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.

Also, No Optifine Required! This pack works on every unmodded version from 1.14 to 1.20!

So, what does Programmer Art Preserved currently do?

+ Fixes wrong textures loading due to name changes.

+ 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.

+ 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.

+ Fixes Programmer Art Villagers so they do not all have the unused Green Hood.
The Green Hood has now been added to the Nitwit's Clothes.

+ Brings back the original Panoramic Background, and Splashes.

+ Fixes Horse Armor being broken from the Model change in 1.13

+ Makes buckets consistent when holding creatures and powdered snow.

+ Fixes original textures of Fish not showing up due to name changes.

+ Color Matches Cod & Puffer Fish to original item textures.

+ Fixed Chest Boats and Chest Boat Items using the new boat texture instead of Programmer Art's texture.

+ Texture matches Mangrove & Cherry Boats to Programmer Art's Style.

+ Changes Mangrove & Cherry Planks and Log Tops to match Programmer Art for consistency.

+ Adds Programmer Art textures for all stages of Suspicious Gravel & Suspicious Sand.

+ Zombified Piglins have had their texture changed to that of the original Zombie Pigmen! The texture is the original with some minor alterations to get it to fit on the new Piglin model. Any alterations were pixel and color matched to be as close as possible to the original. It even has the THX XAPHOBIA text hidden in the texture again!

This also indirectly fixes the broken orientation of Piglin's left leg texture.

(Note: It is possible to remove the tusks, snout, and ear but it looks very awkward with the wider head and lack of 3D head layer. So I decided to keep the creature a Piglin but any new parts are color and style matched to the original skin.)

[​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.

Vexes use the new texture in 1.19.3+ for now. Changing this texture would make the pack incompatible with older versions.

The Title Logo is not the Programmer Art version in 1.20+ due to a reformating of the logo textures making a potential fix incompatible with older versions.

[Last Updated for 1.20.1]

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. :)

Update #16 - Big Update + Cyan Rose Returns! : by AceOcarinas 10/10/2023 3:18:40 amOct 10th, 2023

This update changes a lot! This update's goals are to bring back even more nostalgic textures, make even more blocks variations consistent with each other, and to attempt to make Modern Minecraft look generally less blurry.

I usually try to leave the new textures alone when I can but some of them looked genuinely bad next to Programmer Art's sharp and clean textures.

The issue with co-existing with some of these new textures aside from general inconsistencies, isn't just that the new textures are more detailed. Half of them actually use less colors in their textures then Programmer Art versions! The main problem has been that the contrast in the new textures is simply too low. It makes the image look muddy instead of sharp despite being the same resolution.

So I figured it would just look better overall if more textures were replaced with Programmer Art styled versions or just older versions of the textures where I can.

As for the names changes and the Cyan Rose replacement, That's for pure nostalgia sake. lol

Plus, I don't feel like the Pitcher Pod looks like it even belongs in Minecraft in the first place. It's a good texture don't get me wrong, but it looks like it belongs to a totally different game. And if it is just a flower that makes Cyan Dye, I figured why not replace it with an actual ancient and extinct Cyan Minecraft Flower.

This was a feature in Pocket Edition for those who don't remember. ...Well, "feature" is a bit generous. It was more of a consequence of mobile limitations, BUT it's still Nostalgic!

The bottom of the Pitcher Pod could not be removed from it's grow cycle without a whole model change. So, The Cyan Rose now has to grow on a tiny piece of Pocket Edition's Grass! One it fully grows into a full bush you can always harvest it and replant it anywhere of course!

Sadly the single rose can't be harvested on it's own due to how the Pitcher Pod works, but maybe someday if they add more sniffer flowers that don't quite fit the game.

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy this pretty big update!

Change Log:

+ Changed and renamed the Pitcher Plant to the Cyan Rose Bush.

+ Pitcher Pod is now called the Ancient Seed Pod.

+ Updated the Mangrove and Cherry Logs to match Programmer Art.

+ Updated Azalea Leaves to Programmer Art's leaf style.

+ Added subtle brightness changes to other Programmer Art leaves
to better differentiate between them when building.

+ Changed texture of the Copper Ingot to match the other Ingots.

+ Updated the texture of Block of Raw Iron, Block of Raw Copper, and Block of Raw Gold

+ Change the Texture of held items: Raw Copper and Raw Gold to a older version.

+ Changed all Deepslate to the old Grimstone textures.

+ Renamed all Deepslate to Grimstone

+ Added new textures for the blocks missing from Grimstone.

+ Renamed Zombified Piglin to Zombie Pigman

For some reason on 1.15 I don't see any changes to the textures. I have the texture pack enabled, I disabled Optifine, and I put this pack on top of the original texture pack. I don't know what's wrong, and I can't find anymore 1.15 texture packs where it's just programmer art but it fits with the new textures (like the beehives) of 1.15.

the crimson and warped planks doesn't have the old planks texture is that intentional or did you forget

That is intentional. I did the missing overworld planks in Programmer Art's style but I figure planks from another dimension made of something that isn't technically wood, could get away with keeping the new texture as they probably should look different.
