I originally thought, "Why don't texture pack makers create 1024x texture packs?" So I re-sized a current texture pack I use to 16384x16384, and then attempted to launch minecraft. Ran out of memory. Retried with 10gb's allocated, same error, and finally, when I allocated 14gb's of ram, did minecraft launch.

After turning all of the graphic settings down to the lowest setting, I created a new world. Like a slide show (No more than 5FPS) did the game render, however, the realism was amazing. Unfortunately, I could not take any screenshots, otherwise, I would have posted them here.

I want to see a 2976x2976 texture, my friend claimed she made one once. That's better higher res than real life...

It will be a burden to run Minecraft with a 1024x1024 texture pack without atleast 4 GB RAM. So those who have less than that can't use a 1024x1024 texture pack.

How did you get 14GB of RAM ??? I never heard a computer having that much ram to run Minecraft except for server computers.

Custom computer or gaming computer? It's possible. Look at the US government, not to mention the crap they have in japan. 1 small flash drive, smaller than your thumb, holds more storage data tham my entire xbox.

My computer has 16gb's of RAM. You can allocate more to minecraft with a command line.

nasa's computers have a range of 50-100 gbs of ram to a terabyte of ram

the worlds biggest pc in america somewear has 16 petabytes which is the next byte above a terra and they have a few terrabytes of ram the new world record the city in texas cant remember the name oh is making a 110-140 petabyte cant remember wht it is somewear in tht range

super computer with alittle under or over 100 terrabytes worth of ram and almost a thousend processors or somethen

but with that you could go beyond 512 to this guys 1024 to the next 2048-2048 dam dam forget tht even forget 4096 you could probly reach 8129-8129 texture pack on the other pc let alone the new world record one there making it could probly double again and make a 16384-16384 texture pack which is probly higher then movie graphics for all these billion doller blockbusters and shit

but hey if they got tht big of a pc why would they waste there time useing it on a game but it would be cool lol it would be realer then life
