JRE 7 x64
I run a couple servers for myself and some friends. On one of these servers we are running the "Feed the Beast" mod pack and there are a lot of textures for the various machines, pipes, etc.
I am attempting to use a 16x16 texture pack for this server which weighs in at about 14 MB (http://prenetic.com/ftb/mc14_16x_isabella_ii.zip). Since there are so many textures for the various blocks and items in this mod it actually exceeds the 10 MB limit in Minecraft and will not complete downloading. Despite this being a fully-supported 16x16 texture pack (this is NOT an HD pack as was the case with
MC-2134) it is not compatible with the "automagic" downloader due to its larger size.
I've verified the download begins in IIS and an HTTP 200 code is sent. 10 MB is not a lot to work with considering more and more mod packs are coming out which requires texture artists to pack more textures into their products.
Please at the least consider allowing server administrators to override the maximum texture pack size limit in server.properties. It's a great feature, but as-is it falls short with larger mod packs out there.
