This resource pack requires the latest OptiFine version. 1.16 & 1.15
OptiFine 1.6.4 HD U G6 pre1
Optifine 1.6 has a bug that makes resourcepack loading times extremely long, especially when launching the game. Your game didn't crash, just wait and it will eventually work!


OptiFine 1.5.2 HD U G5


For this pack to work properly, these OptiFine options must be ON: Custom Entity Models and Random Entities, which are both on the Quality menu inside Video Settings.



It always bugged me how every single creature was always the same. With this pack i just wanted to add variation to Minecraft, to make it more natural.

Now all mobs have variations, ones more than others. Things that can variate are colors and textures and models. Some entity models are changed to assist on randomization, like zombies having separate models for clothing and skins so i don't have to make a texture for every combination of clothes and skin tones. Some creature have blinking animations, but not all of them yet. Textures usually are different based on biomes and height (so it won't work properly on flat worlds).

Remember to come back from time to time so you can have the latest version!


NAMING

PETS

These are a list of named variants that change pet collars to create differente kind of clothing, they are dyeable. They work using symbols, so you just have to copy and paste them in a nametag next to your pet's name.
You can use a symbol more than once, but you shouldn't mix name symbols with each other.

--> MORE PICS! <--


3D VERSION AND OTHER OPTIONS:
The 3D Version adds models that are just for looks and don't affect randomization.
Changes
- Pigs have a tail that pop out a little bit
- Chickens have 3D legs
- Skeletons, Whither Skeletons and Strays have 3D bones


There's a file called OPTIONS inside the .zip. It gives instructions on how to customize the resourcepack if there's a feature that you REALLY don't want. I don't recommend changing anything because you would have to do it every time I release a new update, but the option is there.
Options
- PIGMAN OVER PIGLINS
This will replace Piglins with Pigmans, this includes the Piglin, Piglin Brute, Zombie Piglin and Piglin Skeleton.

- GET RID OF PIG EARS
This will get rid of the ears in Pigs and Pigmans inspired in the Piglins.

- NO PIGLIN/PIGMAN SKELETONS IN THE NETHER
This will get rid of the Piglin/Pigman variants of skeletons in The Nether.

- NO PIXEL PERFECT GHASTS
This will bring back the old Ghast texture (with no face variants).

I looked through the entity files and I noticed there are armor stand variants, do you get those variants by making it out of that wood type or by re-naming?



Also I noticed there is a Ice Cream Snow golem, what do you have to re name a snow golem to to get this texture?



Thanks!

You replied to my comment on Phantom's logical arrows. My comment got deleted for whatever reason, so I'll respond to you here.

I can't believe so many people didn't know I was joking. I was trying to make it obvious I was joking, because the creator of this pack and I shared a similar username.

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that your texture pack causes graphical glitches on Xaero's minimap mod.

With cv loaded certain mobs icons on the map become either purple or black or both, the worst are zombies which are just huge black or purple blocks, I can share screenshots of my glitch if it helps.

I tried reaching out to a modding Minecraft discord but they left me on read after seeing I'm using a texture mod, so I'm hoping someone here can help me fix it somehow?

There are download mirrors linked in the description leading to Mediafire or Google Drive but I also I would personally recommend downloading an ad-blocking browser extension. The one I use is AdGuard on Google Chrome, you can set it to automatically block ads on every single site you visit for the first time or set it so you manually have to turn it on when visiting new websites. It is the best thing to block ad.fly I've found.

The Jeb_ seems intentional, but I know how to fix the baby villager's eyes, if you're looking to fix them yourself.

First, in the pack file, go to assets/minecraft/optifine/random/entity/villager and open villager_eyes.properties with a basic text editor. Next, on lines 4 and 5 add a # at the beginning.
The text should look like this:
#skins.1=1
#baby.1=true

(you could do something similar in villager_eyebrows.properties if you want the babies to have eyebrows too)

Obviously those lines of text were put there for some reason, so its possible this might make something somewhere look off, but it works fine for me. Hope this helps!

I absolutely love it, especially that despite having SO many textures, it still feels vanilla.



One problem though; the endermen eyes seem to be the same purple no matter the location. I tried playing with the values in the endermen_eyes file but got nothing. It could easily be something I'm unaware of on my end, but who knows.
