I've been playing Minecraft with a texture mod lately - I like it over "classic" minecraft on many levels, but I find there's still aspects of it that bug me, like this:

enter image description here

The sprouts of melon seeds are invisible. (Here's a comparison with the default textures) enter image description here

Where, exactly, are the various stages of melon growth stored? Or, if there's not multiple textures for melon sprouts, how does Minecraft go from the seed-like stage to the fully grown texture? Is it just a matter of making the melon sprout textures taller?

Modded MC? Isn't that off topic? Anyway, it's not my problem. – Rudolf L. Jelínek Apr 10 at 12:12
@Rudolf Libel nodded Minecraft does immediately seen a question off topic. Only technical support is considered off topic – Timelord64 Apr 10 at 14:35

According to the wiki, the texture is offset underground then extended up as the melon (or pumpkin) stem grows. It's just a matter of making sure the stem texture is tall enough.

Excellent! Your link pointed to Pumpkins, but melons were directly below that on the page, so it worked out all right in the end. – Raven Dreamer Oct 4 '11 at 22:22
