Either you wait until Notch and Nick have actually made contact and established some sort of working relationship, or you suggest that they do so first, and then discuss about making the Painterly Pack the default.
Why not? It is a perfectly good suggestion, if not a terribly well worked out one. If we were only allowed discuss things notch was officially working on these forums would be pretty empty.
My two cents: While the current textures probably need some updating these ones aren't general enough, minecraft is a very open ended game, these textures would make it a very specific type of fantasy game as soon as they were introduced. Best leave them as an awesome, but optional, add on. as far as I know the current textures aren't permenant anyway so we'll probably see them updated at some point.
Now there's a valid point.
Hmm, didn't think of it that way.
Default textures do need a spruce though. Brother saw me playing Minecraft with default textures, and his responce was "Wtf is this ****"
With painterly textures "Omg, looks.... hmmmm" <walks over to his laptop and asks me how to download it>
On second thought....
Spiders, Swords, Bows, Survival, Exploration/Adventure......
Minecraft isn't a fantasy setting?
