The development team behind Minecraft mades always some minor changes for the Christmas holidays, the most striking of which is the alteration of all the chests in your environment. Instead of the standard wooden look, each normal and large chest resembles a wrapped gift. The normal chest features red and yellow colors, while the double chest has a green-white-red color combination. This Easter egg has been present since 2012 and is repeated annually at Christmas. Perhaps this isn’t enough to put you in a Christmas mood while playing, which is why we’re presenting you with the fantastic Sphax XmasBDcraft texture pack today.
As you already know from the other projects of Sphax84, PureBDcraft, VanillaBDcraft, and GrungeBDcraft, this project also contains some cartoon textures. However, you will immediately notice the differences. XmasBDcraft gives Minecraft a festive and wintery makeover. The free files include lots of snow, special presents, custom furniture, and festive hats.
Changes in XmasBDcraft
One of the most noticeable changes in XmasBDcraft is the abundance of snow. Everywhere you look, there are snowdrifts and snow-covered trees. You will see that the earth blocks are covered with snow when you open your world. Then, if you look up in a snowy biome, you will see something new. Spruce trees are decorated with garlands and turn sometimes into oversized Christmas trees. Furthermore, to see the new graphics of the hostile mobs, you should spend a night outside. For instance, the creeper has a Santa hat, which looks really cool. Even passive mobs, such as pigs, wear red Xmas hats.
There are also some changes for PvP items. The most significant is the gold sword, which looks like a candy cane. The other sword blades look the same as in PureBDcraft. Additionally, the leather armor looks extraordinary, strongly resembling the real clothing of the Inuit. Even if the netherite armor provides much better protection, you might want to try out the leather armor in single-player mode.
Custom furniture and decorations
XmasBDcraft also adds custom furniture and decorations to Minecraft. These items and blocks are designed to fit in with the festive theme of the pack and include things like wreaths and stockings. At this point, we offer you a tip on how to improve the look of your houses, specifically the roofs. The XmasBDcraft resource pack changes the acacia slab so much that this building material appears like a regular hut roof. Therefore, we strongly recommend using this block for your bases. By the way, you will no longer find the acacia slab under its old name, but under “Xmas High-Tech by BDcraft”. In addition, you can also do other things with acacia blocks. For example, you can add tablets and laptops to Minecraft with acacia fences.
We recommend first trying the XmasBDcraft pack in creative mode and having a look around because you don’t recognize all textures immediately. Please note that Sphax84 and the BDcraft team update all textures each year and release them in December. In one of the latest updates, new Christmas music and 3D models have been added.
