Do you love the medieval era? Are you a fan of gargoyles and illuminated manuscripts? Do you eschew electricity? (obviously not on the last one, since you're using a computer...) Well, Wolfhound Classic Medieval variant of the original Wolfhound may be the pack for you then. Filled with drab colors, carvings, and illuminated inspired textures, you'll be able to build your ideal medieval castle with this pack.

Why Classic medieval?
There's a couple different styles within what's called the medieval era. This is made to look like what everyone typically thinks of when they think of that time period.

What's with all the Christian imagery?
This is a medieval pack. They were kind of into that sort of thing back then. There ARE illuminations that break the trend but... I'd get my account banned if I linked to them. Seriously. They're nsfw.

The end portals feature the Christian emblems so prominently because I figured... if the nether is hell, then why not make them believe that the End is heaven? Course, the poor poor villagers have it totally wrong, but hey... they're not the ones jumping through the portal, right?

I can't read the font.
JOIN THE CLUB. But seriously, it's a modified version of a medieval script so it's actually more legible than the actual thing. If you can't figure it out after a little bit, you can always swap in the text from a different version of Wolfhound. I'm able to read it okay, but I'm used to it.

Where did the paintings come from?
They're from illuminated scrolls I did for a medieval reenactment group I'm part of. They span a very wide range of time and skill level, as I only do about six a year and maybe two of them can be reused for Minecraft here.

Okay, explain some of the logic behind the textures.
GLADLY.

Food: I'll only explain the ones I don't think are self-explanatory. Cake: fig tart. Pumpkin pie: rice tart (I know, it doesn't make sense but I really like rice tarts). Cookie: pine nut cookie, thought it was medieval but I wasn't able to find a source on it, but they're tasty so whatever. Cod: it's cooked with egg. Potato: turnip tart. Sugar: honey, as that was used to sweeten desserts primarily. Rabbit: I found a recipe that had like a bazillion different ingredients so I just scribbled all over the rabbit chunks.

Plants: The rose is monkshood and the dandelion is belladona. I don't remember what the others are, but they're all plants I learned about when I took a class on medieval poisons. Yes. You read that right. It was an amazing hour of my life. The two hour medieval barber-surgeon class? Just as amazing but far, far more horrifying. I learned things that cannot be unlearned.

The rails are wood planks because there is pretty much no rail equivalent back then. Planks are sometimes used in areas where the ground is really muddy to help people keep their footing.

If you look real close, there's teeny tiny animal heads drawn on the netherbricks. That's because this is reoccurring theme in illuminations. Yes, I spend my free time looking this stuff up. I'm a nerd.

The pumpkins are also turnips because they carved turnips back then instead. I may have been pulled into helping with a kid's event doing turnip carving one year. It was fun. No one lost any fingers.

The shulker... just... what?
IT'S A HELLMOUTH XDDDDDD

I got the pack. Its amazing I just love the textures and it blends in well with rustic and medival buildings. It is a medival pack. But great work I hope you make more :)
I didn't see anything about servers in your TOS. Would you be alright with a server using a Wolfhound pack as their automatically-installed pack, or would you prefer having players download it from you?

I should update the TOS. Go ahead and use it. I prefer people to download from me so they don't miss updates, but with a server you'd be keeping it up-to-date. So that's fine. Enjoy!

Can you implement ctm or connected textures into this texture pack. Frequently generated terrain blocks often look tiled without ctm - even random rotations would do the job. I also recommend you use metadatas, which are unused block datas textured by optifine and can be supplied by any pack - The only downfall to this is your client must be 1.7.0-1.7.10 with Optifine installed. If you want an example of these game changing features go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsbnOcoFJlk

I hope this suggestion was useful; great texturers like you should know about metadatas as they really improve the pack as we see with Conquest by almighty Monsterfish.

I prefer to keep my texture packs as accessible as possible, and that means keeping them current with the latest release and not dependent on any mods. I do permit others to alter the pack for mods if they like, and there have been people that maintain mod-ready versions of Wolfhound. But honestly, the biggest reason for why I don't want to mess around with optifine is because I make these packs to improve my game, and I really don't care to use optifine at all. So it's not worth it to me to do anything with it.

Ok, it was just a suggestion, I would still download the pack anyway!

This is seriously impressive, especially for only being 64x64. Also, I don't think I've ever seen much symbology used in another medieval pack before. It definitely adds to the experience.
Lovely.  Why didn't I use this earlier? It's beautiful!

Is there music with this as well or is it just a texture pack?

This is so amazing this is definitely one of my favs without a doubt your whole wolfhound series has to be one of the most impressive on PMC and I would love to use your texture packs for my maps giving you credit of course and a link on my page to your texture pack i use if that is okay with you.

the facts you added to this texture pack are very interesting!
I sense +1 diamonds in your future.

I like the texture pack, but the sword handles look like they are just jabbed into their hand (I am talking about the whole bottom of the sord btw).

One thing I've noticed is most aren't even finished, I'd sworn they'd been finished, can't wait for it to be finished now. O.O

It's because the pack these are derived from IS finished, and if I haven't done the textures for this specific pack, I fill in with the default Wolfhound stuff. That way it always looks finished even if I'm not technically "done" with it yet.

How come it says 60% done in the additional credits, just couldn't be bothered or you didn't have the time to change it?
