The new lava texture is a bit duller and what's worse is that the old texture was since classic. That's right! SINCE CLASSIC!

And now one of the classic textures got killed.

The old texture was slightly more vivid. It would have red, orange and yellow. The new texture has lesser shades. I was forced to make old gravel texture, old food texture for my texture pack. And what's next? Lava.

Here's the comparison.

The original lava texture. The new lava texture.

Notice the lack of reds and yellows in the new lava texture? This is dull. The new lava texture is too orange! It looks like carrot soup rather than lava.

Mojang, what have you done with the lava textures?

Just use a texture pack If you hate it that much there's nothing wrong with the new one

I think I prefer the new one, the old tiled horribly. Maybe the new one looks better.

I agree with you, the old texture looked hot. The new one just looks like boiling carrot and butter-nut squash soup. I just hope editing the lava texture isn't as difficult as it used to be (I don't think it is but I haven't tried in a while), but as far as making the lava texture goes it should be a simple case of altering the saturation and contrast in the new image, or just adding in the old lava texture if you still have it.

Good point, it did now that I think about it.

Geeze, if you hate it so much then jump into the minecraft jar and find the lava texture, then copy it into the new jar. Frankly, both of them look terrible, and I'd much rather see Wayuki's texture pack lava. And with HD texture support in 1.5 I won't even need MCPatcher for that.

As usual, I shall say this: they are both good. The old looks HOT HOT HOT, but the new is a more subtle, sullen, smouldering texture.

The new texture does seem more dull but doesn't hurt me eyes as much. If this thread was never created I would have never noticed the difference.

Back in early Minecraft, that stuff was BRIGHT and blinding to the eye. The amount of tilled-like texture to the old one just made it horrid to look at in-game. The new one gives more of the appearance of lava to me. It's a soothing, bubbly, and molting lava, and it fits in with the caves then the old texture, in my opinion.

Get a texture pack.

Stop worrying so much,

worrying is using your imagination to create things you don't want to.

They both look pretty good. I'll admit the new one doesn't look like it'd give off the light lava gives.

I prefer the older one - just for nostalgic reasons.
I used to be a Support Guru, but then ran out of time. I have more time now, but I'll only make the occasional helpful post.

People that complain about minecraft and then play it later are so annoying! Its ok just get used of it I hated the new food textures before but now i think theyre better, same thing with the lava!

Where am I supposed to get the old lava texture? I can't find it anywhere in minecraft.jar! I'm trying to downdate the lava texture to old. I'm trying to prepare my texture pack for 1.5, with the old textures!

I'll have you know, I played Classic when I first created my account back in 2011. I later moved to PC Gamer Demo and the textures remained the same.

Classic 0.30 had the old lava texture that remained the same in 1.4.7.

I moved to 1.3.1 and eventually later upgraded until 1.4.7.

The new lava texture is what's keeping me from upgrading me to 1.5 later.
