Want to know a little bit more?
Why is it called Forgotten Lands?
It was ages ago, during Minecraft Alpha. When I first started to play Minecraft, I wished to name my world "The land of forgotten dreams". But that sounded too complicated so I just called it "Forgotten Lands". Then I created a texture pack specificly for that world.
At first I didn't want to make it public, I just redesigned few textures. But then I changed few more textures and more. After Minecraft Beta updates my texture pack has grown into something worth looking at, so I published it. But it is still called "Forgotten Lands", like the first world where it started.
And by the way, after the landscape generation has changed from MC Aplha to MC Beta, I didn't play my first world much, so those lands have been actually "forgotten"...
Do I need to patch the game?
No, you don't have to. The pack runs perfectly on vanilla Minecraft.
How often the pack is updated?
I aim to publish updates the next day after Minecraft releases, however it is not always possible. I don't like rushing into making just something, I prefer to take my time and to put right amount of work into each texture.
Sometimes I have busy weeks at work, so I can't dedicate enough time to making my pack. In other words, I do my best to update the pack as soon as possible, but I can't promise anything.
Why don't you make HD version of the pack?
Because I originally made it in 16x16. It's not like I can simply scale it up, I literally have to redraw every texture once again. And in my opinion, making larger textures is more difficult too. I don't think I have the time and the spirit for such a heroic act.
I have a suggestion for a texture, will you make it?
I consider every suggestion posted on the forum. If I really like it, I'll add it in the next update. If I don't but people keep asking about it, I'll add it as an option to the customiser.
Can I use your pack for my custom map (or server)?
Yes, and you don't have to ask for permission. The only thing I would like from you in return is to mention somewhere that you are using Forgotten Lands texture pack. I hope that's fair enough.
Can I use your textures in my pack?
No, please don't, even if you are going to give credits. Unless you are using your pack privately (by yourself or with a friend). In all other cases, if I spot a pack with my textures somewhere online, I'll be very upset.
