Grampy’s Land Minecraft Texture Pack (16 x16)

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.

EldPack, Old School RPG Minecraft Texture Pack (16 x 16)

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.

ModernCraft is a texture pack that updates Minecraft to modern times.
