I wanted to test something today. I tried recreating a 16x resourcepack as close to vanilla Minecraft as possible (version 1.13+ though), as an experiment.
I used Substance to generate a couple of 16x textures I tried to design very similar to their original counterparts.
Here are two screenshots, the first being original Minecraft, the second being my experimental pack. I don’t know what I could do with that, but maybe someday I’ll make more blocks for it.
Some blocks are much easier to design than others. Bricks were a tad tricky but still okay, grass top and sand were quite easy, stone was a no-brainer but dirt is not that trivial… Maybe I’ll find a way to improve those someday but I honestly don’t know what use I could have for those 😉 still, it was fun.
