AEON 1.6.2

a complete overhaul of the original concept.

vanilla ice cream
for a long time, my texture packs lacked any resemblance to the original textures. Although this may not be a problem if you are in singleplayer, but this deviation created a hassle online. Buildings would often not look as they had intended to; the solution was to just create a bridge between this Utopian, futuristic/cyberpunk pack and the vanilla pack.

I've decided to keep some of the natural textures -- natural.

the ores
GFwvMLOpng
As you can see, the ores and stone blocks now match, and are much more subtle than my previous attempts at ores.
I took inspiration from packs like Ovo's and Summerfields. This will also improve the survival experience, which is still in working progress!

the wood
gUtpHrWpng
completely as you'd expect wood to be, simple panels and not too much flashy stuff.

the quartz set

PMrXcpng
Unlike Aeon :: Legacy, I have decided it's best to stay with the classic white colour of quartz. These blocks would be great for labs, hospitals, utopian complexes, and spaceships!

the glowstone and redstone block
rmxXGaLpng
I'm going to make the glowstone casing match the redstone block, mainly because redstone block should match the redstone lamp, which should match glowstone. But this is the generally the style of Aeon 1.6.2, which has come a long way from Year 3000 (my first pack).

There are many, many more blocks to be showcased, and all will be revealed soon! (Next week maybe)
This is just an update for the people who follow Aeon, and are eager to see an update. I have definitely not given up on this pack!

contact me if you want an early pre release, this is for beta testers and builders!

hello, just wonderng if you're ever going to update this to 1.6.4 or if you already have? :)
i see you have it as "70% done" but it hasn't been updated in 6 months :o

It does work with 1.6.4 as you can see in my video. (if you notice some graphics are different,
I use a modified version of Aeon 1.6.2)

No need to port to 1.6.4, but it will need to be for 1.7x. His pack is just unfinished.

Just try changing around the textures with world edit till you find something you like (I recommend the quartz)

this pack is no way compatible with the old aeon anyway xD

would you consider updating the old lost space pack? i always like its more "beat up" aspects. i could patch it to 1.6 for you and merge some textures from legacy and this current pack if it would help?

You can download MCPatcher. There's a menu "Convert texture pack". First convert from 1.4 to 1.5, then 1.5 to 1.6, then move the converted texture pack to resources folder.

Obviously, it's not a perfect solution, probably you'll notice that some textures are missing.

you see the curvy lines on the floor (metal planks or something like that) and notice how the lines are not straight as you go further.. you have aliasing going on, and i have not figured how to anti-aliasing so we can make professional pictures, i've had someone tell me that my glass was grainy and i have bad aliasing when i go further and notice how my animated matrix block gets funky.

I tried out the new texture. While some elements are amazingly done, others were kind of WTF.

What happened with the paintings? It seems you accidentally saved them as high-compressed JPG with those infamous artifacts. (I'm not mad, just wondering).

The crafting table has some missing parts. Now I use it as my X-ray device. XD ... mind if I give you an idea? I found a TP whose crafting table was animated with LEDs on its top. I could send you the TP to give a look in it.

how about this:

- the paintings looked terrible, so I tried to dither them. Nevermind now, because I will be remaking the whole thing.

- the crafting table is not missing parts, you just clearly do not have proper mcpatcher! Make sure you have all mc patcher components enabled, because I assure the crafting table is actually transparent...

"the paintings looked terrible"...How dare you say such a thing! Those paintings bring life to my sci-fi buildings. You must have lost your mind. I challenge you to a duel sir!

...just kidding...

Interesting those paintings made me jawdrop when I saw them for the first time and gave all the atmosphere I was looking for, with their bright vivid neon colors... For example I would never hang them on a smooth stone wall but on a metallic or glass wall.

I also noticed you are moving toward a rather beige-ish or gray-ish palette with noise and little rust than a clean and vivid color palette (example), I'm not saying this is bad. (note: I haven't tested every block yet... :x )

Well, you're the artist, you have experience. I believe I can trust you :-) ... I don't want to influence your decisions, just wanted to voice my perceptions (and I find a pack that fits in my sci-fi buildings...hehe).

As to MCP: I tried to use MCPatcher. The problem is that it doesn't go along very well with some tech mods I use, for instance Modular PowerSuits.

You should try to get mcp, it really shows aeon in it's true colors. I'm moving towards a much cleaner and well integrated Aeon,
because I feel as though we need a sci fi pack that blends in well with some of the vanilla aspects!

But the paintings are going to go,
in their place will be some minimalistic art.
I'm moving towards a gradual utopian based theme, where there is a more subtle use of colors and textures

FREAK! If the preview is this amazing, imagine the actual content.

I love the ore blocks. I got the idea: natural blocks (stones, soil, ores, logs) would look natural, the building blocks would go hi-tech.

Let's see how the stained clay will turn out. Depending on the result, I would replace the quartz blocks I used in my galacticraft space station with any other block.
