Doku Craft, Triple HD Minecraft Texture Pack (32 x 32)
Doku Craft is actually three texture packs in one, and all of them
are better than your average texture pack, which makes this a triple
threat of textured goodness. All of the texture packs carry with them
the original Doku RPG lineage, but they express it in very different
ways. I should note at the outset that although the bulk of textures
have been reskinned in these texture packs, as far as I can tell the
animal and mob textures and paintings have not been touched. You
shouldn't let this get in the way of downloading this texture
collection however, it's quite excellent all on its own.
The 'High' version of the pack reflects an elven theme. Chests are
ornate blue and gold, as are doors and normal unpowered minecart
rails. There's a note of enchantment in the air. (However that works
and whatever that means.) In practice it rather means that there's an
aqua blue hue to general proceedings that I suppose one associates
with the presence of elves.
'Dark' imparts a more raw, earthy feel to the game. It's a little
less ornate, a little more industrial feeling. Chests and doors bear
dark skull insignia, wood is a dark charcoal color. All in all, there
is more grit to the game with this texture pack option, nothing is
clean and slick. There have been centuries of blood and dirt on the
blocks you now walk upon, and they're showing their age. Even the bed
you sleep in at night looks like it's been given regular use by
someone who didn't much care for personal hygiene.
'Light' option gives you more of a traditional minecraft feel.
Much of the game's original colors and shading are reflected in this texture pack option. Chests now bear the insignia of iron crosses. I'd
choose this option if you're looking for an RPG style texture pack
that increases the general quality of Minecraft textures but doesn't
impress itself too overtly upon the world.
I began with the High version of the texture pack, but after
playing with all three versions, I think it's the Dark version that
really adds the most to the game. Fortunately with the newest HD
texture pack patcher, you can quite easily play with all three and
make a decision at to what works best for you without having to
painfully install a new texture pack every time.
