Ever felt that MineCraft was missing something? new armor? more food variants? Or more animals? Well this pack adds none of those... but what it does add is all four seasons, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
All plants, trees, crops... everything is affected by the bright blossoming colors of spring, turns to a lushes green in the summer then slowly wilts away in the fall, and freezes in the winter.
I decided to make this pack after trying to find one myself but there was next to none... and the ones that did exist, didn't really bring the full capabilities that the seasons have to offer. I really wanted to see everything as far as sugar cane and potatoes change through the seasons, so I made my own texture pack.
At first being completely new to making resource/texture packs I started off using the default textures, but realizing that altering them and re-releasing them was against the rules. I dedicated some time to completely start from scratch. My main goal was to try and keep the style and color as similar to the default textures so that it blends nicely with the rest of the game.
Making this pack was a lot of fun for my first time(twss) and I'm pretty satisfied with what I've accomplished so far and also note that I will be adding a few more features to this pack which you can see in the 'future planned' spoiler of whats to come. I hope that many of you will enjoy this pack as much as I did making it.
In addition I've made this pack to maybe help bring adventure maps to life.

What you can do:
- Use it in videos and/or streams, provide a link to this thread
- Use for releasing adventure maps or servers and even sharing with others, provide a link back to this thread
- Alter/add textures for your own personal in-game experience. (If you want to suggest a change or submit a change to me so I can release it with future updates than that is fine)
What you can NOT do:
- Re-release this texture pack and/or claiming it as your own
- Releasing it with any ads or sites that would make you money
Note: If you still haven't downloaded and installed optifine, please do as some of the custom colors require it. Also recommend for better experience, use a shaders pack, which having optifine shouldnt be too much to handle.
I apologize for those who do not have a decent or beefy computer that may not be able to play with a shaders pack, but I've tested to make it look nice with just standard optifine installed. Please also play with fancy graphics settings on, will attempt to fix the looks of the leaf textures when playing on fast.
If anyone who is experienced in making resource/texture packs and would like to contribute in fixing any little issues and to be credited in production of future updates, please contact me via email or pm me: [email protected]
I want to try and allow less beefy computers to play with this resource pack with as much beauty as possible.
