Q: What are the System Requirements? A: If you just want to be able to run it, you don't need a good computer. I personally have a GTX 970, i7 4790k and 16GB DDR3 RAM, which is defenitely not beefy. But I don't really play much with the textures, so I don't need anything more powerful at the moment. If you want to play smoothly, something like a RTX 2070 should be fine in most cases. But this highly depends on your settings, resolution and the map you are playing on etc. Allocate about 5GB of RAM to Minecraft! Q: How do I get more FPS? A: The most important factor is resolution. In your shader menu you can change "render resolution" to 0.7. It makes it a bit blurry but a lot smoother. Also, you can play in window mode and scale down the window. Smaller window = more fps. Also, Minecraft's Render Distance should be lowered, this also has a huge impact on performance. I recommend maxing out the shader's settings but in case you want more fps, you can experiment with it, but I don't think it's worth it.
Q: Do I need to download all the Versions? A:No, just the most recent. It contains all textures I have done so far.
Q: How do you create the texures? A: I photograph/scan all the textures myself. I don't use any free stock textures from the internet. I use basic 2D and 3D software like Affinity and most importantly Blender. I could do all the work with free software (Gimp + Blender). It's just like with drawing, you can create some great drawings with just a pencil, just as you can create textures with the most simple tools. It's not about the tools, it's about how you use them.
Q: Will this pack be released anytime soon? A: I will not texture all blocks, only the most important ones and only those with potential for awesome graphics. As soon as I have enough blocks textured, I will put together a lower resolution pack, that will be 100% free, forever. This will most likely be when Sonic Ether's PTGI shader will be fully released, since this pack is created for this specific shader.
Q: Where do I download the Textures used in my videos? A: Currently, Tier 2 Patreon Supporters get access to the files.
