There are a lot of texture packs out there. They range from 1×1 pixels all the way to 4096×4096 pixels. The Delta-NP Smooth texture pack offers a medium between the two. This pack adds more realism to your game without sacrificing the basic idea of “everything is made of blocks”. The tools and blocks of the pack seem realistic and tangible in the game. At first look the pack is a medieval upgrade to Minecraft’s original 16×16 textures with simple, ornate detail. One can appreciate the art style, detail and time spent in artists’ work. The pack comes in a 64×64 and 128×128 version so along with the installation of the pack you’ll need to either install Optifine or use MCPatcher. It appears that Nuttyprot, the now retired texture pack developer, DarksideBD and TempusBD spent the time and effort on this pack to make sure it offers a new, higher definition experience.
