HD Textures will be FREE in 1.7


#51

you aren’t the only one @Fort_Donkey though I don’t think I’d go so far as to say I don’t like it, I just think I prefer standard for some reason. don’t even know what that reason is actually, it’s a purely irrational decision on my part :smiley:


#52

I also like standard. Probably because I use it so much.


#53

This is pretty cool. :slight_smile: Will it be that on the HD (default) version we will have the new font, and if we go back to the classic texture pack, Will it have the classic font as well?? I think it would be really cool if it did for some of us sentimental players. :slight_smile:


#54

When HD textures come out, you can still use the normal one. As for fonts, I certainly hope so, because I’m not a fan of the new font.

And yay, my dreams are alive! I’ve always wanted to get HD textures (mostly for paintings–and the experience too) but debated it would waste my money…so…are we going to get any ideas on how the new eyes are going to look…? I’m very curious now that it was mentioned…


#55

I think the new font will affect the entire game, no matter what definition your blocks are. Dave mentioned on twitter that he was even changing (tweaking) buttons and colors and stuff because of the new font - that would be a lot to undo and switch back and forth from.


#56

Oh. I hope the double time isn’t going to be free.


#57

oh no the HD texture pack thing will make mes insanity to be around I would hate that


#58

The only thing I don’t like about the HD textures is the eyes of the blockhead :eyes:, but dave is changing that in the update.


#59

A while ago, actually, that sort of already happened. All crafting times were halved (including double time’s times, so double time still had an effect).


#60
Can I have my money back then?

I don’t really want it back this is just a joke


#61

If you are talking about HD textures:

If you are talking about double-time: it still has an effect - things craft twice as fast (takes half the time) as they do without it. Everything’s time was halved, with and without double-time, keeping the ratio and the effect of double-time. (TL;DR: double time still works and crafts things at twice the speed of without it)


#62

i think you meant twice as fast not half as fast


#63

Time was halved, speed was doubled.

Why are people asking for their money back on HD textures?

If you buy a game in a shop at full price and the next week the shop decides to have a sale and sell the game at half price; are you entitled to a refund of half your money?
No, no you are not. That’s life.

If you buy a game in a shop at full price and the next week the shop decides to offer that game as a free gift when you go into the shop to look around; are you entitled to your money back?
No, no you are not. That’s life.

If you’ve already bought HD textures, then as Dave said, you have made a contribution towards the development on the Blockheads. How does that feel? YOU contributed to making the Blockheads :open_mouth:

If you haven’t bought it yet but were thinking about it; say thank you to Dave, by telling us that this is going to happen soon he has saved you a little money. He could have kept quiet and allowed more people to purchase HD textures so he gets more money.


#65

I was joking


#66

MummyK you are absolutely right, I currently don’t have a way of buying things online but I do make sure to watch ads as often as possible. I’m not a big part of Dave getting paid but I do try my best. Dave is worth whatever can be done


#67

It wasn’t a direct response to you Boltlord, loads of people have said they want a refund. Some, like you, will have been joking, but others are genuinely asking for their money back.


#68

I just noticed this on my other device that does NOT have HD textures. The advertisement popup has a option to “Restore” HD on your other device.


#69

My favorite word in the entire world…

Free :heart_eyes:


#70

Not exactly free :joy: You’ve already paid for it. You are allowed to download it on any devices that have the same account as the one you originally purchased the HD textures.
