My first attempt in reinventing Minecraft's look and feel, the essential part was that it had to remain true to the original Minecraft in a way it would be instantly recognizable, but should be less in you face and more appealing and realistic to look at. So it had to be 16x16 pixels and use a similar color pallet.
It started just with a glass replacement but I ended up drawing pretty much everything from scratch spending countless hours tweaking en redesigning stuff.

Hope you all like it! And if you do, please consider donating some diamonds, thanks! :D

You should consider using MCPatcher (or Optifine) though.

I downloaded it now, but the text is very strange! Is it a bug? I`m on a iMac :)

Did you install MCPatcher? I personally haven't tested Optifine yet (no official release yet).
Vanilla Minecraft has font issues and does not support the features that make this pack really great. Give MCPatcher a try and make sure you enable the mods mentioned in the additional information section above.
Oh... :( McPatcher and optifine wont work on my mac... Too bad :,(
Haha! The text is normal when i turn on pirate language! funny as hell! :D :D

I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work on Mac, I'm using solely Linux and using the jar from MCPatcher and it works just fine. (Place is in the MC root and execute)

i can't download it, beacause wehn i wait 5 secs on your site my browser says that the site is not found.

When i know how to download it i will give a diamond and a favorite. it looks realy nice!

The 5 second timeout is to help people choice a different version before it starts downloading. You could press the button yourself as well.
About the page not found, I can't seem to reproduce this, could you try again?
I did made some counter link copy actions to combat sites linking to the files directly, if the problem persists please PM me with some more detailed information. Thanks!

Great texture pack dude. Do you think you could add a texture for anvils and wither skulls? And i think if you added mobs that would be CRAZY cool.
  • 2nv2u
  • Level 45
  • Master Pixel Painter
  • March 13, 2013, 9:56 am
Thanks! There should be a texture for the anvil (although it isn't that detailed i guess), the wither head is missing in the current version (bug), but will be back in the 1.5 update!

The mobs are on the todo list, so stay tuned! :)
The connected sandstone textures in this texture pack are absoloutely insane. In a good way...

You definately should, your ability to make loads of blocks all look different like a proper landscape is mind-blowing :)

  • February 15, 2013, 9:42 pm
If you use Optifine you should delete these two files:
/ctm/block64.properties
/ctm/block71.properties

Even though I mentioned this in the page above, most people don't read it.. ;)
I'm using better glass (shadings in the glass, you should try using MCPatcher to see the difference) for several blocks (including doors) which Optifine does not support (yet), for some reason it stops it from rendering the doors completely. I've reported the bug to the author of Optifine hope it gets fixed soon...
