acmepack

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.

Enjoy!

Hastypixels here. I’m posting more detailed and frequent updates about our progress on the resource pack if you want to check us out on Patreon.

Yes, we are just that much closer to release, but how are you guys enjoying the new features of Minecraft? Are you enjoying them, or do they feel like fluff? Comment here, on Twitter, Patreon or Facebook!

Yeah, I’m not apologizing for that. Tumbleberry and I have been hard at work preparing the update for ACME Resource Pack for Minecraft 1.11 – and from what I can tell we’re not alone in being behind the curve. Technical stuff aside, I’m here to announce our official Patreon page!

If you’re not sure how to show your love for the ACME Pack – besides tweeting and making videos about it, that is – I’m incentivizing the notion of donations with some perks. Patreon supporters will get an inside look at our development process, personal chat time with me (hastypixels).

That sounds weird to me … but there it is. And hey, here it is!

So, being here, there and everywhere, I’ve noticed some more activity here … sorry about the delay in getting to it. I promise to be more prompt in my responses … didn’t actually expect anyone to use them. Silly me?

Thank you, everyone. If you hop on over to my Patreon page you’ll see some posts about my recent novel, but I promise to have some resource pack related posts up soon. The interesting stuff will be for Supporters, naturally.

Welp, back to work…

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!

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.
