    posted a message on - [16x] [1.5.2 SOON!] ◄Fiftyninecraft► - Simply Complex - Customizable! -

    As of me making this edit to the thread, I have the pack roughly 50% done with updating to 1.5.X standards. Upon releasing the update I'll be offering a Simple Pack, premade with my choices in textures, ready to be put in the texturepack folder and used, and offering a Complex Pack, containing all of the textures I've made to be drag'n'dropped through your favorite file browser to create a customized, awesome experience!
    Coming soon, textures and support for 1.5.2! I'll be soon working on plenty of new textures to bring full, customizable support to the Minecraft 1.5.2 update!


    Hello fellow minecrafters. Today I present you with my texture pack, Fiftyninecraft. Now that I'm in 3.0, there's an awesome customizer available, thanks to Bramamine and Kaiassc, doing a great job with the website minecraftcustomizer.net! Thanks for making a great site and making my hopes and dreams of a customizer for my pack possible!

    If you download it, please leave a comment! I want to know what I could change to make it better, and what you think of it. Thanks!


    I've also put the pack up on planetminecraft.com. I figured why not? You can check it out here!

    If you really enjoy my pack and would like to inspire me to work even harder on it, you can now give me a donation via Paypal! I'd really appreciate it.

    Whatever block you suggest, I'll make. I love being able to please the community and create some really cool stuff. So... suggest away!

    Screenshots: [Somewhat outdated]

    First of all, here is my Terrain.png file. This is all of my hard work, and months of updates and love for all of you, all put on a 256x256 canvas. To make it, I used the program Paint.net. I really recommend it. It's a wonderful tool for graphics, and I've used it for about four years or something now. And it's capable of some really cool stuff. (Currently shows 2.9)

    And while I'm showing you images from the zip folder:

    Oh, and at request of a poster, here's the kz.png (paintings).

    Hope you like how it looks! Here are some pictures of it in action:

    I've finally updated the screenshots! The screenshots show mainly 2.8.

    posted a message on [16x][1.5.2+] Fiftyninecraft - Simply Complex - 600+ Textures!



    Hello fellow Minecrafters, and welcome to the new Fiftyninecraft thread! I had originally started the pack back in April 2011, and the old thread can still be found here. This texture pack has been the result of over two years of hard work, and I hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoy working on it!

    More coming soon!

    Fiftyninecraft is available in two different formats. Simple, and Complex!

    Simple is the pack premade with my favorite textures, zipped up and ready to be put in your texture pack folder and used.

    Simple (Adfly)

    Simple (Direct)

    Complex contains all of the over 600 block textures I've made for Fiftyninecraft, organized in to separate folders to be drag'n'dropped in to a working texture pack! Basically a compilation of all of my alternate textures.

    Complex (Adfly)

    Complex (Direct)

    If you download it, please leave a comment! I want to know what I could change to make it better, and what you think of it. Thanks!

    Here I'll be keeping track of all of the new textures I make and the total texture count of the pack!

    1.0: (6/4/2013)
    673 Total Textures
    641 Block Textures
    26 Items Textures
    6 Misc. Textures

    New Textures:

    Hey guys, Fiftyniner here, member from way back when TAU started, glad to see that after all this time things seem to be going good.

    I've been working on a HUUUUGE update on Fiftyninecraft as of late, with big plans for a big re-release. Here are some of the art assets for the OP I've made so far:

    posted a message on [64x] [1.5.2] Hand drawn texture pack
    Definite potential, really like where it's heading though pay attention to some details, little things like the fill popping out of the crafting GUI (http://i.imgur.com/atwo3iT.png) and some jagged-looking edges. Also pay some mind to the colors, for example the background behind the player in the crafting GUI looks somewhat tacky with how neon-bright it looks.

    Other than that, keep it up, you can do nothing but improve. ^_^

    posted a message on No-lag packs, a small study.
    No Lag and Simple Packs: An Experiment
    So many people think that just because a texture is the same color, it'll make you get more FPS. This thread shows how that's nowhere close to true.

    The Packs
    For this experiment, I'll be using 6 different packs:
    1x literal, a terrain.png on a 16x canvas, effectively making each texture 1 pixel.
    1x on 16x canvas, a pack where each texture is one solid color, on a default 256x terrain.png.
    16x normal, the default textures.
    16x simplified, the default textures reduced to a few colors per texture.
    64x normal, the default textures on a larger Terrain.png, making each pixel 4x the size.
    64x simplified, the simplified 16x on a larger terrain.png.

    The Experiment
    Many simple packs claim that the lack of detail will increase FPS. There are also multiple packs that say they're 1x and that your FPS will be better because of it. I'll be showing how the claims are wrong and you'll get the same FPS no matter how much or little detail is added.

    To do that, I'll be loading a pre-made area, using normal render distance, fast graphics, and standing in the same spot for about 1 minute, and screenshoting the F3 information for each pack.

    The Results
    1x literal:
    In this pack, I got an average of 31-35 FPS.

    1x on 16x canvas:
    This pack gave me a little less FPS, averaging from 25-30.

    16x Default:
    This pack also gave me around 25-30 FPS.

    16x Simplified:
    Again, the 25-30 FPS, as all the other 16x packs gave me.

    32x Default:
    With these, it had to load twice the pixels. I got between 18-24 FPS running it.

    32x Simplified:
    Along with the above, 18-24 FPS.

    The Aftermath
    The 1x literal had much less lag because it only had to load one pixel per texture, the 1x 16x pack having to still load all 256 pixels, the pixels just being the same color.

    The 16x Default and Simplified both had around the same amount of FPS, because on both the same amount of pixels were loaded, though the second had all similar colors. It still had to load all 256 pixels, though some of the pixels were the same color.

    The 64x packs show that even though some of the "pixels" are large, it still has to load the individual pixels inside these large ones, effectively slowing down the frames per second. The simplified adds on to the above.

    The Conclusion
    In conclusion, we see that it doesn't matter if the colors in your pack are the same, it's not going to help your frames per second. The only way to actually increase your FPS texture-pack-wise is to use packs that are actually lower resolutions, like 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x, even stuff like 14x, 6x, 9x, etc. work too with the correctly sized terrain.png. There are some nice lower resolution packs out there too, like Tinycraft, Rawrush, and more, I'm sure.

    Well, that's my study. If you'd like, you may link to this thread on any of those simple packs that say your FPS will be better with them, or simple packs in general. I'm hoping people will see this before they put these packs up, and more actual packs can be seen, instead of the simple packs coming out every other hour.

    Oh, the reason I get such low FPS is because I'm running Minecraft on a laptop. Don't ask why it says 1.7.4, either.

    Sweet 1.3. Still wish you would add boarders back.

    I'm still considering this idea! Perhaps I could get to work on it later today.

    Quote from epiclinkfan101

    Woah, you continued it. :o
    Got a bit of nostalgia seeing this pack again after so long, still looking good. :)

    Thanks! It's great to see that people have been using and enjoying it for such a long time.

    Quote from BenCarreiro

    I've used this texture pack since it came out, always loved it, stopped using it 1.7 - present due to computer problems though, but now time to get it back! Sadly, it looks like your customizer link is down? I am not sure, I will try again later to make sure.

    The customizer should be working. Who knows, might have been down for a few minutes or something.
    Regardless, thank you for being a loyal fan of the pack, it's great to see people like you. :D

    posted a message on [16x][hub] The Fiftyniner's Texture Pack Hub!

    This thread is for showing of all of my texture packs and all news concerning any new packs or new updates on existing texture packs! If you'd like to suggest some ideas, leave comments on something, ANYTHING concerning my packs, this is the place for it!

    To go to the threads, click either the Support Link (adf.ly links) or Direct Links. (No adf.ly)

    Fiftyninecraft is my first pack. I made it back in April and still update it daily with new textures and updates. The pack also supports the Aether mod. I'm trying to make the pack extremely customizable with new textures and such. If you have suggestions for the pack, please check my thread Suggest-A-Texture.
    Here are some screenshots. You can see all of the textures (There are alot!) on the thread, which the you can find a link to above.

    Cobblecraft is a pack I made after I got bored and decided to mess around with the cobblestone design. I ended up creating this pack. I don't really do anything with it, but I try to keep it updated with the latest version of Minecraft. It's more of a mess around with it for fifteen minutes or so kind of pack. It seems alot of people like it too.
    There are some more screenshots on the thread, but here are a few here.

    Speedpak was a texture pack created for a challenge where you had to create a pack in 3 hours or less. I got mine done in a few minutes under the time limit. The pack is becoming my second serious pack, but the thread isn't very active. If you want, you can go to the thread and post.
    Here are the screenshots. They were taken on the Liquidcraft server. If you want, go to www.liquidcraft.net and check out the server. It's very nice there.
    ANYWAYS... Screenshots!

    Those are my packs so far! I'm not taking requests for whole packs, so don't bother. :3

    If you wanna check out some of my other threads, here you go:
    Suggest-A-Texture - Request a texture to be put in Fiftyninecraft!
    Bannercraft - Tutorial for how I create my banners!
    Fiftyninia Island - My own island survival map!
    Check it! I'm making some schweet textures for a friend's mod!

    Note that all my textures have Creative Commons licenses, a good paragraph or two explaining what can and can't be done with my textures, and is a Union Gold-protected texture pack. Don't try anything tricky.
