    Try using Photoshop's content area feature, it fixes up large areas nicely. Of course, dont rely on it too much, its not perfect.

    It sounds like you aren't a pirate, either.

    I recolored floppy's CTM wools to match soar's original wool colors. Let me know what you think:
    A big change is that the cyan wool is now cyan like it should be, not a third blue color.

    big question - where are all the CTMs?
    i see nothing but slightly randomized stone bricks now.

    Where are all the CTMs? /ctm/random.png... I did remove a bunch of stuff in the last update.

    The CTM wools were removed because they were bright and there was a preference for the pastel colors. I was hoping to keep wool CTM, but it didn't work out right.

    But I loved the CTM wools! Add them back!

    Shoeboxam Administrator/ Invictus Staff Member

    Sounds like we need some pastel wools. Floppy, do you still have the .pdn for the wools so you you can CTM the original wool colors via "history" or "strokes" or whatever it's called?

    Gimp (free program) has clone tool too. Don't worry about that feature, it's better to use clone tool, healing brush etc than that if you are a begginer anyway. It will be a bit tricky at start but it's quite simple actually.

    Oh, shoe, I really like those CTM wools you have up there (and I liked it too!)

    And can we have a smooth sandstone CTM? Unless I'm missing something, there doesn't seem to be one in 2.0.2

    Comes there also a CTM for colored glass (Forestry).
    PS: The standard glass isn't working, how can I fix it?
  12. Shoeboxam

    Shoeboxam Administrator/ Invictus Staff Member

    Mod CTM is not possible, sorry. Use the customizer for connected glass. I forced the connected glass texture to look connected because it just looks best that way, but connected glass is still available in the customizer. :p

    @Drum: Lines are good IMO! They look better than no lines! Same concept on the glass. ;)

    what exactly happened to these, is anyone going to add them or what?

    The bookshelves were bugging me, so I remade them:

    What are you talking about?
  17. Disaster86

    One of the reasons behind the wool CTM ban was colour.
    I was just proving that the 1x1 CTM texture takes priority.
    Henceforth, no difference.

    Will we ever get wool CTM back? It's not a big deal either way, but I'm curious.
  19. Disaster86

    Disaster86 Minecraft Modder

    Currently, it doesn't look like it will happen, there are too man problems with it. But if we keep improving the texture, we might be able to get it back.
    The files can be found on this thread, I might include it officially as an option with the next update, Which I am hoping can be a CTM Overhaul update.

    Connected wools!

    These wools are direct manipulations of the original Soar wool, meaning the colors are exact. The creases are on the edges now, so the wool doesn't shift when it moves from 1x1 to 1x2.

    Also linked is the base texture for wools without trim in the terrain.png format:

    DrumMaster4 Texture Reviewer / Moderator Staff Member

    I can't tell if you can see it on this picture, but the wool has a pretty insane color differentiation near the edges of the wool


    I also put in terrain#.properties in the CTM folder. But it doesn't change anything.
  22. Shoeboxam

    Shoeboxam Administrator/ Invictus Staff Member

    Woolbases.png isn't really supposed to be used in the terrain.png, but I don't mind it being an alt.

    All you need to do is move the entire CTM folder into your texture pack. Cannot be on 1.5, but I have a version of these wools in Soartex_Snapshot that is compatible with 1.5.

    Here are some bookshelves!
    {I think he meant this link. http://files.soartex.net/transfer/Bookshelves.zip -gold}
    These bookshelves only work in 1.5 with the latest MCPatcher 3.0.0 beta.
    1. They are connected horizontally.
    2. The left, right and center connected textures are all randomized separately.
  23. DrumMaster4

    DrumMaster4 Texture Reviewer / Moderator Staff Member

    Oh okay. So drag CTM into Soartex, not the .properties into ctm. I get it.

    As for the bookshelves, I look forward to using them in 1.5

    Shoe, I suppose you can still find the old CTM in the patcher? After all this time, I still think that one was best.
  25. Shoeboxam

    Shoeboxam Administrator/ Invictus Staff Member

    What do you mean old CTM?
  26. Tudoreleuu

    Tudoreleuu Well-Known Member

    The one with lines at the edges of the wool.
  27. Shoeboxam

    Shoeboxam Administrator/ Invictus Staff Member

    The one I just posted has lines at the edge of the wool... you mean unconnected wool? If you want to just unconnect the wool, open /ctm/ and delete any folder that says wool on it. In 1.4.x there is only one, in 1.5 there will be four wool folders.

    Sorry about that, didn't pay enough attention.

    Oops, I'm sorry, I forgot all about CTM Wool...
    Shoe, can I have the wool textures that you want me to CTM-ifiy?
