Please visit the official Sensei & Son HD128 Minecraft Texture Pack web page for more information about the texture pack, lots more samples at high resolution including many in-game screenshots, videos and DOWNLOAD LINKS for the new 1.8+ version as well as for the original 1.7.10 version. Please use this forum for comments and discussion. Let me know what you think. Thank you and enjoy!
This new Sensei & Son HD 128 1.8 version 2 of the texture pack is optimized for Minecraft 1.8+. It includes textures for all the blocks and items for Minecraft 1.8.9 as well as all the new banners. It works in later versions of Minecraft as well but will lack textures for blocks and items introduced after Minecraft 1.8. If there is enough interest in the texture pack we'll extend it to cover newer versions of Minecraft as well as other areas of the game that are modifiable in Minecraft Resource Packs such as texturing the mobs, creating new custom models, redesigning the graphical user interface (GUI), customizing sounds, etc.
Here's an awesome and humorous independent showcase/review of our Sensei & Son HD128 Texture Pack!
Here’s a short walk-through / fly-by video that my son MJ (Minecraft avatar guigee) put together showing the Sensei and Son HD128 Minecraft Texture Pack being used with Optifine and a GLSL shader mod, Sildur’s shader pack. He walks-through and flies-by some of the areas we’ve developed on our online Minecraft server during the process of creating and testing all the various textures. My Minecraft avatar SenseiMS even makes a cameo appearance in the video.

While plain vanilla Minecraft or Optifine and any GLSL shaders may be used, the Sensei and Son HD128 Minecraft Texture Pack is optimized for use with MCPatcher which provides additional functionality. Plain vanilla Minecraft and Optifine don’t have support for multiple render-passes which are available with MCPatcher’s Better Glass mod or full CTM connected texture mod support. If using Optifine, glass blocks will appear opaque and won’t connect into seamless panes. Pane glass will connect seamlessly but will appear totally transparent other than the frame. With MCPatcher glass blocks will seamlessly connect, they will be semi-translucent and pane glass will also appear semi-transparent between the seamless frames as well as in the wooden and iron doors. Fire, smoke and water will also appear translucent while fully animated. While GLSL shaders are most often used with Optifine, they may also be used with MCPatcher instead. In that case all the features of the Sensei and Son HD128 Minecraft Texture Pack will be available even when using optional GLSL shader packs.
We've updated all the screengrabs with GLSL Shaders installed. Makes a huge difference in the level of realism in the rendering of all the textures. Check em out!
Looks nice, clean and detailed. Love it. Would be neat to Update to MC 1.8.8. Hope we can see Support for Mods in the Future.
PS: Download done....
If there's enough interest in it (based on official downloads and/or donations) we'd love to add new textures for mobs and MC 1.8.8 and beyond. We started when Mincraft was at 1.4 and each new version kept adding more and more textures for us to complete to get a full set. It's a lot of work to do it right. We finally got all the blocks and items done for 1.7.10 for a release. Our goal was to release it for blocks/items by the end of the year. So if you like it, and would like to see it expanded/upgraded, please spread the word with a link to the web page. DreamLight.com/minecraft
In the mean time you can stack it on top of another pack that handles mobs and the new blocks/items for 1.8 in Minecraft's selected resource pack stack list. That way it won't be quite so jarring when you come across any new blocks/items or mobs.
Anyone who wishes to help support the texture pack feel free to post the following banner with a link to our page: DreamLight.com/minecraft
Looks very nice! I really like the cobblestone and wood textures, they looks great! Keep up the good work
I've added a short walk-through / fly-by video showing the Sensei and Son HD128 Minecraft Texture Pack being used with Optifine and a GLSL shader mod, Sildur’s shader pack, to the original post. That uses Optifine and shows a few glitches, like opaque torch smoke and water. The texture pack is optimized for MCPatcher so I've also added a link to step-by-step instructions on how to install GLSL Shader Mod and Shader Packs with MCPatcher using Minecraft Forge to get the full benefit of all the advanced features using MCPatcher with the optional GLSL Shader Mod and GLSL Shader Packs.
I found that one of the items was failing to load. The apple was failing to load (easily seen when opening the inventory in creative mode which has an apple in the lower left corner). The filename started with an uppercase 'A' which caused it to fail to load. I've renamed the file to all lowercase, repacked the zip and uploaded it as version 1.7.10_1. So if you've already downloaded the texture pack you can either download it again to get the updated version with the correct filename or simply edit the name of "assets/minecraft/textures/items/Apple.png" to "assets/minecraft/textures/items/apple.png" with all lowercase. Then it should load correctly.
Screens look cool, really nice design, but I'm getting blank pages on all of your links : (
Other download link, please!
That's strange. The pages load here, where are you located? They may be blocked in Russia/China due to all the spam we were getting. Here's a direct download link that should work though. I added it to the OP as well. Thanks for pointing it out.
SenseiMS, thanx for direct download link, that worked for me!
I'm located in Russia and dreamlight.com is unavailable for me (checked on different computers with different internet providers).
Now the texture pack is working great! ^^
I'm glad you were able to download it from the direct link and that you like the texture pack! -Enjoy!
(There is a security package running on our main site that has blocks to a few global locations where most of the spam was coming from. Sorry about that.)
This is a block update. It adds textures for all the new blocks up to Minecraft 1.8.9 such as prismarine, sea lantern, new doors, new stones, etc. and a few of the new items such as matching doors. It also adjusts some of the glass and a few other blocks to work better with 1.8+. We'll post a subsequent 1.8v2 item update when we finish the rest of the items.
Download it and give it a spin. Let us know what you think. Enjoy!
