2 packs of vanilla mods are coming to Minecraft 2.5, which means the game will get even more vanilla content.
The mod pack abs is a compilation of mods that add vanilla content in Minecraft 2, with some of them being a little bit larger than others.
It includes the new “Faithful Texture Pack” (FSP) and the “Wandering Woods Pack” and is available for download from the mod’s website.
The mod pack has some pretty big names behind it, like “Hearthstone” and “The Forge” among others.
Faithful texture packs have always been a big deal in Minecraft, and they have become something of a standard feature for modders who want to add some variety to the sandbox.
They’ve also become the backbone of modding for mods that are popular with the Minecraft community, and a major reason why so many moddlers are making the game available in modding format.
This pack is not going to replace vanilla content that moddler’s are already adding to the map, but it does add some vanilla content for the first time.
“Faithful textures are a core feature of the game, and have been a staple in our modding efforts,” Minecraft 2’s lead modder, Ben Hammes, told Ars Technic.
“The FSP adds a handful of new textures, as well as a few vanilla textures and an updated version of one of the original vanilla textures.”
Faithfulness textures are often seen as a way for modder to make the game look more “traditional,” and a big part of that has to do with the way the game’s graphics engine handles texture data.
If you’ve been playing Minecraft for a while, you probably have heard of the “texture compression” feature that allows the game to load textures in higher quality.
This feature is especially important when modding, because it allows moddling to create textures that are higher in resolution.
The higher resolution makes the game run faster, but there’s also a higher chance that the texture data will compress, rendering it blurry or jagged.
That’s why the FSP mod adds some vanilla textures to the Minecraft world, with a few more textures coming later on.
To see the vanilla textures, you have to load the modpack’s “Faithfulness Texture Pack.”
There are a few other vanilla mods that make it into the mod pack, including “Sulfuric Swamp,” “Dense Forest,” and “Aqua Islands.”
These vanilla mods can be found in the “Faithfully Compressed Vanilla” pack, which is not available in the mod packs section of the modding website.
Some of the other vanilla textures in the pack are actually made by modderers, like the “Dirt World” mod by a modder named Mr. Dibble.
These moddered textures are not the only ones that are added to the mod, though.
The “Lava World” pack adds a “Water” texture to the world that you can find in “Water World” and the same texture in “Mojang’s World.”
These textures can be seen in the two “Mortar” mods, “Morrowind Mortar” and one called “Merryland Mortar.”
The modpack also includes the “Loot Chest” mod from the Minecraft 1.9 modpack, and “Luxury Furnace” mod that is based on a mod by Modders Resource Pack.
You can find all of these mods in the vanilla pack section of moddering website.
I asked Hammes about the modpacks section on the modder’s website, and he told me that they are there to offer a “virtual store” of mods.
“When we first started modding the game a year ago, we wanted to be able to quickly add new mods to the pack, but as moddying grew, we realized that there were more and more moddable resources available to moddleters, so we added a ‘virtual store’ section on our website to help moddles find and install new mods,” he said.
I’m not sure how often moddals have been able to get new mods into their packs, but if they do, they usually need to do so at a modding site.
The “Faithly Texture Pack,” as it is known, will be available for Minecraft 2 on March 13, with the release of the 2.6.1 patch scheduled for the same day.
