The new update includes a version of the textures that are smaller (the "Smaller Pack"), allowing for animated water, lava and fire. All the stuff that's missing from the original pack. In this way it functions more like Kas' Painterly pack in that all the textures have an overhaul but water and lava appear as default. Here's a screenshot of the Smaller pack:
In addition, the main pack now has new textures for lava and a texture for fire, though both are non-animated.
A lot of small minor edits into one larger edit:
v2.4 Terrain.png updates and changes: Doors, Bookshelf, Silver, Gold, Obsidian, Bedrock. Items.png updates and changes: Doors, Sign, Egg, Book, Redstone, Brick, Silver Bar, Gold Bar, Diamond, Armor and Weapons. Overhaul of Flint.
In addition, inspired by Kas' amazing Painterly update today (!!!), I created an autumn version of Quandary. I haven't released it, but if anyone is interested, I might be able to throw together a pack.
Looking for some fall fun or trying to catch a little spring fever? Quandary now has seasons! (As this aptly titled GIF animation demonstrates:)
What is Quandary?
The Quandary texture pack for Minecraft is designed to act as a simple replacement to the original Minecraft textures, not a major overhaul like Kas' Painterly Pack or Doku's RPG texture pack, both beautiful texture packs you may wish to consider. Quandary, instead, uses the original textures Notch created as a base and adds slightly more fidelity to the terrain, improving the visibility of world blocks. In other words, two players playing on the same server will be able to experience the same "feel" even when one is using the Quandary texture pack and the other is using the default textures.
There are a few key differences in Quandary 2.5:
Additionally, the 32p version of the texture pack has been discontinued. It was obvious as soon as the 16p was introduced that it was the version with more interest. The 32p version may be brought back again in the future if Notch makes some changes to 32p texture support. With the 16p version, you don't have weird bugs like no animations for water and lava or fire appearing in brick and gold.
I have wanted to change my texture pack to something other than the stock texture pack (sorry notch!)
but I have not liked the way that Dokus RPG pack have completely changed the look and feel of my buildings and my world...
But as I am typing this I am putting on Quandary June. It is what I have been looking for in a map pack.
I thank you for making not just 1 texture pack, but 12 !!!!!
Congrats and I hope notch makes this the default texture pack(s) if he decides to do a version with seasons in it.
Since you went back to low res the water is that vanilla style dark blue. Is there anyway to get the lighter water with the new seasonal textures ? I love the October texture pack but the low res means the water is the dark blue! Do you have any plans to go back to higher res or are you going to stick to the low res ?
I liked your seasons so much, I wrote a little program to run every time I start minecraft, which will update the seasons on a 12 day rotating basis (today = june, tomorrow = july, etc.). And I thought I'd share: https://sourceforge.net/projects/quandaryrotator/
It's extremely amateur, just something for me to play with, and I thought others might enjoy. Check the readme for how to get it to work. Let me know if there's already something better out there, and I'll remove this post. Otherwise, enjoy!
