With all of the medieval themed resource packs available for Minecraft, it might seem a little pretentious for Golbez22 to call his pack the Golbez22’s Medieval Resource Pack. But this is by far one of the best examples of how to do a medieval pack right, so maybe the moniker isn’t so undeserved after all. You’ll notice that the natural world – forests, fields and the like – looks untouched and pristine, as if nobody has ever even walked through the place. This is in stark contrast to the crafted blocks and structures which look like something right out of a history book. At a glance, this pack is good.
This pack is totally finished, which is a good thing since it’s almost 2 years old today. The GUI, torches, filler blocks and everything else has been updated or improved over the vanilla look thanks to better textures and an improved 32x resolution. The Golbez22’s Medieval Resource Pack makes Minecraft look very different, but still not so foreign that veterans might get lost or not know exactly what they’re looking at. The pack and its textures are intuitive, and even Minecraft noobs will be able to figure out what’s what after just a few minutes of gameplay.
This Golbez22’s Medieval Resource Pack pretty much requires you to install MCPatcher and run it simultaneously. It’s not technically necessary to use the pack, but that add-on does add some improved textures and make some other small changes to significantly improve the look of Minecraft. It’s a sort of prerequisite for a number of other high-end resource packs, and this is definitely what you would call a high-end resource pack. The resolution might be somewhat low at 32x but that doesn’t change the fact things simply look good here.
