    Great to hear from Djipi and mdta. I'm glad that you're going to let me use your textures for this project. Now that I have permission I am happy to announce that I am at least halfway done with the entire game as of now. It will certainly not be done for several weeks, but I am working quite religiously to finish the pack. I will try to post some screenshots of my work later in the week as a preview. Thank you all for waiting patiently.

    Patiently waiting for this. Personally I like MM more than OoT, and while I think OoT is a great game, I don't really understand all the infatuation surrounding it.

    Glad to see this game getting some love. Remember that there are a lot of people waiting for this but not necessarily posting. Please take your time and make the quality as high as you can!

    Just checked it out and I must say I love what you've done with it. These textures are top notch and really stand out from the majority of packs I've used before. I especially like how the spin attack looks. The blue and orange versions are differentiated from each other in animation and color (the orange one looking even more boss). I just have two gripes for the moment:

    • I don't like how the hookshot icon was changed to resemble that of the OoT version. I think you should've left it with the design it had in MM (but as hi-res texture, of course).
    • Link's eyes look strange, almost cat-like. He looks more like an alien and not so much like a boy.


    I haven't explored the pack thoroughly yet but it looks pretty slick so far.

    @BLluedart did you get the artists permission to use there work in your pack, just looked at the icons in the screenshot and they look a lot like Feddereli's work or have being taking from the Community Retexture Project.
    @HDL that's because the hook shot icon IS the one from OoT.... And I know for fact he did no make it.

    The work used in the Community Retexture Project is only for use in it unless you have gained the permission of the artist that created it as taking from other projects and using it in your own without even a glimpse of the creators name is quite demoralizing and makes people think, what is the point of doing this.

    Right, that's why I mentioned it...

    bluedart, I noticed a few minor things with this pack.

    • The title screen shows 1998-2010 at the bottom. This game was released in 2000, so it should say 2000-2010.
    • The Skull Kid's drawing isn't on the tree anymore.
    • When running the GC version rom, the year copyright textures are the originals. The very top of the quest status screen also uses original textures (doesn't load the new ones like with the 64 version rom).
    • Every body of water looks like it's running quickly, even in areas where it's supposed to be still.
    • On the second day, the sky should be completely covered with clouds. It looks pretty strange seeing it rain heavily with only a partly cloudy sky.

    Hope you get that permissions stuff sorted out soon, if any. It'd be great to see the pack improved upon.

    Hello everyone, it's nice to see some love for this painstakingly crafted pack. At this time I would like to address some of your comments.

    - The current OoT pack I'm using I downloaded from some third-party website that credited nobody so I wasn't sure who to credit with textures I used from it such as the stalchildren. I have edited my first post to give credit to the OoT community pack because of this.
    - I finished this pack in record time - it took me about 2 months of near non-stop work and in my haste I used several textures that were already done for OoT to speed up the process. Sorry for the inconvenience my hasty plagiarism may have caused. Still, a good 90% of this pack is my original work so let's not condemn it as it really does improve the game by quite a margin - AND it is free of charge. Basically I am releasing what I did on my own computer for fun to the public to get as much enjoyment out of it as I did.
    - I can assure you that the hookshot icon was 100% designed from scratch by me. Seriously, all I did was make a red circle in photoshop, throw a random pattern on it and put a black stroke of about 10 pixels on the outside. If this particular texture looks similar to another it is mere coincidence.
    - I see, for some reason the year says 1998-2010. Yes, that is wrong.
    - As for the comment about quickly flowing water; I do not control the flow of the water, the game does that and I did not even notice this anomaly. If someone has a fix for this I will gladly post it.
    - I was not aware that there is a "GC version rom" lingering about, but I can tell you that it is not supported. The US version of the original rom was used in making this pack and that is the only rom for which it underwent testing. On a side note, what is the upside to using this "GC version rom?"
    - Thank you for bringing the sky to my attention. I noticed in Majora's Mask that there are two and only two skies - one I deemed was a normal, partly-cloudy sky and the other I obviously misdiagnosed as being a mostly clear sky. In fact the sky is one of the earliest things on which I spent my time. I ported djipi's sky textures and did not bother to redo them at a later time with a realistic feel. If someone would like to texture these skies and post a small addendum I would be more than willing to edit the first post with your name(s) and files. I will not be editing the main 400MB pack again though as uploading it took a few days of trying.

    Thank you all for your comments and feedback.

    I'm willing to pass you my related created textures for icons I've made for the OoT texture project for this project if you are interested.
