Level 77 : Legendary Blockhead
for Minecraft 1.8 (and 1.9 snapshots)
Thanks to Ergg and Wemja for their texture contributions. My life has been very busy lately, and their help makes it possible to keep updating the pack. I also want to thank Neowolf for the help he has given me in the past.
If you have suggestions, you can use this form that wemja put together.
Now Available, in Paper Cut-Out style...
- Werewolf Engineer/Miner
- Paper Bard
** To use this pack with Minecraft 1.5 or earlier, you must first download Paper Cut-Out version 1.52.
** To use this pack with Minecraft 1.3 or earlier, delete the files "mob/zombie.png", "mob/pigzombie.png", "mob/wolf_tame.png", "armor/cloth_1.png", and "armor/cloth_2.png" from the texture pack zip file. You can replace them with copies from Paper Cut-Out 1.24 or earlier if you want.
** To use this pack with Minecraft 1.2.5 or earlier, delete the file "gui/allitems.png" from the texture pack zip file and optionally rename "gui/allitems-1.2.5.png" to "gui/allitems.png".
Many people have made paper cut-outs that look like objects from Minecraft, but now you can reverse that and make Minecraft look like paper cut-outs! This pack uses shading to make the textures look like cut, folded, and overlapping paper. In addition to these 3D effects, the textures also have just a little papery roughness, but not so much as to be "noisy".
.. CUSTOMIZE IT! ..
Want the original square ore designs from the early days of Paper Cut-Out? You got it! Want all the wool to have the same pattern? You're in control! You can change these textures and more by downloading add-on packs below. Just download the add-on packs you want in addition to the main Paper Cut-Out pack. After placing them all in Minecraft's "resourcepacks" folder, go to the resource pack screen in Minecraft and put your preferred add-on packs above the main Paper Cut-Out pack in the Selected Resource Packs list.
Alternate Texture Add-On Packs:
- Standard Status Icons : status effect icons that are closer to the Minecraft defaults.
- Square Ores : the square ore designs from the first versions of Paper Cut-Out.
- Frameless Resource Blocks : iron/diamond/etc blocks that have no frame around the edge.
- Brickless Metals : gold and iron blocks without the "brick" pattern.
- Flat Dirt : dirt and stone textures that are flat except for just a little papery roughness.
- Traditional Items : item icons with a more traditional icon style.
- Wool - All Diamond : every color of wool has the diamond pattern.
- Wool - All Stripe : every color of wool has the stripe pattern.
- Wool - All Weave : every color of wool has the weave pattern.

I occasionally have polls to decide what texture designs to use in Paper Cut-Out. These help me choose what should be in the main pack, and the alternate texture designs are generally available as add-on packs (see above).
.. VOTE FOR STATUS ICONS ..
I've customized all the status effect icons, and you have your choice of two styles...
Simplified icons to make it easier to see your buffs and debuffs at a glance. Buffs are aqua in color. Debuffs are violet.
Very similar to the default Minecraft icons but with a paper cut-out style.
Vote for your favorite in the comments!
.. Simple: 32 votes .. .. Standard: 27 votes ..
To use the "simple" icons, open the texture pack zip file, go to the folder "assets/minecraft/textures/gui/container" and rename "alt-inventory-simple.png" to "inventory.png".
.. VOTE FOR TERRAIN ..
I'm trying out some new terrain textures. My first attempt was Terrain2 below. It felt a little off, so I refined it to get Terrain3, which is a balance between Terrain2 and the original Terrain1. Terrain3 keeps the grass from Terrain1 and uses a reduced-contrast version of the stone from Terrain2. In the most recent update I also changed the dirt for Terrain3 to a subtle weave pattern that's a little different from my previous update. Here's what all three look like...
Terrain 1 (click for full image)
Terrain 2 (click for full image)
Terrain 3 (click for full image)
I'm holding a vote to help decide which should be the default. Share your preference in the comments.
Voting Results: .. Terrain1: 5 votes .. .. Terrain2: 3 votes .. .. Terrain3: 11 votes ..
.. NEW ICONS ..
After having a public vote, I made the 'paper-style icons' the default for this pack, but you can still get the 'traditional icons' by following these instructions...
To use the traditional icons open the texture pack zip file, delete "gui/items.png" and rename "gui/items-traditional.png" to "gui/items.png". Or if you want to mix-and-match, be sure to check out the customizer.
Icon Voting Results: .. Traditional: 32 votes .. .. PaperStyle: 49 votes ..
.. NEW ORES ..
After having a public vote, I made the 'new ores' the default for this pack, but you can still get the 'square ores' by following these instructions...
To use the original "square" ore textures, open the texture pack zip file, delete "terrain.png" and rename "terrain-square-ores.png" to "terrain.png". Or if you want to mix-and-match, be sure to check out the customizer.
You can see a comparison between the two kinds of ores in the screenshot gallery.
Ore Voting Results: .. SquareOres: 29 votes .. .. NewOres: 87 votes ..

- In addition to Paper Cut-Out's default textures, the textures in the "alt" folders also work with 1.6.1 (see readme.txt in the zip file).
- Minecraft 1.6.1 has issues with hi-res fonts, so until Minecraft 1.6.2 is released, Paper Cut-Out is using a standard resolution font.
- Many of the new 1.6.1 textures are not yet customized. I will be doing that next.
Pigs, Mystical Icons : 06/09/2013 10:29:16 am6/09/13
