The thing is, at the moment I'm not sure how much use a rather blank concrete block would actually have in the pack. Between the wool, the stained clay (which in this pack more closely match the wool than they do in vanilla) and then the concrete powder which I'm also making have a somewhat smoother texture, I feel like there are enough smooth/colourful blocks to build with.
As such I think I will add a unique design to each of the concrete blocks to provide more variety when building which is always a good thing imo!
I'm not sure if I'm going to do each block as a wood/plaster style block, I do want to make a few different building styles more accessible with the blocks, just have to figure out exactly what designs I should do for each!
I think I'm going to be taking a look at some of the blocks from the conquest resource pack for inspiration here because monsterfish has made a bunch of different blocks in different colours that are useful for building. I'll also try and implement a bit of ctm to enhance the blocks further too.
My terracotta blocks are going to be a bit more similar to vanilla except I'll try and make their textures more representative of their specific colours (so black will be 90% black instead of half black and red in vanilla, etc.). I also want the patterns to be a bit more subtle so that they can be used in more situations without looking quite so jarring next to other blocks.
