One of the nice things about Minecraft is the ability to switch in new texture packs to breathe new life into the world you inhabit. For months now I’ve used the JohnSmith Texture Pack, which retained the “feel” of the original textures while imbuing them with greater detail.
Tonight I was directed to the Sphax PureDBCraftx128 texture pack, which gives everything in Minecraft a distinct cel-shaded style that feels like something out of a comic book. The picture doesn’t really do it justice, but suffice to say it looks amazing in-game.
Both packs are excellent, it’s really just a matter of what kind of “flavour” you want the world to have. Ah, the joys of the modding community!
