    hah. I made a very similar font a while back


    Those capital letters look like they're six pixels wide, instead of the normal five. Did you find a way to change the default letter spacing?

    I made a custom font with some more cartoonish, less default-style letters. It's a bit weird to read at first, but I personally got used to it pretty quickly.

    The only other thing that I can think of is that some of your files might have capitalization in their names. Other than that I'm not sure. CTM works for me.

    What resource pack(s) are you using where CTM is working? I'll see if they work in my game.

    I've found updating the pack version in pack.mcmeta fixed it completely.

    Do you mean the pack format? As far as I know, 3 is the only one that works in 1.11; is there something else that I'm missing?

    I've found that CTM doesn't work at all in 1.11 (I've tried multiple resource packs, and yes, I've checked that it was enabled in my settings). Does anyone know a reason or explanation for this?

    I have a suggestion. Custom grass color based on dimension! Right now the nether uses the desert grass. I would like to make the nether grass bright orange or red. And I would like to make the end grass purple. Or is there already a way to do this?


    You can use the grid colourmap format to specify biome colours for the Nether and End. Here's the file that explains how it works, and here's the template so you can get an idea of what it looks like. The Nether has a biome ID of 8 and the End has a biome ID of 9, so putting solid coloured lines along x=8 and x=9 will give the respective dimensions those biome colours.

    Small-ish update to the pack. I finished off the stitched blocks.png:



    I also tweaked the overworld lightmap, changed some of the sky and fog colours, and added CTM for reeds, vines, and spruce leaves (although CTM isn't working in 1.11, so it doesn't really affect anything.)


    I also created a lightmap and custom fog colour for the nether:


    For names, I was thinking of calling the pack Chromestone Adventures, or maybe just Chromestone. I haven't had any other ideas yet, so I don't know if I can come up with something better.

    Since early this year, I've been working on a 16x pixel art resource pack. It features a bright colour palette, and a mild fantasy theme (which I will probably expand upon as I add more stuff). So far, I've mostly done block textures- I've completed around 85% of them, and also done a bit of work on items. I'm posting it here in the hope that I can get some feedback and pointers. I also need some ideas for what to name it, so let me know if you have any good ones.


    Pictures:


    Here's a texture sheet with all the blocks I've done so far:



    The pack has a lightmap and custom sky/fog colours, so I recommend using Optifine.


    Stuff I'm going to do before properly releasing the pack:


    - More blocks

    - Water/lava textures

    - Use custom models to disable biome shading on leaves and grass

    - Disable random rotations for blocks like grass and stone

    - Biome CTM textures for blocks

    - Particles

    - Lightmaps and sky/fog for the Nether and End

    - CTM for pressure plates, buttons etc.

    OKAY I'm editing this post because I need to ask for feedback. I have tried successive iterations of stone slabs, and I am about done with stone slabs. It is so difficult. No matter what I make it looks wrong in game. The first two were obviously bad, but every one after that has just been... not enough. I don't know what to do. Halp




    I like the designs of the first, second, and fourth ones, although the green stone seems kind of weird (unless your natural stone is green, in which case it's fine). With the first one, I would suggest making the cracks a bit longer and thinner; as they are, they look more like gouges in the stone, especially with the strong highlights underneath them. Or you could get rid of the cracks and use blemishes/darker splotches instead, to keep it more smooth-looking.

    A while back, there was a brief discussion about how Optifine's mipmapping blurs texture resolutions that aren't powers of 2 (in this case, it was 24x).

    Quote from Drazile12»

    I don't know how long it's been like this for, but I just discovered that Minecraft no longer supports textures with resolutions that aren't powers of two :steve_rage:


    The textures below have a resolution of x24, and have been automatically scaled up to a blurry x32.


    EDIT: It's Optifine, which I only started using recently, not Minecraft itself.



    The problem is still there in Optifine's current version. Is there any hope of getting this fixed, or will I have to tell everyone to turn off mipmapping for 24x items when I release my pack?

    Hang on, what? Is there a workaround for this? I've made a bunch of item textures in 24x, and I'm going to be very annoyed if I have to redo them in a different resolution. (are you sure it's powers of two and not multiples of 16? 48x could work, if that's the case.)

    This is some real ******** you're pulling on us, Mojang.


    EDIT: It's actually Optifine that's blurring the textures, not Minecraft itself. Haven't bothered testing to see if the problem is only with a specific version, but turning off mipmaps seems to fix it. The mipmapping in vanilla Minecraft doesn't seem to do anything; it's only Optifine.

    Like this?

    or something like this?


    The first one looks more round, but I like the shading on the outline of the second one.

    It's been a long time since I did textures but I finally sat down and grinded through 2 set of tools and dyes (and then some)

    Items (in order): Ink Sac, Lapis Lazuli, Cocoa Beans, Cactus Green, Light Gray Dye, *skip, duplicate*, Purple Dye, Light Blue Dye, Dandelion Yellow, Pink Dye, Magenta Dye (had to break outside of the palette colors for this one), Lime Green Dye, Orange Dye, Cyan Dye, Gray Dye, Rose Red, Bone Meal, Wooden Sword, Wooden Pickaxe, Wooden Ace, Wooden Shovel, Wooden Hoe, Painting, Item Frame, Sign, Stone Sword, Stone Pickaxe, Stone Axe, Stone SHovel, Stone Hoe, and Structure Void


    I really wanted to do unique textures for each dye but the limited colors I'm using in SteelFeather's palette really made it difficult. I suspect to break outside the palette many more times, but doing it for a dye really disheartened me.


    EDIT


    I usually blast through textures and sometimes make things look rougher than intended

    Smoothed out the lapis


    EDIT 2: THE SEQUEL


    The lapis still continued to bug me so I started playing around with it. I looked up a lot of gemstones to see how light plays on it and this is what I got


    old-new


    I like it but what do you guys think? Gems remain to be the most complicated thing to do.

    I used this picture as a reference


    Well, actual lapis is more like a smooth rock than a translucent gemstone. I'd suggest drawing it like a normal shaded material, and maybe giving it a backlight to show that it's shiny.

    Does anyone know how to change the "held block" biome colour for things like grass and leaves? I've set all my colourmaps to white and used the McPatcher grid format, but they still show up with green shading when in my inventory.


    I also can't seem to get rid of the Roofed Forest colour overlay; I've created a custom grid-format colourmap in the /mcpatcher/colormap folder and specified it to apply to grass blocks, but I still get the brown-green biome shading in-game.

    Tried out some different colour schemes for forest leaves; which of these do you guys like better? I prefer the blue-green oak leaves and the orange birch leaves, but they don't look as good when you put them together.

    I love the jungle planks, and I'm so glad I caught your stream! :D


    Here's all of the planks I've made so far:



    L->R,T->B: Birch, Oak, Spruce, Jungle.

    I changed the Oak and Spruce to be shaded more consistently with the Jungle planks. I'm still iffy on the birch, but shadows on one side are a no-no, because it's a continuous plank idea.


    These are some really nice textures, and you've made an interesting choice with the dark jungle planks. For the birch planks, you could give them a solid highlight along the top, so that it looks like they have sloped edges.
