FORM Architecture Pack 1.12

This resource pack was inspired by architectural drawings. Everything has one, single colour: white (Except for a pallete of single-colour blocks.). In combination with the black outlines you get by enabling Celshading in certain shaders, the unique look is created. But while the textures themselves might be quite simple, this resource pack features a ton of 3d models, opening up a lot of possibilities. You can get creative and try out all the blocks and items, wether you want to make modern or old architecture, furniture, or pretty much anything else. It's Minecraft, after all. This resource pack incorporates special "features", such as certain item models, that can be used to decorate walls when put inside an item frame. Check out the picture gallery and try them out yourself!

This pack is meant for creative building. Don't complain if everything looks weird in survival. Also, playing in a flat world is recommended. I actually made a little "introduction" world where all the blocks are organized into categories and a few gamerules are already set.

of the FORM Architecture World

-Download the resource pack (>upper right) and move it to your resource pack folder
-Get Optifine for 1.12 and Sildurs Vibrant shaders (or any other shader that supports celshading) and install Optifine
-(Recommended) Download the FORM Architecture World (for more information, look at the pictures above) and put it in your saves folder

-Launch Minecraft with the Optifine 1.12 Version, select your shader and open the FORM Architecture World!
-Important: To get the black outlines, navigate to "Shader options" in the shader selection menu and enable Celshading. Also, try disabling bloom. It disables the bright shine on everything.

Connected Glass
After trying to make connected glass textures myself and failing horribly, I switched to the Clear Glass textures by Mrgts.
Thank you! Link to the connected glass only texture pack: http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding/resource-packs/2712555-connected-clear-glass-clear-ice-resource-pack-1-2
(Note: I changed the normal glass to a completely white texture in order to match more with the theme.)

Big Update: FORM Architecture Pack 1.12 (This will probably mess up your old builds!) : 07/17/2017 10:45:24 am7/17/17

I'm on vacation soon, but I wanted to upload this big update for you. So, what's new?

The resource pack has a new name: "FORM Architecture Pack". I just found the old one too generic. I hope you like the new icon, as well.

Support for 1.12 is now here! Glazed Terracotta and Concrete Powder aren't changed yet, but hardened concrete and terracotta have been changed, for example.

I have added a bit of the GUI:
-Title Screen
-Creative Inventory (Search, Inventory, Tabs)
-Chest Inventory
-A bunch of smaller things like buttons
-The creative tabs that you don't have (ignore) in the name now

A lot of 3d models have been added or changed!
-Added more wall decoration objects to put in item frames (8 New ones)
-Changed Daylight sensor to a new decoration object (2 new models)
-Added about 8 new kinds of stairs, the stairs now follow a more logical system (3/4, 2/4, 1/4 and 3/16 variants)
-Changed all slabs to white
-Added some upper slab models
-Changed all of the log blocks, bone block and purpur/quartz pillar into different collumns.
-New models for jukebox, noteblock
-New models for red sandstone variants
-Added models for torch and redstone torch

A few big changes here too:
-Completely reworked colour pallete (14 hues, 5 levels of brightness= 70 colour blocks, + 10 cold gray and 5 warm gray blocks), replaced blocks include concrete, wool, hardened clay, ores, and more!
-New texture for enderchest and all skulls
-Changed ice texture: Ice now looks like black stained glass, but without CTM, allowing you to make interesting patterns!
-Added 1.12 Bed textures with the new colour pallete
-Added texture for the missing double plant (2 textures) and changed all the plants to fit with the new colour pallete
-Changed leaves, grass, dirt, coarse dirt and sand (10 textures) to the new pallete as well - Leaves also have a stylish new pattern now!

I changed pretty much all of the inventory icons for all the items and models that are changed in this pack to be displayed in 3d as well:
-Added sign/painting/armor stand/door model (10 models)
-Added models for the decoration objects (repeater, comparator, daylight sensor) (3 models)
-Added model for redstone, torch, redstone torch, lever and hook (5 models)
-Added model for the different buckets (4 models)
-Added model for the end chrystal
-Changed model for beds
-Changed model for a lot of the item frame objects (wall decoration)

I changed some of the item textures:
-Sticky piston, Grass, Sand, Micelium, Redstone Block, Sea lantern, End stone, Bedrock, Obsidian, Gravel, Snow, Magma Block, Glowstone and Redstone lamp were all completely white before, and still are when placed down BUT you can now easily find them in the inventory thanks to custom textures
-Item Frames and Barrier blocks have a new texture

I have implemented a much better naming system. A lot of blocks have a partly coloured name and extra description text, and I changed so many names I probably can't list everything here:
-All coloured blocks have a new naming system: The hue, followed by a number (1-5) for the brightness
-I removed the "white" for a lot of blocks that were only availiable in white and were it felt to obvious
-New names for the "columns" (pillars, logs, bone block) -> Column 1-9
-New names for all the stairs and slabs, making everything easier to understand (e.g. "1/4" Stairs)
-Everything that's supposed to go into an item frame now has (inItemFrame) in the name
-Everything that has to be placed on a specific block has a (onBlockname) in the name
-Objects with a fixed orientation have (NorthSouth) or (EastWest) in the name
-Blocks with multiple variants (like the daylight sensor modes) have (2in1) (or any other number) in the name
-New names for leaves, doors, skulls
-Stoneblocks with silverfish are now just called "Don't use this block" :)
-All of the new blocks/models have new names as well, of course

If anyone actually reads through this, thank you, this wasn't completely pointless :)
Also, thanks for the support of the resource pack so far! I WILL continue with this, probably in a few weeks (like, 4)...or just when I want to again. I wasn't really that interested for a while now, but I had a lot of fun again this time.

Di you let the natural blocks like grass or logs a bit realistic because i'm building a map with a lot of parks and green spaces. I'm asking this to you because i cant download your pack because my computer is broken -.- but i think your pack is awesome good job man 👍

Sorry, this texture pack isn't really compatible with natural generation or vanilla minecraft builds...
You should start a build when you already have the resource pack. You CAN build something like a park.

Cube_Studio I'm trying to make a map with this texture pack for my friends but i have no idea how the table legs work, i've tried using a barrier like it says and it just looks like the carpet. Am I doing it wrong or is it broken. If I'm doing it wrong can you please tell me how it works? (BTW love the texture pack)
  • Cube_Studio
  • Level 46
  • Master Architect
  • July 7, 2017, 12:27 pm
Put it on top of a barrier block, you shoud see a leg below the "carpet". Right click on the table leg block to change the way the leg looks.

Tell me if you still only see a carpet :)
And if you want, give some more feedback. I will upload a new version of the pack soon....

it should work like this: http://imgur.com/a/Io9i7

Maybe you need Optifine for 3d models that are bigger than the block. I don't really know.

If you want, you can check out the first proper modern house I actually built, together with my little brother :)

We didn't plan a lot but I think it looks quite nice. If you want, you can check it out here.

Regarding your problem...it works on my computer. Why does the link not work for you? Is Mega not loading? Does ad.fly not work? I'd like to know :)

I can put a mediafire link into the comments I think. If needed...
  • Orange011

Yes, the ad.fly is not working. It redirects me to a bunch of different sites, and gets me nowhere.

For me, it only opens mega after waiting. I don't have mediafire. Do you have discord? If you do, check the link in the description above. I will put the link there. Or on mediafire, although I had some problem with that site (so I chose Mega)

  • December 26, 2016, 10:42 am
Sorry for my late reply.
You can, but you would have to...
  • Credit me (and link to the pack) if you upload the map
  • Do not release the edited texture pack on it's own

I think that's all. Would be interesting to hear about this map/ see your textures
Odd..I put your pack in the resource pack folder but when I bring Minecraft up it does not show. I seem to remember this happening a time or two but for the life of me I can not figure it out. Any ideas?
It's all 1.11. I have another resource pack loaded and it shows up. Optifine and Shader already installed.
  • Cube_Studio

Try opening the folder and just put that folder into the ressource pack folder. Seems like I made that mistake again .-.
I have been through the Zip file several times and there is no folder that I can find. I ran across "pack.mcmeta" and "pack.png". Are these what you are referring?
  • Cube_Studio
  • Level 46

That's looking awesome!
And it is cool to see people actually using the pack with shaders and outlines, the way it is supposed to look! (that's not Sildur's shader though, right? Which shader is that?)
Also, I haven't seen anyone using this wall tiles as well (a reason for that could be the fact I added those only very recently).

Also, I don't know which of the wall decorations are used on the glowing blocks...(windows?) - I should know that :D

really love the idea and the very blank nature of the texture pack, but as i attempted to download it, it said this file could be harmful to my computer. we really couldn't afford a new laptop, let alone a repair. i'm really apprehensive about downloading it, and i just want an opinion or a reassurance from the creator. thanks.

oh and also, just literally sobbing atm my computer requires a payment in order to use the type of file the shader is, meaning i won't have those sleek, black lines
  • Cube_Studio

  • Master Architect
  • December 11, 2016, 8:57 am
The creator here :)
If your are actually downloading the pack and not something else, you can ignore the warning! I get those a lot from pretty much any download. Depends on your virus scanner or something I guess.

Also, you have to pay for using shaders? Wait? what? Sorry if I don't understand. And yes, it looks way worse without a shader. Some people said they like it, though..
  • Vlaeth
  • Level 1
  • New Miner
  • December 19, 2016, 7:54 am
sorry for such a late response ;P
yeah, the file that the shader is has to be paid for in order to download any of those types of files.
it sucks, because again, can't really afford anything relating to the computer since it's a monthly payment
  • Cube_Studio
  • Level 46
  • Master Architect
  • December 19, 2016, 10:13 am
But...other people don't need to pay for downloading a shader. Are you using a computer used in a company? Or what? I want to know :D

mine's an Acer. it uses this file program that looks like books stacked on each other.

but yes, it refuses to work at all unless i make a payment. the 30-day free trial is over ;~;

What if I told you...the program (winrar I assume) is actually FREE?
Seriously, Just click the cross and ignore the warning. It works. Forever. At least for me.

And if it really does not work, you could always get an alternative program to unzip the files.

agh, i wish i had done that long ago. it had expired like in the first 2 months of having my laptop, and i had pressed the gotten it removed so rip

but the other option, i don't know how to do that, but i'd love to learn because all the gr8 things i've wanted to do required winrar have been deNIED due to the expiration :P

I downloaded the resource pack. I downloaded Optifine. But for some reason Minecraft doesn't recognize the resource pack. So it doesn't show up under resource pack list like the others. I dropped the resource pack into the folders with the others but for some reason it doesn't show up. This is a shame because I was really looking forward to building with this pack.

Oh. I think I made a mistake. There is a file in the zip file you need to extract, because I did not just zip the original folder but I put it in a new zip folder. Does that make sense at all? :) Anyway, just try it. I will update the pack to keep this from happening.
I had the same problem, this helped me a lot :)
Glad others had the idea of asking for help, or I would've never figured this out!

As you can see in the description, I used Optifine and a Shader (Sildurs Vibrant Shader), and enabled "Celshading". This is how you get the black outlines. You can, however play this in normal 1.11 Minecraft as well, it will just not look as good.
