Given the pack’s low resolution, some players will avoid JadeCraft just because of the bias some Minecraft community members have for low res packs. However, despite the fact it comes in 16x, the JadeCraft resource pack manages to do something very few other resource packs do – it adds a lot of emphasis to the darker aspects of Minecraft, like shadows, caves, tunnels and other dark places. The night is especially nice in this pack, as it will actually look dark enough to stop you from seeing far on most evenings. You’ll definitely want to have more torches handy while playing and using this.
No pack that claims to focus on Minecraft’s darker aspects could say such a thing if it didn’t do a good job of updating the Nether. JadeCraft does this and well, making all of the bright lava lakes and rivers and patches of burning fire really contrast with the dark, dull backgrounds surrounding them. It probably never seemed possible that someone could make the Nether look even less hospitable, but the JadeCraft resource pack manages this just fine. There are a few other very interesting points about this pack though, including the overall age of the thing. It was actually designed for Minecraft 1.4.
Updating JadeCraft to work with Minecraft 1.8 is taking some time, especially with all of the new textures like flowers, construction blocks, items and more, all of which are going to get an update in this pack. JadeCraft is definitely one of the more thorough resource packs you’ll find for Minecraft, and even if it hasn’t been made fully compatible with Minecraft 1.8 yet, it makes the game look different enough that you can tell what the author is trying to accomplish.
