Candy! Colored eggs! Animals that look like candy! Do you need more convincing?
Celebrating festivities by changing the look of in-game content is a long tradition followed by many game developers. Thanks to Minecraft’s widely diverse modding community, this game is no exception. Allow me to introduce you to DaHooplerzMan’s Easter themed texture pack.
Various textures are changed in this pack to help you or your server celebrate Easter the way it was meant to be: punching trees and getting knocked into endless pits of lava by skeletons!
First off are the eggs. What would Easter be without an egg hunt? Diamonds and emeralds already look like eggs, but other objects were retextured to add more flavor to the world:
Next are the animals. The obvious one is that chickens are turned into Peeps:
But also, cows will appear to be chocolate bunnies (milk chocolate, for those of you who are allergic) and pigs look like the Easter bunny! On that note, why doesn’t vanilla Minecraft have bunnies?
Moving on: since chickens are now peeps, it only makes sense that chicken meat would be a marshmallow. Feathers, charcoal, magma cream and golden nuggets were also all changed to be more festive:
If you’re still not convinced, there are many more textures not mentioned within this post. Download it and find out for yourself!
