Programmer Art Preserved is a small addon for Programmer Art to keep textures up to date with newer version of the game. Since Mojang seems to have forgotten about Programmer Art I decided to fix it myself.

So, what does Programmer Art Preserved currently do?

+ Fixes the inconsistencies between Stone and Deepslate Ore blocks.

+ Updates the Copper Ore texture to use the original Stone texture and a earlier snapshot style of Copper Ore to better fit the classic look of Minecraft.

+ Blends Nylium and Nether Gold Ore with the old Netherrack texture.

+ Brings back the old Gravel texture replaced all the way back in version 1.3 to keep the block style looking more consistent, Especially in the Nether.

+ Zombie Villagers have had their missing arms and texture bug on their heads fixed.
The issue was the old Zombie Villagers all used a generic green apron texture that was conflicting with the new clothing textures. This apron was removed from their texture but it was given to the Zombie Nitwit so it wasn't just removed from the game entirely.

+ Brings back the original Minecraft Logo, Panoramic Background, and Splashes.

[​Known issues]

The Panoramic Background is currently missing the blur effect due to 1.13 removing it. This can not be fixed with a resource pack as blurring the images in the texture would cause the blur effect to be very uneven.

Villagers for some reason have the unused green hood texture. This is currently a issue with Programmer Art and not the Addon.

[Last Updated for Snapshot 21w10a]

Since 1.17 is still in snapshot form some of these textures could be subject to change, the pack is currently at 95% complete instead of 100%.

Really the only issue I can see would be if they change Deepslate / Grimstone again but that would be a easy fix and I'll do my best to keep this pack up to date for the full 1.17 release.

BY THE WAY PLANET MINECRAFT!!! I am a Youtuber with a following that knows I have been working on this and I'm going to tell them it's available. PLEASE do not ban me AGAIN for my viewers supposedly being bots.

Thank you.

Oh yeah and since this is a addon and not it's own full texture pack it goes ABOVE Programmer Art on the list. Just for anyone who didn't already know. :)

Could you make the villagers look like the old villagers?

The main problem with that would be that there used to only be 6 villager types and now there are 15.

It makes me very annoyed that they don't update the old textures! (but it is understandable why they don't). so THANK YOU!!

how are you getting the original textures for Minecraft?

Well almost all of the textures I needed were in Programmer Art already which just uses 1.12.2 textures.

The Nylium is just the new Netherrack texture under it being replaced with the old one.

The Gravel was taken from version 1.2

The Copper Ore was the texture from the first snapshot but with the new stone texture replaced with the old.

And the menu background and splashes are the files for the background taken directly from 1.7 - 1.12.2

The Zombie Villagers did require some tweaking though. They have the old skin but new clothes and the original apron for Zombie Villagers was given to the Zombie Nitwit so it didn't just go to waste.

It's quite simple. Just locate your .jar file for Minecraft and view the contents of it.

Could you create a texture pack that only preserves the old ore patterns while keeping the background of the new textures? Thanks!

There's a pack called Programmer art + that does this kind of thing, but not just Netherack. It fixes every new block and makes them fit in with the programmer art textures.

But until 1.17 comes out, what else is even broken with Programmer Art aside from the Nether Textures?

NVM. I just found a Zombie Villager texture bug. I also went ahead and prepared the pack for the 1.17 update.
