Fans of a modern look and feel in Minecraft will want to take a look at Hokomoko’s Modern Resource Pack, which adds like of flat colors, metallic textures and even some nice glass effects to everyone’s favorite game of building blocks. There’s really not much special to say about the pack, and even the author agrees it’s a rather simplistic pack. However, it does a good job of transforming Minecraft from a world which looks primitive into one where you might see the kinds of large cityscapes where the majority of people live today. It’s really quite refreshing.
Actually, one of the best parts about Hokomoko’s Modern Resource Pack is the fact it replaces many blocks and textures which are rarely if ever used in vanilla Minecraft. Things like quartz blocks end up looking like stainless steel refrigerators and so on. This actually has two benefits – boring textures nobody wants get removed from Minecraft and new textures which truly fit the theme of the pack are introduced at the same time. Now, quarts blocks don’t actually appear as refrigerators, but that’s a pretty good example of the sort of repurposing of textures you can expect from this pack.
Paintings get modified by this pack too, with some being turned into wall-mounted microwaves or other textures and objects you would expect to find decorating walls in more modern homes. Honestly, if you were thinking of plotting out a modern home of your own, using this pack to first build it up in Minecraft really wouldn’t be a bad idea. Besides that very niche real world use for the pack though, it’s still just a great addition to Minecraft for people who want a world filled with structures that look different.
