Vanilla Minecraft has a certain look and feel to it which you just don’t get from all of the outrageous texture and resource packs which exist for the game. Many “faithful” packs try to recreate or improve on these simple design elements and come up short, giving bad resolutions, blotchy colors and other problems instead of crisp, simple textures. The Naturus resource pack is one of the better faithful packs which manages to enhance natural elements of vanilla Minecraft. Do not confuse this with elements natural to Minecraft, because that isn’t quite right. This pack focuses on nature – like trees and grass.
Those are just two of the textures which get a serious overhaul from the Naturus resource pack. There are several custom sounds implemented in this resource pack, including realistic noises like the sound of leaves and grass rustling in the wind. It can be a little eerie considering Minecraft doesn’t naturally feature wind, but with the right mods the Naturus pack can create a more engrossing experience for the player. Like many resource packs which add custom content to Minecraft in addition to dressing up old blocks, items and equipment, Naturus needs Optifine installed and updated to work properly.
There are some other adjustments you can make to improve the appearance of textures in Naturus too. Setting lighting to “moody” is very important for giving the simple textures an improved look, since the low light will block out some graphical flaws much like ever-present fog blocked out details back in the early days of video games. Also be sure to turn on custom colors and custom sky to get those aspects of Naturus to render and work correctly.
