Hey folks! I love using my http://www.mcpatcherhd.com/vanilla-hd-texture-pack/ texture pack, but I absolutely hate the water and lava in it. Also the fire. Holy crap the fire is bad. Anyway, I was wondering the easiest way to replace the HD textures for water/lava/fire with the regular ones. I saw MCpatcher has a default liquids, but nothing worked.
Open the .zip file that you've downloaded, make sure Minecraft is closed, and look for either a 'anim' folder, or a bunch of pngs (They would be called things like custom_water_still.png and custom_water_flowing.png, you can figure out the rest.) and delete those. Start Minecraft back up, and enjoy!
Well, I did some research and, with Steelfeathers thread I've got it down to what I need to do. Basically, I'll be creating proportionally "flowing" water to lava and simply enlarge the original fire. Once, I've finished, I'll post it in a fresh thread and link from here.
