    I gave up on pictures.


    Well it is stated in the first post that the pack requires the use of a patcher, and it's outright stated she won't use reviews of it unpatched. :/

    That's probably a good idea! And once you've got it done it'll be much simpler.

    Purple? Huh. Dark purple or light purple?

    Hmm... either or. I'd lean in favor of a blue-ish purple over a red-ish one though.

    Fair enough! Some acid green or purple lava would be cool.

    Oooooh O: man I can't wait to get back to my main computer so I can play with all these new textures. DO WANT.

    Edit: Sun and Moon blocks?! Darn it Thistle you are scratching my itch for Exalted-themed texture packs <3

    That's a really nice explanation, Tluthal. Do you mind if I put it on the front page of this thread?

    :D Go for it! I can edit it to be a little more general if you like.

    Edit: Here, under the spoiler.


    First off, download the NON-CUSTOMIZER folder Thistle has set up. This is very important, and it'll work even if the customizer is down, which is very helpful. If you want to, you can also download from the CUSTOMIZER to make editing things a little easier. This assumes you're using the pack from the CUSTOMIZER, but I'm sure you can figure out how to do it without the customizer.

    Make a new folder [FOLDER X] somewhere on your computer. Unzip both packs into their own folders within FOLDER X. I'd recommend re-naming them so that you can tell which is which. Now, copy the files from the CUSTOMIZER folder into FOLDER X.

    Ore texture problems: These are usually errors caused by the customizer!
    Open up Photoshop/GIMP, whatever image editing program you like so long as it has LAYERS and saves TRANSPARENCY. Open up the terrain.png in FOLDER X in said program.

    Grab your stone texture from the png and make a new layer, UNDER the base layer. If it's not under, you won't be able to see your ores! Paste the texture to this under-layer, and position it behind each of the ores so that you don't screw up your tiling. Bam!

    Changing out or fixing textures: The customizer sometimes has texture errors where part of a texture is missing, but this can also be used if you don't want to be bothered with the customizer, but do want to use a flavor pack.

    Open up Photoshop/GIMP, whatever image editing program you like so long as it has LAYERS and saves TRANSPARENCY. Open up the terrain.png in FOLDER X in said program.

    Remember that NON-CUSTOMIZER folder? Go open it up outside your image editor. Dig around for the alternates folder [it's easy to find], and go through them until you find the texture you're looking for. THEY ARE NOT LABELED, BUT NUMBERED. So remember this number.

    Back to your image editing software, you're going to open up that file you found before. Now just copy and paste it into the correct position. Save your terrain.png!

    Randomobs and such: This is geared towards those using the customizer, but who want the multiple mob skins.
    This is the other reason to download the non-customizer version! Open up your mobs folder in FOLDER X and the NON-CUSTOMIZER folder. Copy the mobs from the NON-CUSTOMIZER over to FOLDER X. I'd also recommend doing this with the GUI since certain textures aren't available from the customizer yet! There may be other areas where this is relevant but I can't remember off the top of my head.

    Once you're satisfied, zip everything except the ZIP files and the CUSTOMIZER and NON-CUSTOMIZER folders together. Copy your new zip over to your texture pack folder, and ta-da!

    I realize this looks like a lot of work and very complicated, but it's actually pretty easy. It's made my life a lot easier since both of the texture packs I use and love have a lot of options that I like to take advantage of, and having this already in place has saved me a huge lot of hassle - and now that Thistle has the options in the direct download, I don't have to worry about the customizer going down.

    :D Try downloading the from the not-the-customizer links. Make a new folder [FOLDER X] somewhere on your computer. Unzip both packs into their own folders within FOLDER X.

    Anyways, hope that helped. 8)

    Speaking of customizer issues, Thistle: The purple fairy and default wools are mixed up in the customizer - it insists the default purple wool is the purple fairy wool and vice versa. You may want to correct this.

    Ooooh frames.

    A basilisk would be interesting, though that's filed under snake.

    Just tried out the updates, and SQUEEEEE at the swirly stone. It is indeed very busy, and that's wonderful. Hehehehe. I also really like your book interface, it's super pretty.

    I tried the spiraly rock for the fairy texture - oh did I ever try. I think I had like... five failed textures before I decided that spiral rock would be just really... really... busy. But how about this, I'll put it up on the customizer as an alternate and let you pick?


    Sure, that works :D I'm sure it is busy, but that's half the fun of it for me - sooooo much swirly. Swirly overload. Hehehehehe.

    Quote from Thistle
    Beds, plants, armor... all that is going to get done for the flavors! I'm just trying to find out which one you guys want to see first, before all the other textures that are going to get done!


    Sweet. Well I'm sure you can guess what my vote is [Hint: Fairy XD]

    Quote from Thistle
    The fairy is my favorite too. Asian is coming in a close second, which sort of surprised me as I was figuring it'd be the dungeon pack.


    I still need to try out some of the other packs - I think dungeon's next on the list for me.

    Quote from Thistle

    That means the server done broke. You'd have to contact the guys who run the website to see what's going on.


    Another reason to make the alternates available in the main download. :3 Like I suggested before: Just make an alternates folder with the different textures. Amalah's LoafCraft has it organized pretty nicely - for example, the alternate wool textures are all in one file, and one can just copy and paste them over onto the terrain.png; same with the stone textures and such. It's very useful since I use the silver varient for it, but don't have to go to the customizer, which is down a lot. I usually end up editing the terrain.png anyways so that I don't have to go through the process of picking my wools out each time.

    Oh, speaking of wools and texture packs, some friends and I are playing a 'legacy game' [IE we each play until we're bored/somebody else asks for the save/death, then pass it on], and each of us uses a different texture pack. This has resulted in some pretty dang cool-looking construction, since we don't know what it'll look like for the other people. Here's some screenshots from it:



    I started the pattern here, but the others added onto it. This was fun and got the "that looks COMPLETELY DIFFERENT in my game."


    Aaaand this was my response.


    One of the others did this, but it's so cool I had to share.

    Yay snapshot textures! :D

    I'll throw out an odd suggestion: swirly rock for the fairy pack? [ALL THE SWIRLIES. AAAAALL OF THEM.]

    Maybe beds customized to the flavors? Though you have a *lot* of beds already which is pretty rad :D

    More green is always nice? Ooh or some other plant/flower options? That would be pretty neat too.

    HMMM

    Flavor-specific armor would also be cool. [Like kimonos or samurai armor for the asian pack!]

    Okay I think that's all of my random spazzing.

    I've been rocking the fairy flavor since I saw it, and it's seriously awesome. I love it!
