minecraft 1.9

We’ll be releasing ACME Resource Pack for Minecraft 1.11 tomorrow, but in the meantime, all previous version of the resource and texture packs have been updated with our new artwork.

Enjoy!

Tumbleberry and I hit some new milestones this year (in addition to the texture pack exceeding two million downloads), and encountered new frustrations with our existing tools. Inkscape is a blessing to be certain, but when the artist has to compromise their own work for the sake of the tool, it’s no longer doing its job. I am making the arduous transition to Illustrator so that our plans can go ahead uncompromised.

Meanwhile Mojang updated Minecraft to version 1.9 with combat functionality, and no apparent plans to complete adventure mode. There’s a parallel there and it lays between Cubeworld and Minecraft’s inability to realize a procedurally generated world with fully fleshed out quest-based gameplay.

I’ll lay it out that this is too much to ask for the inexperienced Indie, but now that Mojang no longer falls under that category, we may yet see a major overhaul of adventure mode. I’m going to side with George Wiedman on this: Player experience will “tell a more interesting story.” Every, single, time.

He was comparing Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode to the core multiplayer mode, but this reflects my enjoyment of Minecraft. It’s a Microsoft style tacked-on cash grab. Just know what you’re getting. Minecraft is all you need, but don’t hesitate to grab a texture pack to address its lackluster vanilla texture pack.

Summarily, keep it simple and trust yourself.

preview-chorus_fruit-1024x768pxWe are pleased to finally announce the release of ACME Resource Pack v9.82 for Minecraft! Downloads are live, so hop on over! There was so much to do, but we’ve arrived! Every aspect of the Combat Update has been covered in our distinctive style.

Chorus fruit? We’ve got it! Weird not-Cubeworld-flying-wing-things? Got those too. And a few other things. We updated more than what’s new, but that’s what happens when you become more conversant with the tools.

When you’re in the new boats, be sure to check out the water. About time, isn’t it?

Retroactive updates of older pack versions haven’t occurred yet, but that’s in the pipeline along with a massive revamp of our entire pack to meet the new standard you’re seeing in these new textures. Something to look forward to!

Enjoy!

We’re working our busy fingers off on the update for all of the new stuff in Minecraft 1.9. We’ve got a twist for the new zombie villagers, brand new effects icons that more accurately match what they are, and a slew of other stuff.

Projected release date? Two weeks? You know, under promise, over deliver. I’m throwing out irregular updates on twitter via @hastypixels if you want to follow along or ask me questions, like what is LGR?

Or not. Either’s fine. I’ll be updating this site first when we’ve got an update for the pack. In the meantime, we’re on it!
