Steampunk is a popular theme across many different games. Steampunk is difficult to describe in a single sentence, but it basically involves using design styles from a time when steam power was widely used – like in Victorian Britain or in the “Wild West” period of U.S. history. Steampunk also incorporates elements of science fiction, horror, fantasy, and more in order to create a totally unique style.
One modder has brought the world of Steampunk to Minecraft. Glimmar’s Steampunk Texture Pack is one of Minecraft’s most well-developed texture packs, and it brings a completely new appearance to the Minecraft we know and love.
After installing the Glimmar’s Steampunk Texture Pack, players will notice that everything from spiders to stone blocks have been retextured in a Victorian theme. There are also new male and female HD Steampunk characters, new armor sits, mine carts, and so much more. There’s even a pumpkin diving helmet that gives players the ability to breathe underwater.
Of course, a big emphasis of this texture pack is the new machinery. If you’re a fan of redstone machinery and BuildCraft-style contraptions, then you’ll appreciate the improvements that have been made to these textures. Now, machines don’t feature sharply contrasting colors. Instead, they look like complete units that actually generate power.
The texture pack comes complete with old industrial themes, cogs, steam engines, and plenty of other cool new features. Whether you want to create an entire Victorian city or you just want to admire the new machines you’ve created, Glimmar’s Steampunk Texture Pack can help.
Ultimately, the main goal of Glimmar’s Steampunk 1.6 is to give players the ability to “build epic sized constructions in the style of Victorian science fiction.” If that sounds like something you’re interested in, then the Glimmar’s Steampunk Texture Pack delivers in a big way.
