Ok as this is progressing very slowly I'll put out the textures I have done. These include the already produced textures from the others in this thread, credit to them.

There are 5 things I'm not overly happy with. These are:

The fortune Cookie
The Claws
Both the magnets
The cold chicken
The force Gems (Just recoloured an AE crystal)

I've had a go and if anyone would like to post some better versions of these that would be great.

These are for MC ver 1.5.2



Hope this will fill a gap till jwaterfall finishes his textures.

Seconding a request to have this picked up again. The new machines all need to be Sphaxified. :)

Sphax or HanFox, if you're reading this, someone needs to take this over, I believe it's been abandoned... we desperately need this to be finished sometime soon. I know BlueDart likes to change his mod often, but we need textures, it's been months. Thank you for your time and understanding.

@ButtonPusher
The problem with mods like this, is they seek to do what other mods have already done and so their popularity relies solely on a narrow fan base. As such, too many other popularized mods are gaining momentum right now (ic2, buildcraft, thermal expansion, thaumcraft, etc...). Once the textures for those mods are fleshed out, someone may be able to dedicate a chunk of time to this, but it really comes down to practicality for the texture-er. Most artists on here, only texture those mods that they use - that's just the reality.

I feel like dartcraft is a little late to the party, in terms of viable functionality compared to the mainstream mods that I've already mentioned.

To address some misconceptions... Sphax does not texture mods anymore, he's too busy with other projects and keeping the base bdcraft texture pack up to date. HanFox is already at capacity with nearly, I'd say... +/-50% (loose approximation) of the mods being textured here, but there's a small chance he might...

As far as someone "needing" to take over; that's entirely subjective. I would suggest that there are other more popular mods which need tending to before this one, but that's my opinion, as it is your opinion that this mod "needs" to be textured. Desperation for textures is like a tree falling in a secluded jungle; if there's no one around to hear it, does it make a sound? (metaphorical)

This thread has now been bumped 3 times this month with no responses for being taken over. I'd say the tree made no sound... at least for now. Please be patient. If someone likes this mod enough, it will get done. :)

@Aedaeum

Sorry if I appeared ignorant with a post such as my previous one.

I know about Dartcraft's unpopularity, that isn't really why I'm yelling up the ladder to the rooftop. It's in FTB packs, and Slowpoke does like it & has stated numerous times on Twitch that he will use it in a FTB pack (or packs) in the future, so I'm sure it will return, even if nerfed a bit. This is why it's "needed" to be worked on by whoever wants to. Just elaborating a bit here...

I do know that Sphax doesn't do mod textures, again, just yelling up the ladder... I do that, but I don't spam or bother busy people. No offense intended! XD

I am a very patient man, I can wait, I just wanted to "help it along" a bit by stomping around a little on the forums here, kicking up the dust.

To the original artist, and those that have already submitted updates: thank you very much, I appreciate your work, as I do not know how to create textures myself. Now I feel a bit inspired to perhaps educate myself on how to start doing so using the available information. I would enjoy having some side projects as a hobby (other than compiling modpacks and playing the game so much!), and I am interested in learning something new & contributing to the community. Thank you, and thank you also, Aedaeum, for the inspiration. XD

I PMed you about taking control of this thread. We don't need a bunch of the same threads floating around.
