COTERIE CRAFT
is not your traditional faithful pack, it's not default...

INSTEAD, it has evolved into something eye-pleasing and iconic. Call it whatever you want: lush, soft, simple, smooth, HD, cartoony... it's whatever it needs to be to make Minecraft look like the game it ought to be.

"DEFAULT REVAMPED"
is just what I call it...

Coterie Craft intends to improve the appearance and fervor of Minecraft by giving it the textures it deserves, and that goal has been preserved thanks to the efforts of those who continue my pack: Ganlolde and karst.

This pack holds its original inspiration from ExtraNoise's QUANDARY PACK, which featured work from Bonemouse as well as myself, Cpt. Corn.

(Basically the history of it all and a little bit about myself)

It all started with the Quandary Texture Pack, created by ExtraNoise, he set the baseline for this pack. ExtraNoise was quite big within the texture pack community, widely known in the days of Minecraft Alpha for "sprucing up the default textures" and his assortment of seasons, by which changed the grass and foliage color to look coherent to the designated month and/or season type within the year. He would also contribute some of his textures to Rhodox, author of the Painterly Pack, such as the feather sprite to name one. But not too long after I got my Minecraft account, awarded through an honorable mention in the 2010 WoM Halloween Contest, I felt that his textures could be improved upon, or to at least have them look good in my Minecraft.

Thus, in the late December of 2010, was born the Best of Quandary Texture Pack. It wasn't much to be honest, but it had a purpose. Apparently ExtraNoise became unresponsive by this time, updates in his pack no longer came... and I decided to step into the scene to some degree. Bonemouse, a major contributor to Quandary for his outstanding mob textures (currently the author of his own pack, Isabella), supported my work, even if it was made rather simply through the basic mechanisms of "copy" and "paste." But then again it wasn't all that bad, I did some recoloring and knew how to apply smoothness... so I guess it was an 'OK' compilation at the time. Again, bonemouse was supportive and so were other members within ExtraNoise's thread on the Minecraft Forums, I respectfully gained supporters over time and met many great contributors as well as nice people, no longer on the forums now, but dearly remembered.

To mention one of these people, with varying fascination towards each one of them, Morgus was the first to comment on my topic. But what was almost ironic about the matter was that ExtraNoise sponsored one of Morgus' comments as a kind of technique in presenting one's own content with words outside your own; he said, "Love it! [...] Many subtle changes while preserving the original atmosphere." Morgus then says to my pack, "Nothing to improve imho. I am using this with great pleasure." (probably using this version at the time) So I was kinda proud to have that initially positive feedback from the get-go. By this time I had already created my own quandary-style armor models based on the sprites that Quandary had... and it was a good update; bonemouse approved. Posted Image

Another person I'd like to mention, Axapez! He, along with many other contributors, had presented me with honest, unrestrained and well-appreciated, constructive criticism that helped this pack grow to greater demand. Eventually we joked about this "Axapez standard," whereas he would always have something to say for the better improvement of the pack, always giving me something to do as it would seem, and it was this standard that many appreciated when I upheld it, especially Master7432 and i_r_everyday_azn.

As more and more improvements were made, the Best of Quandary Pack became less of a compilation and more of a revival of Quandary, considering ExtraNoise was gone for such a long time. The pack was then called Quandary Reborn, but the name was only fitting for so long. Eventually many of my old-time contributors began to fade, but new contributors came in the process, for whom were many fans of Quandary. ExtraNoise also came back after such a long time, and later incorporated my armor models into his newer version of Quandary, but with much unwanted change, such as his new cobblestone, it had many of his fans find a distaste in the newer Quandary and sought to it that Quandary Reborn would retain the old Quandary as they remembered it.

My edits to the pack were entitled towards preserving Quandary, at least to the eyes of those who found my pack with much expectation, then to their disappointment. While many of my long-time contributors looked for ways to improve their Minecraft however way they felt necessary through the constructive criticism that they have always offered, my pack grew apart from the old Quandary look that many had desired and continued to take on a more independent role in fulfilling the needs of others who wanted an improved vanilla Minecraft look, so to speak. Two factions came out of this situation, but there was a way to resolve it. The name Quandary Reborn was no longer an accurate name for the pack it was, for it had grown more independent as I kept pouring more of my spin into the mix by making all kinds of edits to it's original foundation; all to their liking. Names were debatable at the time, and I tend to be very picky when it comes to names, but we found one that fit. The word "Coterie," by definition, was to represent a group of people who shared a similar interest, such as my fellow contributors at the time, then the word "Craft" was traditional generic for a texture pack name, but it fit nicely when it came together - Coterie Craft.

As was the new and current name of Coterie Craft, established in the early March of 2011, fully independent from it's original counterpart with goal to provide Minecraft's "New Default" by improving the gameplay and fervor of Minecraft, the Quandary name, on the other hand, is still a good one but has often been confused and wrongfully ridiculed due to my pack's similarities and surpassing success over time. A similar story can also be said about Dusty's Textures being used by Gerudoku, except no one has really given Dusty any noticeable credit for all the item sprites he made, whereas I hope that ExtraNoise's work, along with any other sources that I may use, are credited properly and noticeably, so that they may be supported for their efforts. Moreover, I hope this excerpt on my pack's history will serve some justice in providing evidence to the past and well-being for the future.

Help support Coterie Craft:

I have been reluctant about providing a donate button for a very long time, let alone trusting adfly. The time never seemed right for me to "advertise" a way where I could profit from this project, especially when its core objective is to provide a revamped version of default for anyone who wishes to use it. The only exception I have for those who wish to donate is towards my college fund.

Still, if it were to come down to me being the donator, I would respectively support ExtraNoise's work, since he set the baseline for my pack. Without his Quandary Pack, I probably would not become the texture artist that I am today. Perhaps, to keep it fair, the donations should be split 50:50 between him and I, unless you are compelled to do otherwise.

Thank you ever so much. ^-^

I've been off and on this texture pack since 2013. The change from 16x to 32x bring so much more detail. It has brought to me a level of nostalgia and serenity every time I use it. Thank you for staying up on this pack. I love it. And keep up on the awesome work.
May I use this pack on my private server?

  • March 10, 2018, 4:09 pm
I prefer the 16x for the Vanilla feel of the game, but the 32x brings a whole new level of detail creating a 'new' default feel. Almost like the Faithful Pack but in its own way.
I love both but I am currently using the 32x

Umm, Hello Cpt. Corn! Would it be possible if I could borrow your dirt, grass, and log textures as placeholders for my resource pack? If not that's ok, or if you don't want to allow me to use all three of these textures, then tell me the textures you would allow me to use! :)

Awesome work man, I've always missed the Quandary pack since it stopped being supported.
A thing or two that could be changed - the ice seems a bit too opaque, and it's easy to confuse it with the packed ice. Also.. the cobblestone seems nearly identical to the stone bricks. Would it be possible to use a more vanilla-like texture for cobble & moss stone?
Other than that, excellent work!

Hi, it's just to say I like coterie craft and I've started a 32x32 version of it a long while ago.
I'm asking to all the coterie fans : Should I continue it ?

You're more than welcome to continue it if you want. Just be sure to properly credit it and put a link here somewhere in it. Also, Coterie Craft does not use adfly, as such we would appreciate it if packs using it did not either. (In case you upload it in the future)

It looks really good though, if you like to continue, I should say, you are doing a great job. In my opinion you should continue, but only if you like to do it, do not force yourself, that feels bad to me. Continue doing stuff you like to do, and if that is this, than, in my opinion, you should keep up the great work you have done already :)
Might other CotrieCraft Members will answer you aswell
Are we ever going to get the customizer back?

I wish we could, but as I have explained before it is out of my hands. The customizer depends on the site it is hosted on. That site has not been updated for quite awhile. Plethora cannot update until the site does.

Could you please change the cobblestone texture, it looks a bit like stone bricks and could you remove the dot in the middle of the crosshair. You don't have to do this if you don't want to.

  • December 20, 2013, 5:59 pm
Cobblestone texture is a touchy subject. Captain has introduced several new versions of the texture but it seems that the majority of users prefer the current cobblestone (I tend to agree). As far as the reticle goes, I haven't heard many complaints about that one so I doubt we make an official retexture of it. Since it is a fairly easy change however, if you pm me I would be willing to make a custom cursor for you without the center dot and walk you through how to install it. Thanks for the critiques!

Happy Hollidays from me!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please, PLEASE go back to the old sounds for falling, taking damage, and opening chests. I created an account on PMC just so I could post here. This has been my go-to texture pack for over a year. I love that it changes the things that need to be changed, and leaves the rest alone. So PLEASE get rid of the horrible, deep man-voice that sounds every time I jump off something. Combat or sorting through chests with these new sounds requires me to mute my speakers.
Everything else you've done with this pack is amazing, just revert back to the original sounds. I don't want to have to edit it for every update :/
Same here, came to say this. The new sounds are terrible. I'm okay with new sounds that are very similar to the old ones, but these are just annoying, especially the player sound when taking damage

  • Ganlolde
  • Level 19
  • Journeyman Artist
  • December 8, 2013, 12:25 pm
Personally, I don't have any plans to. While I have the software to do it, I think changing the sounds would be a big break from the "new default" goal. Improving them is maybe something I would look into but I make no promises as far as that goes.
  • Cpt. Corn
  • Level 86
  • Elite Deity
  • December 8, 2013, 1:36 pm
Actually, I think we would achieve "new default" if we were to add back the old, iconic sounds that are no longer present in the current Minecraft. If anything, we could choose what sounds stay and what sounds should go, and then if both versions of a certain sound sounds bad, then we will have to replace it somehow. It shouldn't be hard to implement, but I haven't had the time to place focus on this issue.... the college semester is in its last stretch - projects and papers.

I miss the old sounds a ton... The new ones just seem, meh. Doesn't seem too cartoony-like to me, but that is just my preference. Would be a cool thing to add the older sounds back, but it isn't my place to make the decisions.

In many places on PMC, many popular, your voice may not be heard, and, indeed, it wouldn't be your place to make the decision.

But here it's a little different, your voice matters, and it contributes to the constructive criticism and insight that a texture pack desperately needs in order to be good, especially when a theme such as this one is not as clear-cut as one would imagine. I personally agree with your opinion, and it's what we have planned.

The helmets on every armor look… awkward. The middle piece of the helmet looks odd. You cannot really see the skin through it too well, and it the middle piece goes down too far. The whole helmet looks too big for the character in my opinion. I really like this pack, so I hope you take this as constructive criticism :)
