Thanl you, The_Architect2!
Now i'm back to work, looking for more feedbacks!
Thank you for your votes and PMs!
We have created alot of textures from scratch, alot of pictures are taken by our own camera, as for other textures, we purchased them (as raw material) from web stores. Few are from free sources, sorry, but I don't know any special web site.
I searched for this, but there is lack of information.
Is there any way to make texture semi-transparent, like ice or stained glass? Whithout mods.
Can I do this with mcmeta files?
Im stuck with the grass, please help me decide which one is better. New poll is added to this thread. Please vote, and if you can - post your comment!

Hello guys! It's funny, but only few days ago I discovered that vanilla minecraft 1.8+ has terrible render quality, resulting awful game graphics, espesially when using higher resolution resource packs! (x256+) It's just not playable.
they removed antialiasing option from 1.8+ AND decreased render quality. Actually I'm very Surprised WHY
This is almost same as using 0.5000 RenderResMul in Shaders Mod
ALOT more noise, I see nothing but blinking pixels when I'm looking at the grass that is 10+ blocks away, same with gravel, etc.
Compare quality: http://imageshack.com/a/img910/8054/qEQAks.jpg
1.7.10 way better than 1.8+
I found 2 ways to fix this with mods:
1. To use OptiFine and tweak Video Settings
Antialiasing, Anisotropicfiltering will do the work.
2. To use Shaders Mod (without shaders enabled)
Just setting RenderResMul to 2.0000 will fix the problem... (with none shader packs selected)
But I was unable to find a way to improve Vanilla (without any mods) minecraft 1.8 results
The point is big majority of players are newbies, they will never use any mods. They can barely download and use resource pack, that's all.
I've created video guides on OptiFine and Shaders Mod, but people just don't want to bother about this. They using Vanilla minecraft 1.8+
And what they first impression of my x512 S&K Photo Realism pack?
Yes, they think "that is a bad grass". They don't even know about OptiFine. Some will read my guieds and will use my recommendations, yes, but majority will not.
I know guys, some of you are real professionals, please give me some advise, may be there is a solution?
-Is there any way to change minecraft rendering quality with texture pack?
-Is there any way to improve Vanilla minecraft 1.8+ graphics?
-what else should I do or try?
Thank you Alot!
I have 2 PCs, same problem appeared today on both.
It's started suddenly. I just lunched the game. And I saw this:
- Alot more noise, even on default 16x16 settings (like playing without mipmapping, but this is something else, never seen that beforem, especially how far mountains looks)
- Wave-like texture moving (you can clearly see ripple on textures when moving around / and after you stopped there is a "wave" that continue moving on the texture, this is very strange, you can see that on my video)
I'm creating great x512 texture pack, and it's actually not playable with this problems.
Please help me understand it. I think this is something global.
It can only be avoided by using OptiFine with very hight Anisotropic Filtering (16) and Antialiasing (16).
I tried everything: reinstall minecraft, update graphics drivers, update java, tried diffirent Option combinations.
The key point is that 10 hours ago all was just fine, no heavy noise, no ripple stuff.
Here is Video with graphical problems (Watch HD fullscreen only):
While I'm okay with the multicolored-ness of the gravel, it still looks... off. Something about the lighting on it, it just looks like a photograph pasted onto a cube. It just sticks out among the other textures and doesn't really fit with them. I can't really place why.
I will echo what Poly_G said about the dirt. The stone looks like it's pretty good, but the dirt is definitely lacking in detail compared to everything else.
Overall, very nice work! It's good to see some well done photorealism for a change.
That beeing said, your pack is quite harmonic indeed. It does look like there is a certain style included, which, again, is more than a lot of other realistic packs offer.
Two things though:
1. Post some pictures without the use of shaders. As tempting as it is, try to avoid using them for showing of your textures. It can lead to false impressions.
2. A generic problem with realistic, image-based resource packs is the lack of structure/features in your textures. Look at the dirt, for example. Sure, it has a texture, but it's a very fine grain, almost like a noise filter. If you are standing a few steps away from a dirt block itself, it almost looks like a single shade of brown. Same goes for the stone.
I'm also not a big fan of that multi-colored gravel, but that's just my opinion. I love the quality of your vegetation textures though.
I'm here to present you a new HD x512/x256 High-Quality Resource pack: S&K Photo Realism Updated to v0.4.2 (19.02.16)
I'm creating this pack with my girlfriend, we are working very hard to bring you best game experience! S&K is the first l
etters of our names and nicknames, that’s why we called it S&K Photo Realism.
We following these principles: * HD * Quality * Realistic * Harmony
As I said, I'm working with my girlfriend, so yeah, the pack has already almost all flowers updated Currently it has almost all basic textures.
Some textures are taken by our own camera, some are drawn from zero, some purchased and some from free stores. The point is we are using (and will use) only best textures for this pack.
Screenshots made with Shaders ON, without shaders there is no shadow and water is using regular texture. We are currently working on our own water texture, this is not simple task to create awesome water!
This texture pack is created by SavageStyle and Kabaluna. (contact us: [email protected])
