Chromatose is the result of various experiments with color theory and developing game graphics using Minecraft as a vehicle. I also got tired of seeing the ugly 'coder' graphics that came with the game originally. I also got highly involved in this because I've found playing Minecraft to me is like developing a zen garden, you take a lot of time developing structures of intrigue and that's what I hope this pack can do is help make those wonderful structures look that much better.

If you download this pack, you may -

Use this pack in any video even with monetization. If you do monetize you MUST include a link to this thread or the one on PlanetMinecraft.
Use parts of this pack in any PRIVATE remix packs... you CANNOT and I repeat CANNOT redistribute the remix in ANY way.
Use any of the CTM coding to reference ways of making a pack yourself.

You also are restricted from doing the following -

You are not allowed to redistribute any piece of this pack AT ALL except for the CTM Coding that I have described above.
You are not allowed to take any asset and claim it as your own.

If there are any questions, please write me either in this thread or via pm I'll be glad to clear up any issues.

These are galleries that I've gotten set up through Imgur to showcase Chromatose as best I can!


This is a gallery of all the blocks based on Kab's Texture Showcase

This is a gallery of awesome builds and stuff that's been sent to me from players enjoying my pack! Feel free to send me your images and I'll gladly toss them in here!

I'd like to thank CrochetKim and BlackCosmos567 for some of these pics! Also I've included some of my own...

This gallery will showcase the natural form of Minecraft under Chromatose

Also some Youtube Videos that I've either found or asked for. If you guys want to put up vids on Youtube, please let me know! I'd be happy to post them here!


There are two types of [Base] packs... one is -Stable- and the other is Experimental, the experimental one is always changing but might have something messed up in it. It's pretty much what I use through dropbox to go between my drawing laptop and my PC. The stable one goes through CurseForge, you can also get the archival packs for the 1.5(backwards compatable) and 1.6. These are no longer updated though.

These links go through Adfoc.us to help me produce a small fund that I use to help my house a bit, it's not much but helps with groceries every once in a while

These links are direct links that do not use Adfoc.us but you still go through goo.gl, this way I can see how many downloads I got with them.

I've set things up with the pack to work as a stand alone pack with add-on packs for either MCPatcher or Optifine. The reason behind this is because I've tried out my pack with Optifine and found that there are several new things with CTM that aren't available either because they've not been updated within Optifine or what have you. So I've set out to work an add-on pack that will make it so people who work with Optifine aren't burned but rather enhanced.

So here's what you'll need to do!

You just take the base pack and the add-on that coresponds to the mod you're using either MCPatcher or Optifine.
Put that in your .minecraft/resourcepacks folder.
Go into Minecraft, hit the Resource Packs Button, and put the Base Pack on the bottom of the list with the MCPatcher or Optifine over it.
If done right everything will be working fine.

I don't mind anyone taking the time to share my pack around, in fact I wholly support people spreading the word!

I've got code that can be found at Minecraftforums that can be used as a Signature.

I have a Facebook profile set up for my works under the name Psychovision Entertainment.
You can add a 'Like' or 'Follow' it here!

I always accept donations through Paypal. Just give this little button a whirl and toss as much change in the can as you'd like!

I'd also like to thank the following people

Thank you all for checking out this thread and my pack. Feel free to contact me with any suggestions or concerns!

Alrighty folks, finally got done with all of them items... trust me I believe they look a ton better.

So add to the list...

Seeds, Shears, sign, All Skull icons (pre1.8), Slimeball, Snowball,
Spawn Egg and overlay, Spider's eye, Fermented Eyes, Sticks, Stone
Tools, String, Shovel, Sugar, Wheat, All Wood Tools... Also had things
set up in the folder so the newest stuff be at the bottom... so the
following list is a bit odd XD

Clock, Compass, Charcoal, Lead,
Nametag, Clownfish, Pufferfish, Salmon (raw and cooked), Prismarine
Shards and Crystals, Barrier, Everything Bunny (Stew, Hide, Raw, Cooked
and Foot), Mutton (raw and cooked), All the new door icons, Saddle, the
Ruby (if someone uses it in a mod...) Barrier, Banner icons... that I
don't think get used at all... and finally Wooden Armorstands....

that was a lot of work...  Also got a new font ascii put into both the
Base pack and MCPatcher... My old handwriting one is the original but
all you got to do is copy and paste it into the .../font/ folder and you
can have the 'Timeless' font made by Manfried Klein....  I lay no claim
of ownership to this font.

You can get it here also http://www.dafont.com/timeless.font

I got 99 logs but a Birch ain't one XD

Another Experimental base pack update... soon I'll be updating the Stable base pack... I'll keep you posted on that...

A few more items fixed up...

Painting icons, Paper, Porkchops
(cooked and raw), Potatos (raw, cooked and rotten) Potion Bottles,
Splash Potion Bottle, Potion overlay, Pumpkin Pie, Quartz, All records,
Redstone Dust, Reeds, Repeaters, and Rotting Flesh.

So far
getting through all of the old items and cleaning them up has been it's
own unique challenge.  Once I get this done, I'll be sure to check out
Optifine for 1.8 and see what needs to be updated there as well as
finish up all the unique aspects I was working on with that.

next update will probably add two new 'font' files to the pack, Both
will be sourced from DaFonts.com and I'll be sure to add their links in
the op when I am done.  They will not be on defaultly but rather
something you can go in and change easily.  I will have a 'Clean Font'
and an 'Exotic' font.  Also the original 'SRD's Handwriting' font will
still be available.

Feel free to click on the buttons up at the top of the OP for the downloads.  Remember if you just use Vanilla without anything like Optifine or MCPatcher, you will just need the 'Base' pack.  If you use one of the two mods previously stated, Grab the add-on for that mod and put it on top of the list with the base pack under it.  I hope you enjoy my little mad meandering here XD

Base Pack update!
Some more items made it through the grind of detranslucentization

Tears, Glowstone Dust, Gold Tools, Gold ingots, Gold Nuggets, Gun
Powder, Hoppers, Iron Tools, Iron Ingots, Item Frames, Leather, Magma
Cream, All Minecarts, Both Maps, Melon and Gold Melon, Mushroom Stew,
Nether Brick, Nether Star, and Nether Wart.

Also found out I had some nasty unneeded files and removed them post haste.

YAY over 10,000 Downloads!!!!

Updates so far...

Another update to the base pack, some more items have been edited to
remove that ghastly ghost pixelization due to 1.8 allowing for
translucent pixels in the item icons.

So far got through to the 'E's

Bones again, had a couple spair pixels I missed, fixed Cake, Carrots
(reg, gold, and the one on a stick), Cauldron, Chicken (raw and cooked),
Clay Balls, Coal, Comparator, Cookies, Diamonds, Diamond Tools got a
tweek also.  Iron and Oak Door Icons, Dyes (all of 'em, rose apparently
the worst with ghost pixels), Eggs, Emeralds, Eye of Ender, Ender Pearl,
Experience Bottles, Feathers, Fire Charge, Fireworks, charge and
overlay, Cod Fish (cooked, raw and the classic pre1.7 versions), Fishing
Rods, Flint, Flint and Steel, and Flowerpots.

So now Got A - F done with all items tweaks.

Also updated the MCPatcher Addon to allow folks to use the new updated MCPatcher for 1.8!!!  If anything's broke let me know ok!
  Hope you all see the changes!

Alrighty 'bout time for a new update on this thing... folks it's a bit of a list.

So far I added four entities...
the Sheep, Endermite, Silverfish, and Armor Stand

Also started going through and fixing the item textures for bad pixels and
translucent pixels... this is going to take a bit of time.

However I already got the following done and out of the way
Apple, Golden Apple, Arrows, Bed, Beef, Cooked Beef, Blaze Powder, Blaze Rod,
Boat, Bones, All Books, Bowls, All Bow stages (lots of tweeks done to
clean these up), Bread, Brewing Stand, Bricks, All Buckets....

So far this is my next major project with this pack, finishing up
mobs/entities and fixing the translucent pixels and bad pixels in the

My minor project in this pack is to redo the fonts
Sorry for the late update, been working that big overtime for the last month or so...

Sorry I've not been actively updating this pack... I have been working nonstop for the last three weeks at work... loads of overtime... mandatory too... so I just haven't had as much time to work on this pack as I'd like... not like I want to.  I have been working on updating the MCPatcher setup for 1.8 and I'll be working on getting the 1.8 Optifine in order as soon as I can.  Also got some of the mobs worked on... I'll update as soon as I can!

Thanks for the patience -SRD
