Minecraft has evolved immensely since its release in May 2009. Concepts have changed, an endless list of things have been added, and it all contributed to make Minecraft the game it is today. If you’ve played Minecraft in its’ Alpha or early Beta days, you’d realize that the textures back then are very different than those of today’s version of Minecraft. Some people like the nostalgia of the older textures, and resort to finding a texture pack to restore the old Alpha glory. Some packs do a good job of replicating those days, while others do a poorer job. But this pack, The Veteran Resource Pack, takes nostalgia to a whole new level. The Veteran Resource Pack is a pack which replicates how Minecraft was in its early development. Not only does this pack serve up a fresh look of older textures, but also brings back some early-dev sounds, by taking advantage of the new possibilities of resource packs in Minecraft 1.6. This pack is pretty much self-explanatory. It provides a nostalgic experience for those long-time Minecraft players. If you’re looking for an extremely well done, nostalgic experience, then The Veteran Resource Pack is your final destination.
