    posted a message on refinedCraft 1.0 - Less is More

    I made this texture pack for myself, to fill a need, but a few of my friends liked it enough that I've decided to share.

    When I first discovered texture packs, I thought it was quite cool, but I felt that just about every pack was a complete divergence from the original feel of Minecraft, replacing Notch's style rather than complimenting it. To remedy this, I set out to create a texture pack that would enhance the feel of Minecraft, without turning it into Zelda, Halo, Generic JRPG XXVII, Mario, or Minecraft HD1080 XXTreme.

    Less is more. Minecraft looks great as is, and better with a few tweaks. Full on SNES rpg style conversion? Ew.
    If you agree, perhaps this is the texture pack for you. It is a compilation of bits and pieces from various packs that I found worked together well, in 16x16, with small tweaks here and there I did on my own. The goal of this pack is to slightly tune the original Minecraft look to be warmer, and more suited to long term play, without being an overhaul.

    This is a living modification, that will grow and update with Minecraft as I tune it to my taste.
