About this pack:
This pack was originally to appease my insatiable hunger toward making this game as realistic as possible. What started as a compilation of other mods became a new texture pack of it's own.
DONATE!!!!Donations are more than welcome. I've decided to not only use the donations to purchase textures to use for this pack, but the wife and I have agreed to start collecting a baby fund for the future:
People to thank for their large donations:
Thank you for your dedication and donations. I really appreciate people understanding the delicate time and effort put into these higher resolution packs.
If I don't know your forum name, I post just the first for confidentiality. ^^

More pictures are scattered throughout the thread and my ImageShack. Go find them, you savage.
ONLY DO THESE STEPS IF YOU ARE ON A 64 BIT OPERATING SYSTEM!!!
1. Version of java.
1a. By default windows 7 64 bit auto downloads java 32 bit. Why? Because browsers run in 32 bit and most java applications are web applications, thus the 32 bit default.
2a. To resolve this issue go to HERE and choose the 64 bit for your respective operating system. Install, rejoice, eat cake.
2. Now! For the easy stuff. Download the HD texture patcher that is linked in the first page of this thread.
2a. inside the HD Patcher go to the Options tab. Find the area under "General options" that says "Java Heap Size (MB)" Change this field from "1024" (What mine was defaulted to) To "2048" (exactly double) and patch your minecraft.
You don't actually need to use the HD Patcher to get texture packs to work in the game.
Instead, you can use the "Optifog+Optimine Mod" (make sure it's the package that includes BOTH, not only the Optimine standalone) to allow HD textures and fonts to be used in Minecraft.
And, in addition to it allowing you to do the same thing as the HD Patcher, it actually also gives performance increases along with some additional tweak options (unlike the standard HD Patcher). In fact, they just came out with a new version of it too that also fixed the Better Grass option in it etc. Personally, I think it's a much better option that using the basic HD Patcher.
OptiFog + Optimine 1.7.3_HD_C
Also, if you're having that issue with white lines between blocks and you have already tried updating your video driver (especially if you are using an ATI card or onboard video), try this with the Mipmaps setting to zero.

Downloads:--The first Adfly links allows me to get a little bit of money for your patience of 5 seconds. Again, all of this will go towards purchasing of new textures and the fund. ^^
-The second Adfly link is an extremely experimental compressed version of this texture pack. It reduces the amount of memory used when playing and hopefully resolves some white box issues. Memory drops vary from computer to computer.

The default Minecraft resolution. I'm going to work on this quite a bit to make it look better. Again, only created out of personal request. =)

(32x32) DOWNLOAD LINK:
I had a few personal requests to do these lower resolution textures. They still need heavy refinements but still came out pretty decent with the downsampling. I won't be doing compressed versions of these since it would simply be redundant.

This is actually an entirely new texture pack but I'm far too lazy to create a new thread. Please give constructive criticism as this is a really rough beta and I need helping finding the negative aspects.

Raven found a fix if it redirects you to a survey.
1. Click link.
2. Hit stop once adfly page loads, but before it switches over to fake adfly survey page.
If it redirects you to a survey, do not bother fill it out. It's against the user agreement of Adfly and they are working on weeding them out. If you can't skip the ad (Top right corner) then also go back as it was against their user agreement.
Click back and try to redownload until it works. Thanks for understanding.
I've agreed to support this server as I'm a huge LotR fan. I'll try to get on there sometime and I will be texturing some things especially for this.
These are the current supported textures for some mods. I will be working on expanding this tenfold over the course of this summer. =)
GLSL Height/Specular Maps by Engehenk:
These are the bumpmapping terrains that go along with the GLSL shaders mod (found here). Thanks to Engehenk for his impressive work.

Shaderfiles (these go inside the shaders folder in your minecraft.jar)
This is a download link that is compatible with the modloader version of wildgrass. I'm not sure if I'll ever include into the actual downloads since it is just more to download. Anyway, enjoy!
Modders thread: http://www.minecraft...p?f=25&t=100771
This is support for Dilla's wildcaves which is simply wildgrass in the version of stalagmites/stalactites growing in caves.
His mod can be found in the link below
Modders thread: http://www.minecraft...ic.php?t=286605
This was fan made by the modder and I really encourage fans making this compatible with mods to lessen the work load for me.
Modders thread: http://www.minecraft...81-compblox-v2/
For now, all I have available is alternative biomes which cause the grass and foilage to be colored in a variety of different ways. Some such examples would be a fall/autumn coloring, a summer coloring, or a consistent green everywhere.

I will be posting additional alternative terrains as time progresses. I'll even have quite a few terrains that will almost make it a different pack altogether.
This was done by a fan, Blizzard. He did a nice job with this. Gives the pack a different taste.
How to install:
The HD patcher is required and can be found here:
Follow the instructions on the patcher's main post before posting issues here.
-Download the pack with your desired resolution
-Download the HD Patcher

Legality of proof from Aageon. Thanks mate:
KDstudios 256 pack was used as a template so here are the textures remaining in the pack:
