Turn back the clock inside your Minecraft world with the Battered Old Stuff resource pack. Experience the retro days with the rustic textures that this pack offers and create some incredible builds that will look completely different from the vanilla game. However, even with the gloomy old-school theme that it implements, your world still remains quite colorful and upbeat. If you ever played older RPG games, they’ll be the first association once you load up Minecraft with this pack installed. Most of the blocks resemble a medieval style, with raw and rustic finishes. The color palette is noticeably darker to make everything look more legitimate. Attention to detail is obvious wherever you look – for example, even the doorknobs themselves have been changed to suit the overall theme. The developer himself stated that the main purpose of this pack is to give players a fairly lightweight, classic, and attractive alternative to the rest of the resource packs. Many mobs received completely new models. Creepers look more like machines, with bright red eyes that will surely make your Minecraft nights additionally menacing. Zombies were also overhauled and represent rotting husks with a dirty white color palette. The least exciting change is that concerning slimes, which are just slightly different from the original. They have a bit more detail to them, as well as a few different shades of green. Friendly entities such as animals and villagers have retained their basic textures – except the Iron Golem. Unfortunately, he looks quite similar to a creeper, so be careful not to punch him accidentally. A resource pack wouldn’t be complete without a whole new assortment of in-game pictures – and this is where Battered Old Stuff texture pack truly shines. Once you see them, it’s quite obvious that the pack was inspired by the 50s and the 60s. The artwork includes pictures of some of the most famous actors of those years, such as Marlon Brando and John Wayne. There are also posters of popular movies, cartoons, car models, and even soft drinks which are represented by a worn-out Pepsi-Cola image. Installing this pack is guaranteed to make you feel like you stepped in a time machine – especially if you’re a bit older.
The GUI itself is beautiful and follows the rustic overlay. Frames of chests, furnaces and other in-game items represent battered iron, while the inside has a light brown, wooden appearance to it. This is true for the main menu as well, which shows that the developer really paid attention to making sure that everything is consistent. Even some mods that have their own items with GUIs, such as Thaumcraft, have been changed accordingly. The interactable elements remained the same, so you won’t have any trouble finding your way around the menus. If your PC isn’t able to run some of the more advanced resource packs, you’re in for a surprise. Battered Old Stuff comes with a 64×64 resolution which isn’t demanding at all. When you look at the level of detail, it’s quite surprising what it offers – you can even compare it to some of the 128×128 packs. As far as prerequisites go, it’s recommended to install either Optifine or MCPatcher. The pack uses connected textures, so if you want everything to appear uniform and without any rough transitions, make sure to get either of those two. Also, you’ll be able to squeeze out a few additional FPS. If you have a beefier PC, make sure to try combining the resource pack with shaders. It’s only going to emphasize the retro theme and complete the experience. Alongside vanilla textures, Battered Old Stuff pack has the ability to work with certain mods. You can find separate resource pack files on the official download page that are reserved for mod support. The developer mostly works on the textures of the mods that he plays with. These include Primal Magick, Quark, BuildCraft, and others. Keep in mind that the pack isn’t fully completed yet, and according to the creator, it never will be. This is because there are constant updates with support for additional mods, as well as other textures that need to be touched up. Still, Battered Old Stuff is worth a download – especially if you’re tired of the usual packs that bring no creativity.
