3D Ores. Just because Minecraft ores look kind of flat.

This resource pack aims to bring a subtle 3D aspect to every single different ore variant, for 1.17.x. This is achieved through recreating the entire ore models, one by one.

Good news! This pack does NOT require Optifine or Fabric! But you may use them if you wish :)

This pack does not provide the vanilla ore textures (as I have not edited them and these are property of Mojang). If you have a texture pack that replaces these then this pack will still load but the ores may look odd.

This pack is complete but will receive updates as needed - I would love to hear back from what people think, how well or not it runs, and how it could be improved!

Does this work with shaders?
Yes. I've added sample images for how they look in Complementary and BSL.

Please leave a comment if you find issues with a shaders or a specific shader pack.

Does this lag my world out?
Technically no, unless you run a potato. The models are a lot more detailed than Minecraft originals, by an order of magnitude, so it's possible that some machines might have some lower FPS.

If you see dramatic differences in your normal world with this resource pack then please leave a comment!

Can you make this pack work for X resource pack?
Wont know till you try! Post a comment with the resource pack you use and I will attempt to create one (it must be downloadable from planetminecraft, curseforge or similar trusted site).

I will try support the most popular packs but I cannot guarantee that any/all requested will be created.

About the block models

To make this block model creation process easier and faster, behind the scenes I've created some C# tooling that takes the raw ore textures, processes them and outputs the newly created block json model - of which you can read about the process below if you are interested.

How are these models created?
I am glad you asked! This process is completely automated. The reason behind automatically doing this process is to allow in the future for processing of other texture packs automatically :)

1. Get the raw texture png files from minecraft.
2. Creates a negative image from the texture and saves it (Image gallary has example of Diamond Ore and the Negative created).
3. From the negative reads which pixels are set and creates a point map. This process is split into save and read to allow manual editing if needed for testing.
4. From the point map a height map is created, for those pixels that have 4 touching sides
5. The models are created, UV adjusted, and written to disk

Shaders are not required at all, you may use them if you usually do. There are some sample images added that show how they look with and without shaders.

Brilliant texturepack! Fits right in with the vanilla textures, but adds that little extra! Just what I was looking for!
