This takes how we play Minecraft to another level! We’ve had alot of texture packs that have been based in the medieval era’s. But none like this…This is Romecraft: GERMANIA XIV Texture Pack which really does send Minecraft back to the Roman times with the type of textures that they would have used back then. None of the blocks/items/mobs have been left out, they’ve all been texturized to fit this Roman-age theme. The Romecraft: GERMANIA XIV Texture Pack has been inspired by real examples of the Roman times like the beautiful architecture and striking pieces of art work and the most famous example is the armour. Replacing the plain and default armour with ancient Roman armour which really does make you fit in with the Romecraft: GERMANIA XIV Texture Pack theme. Beware, there are alot of details and texture in various blocks but they’re mainly detail designs of geometric Roman mosaic, Roman-times symbols or tradition Roman patterns such as the mazes which are a very pretty touch to the Romecraft: GERMANIA XIV Texture Pack.
In some texture packs, there are alot of irrelevant blocks/mobs/items that have either been texturized and have nothing to do with the theme or haven’t been texturized at all and look like the default version. But as for the Romecraft: GERMANIA XIV Texture Pack, everything has it’s own identity as a Roman times pattern/symbol/mosaic or anything Roman related which really does compliment how we play Minecraft.
Personally, by looking at the different screenshots, I’d say that the creator has choosed weather it be by texture, design, detail and colour perfectly. Because nothing looks out of place and he’s certainly hit the point with the colour choice too, because they all look rich and compelling and fits in very well like a puzzle piece!
Everything inside the striking world of Rome in the Romecraft: GERMANIA XIV Texture Pack is fairly dark for example the majority of the colours used are dark probably due to the era and that also goes for the other blocks too, but I put that down to the amount of detail. And I know I stress alot with talking about the amount of ‘detail’ and that it’s ‘dark’ and that might put you off. But 1.) The screenshots speak for itself and 2.) Honestly, the detail and the amount of rich colour compliments the scenery alot of it’s far from off putting aswell infact it’s magnificent to play in such a theme too and it really feels like you’ve been whizzed back a few centuries ago and that’s how it was in the Roman times. Much detail in the blocks were used and rich colours were used traditionally and it looked royal too!
About Romecraft: GERMANIA XIV Texture Pack for Minecraft 1.7.2
The colours are dark and it would be a bit out of context if you saw alot of bright colours because the dark colours really resembles that time period and it also resembled richness, tradition and royalty which is a very honourable thing to feel using the Romecraft: GERMANIA XIV Texture Pack which is a massive bonus. There is alot of detail used in this, which isn’t offputting because they are purely used in the Romecraft: GERMANIA XIV Texture Pack to refelct on the mosaics, patterns and symbols they made and what would this texture pack that’s based on the Roman times be without the tradition things? As much as you think that the amount of detail would be too harsh for your eyes. You’re very wrong there, because the out come is absolutely stunning and worth downloading! The atmosphere on the other hand is typically outstanding, the work and effort put is is totally a big pay of for the benefit of the peruasion for it’s views! Personally, I think the creator has done a great job with this because the atmosphere there is very different as the way it’s been structured and the entire appearnace of it makes you feel as thought you’re part of the experience which a very hard thing to do if you’re making a texture pack! So the creator has definitely succeeding in doing just that there!
