A pastel color texture pack for Minecraft!

The main inspiration being the lack of full pastel packs for minecraft. This one also gives new designs and tries to keep it as simple as possible, no complicated textures but not single color blocks either.

The focus is keeping it as colorful as possible without affecting the general visual design of the world. This is for easy identification of the world without double thinking the blocks functionality.

Made using Aseprite and Blockbench everything done by hand with a tablet.


In the Zip, you will find the the main releases, 1.18.2 (1.12.2 can be obtained in CurseForge)

As always, drop the main ZIP (Pastelcraft 1.17.1.zip / Pastelcraft 1.12.2.zip) into your Resourcepacks folder, should be like this:


*Now you can just drop the ZIP of your version's preference into the RESOURCEPACKS folder


Being an .MCPACK just double click it and it should install it automatically

If you are playing on Pocket edition, try looking at this guide:
*Alternatively, search up online. I used both this method and simply "opening it" on mobile and it worked.

The road map is all done! Pastelcraft is available in the 3 mayor releases of minecraft and the Bedrock store too!

*Anything that can make the colors look a bit "muted" and clear shadows look nice, but anything is at your own choice

Q: Why the menus on Bedrock are different from Java?
A: Bedrock handles menus a lot different than Java. Whereas Java has each menu as an unique image, Bedrock uses a general base menu texture for all their menus. (Explained further on this tweet )

Q: Why I can still see the default UI on some places?
A: You may need to restart Minecraft in order for the UI to load fully. Make sure The pastel pack is on top of the default Minecraft assets before you restart your game.

Q: Will Bedrock ever have the same menus as Java?
A: I do think it's possible, however this requires a lot more research on my end. But the new UI looks nice on its own!

Q: Bedrock is missing X thing.
A: I may or may not be aware of it. Some things only require simple workarounds, others not. Will update in due fashion, but please consider commenting on what's missing!

Q: What's the difference between the free release and the Minecraft Store release?
A: Virtually nothing! You can keep enjoying Pastelcraft for free! The only differences are:
  - You can play on your consoles (Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo) and mobiles devices with ease.
  - You support me and my partners at Square Dreams to keep working on this pack!
  - The MC Store requires verifications per update, so newer versions should be available here first.

Q: What is the Bedrock page?
A: Here: The Pastel Pack on the Minecraft Store

Q: Why is only one version in the zip file?
A: Adding the panorama to the menu takes up more MBs than what Planet minecraft allows. You can find the 1.12.2 most recent release at CurseForge.

Since the 1.18 update didn't add any new blocks or graphics, the pack works fine with the 1.17 version.

However, I'm working on some texture to do a proper 1.18 release. Nothing mayor but decided to take the time to make it at least worth the difference.

You mean on the main menu? No, never saw it as necessary, little time is spent there so I didn't bother.

I am having serious texture pack overload. How many worlds should I create, or should I change on the fly????? So many decisions. I love this pack, as of today it has made it to my favorites!

Dye as in Color Dye. Instead of just coloring the collar, you can wrap them in colors for better identification.
