Minor update today: Greatly improved the appearance of the glass insert in homedecor "fancy" door, and also made it slightly translucent for alpha-capable clients/servers (looks fine without that feature, also).

Accidentally stripped off the alpha channels from homedecor "fancy" door in all resolutions. Fixed.

Major update today in anticipation of a new feature coming soon:

Minetest will soon have bumpmapping capability (see RealBadAngel's fork if you're impatient to try it), so all of the images here have appropriate data in the form of normalmaps (which define how rough a surface is), along with specular maps (which define how shiny it is), for when that feature is ready to use.

In the process, I weeded out a number of obsolete images from mods that are long dead or no longer useful - namely images for the old server-side particles, irontrees, growing_trees, and terraforming mods, and I removed a few other obsolete images here and there. Also flattened and converted several .png's to .jpg where possible.

Users of vanilla minetest without bumpmapping capability will see no appreciable change, except minor changes to a few base textures (such as wood, mese blocks, and one or two others) have changed slightly (I had to re-do them from scratch to get them to look right). Of course the download is bigger, too. :-)

Please note that the repository URLs have changed to better reflect the names of these texture packs. The old "realistic textures" repositories have been deleted as obsolete.

Finally, I announced this a little too early, and then had to retract that announcement almost immediately because of an error in one of my management scripts that I didn't find until after the initial upload of the 64-512px sizes, which screwed up a lot of images. This has been fixed in all sizes. If you downloaded HDX at any point whatsoever today, you will need to re-download or re-clone it, as necessary. Sorry about that. :-/

Another update: Ran pngcrush on all of the PNG images, and jpegoptim on all of the JPEG images. This cut the 512px size down from 705 to 680MB without any change of quality. Less change to other sizes (16px is still about 20MB).

Thanks for pointing me to pngcrush and jpegoptim! It will help me save some hard drive space by compressing(without changing the quality) all the art/clip art in my pictures folder.

Hey there .o/

If you wish to further optimize the weight, still without quality loss, you can use PngOptimizer (freeware) and pngout (the command line version is freeware) on your PNG textures.
And if you really have lots of time on your hands, you may give a try to PNGGauntlet, also freeware, which can give even slightly better results.

Actually I already ran all the regular png textures (not the normal/specular maps) through pngquant also, reducing them all to 8-bit where possible, which shaved the total size down further to about 634 MB.

Next step will be to reduce the quality settings on the jpegs as far as they'll go without sacrificing visible quality.

A few more updates: Added support for Steel mod, and put in new textures for mossy cobble and gloopblocks mossy stone brick. Added moreblocks circular/table saw. Fixed a bunch of png's that got flattened by mistake (and a few that should have been but weren't). Added support for PilzAdam's carts mod.

Haha...
The 512px size requires a 64 bit OS, about 6 GB free RAM and a modern, fairly beefy video card under the same conditions.
I ran this fine on a 32bit 2gb Netbook running Windows... With over 70 mods running. Lol.

Wow - I have to wonder then what it is that MT does on my box that consumes so much RAM by comparison, as I "only" have 19 pages in UI, plus another roughly 14 pages' worth of items that aren't shown (because they're only available via a machine of some type or by crafting).

Quick question... What is the maximum number of items Minetest is able to handle? I know there is some kind of limit...

4096, currently. There are possible plans to raise this limit to 65534.

Your textures for Sokomine's cottages mod are very good. Whenever you have the time and the will to do so, could you make textures for the darkage mod? Not many texture packs support it, even though most of its blocks consist of mud types, brick types, and rock types. One of the highlights of the mod is that it adds a little more diversity to generated worlds.

One thing you could do is have certain parts of your texture packs be separate downloads or separate folders. This would make it easier for people to pick and choose what they need.

Vanessa, it is the renderer being a piece of shit. Your machine is fine otherwise.

The renderer is causing it? If that is so, do you know of any way it could be fixed? If you do, the knowledge could be useful to the developers of Minetest. I too feel that RAM and CPU usage can be optimized, but that is no small task.

I may add support for it at some time, but not right now (there are quite a few texture files).

Pull requests are of course welcome (512px for all tools and in-world objects, 64px for inventory items; I'll handle downscaling them for 256px and lower).

Hello VE,
here the changes to textures in my StreetsMod:

In the textures containing labels, all asphalt has been removed. It will be put into the texture by the mod itself.

Actually, do the related textures the same way as they are now, because they have to be rendered with a blend mode (in GIMP) that can't be done in realtime in the engine, in order to get the right look.
