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.

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!

preview-flowery-1024pxThere 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.

For reference:
> Feather Tree to Fern
> Dead Bush to Mini White Chocolate Tree
> White Poinsettia (Rose/Poppy) to Blue Poinsettia
> Blue Snowflake Spray to Mini Feather Tree
> Golem’s Poinsettia to Feather Tree
> Metallic Spray to Mini Chocolate Tree

Enjoy!

preview-seasonal_wonder-1024pxMerry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone! We’re kicking off this season with a massive update to our seasonal resource pack! Our Gingerbread Kit, enabling you to build and share to the limits of your imagination (and free time), has received some attention from Tumbleberry and Hastypixels.

This year we decided ornaments, mobs and a greater range of building blocks needed attention. What are you waiting for? Head on over to the downloads page and grab your free download in resolutions 128x, 256x, and 512x. Watch this space as the first 1024x version of the Gingerbread Kit is in the works, too!

Stay warm, stay safe and may your holidays be a delight!

So many things have changed since the last update: We have our own homepage and hosting solution now, we have surpassed 100,000 downloads, had our textures and splash texts cherry-picked by Mojang in advance of its sale to Microsoft, just as others have.

Tumbleberry and I discussed the issue thoroughly, and in the end the experience is what matters, not paycheque. Clearly if it did, we wouldn’t be making a modification for Minecraft. Now that Microsoft will be assuming control, we are going to continue updating the texture pack as usual. We are hopeful that Microsoft’s expertise will improve Minecraft as a creative tool for all of us.

Above all else Minecraft enables previously unrealized creativity and social interaction. How many have sat down to watch someone build Lego? Tens of millions watch others play and build in Minecraft, to the extent that Microsoft is paying for the audience, not the product. May that be the guiding principle as development continues.

Promised features, bug fixes and community attentiveness have all been inconsistent under the stewardship of Mojang, which, like other home-grown Indie houses, lack experience at the international support level. I am assured, if nothing else, by Microsoft’s past experience in this arena. While not always positive, they do have a lot of it.

The fact is that Minecraft reached millions more than it would have thanks to the XBox 360 and PS3, and increased audience can only do more good in this type of game: Our creativity is at the heart of its success, after all. We made Minecraft the success it has become, let us not forget that.

What will you be creating? We’re excited to find out!

08-19-2014-Good So FarI am pleased to announce we are ready for the release of Minecraft 1.8 and will release in parallel. According to Mojang that should be in a few days.

In the tradition of our past releases, we don’t support snapshots. Some pretty crazy stuff can happen there, and it can be very disorienting. We prefer the most direct answer, so we’ve taken the approach of supporting full releases, not works-in-process.

One more thing: We are looking at the possibility of bringing ads to this homepage to provide some financial support for all the traffic it generates, which works out to roughly 5K downloads a week, over 10K visitors in the same span.

Thank you to everyone who supports the pack by downloading it and making videos! We don’t depend on feedback, but we’re always thrilled to receive it.
