Higher-Res Pixel Texture Pack

by Piepenguin » Post

Hi there!
I have recently been developing a texture pack for Minetest, as I found the standard textures to be a tiny bit too pixelated, and the existing texture packs, as great as they are, to not be to my liking. (Yes, I'm picky like that!)
Plus, I've always wanted to create a texture pack for a game, and I thought an open-source game like Minetest would be a good place to start.

I have quadrupled the resolution of each texture, so they are now 64x64 pixels each, and I have tried to make them as non-tiling as possible.
The finished textures are:

-Cobble
-Mining Animation
-Grass
-Gravel
-Dirt
-Sand
-Stone
-Tree
-Wood
-Water
-Coal and Iron Deposits

Update!
I have updated the pack to include some more textures:
-Chest
-Furnace
-Glass
-Fence
-Mossy Cobble

I have also darkened the wood texture a bit to make it look a bit more natural and to stop every tree looking like a redwood, and I have refined the coal ore deposit texture some more, as it was lacking some shading.

Another Update!
I have added the following textures to the pack:
-Sign
-Lump Of Iron
-Lump Of Coal

There have also been a few changes to existing textures:
-The transparency bug in the Mining Animation has been fixed
-The rim on the glass block has been expanded slightly, so it is easier to spot

Alternate Textures
An additional folder has also been added which contains alternate versions of other textures.
Included are:
-Glass with shine marks
-Old style, thin rimmed glass
-Stone created from smaller bricks
-Brighter, more turquoise water

I have also fixed a rather strange bug in which glass was shown as a green colour when viewed in the inventory or at a distance.

Update
A few more textures added:
-Book
-Bookshelf
-Brick
-Clay
-Clay Brick
-Lump of Clay
-Torch (All orientations)

It seems the author is kinda dead... I like this texture pack, but it isn't very complete.

I'm not dead, I am working on it! I have just been delayed with other projects and so missed the new release, meaning I've got a lot to catch up on! An updated version will be available soon.

I've updated it again with some textures for the new version of Minetest, and I've finally gotten round to doing torches! Tell me what you think, as always; feedback is always appreciated.

Hey Storm!

What kind of Minetest do you use? Run_in_place? aka a folder which you go into to start minetest? Or not in place, which has a folder in ~/.minetest? When you found the folder, go to textures > all and place the textures in that folder. Remember that almost every texture needs default_ in front of the name to work. Also see this:
http://wiki.minetest.com/wiki/Installing_texture_packs

Piepenguin:
Could you rename all files in the .zip package so that it's compatible with 0.4.x? Because having to rename everything so that the name is good is pretty hard.
Another thing: May I help you making this texture pack? I'd be honored to help making the first (I guess?) HD texture pack in Minetest!

Piepenguin has been inactive for a while. I might look into making an updated version of this. I forget what it looks like and the screenshots are dead.
