    Looks like a texture pack, if that's what you're talking about.

    this isn't a texture pack - there are programs that render the server's world as a 3D object so that you can take screenshots of your world like this one with lighting and textures nicer than the actual game engine can produce. You can't play the game with it looking like this, afaik - you can only export the world as a 3D model.

    <I wish our forum had strikethrough tags>I may be wrong - if you can find a screenshot that looks like this and includes the toolbar/HUD I'll be pleasantly surprised.</strikethrough>
    EDIT: I found an article for you on how people render their minecraft worlds to make nice looking screenshots. There is no way to make the world look like this in-game.

    There are some crazy texture packs, though.

    You can make it look like this:

    Personally I would honestly not get a texture pack I think the simplicity of the graphics adds to the charm that this game has.

    For example:

    Kotaku, the Gamer’s Guide

    It pretty much says the EXACT rant that I'd place here.

    I just wouldn't put mods on there personally.

    That article doesn't have anything to do with texture packs o.o

    And I probably won't use any texture packs unless I found one I really liked, but I don't think they are a bad thing for people who want them. In fact, I would go against a lot of what that article says about people loving the "idea" of Minecraft and say that a LOT of the charm of the game (after playing for a while and becoming more and more aware of the limits, for example) is because of the easy ability to add texture packs and mods and extend its value beyond what it originally has. One of the best ways to keep a community playing your game is to be friendly to the modding community.

    People love the game so much that they take months of hard work to create additional content, or modify existing content in a new way -- that is what keeps people there, imo. I think a lot of games need to embrace the modding culture more (obviously not mods that provide unfair advantage, etc) and would probably have higher success.

    sure it has something to do with texture packs, it explains how such a simple and unadvertised game becomes so popular from its simplicity, and how blockbuster games are actually biting themselves in the ass cause Minecraft proves that you really don't need all the fancy graphics to make an awesome game

    Yeah, but... it still doesn't have much to do with texture packs - that is an entirely separate issue o.o The game is what it is, and everyone starts out with it that way... but adding different graphics doesn't harm the game; it only creates a different environment (and they themselves fully support and encourage people to make texture mods).

    I think the article is arguing something completely different, but anyway :P I still think one of the major saving graces of this game is their friendliness to modders. You can create such a nice, helpful community by allowing people to change the game in their own little ways - it encourages creativity and an active role in a game, rather than a completely passive one o-o
