When 13w02a came out with the new texture pack system I was so excited. I could finally make minecraft look how I wanted it to. The goal of this pack is to animate everything within reason (over 100 animations so far!), and add detail where the defaults didn't have enough pixels like the tools on the crafting bench and lines in glass (the textures with added detail are 32x). I know some other packs call themselves "hybrids" but I haven't seen this concept of mixing and matching resolutions done before (now there are a few though). By changing the resolutions on accordance with the need of the animation, I was able to make the animations smoother while keeping the overall size of the pack down. This has been in the works for over three months now. Here is a complete change log.

Please note I gif-ified only some of the textures because they are a pain to make. This isn't nearly all of them. Also they will look much better in game because the timings are hard to get right on a gif.

1. After you download it, put the zip file into your texture packs folder. If you don't know where that is google it and you will be swamped in tutorials. Also make sure you are running 1.5 or later or it won't work.
2. (Highly recomended) Install Optifine or (not both) MCPatcher and follow the installation instructions on one of those threads. This will enable connected textures (CTM), random mobs, and extra animations like blinking mobs and the enderchest.

Thanks for reading this and hopefully trying it out! Enjoy.

Whoa! This pack is pretty cool! With all the animated textures and everything.. This is great for Minecraft Machinimas! Speaking of Minecraft Machinimas, this texture pack has been used by Minecraft YouTubers! So cool and unique, I wish to create packs someday, but I just suck at it, and it'll take a lot of work to do! Your hardwork, is been given a diamond!

I have Optifine for 1.7.10 and using your 16c download, which has a few chicken skins in it.  But, throwing a chicken egg, I'm unable to get anything other than the white chicken.  Is there something I'm missing?

High-res effects on 16x16 textures.  Genius.
