This pack, or let's just call it add-on, is an attempt to fix the ugly blocks texture of vanilla Minecraft. If you really enjoy vanilla Minecraft you will probably like this pack, I did my best to not be carried away from the default textures style, and I think I pretty much succeeded at that. All blocks are a derivation from its default texture, made using Paint or sometimes NovaSkin. If you liked, leave a diamond, I will really appreciate that. If you have any suggestion, tell me in the comment section. Enjoy !!! ^_^

List of changes:
-Outstanding awesome incredible paintings
-Better beacon, enchanting table, TNT and crafting table
-New furnace, note block and juke box
-Fixed quartz bottom texture to look like its sides
-Made Gold block like iron and diamond like emerald
-Also made lapis-lazuli block like the redstone one
-Full texture sandstone, red, slab, stair and smooth variants too
-Less noisy netherrack, quartz ore and glowstone
-Better comparator, daylight sensor and jack o' lantern
-Diamond ore similar to emerald, redstone ore similar to lapis
-Edited jungle, oak, birch and iron doors
-Dispenser and dropper top vertical texture in sides position
-Good looking large fern, rose bush and peony
-Minecraft pocket edition's observer's face and removed top
-Cleaned granite and diorite stones to look less noisy
-Adapted smooth granite and diorite to their normal version
-Sticky piston like the normal one but with slime green wooden part

thank you so much for your comment, glad you like it

I think that you should find a better texture for sticky pistons, the diorite and the granite keep them like this there texture are amazing now, you should change the texture of the crafting table back to normal now it looks more like a normal block and less like a crafting table, lapis is kinda weird if you look at it with the redstone texture, and the rose bush you should add it back. I like your ideas though you made small changes to make the game look better here is a diamond.
concerning the crafting table, I changed it for about 7 times, I definitely consider it as an ugly block so I can't let the default texture, I will try to find an alternative, if you use my pack, you can delete the texture+model. for the sticky piston, can you please specify what you don't like in it, the color maybe? or it doesn't look sticky at all? for the lapis block, I changed it multiple times, always trying to keep the default style look, I tryed iron block style, emerald block style and diamond block style, but the best one was redstone style, (not just my own opinion) because in the game lapis is a powder dye, redstone is a powder too, and its block look "powdery" enough (in real life lapis is a solid rock actually). and finally for rose buch... well I like it so much, and I hate the original one so much, also I can't change rose buch and let peony look like lilas, I should change both of them then.
thanks for your comment, all your propositions will be used to improve the pack in next updates, if you have any other suggestions please tell me

and with my diamond you have a full stack of them
lol yeah, I really appreciate your support
how doea this improve fps in any way
some animations are canceled with this pack, like furnace fire, and some blocks are less detailed than their original textures and/or contain less pixels like some non-solid blocks (rose bush, fern,peony). finally there is some textures replaced with pre-existent default textures, like TNT top, dispenser, dropper, quartz block, crafting table.
it's not really that effective, personaly it gives me something like 3 or 4 additional fps

super la nouvelle "image de présentation" (je sais pas le nom :/ ). ^^
merci, "couverture" fera l'affaire :-D
I think diamond should be the same with emerald looking like diamond
diamond already look like emerald block and emerald ore, take a closer look
no i ment diamond block should stay the same and emerald should look like diamond
oh! I already tried that in a very old version of the pack, I did it to all ores and people kept saying that its disgusting specially redstone and emerald, then when I did applied emerald texture to all ores, they said its much better, then I made the actual texture, they said its perfect

also the current texture make more sense because diamond is a gem like emerald, and the only block that look close enough to a gem is the emerald one !
Ok, its your pack i still like it not to over the top in my opinion i think the emerald block is ugly.
glad you like it ! I used to thinking the same thing about emerald block, but with time I changed my opinion.

btw do you have another suggestion for it, apart from making it like the default diamond block
You know i think coal block should look like quartz i was playing with a mod that had such a block and it looked quite nice
biotite from quark mod, isn't it ? ;-)

and again that was featured on my pack, I tried quartz style, diamond style, iron style and even emerald style and all of them failed, when I asked for suggestion they told me that the original texture is actually not that bad at all, and I agreed
you know, I try to make the minimum possible of changes, just the necessary ones
I was more talking about the witchery mod the smokey quartz block. yeah small changes this pack works well with vaders pack which adds diffrent variations to blocks
its the same thing, biotite from quark mod is literally a black version of quartz including chiseled and pillars
nah vaderman's pack cancel many changes in my pack like flowers ,pumpkin and some stone textures
pm now
sticky pistons, oak doors, and ores are uglier now
you're the only one who said that, maybe your right about the oak door, but I still think it's better than the default one, and ores are much much better, its my personal pack anyway.
I have one idea with the wood textures, what if they had the bark textures on all sides? They'd make the wood a lot better, unless there is some way to put this texture elsewhere, I've seen a resource pack where if you put double wood slabs they became the texture I'm talking about.
I've seen that block in Quark mod, I will see how it looks

I just don't find them very nice to look at. Sorry if I'm annoying you
no no you're not annoying me at all, its really important to take people's suggestion seriously.
I'll see what I can do, specially with acacia wood
I updated the PE version!
I have mcpe and it didn't show up. why ? does it work on development version of mcpe ?
Development version works, but just modificating the .apk, but in normal versions works, normally, cause with me too
ok I will try again
I love this Pack !!
don't forget to download today's updated version
glad you do :D I really appreciate your support, thanks
don't forget to leave a diamond ^_^
sorry if I remove more and more textures every time, I always change my mind about some textures, but don't worry I won't remove paintings

je suis pas fan des "actionneur" du vanilla genre le levier/bouton/torche de redstone/tripwire et aussi de la lampe de redstone. Les texture de ton pack me convienne parfaitement sinon.
la majorité des actioneur dependent de texture de blocks pré existente (bouton en bois depend de la texture du pancher de bois par exemple) , je verrai ce que je peux fair à propos du levier et de la redstone torch
Is there any chance that you could release a version of this that only has the paintings? I would definitely download that.
you can open the zip and delete a folder named "blocks" , actually there is two of them, you can delete both of them if you're confused, like that you will only have paintings
I cant cuz it is not allowed. Texture packs have to change at least a certain amount of textures. But you can do it manually
Cool Pack! :)
thank you :-)
also don't forget to update I changed many things today
huge weekend update:
Saturday: granite diorite and andisite along with their smooth version
Sunday: note block and juke box, jack o'lantern, glowstone, ore blocks, birch leaves

I Think someone already knows that, but actually - NovaSkin means New Skin in PT-BR!
I know, Nova skin is skins AND resource packs maker

I think in Portuguese new is novo, in Bulgarian it's nova

The picture descriptions are so sad. Make it so that people want to download the pack when they read the picture description.
really? they are meant to be funny, maybe cuz of my medium english level, I will see what can I do
What Do You Use For Makeing texturepacks???
I started with Paint (the app you find by default on Windows computers), then when I needed more functionalities like transparency I switched to NovaSkin resource pack creator
there's some mistakes in the pictures: neither brewing stand nor nether bricks have changed, also there is a change to Quartz block, I made its bottom texture the same as its side.
Concerning future updates I will probably add jack o' lantern and recolour birch leaves
for glazed terracotta I'm not really sure
I prefer calling it "DS Advance Add-on to vanilla minecraft" . now it makes more sense

Well it seems like a saddled block with a sword on it, but it's fine ;P
Maybe it should have more shades? Idk
LOL XD yeah you're right. what do you think of replicating top's texture in all other sides, or maybe it's a bad idea?

It will probably look like a box after that, but you don't loose anything to try. xD
I did it, just delete it or keep the old texture or hide it some where like under a bed or just place it when you need it, it's ugly anyway so it's a bad decoration :P
ok I will see, 5 months and I stil didn't find a good alternative to this goddamned table
