In case you were wondering, as soon as 1.8 is out I'm going to release an update including new blocks so you'll not see blank blocks and such, but it will take some time to actually redesign them. My priority right now is to design new blocks that are leaking through the PAX videos before adding new things like passive mobs (next likely update).
Based of the pictures, your leaves look amazing! Now I know I have to make my own leaves look more "leafy". [...] Basicly, your pack inspires me.
Glad to hear that. The basic idea of making the leaves "radiate" from the center leaving the box's corners empty was actually what motivated me to start making the pack once I saw how good they looked.
Hi Wedhro,I noticed that the diamond doesn't fit to the diamond ore. Furthermore the door icons need some work. They just don't fit to the actual doors in the pack.Anyway, this is my favorite texture pack so far. :smile.gif:
If you check the change log you should notice I haven't yet designed the icons, they're still vanilla. I'm working on that, but I'll release icons when all of them are finished.
This update makes the texture pack ready to 1.8 but the new block are currently as default. I already designed most of the new blocks but I need to see them in game before adding to the pack (this will be the next update). As a side bonus I made some minor tweaks improving contrast and lighting of tall grass, mushrooms, yellow flower and pumpkin, and I remade the basic Steve skin.

1.8 real update could take a looong while: Notch changed the way grass and leaves pick the biome colors, so the current grasscolor.png and foliagecolor.png don't work as intended (dull colors everywhere, no subtle variations). I've almost finished new blocks and mobs, but since biome colors have an huge impact on aesthetics I'll have to spend a lot of time tweaking it randomly, hoping someone will discover how the new biome colors behave.
I wasn't able to see a single Silverfish in game so its skin was made with no visual reference and may look ugly.
Something changed in the way the game picks biome colors i.e. goodbye subtle color variations i.e. flat colors everywhere. I made a temporary color scheme until I figure out a better way to use it, also considering the 1.8 pre-release version seems to lack some biomes (both old and new) and so things may change in the stable release. Only time will tell.
Now you're ready to 1.8! I'll stop working on the pack for a while since the migration of my server from 1.7 to 1.8 will need all my attention, but I'll resume as soon as I can.
I agree it could be better. This is actually the third version of it, each one completely different from the previous; I published this 'cause it's the better looking one, but I could change it in the future if I find a way to make it look better.
From the looks of the pictures, i would say this looks like a great pack, especially since it isnt HD! I'll download this and look at it on my texture testing world, keep up the great work! :biggrin.gif:
Wow... this pack is amazing, but also I like how you where able to make it look real just it still has that Minecraft feel! It is the perfect pack I was looking for. I REALLY look forward to seeing mire texture packs coming from you!
Also I would love to donate to you because you deserve it, but I'm thirteen :dry.gif:
Another one small update to make new blocks and particles visible in 1.9pre4. As a side bonus I added mycelium blocks, lily pads, nether bricks and quite an exotic enchanting table. Minor tweaks including better lighting of jack o' lanterns and netherrack.
I added end stone block and moon phases. Sun and moon have been completely redesigned to look better at dawn/dusk and I increased the resolution even more (256px) to make them look smoother. Redesigned silverfish (now with legs!) and made some minor tweaks including changing endermen's eyes to purple.
Now the download link is shortened though adf.ly but donor will be granted (reasonable) special requests: give something and I will design new version of blocks, items, mobs and so on!
