.....Glimmar's Steampunk v.15 Hybrid for MC 1.7.4

Ladies and Gentlemen! My name is Glimmar, and I have great pleasure in presenting to you my dark, alternative, Victorian sci-fi theme pack...I dare to call it Steampunk ...hence the title of my establishment... 'Glimmar's Steampunk'. If you are looking to build epic constructions in a retro-classical industrial style, then as proprietor and creator of this exhibition of fine artistic resources, I invite you to waste a moment of your time within. Bare witness to scenes of wonder, arcane devices and even [gasp] 'moving picture shows'! Step inside...

.....Introduction

It's been a long time in the making, and it's been around since the middle of 2010 here on the Texture Pack Section of the Minecraft Forums...making it one of the oldest texture packs still supported by it's original creator!

When using this pack, think like a 'megalomaniac' and dominate your world with cast iron, brass, copper, marble, tile, stone, brick and concrete! Many of my blocks and some paintings are animated, not just decoratively so, but in such a way as to make them useful for large scale builds...rotating wheels, cogs, flowing pulses of arcane energy, control panels, stained glass and much more. All the things you need to bring a secret lair, dirigible, nautilus submarine, battleship, fortress, city...your empire...to life!



Dignitaries. Chains & Gasmasks...

.....Do I Need Flying Goggles?

...If you're currently flying rather high and not in a pressurized cabin...get them on now, man! What were you thinking?! ...Pish posh! You don't need them to survive this pack. Just because the theme is Steampunk, doesn't mean it's all brass machines and cogs...though you'll certainly find plenty of those here. This pack also contains a very large collection of random plants and foliage and many classical, architectural 'connected textures' to make your retro blocky world as believable as can be.

In addition, I've worked hard to make textures which look good from any distance...with or without your monocle...and appropriate to the theme's time period, ie. unnaturally annoying repetitive patterns are kept to an absolute minimum, so those enormous flights of fanciful engineering don't look like chequered 'Harris Tweed' when hovering aloft in your private airship.



Temples, Tombs & Towers

.....Current Project Status

I am focused on upscaling my long established 32x pack to 64x and most new textures and animations I make are now first made at 64x. My latest version is a fully working 'Hybrid' 64x pack with some upscaled 32x terrain and item features from my original pack. I'm still missing an ender dragon I'm afraid, mostly because I just do not visit the end...sorry, but I will get round to it eventually!

Glimmar's Steampunk is packed with a large and growing number of animated blocks and 'Connected Textures'. This is very much a constant work in progress and I'm always trying to improve things where I can...when I can.

For those with more modest PCs there is now a 'Lite' version of Glimmar's Steampunk with no extra mobs, far fewer animations, but still with all the extra features to be found when using MCPatcher, such as 'connected textures' (CTM), biome and atmospheric colors and better skies for day and night. If you find the standard verison of the pack is too laggy for you, try out the 'Lite' version of my pack in the 'Downloads' section below.  This 'lighter' version may help some of you to squeez a few more FPS in game, but don't expect miracles. Other necessary MCPatcher embelishments like 'ctm', biome and atmospheric colours will all take their toll in the game.

To get the best out of this pack please install MCPatcher:  MCPatcher link.

Why do you still need MCPatcher when Minecraft now supports HD texture packs?
Spoiler:


Important: By downloading and/or using my 'Glimmar's Steampunk' texture pack, you agree and validate my licence and conditions of use, as laid out in my 'Legal'  section above.

I also view 'direct linking' or re-distribution as piracy. Direct links to my downloads are strictly forbidden...please link to my thread here instead.

My main download now links through adf.ly. I know some of you don't like this and I'm the same, I don't like ads or anything that delays me getting straight to a download, but after 3 years creating and supporting this pack with an immense amount of work and never using adf.ly or donation buttons throughout that period, I now find my circumstances have changed. To justify the large amount of time I'm having to spend on my pack, I'd be very grateful for 5 seconds of your time while you wait for adf.ly to connect you to my download page. However, I also provide direct download links to my Curse/Forge download page for those who do not wish to download through adf.ly. Many thanks to all of you who support my work on Glimmar's Steampunk.

I like the details, but it clashes with some of the more plain textures..
There's also some difference in contrast between blocks, like some blocks have black lines while others are rather bright or more dull, it's very skilled work but I think you need to look how it all matches together.

This looks absolutely fantastic.  This may very well usurp the Painterly Pack for me.  Excellent work. :Skeleton:  I'm really diggin' the lamps, doors, and crafting table.  The smoothstone looks a bit like gravel though, so you might want to make it darker or change it somehow.

The difference in constrast between the blocks may be down to the lights I placed around, but I am very much in agreement with what you say, Seiseki. This is where my inexperience as a pixel artist comes in! I find the individual elements like doors, forge, etc. a pleasure (kind of) to struggle with, but getting that relationship between the 'simple' building blocks like cobblestone and granite a real head and eye strain to get right, especially for this theme, and applaud anyone who pulls it off! Those repeating patterns are a curse!! You would not believe how many renditions of cobblestone I've worked through. Early stages yet...

I take your observations seriously and hope you'll look in again and see how things change. Thanks, Seiseki. :Glass:

ps. at the very worst if I eventually flunk the 'building' blocks I'll just release the individual elements like doors, iron, etc. for the community to use as they see fit, but for now I'll struggle on. Woe is me!  :iapprove:

I'm getting good feedback and appreciating the observations from everyone. Many thanks, Gazoinks, there's definately lots to get right here in the relationship between those prime building blocks and my pics are probably not the best, but hopefully I'll get there. Just nice to see there is an interest in a Steampunk theme. :D

Huge fan of the green torches, look a lot more mystical that Red.

Are you going to do items, too? That'd be the best selling point, as Minecraft's gameplay doesn't generally lend itself towards a steampunk-ish atmosphere.
