Now that things have died down a little after my last controversial 1.7 announcement, it’s time for another!
From 1.7 onwards, HD Textures will be free!
They will be the new default, but you can still switch to the pixelated original textures which will be renamed ‘Classic’ in the options menu.
So if you were thinking of buying HD textures any time soon, you might want to hold off and wait for 1.7.
I’ve been working on the clouds when in HD mode too
