This pack is meant to be a dark, Gothic, 1800's-themed pack that seamlessly incorporates various clockwork and slightly steampunk components without creating an overly industrial or metallic world.
The best thing to picture when thinking about what this pack is intended for is a large, old estate at dusk, with a large mansion surrounded by a wrought iron fence and with a mysterious stone-walled garden in the back. I want to incorporate fairy-tale like elements, mainly through the mobs. These won't be Disney creatures either, but dark, mysterious, and terrifying. The clockwork will present itself in some of the more mechanical blocks, mostly relating to redstone. The main building blocks will be either decorative and ornate or old and rustic. The natural world is meant to be slightly lighter than the manufactured world, meant to give a sense of "mysterious woods."
This pack is very unfinished, and despite my best efforts to the contrary, there are many blocks that I wish to redo before release.
If you are interested in a version of RudoPlay's shader tweaked for this texture pack, it can be found here thanks to Celer.
I feel like the ores should be a bit larger for better visibility, but good work so far. The textures themselves look pretty good, but some look a tad bit too dark.
I personally find the brightness to be perfect for the theme, I love how dark it is. But I do agree that the ores should be more prominent. Scratch that, I took a second look, and that's realism right there, folks! The ores actually look perfect!
The textures look and feel amazing! They truly do have a Victorian feel. Very well done!
Wow, I love the detail and the dark style of it all. I'm a big fan of dark, high-contrast texture packs which depict a more worn, lived-in world. I also like that, while the pack is sort of themed, it's not too overbearingly steampunk and could work for many types of environments. The redstone lamps are especially impressive and just what I want. Hoping to see some grating on the trap doors and iron doors, that would be great.
