I don't know about anyone else, but I find the tall grass to be a kind of annoying. It takes up entire fields at times and is 1/2 a block I believe, or at least it feels like it. It looks really bad too...am I the only one that thinks this? DON'T say I just need a texture pack, I know that would make everything look better but thats not what I'm saying.
It only "looks really bad" in the same sense that the entire game does. Which it doesn't, it's just the "8-bit nostalgia" aesthetic that the game shoots for. With that in mind, it actually looks quite nice. :smile.gif:
There's been a mod around for a while that adds this sort of thing. There wouldn't have been, if people didn't like this stuff. Maybe it's not just you who doesn't like it, but I suspect you're in the minority in any case...
Just get a texture pack. :wink.gif: (I ignore people who think they can tell me what not to say; I'll say what I like, thank you very much. And, by the way, since you told me not to say it, that means you knew someone would, so... you're being deliberately obtuse and you know better. Stop it. :tongue.gif: [Not that I expect you to listen to me any more than I listened to you -- you wanna gripe, you've got as much right as any of us. :wink.gif:])
I don't think tall grass is "pretty" because grass is grass to me. However, I think it adds a large degree of aesthetic value to the game that it didn't have before. So I feel tall grass is a good thing. It does seems to lag things down a bit, which is kind of surprising.
Anyway, if you don't like tall grass on your in-game lawn, there's nothing stopping someone from just mowing the lawn a little. Tall grass seems destroyable in 1 hit. It doesn't grow back as far as I could see, though I only chopped down a few.
