    Little Improvements: Variated is a resource pack, which is entirely vanilla and does not require Optifine.
    It is designed not to make textures look different from vanilla, but instead to randomise some textures so as avoid nasty grid patterns in ores, sand etc. and just make things less uniform all the time and add variation. See screenshots for examples!
    You can also get outlined ores in the pack, if you want. Read the spoiler about that below.

    hello
    i think ive found an issue with this
    i have both the variated ore textures and emissive ores addons from the little improvements site


    the diamond ore doesnt look custom in-game, and the glow effect looks moved up by one pixel in a weird way


    the coal ore also has the same issue, but only when held in hand
    it might be happening with more ores as well but i cant tell which textures are custom and which vanilla (rip)
    (screenshot here)
    (also i dont have any other texture packs enabled)

    Same here, https://www.planetminecraft.com/texture-pack/downshift used your pack here and claims they got explicit permission by all creators. Just informing you in case you didn't.

    I did in fact give permission for this pack, but not the better beacon sides that you also commented on. Looks like the pack's been removed anyway now. Thanks for letting me know anyway :)

    I love this idea, however variated entities aren't possible without OptiFine. I intend to keep this pack mainly vanilla, but if I ever make an OptiFine extension, I'll be sure to remember your idea :D

    Is it just me, or are some of the stone textures missing? Some stone blocks (roughly 1 in 16) have the black and pink missing texture.

    Oh and speaking of gilded blackstone.. I found a texture pack called "alternate gilded blackstone" by BrotherEarth967 -VE, I believe you know him actually lol, well I was wondering whether you would be planning to incorporate some of their textures into this pack with their permission of course? Maybe only the less jarring ones? perhaps as a separate download link? idk just an idea ^^'

    I love that pack and think they're some really nice textures, however I dont think it's quite right for variated, because variated is really close to the vanilla textures, as opposed to variation in alternate gilded blackstone's sense. I might include a link to it in the description though..

    Yeah I get it dw

    I'm hesitant to use these gilded or those ones.. I think two of them are kinda obnoxious is the pb and I can't code for sh*t so I can't just remove them.. I guess I'll see when these textures are fixed..

    Hey, thanks for the feedback (again)! :)
    Dirt, sand and red sand are already variated (they're rotated so you won't see a grid pattern)
    Nether and warped wart blocks are also already variated. xD

    Actually:

      Vanilla:

        -Dirt, Sand and Red Sand rotated on top but not sides

        -Wart blocks not rotated AT ALL
      Pack:
        -Dirt, Sand and Red Sand rotated on top AND on the sides


        -Wart blocks rotated on all sides

    Double checked in-game and in the files, trust me

    Hey sorry to bother you again but is it possible to variate the textures for slabs/stairs/fences/walls?



    I only noticed with the bricks (most noticeable) but there may be others


    Thanks for your time and this amazing pack

    P.S. What exactly is supposed to change with the concrete powder? I didn't see a difference apart from the rotation which is vanilla

    Yeah, the only thing for concrete powder is the rotation; I didn't know it was in vanilla - thanks for letting me know. That will be removed in the next update.

    Marvolo__Riddle Update: I just remembered that in vanilla, concrete powder is only rotated on the y axis, while this pack rotates it along all axis so it doesn't have a grid pattern when on a vertical wall as well.

    Glass panes might come in the future, yes. Stained glass I will probably not do because I would have to do all the CTM textures for each colour which would take forever. :/

    Nice, I was looking for a pack with ore variation, but wasn't too wildly different from vanilla! Diamond for you!

    (Btw, if you do variated book shelves, I just wanted to add my 2 cents and say I'd personally prefer something more vanilla looking than the ones from Vanilla Tweeks. Not that they're a bad set a texture by any means. They just have more color variation than the vanilla ones do.)

    Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, I agree about the pink bookshelves. If and when I do add them, I'll probably exclude the ones with pink and orange to make it more consistent with vanilla.
