Thanks for the kind words friends, but alas the life of Isolation is over. I'm saddened to end it, I had good fun with it, but as you can all obviously tell I've moved on from Minecraft and texture packs in general. It's kind of sad, I feel like I'm letting go of my baby... I'll honestly call this texture pack one of my proudest creations.
I need to apologise, it's been selfish of me to hold onto this pack for so long and continually getting people's hopes up. It really was just hard to let go...
But as of now, the pack is officially discontinued - as a result, I will release the final version of my texture pack for all to download. It's not complete nor up to date with the current Minecraft, but it has extra blocks I've worked on as seen in the Works-In-Progress images, and it's set in the style of a resource pack, so it should be somewhat compatible with the modern Minecraft, I haven't tested it too recently. In the .zip you'll also find a WIP folder - it has the .psd files of some of the stuff I was working on, most of it you've already seen and/or it's included in the pack. I could never get connected textures to work properly...
And some final notes. Feel free to download the pack, mix and match it to suit your needs, hell even make your own textures if you want to add to it. All I ask is that out of courtesy towards myself and Isolation, you don't redistribute the pack for commercial profit. The work is still under a Creative Commons 3.0 license in any case. Unfortunately I'm sure someone will, but figured I might as well say it here.
If anyone would like to officially continue the pack, you can feel free to send me a personal message, or message me on my Youtube account, where I'll be more likely to receive it. We'll take it from there
Thank you all for the wonderful ride and introducing me to my love of digital and graphic art! Currently studying graphic design and animation at University myself, and you all played a part in my journey! So, without further adieu, here is the link to the final iteration of Isolation. Enjoy guys!
[As a sidenote, it's possible I'll continue this at some point in the future if I get back into Minecraft. So if you see a random update in a year's time: hoo-rah. But can't promise anything, as it stands now, this project is dead.]
Night is falling. You sit alone in your cabin, your heartbeat echoing throughout the rickety walls. Yet as you sit there, you hear another sound outside. Footsteps. You're alone, cold, in a small shack... and you hear dragging, uneven footsteps, arriving at your door.

i would think so too ... it is supposed to be SMOOTH stone ^^ make the parts between the single rocks less dark or the rock itself darker and it will look a lot better (the pattern and overall style of the stone is very good, just the coloring is a bit too harsh :wink.gif: )
the term smooth in this case means unrefined. real stones aren't usually smooth unless exposed to the elements for long periods.
@appleslinky: me likey.. can't wait to get my hands on it!
Thanks guys, I really appreciate your comments :3 And you know what? Within the hour, you can all give it a test run! That's right boys and girls, I'm going to release v0.1 of the pack today, so you can all get your greasy hands on it!
I'm just going to see if I can make a quick glowstone before I upload.
