Custom Resource Pack
The WesterosCraft Resource Pack (WCRP) not only makes a plethora of new textures available to the game, but swaps out most of Minecraft's standard sounds for more realistic counterparts.
The WCRP is a remix of Dokucraft, Doku TSC and custom textures specifically tailored to fit the atmosphere of the WesterosCraft Creative Server. The sound effects are from Soundjay.com and Pond5.com, either paid for under an Attribution 3.0 license or considered in the public domain.
Tailored to Fit
In several ways, the WCRP has been adapted to help convey a true-to-the-lore atmosphere of the world of "A Song of Ice and Fire".
Additions to the Textures have been made to account for the Religions mentioned in ASOIF like painted images of of the Seven (on the Dye Items), the seven-pointed star as a metal adornment on plaster blocks and the colours of the seven on a crystal glass windows and the enchantment table.
Other textures e.g. the daub & wattle blocks (on the Endstone metadatas) were created to emphasize the cultural and geographical differences between the regions of Westeros . The wealth or educational level of a build can be expressed by adding various types of (book)shelves, cabinets and chests that are made from different materials.
The interior detail of a project is just as important as the exterior, which is why several blocks display household items (food plates on pressure plates, tankard on flower pot) or even foodstuffs (hanging sausages, hares, fowls on cobbweb metadatas). Just as George R. R. Martin put great effort into describing foods and beverages, we put great effort into recreating that diversity. Netherwarts have been retextured to peas, potatos to turnips and the creeper head is now a head of lettuce and lots of other ingredients have been added as the content of crates and barrels.
There are a lot of textures that only differ slightly in tone or texture e.g. the sandstones. This helps to portray a realistic weathering or aging effect to walls and roofs of builds without creating harsh contrasts.
This pack is purely a Creative Mode pack. Currently there are no plans to make this into a pack that works with vanilla Survival.
CTM & MCPatcher
In the pre-launcher versions the RP made excessive use of MCPatcher's most notable feature, the Connected Textures Mod (CTM). The CTM allowed the creators of the WCRP to increase the amount of textures a block can display, by assigning textures to the metadatas of a block ID that the vanilla game did not use. The mod also comes with a set of different features on how textures on a block change with the placement of the block in 3D space.
History of Resource Pack Development
The current WCRP is specificly designed to complement the corresponding version of the WesterosBlocks mod, which has to be installed on a Forge based server and client. The WCRP features 177 textures that use various CTM methods, significant changes to standard MC blocks, a custom sky set with several moving clouds, customs sounds and lots of biome dependent colour-overlays.
It is about 44 MB large.
In the future, development will focus on refreshing the item and sound portion of the Resource Pack. Check out our ongoing development on the forums.
