I can finally see through windows!

This resource pack includes simplified glass textures that improve the general gaming experience related to glass windows.
The marked borders of glass cube and panels always gave me more an impression of a cage rather than looking like a whole glass window.
It's also quite hard to really enjoy the view from one side to the other!

I've retextured all the glass blocks making them more discrete but also keeping them faithful to the original ones.
It's just a small detail, but makes an enormous difference in the case off huge modern buildings and skyscrapers!

The effect obtained is a cheaper version of Optifine's connected textures,
but since not all players use it I created this pack to make easy for everyone to enjoy my creations the same way I see them.
The visual difference is quite considerable ;-D


Just put the pack in the .minecraft/resourcepack folder
Open Minecraft
Activate it in Options > Resource Packs
Enter a mc world full of glass windows and enjoy the view!

Leave a diamond if you find this pack useful :-P

Also... fog!
This pack also allows to create effective fog effects, without the need of installing mods!
Here are some examples!

During fog effects testing I noticed some of the textures had borders still too visible!
The following colors have been reworked and are now smoother:
  • lime
  • pink
  • grey
  • silver
  • purple
  • brown
  • green
  • black
It's now possible to create fog effects of every color!

Does this work on glass panes too?

Of course! Take a closer look at the screenshots, many of them have glass panels!
Works on glass and stained glass cubes and panels, and also on iron bars :-D

Thank you so much!
It's a simple texture pack, I retexturized all types of glass to make them look more smooth.
It's not as good as mods because they actively search for adjacent pieces of glass in order to hide borders, but still makes a good difference XD

Thank you very much!
I know it's a simple idea, but this pack was really necessary for me in builds like the ones in the screenshots :-)
Thanks for the suggestion on iron bars, I'll work on them soon!
