Hey there! A new mod has been made, and it's called Ersatz Materials. It's an aesthetics mod for minecrfat 1.9.4. That's right, a mod for 1.9.4 that my friends and I are working on. I know I've been doing 1.7.10 stuff, but I felt like diving into 1.9.4.
Anyway, since all 3 of us are working on it more, unlike the IDT mod which is really just me doing it, this mod was uploaded by the name of TeamXendirc.
Here's the link to download: http://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/ersatz-materials
This mod is also open source! Which I don't really do, but this one is. :D
p.s. Since this is an early alpha version, there are issues and bugs. Use the tracker if there's a major problem.
