Don't forums usually have a poll system? Why not one of those to make things easier?

Well, ain't that a bummer. Anyways, I still need some time to decide before I cast my vote.

Personally, I like the current default to be the default. :D Of course, I'm a creature of habit, and doesn't change easily once settled.

I think that we should either keep the default one, or have the current default be downloadable. (If you can already download it, I don't know where)

I would go for a darkened version of http://c55.me/minetest/forum/viewtopic.php?id=224.

Another method is copy pasting the best textures from a couple of similar styled packs.
We must be careful not to clone Notches mistakes.

I'm very glad this topic exists. IMO, the current default textures are really not the best, and make the MT world look rather bad for me. I took a look at the other texture packs, and I believe my vote goes to Almost MC.

My only objection with this texture pack is that grass (and possibly dirt too) could be less sharp and have less contrast. The grass looks like it has too many white spots on it. Also, I believe the Cobblestone and Mossy Cobblestone textures could be better. Other than that, I believe that is the best alternative at the moment.

Cisoun's pack would be my second favorite. But I don't believe some of its textures are as fitting for defaults, so I can't say I vote for it. Would however be nice if SOME textures from that package could be used over the Almost MC ones (such as the grass and torches).

I love textures from Ardorcraft there are under a MIT licence so no problem to use it!
You can find them in the ardorcraft API but the format is not good so i cut them. You can find textures here if somebody wants to make a 16x16 texture pack with it.

Free software exists to share so why not use it for MT? Ardorcraft is just an API it doesn't need a particular visual style (and Ardorcraft have already differents sets of textures) but MT needs one!

If i must vote for a pack in the list, i vote for Cisoun's texture pack because MT needs to be different than minecraft.
You can edit your post and add me to the list. :)

But IMHO monsters and tools sucks in cisoun's texture pack so mix all we have is a better solution.

This isn't going anywhere. But oh well, as long as the texture pack ISN'T minecraft or whatever, I'm fine with it.

Why not mix some textures from the bests packs to create one another?
Not here for a while due to some troubles between my graphic card and Minetest.

I think it's the right way too.

+1. Like I said in my previous reply, I'd like to see a mix between "Almost MC" and your texture package.

Yes, I would like to see the stylings from mixed packs.

New user here, I only started playing MT a week ago. Also, I never played MineCraft, so I think I´m relatively unbiased towards it being similar or different concerning the looks by the way.

By now I have checked out all the texture packs which were posted in this section (given that the links still worked).

One of my favourites is MineToon, but that has a pretty distinct style and while it is really neat I don´t think it should be the "official" default. In fact, the current default is really decent and generic, so I´ll vote for it. The only thing which bothers me about it is that the MESE blocks have written MESE on them - that looks extremely makeshift and therefore unprofessional. Decide on a color, make some funky texture based on stone and, for example, yellow, and there you have your MESE blocks. It is supposed to be some natural resource, right? Unless it was buried underground by some ancient civilization or aliens it shouldn´t have letters on it, that only kills immersion.

I also like the 4x4 pack, but that might be too minimalistic considering crafting more complex items.

I vote for Cisoun's Texture Pack because in addition to being beautiful, it is also very consistent and very neat.

I don't really care about what texture pack it will be in the end... Just one thing:
KEEP MESE!
It's the best joke of the game, if it looks like diamonds it would be quite unlogical (also mese sword, mese tools and mesecons would be nonsense).
Of course you can draw it in a different way, but keep it yellow! Also keep the word mese, please. :D
