It's been a long time coming! I started my old pack, DustyCraft a few years ago and I'm still working on it! However, I eventually started taking the pack in another direction... it wasn't the bright and cartoony pack people originally saw anymore. So I decided that when I'd sit down and really turn the pack around, break away from the roots and turn it into something NEW. So here it is, DustyCraft v2! Ya... not a very good name.
It's still not completely finished, but it's almost there! I do apologize for having to play with an incomplete pack, but it is a lot of work!
But I won't detract you with lengthy talk!
DustyCraft is a high resolution pack, so you MUST PATCH the client before you use this pack. These days there are two methods you can use to accomplish this:
1) MCPatcher - the original patcher for high resolution packs. Has an easy-to-use installer in case you're worried about modding the client itself.

2) Optifine - Originally used to optimize Minecraft to run faster, now offers all sorts of bells and whistles, including high resolution support. I personally use Optifine because on top of high resolution support, you get all kinds of flexibility with graphics. However currently MCPatcher seems to better support its extended mods, like CTM with less flaws.

So what you use is your own choice, just follow the links provided for proper installation instructions for each. If you're still having problems, youtube has a few videos uploaded for visual guidance.
You can find even older copies in my old thread, here.
I apologize for the lack of variety in screenshots and lack of videos. The pack is basically new and I can no longer use my old screenshots/videos/reviews. I hope to get some soon!
Q) Hey.... HEY. You STOLE a lot of the graphics in this pack! THIEF! I saw all of these in GeruDoku's pack first!
A) Yes, that is unfortunate. You did probably see some things like... the tools and weapons and maybe the cake or such in GeruDoku... or TyDoku's or various other texture packs first. That's because those packs are much more popular than my own. But I gave the people who made those packs permission to use MY graphics. Please check their credits.txt in their texture pack and you'll see my name there.
Q) You need to fix your pack! The nether is water, bricks have fire!
Q) Some items are broken, like the compass and watch! And the diamond pants have the default compass on them!
A) Do not fret! It simply means you did not patch the client as instructed. Navigate yourself to the above section and follow the instructions please.
Q) You need to update your pack! After I updated Minecraft a lot of textures are broken, like bricks and the nether!
A) Well, there are a few things that could be wrong. The most likely is that after you update Minecraft you lose your patched client. Please repatch to fix the above bugs. The alternative is that my pack really IS out of date, and that could be likely as well! However, you'll know when my pack is missing new textures because you'll see a bright pink texture instead.
Q) Hey, can I use your graphics in my pack?
A) Sadly, no. I once used to love to share my graphics and help other pack artists out... but it ends up way more trouble for me than it's worth. I get way too many accusations about my graphics and it really cripples my packs ability to stand on its own when any sort of recognition is plagued with theft accusations.
Q) Can I use your pack in my video?
A) YES! I try to watch as many youtube videos out there as possible when my pack is featured in them. You don't even have to ask, but I do ask that you link to my pack in your description so people know!
Q) Can I use your pack for my adventure map I'm making?
A) Awesome! Please do! I don't play adventure maps at all really, but if you do create a map and use my pack let me know so I can check it out personally! Also I know that adventure maps may need customized graphics so if you need to edit some things, feel free to. Again though, please link/credit me!
Q) I don't like how <texture> looks! You should do <this> or <that>!
A) Art is a touchy subject. We all interpret and percieve it differently, therefor there will be times when one person may like how something looks and someone else may not. That is the hard part about making a texture pack, trying to appeal to everybody. The best I can do is try to appeal to the masses... however don't let that discourage you! I try my hardest to read every comment I can posted in my threads and address them personally. It may take months, but I have tried my absolute best to take every single criticism into consideration! In fact, my supporters are the ones who shaped this current pack into what it is today, by voicing their input. So thanks! Oh, and I do hope to eventually have a fully-custom-made customizer made by a friend JUST for my pack that will hopefully let everyone pick and choose what textures they like best.
Q) I tried to edit some graphics in your pack for personal use and it's broken now!
A) Aye, that can happen. Chances are you opened it in a program that doesn't support transparency, like MSPaint. You'll have to redownload and try again with something like the Gimp, or Graphics Gale, or Photoshop, which supports and saves transparency.
