Nov 24, 2013I've seen way too many servers in my day, but this one seems to hold a sort of professionalism that seems so unheard of these days. Before even clicking on minecraft in my task bar, I can tell with no doubt that this is a good server.Posted in: PC Servers
This will provide a hefty amount of time to waste during my two month break before my last year of school.
I look forward to it guys!
Nov 24, 2013A more professional, grammatically correct post will attract the builders you need. Add a few pictures of what it is now, maybe a server logo or banner. Give us information on WHY we should help you.Posted in: Server Recruitment
People respond much better to things that are well presented.
Nov 24, 2013I'd suggest playing some of the games you play, and find friends that way. Often people you pick up from the minecraft forums community are not what you would be expecting.Posted in: Server Recruitment
If you don't play that much multiplayer, just find a mini-games server like us.shotbow.net or something like that.
If you have Garry's mod, you could find a few servers like that.
In my personal experience, unless you are the funniest guy out there, you will not have much luck at all in being recognized in the YouTube community. Most YouTube'ers do it because that is what they love doing, if you are only there for subs/views, then you are there for the wrong reason.

This section here specifically is bad advice. If grass was a normal texture, it'd be fine, but it's not: grass is recolored. Gray pebbles will just turn into grass, and dirt will turn a sickly brown-mixed-green.
Also, the example you gave is at an angle, where top-down should be the example because that's what you should be texturing it as.
I forgot about the recoloring Minecraft does to the grass in the game, So thank you for pointing that out. Regardless of that feature with the grass, you could still apply this technique for other textures as well. Stone, wooden planks, wool, etc.
The angle does not matter in an image like this. If you are analyzing what is in the image, and how it works, then the 'angle' doesn't matter. I talk about layers, and what is beneath and what is on the top.
Regardless, we all have different techniques and abilities, and it's really not how you approach it, but what the end product is that matters. Hard work will always pay off, especially for High definition texture making.
Nov 14, 2013I'd highly suggest analyzing an image of grass from Google, or from your own backyard. You will seriously notice some very interesting features.Posted in: Resource Pack Discussion
The first thing I look at in an image like this is the layering, What is at the front, and what is in the back?
There seems to be a darker brown color in the background. This will provide contrast to your grass texture and will also draw more attention to the grass itself, as that will be a lighter shade.
The next layer suggests a 'stone', or a tan/sandstone color/texture. This layer also features a more gravel/pebble look. It would be very useful to experiment on this layer, delete and add certain parts, etc. Just remember that it is not the most important layer, and the grass is going on the front.
The grass layers of this image are very complex. It looks like the single grass strands each have their own lighter to darker gradient of tree green. What you can do, is you can draw a few examples of grass strands, with a gradient, and distort them or bend them using Photoshop tools. You would then copy and paste multiples of these examples, making sure not to place same thing twice right next to each other. This will create a good first layer to the image. You can keep doing this, but making each successive layer lighter. It is a great deal of work,and quite a bit of determination would be in order, but the result would definitely be worth it.
Also, remember that humans have a super-ability to notice and identify patterns. If a portion of the texture is lighter than the rest, that is an instant giver away. Try and tile your texture one after the other. Even going in Minecraft flatland would reveal any tiling/pattern issues. Try to make it seamless, and you'll have it perfect.
This sort of process, where you analyse the layers of the image, and the certain aspects of each portion of an image can relate to more than just grass. Most, if not all of the textures in Minecraft can be based off of an image, and can be approached in a very similar way.
I long await some results!!
Hope I helped!,

It doesn't even have to be Latin, any other (ABC notation) language would be of some inspirational use.

The Dead one
Bill was walking home one night when he noticed something a black green figure across the street from his house. He tried making it out he had no luck whatsoever. He made himself believe that it was a bush. The next morning he woke up and looked out the window nothing was there. He walked into hist kitchen he looked in there it was he turned the light on *Wooosh* a breeze came through it was gone.
That night he went to bed before he could fall asleep he heard "I'm going to- I'm going to- I'm going to WASH YOUR CLOTHES!" He was creeped out he ran to his phone he dialed 911 "WASH YOUR CLOTHES!!!!!" He heard from the distance *Beeep the phone cord was cut*
"OH GOD HELP ME!" Bill screamed The green figure washed him up he was gone.
The end I made this right on the spot ;D.
I had no idea what was going on, compared to the OP's story, this is absolute crapola.
ZeWind, your story gave me a chill. I will be thinking about that one for the rest of the day :/
