    Oh shoot, I was on minecraftsix? Crazy, thanks for letting me know. And yeh, I'd be up for a gander at your texture pack. How done is it? Also, rode your coaster. You weren't kidding about the lag. My poor machine can't handle the juice. Had to turn off all my other programs, and give minecraft 14 gigs of RAM. Golly.

    The some parts are a slow, but things get more fun when I couldn't see what was around the next corner. The cobweb line was a 2001 space odyssey trip. Gave me time to sit and wonder, is there a block in existance he hasn't used? Oh and then the flashing glowstone eyeball, that was great! Oh I spoke too soon bout the space odyssey, the beacon tunnel was that part. Really just, the whole thing uses tons of ideas. I'm not a coaster connoisseur, so it all feels new to me. Like the floating tracks. The amount of time put into shows with it's length and volume of stuff. Extensive.

    Oh and, that's my one and only resource pack.

    I know some people file host on Deviant Art. But generally, there are plenty of small places, forums and such else to go, however the more popular websites are a curated service by the owners and admins. So like say me, if I was interested in showing myself elsewhere, I could write theses guys http://resourcepack.net/contact-us/ and ask if they'd like to host my pack. Other than that, you can join facebook groups, deviant art groups, and be social there.

    Credit Avery? Hahahah, yeh. I figured someone might ask me about that. But all it is, is that I made this pack as a gift for her years ago, and the "Avery.zip" file just kept the same name over time as the minecraft versions ticked ever upward. When I went public with it, I never considered coming up with a new title for it because, in my eyes it will always be hers. She's my muse, so having her name in the title I think gives her credit for being my inspiration.

    //if this looks out of date, go check planetminecraft//

    Every stone unturned. Blocks, Items, Mobs, Armors, Models, Blockstates, Language, Audio. Wait? No audio? We removed the audio because of copyright reasons? Okay. everything else though...
    This resource pack is trapped in "95% done" limbo hell. Which means FUTURE STONES UNTURNED.
    I've been working on this since alpha and well... I guess it's time to go public here for the 1.11 update. 5 years in development?... Time well spent.
    So what exactly does this pack do? Glad you asked! I spent hours typing this up just for you.

    posted a message on Can I change blockstates vanilla facing ?

    Don't take it from me too seriously. I'm no pro. But I am up early this morning, so if you aren't keen on waiting for Alvoria to see this here thread and set you straight, I'll spill what I know.

    I don't think what you want to pull off is possible. Think like, see... If a block doesn't already come with the functionality to face a direction, you probably can't force it to with resource packs alone. Take for instance, there was this one time I wanted to play with the way snow would land on grass and change it's side texture, well I thought it would be neat if other things like dirt or gravel had this feature. But that's the key to it, you're adding a feature. So even though I gave gravel the same the blockstate code grass had, nothing would show up properly in game. This is because gravel doesn't ever ask the game if there's a snow layer above it. So even though I supplied the information for as to what to do when there's snow up there, the game doesn't really ever ask that question. See what I'm saying? SO, it's with this knowledge, I would bet to you, the block you are trying to give orientation to won't work out. The specific block you textured into a printer probably never even asks the game what direction it should face. Like it probably doesn't ask the game if there's snow above it.

    As stated above, I've never personally attempted what you are after, nor researched the subject of orienting blocks. So don't give up on your dream just yet. But YO YEAH. Suns setting bro.

    posted a message on Y'all remember that witherarmor.png from 2013 snapshot?

    *The sound of padded feet running through a hallway can be heard stomping over head. But, it's followed by a what can only be described as a surgical table being thrown down a staircase with all it's tools and gizmos flying all over the place in a deadly symphony. It has it's charm, and musical merit, yes, but the misplaced squeak of a rubber chicken ruins the composition, as well as the image in your head. None the less, the victim of this misfortune is undaunted as they seem to have slammed, face first, into your closed door. You continue to listen, as you are now firmly distracted from your previous task, and you hear the sound of someone who hasn't trimmed they're nails in a couple weeks desperately claw at your door. Finally hitting their mark in the quest to grab the handle, the nob turns and a strange boy in a dinosaur costume bursts into your environment. The abomination tries to speak through heaving lungs. The lad's only maybe 3 feet tall and he's too exhausted and breathy to talk clearly, but your can see he's gesturing with a pointed finger up at the "Thread's Title". This continues for a good 78 seconds before his harsh gasping for air starts to become language.*

    "Aye Fellas. Ayo! Fellas. I got a story, like a stupid story to tell ya's."

    So I imagine the lot of you are here because you're like me, and you like to blow some time making texture packs. But sometimes you can't do things like you want to because, it's hard coded or impossible, and you just have to suck it up. Let Mojang daddy tell you how to live your life. But not today friends. Today I feel like I grabbed Microsoft's car keys and ran away with them before the windows 10 law enforcement agency caught up to me. My shame was great, but those brief moments while on the run, were joy.

    Now I'm totally cool to admit, that yes. This knowledge I'm about to share might just be common, and that this independent discovery is one that's already been made before. That my Google search skills aren't up to snuff. And to be plain, it isn't even much of an achievement. But if you've read this far, we've already agreed to waste a fair bit of time together. So! let's get onto the meat...

    There are a couple threads you can find around here and other places, referencing a "witherarmor.png" found within the minecraft/textures/models/armor folder from yesteryears. As we know, this texture is the shield the Wither uses when he becomes invulnerable to projectiles. But if you go searching for it in versions/XXX/XXX.jar you won't find it in the armor folder, nor any folder for that matter. It seems to not exist. It's probably just something they patched out as the development came closer to it's public release.

    At this point in the game, I assumed then, that maybe the boys over at the minecraft coding factory just forgot about this file's visibility publicly. And that if I put an image file by the same name in the same location that it appeared in that one particular snapshot (sometime around the Christmas chests release) that I might get lucky and be able to alter the texture in my resource pack. But, if you try to modify this texture at the time of this posting you'll have no effect in game. The Wither maintains his yellow-banded-head-shield weirdness regardless.

    For some reason, I decided not to give up at that failed experiment and thought... Well, maybe they just moved it. Now my odds weren't good 'cause, honestly the only consistency they seem to keep in their naming conventions and folder organization is that everything is lowercase. But AYE, stick the .png into the wither folder under minecraft/textures/entity/wither and see what happens. Cant hurt, right? So I ran the game again and the wither was still unaffected. But I had one more idea I thought I'd try before giving up on this gamble. Why not rename the file to "wither_armor.png". Makes sense to me, "wither_invulnerable.png" follows this format. And so does the charged creeper shield.

    Pop it in and BOOM. It worked. (reference images bellow... he's blue now cause testing... Yeah, you get the idea, here.)

    Now as I stated in the "humble paragraph". This isn't some huge triumph. But I got a thrill out of it. I put it all into a resource pack, with the vanilla texture ::HERE:: so other people can play with the wither's armor texture easily.

    But yo yeah. Thanks for the read, fam. I'll let you get back to it.

    *The little dinosaur boy still seems to have trouble reaching for the door handle as he leaves you be. Tsk. Must be clumsy.*

    Is nobody here taking the end of the world seriously? You fools. There's no preventing the impartial march of time. All things must come to an end! The Judgment day is coming. Our civilized "forum society" is a puffed up bubble waiting to burst. We need to be prepared.... Doomsday Prepped... The answer to all our fears, is to start "minecraft prepping" you guys. Holy bacon sauce batman. We need to start collecting adventure map files and mods to make life more comfortable in a post mojang apocalypse! Where cane I buy a "fallout shelter server" for me and my family to play together in? Do we even have those? I'm not going down with this ship, you hear me!!! I'm gonna live!!! I'll be king of the minecraft community capital wasteland of 2020!!!

    In all seriousness. I'm going to pretend I've given everyone here their fill of fear mongering posts for a couple days at least. Let's go back to being normal. Hey,wouldn't it be cool if minecraft added guns? right guys? guns are cool right?

    First, you are going to want to open up the vanilla .jsons. Navigate to like... C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\versions\1.11

    and open "1.11.jar"

    Then inside that, go to.... assets\minecraft\models\item

    At this point. You'll learn the way I learned. Study what Mojang did. Open up the like, "wooden_sword.json". Try to get used to seeing it. Try and figure out what all the parts do. A big tip, I can tell you right now, is see where it says...

    // "parent": "item/handheld",//

    Go find handheld.json and open that up too. Follow the monkey trail.

    So anyway. If you have trouble working and experimenting on your own...

    Then read the first paragraph of this:: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Model ::

    Then you can skip down to this:: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Model#Item_models ::

    Now once you get an idea of what's happening here, this next statement will make sense to you...

    You're gonna want to create a new "handheld.json". Do not overwrite the vanilla "handheld.json". Call the new one like "handheld_sword.json" or something. You see how in vanilla the fishing rod (Open up "fishing_rod.json") is parented to it's very own "handheld_rod.json"? This demonstrates, that any item, can be "parented" to it's own third person model. So inside "wood_sword.json" You can parent it to your own custom "handheld_sword.json". It's magic really.

    posted a message on OPINIONS WANTED!

    The problem with a lot of high res work is how these will look in third person. If you go and check right now, witness how your player's hand is being mangled by the hilt. You are going to want to increase the size of the game's model to fix this issue, as increasing the texture's dimensions doesn't effect it's actual size. It's an easy thing to forget.

    Just to save you some trouble. Not everyone knows how to edit the third person model to fit their textures. SO!!! For a 128x128 you are going to want to leave a 40x40 area in the bottom-left(south-west) corner for the players hand to occupy.

    The Maya/Aztec/Incan sword you've got there does this well enough already. But the Iron and Diamond could use some love.

    posted a message on Statistics GUI element missing???

    So I'm humming over my mess, and I notice a part of the UI looking out-a place in comparison to the freak organization method I had established for myself. I did a google, and a forum search here and came up empty handed. Somebody out there.... Where the heck is this "slider.png"?

    As you can see from my photoshop skills. The typical slider you see in minecraft, I got covered. Huh! But but, the slider you see when thumbing over that statistics menu, is beyond my reach. What gives?

    PS. I've already accepted my fate that Mojang has simply overlooked this element of resource packs

    posted a message on Please, make a good use of the term "Americans" or use a better description


    It depends on where you live. Calling the entirety of the continent "America" is correct based on your language and location. However, in other areas, the continent. America isn't considered one continent, it's two. North America/South America, together known as "The Americas". the USA in particular is one of those areas, and denizens of the entire continent are never referred to as such, but instead as either, North Americans, South Americans, or even Central Americans.

    It's fair to use the common terminology of the people the box is being sold to. While this may be confusing to some people outside of that area, that is simple unfortunate casualty of language.

    If you think this is bad, wait till we colonize Jupiter's moon Europa. And they are only selling boxed copies of minecraft 3.0 to Europeans.
