Custom texture packs

This is a totally pink texture:

Even though the texture is all pink, trees, grass and water have different hues. This comes from temperature/humidity calculations and is not affected by texture pack.

This is standard texture enlarged 4x with some cheap bumpmap effect applied:

And this is…?

Yeah, guessed correctly! A Minecraft texture pack.

During early days of Survivalcraft I used the same locations on the texture as Minecraft does, so early blocks like dirt, sand, wood etc. show correctly. Unfortunately most later blocks are different, so you cannot re-use Minecraft texture packs as-is.

And no, TNT is not in Survivalcraft yet :-) This is just a clay block that happens to use the same slot as TNT in Minecraft. But explosives may be next on my radar after Dropbox is finished.

    Is there any loss of performances using such a texture pack with SC? And then, can we have better performances importing an optimized texture pack?

    • Posted March 24, 2012 at 14:48 | Permalink | Reply

      Sadly not. Using larger texture packs may make it slower but I doubt that using smaller will make it any faster. The default one is 256×256 which is hardly taxing on any hardware.

      It is. But it’s not the priority thing now. In creative you can build your own trees “the hard way”.

    Kaalus, I was wondering whether it could be possible Or not to get more informations about the way you realize your blocky design? I mean that with textures packs, I’d like to be able to modify some of the blocks your have created without attack the whole blocks homogeneity. Thus maybe you could let use access to some raw .psd files or I don’t know which format you use to have a look on your layers construction, used techniques, color palette etc. you are using for textures realization. Just modifying a .png won’t render the better result I think, am I wrong? Thanks!

      I am not using anything fancy. This is just 16×16 texture and I mostly draw everything by hand, pixel by pixel.

      I’ve got your email, no worries. Big thanks, it actually let me figure out what’s the problem behind these 404 errors. It turns out that Dropbox adds parameters to its callback URL, and this causes it to freak out once it tries to open the callback page.

      I will be fixing that soon by not using oauth callbacks.

      Again, thanks!

    Defining a particular region for the food choices of these types is not at all possible.
    Take the low-carb tortilla or wrap and put about a tablespoon or two of cream on it.
