Removes shoulder guards of all armour chestplates and tunics, making them less bulky.

Edits the following textures:

  • Leather Tunic
  • Chainmail Chestplate
  • Iron Chestplate
  • Golden Chestplate
  • Diamond Chestplate
  • Netherite Chestplate
Alternative Version: Chestplate to Breastplate by NeraW
Changes only the item texture and subtly tweaks the model, appearing largely the same with shoulder guards.
This changes all "Chestplate" items to have "Breastplate" instead, which does not apply in this pack.

Alternative Version: Consistent Chains + No Shoulder Guards
Removes the shoulder guards of Chainmail Armour, and also recolours it to be consistent with the chain item.

"Will you make a Bedrock version?"
Soon. I currently own Minecraft Windows 10 Edition, which is the Bedrock version of Minecraft for desktop. Once I create and test my pack in Bedrock, I will edit this section to feature a Bedrock version of this resource pack as a download link.

As I am able to create my own Bedrock resource packs in the future, I no longer allow others to adapt my pack to Bedrock Edition and upload them. Unofficial Bedrock ports of my resource packs are under the subject of "Full Terms and Conditions of Use".

"Will you create different resolutions for this resource pack, such as x32 or x64?"
No. I have no plans to change my resource pack's resolution to fit x8, x32, x64, etc. It will remain as x16. If you wish to adapt this resource pack to a different resolution, feel free to do so as long it follows and abides by the "Full Terms and Conditions of Use" tab.

you should do the opposite, make the chestplate only the shoulder guards/shoulder pads and rename it to [​Material] Shoulder Pad/Shoulder Guard
