There’s something special about using battered old things. They’re old and may have been used by people for hundreds of years. You can almost feel the history dripping off old things.
If you’re the kind of person who enjoys using old, worn-out things, then you may like the Battered Old Stuff texture pack for Minecraft. This texture pack retextures most of vanilla Minecraft in order to make it older and more battered-looking than ever before.
This isn’t your typical texture pack. The texture pack’s creator hasn’t just faded a few textures, added some scratch marks, and called it a day. Instead, he has put a significant amount of effort into faithfully recreating 64×64 (as well as 32×32) versions of most of the textures in the Minecraft world.
Wooden blocks now show their age and feature peeling effects, for example, while old-timey Pepsi-Cola signs can be spotted. Redstone machines look almost Steampunk-ish, and even the ores have been changed to make them look like they’re from an age long ago.
One of the best parts about the Battered Old Stuff texture pack is its support of other similar mods, including BetterStorage, BuildCraft, ComputerCraft, Easy Crafting, Ender Storage, Factorization, IndustrialCraft, and more. If you want to play Minecraft as a slave-driving factory owner in the 1900s, then you can do that with these mods and Battered Old Stuff installed.
Some texture packs look a lot like vanilla Minecraft. Others completely change the appearance of the game. The Battered Old Stuff texture pack is somewhere in between – it’s distinctly different from vanilla Minecraft but not so different that you can’t tell which things are which. It’s like you’re playing a 100 year old version of Minecraft. And that’s certainly not a bad thing.
