I've finished the first draft and have uploaded it for you guys to use. Let me explain the idea to you first though. Basically, I wanted the game to look like an old 2D Zelda game. I found the Zelda pack that's here on the forums, but I just couldn't get down with it. The 16bit, pixel-y textures just didn't sit right with me. So, I decided to redraw them by hand at 32bit. I also chose my own textures to use rather than basing it on the original pack. They are all from various 2D Zelda titles though, except for the ores, tree trunks (which are based on the WW Deku Tree bark), and lava. I did borrow some ideas from the original though, most noticeably the leaves. So, want to use it yourself? Well here you go!
9/29: I updated the items.png file. Made the swords and hammers a bit prettier and added a sign and shovels.
Tracks, Redstone Torch, Sapling, Yellow Flower, Red Flower, Brown Mushroom, Red Mushroom
TNT, Wood Door, Torch, Iron Door, Jukebox, Monster Spawner, Cactus
As requested, I'm including the Twilight Princess skin I made. Since I don't want it to interfere with dragging and dropping the files from the zip, I'm just going to put the png file here in the post.
Well, There you go. The ZIP above includes the first draft of the texture pack, some new armors, some new items, and a new cow skin. Just copy everything in it into your minecraft.jar file and you are good to go! Any questions or comments are greatly appreciated!
I pulled the smooth stone texture off the back of one of the big rocks from lttp, I originally had one of their mountain side textures but it repeated really bad, like it hurt my eyes to look at it for too long. Maybe I can find a nice middle ground.
I had to register to post that this looks incredible and I can't wait to use this skin. I'm using the other one right now, but your textures and player skin look significantly better. Looking forward to a download link.
