This is an attempt to continue Snugtr's Texture Pack. This post would mainly be from the original topic above. Without further ado, I present to you Moderncraft: Generation II !
Don't you just hate fantasy?
Fantasy is boring. It's all about a hero killing dragons or rescuing princesses. And in the end, the hero gets a big reward from some autocratic ruler, and spends the rest of his life living with said princess.
Certainly in the past these may have been difficult tasks, but today the nobility is all but abolished, and while the bad guy's magical armor may be said to able to withstand a blow from any weapon known to man, the fact is that when the mystical warlock wrought the armor from steel and fairy dust, man didn't know about C4. Boom. Dead.
It is with this in mind that I present:
Moderncraft is for people who can't take the fantasy aspect of Minecraft. It replaces many of the fantastical elements of Minecraft and replaces them with normal things that exist today. Other, more timeless things, like brick and stone, remain roughly the same.
Let's take a look:
Cobblestone? What is this, 18th century England? Who uses cobblestone for serious purposes anymore?Cobblestone has been changed to Cinderblock.
Redstone? What, you mean like rubies? Rubies don't carry a current, man. Redstone has been changed to Copper. Copper wires carry electricity. It's that simple, really.
Netherrack? What does that even mean? No one knows. Netherrack is now some kind of Red Marble. It looks nice as trim, I think.
Soul Sand: what the hell does that even mean anyway? Why do souls slow me down? Is it their spiritual baggage or something? The weight of my sins? I don't follow it. Soul Sand is now Cautionblock. Cautionblock makes you more cautious, so you slow down.
Glowstone? What kind of stone glows? It's like something out of that film about the naked blue people. Honestly. Glowstone has been changed to Fluorescents.
Wooden Ladders? And I suppose you want me to cross one of those rope-and-plank bridges that could be brought down by an overweight bumble bee, too? Wooden Ladders have been replaced by Steel Ladders.
Torches? What am I, a caveman? Ordinarily I'd suggest the more practical fluorescents, but if you need lighting in a pinch, here are Lightbulbs on Poles:
Wooden Doors? How am I supposed to find out what's outside if there's wood in my face? Wooden Doors are now Glass Doors.
Minecart Tracks? With wooden ties? This is 2013, man. You can't build with wooden ties now. Minecart track ties are now made of concrete.Bonus: Good looking diagonals now possible.
Chests? Who still has big hulking chests lying around? They're expensive and difficult to transport. Why not just swipe some big old unused cardboard boxes from a southbound freight and dump things in them instead?
The idea of a modern resource pack is not new. But your pack does look pretty nice. Good job!
It was new at the time. It isn't a new pack either, this is a continuation.
@OP, I think you should specify that in the title. Dokucraft's continuation is "The Saga Continues", Ovo's Rustic is "Redemption", some other ones have used continuation, reloaded, revolution, etc. I think you should have something like that for yours. Perhaps "Moderncraft: the Return", "Moderncraft: the Next Generation", or something else.
Also, are you getting permission to make a continuation?
OH MY GOD I HAVE FOUND YOU
I found the original Moderncraft thread a few months ago and I was so sad to see it being discontinued and I've been looking for continuation since then.
And now I finally found you, I am so happy right now I can hardly express my happiness
Moderncraft is such a great modern pack with its unique style and it definitely deserve much more attention.
Good job on continuing the pack, I love you mate! (no homo)
I applaud this texture pack, I've been looking for a continuation of ModernCraft ever since it's stopped updating. Some of the textures don't fit in perfectly (I don't remember minecarts looking like that, tools should be powertools) but nonetheless very nice job, this texture pack deserves more recognition. Are you taking suggestions?
