1AuraCraft Resurrection

Working on update - not to worry

Made especially for builders!

AuraCraft Resurrection is a forked continuation derivative of the AuraCraft RPG Recension texture pack created by Brooklyn5. You can learn more about the original AuraCraft RPG at http://www.minecraft...books-100k-dls/

This is the first texture pack I have made. I thought it was about time I joined the ranks and contributed something back into the Minecraft Community. I essentially learned from scratch, reverse engineering other works and searching for any information I could gather. Before starting AuraCraft Resurrection I knew nothing about GIMP – now I’m good enough at it. This project was also fun.

About this Texture/Resource Pack

AuraCraft RPG was created by Brooklyn5 as a dark and moody feeling RPG style texture pack. I really liked how this pack looked back then. Brooklyn5 stopped updating after Minecraft 1.2.5 and became inactive. The pack’s been dead ever since, until I brought it back.

AuraCraft Resurrection was created entirely by me (twigbang) as continuation of AuraCraft RPG. My project is based on the work began by Brooklyn5. Had he not disappeared I probably would not have created this project. So if anybody sees Brooklyn5, let me know and give him a hug. He’s been inactive for a long while now. I kept AuraCraft in the title to honor him.

Why you should use this pack?

Its up to you

I tried to make the most detailed 16x textures I could. I chose 16x because it is what Notch intended.

Also, you don’t need a state-of-the-art rig to run this. Notice I said detailed, not realistic. I didn’t want this to look like real life, I wanted something that was faithful to the Minecraft experience and I didn’t want to change the game into something else.

• If Default Minecraft reminds you of earth, AuraCraft will look like Minecraft on a different planet with a binary star and a moon that has its own moon.

• Every material is unique to its source, and items/blocks have the same visual properties as the materials they are crafted from.

• AuraCraft Resurrection has a dark and moody feel. It’s supposed to be mysterious and unsettling. I’ve implemented interactive biome palettes that dramatically affect the landscape and block colors. The fog is thick so that the viewing distance is impaired.

• Some textures are animated so now you can see the energy certain blocks and items emit.

• A advanced lightmap affects the environment and creates shadows as you explore the world.

• A night skybox shows you just how alien the AuraCraft world is, including falling stars and meteor showers.

• A day time skybox includes large dark storm clouds that randomly drift across the land.

• Custom fonts - no more ugly default letters

• There is a folder with alternate textures. If you don’t like something, exchange it!

Use MCPatcher for environmental features. MCPatcher is not necessary to run the pack, but it enhances the game play allot! I have not implemented the features to work with Optifine.


*Animated textures

*Better skies support

*Custom large random dark storm clouds

*Custom colormaps: Multi-colored water, plants, blocks and skies change with each biome

*Working realistic lightmap with built-in shading

Q and A

Why can’t I just use your textures in my own project and make it downloadable like you did, you big jerk!? Why I need your permission!!!!!!!!?

Because its an official rule now


Brooklyn5 is not around to answer questions nor defend himself. Just ask me and I will probably give you permission so that nobody can complain. I can be reasonable, even to jerks.

Where did the screenshots come from?

My private server, which soon may go public. Its called The Undiscovered Country and its amazing most of the time, sometimes

Why don’t you answer my posts?

Not answering is also a response. It could be I don’t understand you, it’s not relevant, it’s been answered before, the obvious troll is being obvious, or I simply didn’t read it

I don’t like such and such a texture, will you change it now pleazzzeeee?

No, you need better justification then that. If the rationale is good, I can change it.

Why do you call it gold? It’s Budder!!!!1111111

I swear. . . I’m so sick and tired of. . . . . . .Do you seriously want my head to explode!? I will go crazy!

gravel has always be blah to me, not sure where to take it
leaves - I wanted to be homogeneous like default so it looks like foliage without individual leaves seen
Lapis - funny to me you don't like it - its my favorite block
