"Isabella II is a reworked version of Isabella (now called Isabella Classic.) It offers the same melancholic feel but with brighter visuals, improving the experience on a wider range of monitors." - Bonemouse
Isabella II is a texture pack that is dear to many, and, as its original author Bonemouse is no longer at the helm, an organised map of where all these textures have branched to is somewhat lost to time. So, as has been suggested by many in the archaic and somewhat abandoned continuation thread, here is a new landmark for those pilgrims seeking to find Isabella II once more.
"This pack uses textures created by bonemouse between beta 1.6 and the 1.0 preview versions. The style of Isabella Classic was changing quite a bit from version to version back then. Some blocks will be very familiar, others may not. I didn't edit any of them, I just mixed and matched block variants with similar styles from each version until I had something cohesive. This version doesn't use the MCPatcher features, so you can use it with your vanilla launcher."
Melds the lightness of Isabella II with the Classic darkness, by zobrux!
"Is Isabella Retro just too dark? Do you want some of the slightly newer textures while still keeping the early-beta quirks (and compatible chests, color maps, etc)? You might prefer Isabella II Retro."
Modelled winter foliage textures and more by zobrux!
If you have a pack you'd like to have added to this list, PM me or leave a reply below.
As always, Optifine is recommended to make the most out of Isabella II.
Also, feel free to contribute any textures you have inspiration for. I, yurisuika, do not consider myself a good or even mediocre texture artist, so anybody who loves this pack and can help out is always appreciated!
For anyone wondering, SuikaCraft's 1.11 progress is mainly hindering on some of the entities, of which I haven't had any inspiration yet. Other blocks and stuff have been completed to an ostensible point. You can still download it and check out what is done so far...
Uses Wedhro's no-lag fluffy leaf model, some lightly modified SuikaCraft leaf textures, and a different leaf color palette:
Uses yurisuika's alternate pumpkin/lantern textures, alternate tallgrass textures, vine models [edit: removed due to lag around vine farms], and waterlily texture/models without Optifine or extra packs. Uses rotated textures on double wooden slabs, and small stone brick textures on double stone brick slabs:
Uses the log (or netherrack) texture for fence posts:
Other small tweaks and fixes:
-Shield decorations are now properly aligned, instead of some being offset
-Shields now take up less of the screen from first-person view
-Jukeboxes show when they have a disc in them
-Observer blocks have a proper "activated" texture
-Additional thunder, fire, and water sounds
-Spookier ghast sounds
-A different font for better visibility
-A couple of other visibility tweaks and blockstate fixes
Just wanted to say thank you for continuing this fantastic resource pack, and that, so far, you've done an oustanding work updating it and adding textures. Again, thanks, and I hope you can update it as time goes on.
Thank you for providing a stable home for those of us who love Isabella.
One small note: Thanks for the mention above, but I deserve little of the credit for modded updates other than copy/pasting the textures I've collected over the years. I update as I can for mods I'm using, and anyone is free to pull from my github as linked above, but I don't want to give the impression that I'm doing all the work.
Thank you so, so, so much for this. After swapping to the Console Edition for a while, I've just gotten back into "proper" Minecraft with some friends, having reactivated our Realms server. I've dabbled with Doku, but my absolute favorite pack of all time was the original Isabella, and I followed through its discontinuation and partial revival and lost touch after 1.8ish when I couldn't find any updates for a while.
Now there's this. Now all the best memories are coming back. Now it's my Minecraft again.
