Be sure to watch the trailer to see all the tools in action!

Customize your toolset with the Grimdark Tools Resource Pack!

Customize your toolset by using Optifine to retexture the defaults using any combination of over 250 unique textures. This pack is a fresh take on the traditional Minecraft textures. Drawing inspiration from other dark fantasy worlds, it provides textures with more detail that will look great in your medieval worlds while maintaining play-ability. This pack contains 'just the tools' and item textures which makes it easy to pair with a builder's pack of your choosing or to simply enhance your toolbar while building with the vanilla block textures.

If you just want tool, weapon, and item textures, this is the pack for you. However, if you like this pack I would encourage you to complete the set with my GRIMDARK ARMOR, or grab all my textures in the GRIMDARK BATTLEPACK, which includes not only the armor textures and variants but also custom textures for crafting tables, torches, lanterns, chains, stained glass, sun, moon, skies and more!

If you'd like to make my new Samurai themed textures the default you can pair this pack with my GRIMDARK SAMURAI pack.

This pack includes variants for each of the major tools in Minecraft (Optifine Required). These variant textures are accessible by renaming your tools and weapons at an anvil. For example, renaming your Diamond Sword to include "katana" anywhere in the name will change the texture to the katana variant, etc. Any naming conventions that do not include a variant identifier will use the standard texture.

Everything you need to know about the latest update:

Everything you may have missed in the second-to-last update:

Q: Can I use this pack as a server resource pack for my server?
A: If you are running a small private server, Yes! I only ask that you not re-upload my textures elsewhere or redistribute them. Permission for public servers is granted to all active Grimdark Patrons.

Q: How do I get the variant textures?
A: Take the appropriate item to an anvil and rename it using the keyword specified above.

Q: The variant textures aren't working - how do I fix it?
A: Variant textures require you to play using Optifine with custom items enabled. Other mods/loaders *might* work, but they are not officially supported. If variants aren't working, double check your Optifine settings and disable other addons that might be causing conflicts.

Q: When is this pack / texture / feature coming to Bedrock?
A: IF it's possible, as soon as I can. Even though Bedrock and Java look similar at surface level they are VERY different. Just because something is created for one doesn't mean it is supported in the other. Similarly, some things are easy to do in Java that are extremely difficult to do in Bedrock. This means some features may never make it to Bedrock.

Q: Can you add X texture / feature?
A: Please submit all suggestions and requests via DM on Patreon.

Q: Can I redistribute the Grimdark textures in another pack/mod?

A: No.

*Please note all screenshots and video were taken using the Grimdark Battlepack & Grimdark Sky pack. This pack is 100% compatible with my other packs, so please mix and match as you see fit!

You'll need to use Optifine with custom items enabled.

Optifine is required for the variants. If you're using Optifine already, make sure you have custom items enabled in the settings.

Sorry for bothering with this, but I'm here asking for your permission
I'm making an addon with armors and tools (copper, emerald and amethyst) pretty much like fortify but simpler (so a potato can handle them)
And I love your textures a lot. So much I'd love to use them in my addon. Honestly I don't want to monetize or anything like that. In fact it's My first addon lol. But I'd like to include your textures (for the custom and also the canilla tools) into subpacks, one with and one without (so the textures Matches haha)
I'd credit You on whatever page I upload it (mcpedl and here I suppose)

Hey there - thanks for asking but that doesn't sound like a meaningfully different project. Fortify is very similar to what I've done for Bedrock. I just haven't gotten around to adding the rest of my variants but I already have a companion Behavior pack and subpacks and all that. Copper and Emerald are both on the list to add as well.

All that being said, I'd encourage you to create some new textures altogether! No reason to borrow mine when I'm sure you can come up with something unique and interesting!
