Better Grass Mod v0.4
Posted 20 September 2010 - 04:41 PM
This is a simple little mod that (IMHO) improves what grass looks like. I got tired of the way that on hills most of the grass from the side looked brown because of the edge, but at the same time replacing the texture to NEVER have that edge tile looked goofy. So I came up with something in between. Kinda hard to explain, so look.
What this does is if the grass is on a shallow slope, you see the grassy side, but if there's a drop of more than one block, you get the dirt-edge. Because of how this works, it works with ANY TEXTURE PACK YOU USE.
As of version 0.4 this mod will now no longer be a standalone mod, but become part of xau's brilliant HD texture patch - (see viewtopic.php?f=25&t=46173 ) I don't think there's anything else to really do on this but if you have suggestions or bugs (about the BetterGrass part of things) report them here rather than bugging xau about them. Thanks!
LATEST VERSION v0.4 - Moved to patch format
v0.3 - Grass un-borked after snow fix
v0.2 - Now with support for snow!
v0.1 - First release
Let me know if this kind of thing aint legit and I will remove it. Otherwise, enjoy!

I like it - the default grass thing is kind of weird. Also, you apparently increased the resolution from the default? Looks good. Thanks for sharing.

I'm afraid I'm clueless when it comes to Macs, sorry! Though, it sounds as if it's trying to RUN the jar file rather than open it - which you'd expect, the default behaviour for jars is to run them. You might need a seperate program to open it.
But to be honest? If it's not something you already know how to do and are comfortable doing, I would advise not to do it. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm trying to be unhelpful but I don't want to give you advice that might lead to you damaging your game, I hope you understand. Especially for a silly cosmetic mod. At some point way off in the future there might be official mod support and this kind of trick won't be needed.
