The pack featured today introduces a visual style that is inspired by medieval fantasy as seen in many a roleplaying game. Not only does it make the game's visuals more detailed, but it also comes with a slightly different set of colours to match the new style. As you can guess by now, the pack is not aimed to be faithful to vanilla Minecraft.
Also included with the pack are newly designed weapons and tools that actually look distinctive from each other. For example, the wooden ones look much rougher while diamond gear is beautifully decorated compared to iron. To complete the fantasy oriented look and feel, the author also designed a new darker interface that is not as bland as the original and actually pleasant to look at.
Keep in mind that the pack is not entirely finished yet, so you might come across blocks that have not been redone yet.
Texture packs can be installed easily by using our Curse client. After opening the client, navigate to the "Get More Textures" page, type the name of the texture pack in the search box, select the pack of your choice and hit the install button. Be sure to patch your game too using MCPatcher to make use of all the pack's features.
Arestian's Dawn is a great choice if you are a fan of fantasy roleplaying games. It gives Minecraft a new, more detailed graphical style, complete with new items and a matching interface.
