NOTE: This Pack is now too big to fit on PMC in full. Please download the Full Optifine-Compatible Version, as well as the Sound/Music Pack:

Explore and settle the NEW HYRULE!

The goal of this resource pack was to create (from the ground up) a Zelda-themed mash-up in the vein of, and matching the quality of the Super Mario Mash-Up that was released for the Wii U version of Minecraft. This is mainly themed after Wind Waker but there are numerous pulls from other games in the franchise.

If you have Optifine, please consider downloading the full version of this pack HERE. If you don't have Optifine, download the latest version (preview version if no other 1.17 version is available yet) from their website http://optifine.net/downloads The Optifine profile enables the custom skybox, custom entity models, lighting, connected textures, and mob variants (including 400+ visually distinct Villager NPCs) that I created for this pack. I also recommend playing with clouds turned off since there are already clouds in the optifine enabled skybox.

Here is a guide to the item variants that are accessible if you're using Optifine and the FULL VERSION of this pack: https://i.imgur.com/3tefjP9.png

What makes this Wind Waker Resource Pack special?

-Compatible with Minecraft 1.17
-Compatible with Optifine
-100% complete resource pack (other than music and sound effects because they were too big. Download Separately HERE)
-Designed specifically for 16x16 texture resolution by a reasonably skilled pixel artist
-Unified, Cohesive design.
-I tried to make it a solid resource pack even if you don't know Zelda, so that you still enjoy it even after the initial novelty wears off.

Why is it 16x16 and not HD? A few reasons: Firstly, Nintendo's own official "Super Mario Mash-Up" for Minecraft Wii U was only 16x16 and this pack was inspired by that one. Secondly, I think lower resolution textures mesh better and don't look as awkward on the blocky models of Minecraft. Lastly, by making this in a 16x16 resolution I am able to broaden the scope of the pack for things like including 400+ visually distinct NPCs.

There are a number of other good Wind Waker-inspired packs out there, made by folks like Ravecat, Fluesopp, IronSentron, and Blaziken584 which you should check out if you want an HD pack, but none of those were exactly what I was looking for, and none of those have been updated to the latest version of Minecraft, so I made my own.

I hope you enjoy,

Optifine Changes (Only Available in FULL VERSION):

-Overhauled villagers for Optifine users. There are now 12 races of villager (some might not be encountered without spawn eggs.):
Hylians are found in most normal biomes.
Sheikah are found in mountainous areas, forests, and bamboo forests.
Kokiri are found in dark forests.
Zora are found in salt water.
Subrosians are found below Y=50.
Lorulians are found in the Nether.
Twili are found in the End.
Gorons are now found in savannah, but also badlands and gravelly mountains.
Rito are now found in taiga, but also snowy taiga regions.
Anouki are found in other snowy or icey areas.
Deku are found in swamps and jungles (aside from bamboo jungles).
Gerudo are only found in desert areas.

-Between these 12 races, there are now around 500 unique idividuals. Most are Hylian. Some can only be encountered by giving a villager a certain name (using a nametag).
Try giving a villager a name used in Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, or select other notable indivuals from throughout Zelda history.

-Added improved optifine models for many mobs
-Added a special blue wizzrobe skin for witches that spawn in or near oceans.

-Gave Ladders a CTM texture

-Made Podzol overlap onto other blocks
-Made Podzol connect with dirt

-Gave Iron Block and Copper Block/variants connected textures.
-Glowstone now connects with Netherrack
-Grass Path block now has the appearance of a path on its sides as well as its top.
-Added Several new types of parrot. Some can only be encountered by naming a parrot with the right name using a nametag.

Could you link to the Wind Waker recreation world used to showcase the textures? Thanks.

The world is part of a server that will be made public at some point in the future. When that happens I will include a link to it in the pack description. I also recently obtained a copy of the world for my own files, so in the event that the server's launch is canceled (or in a few other very specific circumstances) I have permission in those cases to share the world file myself. But until the server goes public or goes bust, it won't be accessible to anyone other than the people working on it.

I noticed optifine doesn't seem to have a 1.17.1 version... Am i wrong? I clicked on your link (haha) but the 1.17.1 looked like it was still in progress.

No official release for 1.17 or 1.17.1 yet, but if you click "Preview Versions" below those version headings, you can download versions that haven't quite been fully testing yet. I waited to release my pack until those preview versions were stable enough that I didn't notice any issues with my pack. I used them when making an testing my pack and never had an issue, but there's probably a few glitches they're still cleaning up before they're ready to call it "released".

using optifine, is it possible to make Ender Dragons look like Helmoroc Kings in the overworld? As sort of an easter egg? And volvagia in the goron biome?
