2. Features

Metadata / Biomes

More than 1,200 textures can be used using Metadata values and biome changes.

64 * 64px textures

This pack basically uses 32 * 32px resolution textures, but using 64 * 64px textures for plants, expresses a detailed and beautiful landscape.

Cylinders

“Better Foliage”, the MOD that enriches natural expression, is applied to cylinders, drums and so on.

pseudo 3D expression

Using CTM (Connected Textures Mod), built-in function of OptiFine, enables pseudo 3D expression in 1.7.10 where 3D model editing is impossible.

CTM roofs

CTM is used to make the connection natural, such as the roof tile orientation and awning pattern.

Reflected glass and metal

Supports specular mapping. When a shader is used, light is reflected only at specific parts, creating a glass or metallic character.

Japanese and Chinese-style

Japanese and Chinese-style materials! You can make a Taisho Roman city, Japanese and Western mix city, and Chinatown in a Western-style town.

Unique biome system

Biome table

If you try to put out, with biomes, roof textures, windows and interior textures at the same time, these biomes may compete and you may not get the texture combination you want ! …… MiniaTuria 1.7.10 tried to solve such a cace with an original biome system.

Not only that, MiniaTuria 1.7.10 succeeded in increasing the types of roofs. At first glance, it looks too complicated...but experience it, so you will be convinced this is convenient.

3. Requirements and Recommended MODs / Plugins

Forge and OptiFine


  1. An environment that enables useing HD textures (resolution of 32 * 32px or higher), is required (OptiFine).
  2. CTM (Connected Textures Mod built in OptiFine), is required.
  3. MODs / Plugins that enable manipulating both metadata and biomes, is needed.
So,
  1. Single play - you neede to install Forge, which is the premise of MOD such as World Edit that enables operation of meta / biome, and OptiFine.
  2. Server play - you need to install at least OptiFine, even if you use server plug-ins instead of MODs.
    (Forge MODs are more convenient for building, so recommend using Forge even for server building.)

III. Initial settings of Better Foliage MOD


When introducing Better Foliage MOD (highly recommended), some textures will not display as designed with the default settings. Let's adjust the MOD settings first.
  1. Textures such as brick flower beds in the grass block (ID2) are not displayed correctly if they look like images. This is the result of the MOD function that naturally shows sides of the grass block.
  2. Explanation image1
  3. On the play screen, open Better Foliage settings with theF8key and select "Connected grass textures".
  4. Explanation image2
  5. Change "Enable" from true to false. ("SnowEnable" can be either)
  6. Explanation image3
  7. Close the setting screen byEsckey. If the brick flower bed textures look like the image, initial setting is complete!
  8. Explanation image4
  9. By the way, if you set "Dense mode" frome false to true in the "Extre Leaves" setting, the density of leaves increases. Whichever you prefer, the pack is designed so that the texture is connected cleanly when set to false.

5. About the sample world

Catalog and samples


Catalog and samples are useful to know what textures are available.

the sample world

The difference between "sample world" and "catalog" is that the former is arranged in the order of metadata values.

Biome Chart by using blocks


There is a chart showing the original biome system introduced in the section "Features".

Biome Chart

On the top are roofs, and on the bottom are color changeable textures, such as awning tents and windows, etc. You can see that the top remains the same no matter how much the bottom changes. You can see that there are two groups of biomes and the type of roof has doubled. Detailed explanation on another page!
