Even though the Woodpecker resource pack sounds like something that would have a lot to do with birds, that’s just not the case. If you were to put it into any single genre, it would actually be a rustic pack more than anything else. One outstanding feature of Woodpecker is the way that blocks can have anywhere from 4 to 10 or more different colors on them. This allows for some good shading effects even without the use of shader mods, and helps to create blocks and textures which look more realistic and believable. This is especially surprising because the resolution remains a low 16x.
The Woodpecker resource pack is also set up in such a way that the pack doesn’t actually have a palette. Every block has its own set of palettes instead, and some blocks do share palettes, which probably has something to do with why the resolution was able to be kept so low. There are still a handful of blocks that need to be updated, but the majority of the work remaining for the Woodpecker pack is in terms of mobs, items and icons. There is a custom GUI and interface for inventory, storage and crafting and enchanting tables and it looks pretty good too.
Unfortunately, none of the paintings are updated in this pack. If you were looking for more of an artsy resource pack, you’ll probably be disappointed with this one. On the other hand, if you want simple textures that look great, a world full of color and textures that have good shading effects despite the resource pack’s lower resolution, then Woodpecker might just be for you. Overall it’s a pretty solid pack with no glaring bad features to mention.
