Old Versions and sub-pack files at the bottom!

Ever Wanted all the best features of those 'basic' texture packs?

Well, here it is!
Made for all the Redstoners, Miners, YouTubers, and Builders out there!
Current release(s): 1.8v1.2 | 1.9&1.10v1.2 | 1.11v1.2 | 1.13v1 & 1.14v1 |

Main Features:
  1. Redstone Components designed to all be easily recognizable and identify block data at a glance.
  2. Miner's Delight.
  3. Builders Nuances.
  4. Mob Contrast.
  5. Misc Nifty Features.

@1. REDSTONE COMPONENTS:
  • Pressure Plates and Buttons: Can't Hide from you! no more walking through disguised traps by accident. 1.13+: weighted plates show power output level.
  • Levers: Know exactly when it's on or off!
  • Dispensers and Droppers: Directional Textures let you know at a glance exactly which direction they are facing
  • Sticky Pistons: Show an "s" on all sides so you'll always know it's a sticky piston, and what direction it's facing at a glance. @Youtube tutorials. 1.13+: Extended/powered state clearly distinguishable
  • Note Block and Jukebox's: Have Different textures to easily distinguish between the two.
  •   1.13+: Noteblock full-dote details display. JukeBox disk inserted or not.
  • Repeaters: Have unique textures for every setting they have, and easily tell what setting they are on from the side! @Youtube tutorials.
  • Compairators: clear contrast when set to subtract mode vs add mode. (v2)
  • Redstone Dust: Has a bold flat line it for ease of sight. and displays power level!
  • Tripwire: SEE the tripwire before you unwittingly walk through it. And even tell if it's connected to tripwire hooks or not! (Green is unconnected, Red is connected) [1.9+: Show when thy are tripped!]
  • Tripwire Hooks: when tripped, the hook's change color for easy troubleshooting if it ever mysteriously gets stuck on.
  • Daylight Sensors: Have an actual Photocell Diode design! 1.13+: Shows power output level!
  • Item Frames: Show the power level for each position an item is in. (Note: some items are angled to begin with. I have added a simple red pixel to commonly used items to show the power position when used in item frames)
  • Detector Rails, Activator Rails, and Powered Rails modified
  • Hoppers: Show what direction they are facing from any side! [1.9+: Show if they are Locked!]
  • Observer block shows activation and signal travel direction from any side!
  • Observer Chain... Mesmerizing

@2. MINER'S DELIGHT:
  • All Ore Blocks: Have that boarder around them that makes them stand out from the surrounding blocks
  • Granite, Diorite, and Andersite: Have a stone texture boarder that makes them blend in just a bit more with the surrounding stone. (boy was it annoying seeing that harsh break in the stone with these new blocks, Fixed It!) (removed 'boarder texture' in 1.13+)
  • Monster Egg Blocks are as clear as ores are. Stamped with a nice "M," can't miss 'em!
@3. BUILDER NUANCES:
  • Double Slabs: easily tell when something is built with a double slab or a full block.
  • Slabs: All slabs have their own slab-style texture
  • Stairs: Know you'r dealing with a stair block, reguardless of which side of it you're looking at. 4 squared texture makes it easy, but won't ruin the look of things.
  • Snow Layers: Visually show (but won't ruin the experience, it's fairly subtle) exactly how many layers are placed.
  • Water and Lava: textures animated when flowing, and shows direction of flow!
  • Monster Egg Blocks: Easily identify these, they all have a nice "M" on them. don't ya hate when folks in creative build with those?
  • Grass, Podzol and Mycelium Blocks : "Seamless" textures make the landscape really flow like the natural wild.
  • Stained Hardened Clay: confused on which color the stained clay's are? While the core color remains the same, the outline shows the dye color clearly.
  • Written Books: Have line numbers and character width (using default font) right on the page for easily centering and managing your book's contents!
  • Moon Phase: Tells you the % chance of slimes spawning in a swamp biome! (light levels and other game mechanics still need to be met for them to spawn) "+" means it's on the rise, "-" means chances are falling
  • Trapped Chests: Have a Red Outline in contrast with a regular chest. Easily see trapped chests that may be connected to trolling :)
  • Signs: Flatter Texture makes signs easier to read
  • CROPS: all crops show exactly how many stages left until harvest-able! and have an outline around them so you know exactly when they're ready, just ignore the numbered stages!
@4. MOB CONTRAST:
  • Changed several of the mobs color schemes to contrast more easily with the environment, works doubly well if you have a mini-map!
  • Creepers: Are bright red so you can't miss 'em, don't let 'em sneak up on ya again!
  • Zombies/Zombie Villagers: Easily tell the difference between Zombies and Zombie Villagers.
  • Wolf: Tame wolves have a clean coat, Wild wolves have 'dirty' stripes, and Angry Wolves have Red Stripes!

@5. MISC NIFTY FEATURES and notes:
  • Lag, reducing: (unproven, optifine recommended with configuring) with the majority of the textures only 16x16 this pack should load for you almost instantly and will keep things running smoothly as you adventure on!
  • Leaves: Each have a respective letter on them according to the tree type they belong to. don't worry, you might not even notice at first.
  • Keeps the original feel of Minecraft, but makes it a bit smoother.
  • Anvils: Easily see the amount of damage an anvil has. when it turns red, time to make another one!
@3D Elements (for 1.9+):
  • Rails, Curved Rails, Activator Rails, Detector Rails, Powered Rails: All in 3D, easilly see your rails!
  • Ladders: Are in 3D and conform to the hitbox of a ladder, Not hard to see from the side anymore!
  • Redstone Wire: is a solid wire, no more flat textures that never seem to line up.
  • Tripwire And Tripwire Hooks: easilly see every tripwire and hook. tell if they are activated or not!
  • 1.13+: Iron Bars
  • 1.13+: Doors
  • 1.13+: Trapdoors

YOUTUBE TUTORIALS:
  • Make your tutorials even easier to follow with sticky pistons clearly visible next to normal pistons!.
  • Droppers and Dispensers show exactly what direction they're facing no matter side you're standing on.
  • Repeaters need only be seen from the side or glanced at from above to see what they are set too.
  • Observer Blocks show activation for any angle.
Textures not changed:
  • Grass, Podzol,and Mycelium itself (mappings changed), Dirt, Flowers, Saplings, Horses, Rabbits, Mushrooms (not the blocks), Paintings, Banners, GUIs (inventory screens), Iron Golem, Guardians, Steve/Alex, Chicken, Snowman, Portals, Fire, some other stuff....

Planned changes in the future:
  • Make available partial re texture packs (ie: Redstone components only resource pack download link) -after project is about 100% done i will make these available.
  • number Inventory screens for content creators. can't find a reliable and up-to-date source for all the different screens to do this accurately. (may not happen)
  • suggestions for improvement?

Notes:
  • If you don't like some of the textures, delete the ones you don't like, but beware, if you delete ones that have modified models/blockstates, you may end up with the 'missing texture'!
  • Yes, the textures have all been 'flattened' and made less vivid. it's a utility pack, not a pretty pack
  • Texture Pack Inspired by CodeCrafted and various YouTube tutorials that i thought could have benefited from some simple texture mods for instructional use.
  • Can't fix the side of lava/water texture not being centered on the 'block' when flowing. help? would like to fix if possible.

Sub Pack Downloads: Grab only the parts you want!
Each Sub-Pack is listed as it's own texture Pack, only add the changes you want! Just List them from top-to-bottom in your resource packs list, Top of the list get's loaded first. Mix 'N Match! Even add other texture packs (last) and those pack's will be loaded too!

You gotta love the irony. This pack was made to make things easier to identify, but most textures are changed to the point of not being recognizable.

The idea of the pack is good, but I doubt straying so far from Vanilla will, "make tutorials even easier to follow."

Amaizing Texturepack!

I'm a supporter on a big Minecraft Redstone server and it is super helpfull to have this texturepack. It makes understanding redstone buildings really easy.

Just one thing. The dot that is supposed to be on item frames, isn't there. Is there a way to fix that?

Besides that, it's perfect!

It is a Utility pack.

Though i like it, so i tend to play with it all the time. most of what i do is technical in the game anyway.

But i know what ya mean. If you want something pretty, there's plenty of other packs out there.
#TechnicalHelperPack

There are sub-packs which only modify a specific subset of blocks you can download as well.

Great pack. A diamond from me, but I found an issue with hoppers. The lock indicator doesn't work right. It only shows the locked state texture if the hopper was placed with a redstone signal already in place. Also, after it has been placed into a signal and shows the locked texture, it doesn't turn into the unlocked texture when the signal is removed.

Using the 1.14 version.

Thanks! :)
Not a bug with the texture pack itself, Minecraft doesn't push every blockstate change to the client as it happens. there's about 8 or so blocks i know of that are processed by the server (like hopper states), but that change is not sent to the client/player, thus the texture doesn't change untill you interact with it and update the client's state of the block.
I put in a bug report about it years ago, but apparently it 'works as intended'
https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-95656

fixing this minor annoyance would require a server-side mod which i won't be delving into, sorry. :/

Just a tip (this is personal, not a problem with the pack) I can't stand the default Minecraft font for signs, chat, books, etc. It'd be kinda cool to have a font for this pack as well. You don't have to, and I know adding a custom font kinda strays from the theme, but It would placate a couple people out there. Aside from that, the pack is flawless.

Spectacular job,

I have no interest in changing the font. As this pack is designed to keep things simple, while adding some utility features that you won't find in default or most any other pack.

-thanks!
