Special thanks to matt_316 for the preview video!




After a LONG long wait...



FULLY 1.8 COMPATIBLE - Check the update log for a MASSIVE number of changes


After a crash landing on Aleph Setei, you groggily awaken on the shore of an alien sea. A strange and dangerous landscape spreads before you, full of life the likes of which you've never encountered. You'll have to save your sense of wonder for later, as for now, you'll need to gather resources to survive the night when Aleph Setei's sister planet Setei Prime rises above the horizon & the more dangerous creatures prowl the land.

Check out the Aleph Setei tag to see the armor & humanoid mob textures I've uploaded as skins.

I decided to make this texture pack after checking out a few of the other "alien landscape" packs that just seemed like your usual textures with slightly odd colors. In this pack, I tried to make things truly alien, without going too far and things getting silly.

While the look of every mob, item, interface & object is changed, most everything's "type" is still the same. For instance, trees are still trees, torches are still torch-like, and the bow & arrow aren't a laser pistol or anything.

Some things however are very visually different, for instance, sugarcane > paper > book > bookshelf now goes redreed > wire > ribbon cable > mainframe. Likewise, crops > wheat > bread is now tube worms > worm > worm patty. Hopefully you'll find these changes fun, and bring new life to your crafting experience.

Additional Notes

INSTALLATION NOTES!

It's highly recommended to go into your Options > Video Settings and set Alternate Blocks to OFF.  Many of the textures tile in a way that looks pretty awful with alternating textures turned on, specifically stone, grass & netherrack.

Idk if you still respond to messages on this post, put I was wondering if I could use this in a video for Youtube (I'll give credit)

Heck yeah! it was a long time coming.  Gotta say PMC has some cool stuff going on as well, their integrated 3D Schemagic schematic viewer thing is pretty dope.

Thanks!  It's hard to belive this pack has been around since beta 1.2.  Tons of changes since then, but the newer pack format means making changes in the future should be a lot easier.

Thanks!  I think it's a lot better myself.  Some of these animations I've wanted to have in the pack since I first started it, but now with the new resource pack format I can finally add it.  Also I agreed with the suggestions people made about making the wood planks more different. Gives a lot more versatility now that the wood isn't all yellow.

Haha, thanks man!  It's been a lot of work, but I'm super happy with how this 1.8 update came out.  Lots of animations and cool alien stuff to be found.

Best of luck with your pack, if you run into issues feel free to shoot me a PM.

I just realized, playing this texture pack with the "Scan Pincushion" Super Secret Settings shader makes it look like you're remotely piloting some kind of exploration robot on an alien world. I like it. You guys should try it if you get the chance.

This was one of my first texture packs, way back in Beta! Had a ton of fun with it, can't wait for the 1.8 update. A diamond to you, sir!

  • July 19, 2014, 9:17 am
Thanks! This update is a ton of work but I'm really excited to toss in a bunch of animations and such (and eventually all custom block models/sounds).
this was my first texture pack and i thought it was sooooo amazing. i still think it's amazing.
diamond!
life ruined. not for 1.7 updates D:

Fear not, an update is in the works.

Don't worry, I'm going to try and power through a lot of it this weekend.  Got all the blocks done, working on the new creatures next, then on to the items.

I'll probably release a "functioning" pack of just the static textures for everything to tide everybody over until I finish the "complete" pack.  Complete meaning, all custom animations, block models and sounds as well :D  That's going to take a while.

Thanks, be sure to check back in a bit once I've got the 1.8 update out.
One of my favorite packs, but is there any chance of it being updated for the latest versions of Minecraft?
  • NewEvolution
  • Level 63

I'm working on it as we speak!  Expect a lot of updated textures and animations out the wazoo.

Hey, I just took a look at this, and thought it would be kinda fun, but my version of MC won't work. It looks like other people like this too, but are having the same issue.
  • NewEvolution

Yeah, it's wickedly out of date.  Working on bringing it up to 1.8-ready as we speak!

  • March 11, 2014, 4:35 pm
I'm finally getting around to updating it after being kind of overwhelmed with the huge changes needed to bring it up to the new format.  I've got all the blocks separated out and I'm working on horse texures as we speak.  Going to release a 1.8-ready version with a ton of updated textures and animations and junk!

I LOVE this texture pack the only thing i dislike about it is the fact that the bow isnt a Ray Gun or Harpoon Launcher
  • NewEvolution
  • Level 63
  • High Grandmaster Cyborg
  • March 11, 2014, 4:34 pm
I considered the ray gun thing, but making "rays" out of gravel-bits, sticks and feathers just seemed...weird.  I'll have to think about the harpoon launcher idea though, that might work out, or at least some kind of tech-bow.  One of the things I like about Minecraft crafting is that the items in the grid look like the output product, and I don't want to get too far away from that.
  • LordAskelon
  • Level 11
  • Journeyman Pirate
  • March 11, 2014, 4:57 pm
Cool. Will it be updated to at least 1.7.2 anytime soon?
  • NewEvolution
  • Level 63
  • High Grandmaster Cyborg
  • March 19, 2014, 2:44 pm
I guess?  I'm bringing it up to full 1.8, but it should still work for older versions since the formatting will be the same.  Still a ton of work to do, and my HDD died last week so I'm having to reinstall everything and all that fun stuff.

I'll likely release a complete version without the animations once I get that done and then start work on animating stuff. No real ETA though.
:D good to see a texture packer back, also how did your HDD (hard disk drive?) died? did it burnt?
by the way transfroming the animations from your pack is easy, just rename the item animation into the item image in the textures folder, like water and lava , but the flowing fluids animation image needs to be resized in order to work correctly

Update this texturepack to 1.5, pretty please with a cherry on top!

  • January 10, 2013, 2:52 pm
Oh man, you mean like a complete alien language? That's a pretty cool idea, but you wouldn't be able to actually READ anything in-game.

I'll definitely think about it though! =D
  • Aximili
  • Level 74

I meant more like renaming the items, like sugarcane > paper > book > bookshelf-redreed > wire > ribbon cable > mainframe.

  • January 15, 2013, 4:23 pm
Ah, I get you. I might make that an option, but this pack is so weird having the normal names makes it a bit easier to figure out what stuff is if you're not an old hand at Minecraft.
