I think you should do industrialcraft/buildcraft later as they have a hell of a lot of textures to do. And they have a **** tonne of addons. I suggest you do the mods that are easier to do for example mo' creatures, extra biomes and the bunyan addon on (extra biomes has only about 10 new textures, the others are rotations/recolours and the addon is only 1 texture. The aether doesn't have too much textures but has a few GUI's and a lot of mob textures. Redpower is quite a big mod with textures i think. Better than wolves has no addons but quite a few textures. Tropicraft doesn't have too much blocks and items. But has a few mobs. Clay soldiers shouldn't be too hard. Not sure about the furniture mod or thaumcraft. And for connected textures, it would be amazing if you could do randomized textures/extended connected textures. But that involves a bit of coding to figure out which block goes where and whatnot in properties files, you can look at misas realistic/dokucraft for examples as they both have a lot random textures and extended connected textures. Or maybe you could try some basic animations on gold/diamond/diamond tools/iron and gold ingot/diamond and emerald gem items and their blocks. Maybe some blinking animations for the mobs, it looks really good ingame.
Also to do with vanilla textures, could you do the flowers before the next update? when making a home in a plains biome it looks absolutely gorgeous but the crappy default flowers wreck it xD
Uh, I don't know if you've seen the BuildCraft .png files , but there isn't that much. It's pipes & a few machines. That's really simple to customize to this Texture Pack.
can't wait for 100% finish. I downloaded 64x version and started inspecting blocks in my world like i never did Stone slab could have a pixel wide shades or shadows though, maybe even wood too inside those dark gaps of planks.
Try 512x! I use 256x and spend half of my time inspecting the detail of blocks xD
i have to say this is bar none my fav default texture period, as an artist i love the amout of detail in this, heck i'm amazed at the bow alone, it has wood grain, i swear this is the only texture pack i use that has wood grain in the bow.
i have 128, that is the limit for hd textures on my pc any bigger and it lags like nothing else. yet it runs fallout 3 on high settings, *shrugs* i love how you perserved the old textures, which at times i start to miss the old look, but after using so many of these high def packs the default is hard on the eyes, at least for me. the lack of texture makes it to bright. i know it is due to the 16x16 limit, but after i took a med called abilify i find bright colors and certain contrasts just painful for me. so i can't use the default much, so thanks for making this the added texture basicly removes the painful brighness and contrasts that are painful to my eyes. now i can use default without the stinging eye pain.
