Pumpkins and Watermelons...
(see attached BEFORE and AFTER pictures)
Why did they bother with any changes to the pumpkins?
AND WHO THOUGHT the watermelons were BETTER?!?!?!
I've seen a LOT of different melons and fruits... I've NEVER seen one like this.
To me... the new watermelon... needs to be scrapped in favor of the old texture ASAP!
You really need to stop TYPING IN CAPS RANDOMLY. It's not making any of your points any more valid. In fact, it just makes you look like an upset child in a tantrum.
At any rate, you keep yelling on how they should 'revert' all the textures and how they are all garbage. I hate to break it to you, but that's simply not going to happen at this point. The texture update is coming whether or not we want it to, so it's best to compromise and give actual constructive responses. State ways in which they could improve the current texture, or revise the new Jappa iterations to perhaps fit a bit better. For example, I do prefer the new watermelon's texture. The stripes are much more prominent and interesting and seem less 'smudged' like the old textures. However, I wish he would have retained the old dixie-queen colouration instead of a stereotypical 'watermelon' appearance. The old colour scheme was a bit more unique and fit in better with jungles, imo.
Er, it's pretty obvious that it's a stylistic choice...
Minecraft has and always will have a default of 16x16 because it compliments the retro, simplistic, 'blocky' aesthetic that Minecraft that it's had since its conception.
Anyway, photorealistic packs absolutely take away the magic imo and fall into an uncanny valley a lot of the time, but I suppose to each their own.
