One of the best Minecraft mods out there is the Synthwave texture pack. Created by none other than the Lead Concept artist, Kevin Costner, this texture pack comes with a ton of unique images that are sure to take your vision of what a beautiful world should look like to a whole new level! Created by combining realistic face detail and an overall “painted” look, the realistic textures are sure to leave you feeling as though you’ve really gotten a glimpse into the life of a real person. The images are so life-like, in fact, that you may even mistake some of the faces for that of a child or an infant, judging from the soft features and delicate features that Costner has illustrated. Everything from the clothing to the accessories used are designed to be extremely life-like in nature, which is also a nice thing about this particular type of texture pack, because it makes you feel as though you’re not simply viewing things through the eyes of a digital eyes, but rather a real person would feel when looking at them.
This type of mod actually took Costner almost two years to create, which is impressive considering the fact that most texture packs take just a few months to make. You can choose from a selection of items right from the mod’s gallery, which are detailed as well as beautifully painted by Costner himself. You can also get a head start on your own character right from the get go, if you so desire! But don’t stop there! You can take on the role of a Godfather and create your very own customized avatar for playing with in-game. The mod also comes with an enchanted lantern that can be placed at any location, making it a truly memorable item that is sure to bring enjoyment to any player who sees it.
Synthwave has been called the “New Age” texture pack for a reason, as it certainly has all of the characteristics that people love so much about mod packs such as these. For example, the textures are so realistic, you will honestly wonder why you never made one yourself. The realistic rendering technique used by the artist, combined with great sound effects, make these types of packs truly stand out and are appreciated by many.
As mentioned above, each item in the texture pack is a unique one of its own, featuring the most accurate rendering possible. There are plenty of creatures such as cows and sheep, along with mountains and forests to look around in. The landscapes are extremely well detailed as well, allowing you to feel as though you’ve step into a real life scene!
When it comes to the crafting system, this mod takes it to the next level. Items are broken down into their individual parts and are crafted according to your skill level. Once you are done, they will be sent to you, where you will need to assemble them into a complete work of art. Everything you craft will have a custom graphical flavor to it, allowing you to personalize everything to your heart’s content! Crafting in this mod also allows you to learn new recipes as well.
Overall, this is a very well done texture pack that will please all texture enthusiasts. The sky is the limit as far as what you can create using this mod. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of a new experience, as well as a mod that have a great deal of quality involved! Synthwave has become one of my favorites on this site, and I hope it does the same for you!
