||My name is Jolicoeur, so I called it Jolicraft. It's pronounced "Jolly Craft" by the way. My name means "Happy Heart", so I guess Jolicraft means "Happy Craft". So maybe I should have called it HappyCraft, because I'm generally quite happy. But I'm not always happy. Sometimes I run out of wine. Sometimes there's no hot water for my bath. Sometimes when I'm changing my son's diaper, he pees on me.
Minecraft is a game about crafting the world around you. What better way to craft the world than to craft the very stuff the world is made of? I had a great time creating Jolicraft, it's so addictive to create textures and see them live in your own world. I didn't really intend to push the pack as far as I did, but damn this shit is addictive. It's as addictive as Minecraft itself, which is saying alot.
This is Minecraft people. As with life, don't take it too seriously. A good plentiful helping of Jolicraft will wash the dust away from your dreary world.

|Why did you make this 16x16? Wouldn't it be awesomer if it was 32x32 or 128x128 or 1080x1080?
I love 16p texture packs. It seems the perfect resolution to match the style of Minecraft. The purposefully crude low-res pixel crafting nature of the game was simply made for 16x16 textures, anything more just feels weird - like drinking red wine while eating hotdogs. Which Notch does every morning at the breakfast table. Pixels are beautiful my friend, and in a grid of 16x16 they're damn near perfection.
Can you please add more sidegrass?
Let me explain why this is almost no sidegrass on Jolicraft dirt. I like sidegrass in many texture packs. Sometimes it works and looks great for the type of grass & dirt they've created. But Jolicraft dirt is different. It's firm and scoopable. The grass is a thin layer on top of the dirt, so more sidegrass makes no sense as it either makes the grass layer feel thicker than I want or it makes the thin grass all droopy. Think of my dirt like cake with icing on top, so when you scoop through it the grass doesn't instantly hang down the side, it stays firm. And the grass overhangs just a tiny bit to cast a slight shadow down the side of the dirt. It's that crisp edge that makes Jolicraft dirt different from other dirt. It's not that I'm against sidegrass in general, just sidegrass in Jolicraft.
I asked you to change a texture and you didn't. What gives?
I'm sorry. You had good intentions in suggesting a change, but I didn't care for it. Don't be angry! I don't care for lots of stuff that other people like. And I care for lots of things that other folk don't like. And I'm neutral to things that many people aren't neutral to. What a world! Does that answer your question?
Why don't you use ad.fly to make money off Jolicraft?
I've been asked this many times. I just don't want to. Jolicraft is just a personal project for me, it's my pleasure to make textures, to make them available for everyone, and have fun doing it. All I ask is that you keep a place for Jolicraft in your heart, and spread the news.
I'm making my own pack or map, and I want to use a texture from your pack. Can I?
I get lots of requests from folks asking if they can use specific textures in their packs and maps. I don't mind if you use any of my textures, help yourself and enjoy! But I just ask that if you do use something I've made that you state somewhere in your thread what you used of mine, and include a link to jolicraft.com or my thread via the Jolicraft logo (http://www.jolicraft.com/images/logo.png). And I STRONGLY encourage you to not rely on anything I've made. Making a few textures doesn't take long. It's much more satisfying to create something original than to rely on someone else's creations. Wouldn't you agree?
What's wrong with you?
Once when I was young I pushed a toothpick into my ear and it went all the way in and didn't come out. I've not been quite right since then.
I spend lots of time in the Jolicraft thread at minecraftforum.net. There's lots of fun stuff going on all the time, like contests, sneak peaks, and random craziness. Stop by and say "Hi", or "I love Jolicraft", or "Hey, I'm your long lost twin brother" (if applicable).
