Copy the folders inside the folder "FILES" and paste them in the Minecraft.jar folder inside the Minecraft bin

THIS IS NOT ANYTHING LIKE A TEXTURE PACK:

It IS a texture pack because it has no coding and just textures. BUT, you did do a nice job on the texture.

It does nothing when you put it in the texture packs folder... You have to paste it in the minecraft.jar.

"We"? Who's "we"? All we've been doing is arguing on this mods comment section for months. You and I are the only ones who really kept on going. Look at Rancor. He didn't even reply...

I guess. Oh god I feel like an idiot by keeping this going for months. XD But really, those people made two or three comments each. You, and I have both been going on about it for months now.

This is NOT a texture pack! It has CODING! All it does is edit the default texture pack.

OFFTOPIC: Would this work if i put it into a texture pack instead of minecraft.jar?

EDIT: AWW YEA! It works! Having this content in my custom texture pack is like a big bowl of epic has been dumped all over my minecraft world!

Actually it only edits the default texture pack. BUT if I put it in my texture packs .zip file I can have this sun in my texture pack too!

This should be a texturepack...mods have class files...unless they're a language mod....

A texture pack can't have sun phases... Only moon phases.

Well there's no class files..only textures...and there are no textures that say sun_phases or something related....

Well if this went in the texture packs section people would be confused because it wouldn't do anything when put in the texture packs folder.

Well if you have to put it in the description to edit the default texture pack it's obviously not a texture pack. Its a texture pack mod. I put this content in my texture pack and now my texture pack has this sun. It's basically content to put in any texture pack.

There's only one sun.png? Not 2 or more...

That's what this mod does. It gives the sun phases.

Lasts 1 Ã Ã ½ minutes.


There's no sun phases, but the red glow makes it look like it, that is actually in the game already.

Now you...

Ya because growing and shrinking TOTALLY requires more than one texture. I'VE SEEN THE DEFAULT TEXTURE PACK THERE IS ONLY ONE sun.png!!!

EDIT: Is this argument really still going? Lol.
  • Ghostgunner
  • Level 41
  • Master Necromancer
  • April 27, 2012, 6:05 am
In the "mod" there's also only one sun.png. And I don't know if it is.

Every one conplains about it, so let me make it clear... This could be considered a texture pack, the problem is that I don't know how make one, as it gliches out for some reason, number two i wanted people to be able to use other texture packs with this sun
  • hunterblur

  • April 25, 2012, 3:24 am
In that case I could just make the texture pack for you and email it to you. PM me your email address don't comment it.

Read the description. It says it changes with the time of day. If you think texture packs do that you are obviously not very experienced. I know this and I've only been playing since Christmas 2011. Good job paying attention.
  • Ghostgunner

  • April 11, 2012, 12:29 pm
And how do you even know if the description is right?
  • hunterblur

I looked at the files. And there's more than one sun texture... And DS_STORE files were in there. I don't know what those are but I'm pretty sure they are pretty similar to CLASS files.
  • Ghostgunner
  • Level 41
  • Master Necromancer
  • April 12, 2012, 2:47 am
The DS_STORE files don't mean anything, they are just randomly generated by some program. The mod/texture pack well work fine if you remove those.
  • hunterblur
  • Level 1
  • New Explorer
  • April 25, 2012, 3:26 am
Well its not a texture pack because if you try to put it in the texture pack folder nothing happens. Its a mod because you have to put it in the minecraft.jar.
  • Ghostgunner
  • Level 41
  • Master Necromancer
  • April 25, 2012, 4:16 am
And what do you think minecraft does when you load a texture pack?
  • Ghostgunner
  • Level 41
  • Master Necromancer
  • April 11, 2012, 12:25 pm
Well then how does it come that it doesn't change any classes but only textures?
  • hunterblur
  • Level 1
  • New Explorer
  • April 12, 2012, 1:24 am
You paste the files into the minecraft.jar... Not the texture packs folder... If that's not enough for you then I don't know what is.
  • Ghostgunner
  • Level 41
  • Master Necromancer
  • April 12, 2012, 2:46 am
For some texturepacks you need to paste it in there.

It isn't even a feature of the mod. I looked into the files and the mod only changes textures.
  • hunterblur
  • Level 1
  • New Explorer
  • April 12, 2012, 1:27 am
And that is why it is not a texture pack. It changes textures. Texture packs can't do that.

Keeps the same texture for the sun the whole time.
