Sketchy: ScribbleCraft For Minecraft

By Jim Rossignol on December 14th, 2010 at 8:18 pm.


I’ve been installing texture packs on and off for a while now when playing Minecraft, but this one is definitely going into the library for regular use: Via IndieGames, we have Scribblecraft, the hand-drawn texture pack. It’s lovely. Full of colour and character, while still getting across all the necessary information. It uses the HD texture fix, too, of course. Illustrative informational video below!

There will probably be no other Minecraft posts today. Carry on!

    Needs more cell shading

    I think I speak eloquently for the masses when I say DO WANT

    Ahaha, awesome. I really should play Minecraft again now.

    Excellent.

  5. Navagon says:

    That’s something special. I’ll have to give that a try.

    Still haven’t found a pack I like yet…

  7. mlaskus says:

    The flowers look brilliant, the water is nice too.

  8. Callum says:

    As much as I like the look of this one I keep going back to the original textures. They just have a charm to them which makes it difficult to use anything else.

  9. Wilson says:

    I think it would be better if the cracks when mining a block actually followed on from each other instead of changing all the time, it just looks a bit odd. But a beautiful pack, make no mistake. Just needs some animals and player skins in the same style.

    • Malibu Stacey says:

      I agree it’d be a little nicer if the cracks start in the centre & then increase across the block. It doesn’t look far off from that already though.

      The animals do jar a little still being the default models in the video but I guess it’s a work in progress.

    • Urthman says:

      Yeah, that’s weird. I’ve seen at least a dozen variations on the cracks animation and this is the only one that wandered around like that instead of just making the same cracks get steadily larger.

      (That solid color pack I linked to has a very cool animation that’s hard to describe — like the block is being deleted instead of broken.)

    I love the tic tac toe on the workbench.

  11. DevilSShadoW says:

    Absolutely lovely. I might just fire up minecraft and give this a try.

  12. Collic says:

    I think lovely is about the only appropriate way to describe that.

    Cant stand to play with the standard graphics nowadays and one of the updates seemed to break all the texture packs I have been using so I haven’t played in about a month. I also kind of ran out of ideas, built my water slide, built my floating island, built a big underwater complex and a big lava lamp, this looks very nice though so I might try to install it just to see what everything looks like.

  14. 8-bit says:

    I would also like to say thank you for the links to the forums I haven’t been on in a while and what is the first thing that comes up, someone is remaking Nos Astra from mass effect 2! some people just do amazing things with this game.

    I am looking forward for the Tron texture a dude is making.

    • mlaskus says:

      Trone texture? That sounds awesome, but I’m sceptical. To make Minecraft look like Tron, he would have to change more than textures. I fear that it will be a bunch of grey blocks with coloured, neon borders. :/

    • Tengil says:

      Are you talking about this?

    I wish servers could initiate a download to the client and set a texture pack for everyone who joins. It would really serve to differentiate between worlds, and would sidestep my biggest problem with these packs right now, namely: who cares what my creations look like to me in a multiplayer game?

  17. pupsikaso says:

    Wow, this might actually get me playing again. For a short while, anyway.
    Too bad the animals aren’t hand-drawn too =(

  18. 9squirrels says:

    That looks awesome!

  19. Malawi Frontier Guard says:

    I always wanted to exchange the simplistic textures of Minecraft with even worse ones.

  20. belstaff says:

    so smart post

  21. Strykary says:

    Excuse me, but your water looks like Listerine.

  22. tachyon says:

    Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for pointing this one out!

  23. CakeAddict says:

    It’s not a style of texture pack I like or would use myself but I can see that is very well done, I just don’t like the style itself.

  24. Gamedragon says:

    A “HD” texture pack for minecraft that actually uses it’s resolution for something meaningful?
    I must say that i’m intrigued. It looks pretty amazing, I may have to bid farewell to the idea that the texture packs bigger than 16×16 are cop outs.

  25. RogB says:

    ugh. Seriously? IMO This looks utterly appalling.
    its not even particularly well done, the colours are horrible.. its just .. lazy crap. Theres no charm.
    its like the rash of ‘doodle’ games on iphone.. ugly

    Personally I like the Doku RPG texture pack. Clean, nice palette (similar to snes zelda), consistent in embracing the 8-bit stylings of Minecraft.

  26. Barman1942 says:

    How do I install this? They didn’t exactly optimize it for the new texture menu. It doesn’t even show up.

  27. Noumenon says:

    It’s the bad graphics on Minecraft that kept me from ever playing it, so this would get me much closer to trying it.

  28. Jonathan says:

    This is really pretty. I like the pale sand very much.

  29. Eschatos says:

    This is lovely but it kills my framerate.
