I need the default minecraft texture pack with everything (mobs, items, terrain, all the graphics, even the grass colour thingie) so I can edit it. I plan to turn it into a texture pack that makes the world of Minecraft seem like an alien planet similiar to Mars in the past or in the future.
Whenever I extract the files myself, it won't work. The texture pack will not show up in the texture pack choice selection. Either that or the texture pack preview picture is black and white and it doesn't work. And yes, I deleted all of the non-graphic files like how people do with other texture packs. So can someone please help?
This may seem like a silly problem to you that I should be able to solve, but I can't and I need the default texture pack. I've been searching for about a week, so please provide a direct link to the .jar file.
