Glimmar's Steampunk Texture Pack is a texture altering mod for Minecraft which will change the graphical quality in game but leave everything else unaffected. There are currently two different resolutions for the mod, 32 x 32 and 64 x 64. The biggest and most notable change which the mod brings to the look and feel of the game is the baroque and overwrought steampunk aesthetic.
Adding a noir-future look to nearly every item and surface with metallic details, brass attachments, strange charts, pressure gauges and arcane scrawling.
The mod will also alter the three dimensionality, if you will, of everything in the game. Essentially, it makes it look more realistic. Let us be honest, despite the fact that Minecraft is a expansive and detailed game, it does not have very intriguing graphics. Everything is blocky and flat and, well, ugly looking. This steps things up, making them more rounded, more three dimensional and more colorful.
The Steampunk mod will also alter the startup menu and the various different in game menus for the player. In place of the block, flat, and fairly banal interface you have come to rely on the mod will replace them with a jazzed up, futuristic, metallic menu. With all the funky gauges and meters that you will come to expect with this mod. This sounds like it would complicated menu navigation but the initial layout is kept exactly the same. Basically, it’s just the same menu only better looking.
