If you’re searching for a resource pack which does a thorough job of replacing or revamping all textures in Minecraft, you’re going to be very happy with AD Reforged, the spiritual successor to the Arestian’s Dawn resource pack. Because it comes from the same author it would be natural to assume some of the textures in this pack might be borrowed from that older one, but that’s not the case here. Everything about this resource pack, from the skies overhead to the sands beneath your feet, has been changed to create the world that looks like something out of a fantasy book or film.
Well, almost everything. The clouds look about the same, but besides that, the AD Reforged resource pack is like converting Minecraft into a completely different world. The boosted 32x resolution helps a bit, but it’s the hundreds of unique textures painstakingly made by hand which really make this resource pack shine. Unlike many other resource packs which ignore newer blocks from 1.8, AD Reforged also updates the stained varieties of clay and glass to make them look even better than normal. It doesn’t change every single texture, but it still isn’t wrong to call this one thorough pack.
The thing is; AD Reforged isn’t exactly completed yet. In its current state the author figured it to be about 70% finished, so those little things which have yet to be updated probably will see some changes in the near future. It’s a pack that’s getting a lot of attention from the Minecraft community for its unique look and with so many people demanding updates it’s safe to say AD Reforged will be finished sooner rather than later. It’s certainly at a stage where it’s worth checking out today though, even if it isn’t finished yet.
