Minecraft Texture Packs

In general, we enjoy the vanilla look of Minecraft: it’s simple and colorful. There are certainly some textures however that are not very pleasing to the eye; in particular, Glowstone and NPCs. Other textures just need minor tweaks to make them perfect.

The following are some of the retextures I’ve done, while attempting to keep the look of the original world. Click images for a much larger view – please do not redistribute:
Glass, Stained Glass, and associated Panes
Removed the majority of the reflection lines, making windows much easier to see through.

Brighter and smoother colors, matches well with the new clay blocks. Only a faint overlay remains from the original, lights no longer looks like scrambled egg vomit.

Iron Golems: Flattened the nose onto their face.

Villagers: Removed noses and unibrow. Gave them Steve’s face but changed the eye color and hair. Added hats.

Witch: Removed the unibrow. Gave it Steve’s face but changed the eye color and hair. Still ugly.

Zombie villager: Removed noses and unibrow. Gave it a Zombie’s face and hair. Added a hat.

Removed the unlit, carved face. Keep in mind though, this will also affect Snow Golem heads and Pumpkin helmets.

  1. Unzip the files to C:\Users\accountname\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\resourcepacks. (AppData is a hidden folder.)
  2. In Minecraft, enable the packs through the Options menu.

To remove a certain retexture from the NPC combo pack, simply navigate down into the NPCs folder and delete the particular folder or .png file.

    I’d find it better if you also removed the nose for the witches. It’s one of their features that make me afraid of them
