So I'm not saying that he should change them!
But adding the option to turn on or off
I got a really good computer and I'm making my own texture pack and I can't even play with it
I just want that option
(I'm making a super detiled texture pack 12800x12800 pixels that's 50 the normal)

Edit: I want the game to work after I replace the terrain file we don't need an option just making the game work with larger textures

Perhaps you mistyped, but 12800x12800 sound pretty steep for a texture resolution, don't you mean 1280x1280?

To include a "Better Graphics" OPTION means that all copies would have to be coupled with the amount of data put into the "better graphics".

Which means the whole point of using Bit/Pixel graphics (memory saving) would become pointless.

Now "Better Graphical Processing" is entirely different. I think you're going overboard with 12800x12800 but PROCESSING better graphics lies solely on the ones making the skins to input "HD Graphics", meaning if he tweaked the engine to handle graphics up to 1024x1024, then it could come packaged with the 16x16 graphics but allow your 1024x1024 "HD" graphics so long as you put them there.
That would likely mean lag on your end though.

Yeah. And I should edit the topic a bit
my problem with installing it is that after I replace the terrain.png file and start the game I just get a black screen and I just want that to work

Can we not? graphics do not make a game and minecraft's are very stylized and are specific to minecraft.  Go back to halo or just get a texture pack.

The problem is that the game doesn't work if you do that
and it depends on your system I got win7 64bit
and some server doesn't work and I can't install larger textures

I can't believe he is actually making a texture 12800 x 12800. Game developers for the later games wouldn't even touch 512x512 for a cube. They want them as small as possible.

I can guarantee that your computer, or any non-supercomputer would not handle your textures, even if they were all white. I can also guarantee that most computers won't handle a quarter of that size.

I do believe Notch will add in better graphics at a later date, however I do not think they will be a lot better. The way Minecraft looks is very unique as muncher21 stated.

Also, read up on making texture packs and you might understand a bit more about installing them. You can't just expect a community to do all the work for you.

Maybe they are too big but its easy to make them smaler
the problem is that when I make them larger than 256x256
The game crashes.

I'm a professional game developer, currently specializing in special effects.  In the past, I've been a modeler, animator, and art director.  I've worked on about nine games so far, seven of which have shipped.

In all that time, the single largest texture map I've had to use was 1024x1024.  I never used anything larger than that.  Most of the texture maps I use currently are smaller than 256x256.  Most are either 64x64 or 128x128.

If you need to have a texture map larger than 256, you're doing something wrong.

How is it even theoretically useful to have more resolution on a texture than on your monitor?
