GrungeBDcraft is the first variation of PureBDcraft.
When PureBDcraft is cartoony, clean and smooth, GrungeBDcraft is semi-realistic, noisy and dirty.
It is still a work in progress and doesn't have all textures for Minecraft. If you like it and want to play with it, you can mix it with PureBDcraft (without ctm folder) to get a fully playable Grunge experience. GrungeBDcraft is very detailed and it's recommended to use the maximum resolution your computer can handle.Note: Knowing this texture pack is still a WIP, you should know that it will be updated progressively.
So, if you like it, be patient for next updates and do not hesitate to post feedback. However, GrungeBDcraft have most of the blocks done.

I always toss up between this and something like R3DCraft but now i don't have to. You've done a great job Sphax.
Edit: Make a banner for this so we can help spread the word, also make the lava more sphaxified. I'm just saying cause it looks like it belongs more in lb photo realism. Only thing i can really complain about.
I'm loving it! It keeps the general cartoony-ness of PureBDcraft, but adds a little touch of realism that is just spectacular. I think, though, that the cartoony-ness on some of the blocks is still a little too evident. It looks, in some places, like raw texture was just painted over the old cartoon-style textures, kind of like how R3D.Craft works. I'm not saying it doesn't look good, I just haven't seen too many people successfully pull that look off. I take it back. As soon as those close-ups were posted, my jaw hit the floor.
But that's just my opinion. I'll be very interested to see where you take this with the rest of the pack!
Very well done! Can't wait to see the pack finished. It is a nice departure from the cartoony "glossiness" that you find in regular Sphax. Can't wait to see this grow, and this topic will probably explode within the next few days :).
So excited Sphax. Keep up the good work. And this is to the team too. I knew there would be something like this coming and I didn't think it would look this nice. Can't wait to see some awesome Patches for FTB coming because I can't wait!
Some closeup blocks are now viewable on the the main post (inside the spoiler). It also allows you to compare between GrungeBDcraft and PureBDcraft. This small preview is not as detailed as GrungeBDcraft is in 256x resolution or 512x.
Wow, you gone and outdone your self now did ya? And just when your "pure" one was really nice too. The only problem I see is that your ever-so-popular "pure" community will not be able to illustrate these new "grunge" feelings. The old cartoony art style was easy to replicate, but this new dark feel to it... not so sure if all those artists will continue to support this art style- this type of art requires experts, not hobbyist! In my own little world, your TP has always been #1 on all of MC TP, especially since your community was so big and strong, and so much mods were supported. When this is complete, I will probably try this out too- I'm hoping your mobs are scary looking and not cartoony at all like your "pure" style.
