    If these new textures I made get to the costumizer for wooden planks, they will be automatically set up for stairs and slabs as well. If you open the link I posted previously you can see stairs there and slabs too :)

    I don't have the creative walls :( Could someone help me with this?!??!? (I have the latest version of soartex and optifine)

    What version of Soartex do you have?

    I have the version from the customizer for 1.5 (I don't have 1.6 :()

    Why don't you have 1.6? Unless you're playing cracked or are using an unsupported version of LWGLGL (idk how to spell), 1.6 is available from the new launcher.

    I think that there should be a standardized list of block textures that texture authors of several texture packs agree on.

    Here's what I would propose with the current list though. Note that this is purely conceptual and I do not expect anyone to have the time to make this many textures.
    • I want to keep differences between the modified textures and the original texture to a degree where they can be used interchangeably (so if someone using default or another texturepack comes along, the build won't be ruined in their eyes).
    • I want to remove the colored planks as they are not that useful at the current stage and they are wasting 16 texture slots.
    • I also want to standardize similar blocks across textures. I want to move all pavers into the :14 slot for example.
    Bold indicates change.

    5:4 Large planks
    5:5 Black planks/alternate spruce planks texture
    5:6 White planks/alternate birch planks texture

    Can you say "Giant Wall of Text"? Just kidding, I'm messing with you. Let me just nitpick this list though, because that's my personality.

    I promise it's not bad! Well, 90% of it isn't a critique :p

    General Comment: Are some of these textures you listed to be taken from the customizer or will they be all new textures?

    First Sentence (open)

    As good of an idea as standardized lists are, I feel like there's a small chance it would work as you want it to. Not everyone will want to implement Creative Blocks (nor knows how). It's a good idea in theory, but practicality is an issue.
    5:x (open)

    :4 - See general comment
    :5 - I agree
    :6 - I agree here as well
    :7 - Mossy and makeshift are really two different things. Personally I would have to go with makeshift planks (unless there was a way to randoCTM them to be makeshift mossy planks...
    :8 - I'm not sure how many people would use them. Also, if we're envisioning it the same way, it would get a little crazy to the eye
    :12 - Where is this coming from? I know (thought) Hive was in Creative Blocks already
    :13 - See :12
    43:x (open)

    :2 - Reinforced how? I may try texturing this, so I'd like to see if you have any ideas in mind
    44:x (open)

    :2 - I'm almost wondering if this slab should be like a tile sort of thing. What do you think? (Ya know, based off blue tile but with a different texture and color scheme
    :8-:15 - Now this is a good idea. It provides 8 slots for creative textures that maybe have nothing similar contained in the pack. Yes!

    :all - I agree with all of these here, no need for individual comments
    24:x (open)

    :all, excluding :8 - Agree, love this idea.
    :8 - 2x2? Elaboration may be necessary here
    97:x (open)

    :all - Yes, I've been at points building where I feel something like this is necessary
    98:x (open)

    :all - YES to the one! xD
    155:x (open)

    :5 - Why a companion cube? Just out of curiosity – it seems like a random idea
    :13, :14 - Yep, I like this.
    31:x (open)

    :all - Yeah, this is a cool idea. Never thought of it before.
    115:x (open)

    :all - Demonic/hellish grin and evil laugh (that's a yes!)
    139:x (open)

    :11 - What kind of wooden planks?
    The Rest (open)

    :all - Very cool idea indeed. Creative blocks could use some plants that don't require much modding besides a Patcher

    *Note: I'm not sure all of them will be able to work (I'm namely talking about the plant ideas. It's cool, but is it possible to get that?)

    About the Hive, Gift, Sandstone 2x2 etc.

    I simply moved them out of places like Quartz to more appropriate areas.

    As for the crops, I'm not really too sure how it would work (my guess is that the crops would attempt to grow every now and again or something)

    I would like to see a standard list for texture packs as well, and you've convinced me to make a lot of changes to the block list. I will wait until 1.7 to implement any changes because people will be restarting their worlds for that. I have no problems with lifting all restrictions on the .properties files so other texture packs don't need to create their own support.

    I didn't think of keeping the metadata the same on pavers, that's smart. Using the double slabs and old wooden slab is a fantastic idea, as well.

    When it comes to implementing this new list, I'm probably going to make some edits and changes as I test things. It has many great ideas, but the devil's in the details.

    The biggest drawback I see is that almost everything outside the five block IDs I currently have and the slab blocks have to be placed by MCEdit, or incremented via a server mod...

    I actually think the gift should be moved to the slabs section, as it can be opened :)

    Leaving a new slot for something else. If the log planks is removed, this leaves 2 spaces for new wooden/burning materials.

    Edit: I specifically picked blocks with data values :)

    Can I make a request? Can we have Mossy and Cracked Circular stone bricks?
