How To Make Animated Textures In Minecraft 1.5

So you’ve seen all the cool animated minecraft textures given motion sickness, but you’re probably wondering how to make animated textures in minecraft. Wonder no longer!

For starters, you’re going to need a graphics editing program that can handle transparency and layers, like Photoshop or GIMP.

Once you have the basic graphics editing tools, making animated minecraft textures is actually really easy. You start by selecting the minecraft texture you want to animate from the textures folder of the .jar file. Let’s take brick, for example.

How To Animate Minecraft Textures

The minecraft animation system works just like a movie reel. You can ‘animate’ minecraft textures simply by adding more ‘frames’ to the item.png. The number of frames you add (and by frame, I mean vertically duplicated item image) will vary the speed of the animation. More frames means longer, smoother animation. Fewer frames means faster, more jerky animations.

Space Mines, Minecraft Space Survival Map

From the creator of Wheel of Misfortune comes SPACE MINES, a sky island style minecraft survival map. Though it looks like all those other minecraft sky island maps, the creator has promised that it has the power to destroy hopes and dreams, which personally excites me.

You see, this isn’t just another minecraft sky survival map. This is a minecraft adventure survival sky map, or similar words to that. It has a storyline, whilst also encouraging you to make a melon farm – so something for people who like to complete tasks, and also something for people who like to have meaning in their lives.

Link of Faith, Minecraft Adventure RPG Map

Link of Faith is a myst-style minecraft adventure RPG map with over five hours of gameplay, stunning fantasy builds and more puzzles than you can shake your brain cells at. Well, maybe not that many, that would be millions of puzzles. Let’s just say the true number of puzzles involved in this adventure map is somewhere between two and the number of brain cells you have.

Minecraft Madness’ Medieval World Download (Small Castles, Epic Minecraft Builds)

MinecraftMadness64 is the handle of a minecraft builder who has spent the last three hours enthralling me with his complex minecraft creations, which have included everything from military barracks to town houses to a castle that Rapunzel would have never left no matter how many princes came her way. If you like attention to detail and a medieval aesthetic, you’ll love this guy’s videos, and his builds, many of which are available for you to download, both in minecraft map form and MC Edit schematic.

His tutorial on how to build epic things is particularly useful for anyone who feels tiny and insignificant when faced with the massive builds some other minecraft builders create. It’s also an excellent tutorial with regards to making your minecraft structures look detailed and impressive. Anybody can built a big stone box, but it takes a little bit of skill to create a big stone box that makes people’s jaws drop when they see it. Minecraft building is about aesthetics and design, and Mr Madness understands those concepts very well. His use of cobblestone walls, stairs and half-blocks is particularly impressive, as is the way he can transform buildings from the mundane to the sublime.

So whether you’re looking to download some medieval buildings for your server map, or if you’re wanting to learn how to build better minecraft structures, you’ll find something of value in MinecraftMadness’ frankly epic body of work. (Now place a stone button on the end of that log, there you go.)

Deadline Survival, Timed Minecraft Survival Map! (Seven Days To Save Yourself)

deadline survival minecraft map download

We’ve all played the old ‘minecraft survival map in a bedrock box’ map before. They’re fun, but once you’ve played one, you’ve played them all. Right? Right? Wrong. Deadline Survival adds a new twist to the old formula by adding a timer to the map. You’ve still got to work out a way to survive with limited resources and even more limited room, but now the time that it takes too grow some wheat or even get a tree to turn from sapling to wood source might be too dashed long. This map comes in two variations, a ‘normal’ mode and a ‘hard’ mode. The difference between them is whether or not you’ll be forced to delete your world if you should happen to die.

This is a survival map with a goal. You have seven days to find nine emeralds. These emeralds are hidden in the box you call a world. As you play, an ominous glowing counter marks the days until something terrible happens. Think Majora’s Mask. No, don’t think that, you don’t have time to think that and there’s no Song of Time to save you now!

As always, the rules are simple. Get emeralds and survive, or die trying. And odds are you will die because it’s not just the terrain that’s hostile. As you delve deep into the map to try and retrieve the nine emeralds you’ll encounter all manner of terrible creatures, snarling and clanking about the place with little regard for your safety.
