will have any effect whatsoever in fact, I doubt you'll be able to find this post in a day. Sad really.
