A friend of mine wanted to make the levels from Portal in Minecraft. "Wasn't there someone who was making Portal textures?" A response, from someone else: "Yeah, but he never finished/released them." Thus, was born this! I made a Portal texture pack that includes:

-Buttons
-Doors
-Normal and Companion cubes (on sand and gravel textures, so they fall)
-Box droppers
-Observation rooms
-Elevators (and the doors)
-Platforms, their pistons, and the pits under them
-Metal grates
-Energy ball launchers, catchers, and the energy balls themselves
-Fizzlers
-Indicator lights
-Turrets
-Metal (in all 3 sizes)
-Concrete ceilings, walls, and floors (includes the checkered floor)

Note that this texture pack is not meant to make the game look like Portal, it's meant to make it look like Portal in Minecraft. That means the textures are lo-res, the details aren't all there, (I couldn't fit them all in, originally you could have an orange glow in the pits) and everything is out of proportion (just like Minecraft, nobody makes things in the right sizes). But no, really; you can make some pretty cool stuff with this texture pack that resembles the real deal. the idea of this pack is to include every puzzle element in Portal, or at least most.

@MrScarface: Sounds... epic.

@Frost01: Be more specific. What images? How are they not working?

@Sidola: Thanks. This pack took about 3 hours of solid work (no breaks).

@L the detective: Thanks. I don't have experience with skinning creatures (I play peaceful, so sue me ._.), so good luck with that.

It would be interesting to see a creeper that was one of the energy balls... probably wouldn't work out due to the not being able to have transparencies?

You could make a portal'd creeper by making the form of a portal energy ball, and then copying the minecraft water texture on it.
Depends though, i've never played Portal although i know a lot about it, and i don't know what color a energy ball is :\
I'm assuming it would be colored like a diamond block/ azure piece of cloth?

Grats on this map pack! Looks amazing!

I just have a question, can you set up a server and have it load those textures, and then when they leave it would go back to their vanilla textures?

Or do you outright have to change textures for the full game?

I've never quite known this, and am interested.

Unfortunatly you can't do this, you might be able to at a later date but you can't at the moment.
