Finally it is possible to create structures worthy of Odin within the bounds of Minecraft, using Lord Trilobyte’s NorseCraft texture pack. Smite thy hammer upon the ground and bring down bolts of lightening as you unleash the power of the ancient Nords in a relatively safe modern setting. (That setting being your house.)
JoliCraft is one of the most popular 16 x 16 default texture packs because it is whimsically cartoonish in its style and makes Minecraft seem like the happiest place on earth.Everything has been designed to feel as cozy and homely as possible. Take the beds, for instance. The default bed is perpetually crimson and looks like it was designed by someone named Vlad. The JoliCraft bed makes one feel as if there is definitely home baked bread and chicken soup to be had in the morning.
The first thing I noticed about Sinecraft was that it was pleasantly blocky. The original Minecraft textures are fairly blocky themselves, but this was a new kind of blockiness, a smooth, bordered blockiness that would probably have a martini on Wednesdays.
Cobblestone looks awesome in this texture pack. In fact, the whole thing has a sort of muted Lego appeal, which I enjoyed immensely.

Barbarians enjoy their primitive cobblestone castles, but more advanced civilizations know that what one really needs to build a city, nay a world worth mentioning are aqueducts and columns, coliseums and great works of art. Romancraft, a texture pack that fits neatly over the default texture pack with its 16 x 16 textures, saving you the trouble of loading up four different patchers and mod tools, works on install and it transforms your barbaric wild lands into places you can be proud of.
An attempt at ‘realism’ in 16 x 16 format, Grampy’s Land is not a bad little texture pack, not a bad little texture pack at all. If you’re looking for an additional 16 x 16 texture pack that is pleasantly neutral with little hints of character, then Grampy’s Land may very well be the texture pack of your dreams – or at least the texture pack of your next few hours. Let’s not go overboard on the commitment front.
Fans of an older, more genteel gaming style are going to fall in love with EldPack, a Minecraft texture pack that puts one firmly back in the 80′s, when gaming was good and somebody else paid the rent. (Seriously, I don’t know if we’d have all been so jazzed about the prospect of growing up if someone had mentioned that ‘rent’ thing a few times.)

Most texture packs do one of two things, either they make the game look more ‘realistic’ or they make the games appearance more simple and minimalistic. Arabesque is a texture pack that does something entirely different. It makes your game look like something out of Arabian Nights, and that, my fine Minecrafting friends, is a great thing.
