I think a challenge should be to some-how make the highest resolution texture without lag: e.g. 256x256 ;but with as little lag as possible instead of using optifine or any other mods...
I'm not even sure what you're suggesting. If you're suggesting an optimized texture to cause as little framerate loss as possible, it would have to be very flat (i.e. no fine detail) and have a very small palette. Think Sphax, but heavily aliased and saved in an 8-bit (or lower) format.
But that doesn't really make a difference, since even the pixels for a flat black square are all still loaded and consume video RAM. The only significant difference is that the files would use a little less space in hard drive memory.
The only way to improve the framerate is to use textures with less resolution than default (i.e. 8x8, 4x4, 2x2, 1x1). Anything above 16x is going to use more memory, no matter what.
Well, It's been a while. I couldn't get the pics on a bigger size, maybe in some weeks I can upload in-game pics.
Anvil top p1, anvil top p2, redstone block, dark prismarine, smooth sandstone, bread, jukebox top, bone, lava, pumpkin side, wololo, stone axe, dark prismarine, redstone lamp (off), skeleton skull (front)
I also made the third anvil part, a carrot, both potatos, jukebox sides, stone pickaxes, spades, emerald block, diamond ore (without the stone) and the gold hoe, but my wi-fi connection sucks too much...
Hey guys, dunno if anyone remembers me but I made a few packs a couple years ago.
Anyway I've gotten back into Minecraft and modding especially, and when creating models for 1.8 I decided to make a small JSON model viewer to help. It's pretty early stages and I'll probably add more features later, but if you want to try it out the source (and instructions) are here and you can get the .jar here.
At the moment it supports viewing both vanilla and modded (different directory) textures and parent models.
Here's one of my models in the viewer:
If you have any suggestions or bugs please hmu either here or on github. Cheers
And who in their right mind would ever NOT build a house from bacon...
I quite like the red toned planks for your jungle planks... They look like instead of being turned into planks, all that could be done was hew off the bark and work with that... very rough and would work well with a lot of jungle-y builds.
