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!
Thank you. The side of the logs are actually photos of tree bark scaled down and adjusted for tiling and are one of the first thing I designed, maybe I should try something better. If you mean they look too flat (i.e. not rounded), I plan to include rounded alternates whenever I upload this to Minecraft Customizer.
I didn't change anything in the water, I'm not sure what happened here. BTW water color will change for anyone using Spout since it uses the watercolor.png graph to change the color depending on the biome; sooner or later I'll modify it.
Added new 12w03a Snapshot textures: jungle tree's bark and leaves.
Added Dragon Egg.
Support to custom biome water colors.
Minor tweaks including better crops and melon stem.
Now Pixel Reality supports both standard water color and biome-dependant water colors in one single pack. Yeah, it's magic! If you want to see the biome water colors you need Spoutcraft (or other mods), but you will still see the normal color if you don't mod the game (you still need a mod to see the custom water animations).
Regarding the new Jungle biome colors I'm not responsible for the ultra-bright green of the foliage: the game seemingly picks the same colors of the Swamp biome but with no dark overlay, there's nothing I can do to change jungle's colors without messing up with swamps' ones. It doesn't look too bad though, real jungles tend to be quite green in RL.
I hope you like the new trees, praises and criticisms (and donations...) are welcome as usual!
Added Jungle Tree Sapling, Nether Warts, Redstone Lamps, Iron Golem, Ocelot, new stone/sandstone blocks.
Better biome colors (now jungles, rivers and ocean islands get their own colors).
Many tweaks including smoother and darker Jungle Tree leaves, bushes changed into ferns, darker saplings, better chicken shading, brighter sun, moon starts from full moon phase.
For unknown reasons water biome colors don't work anymore under Spoutcraft (FFFUUUUU!!!). I left the graph in the pack anyway, maybe you'll be luckier with another client mod.
Regarding Iron Golems design I was inspired by paleolithic art, I hope you like it.
Wow, I just found this today, it's really good. I don't know what it is about it that I like so much but it just has something that is unlike the other packs. Maybe it's the special kind of niche it fills - realistic, without looking like the HD packs, not too fantasy, not minimalistic, not too dark. I like it.
