Texture packs are often wonderful pieces of what some people might call; Artwork. When the artist of the texturepack shows his ability of creativity by inserting an amazing amount of effort and time into the texture pack, and all turns out well, the produced work will almost every time, end up beautiful. The Glimmar’s Steampunk Texturepack for minecraft 1.6.4, is an extraordinary piece of artwork. By changing every single default texture that minecraft origionally has to begin with; Glimmar’s steampunk texturepack makes minecraft almost seem like a completely different game.
The Glimmar’s Steampunk Texture Pack for Minecraft 1.7.2, uses a unique theme in which, inspires the artist to develop an original piece of work. This texturepack is based around a single theme; steampunk. By changing the default textures, and making them more detailed, rustic, and more unique, users of this texturepack, and also players of minecraft can experience minecraft to a whole new level and explore the new edited textures that this texturepack introduces.
Steampunk is a unique theme, based around a more modern, yet rustic lifestyle.

Glimmar’s Steampunk Texture Pack for Minecraft 1.7.2 Main Features
This texturepack has not only changed the textures of; blocks, items, food, and terrain, but it has also changed even the monsters and animals. Not to mention the villagers too. It would take a huge amount of imagination and creativity to design a steampunk based monster yet still keep the same originality of minecraft mobs. Instead of changing the look of the mobs completely; the artist of this texturepack has simply kept the textures of the mobs etc., and then edited them to seem more mechanical. In a way, it also makes monsters, animals and villagers look far more mysterious, and even more hostile.
The artist of the Glimmar’s Steampunk texturepack, has taken minecraft textures to the next level. This could possibly be the next generation of minecraft texture pack themes. Everything inside this texturepack has been made to seem robotic, mechanical yet still keep the feel of minecraft. Of course wood and all the normal, natural building materials have only been changed to suit the theme. Only a few of these natural blocks and textures have been made to look mechanical or robotic. Natural substances such as dirt and grass still looks similar to the original, default texturepack minecraft already has; however, it has been changed in the slightest, just to make it fit in with everything else.
Glimmar’s Steampunk Texture Pack for Minecraft 1.7.2 Usage
When using this texturepack, like most high definition texture packs, it is recommended that you download a foreign program or mod such as mcpatcher or Optifine. These programs/mods (Optifine as a mod, MCPatcher as a program.), will “patch” your game; once the texturepack has been installed, and make everything work properly. If a foreign patcher has not been installed, the texturepack will in turn look ugly, or messed up. This is because minecraft cannot process such a high definition texturepack and it is required that you patch your game so that everything will work out with no problems.
However it may be that a program such as MCPatcher is not needed for this kind of texturepack. However, it is still recommended that you install the Optifine mod to decrease lag and FPS usage. If at any time that you feel in the need to install a high definition texturepack you will need to in the end, download a foreign patcher. However with the Optifine mod, it will automatically patch your texturepack and the trouble of continuously patching your game will be fixed.

Special ThanksGlimmar, Loved your texture pack… actually make me think about the vikings and stuff…
Like I say this texture pack is at a victorian time age which means all of the tiles, blocks, and wood are all man made. So what this mod does is return you back in time when the victorians are still ruling, the earth are man made, the ships are very realistic, the air is very dirty, and the environment around you just suit that time of age.
