NephCO Laboratories: Biological Textures Texture Pack

Allow me to begin by stating simply: this texture pack WILL impress you.  With every other visionary making nothing more than a simple recoloring of their favorite textures, some subtle Photoshop manipulations, or simply badly done original textures, it’s refreshing to find some truly unique and polished texture packs such as those I have been reviewing recently.

PlanetMinecraft user Nephco presents us with her incredible texture pack, NephCO Laboratories: Biological Textures.

The most striking thing about this texture pack right from the start is the level of realism:


Look like a photograph?  Unsurprisingly, it is: Nephco used photographs for many of these textures.  Others were hand drawn, painted, and edited.


Some of my favorite new textures in this pack are the bookshelves and enchanting table:




Along with some seriously impressive looking cows:




Some of the textures in this pack are also animated, which is something I haven’t seen done well in a long time.  I am seriously impressed by the work of Nephco and hope to see her continue this project.  Download the pack and take a look at it for yourself!
