I recently discovered that, from below y-level 128, I couldn't see any blocks above y:128. After some experimenting, I found that the cause was the 64x texture pack I was using. With any texture pack larger than 16x, I cannot see blocks above y:128. Is there any fix for this? I am using Optifine 1.4.5 HD U D3 to provide the enhancements necessary for a >16x texture pack.

note that up-down is called y (as seen in the f3 debug screen) you might wish to edit that is that is the case – ratchet freak Dec 2 '12 at 12:55
What version of Minecraft and Optifine? – SevenSidedDie Dec 2 '12 at 16:58
@ratchetfreak - Oh, right. I've been playing Dwarf Fortress too much! – SaintWacko Dec 2 '12 at 17:28
@SevenSidedDie - Minecraft 1.4.5 and Optifine 1.4.5 HD U D3 – SaintWacko Dec 2 '12 at 17:29
@SevenSidedDie - It's not an Optifine bug. Just remembered that I tried disabling optifine and I still had the same issue. I was a little tired when I made this question, and didn't think of that. – SaintWacko Dec 2 '12 at 17:38

Try updating your minecraft to the newest version and this may fix the problem.
