I would like to make a texture pack based on the MCMiddleEarth packs. It would be distributed for free ( with no adfly , no donate heres, etc) I will provide full credit to McMiddleEarth including a link to the official website. It would use some of the textures off each pack and combine them with new ones.

Is this allowed? If so , what are the licensing terms for your texture packs.


Kind regards,
Zippppppppppppppp
