Fans of Terraria will undoubtedly love the TerraCraft resource pack, which pulls many images and graphics from that 2D platformer and pins them right into Minecraft. Despite Minecraft being a 3D game, many of the sprites and graphics have transitioned quite well, so it’s clear that the author behind TerraCraft put a lot of work into it. If you’ve already played Terraria, you’ll recognize pretty much everything you see in this pack, but for everyone else here’s a little rundown. Terraria and Minecraft are startlingly similar, but they do have their differences still.
For one, Terraria has the Corruption, which is what was used to replace the Nether in Minecraft. Both of these places are awful spots full of difficult monsters in their respective games, so this seems like a very good choice. Though the Blood Moon is a relatively rare sight in Terraria and denotes a terrible night full of superpowered monsters that can break down the doors on a home, that big, red moon can be seen every evening in Minecraft while you have TerraCraft installed. Thankfully it’s not quite the harbinger of doom which it is in Terraria – here it’s just something unusual to look at.
The TerraCraft resource pack was actually made using the Resource Pack Workbench. It wasn’t drawn up by hand, but that doesn’t take anything away from the quality of the textures. Items, environmental blocks, particle effects, mobs and even the lava and water all look different in this resource pack. That said, if you want a pack that makes the game look totally new, you’re going to be very pleased with TerraCraft. You don’t even need to be a fan of Terraria to enjoy this, that’s how good it is.
