Dragon Dance Resource Pack for Minecraft 1.8.1


With a name like Dragon Dance, you might assume a resource pack would do something to significantly update the Ender Dragon in Minecraft. This pack does a lot more than just update the look of a single monster most players will never see in the first place, though. In fact, just about every texture in Minecraft gets a glossy new coat of paint, resulting in everything from dirt to wood to bricks looking brighter and more colorful than ever before. While Dragon Dance resource pack makes the game look cartoonier in a fashion, it still isn’t so bright that all the images are coated with annoying pastels.





With a 64x resolution, Dragon Dance reosurce pack isn’t exceptionally large or small – it’s right in the middle in terms of size and resolution. Every texture in this pack is 100% hand drawn, not created using vectors or pre-existing resource packs, and the amount of work which went into Dragon Dance is immediately evident. It just looks better than a lot of resource packs, even some higher res packs which include more detailed textures. Dragon Dance texture pack works well with Minecraft right up to version 1.8, but with a little time and tweaking it will work with 1.8.1 as well. New art for the underwater blocks and mobs should be coming.






Because everything is so bright, even the blocks which exist underground, it is possible to go mining without packing some torches or other light sources if you jack up the brightness under Options first. Some players might consider this cheating, but whether that includes you or not, Dragon Dance resource pack does allow for the use of fewer resources, a point which only adds to the appeal of the resource pack. Updates to The Nether and support for popular mods also help make Dragon Dance texture pack stand out.

  1. I like this resource pack, but it says it is completely compatible with 1.8 and yet the three new stone types (granite, andesite, & diorite(?)) are not updated, and at least sheep, cows, and chickens still have their x16 vanilla textures. I really do like the theme of the pack and the quality of all the updated blocks, just please finish it out. If the mobs and the new stone types were updated this would be one of my favorite resource packs.
