    Have you guys been keeping track of the snapshots? Lots of very cool new blocks, so many awesome ideas!






    Oh, it's been over a month and no new sneak peaks. Hope everything is fine! ^^<3 Also, you got your hands full with all the new stuff in the latest update that was just released. So much that can be punkified. I can't wait to see your ideas of how things should look! <3

    Hey Glimmar, everything alright? There hasn't been much activity here





    I'm still alive and kicking folks! Thank you for posting. I've been really, really busy with real life stuff I'm afraid...since January.


    I haven't had a chance to do anything since I last posted.


    Electron Kaleidoscope over on my Youtube channel alerted me to the fact that the Minecraft Forums here are about to close within a month. This was a complete and utter shock! I have been on these forums for around 10 years, first as a simple user and then very early on as a contributor with my one and only Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack.


    I just want to say the very biggest and warmest thanks to all of you who have come along and shared in the experience over the years. I have conversed with so many of you in what is a unique an excellent environment for the exchange of ideas, support and encouragement. There will be nothing similar to these forums and Minecraft will never be the same without this place.


    I am too old and too busy with RL at the moment to start over anywhere else, but if Curse/Forge/Twitch isn't effected by the Minecraft Forums closure then I will still hopefully be updating from time to time over there. Links on my first page here to my latest updates direct you to my CurseForge page anyway, so that will hopefully still be there.


    My legal copyright licence here, that also comes with the pack, will still be in force, so if I'm not updating as often as we'd both like, it is not a signal for anyone to take over and redistribute my artwork.


    Minecraft Forums was always my 'go to' place to meet with you all and to reliably find out info on Minecraft, to share ideas and be inspired. Nothing else compares.


    Please keep an eye on my CurseForge page for updates. If anyone has any info about whether that place is also closing, and could let me know, I would be very grateful. My cursory glance over there couldn't find any notice about it shutting down too.


    My thanks to Citric Squid and to you all for keeping this place so civilised and welcoming. I will miss not being able to post pics and videos and then getting your wonderful input by way of encouragement and ideas. Seriously, I have been very fortunate indeed to have such great support from all who have passed through.


    At least I can say I was there at the beginning...and stayed standing through to the end!


    End of an era.

    If the curse/forge page goes down, planetminecraft would probably be a good option.


    I do have a long-standing membership there that I've never used to show off GS...just posting when some users have used my work without permission. So over the years it's come to seem like the 'enemy'. I don't really like the tone of a lot of the posts and don't like the status system. I'm a bit old for all this 'Grand Wizard' level texture artist malarkey. It's bad enough that I'm a flippin' 'Blaze Extinguisher' here!! Lol! I'm a pretty old dude now and too stuck in my ways. Look up the film 'Gran Turino' that's probably the most accurate image of me these days...without any hint of racism I hasten to add!!! :D


    I agree though, Planet Minecraft might still be the best choice in the end if CurseForge goes down.

    MINECRAFT FORUMS CLOSURE!


    I have been on these forums for around 10 years, first as a simple user and then very early on as a contributor with my one and only Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack.


    I just want to say the very biggest and warmest thanks to all of you who have come along and shared in the experience over the years.

Links below to my latest GS updates direct you to my CurseForge page, so that will hopefully continue.


    My legal copyright licence, which also comes with the pack, will always be in force, so if I'm not updating as often as we'd both like, it is not a signal for anyone to take over and redistribute my artwork on any other website. This resource pack and the work therein is NOT being abandoned by it's creator, Glimmar.


    Minecraft Forums was always my 'go to' place to meet with you all and to reliably find out info on Minecraft, to share ideas and be inspired. Nothing else compares...period.


    Please keep an eye on my CurseForge page for updates:

    My sincere thanks to Citric Squid for making all this happen in the first place and for help over the years and especially to you all for keeping this place so civilised and welcoming. I will miss not being able to post pics and videos and then getting your wonderful input by way of encouragement and ideas.

    .....Legal

    ***Glimmar's Steampunk v.16 onwards contains a huge amount of new material. Commencing 2nd February 2015 all Glimmar's work, including the latest download, is subject to new conditions - for anything other than personal use, you must agree to these conditions before download and use***


    Legal

    Conditions:

    Please remember that by downloading/using any of the Glimmar's Steampunk resource packs and artwork you agree to the following terms and conditions:

    All content is protected as well as licenced under international copyright law.

    By default it may only be distributed by the author on minecraftforums.net, or other sites The Owner personally posts it on.

    In the event of Glimmar's extended absence from the Minecraft Forums, Glimmar's Steampunk remains copyright and the property of the Owner (Glimmar) according to the conditions laid out below. Any public distribution of the textures supplied within the 'Glimmar's Steampunk' resource pack and other downloadable Glimmar art assets, without Glimmar's written permission, is strictly forbidden.

    The Minecraft EULA does NOT supersede the Owner's copyright, this licence or conditions herein.



    You may:

    Take screenshots and post them here in my thread, anywhere on the Minecraft Forums* or any other third party websites*.

    Create videos and post them here on the Minecraft Forums* or any other third party websites*. Please let Glimmar know so he has the chance to add them to his user media gallery in the OP.

    Link to Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack thread on the Minecraft Forums, so other Minecraft users can enjoy Glimmar's Steampunk.

    *please attach appropriate credit and a link.


    You may NOT:

    Re-create any of the Glimmar's Steampunk packs.

    Edit/use/modify the textures or any art assets, other than for personal use.

    Upload any Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack files, textures or art assets to any third party servers, eg. Planetminecraft.com, etc.

    Use the Owner's pack for public display purposes as a base for creating your own pack.

    Claim as your own project / re-distribute in ANY way.

    Use ANY part of Glimmar's Steampunk for profit using such things as Adfly links, etc.

    Direct link to my downloads, or re-host my files or art assets. The Author considers this to be piracy, as it bypasses my offical thread and creates problems for both the Owner and the user when things don't work as expected. Instead please link to my official Minecraft Forum resource pack thread here.


    Any contravention of the above conditions will be reported and where necessary the Owner may claim damages and/or take other appropriate action to rectify the situation.




    Multiplayer Server/Map/Adventure Use

    GSv.16 onwards contains a huge amount of new material, consequently the whole pack is subject to new conditions as laid out below - commencing 2nd February 2015 the following conditions must be adhered to:-



    Distributing a seperate downloadable unmodified or modified version of Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack or any part thereof (eg. within 'mix' packs), for adventure maps or multiplayer server use, will be deemed as contravening my new licence, will be reported and may result in legal action.

    Please direct all your players to download the base GS resource pack from Glimmar's thread here on the Minecraft Forums (This means I get fair recognition for my original artwork, and your users understand properly where the textures you are recommending come from).

    You do not have permission to redistribute or host a modified stand alone version of the Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack or to 'direct link' to any of my resource pack files.

    ANY necessary modifications to my textures that you feel would be necessary for your world must be made as a separate add-on (ie. not a standalone complete) resource pack, with instructions on how to select and overlay Glimmar's base pack in the 'resource pack folder' in game.

    ANY modifications of Glimmar's Steampunk textures must be your own work. Mixing GS textures with work from any other publicly available resource pack is strictly forbidden.

    ANY modifications of Glimmar's Steampunk textures used for the purposes of making an 'add-on' resource pack remain the property of the owner of Glimmar's Steampunk, any original artwork you create is your own.

    Any 'add-on' resource pack made under the above conditions must be distributed through Glimmar's Resource Pack thread on the Minecraft Forums here, not hosted on your own website, separate MC forum thread or any other website.

    Post a link to your modified pack download in a comment post in Glimmar's Resource Pack thread on the Minecraft Forums and redirect your users to use this link (that way they can always get the most up to date official pack without having to wait for you to update your custom add-on version).

    Server admins, do not allow members to upload your modified pack on yours or other websites. They will be breaking the Owners terms of use and permission for your server to distribute a modified version of my pack through my thread may be withdrawn.


    Any contravention of the above conditions will be reported and where necessary the Owner may claim damages and/or take other appropriate action to rectify the situation.



    Mod Support Textures Use

    Conditions for making supporting textures for mods in the style of this pack are now the same as for Multiplayer/Server/Map/Adventure (see above). Exceptions to some of the above conditions may be made for existing Glimmer's Steampunk mod support artists, to give time to re-direct all users to download mod textures from the Glimmar's Steampunk thread on the Minecraft Forums. Please see the 'Fan Made Mod Support' section below for further clarification.





    .....Downloads


    To get the very best out of Glimmar's Steampunk please first install Optifine. Here's the link: https://optifine.net/home


    The Optifine mod makes use of my CTM 'connected textures', my animated 'BetterSkies', random animated extra mobs and villagers, animated GUIs, extended range of animated paintings, Better Colors, BetterLighting, etc.


    Without Optifine you will be missing out on all of the above and much more! This pack is now designed to take full advantage of the appropriate version of the Optifine mod.


    Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack will still work without installing Optifine, but your 'in-Minecraft' experience will not compare with what you see in the above showcase videos or pics.


    Please note: If minecraft begins to lag severely for you after installing Optifine, this is most likely due to the number of extra animated blocks, items, gui, mobs, etc. included in the GS resource pack. To fix, play around with options within Minecraft where, if you have installed Optifine, you'll now be able to switch off animations, and alter many other video settings, etc. I believe this can greatly increase frame rate for some, whilst still retaining the benefit of all those thousands of extra ctm textures.


    THIS PACK IS CURRENTLY EXCLUSIVE TO:

    MINECRAFT FORUMS Texture Pack Section (you're here now)
    CURSE/FORGE Texture Pack Section: link


    By downloading and/or using my 'Glimmar's Steampunk' texture pack, you agree and validate my licence and conditions of use, as laid out in my 'Legal' section above.

    ***Important note: all previous permissions granted for use of Glimmar's Steampunk are now deemed invalid as of 2nd Feb 2015. see my 'Legal' section above for new conditions.***

    * partially or completely derived from my textures.


    Contributions

    I am always happy to receive original alternative contributions in this thread, but I no longer wish to use the work of others directly in the texture pack. Unfortunately I now no longer have time to keep updating my Alternate Textures pack with contributions.
    If your submission makes use of my own work, please keep your posts within my Glimmar's Steampunk thread, as such derived artwork remains the property of the owner...me!

    All work must be original or adapted from my own work. Under no circumstances should you use work from another resource pack...even with the artist's permission, and please don't cut and paste images directly from Google. I wish to preserve the individual style of the pack and in so doing also avoid potential arguments regarding copyright.

    I am very grateful for everyone's input, whether it's just a friendly compliment, suggestion or donated alternative edit...it's always encouraging!





    .....GS Alternative Textures

    Download: Glimmar's Steampunk Alternative Textures


    Download: Glimmar's Steampunk 'User' Made Textures

    Please note: These downloads are not 'resource packs' that can just be selected in-game, they are a vast collection of original alternative textures which you can dip into to customise your personal version of my pack and, like the rest of my work, is only for Glimmar's Steampunk use, is copyright and is subject to my 'legal' conditions (see the relevant section in this post above).

    Any modifications of my work donated for use in the 'Glimmar's Steampunk User Made Textures' download is subject to my legal conditions. If a user submits his own original artwork and you wish to make use of this outside the confines of Glimmar's Steampunk then you must first seek written permission of the contributing artist before commencing work.

    Click the spoiler to see what's in the GS Alternative Textures downloads and some tips on swapping standard GS textures with my alternatives:


    Amongst other things there are alternative:

    boats and 'paddlesteamer' mod skins.
    32 and 64x minecarts.
    'airship' mod skins.
    mob and steampunk character skins.
    armor
    clocks
    skies
    paintings
    sets of stained clay
    various animated spawn_eggs
    sets of stained glass
    zombie horses
    animated redstone dust
    pumpkins
    fire and lava
    and hundreds of miscellaneous textures.

    In most cases, since MC 1.5, individual alternative textures can just be dropped into the appropriate folder in the resource pack, but you will need to check and change the file name, as all texture names were changed by Mojang in the MC 1.6 update. Some animated textures have accompanying '.mcmeta' or '.properties' files and if you wish to change these for an alt, you may need to edit or delete these particular files or Minecraft/MCPatcher might get a little confused. Some alternate textures like the steampunk clock or lo-res Better Skies will work fine with the '.mcmeta' and '.properties' files that are in the pack...it's just a case of dropping the alt texture in the right place (again, just make sure the alt file name is the same as the one you are replacing). Please check the 'Changelogs' in the pack or ask in my thread if something is still not clear. :)

    No work included in my 'GS Alternative Textures' downloads has been acquired from any other thread within the Minecraft forums, it includes both original artwork by me and work edited by others derived from my own alternate textures. Any work that is not my own has been freely (and generously) donated within this thread for use within this pack. Permission and submissions granted throughout this thread.


    .....Fan Made Mod Support

    This section is very much a fan-based endeavour.

    Glimmar's Introduction and Legal Conditions

    There are so many mods I would love to support, but I have to be realistic and admit any spare time I have is expended on improving the main pack. I have provided probably one of the largest collections of alternative textures for any pack (still growing) and some GS fans are using these and their own artistic skills to create sympathetic Steampunk textures for mods that compliment my pack. I am very grateful for their input and support and in particular to MegistusEligius for creating such a massive selection of Glimmar mod support textures presented below.

    If you would like to help support Glimmar's Steampunk by using my textures (see my collection of alts above) or your own skills to make Steampunk equivalent mod textures in the style of this pack, to add to the growing collection here, just give MegistusEligius a shout first or myself...and I'll give him a shout...he knows a lot more about Minecraft Mods and will probably know if something is already covered.

    If your contribution is more than just the odd texture, then have a chat with Glimmar about making your own shop (banner-sized) sign to hang here in 'Glimmars Mod Emporium' (See Megistus' example) and help make the place look like a real Victorian emporium...the kind of quirky place you'd really like to peruse for those weird and ingenious must have gadgets and gifts!

    ~Glimmar

    Conditions for Submitting Mod Textures:

    1. Any work submitted must only contain either your own original work and/or my own textures (found within this thread), modified/unmodified as you feel necessary to fit the mod.

    2. Please remove any textures belonging to other artists before submitting your mod support file/s in the Glimmar's Steampunk Resource pack thread. With the best will in the world, I cannot be expected to be familiar with all your sources for the textures you submit, and what might be fine for personal use is not legal to distribute in this thread. Even if it was, it is a matter of principal and originality that we don't use work from other texture packs. If you're not sure where something came from...then leave it out...better to be safe than sorry!

    3. Please upload your mod texture support link here in my thread as a post to be included in the Mod Emporium (consider making a banner and opening up a 'shop stall'. See Megistus' example). I now require all download links involving my textures to be exclusively sited in the Glimmar's Steampunk thread here on the MC forums.

    4. Make sure I am clearly credited in your post in the mod thread for which you are making supporting textures and then link back to my thread here for the duration of your mod texture support pack availability. You may post screenshots and banners and other advertising material in the mod thread for the purposes of highlighting your Glimmar's Steampunk mod support.

    5. Make sure you provide proper documentation in your mod support pack by way of a 'readme doc' including a statement that my modified textures are copyright, with clear credit and link information back to my thread .

    4. Under no circumstances may my textures be redistributed in a standalone texture resource pack, ie as a Tekkit or FTB Glimmar's Steampunk pack. Mod support textures in the style of Glimmar's Steampunk, using the Owner's art assets, must only be offered as individual mod support texture files to work in conjuction with the Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack. Put simply, the Glimmar's Steampunk reource pack must only be downloaded via the Owner's official threads on the Minecraft Forums and Curse/Forge sites. Permission is not given to redistribute/host a complete modded standalone version of Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack, nor to redistribute/host an original complete texture resource pack with any of my textures included ('mix pack').

    I am uploading the whole thing as its own texture pack - to install, just add it in conjunction with Glimmar's texture pack. What I am uploading is NOT a complete texture pack, though there are some alternate textures, it loads pretty much NO core textures. It is meant to compliment Glimmar's work, certainly not replace it. Ah, the joys of being able to load multiple texture packs :)

    .....Old Mod Support


    compiled by ksheep

    Updated 20th March 2013

    Alright, here's Version 0.6.1 of the Mod Compendium. I fixed up Buildcraft so it'll actually work properly now, although I only added a few new textures (Emerald and Sandstone pipes). I also fixed the engines, as their textures had been shifted slightly in a previous update. Various other items are currently filler, but I hope to get to them… sometime next week. Unfortunately, my schedule is completely booked up through Sunday…

    Furthermore, we have more textures for ComputerCraft, created by Blanco_Meneige and building off of VermillionTwilight's work in that area. We now have a rather good looking GUI for a fair number of the ComputerCraft devices, although I have been experiencing some odd behavior with the monitor. They are included in the above download, and if anyone can figure out how to get the monitor to work properly, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I hope you know how much you are appreciated. So many pack makers have abandoned the game and moved on. Im so glad you are still here!


    Thank you so much!


    Well, one of the reasons I keep going is because of the nice comments people take the time to make here...like yours. :)


    Let me tell you, an encouraging comment really does make a world of difference after hours and hours struggling over a llama face...seriously, no joke! For ages I've swayed between thinking my llama looks like a long-necked Alsatian dog or a giant rabbit! Lol! :wacko:

    .....A First Look at GS Llamas'



    check out the spoiler below for more pics:





    There are 4 standard llamas; white, gray, creamy and brown and 8 more variations for those who use Optifine.


    Currently working on all the decor now. When all is complete I will upload as the GSv23 update. The New Year is turning out to be busy in real life, but I'm sure I will be able to get this out sooner than later.


    Thanks for stopping by and again Happy New Year!. :)

    Glim. I’ve started editing your texture pack to suit my tastes. I’ve been using gimp (do you use gimp? What do you use?). I was wondering where do you get these textures for the blocks? Is there a website for them? What is do is look up seamless textures on google images to download them. Is that fine?


    I am currently a personal texture pack that is largely derived from you. I’m currently editing the pink terra-cotta to resemble pink plaster walls you’d see on baroque apartments and buildings and palaces that have brightly colored plaster walls. I’m attempting to create a baroque architecture texture pack. Type into google search - baroque St. Petersburg. You’d see images of neoclassical buildings and palaces with brightly colored walls. I want to change the terra-cotta blocks to resemble those brightly colored plaster walls common in baroque style buildings. I want to build a neoclassical baroque city in Minecraft using a custom texture pack to make it look like St. Petersburg in Russia, or some 18th century polish city. Can you give me suggestion?


    Yes, I use gimp mostly.


    All the textures are created by me, not downloaded from other websites...yes I will trawl the internet and Google images for inspiration, but nothing is copy pasted. All seamless and random textures are created by me.


    There are websites that specialize in all the textures and also seamless versions under the sun that you could wish for, but these usually always cost for a licence or per texture. Yes, there are many free textures, but these are more limited in scope. If you rely too heavily on ready made 'real life' textures, you may find it more difficult to come up with blocks that look 'natural', believable and consistent in a Minecraft cube world.


    I usually also take photographs myself for natural textures like dirt, sand, gravel, etc, particularly when the sun is out low in the sky, then you get wonderful shadows and contrast that make your textures feel more 3-dimensional. It's surprising what you can collect in even the most mundane places that, by using filters and careful tweaking in gimp, can be made into any texture you want.


    Well, as regards the terracotta, I tried my best to make it work as a natural dry clay material that works in the landscape for adventuring and survival, but I also had rough, aging wall plaster in mind for those wishing to use it as a building material. I think all texture artists are forced to take the middle ground for lots of textures that are found out in the landscape or they will quickly become annoying to the majority of users. To a certain extent the more you specialize in your choice of texture, the less practical it will be for the majority. This is something I have found to my cost!


    The only real advice I can give, as before, is to experiment and see how it turns out when you try to build with your chosen textures. If you visited the resource pack website that Norzeteus advised you to look at, you will see there is an incredible amount of information and help there that I couldn't possible replicate. In all honesty I have little enough time for working on my own textures to be able to give any meaningful suggestions or advice.


    Just remember that if you are using my texture pack as the basis for a personal pack, don't be tempted later to upload it for others to use, that's something my licence forbids.


    Good luck in your endeavors! :)

    He must have taken it from an older version of the pack as your Alex skin was removed within the last couple months, if you recall.


    Oh yes, certainly not blaming you or the TheRealEmfire, it was removed immediately. :)


    You have both been very supportive and understanding in removing the texture as soon as pointed out. Just shows though how once it gets used at some point in the past it kind of spreads everywhere. :D


    By the way, a Happy Christmas and Great New Year!

    I made a Texturepack which is based on what i liked about Misas back in Beta (with Wildgrass etc.) it currently uses a lot of Textures from the Original as well as from the patches since 1.6, some who like Misas may like it as well, even tho i only Textures i did where Blocks and some others details.

    Its hard to say that this isnt advertising, so if you think that it is inappropriate i will delete this comment.


    If you still want to take a look here is a link to my Planetminecraft Post:



    I like a lot of the textures in this pack, and the overall design, it looks like a great pack, however, most probably by accident, you are using at least one of my textures without permission...namely the HD 'alex' character skin. I've got a feeling that this must have been offered to 'Misas HD Realistic Overhaul' at some stage in the past, so I am not blaming you.


    I have sent a post to you asking that you remove it.


    Best wishes and thanks in advance. :)
