Webhallen is a really awesome Swedish hardware/game store that I use privately a lot. The guys running it seems to like Minecraft, and asked us if we could do a competition together, so we did!

Minecraft will very soon feature official texture pack replacement support, and the competition is to make the most awesome texture pack possible for Minecraft!

Check it out here!

First prize is a 180 GB SSD signed by notch (yes, on the actual drive!) and an original painting by Kristoffer Zetterstrand, who made all the paintings in the game. The new painting will be added to the game, but you get to own the original.

The official texture pack support is coming soon. It was supposed to be part of the halloween update, but I kind of forgot.. In the meanwhile, PC Gamer wrote an excellent guide on how to install texture packs until this new support is added

The competition runs until December 20, and is available to anyone who can receive UPS deliveries.

W00T only if I could get 1st prize! 180 gigs is actually smaller than my current master, but it'd make a wonderful replacement for my 80gig :D and signed by notch, WOW i wonder how much it'd make on ebay ;)

depends on the person, sell it to a normal person, you sell for original price as if the signature wasn't there, sell it to a Minecraft fan and you can add 60 bucks to the price.

Wow! This sounds awesome! I've never really stepped into making modifications before but have always wanted to, a chance for a good try with this simplistic and fun game =)
Now for some inspiration and a theme...

I unfortunately don't have a great aptitude for texture design, but I can't wait to see all the great texture packs that result from this!

In my opinion texture packs are ugly as hell (no offense authors), but I like that Notch includes official support for them. That means Notch will probably add gameplay mods after that!

I agree way over half the texture packs I see are ugly and I have no clue why people would want to use them
But there is a few out there that are AMAZING
