I'm looking to make a patch for vanilla Minecraft to change ores/ingots/tools/armour/blocks so as to change the game up a bit, and wanted to know if it would be possible to use the Sphax textures as a base for the new ones; ie: recolouring and alterations to them to suit the new look of new ores and such.

Fully understand if it isn't allowed to do such a thing, would give original credit to the BDcraft team, just wanted to ask first is all :)

You can recolour items and blocks like that for personal use (or if you were making a patch for a mod / adventure map), but if you're not making big changes to the the look of things in the main pack you won't be able to release it publicly.

So if the textures I made were inteded for a specific server, that would still be allowed?

Since I could make them be specifically for a server that I'm helping work on at the moment. (We're trying to add to the playability of Minecraft and make it feel like you can invest more time into it, and feel a bit fresh from what players are used to, so being able to change ores and stuff to new ones even in vanilla Minecraft would suit that quite well :) )

If you wanted to release a patch for your server to be installed above the main pack in the resourcepacks screen -- like my Rotten Flesh patch -- you can, but you can't redistribute the main pack publicly whole or in part.

So if you wanted to release a modified resourcepack with PureBDcraft styled textures you would only be able to release it privately, not publicly. The server would have to be whitelist only and the link to download the modified resourcepack would have to private, too.
