Hello everyone, inspired by Tibyon and Morhlis texture pack of a classic 8-bit castlevania i decided to go ahead and make my own texture pack using many elements from retro games here is a video review of my texture pack
VIDEO REVIEW For CV Classic
The texture pack used here was from Pre-release so a lot of things have been added since his review
cant play a castlevania texture pack with no castlevania related skins OAO! thanks to tolle for the great support and making these skins, i would also like to extend my thanks to him for giving a lot of suggestions for this pack and taking his valuable time doing these skins thanks again friend :3
SPECIAL THANKS TO
Morhils: when i saw his texture pack i started using it a lot, but as great as it was i wanted to upgrade the texture of everything he did, thus i am creditting him for the inspiration of doing this texture pack, that and the fact he no longer updates the texture pack, hopefuly many of his fellow Castlevania fans drop by and give mine a chance <:3
Tolle: for giving us all the great player skins
Albert AKA CastlevaniaFan: for providing me suggestions on doors and mobs
Qazz: for giving me tips on what to use for items and keeping me updated with notch minecraft updates
Also if you have any suggestions from what you see here or any idea for the Castlevania texture pack go ahead and post the idea i will include it in just for you :3!
sadly castlevania is the 1 nintendo series I don't know that good
but i'f you don't have anything for ghasts yet then I suggest a medusa head
Keep up de good work though
hmm im starting to think thats why my castlevania related stuff isnt getting much attention here, i guess minecraft players arent very in common with the Castlevania series, i have read many post saying that there either not into this or dont know about the game, oh the ghast are currently the medusa but i need to upgrade it into a SNES quality i was also thinking of making the Ghast into a Dracula kind of skin hehe he would look like a square chibi monster but still would give him that demonic face, still thank you for the comment and suggestion :3
Glad to see another castlevania pack.....also if your wondering why your not getting much attention its because there is one out already that and it should have more screneies :3
ps: get more mirrors....i hate mega-upload =S
1 other thing...why does a shovel look like a sword?
the dirt looks great
but the wooden planks need work :/ yellow doesn't fit them well
PM me when this updates more :3
i understand that makes a lot more sense knowing theres actually 3 castlevania texture packs i have noticed in the forusm...not sure if theres more though, alright i know just the picture im missing the usual pyramid of blocks XDD your right ill get working on that pic and post it,
oh and well dont you find it cliche that every single texture pack has shovels? i felt like i wanted to take advantage of those slots to add more "weapons" besides anyone hardly uses shovels so i was hoping to make them look cool while using them to Murder dirt blocks....because you know...dirt is evil OAO!! hehe
hmm...i could use the tree pallet on the wooden planks the reason they look like that was for the particular stages im doing, but i could make them more brown instead of orange alright ill work on it :3
please make the swords whips :biggrin.gif:, also i downloaded it ( all i need is 1.6.6 and castlevania in the name and im on it ! )
i want to thank you for downloading my upgrade pack :3
i actually have Tolle, the wooden sword is the powerless whip, the stone sword is Trevors whip, the iron sword is the vampire killer or full upgrade, the diamond sword, is Alucards sword and the golden sword is just some cool looking blade hehe,
im not sure what you mean with 1.6.6 my only guess is you havent updated or i should add that this pack is for 1.6.6 in the title....which would be a good idea i hope this is what you ment 83
u know how i would love u to do?....make alucard sword for the gold and for the daimond....THE FLAMEWHIP!!!! PLEASE I LUVE THAT ****ING THING >.< Also please change the torch, the blue flame mixed with the orange flame makes it look really odd and unpleasant :C
hmm...that would mean the zombie pigmen would have alucards sword...and making alucards sword the most useless weapon in the game XDD alright you know whatz i can do all of this by adding "pick your own weapon" one for the flamewhip and one for the classic sword wielding lovers, because i do admit i enjoy the flamewhip aswell, but...the flame is gonna look akward dont you think? ill give it a shot and let you be the judge :3
The pigmen's texture looks almost the same as the texture I'm working on for my own rpgtexturepack :ohmy.gif:...Except mine's on the zombie :tongue.gif:...
Was this chapter before or after symphony of the night? Because the Gui looks like sotn :smile.gif:
Noyce work btw :smile.gif:
hehe its completly by coincidence, i am basing my zombie pigmen of the 3rd stage boss in the Castlevania series, and you my friend have a very good eye, Rondo of blood doesnt really have a gui other than the main menu, so i combined Sotn gui textures for this one, i really really love how the chest looks hehe, thank you for the compliment im glad you liked it X3
I'm familiar with some Castlevania stuff on the N64, but not the 8-bit stuff, just the 3d stuff. Though, I do like horror/vampire themed stuff, so cool!
well this was originaly going to be a big castlevania compilation hmm...i should change the title to something more fitting because a lot of the textures are from different castlevania games, so it isnt exactly a full Rondo of blood texture pack, and thank you for the approve its really appreciated X3
also plz fix gravel, i can almost not see the diffrence from it and the dirt, DONT FORGET THE TORCHES
i finaly fixed the gravel it looks even better now and more like gravel actually hehe, and i also fixed the torches thank you for that suggestion, i liked how blue flames looked but orange looks just as nice :3
can you add support for premium wood? also fix the art ( use craftslvania 2.8.7 art ) and fix pumpkins, would love that. Also make the bow a knife ( since u throw knives )
premium wood? i have not heard of that one is it a mod? oh right im going to add new paintings on the next update the only reason why they are so repetitive is because of a custom map i was doing but now that im not continuing the Castlevania custom map, ill fix those paintings, also giving you a minecraft forum version of a thumbs up XD, these are great suggestion im glad i am at least making this for more than just myself, i hope you love the new download upgrades :3!
oh snapz i was so focused doing another texture update that i completly forgot about the new pistons, ill get them added pretty soon, but now i gotta do sheers....wonder what new tool should i add for that o. oII, im gonna have it ready by tomorrow hopefuly, thanks for reminding me tolle
also ..TRY to make the bow a hand that holds a knife, look more real. Also with the new update im in LOVE with the texture pack ( using it nonstop now ) u made an awesome job, cant wait for the art to be added :biggrin.gif:
hehe but what happens when you desperatly punch a zombie who got to close to your sniping? wouldnt it be rebundant seeing a fist, holding a fist, holding a knife, throwing a knife? hehe XD actually i was just doing something new, you know how all of the castlevanias theres magic? why not a magic book for the bow that fires...Fire bolts 8D?, oh and for you to love even more the pack i updated it just as you wanted me too, pistons and shears have been added, im looking up other desings for shears though to make it look more castlevania-ish
and a custom piston texture too, im really happy you love this texture pack im finding it hard to replace it too....for obvious reasons hehe XD
the one series of games for the NES to the current that follows a relative storyline.
Unlike say Zelda, whose storyline is broken to hell.
Anyway nice pack you got going here.
hehe i know right? but kind of bad Konami is starting to mees around with the storyline this is because of Castlevania Legends being kicked out and Lord of shadows not being part of the story mainly because of how it ends, but then again Konami has always made Spin-offs of their own eries so its not that bad, still thank you for the support im glad you like what you see :3
D8 wait ****ed up good? or ****ed up bad DX!, i really love how the GUI looks the only thing i did notice is bad is that the text like "chest" looks weird in a red background, oh wait do you mean the inventory GUI? because i did notice the items dont align very well and im fixing that in the next update along side adding the art :3, thanks again man i appreciate your support and suggestions, wish my Castlevania map got this much support XDD
the items dont get in the boxees, also the health is a little hard to see 0_0 cant really understand it...also...mabye try holy cross as the bow? ( mabye make option to have it or the bow that shots liitle knives that dont really makes sence in castlevania....>.< But only so u know...U made an awesome pack i LUVE IT
yup i noticed those items dont get allign very well, im already working on it, but i think im going to make a better inventory GUI for that one, and the health is confusing? o. o? that weird its model exactly the same as the first castlevania even Morhlis used the same health system, i only upgraded those sprites to look more 16-bit i was going for a health bar like but with how the icon.png works its not easy to make a health look like all the other castlevania games, ill give a shot maybe you will prefer that style better
hehe i know im sorry a bow firing knifes is akward XD i dont know what curse i was in to do such a desicion, ok ill do both actualy then a magic book casting fire bolts, and Cross firing holy energy :3, and im glad you like the texture pack thats why im listening to your suggestions since your my only supporter at the moment hehe XD
also, have u tried making a simon belmont skin? if u wanto i can make either simon or richter ( chose wathever u want ) and ill make it for yah ;D
Edit: I now made Simon Belmont and Richter Belmont
actuslly i was thinking about doing the skins, you see each armor set is a belmont so i was thinking to make a skin where its a dude shirtless with some black boxers, and as you put on the armor you would look like a belmont, but then i thought that would be to much like arthur from the ghouls and ghost series hehe XD and aww man sorry for late replying since you already did both of them XDD can i see them :3? i will add them in the pack im already going to add your name for giving me support thank you Tolle well im off to work when i come back ill post the new upgraded link with paintings fully updated 8D!
I also got some stuff to tell yah, the bed is bugged so u cant see the downside, also having swords as a shovel is making me so crazy
the bed actually happens in all texture packs right now, im not sure what notch did, i will try to experiment whats causing this so i can fix it because it looks really bad D:
hehe someone else did ask me why in the heck shovels are weapons, i dunno i just liked hitting mobs with them, but i guess thats not a good idea, for now enjoy the new updates as im going to make Castlevania-like shovels for this texture pack :3 and yes now we have paintings 8D!
Awesome :biggrin.gif:, also is it possible making the holy cross shoting holy crosses? or does the arrow png not allows it?, but finally, no more bows that shots small super powered knives that kills skeletons in one hit 8D. Also i made some fixes on the skins will upload them soon.
its all thanks to you really your making my thread be active and i noticed an increase in downloads they were at 10 when i open this in beta, now its up to 50+ downloads thanks to your suggestions and constant feed back, and for you ill add anything you want too in this pack, umm nothing is impossible for me friend ill add holy crosses instead if thats what you want :3
and yes finaly we can rejoice that a Belmont isnt being cheap and using knifes instead of arrows hehe XD oh sweet cant wait to see the new skins im glad you added sonia belmont she was my favorite of belmonts...aside from being an attractive girl to me back in my childhood hehe XD
Yes, its really sad they removed her and added her in a gameboy only game :C, also i now notice ur texture pack is not the only one with the bed bug ( i use like a hundred diffrent texture packs XD, seems as notch ****ed up something in the update...darn it :dry.gif:
muahaha well notch has nothing aggaints me, download the new update on the link, the beds have been succesfuly fixed >:3 i also added a new shovel desings i still kept the iron shovel because thats the only one that did look like a shovel...mini one XD, and the golden shovel is supose to be a joke kinda like all gold items hehe oh and i added Cross arrows for you to fire at enemies and purify them :3, they do look kind of akward because of how arrows work basicly it takes the image and puts them together in a X when rendering, but when you look at it in profile it looks amazing 83, thank you again for downloading and making the skins :3
If anything is wrong please tell me, cant improve them mutch more :C, next up will be Leon Belmont.
I reapeat if u see anything wrong in the skins tell me and i will fix it.
hehe to be honest i didnt really see what was so wrong in the first skins you did, i do see you made sonias hair longer, simons belt more clear and ritcher i cant even tell, they look just fine the first time you made them i especialy like ritchers the most, sonia comes in second only because i would need the charlotte mod or the female skin mod to make it look even better hehe its kinda sad seeing such a woman being flat chested by minecraft XD
oh and i will take your links and post them in the front page so people can see and download your skins :3 because as i said they looked amazing the first time hehe X3
This is neat :ohmy.gif: Now if only someone did Super Castlevania IV, I'd be a really happy camper. :laugh.gif:
umm i am missing some blocks to change into a Castlevania feel, maybe i can add a cameo of super castlevania in there just for you <:3 because i surely wont have enough time to make you a happy camper >:, but a little memorial that i can do hehe
Im glad u liked them :biggrin.gif:, also richter i just fixed so that the hair and stuff look better at the back when u look down in 3rd person. But yea...flat chested sonia is a little sad since she got so nice pair of water melons
hehe definetly thats proably why she was my favorite belmont, even more when she became a MILF to me e3e....but umm lets not go on that subject here in the forums hahah, on other news
Whoo 100+ downloads 8D! as a special celebration all Hostile mobs have been skin editten into a castlevania enemy >:3, Skelingtons are now Dark priest, and spiders are Robot androids OAO!
i need to change Ghast into something else than Medusas or maybe just upgrade the medusa head
anyways thank you all the 100 people who have downloaded if theres anything you want to suggest heck even post if its bad i just want to know what the community thinks please leave a comment :3, thanks again and more updates soon to come >:3
got one last update comming soon havent been able to do much, this is because im focusing my map on something special i will post a pic pretty soon of what this is, basicly its just something that will make this texture pack really useful :3
