    Hello There!

    Earlier in the year (around summer) we all discussed seasonal packs.
    I decided to lead this project. And I recently began creating what we're calling Soartex Xmas-ver.
    (subject to change)

    20% Complete

    For the pack, we will be editing terrain.png, items.png and a bunch of custom colours and stuff.
    Go nuts.

    If you want to help with this post your applications here.

    Glowstone - White pure white? Just apply it over the glowstone.
    Make the nether wart frosty. Same for the nether.
    Don't do that to the wood. Instead, get some specks of snow on them.
    I donno about that snow. Also, on grass, it should be clear that it has grass underneath.

    Well Actuallly...
    I was thinking of making an entire nether overhaul.
    Custom Colour Nether Fog, Netherrack - Snowstone etc.
    Ghast - Christmas Spirit
    Bla bla bla...

    The cake NEEDS to be made into Christmas Pudding. I'll have a go at a few textures, I had some ideas for some christmas ones a while ago.

    Sheynx Well-Known Member Retired Staff

    The saplings could be like christmas trees, y√°know, with stuff on them. Pweety.
    The moon can be a tree candy, sun a present XD.
    Villagers and zombies can bring presents.
    Arrows could be those bend sugar things, like Dis said for the sugar canes.
    Bats could be santa's sleigh...

    We gotta get texturing though. TIme's short!

    Take the /misc/grasscolor.png and color it white. You might want to hit the other biome palettes as well. ;)

    Okay, we can't be bound to just 1 type of wood, so we're adding 4 types:
    • Sitka - From Tall Spruce Trees - A little lighter than ordinary spruce
    • Maple - From Maple (Birch) Trees - Light (about right for birch)
    • Pine - From Pine (Oak) Trees - Light, yellowish hue
    • Spruce - Unchanged
    I'm getting to work on these right away!

    Perfect. The beards need a bit of work but it all looks awesome. You guys are amazing!! :oops:

    Changing the title to Xmas so people don't think of X-Ray o_O

    It would be cool if we could make cake into turkeys, so we could put it on a table.
    But that would require turkey grass, turkey seeds, turkey wheat, turkey turkeys, turkey turkey eggs, turkey cows and turkey milk.
    Perhaps some turkey sugar canes and turkey sugar as well x)
    Worse yet, it'd have to make sense right? So turkey cookies, turkey potions, turkey paper, turkey books and turkey melons would have to be implemented.

    Status:
    Mob Overhaul:
    • Bat - Robin (it makes sense, and its an amazing coincidence)
    • Ghast - Christmas Spirit
    • Blaze - Frostbitten Soul
    • Magma Cube - Ice Cube
    • Mooshroom - Mystical Cow
    We need more people to help with this, I've been very busy lately, everything I list should be completed unless I state that I'm doing it myself ;)

    Leave the grass. I wanna know what I'm punching snow or grass. Let the older snow be snow and this new snow be grass. Don't touch the side grass.
    Looks good!
    Don't forget the lamps. I suppose we can't have Christmas threes...? You an get some snow on the Gui.
  19. Disaster86

    Disaster86 Minecraft Modder

    Snow GUI sounds really good, Perhaps your right about the grass, do you think we should make it patchy, like having a little snow on it?
    Pine, Spruce & Sitka Spruce are all Christmas Trees XD
    Maple is a random evergreen I chose to fit Birch (similar leaf colour)

    Can the lamps, glowstone or redstone lamps have like a combo of colors? the colors of Christmas, red,yellow, green and blue, I think they would look cool :)

    Again this is just an idea. ^_^

    PS: the regular villager could be wearing the Santa helpers's clothes

    What about if the GUI has snow on top of each element? or a background with snowflakes? *wondering*

    Just so were clear, Shenyx and Valsis are still reviewing this pack XD
    However, as host, only I can implement textures, If they're liked by the reviewers or enough other people, I'll add them regardless of opinion.
    As for submitted ideas, don't be too creative, stick to the basics, it keeps you from drifting away x)
    Do what you do best! :)

    Sheynx Well-Known Member Retired Staff

    Just so we are clear, I do believe we are not Texture Reviewers for nothing. Our job is to give feedback on textures and to ensure that the right things go in the pack and the bad stuff gets poked off it. :)
    Updates only contain what we approve based on how much the community likes them and how they fit the pack.

    Woo Christmas! Little early IMO, but it's probably a lot harder than I think. After all, I'm a little nooby. Might have a go at some of these tomorrow, like mobs (hehe...doubtful).

    EDIT: Vines can be mistletoe...?

    EDIT 2: Cows (or something) as reindeer?

    EDIT 3: Sponge should have something decorative, I just don't know what

    Don't be so categoric, Disaster, they may think like you too because of that...Just do your best guys and girl. Even if we don't have everything, even a few things would add to the pack. We can always expand on a base.
