If you haven’t heard, Microsoft, er… Mojang is going to launch a marketplace for player created content, and mods will not be supported. We understand microtransactions will net you Mojang “funbucks”, which you’ll use to buy the maps, sound or texture pack you want play with. (Which means your friends will have to also buy the same content if you which to share the same experience.) A handful of content creators have been selected to participate, and this puts their popularity on the dime.
Let’s be clear: Microsoft is only allowing registered businesses to participate, but seeing as how that’s not a massive hurdle, it remains to be seen how effective a deterrent that will be against scammers and asset flips. The “community store” will not be appearing in the deskop (Java) version of Minecraft. This initiative raises some important questions: Will participants be granted early access to snapshots? How comfortable will you be having to pay for the latest version of a resource pack that was previously free? Will content creators selling maps and packs on the community store stop supporting the desktop version? Given Microsoft’s history, can they be trusted to curate modded content?
Where do Tumble and I stand on the issue? We have no intention of applying to the Microsoft/Minecraft Marketplace. In the same way that we released our pack complete, no betas or incomplete versions, we are going to hold to our original mission statement. This pack is for players, all players. We’ll never charge a price for it. If you’d like to show your appreciation, make a video, play with your loved ones, some friends, or strangers. Have fun, because that’s what games are for!

None too soon, we’ve updated the resource pack for the newly included “iron nugget”. Downloads are live now at our main site, ACMEResourcePack.com and NudgeworksDesign.com. While I’m about it, I know there may not seem much to look forward to in 2017, but let us turn to our family and loved ones in these difficult times.
Family is why Tumbleberry and I made this resource pack, after all. Our prayers are with those who struggle, and hold to the truth. Remember those who love you … give them an indication for your gratitude before the year is out.
With much love,
Hastypixels and Tumbleberry.
Can you believe it? I can’t believe it. Well, yes, I actually can, but … here we are folks! ACME Resource Pack for Minecraft 1.11 … downloads are live! What else to say? I’ll be updating our Affiliate links during the week, and working on new preview videos based on the style of our Gingerbread Kit video.
Thank you for all of your sharing, reviews, and feedback. This pack is for you. Please drop us a line on Twitter, Patreon or Facebook! Here’s a snippet of the changelog:
Yes, it’s all there. We even caught up with the missing textures from Minecraft 1.10. Oops. Anyway, it’s likely I’ll be updating the Gingerbread Kit and Gingerbread Combo Kit during my winter break, so stay tooned to our Patreon page for more information.
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.
I’ve updated our affiliate links, though I’m waiting for a response from a couple of sites. Otherwise, all is a go!
Please let us know if you encounter any issues with the pack, by comment, Google+, Facebook or Twitter.
We did it! And boy howdy did we answer the … ahem, cherry picking … of certain textures that took place. Seriously guys, we appreciate the flattery, but this is becoming a habit.
We’ve covered every new texture in the Minecraft 1.10 “Frostburn Update” , of course, and you’ll appreciate Tumble’s charming humour with the new mobs. I took the nether brick block for a stroll and came back with a monster. You’ll see what I mean.
Enough about that. The downloads page has been updated with the new links! Be advised that we’ve made good on our promise to discontinue 512x resolution. Even with 16GB of RAM and a 4GB graphics card it’s still untenable to test, and that’s just not worth it.
Who wants to ship a broken product? Yeah, not us. Anyway, enjoy! I’ll be updating our affiliate sites tomorrow with the updated texture pack. Toodles!
We 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!
I’ve updated all of our ACME Pack Downloads to include MD5 and CRC checksums. This means you can be sure you’ve got files that haven’t been tampered with. The plethora of sites resharing our files should temporarily flag has not having them, but now we’ll actually be able to tell.
Just a minor, technical thing. I go out of my way to remove hidden system files from our packs because I don’t trust Microsoft’s security policies all that much.
Meanwhile I’ve noticed my time lapse videos have clocked a few thousand views, and as that’s thousands more than anything else I’ve made, expect more of that!
Finally, downloads continue steadily at roughly 5,000 per week, and honestly I don’t have any totals right now. Aggregating that data is a new skill for me. I’m planning around round up for March, so I’ll do my best to produce some solid data along with that.
Again, thank you for downloading and sharing! This pack is for you, and you are the ones who make it awesome!
Easily said, easily done! ACME Pack and the Gingerbread Kit can now be downloaded via torrent!
There are new versions of the Gingerbread Kit and Combo Pack to address incorrectly named decoration blocks within the resource pack. These replace the previous versions completely. This doesn’t actually affect the functionality of the pack, but it does make more sense now.
The updated files are available for free download on the Gingerbread Kit page.
