Curse has an exciting announcement to make -- Minecraft texture packs that do not require any sort of patching (such as MCPatcher) are now ready for testing in the test version of the Curse Client! Please note that this is a beta version of our Client that is completely separate from our live, standard Client.
For users, this now means you can test easily installing Minecraft texture packs via one click installs, and no more shady or confusing links! Any and all texture packs that have been uploaded to Bukkit that do not require patching will be automatically available for testing! All one has to do to test out these awesome new features is download our test version of the Client! The more testers we receive, the more bugs and issues we can iron out in the process, meaning a better experience in the end product.
Even better for texture pack makers, you can not only reach a wider audience, but you can now give your users a trusted link! On top of that, any project that has over 1,000 downloads will net you free Curse Premium, which will give you an ad-free experience on all of our sites and much, much more on MinecraftForum. Just remember that currently in order for your texture pack to be supported by the test Client, it must be a 16x pack that does not need a patcher, such as MCPatcher.
Uploading to Bukkit is easy! If you require any assistance, you can refer to this handy tutorial on both how to package and upload your creations to Bukkit. If you're interested in creating texture packs but don't know where to start, check out this rather all-inclusive FAQ!
