Do you like Minecraft’s default textures, but think they could use a little sprucing up? If so, ThatCube’s resource pack titled DrawBridge may be for you! This pack will turn Minecraft into a slightly more medieval version of itself (even though Minecraft is quite medieval to begin with) without deviating too far from the original look!
This resource pack is completely up to date with 1.8, meaning that all blocks will have an updated appearance. As I said, nothing is too drastically different; the changes are subtle but charming:
Perhaps one of the most noticeable changes is to the villagers – they look a lot more human now, and have much more interesting clothing:
This change alone would almost warrant a download from me. Testificates creep me out. In the above screenshot you can also see the slightly altered grass, as well as the more detailed wood planks and cobblestone. Of course, this pack is 32×32, so for many it will seem significantly more so.
Now that the pack is completely caught up to Minecraft’s current version, the team behind DrawBridge is hosting polls to determine which mods to add native support for. This pack, while not incredibly unique or profound in nature, could definitely become popular. I might call it a “gateway pack” for Minecraft purists.
All in all, I award DrawBridge a score of eight out of ten testificates.
