|1.8||14w25a||The block and item texture atlases have been combined into a single texture atlas (likely due to both being changed to use models) with four mipmap variations, as a result removing the blocks-atlas and items-atlas used prior to this version.|
textures_0.png and four mipmap variants textures_<1-4>.png, are now generated by the game.
|These files are also output in .minecraft .|
Changed textures_<0-4>.png. (Due to the only changed texture being a rotation, the textures_4.png generated is identical to 14w25b's.)
