In Minecraft, almost everything can be customized. And the book will focus on customizable textures. For those who are unfamiliar with textures, try to digest the following explanation. Textures are image files that are used to 'paint' the world of Minecraft. Every block in Minecraft is covered with textures. A good analogy for it is a gift box. A gift box is just a regular box that is covered with a gift wrapper. And in the Minecraft world, the blocks are the gift boxes, and the textures are the gift wrappers. Now, on the internet, you can download numerous texture packs. Fundamentally, texture packs are files that contain a preset number of textures. And if you download and install them, you will have the option to change how your Minecraft world will appear on your screen. To put it simply, you are getting new gift wrappers for all the gifts you have under the Christmas tree. Since there are hundreds of texture packs that can be downloaded on the internet, it becomes difficult for players to find the texture pack they want to see on their Minecraft game. This book is the solution for that problem. After this introduction is a long list of 70 handpicked Minecraft texture packs that you will surely download and use. Every items on the list has a precise description on what you will see in case you install them. Also, the book will provide the technical specification of each pack, its popularity on the Minecraft community, and the link to the web page wherein you can download the texture pack. Anyway, there is no need to stall you too much here, so have fun and I hope that you find the texture pack that will suit your tastes and make you play and enjoy Minecraft longer.
