Vakmos Tweak

A Very Vanilla Variation

Posted Image

Note: I will be way for a good long while and will be unable to continue work on this pack. Thanks to the Changes Made in 1.5, this pack should still be usable, but there will be no more updates. Feel free to take my Textures and use them elsewhere. I am sorry.

Introduction:
Hello People's of the Universe. My name is John Vakmos and today. I have a new texture pack for you. I call it Vakmos Tweak. I made it as my first attempt into texturing. The concept is to take vanilla texture and change them to somehow make them fit better or look better while still remaining true to the original textures. Most textures have not been changed and that is intentional. To determine what was to be changed, I went to Reddit and asked what People wanted to have changed. I had a large number of responses and I made as many reasonable changes that I could.

I will continue to update this post and work on this pack. Suggestions for formatting this post and improving the actual pack is welcome.
I will see you later.

Did you happen to fix the glass panes being overly bright?

Nice work, I like it, but this is very easy to do, anyone could do it in 5 minutes with a decent photo editor. Maybe you could edit a few more blocks and items, make the textures have your own touch? (no offence intended)

I think it looks great. This will definitely be my default. But you should make the jack o lantern a bit better shaded, like make the brightest point at the bottom center, and it gets darker as it makes its way out. Kinda like there's a candle at the bottom.

The point of this pack was not to change everything.  I plan on adding alot more to the pack and changing much more than what's here. Suggestions on what to change and what to touch are welcome.

The five minute thing is understandable. It actually took me quite a bit longer because I'm new to the tools. As I get better I will try making other, more complicated packs.

I'm not offended, merely understanding.

Like the Texture pack. Would for sure use it. But i really like Faithful 32x32, any way to get an HD pack in the future?

on a side note from what i can see what is with the bedrock? its very weird. Would use original tbh.

The pack itself is actually all I need to give for (+1 rep) because I actually like the tweaks you added in :3

Maybe improve item textures too?

I made a video for this Texture Pack!



EDIT:
Just a quick note, in the thumbnail it does say "Texture Pack" but it got cut off by the Youtube Embedder. :/

EDIT2: Fixed some weird glitch...

The changes are very fine my lad! Looks better than default, but still very traditional to the theme!

Thanks for the video and input. I thought I had made the water clearer, but obviously I didn't do it well enough. You're saying Vakmos fine as well.

Thanks for the suggestion. Will definitely try it out.

The bedrock Texture is the crying obsidian texture. I'll probably make my current coal texture the bedrock texture and make crying obsidian the sponge texture. As for an HD pack, who knows what the future may hold in store for us.

Hmmmm. Maybe the fishing rod? could use a modern fix up other then string attached to a hook. And maybe zombie flesh make it look like some sort of brain or something? lol it's kind of bad suggestions but I wanna see your textures :P

Gonna completely 100% honest here. This is my favorite texture pack. That is all.
I'm a cowman that hunts down creepers. And your argument is invalid.
