John Smith Legacy Texture Pack 1.21 β†’ 1.20, 1.20.6

Author JimStoneCraft

The John Smith Legacy texture pack for Minecraft was created in 2013 and is continuously improved by its creator and designer, James Stone. By the way, his username is JimStoneCraft. The main theme of the pack is the Middle Ages. If you’re wondering about the difference between John Smith Legacy and JimStoneCraft Edition, the author James Stone explains that John Smith retains the normal and traditional style, while JimStoneCraft (JSC) uses slightly smoother cobblestones and ores. There are also several adjustments to some textures in the game, and James Stone personally prefers to play privately with JSC. You can get both versions in our download section.

The John Smith Legacy texture pack, also known as JSL, is a continuation of the original John Smith texture pack, which was created by JohnSmith2007, a Minecraft player and texture artist. The original John Smith RPG texture pack was first released in 2010 and gained popularity for its distinctive medieval-themed textures. However, due to the creator’s departure from the Minecraft community, the texture pack was no longer updated, leading to the creation of the John Smith Legacy texture pack by James Stone. The focus on a medieval style has remained unchanged over the years, making it well-suited for building churches, castles, or ancient buildings in Minecraft. The John Smith textures are carefully designed to evoke a sense of nostalgia for classic RPG games. Many players use the pack in their builds, videos, and multiplayer servers, and it has become a staple in the Minecraft modding and resource pack community.

Once you install John Smith Legacy, you’ll notice that the blocks and items have a resolution of 32×32. Some players may also be looking for a higher-resolution version, such as the John Smith Legacy 64×64 version, which is actually available. However, it’s worth noting that support for the higher-resolution version was stopped years ago, and the pack is only playable in Minecraft 1.7.10. While it is possible to use it in newer Minecraft versions, many textures may not work. We recommend the classic 32×32 resolution.

Mod Support

In addition to Vanilla Minecraft, the John Smith Legacy texture pack also has versions intended for Minecraft mod packs. On GitHub, you can find a project called “John Smith Modded,” which adds support for Minecraft mod packs. This project is officially listed as JohnSmith Technician’s Remix and currently supports FTB Modpacks, Tekkit, and Tekkit Lite. The development team is also actively involved in the Feed the Beast forum. It also supports OptiFine features and adds textures for the mods Dramatic Doors, ShulkerBoxTooltip, and Mod Menu.

3D Models Add-on

The John Smith Legacy 3D models add-on is an additional pack that can be used in conjunction with the John Smith Legacy resource pack for Minecraft. It provides three-dimensional models for certain blocks. These 3D models replace the flat, two-dimensional blocks and add new aesthetic things like 3D fences. The add-on was first released in 2015 by the user Filal_ who plays with JSL since early beta versions. It can be downloaded and installed separately, and it is compatible with the same Minecraft versions as the main pack. If you like 3D blocks, try the Classic 3D texture pack and 3D Ores texture pack.

  1. On the mcpe version, when I spawn a wolf, it’s a plain gray object with a big box around it. Also, when it’s tamed, it turns red and some body parts disappear. This was also a problem with the Ozocraft texture pack. Please fix this.

  2. It’s been so long since I heard about this pack. Thank God the bedrock version is not in the marketplace and stay free and the link leads to the official site of the pack which is updated to 1.17.
