ALL RIGHTS TO THIS POST AND CONTENT HAVE BEEN
TURNED OVER TO "ParagonExivous" (Myself, in a different configuration)


NOTE: If you download this and you have an account, PLEASE COMMENT. It's common courtesy, really.

Hello everyone, this is my very first texture mod, and this is thread hosts its ongoing progress. So far, it has moved beyond mere terrain edits to include many other things such as a complete GUI overhaul.
NOTE: I would like to thank user johnlier for his submission of the new banner for use on the customizer site and on the Beta HD megathread. A really cool guy!

==GUI==
Spoiler:

NB:I recommend using Optimine+Optifog (click here for it), as the FPS boost on most computers is tremendous. I also include a 32x terrain in the zip (aptly named terrain32.png) for those truly concerned about performance loss, but be prepared for the drop in quality. Just try Optimine+Optifog first before using the 32x.


As this is improved over time, I will post all changes made to the files.

This is the very first creation of mine, so I welcome all criticism, just please make sure that you are specific/clear in mentioning things that are wrong or you just don't like. Also feel free to post any suggestions you may have. Once again, my only request is that you are specific.

Thank you, and enjoy.

Also, as a side note, I recommend trying the Nether while using this pack! The difference should be immediately noticeable, and I'm looking for some feedback on it.

v1.01 fixes a small problem with redstone repeaters. All fixed now.

Really nice looking textures, but is that symbol over the sun a watermark or actually part of it?

Yes, its the actual sun.
It's actually the symbol of a band called "Dream Theater", it's called the majesty symbol. As you can tell I'm a huge fan of that band and Prog rock in general. you should see the moon if you think that's special.

Well actually I meant I think I'd prefer it without the symbol, because the actual sun's texture is really freaking sweet, but that's just my opinion.

Yeah, I considered that the symbols might be going a little bit overboard, so if enough people bring that up as a complaint I'm prepared to remove it from the main pack (although I might keep it in the zip as an alternate).

A little saddening though, 'cause me and my friend Rayziik (check out his pack, too) really like that band and this was a feature he seemed to enjoy.

Do you like it?

It's a pumpkin/jackolantern.
It's fun to look at, and serves a functional purpose as a lighting source.

Also, you can wear it as a helmet, which is always fun :D

Good start, I suggest adding a little more depth to the grass on the side blocks :)

Hmm, could you clarify what you mean by 'depth'?
Is it an issue with the hue/coloring/brightness,
or do you mean that you'd prefer to see more detail in the actual texture itself?

But thanks for that criticism though, it really helps in determining how to improve.

Jeez, it really doesn't help that the forums closed temporarily right after I post an update.
Oh well, guess they had to do it sometime, right?

Honestly the only two iffy's I have for the pack as a whole are the vegetation (sugar cane has a pronounced outline, and the Toad shroom lol) and the blue lava.

So now all you need to do is finish up, with GUIs and Items, the items especially being something I'm looking forward to seeing.

And also, you have got to teach me that trick you pulled on animating your still water. It really looks like its rippling!
Mods ruin Minecraft. Bronies are dumb. Herobrine is fake. Sue me.
