    As the title says.Just curious if there is a way for users to enable larger texture sizes in game?
    e.g 512 and higher?

    I myself would be happy with 512. I think I have some play room as I am getting pretty insane frame rates with my new GPU in the game even with everything cranked right up. (As long as v-syncs disabled that is of course.)
    256 is nice, but still a bit too pixellated for me.

    Been working on some of my own custom textures trying to get more realistic looking results than is currently available, but even 256 doesn't do them justice I feel.

    pre 0.09 (around that time) you could run higher - however when texture pack selection was implemented, this supports was dropped.

    Have you:
    • disabled texture compression (launcher advanced options)
    • enabled "linear mag filter" for blocks (in-game graphics options)
    These make a very nice difference in the quality of texture rendering, to the point that I haven't though about higher resolutions (independent of the amount of work it would take to create them).
