Mapart Program?

Discussion in 'Minecraft' started by DjrQ, Mar 21, 2018.

  1. Hey there,

    Does anyone know of a program or website that reduces the colors of a picture to the colors that are available in placable blocks?

    If so... Could you please share? I've been trying to find such a thing for weeks now!

    Thanks!

  2. How do you use it? Because I am familiar with it,but I need an actual example to work from when Im creating mapart. I use some online embroidery (lol, for real) program to pixelate, and MS Paint to scale to 128x128 and put a pixel raster on it.
     
  3. Spritecraft.

    Edit: I've been reading the old posts that I made over the years, and I was extremely rude in this thread. I apologise Dj, if you ever by chance see this.

  4. Yes. On first glance: Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a bunch amigo!
     
  5. Tried it out now. It's a good, albeit older program
    Doesnt account for newer, post 1.8 blocks, like concrete or terracota. Other than that, it's perfect.... atleast now I know I need 8804 blocks of white wool/concrete for my next mapart
     
  6. Thats cool. Changes very little about the issues.
     
  7. How? I really don't get it. Said it's a nice program with some minor flaws, you reply that it's free. Say I know, but it doesn't take away the minor flaws, you respond that it being free fixes the flaws? I don't understand? Do you have a personal and/or emotional investment in the program?

    If someone offers me a car with a flat tire for free, I'll take it (because I know how to work around or fix a flat tire and -hey - atleast the engine seems to be working!), but it still has a flat tire. The fact that it's free doesn't really change that, does it?

    So thanks for pointing out the program to me, it's honestly useful, and I will use it. But don't try to counter a factual discription of it with a non-issue :) That's a bit silly.

  8. And I really DO like this program: it shows EXACTLY how many of each material I need :) It saves so much time and work, now that I can actually plan ahead in stockpiling material!

    Spritecraft - Go use try it if you're thinking about making mapart!
     
  9. So because it’s free it can’t have flaws? He’s trying to tell people about the benefits and drawbacks

  10. What Kydog said :) Was doing an objective review of the program. Let's not fight or bicker about this please.
     
  11. He mentioned it being old because it doesn’t account for concrete and terra-cotta, which is a drawback. Also, the car analogy doesn’t really apply unless you coded spritecraft yourself.
     
  12. Hi Dj it’s me Gamin_dragon I think Mumbo jumbo mentions a link on his YT channel
    Hi Dj it’s me Gamin I think spritecraft is the best option!

  13. Yeah, I use Spritrcraft for quite a while now, and it helps me to work in great detail. I also use paint next to it, to cross out the blocks I already placed. Wish I had time to code, I would integrate that option into a Spritecraft-like program...
     
  14. Sorry I’m not sure then. Btw I use a cool technique to create some map art. At night frostwalker doesn’t melt so I write words in the oceans.
