Minecraft Texture Packs

Hello! Few days ago I promised you to write about texture packs, but because of many many factors I had to delay this post. Now finally I've got all I want to show you.
To start with default texture pack, so you can see the difference
Default Texture Pack
I think that everyone know those blocks, so I'll just proceed.
Now my personal favorite, Xaivaker 1.7 by xaivern
Xaivaker 1.7
 I love it because of this purely awesome wood, and wooden planks. Also, ores looke better imo. More info on minecraftforum.net

 Now few others that I enjoyed in random order.

Zelda Texture Pack by Alyxandor
Zelda Texture Pack
It is nice, and quite cool for ppl who prefer making houses and stuff, than exploring. Author's blog.

I like those wool textures, you can make a lot of nice patterns. Btw. you MUST check out his video in forum thread, it's purely epic.

Jolicraft 2.6 by andrejolicoeur
Jolicraft 2.6
  Nice in overall, but especially for wooden structures, and forests. There is nice gallery of his screens here.

And the last one, requested via e-mail, Krap X-Ray v1.1 by Kacboy

Krap X-Ray v1.1
It's let's say "useull" but I think cheating is not my favourite way of playing, however some of you might need it. Author's stie.

That's all for today, leave comments, requests, feel free to mail me if you need to. Have fun with your worlds! :)

Beta 1.4 - Additional info!

Hello again! Since few things have recently changed, I need to update my blog ^^

So, you want to know what else happened? There you go!

Sheep spawn in more colors, however rarely. (Confirmed: Brown, Pink)
Movement in flowing water is slower.
Dungeons are more common (unconfirmed).
Flowers and Mushrooms are more common.
Cocoa Beans can be found in Dungeon chests.
Wheat grows more quickly.
Sugarcane can now grow to four blocks tall
The new default hotkey for the inventory is 'E'. 
SMP servers can now have a new world seeded with an option in the Server.properties file. 

Bug fixes:
Zombies and Spiders now hurt you in all instances (previously could only hurt you if they were 1 block above your location).
Client-sided slime spawn on SMP have been fixed.

New bugs:
Crafting Wooden Slab or Redstone Torch would make your game crash. (Was fixed a couple hours after version release, without updating the version number ) 
Tamed wolves whimper in SMP regardless of health. (This is because client-side health was used instead of synched health. ) 
Wolves cannot travel through doors. A small hole can be punched out near the door as they are 1x1, thus creating a "doggy-door" until their pathfinding is updated to recognize open doors as a path they can walk through.
You can place Ladders anywhere underwater, even if there are no walls.
Beds do not always act as the spawn point. This is not a bug, the spawn point will be reverted to the original if the bed is destroyed.
You can create a farm patch using a hoe underwater.
Sometimes torches do not emit light, but can be forced to by placing a light emitting torch near them. If these torches are removed, the light will not go away.

And promised screens! 

Brown sheep :D

Tamed wolf

Coooookies :D

Brown dye in dungeon

Hostile wolves after attacking them

Some neutral wolves

4 blocks high sugar cane. First I was like WTF, but then I've noticed that it's possible now

Weird light bug, still don't know anything about it.  

Unfirtunately I can't post any texture packs here, because authors still need some time to update them for 1.4, but as soon as there will be my favourite one avaliable I'll tell you :)
That's all for now, have fun !

Update ! Beta 1.4

Hello everyone! As you have probably noticed 1.4 is out!
Here are the patch notes straight from Mojang
* Added tameable wolves
* Added cookies
* Sleeping in a bed now resets your spawn position
* New Minecraft logo
* Holding shift while climbing will hang on to the ladder
* Spiders will no longer trample crops
* Lots and lots of infrastructure for Statistics lists and Achievements

While most of the code is written, statistics and achievements won’t show up until the next update. We didn’t quite have time to finish them this week, and didn’t want to delay the update longer.
 Cookies?! Everybody loves cookies :D!
Tameable wolves ? :O Gotta check it out!
Also in few hours I'll post some update screenshots and maybe some textrue packs !
