NephCOLaboratoriesundefined
NephCOLaboratories brings you the latest scientific textures for your Minecraft gameplay. Add that Biological Laboratory feeling to every aspect of your Minecraft experience. There are animated textures that entertain me. Some specialized textures are also included for my favorite mod add on, the Hampster Mod. Explore the crafting and building features of the game with an eye to the scientific. I am attempting to alter all images in the game, and I want to present those I have already created. The textures are made from photographs and original drawings and paintings. It also includes some of my oil paintings featuring fish. As I complete this resource pack I hope to customize the sounds and GUI also. I am calling this a Beta because I use it every time I play.

Please use my adf.ly mirror link to download the latest version, it will help support the creation of this resource pack! The link is now up to date as of 3/16/2017 for NephCOLaboratories v1.6.6 adjusted for Minecraft 1.11.2.

New Textures Added! Charcoal, coal, flint, striker (flint &n Steel), pufferfish (version 1), and a special fly-fishing rod have been added. The special fly-fishing rod is from my good friend Clint Bova of MAD RIVER ROD CO., maker of fine hand split bamboo fly rods. He works out of Columbus, Ohio, http://www.cjbovarods.com/. I tried to capture the look of his fly rod in Minecraft. I used a higher resolution to enhance the quality and detail. The uncast fishing pole shows his Spring Midge fly. I also added some silly phrases to the start up text list. One of them is from Neil Degrasse Tyson. Watch for more science. I think I will make a Neil Degrasse Tyson skin!

Update #1 : 07/15/2014 9:09:11 am7/15/14

I don't seem to be able to re-upload my texture pack zip file. I deleted the old file and cannot upload the latest file. I think it was because it was in the evaluation process.

Since my (recent) discovery of Minecraft, I have downloaded a multitude of texture packs, trying to fill three "categories": Default style, low-tone unique and uber unique. After much searching, I found the first two, but didn't have to look any further than NephCOLaboratories for an innovative "uber unique" texture pack that was excellently done. It is fun to see your version of things in the MC world, and I appreciate the attention to detail.

Oh, and I would *love* a Neil Degrasse Tyson skin! A definite download for me (I imagine a few people will wonder who that is, though, lol). Thank you - and your son - very much for this very uber-unique texture pack. Nicely done.

Thank you for your kind comments! I made this pack to make Minecraft my world the way I want to see it. I also wanted to make sure it would run on most systems no matter how humble. I also love Science and worked in a biological laboratory for a while and love all the cool tech and comradery found in a biology lab.

I uploaded my Neil Degrasse Tyson skin at least a year ago, I hope you get a chance to check it out.
//www.planetminecraft.com/skin/neil-degrasse-tyson/

I really did want it to be unique. My son helped keep my ideas reigned in. For instance, I originally had the creeper design without eyelids. My son found it terrifying. LOL So I relented and gave them a slightly sleepy look instead.

I am working on it again, Minecraft keeps changing and I want to keep up. There are not only so many mobs to skin but new features of customization I want to take advantage of. I still need to get my husband to do the villager voices for me. I want a low male voice for the villagers instead of my lady's voice.

Thanks again for enjoying my resource pack, I hope I can surprise you with my improvements and expansions in the future.

My son and I got involved in student robotics and it took over our lives. I was also sick in 2015-6 with a bad infection that really didn't let me work on things I wanted to. Thanks for your interest. I really do want to finish this resource pack. I need to get my husband to give me some better villager voices though. The ones I made are a bit janky.
Oh, belated congrats on your son!

i have a question.Why is the diamond sword looks like aahh somethin' ... you know, quite different or out of place because for me it looks like a kids fantasy sword but the whole resource pack is actually great, keep up the good work and do what you are suppose to do, good day :)

Good question! My son designed the sword when he was a bit younger. I made it to his specifications. I think it might be time to upgrade it. I would like it to fit better with the style of my textures. Thanks for reminding me to change it!

*Update* I have updated the resource pack and both the older PMC download zip and my Up-To-Date v 1.6.1 mirror Adfly download zip should be working fine.
I am soo happy with this update!You have been working really hard on this and I just wanna thank you still my number one resource pack.....still can't find anything to compete with this.

I hope your chicken pox are only a memory. I really like your enthusiasm, I am keeping an eye on your videos. I have a huge update coming out within a couple days, maybe today. I hope you can make another video review of it sometime. I would love your input on the new items and changes. Please note the animation on the glowstone. This design of glowstone makes really good suspended ceiling lights like in an office buildings. I still need to do the lava and enemy mobs. :^P I have a short attention span sometimes and get all into the details of every item. Thanks for your help! I still need to link you from my main homepage, I want to connect to your vids from everywhere.
Might use this for a laboratory thing in Creative. Cool looking textures, definitely going to download and use for projects.

Sounds awesome! I like how the clouds are made to look like H2O molecules, as well. x3

Funny you should mention that. My husband is a software developer and I have done some programming. He and I are working on making mods. I want to put together something that creates a microscope in Minecraft. We are still learning how to control the editable parts of Minecraft and make them do what we want. I will eventually put the mod up with my texture pack. This is all done in our spare time, so the time frame is a bit loose. I will keep honing this texture pack to make it as fun and useful as possible.

Thanks for noticing. I am trying to keep the size down so everyone can use it. Some of the textures do go up to 64 or 128, like my new C4 that I just made. But, hopefully I can keep all the images at 32. I don't want to slow down everybody's games with a bulky texture pack.

Thanks so much, you are too nice. I am having trouble not making all the textures 512x512. I really want them to look cool. I like the challenge of trying to make a few pixels have the impression of realism. I used pictures of plants in my yard to make some of the plants, potatoes, oak sapling, oak bark, etc. Thanks again for following my progress. If you see anything that is a problem, please let me know!
