    Hey guys! So I have some time this week and wanted to tinker with some easy default textures to make them more "MCME/ours" so here is my first go at it. I would really appreciate some feedback on them and which of the variants you like the best! If one is good enough I would be more than happy to donate them to the resourcepacks ;) If one is selected, I can also design the respective "icon" for when it is in the inventory or in the player's hand.

    UPDATED 2/29/16

    Variant 1
    Filename: flower_pot
    Resource Pack: Eriador, Rohan
    Texture description: Ceramic pot or cup

    Resource Pack: Lothlorien, Gondor (Moria?)
    Texture description: Ceramic pot or cup
    Texture image: e774Yr5.png

    I do like the first version, if we would change the plate texture too.
    Always seemed strange to me that they already had porcelain in Middle Earth.

    Yeah I was not sure what the most common material would be in Middle Earth, thoughts?

    UPDATE - so after some research I think the ceramic option is our best bet

    I have created two new variants, one for Eriador/Rohan and another for Gondor/Lothlorien. I would appreciate some feedback on them, else Finrod these can hopefully be added to the next RP update.

    if only biome specific was added you'd be able to have all the flower pots and all the plates you want. :p

    Really like the brown version, but with the Gondor/white version I'm a bit sceptical; First off: Is there white ceramic?Afaik not (ofc you could argue it was colored/painted), but secondly I think we gotta let go the stereotype of everything being white in Minas Tirith; I'd rather add the same version in all packs.

    white ceramic is made by a particular clay, but the most used pottery during medieval is for sure earthenware (the color is from yellow to the tipical red bricks).

    Oh nice fact! :eek: But I still have the feeling that it's better when not everything in Minas is white ;)

    Easy fix. What color would you like?

    I figured the grey color would be similar enough to the current white color, but stand out just a little more in places like Minas Tirith while still matching in various locations. That being said, I would be happy to design another color scheme OR we could just use the brown ceramic pot for all packs. Thoughts?

    Tbh I see no reason why not to use the same texture everywhere :oops:

    In that case the brown variation is all ready for you to add!

    Can you upload them to github and let me know when that has been done?
