I think that the default Minecraft is ugly. Notch’s brainchild has been out for a while, and if you’ve been playing it for even a fraction of its lifetime, you’re probably over the whole nondescript-block-world thing. Even if you’re not, I am, and I’m here to share with you a solution to the six-sided homogeneity of Minecraft’s default world.
Overhauling Minecraft’s… unique aesthetic is going to take more than one mod – we’re only going to take on two today, but there are plenty more mods and textures out there to continue upgrading your visual experience.
The texture of free minecraft accounts 2020 is great to have the right results. The visual experience of the players is great with the creation of the account. The conquering of the quest is great with the great skills. The use of the right knowledge is necessary.
Let’s tackle those pecky cubes first, and then we can conquer the butt-ugly vanilla textures. Though Minecraft’s blocks are endearing and have become representative of the game, they’re not that pretty to look at. On more than one occasion I’ve been trying to roleplay as an adventurer in Middle Earth, only to be forcibly rent from my immersion by the Lego-esque nature of the landscape. Well, no more.
The term ‘smooth surfaces’ does not resonate in the Minecraft world, unless, of course, you’re referring to the planar surfaces of the blocks that make it up. Besides those and the occasional expanse of water, Minecraftia is chunkier than it is clean. However, with the No Cubes (Smooth Terrain) mod, the world takes on a sleek, angular look that is much more appealing to the eye.
If you’ve been playing for a while, you’ve definitely gotten used to square caves and mountains like piles of building blocks. This mod is revolutionary in that it revamps the entire Minecraft world, rounding caves, mountain-tops, and even The End to a nice, smooth curve.
The No Blocks (Smooth Terrain) mod affects only natural blocks, meaning your buildings will remain building-like. They won’t turn into immense phallic towers that penetrate the sky in a rather suggestive fashion – if you’re into that stuff, I’m sure there’s a mod for it.
Isn’t that just beautiful? Yes, yes it is – and it only gets more so from here. After you have the No Cubes mod and you set out to roam your new, smooth world, you may find that it was not only the blocky shapes of the world that were insipid, but also the blocks’ textures.
Now, there’s a ton of texture packs out there – you may even have a few yourself – but I daresay that none are as generally brilliant as Glowstrontium’s John Smith Legacy Mod. It gives each block a more rustic, realistic feel, and it only clocks in at a resolution of 32×32. For those of you who have computers that huff and puff at all the 128×128 texture packs floating around, this is the perfect pack for you.
The John Smith Legacy pack proves that HD textures don’t require 512×512 resolutions (with each pixel hand-painted by Michelangelo) to be beautiful. It adds the perfect amount of detail without making each block look like a photo-cube. Simplicity rules the design of this mod, and as a result it perfectly augments the existing aesthetic of Minecraft. Check it:
Ooooh yeah… that’s the stuff. Now the real magic happens when you combine these mods to make a smooth, nicely rendered world. There is a bit of a snag, though – No Blocks is available for 1.7.10 and before, whereas the John Smith Pack is up and running for 1.8. All this means is, to use both, you must be running Minecraft 1.7.10 and download an older version of the John Smith pack. No problem at all! And definitely worth it.
