There’s a new trend in Minecraft play, and that’s creating other games in Minecraft. This Mirror’s Edge map comes with a custom texture pack so it looks something like the original Mirror’s Edge game. What’s really special about it is that it actually encourages you to play as if you were playing Mirror’s Edge. There are jumps that you need to make to progress through the level, and red blocks indicate the path you need to take in order to be successful.

If you loathe default graphics with the power of a million suns and you’re foaming at the mouth for texture packs, here are a few texture packs that have already updated for 1.6:
Looking for a Japanese / Asian inspired Minecraft texture pack? Look no further! If you’ve been on the edge of your seat waiting for a decent Japanese themed pack, you’ll be relieved to hear that it’s not difficult to see the Japanese inspiration in this texture pack – even when out and about the pink cherry blossoms are a fairly clear and present reminder that the land of the rising sun has had some serious influence over the world you’re walking around in.
Want to make your own Minecraft texture packs? This step by step guide will show you how to find the right files, use an image editor to work with them and finally upload them to share with other Minecrafters. Let’s jump right in!
At its most basic a Minecraft texture pack can be created by editing the .png files found in the .jar found in the .bin. If that didn’t make sense, then you need to hit CTRL + R and type %appdata% then hit ‘run’. Congratulations, you just found your .minecraft file. Open it to find the .bin, then open the .bin to get to the .jar. In order to open the .jar you’ll need a program like WinRAR or WinZip.
GirlCraft is one of those texture packs you don’t see very often. One of those texture packs where pinks and pastels reign supreme. It’s supposed to be a texture pack for girls and girls who aspire to be princesses and such will probably love it. But then again, so might boys and bearded grown men. Don’t let the title make you feel discriminated against.
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.
