About This Mod

As it is now, most blocks in Minecraft are generated with the same orientation (they all face the same way). This produces what I call the oquilt effect.o Here is a picture of some grass, which demonstrates this:

[I know these pictures look old and say minecraftversion 0.3, but I wrote this mod for Minecraft Beta 1.7.3, and it is up to date. There are no bugs (at least I don't think there are bugs) :) ]rn

Can you see the quilt-like pattern? If you can't, the image below may help. The following image is the same map as shown above except that the grass blocks are now randomly orientated (randomly rotated)

Random_grass_blocksjpg

Nature isnot a quilto¦ nature is usually more random... In general, I think that randomly oriented (rotated) blocks look better. That's what Natural Textures Mod does.

The following two pictures are similar to those above,except I've replaced the grass texture with a white block with dark corners.The corner block texture isn't pretty, but I use it here only to further exemplify why the quilt phenomenon happens, and how my mod works.

Here is the same map with my Natural Textures Mod:

It's too difficult updating two different posts at the the same time. I'll always be updating the file for download here, so that's fine, but if you want installation instructions, or a more detailed description of the mod, you will have to look at my post on /www.minecraftforum.net

This Mod does require ModLoader, and there are sometimes special instructions depending on whether or not you downloaded a previous version. For example, as I release new versions, certain class files won't be used anymore, so you will have to delete the old classes, or replace them with unmodified Minecraft or ModLoader classses, in order to get the new version of the mod to work. So, I do recommend reading the installation instructions over on the Minecraft forums.

What blocks does this effect? All blocks? If so, that would make cobblestone or wooden plank blocks look stupid.

No, it doesn't change all blocks. Of course you can change how many "angles" block can have; you can use Natural_Textures_Settings.txt...

change the signature link url=... to this page
it just link to the image, not useful.
Sorry about that. I fixed the signature. It now links you to the natural texture topic on the minecraft forums, rather than sending you to the address of the picture used for the signature. Thanks for letting me know it was broken.
