Ovo’s Rustic Pack: Redemption

Some texture packs take remodeling to extreme levels. They change things around so much that you wouldn’t even recognize the game as Minecraft. Others just put up original Minecraft textures at different resolutions, or make so few alterations to the original textures they may as well not have done it at all. Rustic Pack goes for a happy medium by altering the look of the original Minecraft textures while keeping the same feel. At 64×64 resolution, Rustic Redemption looks pretty good up close, especially when it comes to the specially…

R3Dcraft Texture Pack

R3Dcraft is a simple texture pack that basically improves the look of Minecraft’s original textures. All of the original block designs are still here, but in way more detail and at a higher contrast. R3Dcraft is available in many resolutions, from 64x all the way up to 512x. The best looking block in the game by far is the bookshelf, which is rendered in high quality so that each individual book has clear, unbroken lines. The texture pack creator put a few very nice touches, like grass waving in the…

This balance is probably one of the reasons for its popularity. It also helps that the creator used clean, simple artwork that doesn’t deviate too far from vanilla Minecraft’s look and feel,…

Every single block is lovingly crafted, with loads of individual details that go beyond just a simple copy-paste tool. For instance, the icons of diamond tools like the drill and chainsaw animate to spin and whirr in your inventory (and even outside of it).…

Isabella 1.2v3 Texture Pack

The Isabella texture pack is one of those packs that’s been flying under the radar for a lot of people. Despite that, it seems to have developed a minor cult following. Looking at it closely, I can see how people might enjoy the pastel color schemes, but as far as creativity and art design go, there are other textures out there that provides a better visual and gameplay experience. The creator seems to love pastel colors. I do too, but only up to a point. The only splash of bright…
