    Well, we all figured this might happen. I just got a message from Daniel, who works at Mojang. Basically, he's not asking me to stop the project, but he does want me to change the name and use different textures. Of course I don't want to cause any trouble so I'm going to do just that.
    It is a bit of a shame since the game did look pretty good with the original's textures, but I can't really do anything about that.

    (clouds were a test, really not what I'm going for)
    Because of this, I have taken down the demo that was previously available for download in the first post. I will only be uploading a new one once I have new textures.

    So anyone who has ideas on where to get some nice copyright-free textures, or actually willing to create textures specifically for this project is welcome. [​IMG]
    As for the title, I'm thinking of simply calling it MCDS. Suggestions ?

    You could always use one of the many texture packs people make for minecraft.
    Also why not some boot-leg name like smithcraft or voxelcraft?

    Here is a good texture pack you can try using.

    Yeah, I was thinking about using a pack like that. The one you linked to looks really cool !
    I guess the best thing to do would be to provide direct support for any terrain.png file the user provides. In the meantime though, I guess I should contact the people behind one of those texture packs and ask if it's ok for me to use it as the default textures. (I don't see why they wouldn't allow it since the pack is distributed for free, but still, I'd rather not anger any more people [​IMG])

    Best texture packs are the HD texture packs!

    Now Minecraft for DS...
    Great work! I dreamt of it...

    And the name "MCDS" is good enough. My suggestion would be "BlockCraft".

    Just ignore him, don't change name nor texturex, work in basement and when you finish just release it from behind over 9000 proxy.

    We really don't need another C&D. It's his game and he's just letting smealum make a port of it.

    I am sure Eld Would let you use his texture pack, he may even be willing to aid you in making new textures as well.

    BlockCraft is very good. You want a name that communicates that the game is Minecraft.

    Other ideas:
    Mindcraft [​IMG]
    Meincraft
    Mineblock
    Minesquare
    You might not get away with those, but it's worth a shot.

    HD textures are not originally supported in minecraft (you need to use something like MCpatcher..) and probably wouldn't be easy for the DS to handle it. Some 16x16 texturepack seems to be a better way.

    One of my favorites is the Jolicraft texturepack from andrejolicoeur ( http://www.jolicraft.com/ ). You can find it at the Minecraftforums too.. where you can customize it before downloading if you want (recommended).


    My name suggestion is DsCraft ...good and simple ...but use it before another guy do [​IMG]

    Good luck!

    It could just be a 1 time thing and have it save into your own file format though.
    Also how is it managing culling out unseen blocks?
    Does it only render blocks touching air?

    Edit: Here, I edited the one you had posted and had it use Eld's textures.

    I think the name should be LiBeICraft so it almost sounds Asian, but actually it stands for Limited Beyond Imagination Craft. That way, nubs don't go around saying "y no deep map!?!" or some other stupid crap.

    How about Nitrocraft? Y'know, 'cause the DS's development name was Nitro.

    Thanks, that's great ! [​IMG]

    Anyway, I did a little work on the project (still no "official" name, though I kinda like DScraft) yesterday (hadn't really done anything in a week...heh), and I added stuff like basic weather (well... clouds really) and day/night cycle. I don't have any screenshots showing the sun/moon, but I do have some showing off the new textures !
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    (the grass's color is a little off though, sorry about that)
    You might not really see it in these screenshots but I also have better terrain generation now, including better trees and such. [​IMG]

    Call it TempCraft xD.. or go with DarkStrikerCraft.. I dont mind it at all!
    But i got a question. Doesnt Lamecraft use the textures from Minecraft itself?
    If not, why not ask the creator of Lamecraft to use the same textures? Well i believe 100% that those textures is from minecraft itself.
