The Classic Alternative resource pack is a blast from the past that revives most of the old sounds and textures.

I have also changed the textures of more recent features in the game to make them consistent with the older aesthetic. For example, I have added black borders around all of the new foods and crops, made all doors resemble the classic oak door, pig villagers, sheep illagers, lapis-like nether quartz, and much more.

My ultimate vision for this pack is to make the modern versions of Minecraft feel like a continuation of Beta, as if it were some kind of alternate reality where Beta never ended. For those who desire something a bit... older... the neon variation of the pack includes the brightly-colored grass from the classic-thru-alpha days. For the most authentic beta/alpha experience, play with smooth lighting turned off, and moody lighting <3.

Anybody can take any asset from my pack. The classic, returning textures aren't my own to begin with, however if you use one of my custom textures (such as the doors or the iron golem) I would like to be credited. Keep an eye out on this page (or subscribe to my profile) for any updates to the pack.

Downloads for older versions (pre 1.14) and the NEON pack are available below!
Also, shoutouts to jschlatt for using my pack!

Will you add the old lighting?

Not like smooth lighting or moody brightness, I mean the old white/grey lighting.

sorry, I am asking too much, but the crop breaking sounds are stored in sounds/block/bamboo. It is named
sapling_place. The crop PLACING sounds are in sounds/item/plant. It is named crop. The netherwart one is netherwart.

I think a good idea would be to add special chest models for optifine that don"t open, like they did in beta. First Edition is a similar resource pack to this one, you could probably use the way they did it.

I've got a solution to remove the hardcoded colors for badlands, swamp and roofed forests for the neon pack. Find the json files for grass, grass block, lily pad and vines. Open the files that has tintindex written on them. Change the value from 0 to -1, and then find the tinted_cross json file, and then change the tintindex value from -1 to 0
again. And voila!

Have you ever thought about setting up a github page of some sorts where people can contribute to the pack? In theory it would be something like what the dokucraft team have with their "dokustash" website where anyone can upload alternative textures for the pack.

just some issues:
-villager restock sounds have the full-volume-at-any-distance bug
-a certain variant (or variants) of the zombie villager has a completely missing head
-plants make a step sound when you move through them, causing duplicate grass step sounds when running & jumping through grassy areas
thank you for the continuous updates, you are a legend.

Good but needs work

best nostalgia pack you can get but I do have some minor nitpicks

Less textured horse texture

berry bushes are oak leave size (kinda like the aether legacy mod)
make all food items with a black border(kelp included(
make flowers a dandelion or rose variant
make the lantern black (and has a cage texture)
make newer animals less textured
make seagrass a darker version of the neon grass
make striped logs less textured

and thats the list

There’s one thing, though. Bread never had any black borders, maybe because it is not in the meat category? I don’t think It would be good for fruit type items to have a black border.

The new Diorite and Granite textures are great.

But why did you use the new cobblestone texture for something that's meant to emulate the old textures?

Level 55 : Grandmaster Goblin
monsterfart77
Thanks! That newer cobblestone texture isn't that old, and was actually introduced in beta 1.7. I thought it would be fun to use it for something, and I think it might've been suggested at some point, but I could be remembering that wrong.

Thanks for the criticism too, I actually had the anvil resembling iron at one point, but it was way too white and looked terrible. I like the way the lantern looks, but I might consider making it a little less bright and jarring, and give the anvil another shot. I'll be taking other criticisms into consideration as well :)

This is one of those products that are so good that you basically force yourself to sign up to a website just to dedicate yourself to it.



I really appreciate that you went out of your way to notice the smaller details of what made Minecraft Minecraft back in the golden age, such as reusing sprites and assets for various purposes (cactus green representing white dye was a great touch) along with going above and beyond to include not only the textures, but the sounds. I love your interpretations of what modern day blocks, such as barrels and the new tables, would have been, as well as outlining the food items to make them appear darker. I hardly even remembered that wool looked different back then.



But there are flaws with this. Namely, melons slices, rotten flesh, and dried kelp don't have black borders like all other food items, which leaves them looking oddly "new".




You also never changed the trap doors, and I don't like how you swapped textures for the Redstone and Coal blocks when you could have used the Lapis Lazuli block to keep the "recycling assets" philosophy. You had a custom texture for Mycelium, but not Podzol. The top of the Stonecutter block looks odd, as it doesn't have the same black border as other furnace blocks that it's supposed to draw inspiration from. I can't really tell if you touched the Loom block at all.




Granite, Diorite, and Andesite look mediocre at best. My issue with Granite is that it has dark spots that don't blend well when it's recycling the Stone texture, yet Diorite doesn't differ from Stone too well. Andesite's texture just looks jarring; did you use Cobblestone as a reference? You probably would have done it more justice by incorporating the Gravel textures on it while using Stone as a base, so that people can recognize that it's supposed to be Andesite (play around with layers and such). For Diorite, I recommend using Smooth Sandstone as a reference instead of Stone. For Granite, I would likely use Bedrock and play with contrast until it looks just right.



The worst offense, however, is the lantern. Anvils get to keep their dark grey color despite being nothing but iron, but the lanterns turn into a jarring shade of white to try and say "Yes, I'm made of iron." If I were you, I would just revert it to its original texture.

If you consider my criticism, thank you. I love this texture pack.

That's right. I looked at the Redstone texture myself and it did, in fact, use the Lapis texture. Weird how I didn't see it... wait, there's moss under the boats?



Anyways, I think I'll give a helping hand while I'm at it. Here's my "fixed" textures for the stone alts and redstone/coal blocks. Edit them if needed; I don't think they're quite perfect myself.

I would greatly appreciate if you could add versions with Calm4 in the game either as an in-game song or Record.
