CREATOR BY IONICXHAZE
Whenever you play Minecraft, do you feel like some of the textures just needed tweaking to make the experience better? This “Improved Default Textures” pack was created to make many of those textures better!
This is NOT AT ALL a complete texture over hall. This pack is used to make many block textures just that much better in order to improve builds and the overall experience! One way is added brick color variation and color, the other is improving textures that don’t really fit in with other blocks, and a few other miscellaneous changes to blocks have occurred as well.
One of the main purposes for created this pack was to remove the thick borders on the “smooth” or “polished” blocks. Other blocks like lapis, iron, GLASS, shroomlights, prismarine bricks, redstone, and cut sandstone (with also a new brick like texture) have also had their borders removed too! Tinted Glass also has the same treatment.
Smoother stone (stone like) textures have been added into the game, most recently smoother calcite and tuff. Ore textures have also been improved, with variation being added in the Java Pack as well. Caving tools have also been redesigned to give each variation a separate look based on material
Even grass like blocks have had their textures updated too, where all 4 sides of the block look similar to the top (like optifine).
There are also a few more altered block textures as well that have not been covered. Not only that, but many items have had their textures altered (tools, weapons, armor, other random textures)) and currently a few entities. The end sky has also been given a nice starry background to replace the old background, and what better than a new dragon-skin elytra. Tools especially have been updated as well as HUD aspects, with many new changes in this update. There is also a new X crosshair, numbered hotbar (now fixed on bedrock), less obstructive icons (ex: Hearts) and a now semi-transparent pumpkinblur effect.
A dark UI mode is also available now, and Bedrock has it added in as 2 subpacks. The dark UI now utilizes a blue colored hover-selection instead of the standard White (Java) or Green (Bedrock) (note: bedrock pack setup does allow for some specific customization elements without altering code, making the pack much harder to work with and implement new features)
