VectorPak Texture Pack for Minecraft 1.7.10

In the beginning, Minecraft was a revolution in the gaming world in two ways: its graphics and its gameplay.  Many advancements have been made to distance the world’s technology from simplistic, pixellated graphics, yet some games embraced this retro style of making art.  Minecraft was among the first to fully do so in 3D.

 

Some may say Minecraft’s charm comes from its graphics, but others disagree.  User lukarikid9001 has created the VectorPak, a texture pack made up of sharp, modern-looking vector graphics, bringing a fresh look to the game.

As you can see from the above graphic, this pack is not yet complete – it is very much a work in progress.  Nonetheless, it shows promise.

 

My favorite part of this pack is that while it sharpens the graphics through vectorization, it retains the original feel of the game.  The style of execution may be different, but overall each block still feels the same.  Most are immediately recognizable for what they are meant to be.

 

As of today (July 30th), the following blocks have been textured (list taken from the pack’s PlanetMinecraft page):

 

  • all states of anvil

  • beacon

  • bed

  • bedrock

  • bookshelf

  • brewing stand

  • cracks (when destroying a block)

  • dirt

  • side of grass block

  • grass overlay

  • oak wood planks

  • stone

  • all ores except for lapis and quartz

  • spruce wood planks

  • pack logo

 

Download the pack and check out the above blocks!  This is a submission worth keeping your eye on.
