Where it started

It started as a small texture pack but has grown into something much larger and grander than I originally planned.

The Genesis texture pack is still at the core of what I am creating and it's NOT your ordinary texture pack. It is important to understand the philosophy behind it, what it is, and more importantly what it is not!  Please read this to educate yourself before buying it so you understand what you are getting into :-)

What it is
It is a futuristic science fiction /alien-themed texture pack and in many ways, you need to “unlearn” the traditional way of approaching Minecraft.
To allow me absolute freedom in making the textures I want, I don't restrict myself to making textures that resemble traditional blocks in Minecraft.  To put it simply. A grass block in my texture pack may not look at all as grass or have the traditional green color as you are used to. For me, any block in Minecraft is an empty canvas for me to use and the aim of the pack is to allow you to build beautiful things that you can use in your projects.


Be prepared for blocks that don't look anyway near what you would expect in a traditional MC texture pack.  You are in a whole new world or dimension here. Using my reference page (this site) is always a good idea. In a sense, this is primarily meant for builders. You can of course use it in survival mode but at a serious drop in frame rate (depending on your machine and settings)

What it is not
It's not a total conversion.  It's very important that you understand the limits of making ultra-high-resolution texture packs.  If I were to make 1024x1024 textures for every block in Minecraft, nobody could ever run the game. But I will make as many as I can and it will indeed be interesting to see how many I can make before it becomes too heavy to run.  I also suspect that running my texture pack at 512x512 or lower will makes things easier to run.

It's not a real-life photo-realistic texture pack (like most other packs).  It's a far-out, fantasy world texture pack with stunning, awesome, and weird textures.



It's not designed for survival mode at high framerates! 
If you want that, then you probably need to use the 256x256 or lower pack that is available and use higher resolutions for your more calm and serene building sessions :-)

One thing you need to be aware of is that I have deactivated the colormap of grass and foliage.  This is actually not a limitation but a way to give me total control over how the flora (leaves, vines, grass, etc.) will look like.  As a result, you will discover gray-colored blocks because of this.  As I custom paint those blocks with, time, the grays will be replaced with my creations in all kind of colors :-)
