This is not an "advertisement for a submission" for the simple reason that the submission does not yet exist.
I will delete this blog once I upload the texture pack, if necessary.

The aim of this post is to offer something to the people (few in number but appreciated) who have subscribed to me to keep tabs on the texture pack I am working on as a thank-you for your support. Of course, it would also be nice to get feedback from fresh eyes - hi Mr/Ms. Reader, looking at these words! I would love it if you left a comment with constructive criticism (write it as tactlessness as you'd like, I can handle "this pack sucks" as long as it is followed up with "the water looks weird and the obsidian is too red.")

One more note: I am sorry, but this month I was not able to work very much on the pack due to exams, so little progress was made. However, terrain.png only had a few minor blocks left, and I finished it up a few days ago. And yesterday I put together a little video showing it off! (I say "yesterday" because I left it uploading overnight... Youtube is notoriously slow at uploading videos.)



Rugged terrain; elegant building. "Wet Paint" is a texture pack that attempts to emulate the soft strokes of a paintbrush while capitalizing on the sandbox nature of Minecraft by lending the user a blank canvas of seamlessly tiling blocks that do not interfere with designs, terrain, or building. Every block, from cobblestone to diamond, has been recreated from the ground up, creating a different look and feel for Minecraft. Furthermore, every miscellaneous visual - every particle, every icon, every mob - will be fully retextured to complete the transformation.


Update #1: Pictures!

On the very wise recommendation of TheNewHope, here is a "layout" picture so that you can see the textures more clearly (open the image in a new tab for more detail).

I, being a person who uses darker texture packs, thought I wouldn't like this texture pack. I was wrong. This would be a wonderful edition to any players texture pack folder. I would love to use this on my survivalThis would be great for custom maps too. Do you think, when you're done, you could do textures for some of the major mods (Mo' Creatures, Balkon's WeaponMod, that one fossil mod I don't know the name of etc. etc.)? Just a suggestion for the future, when you're done with all the default textures. You may want to wait until just after the new update to release this, as people will begin looking for texture packs that are up to date and ready for them to use.

I've been taking a break from texturing for a while, so don't worry about this being released before 1.3 ;) Mod textures are definitely something I have in mind, but only if the pack gains enough traction... I don't mind making the texture pack even if two people download it because I myself am using the pack for everyday playing. However, I do not use mods so I would have to see significant interest to undertake a project like Mo' Creatures.
As usual, your support is really appreciated. I almost feel up to start working on some textures again...

I like the pack a lot, well done! One bit of constructive criticism though, I don't really like the repeater texture or the redstone torch. Apart from that, very well done :D

Have a diamond!

Duly noted! I will work on an alternate texture. I thought that the repeater looked a bit cluttered with the oversize torches, but I liked the torches themselves... So I'll give a slimmer alternate for people who do lots of repeater work :P

Hope the finished product pleases you as well!

Nice, though you should showcase the texturepack a bit more detailed in the video

What would you recommend? One of those layouts where they have every block laid out? Or did you have something else in mind? :)

If you look at other texturepack video showcases, they are showing it slower (=Makes it easier to see the different blocks). You used Speedup, which makes it rather difficult to actually see the texture of the blocks. I understand that you wanted to show it all in one video.. +1 for managing to do so, but -1 for doing it too fast!

Though, I'll give you a diamone for the effort you put into the texturepack itself.

Ah - well actually, I used Speedup because my computer was horrendously slow at filming. So, at original speed, the FPS count was so bad that even I, the video creator, wanted to throw something in annoyance when watching the vid. I mention in the video description that I'm trying to work full-time this summer so that I'll be able to afford a better laptop... Subsequent videos will then be "smooth" even at slow speed. I have two interview in the coming weeks for office jobs, so wish me luck...

I think that I will try and improve the texture-seeing difficulty by posting some stills on this blog... I might even do that tonight.

So I apologize for the -1 for the speed, but it was that or seeing horrible jitter. I'm really sorry :(

Oh, ok! Good luck with your interviews! May I ask, what kind of job?

Yeh, more pics = more clicks.

Also, if you need someone to make a video for you, I could do so. 150-300 FPS when recording.
