Many people believe that minecraft was inspired by the amazing, legendary; Lego product. Building, placing and breaking “blocks” of Lego were a huge part of the product itself. Even the minecraft character models look similar to the lego people. As interesting as it is, the creator of minecraft denies the fact that Lego played a big part in the creation of the idea of minecraft. This may or may not be true; however in many players’ minds; this rumour sits in their heads like it was true all along. However if minecraft were to be truly implemented to look and feel like minecraft, it would be obvious then that minecraft was really based on the product; Lego.
The LegoPack Texture Pack for minecraft 1.6.4, replaces the default textures that minecraft originally comes with, with new and extremely unique textures that resemble the Lego product. Ordinary texture packs simply change the textures either into a more detailed, or a simple, themed pack. Via it be medieval or cartoony based. However in the process of creating this wonderful piece of art, the texture pack artist has changed the textures of the default texture pack into new and very extraordinary blocks of Lego. Each and every individual texture, with this texture pack, will resemble something from the Lego product. Blocks and items have been changed significantly for the theme to work correctly. However most textures are still recognisable simply because of their colour and basic format.
While introducing new and very unique texture types, the Legopack texture pack also implements a sort of joyous feeling into the game. You feel as if you were young again, playing with your Lego set, however this time, much more interactive. Let alone the vast expanse of what you can build with your new; “Lego pieces”. Every single block, items and mob has been changed to look very much the same as the Lego products, even water, lava and weather have been manipulated into resembling the wondrous form of Lego. However, sometimes the texture pack can be very overwhelming to use and often gets slightly frustrating to use. Simply because everything looks strange and a significant amount of change has been made to the original game of minecraft.
Often a lower quality texture pack can prove itself to be more detailed than others. However this all depends on the theme and motivation the texture pack. If the theme of the texture pack has been based on a simplistic, yet cartoony design that does not require an intense amount of detail; including a high resolution; then the texture pack can be designed to suit its lower resolution but still look realistic or defined for its theme. This is easier to do when the texture pack is based around something cartoony or “childish” almost.
When using the Legopack texture pack, it is not required; however if you wish a patcher can be downloaded and used to allow extra content for the texture pack to be implemented into the game. A patcher is extremely recommended to users who already have high definition or patcher required texture packs installed on their game. Patcher allows the texture pack to work properly and process correctly. When installing a normal texture pack it is still recommended that you install and use a patcher so that your other texture packs will also be patched if experiencing errors or bugs.
