Click to view my own HD texture pack tutorials - I'll show you how I made this pack, block by block!

Welcome, one and all. My name is Mitchell and I am a 15 year-old student who enjoys playing Minecraft. Recently, I have been developing my first HD 128x128 texture pack for the game.

Please note that this is a work in progress; I am interested as to what you think of it, and whether or not I should continue in making it; therefore, all comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

About the Pack

LIFE is a texture pack that improves the game's visuals immensely, boasting lovely high-quality textures in order to make your MineCraft experience as enjoyable as possible. It uses real pictures to make the game look extremely realistic. The pack also benefits from simply stunning water and lava animations, as well as a beautiful interface.

This is the first resolution for the texture pack.

Painted Reality:
Painted Reality is a spin-off from LIFE - it is a 128x128 pack the uses the textures from LIFE but with a new, artistic look. Give it a try!

How to Install

I highly recommend using OptiFine after the 1.5 update to reduce lag.

Click to reveal

You can install my texture pack like all other HD texture packs. If you do not wish to use OptiFine, you can use MCPatcher - here are the steps:

1. Download the texture pack, using the link above.
2. Download the HD patcher for MineCraft at this link: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1496369-151-15-147update-319-mcpatcher-hd-fix-303-245-03/
3. Run the patcher after downloading and press 'patch' (making sure the HD textures and HD font boxes are ticked).
4. Put the texture pack into the 'texture pack' folder, located where all your other Minecraft documents are.
5. Open Minecraft and select it from the 'texture packs' menu.
6. Play!

needs a 1.9 update. Also, pls do some of the textures such as bows, andesite, diorite, and granite, etc
It loses a lot of charm with some of the default 16x16 textures, and I'm not a big fan of the tools/meat

Make this for 1.8/1.9 and finish it.
to be honest this is one of the best texture-packs i have ever use (p.s. its the only one i've used but still) i do have some suggestions tho make the water look real under and the animals too also you should have leaves fall off the trees if that is possible of course also make the trees sway in the wind and water have waves again if that is even possible THX FOR READING!!!!
Hey, thanks for your lovely comment! :) If you're looking to have trees swaying in the wind and other cool features, search for a Minecraft Shader pack! That should do the trick!
I love this pack use it on a daily basis... just can't wait til its 100% done tho. Irritates me sometimes when I come across unfinished blocks.
Awesome!!!!!!!!!! Please make more packs like this!!!
Awesome. Diamond
does this pack come with the shaders included in the pictures??

Good texture pack except for the trapped chest: it's the same as chest!

With this texture pack the trapped chest can trap you with no problem...
Isn't that the same with the default texture pack? They're suppposed to look the same.
There's a subtle difference between the two, Most of the time in other packs is the lock that is a slight;y redder colour, or slightly different shape.
best texturepack ever!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!

Hey Stormcore is this: www.planetminecraft.com/texture_pack/the-life-hd-pack-st0rmc0r3/ a copy of your pack? I couldn't tell :/
Sure is - he's even got my name in the title. Thanks for telling me, I'm going to report it now.
Alright i will too and your welcome! Pretty sure his terraria pack is also stollen but ill need to look into that!
First wanna say best texture pack iv ever used, second i was wondering if your gonna fix the pozdol i think its called, it looks like autumn leaves ont he ground, but it looks like its still on the vanilla block?
Thanks, glad you like the pack. I will be looking to fix the pdozol in the next update.

To be honest, I have no idea. Just whenever I can, really.

I know it's a lot of work to make such an awesome Texturepack and I also know that George R.R. Martin always kills a Stark if gets ask those things, but I really want to know when you'll have 1.7- Textures done.
I spend my whole day hitting the "F5" key.
So may you can tell me when you planed to release your "update".
Hey! I can't really give you a date - I'm quite busy at the moment and I go back to school tomorrow for my final year. The first few weeks will be quite hectic so I doubt I can pump out an update then. Remember, you can use the new resource-pack merging tool to combine what I've done with other packs. Thanks for your question!
Thanks a lot mate! I'm lovin' the enthusiasm there! Have fun! :D
