As one of the newest citizens of New Vegas, I’m currently locked in a life and death battle with Caesar’s Legion. I’ve never hated a faction as much as I hate those barbaric dog head wearers, and I never imagined I’d spend so much time getting people off of crucifixes. Needless to say, this working Pip-Boy prototype totally made my day and will probably make yours. All we need now is a way to hook it up to useful things, like Internet Banking (so you can keep track of your bottle caps) and electronic day planners (quest trackers) and Google Maps (map view.) Oh the possibilities!
Oh Fresh Prince, you are by far and away my favorite Sims 3 modder. Why? Look at this. It’s a plane. A plane your sims can actually use to get around their world in. Yes, it actually works, although on the same way a car does, by driving along the predetermined streets. You might think it looks a little strange driving a fighter jet around. I think it looks awesome.
These days everything is about realism and high definition. Give me high resolution pixel reality or give me death. When it comes to Minecraft, there are several HD realistic texture packs to choose from and I’ve played pretty much all of them in my quest to review all the HD texture packs.
From that guy who bought you LB Realism (only the most famous realistic HD minecraft texture pack) comes this RPG styled effort. It takes a lot of its design aesthetic from LB Realism, but adds an RPG twist that will appeal to anyone with RPG soul.
Smooth modern is a compilation realistic HD Minecraft texture pack that has its sights clearly set on a modern aesthetic. If you want to bring Minecraft into the 21st century, this might very well be the compilation you’re looking for.
This is a lesser known texture pack, but actually a very well done one, and it’s an excellent alternative to the LB texture packs that are so cliche right now. There’s still a touch of whimsy to this pack, but the textures are sharp and clean and it’s definitely worth a look.
Minecraft Enhanced is a very high resolution Minecraft texture pack, but it is more than that too, it is also a mod that functions something like a complete reworking of the visual settings and options associated with Minecraft. It’s Minecraft, Jim, but not as we know it.
One of the best realistic HD Minecraft texture packs at the ‘lower’ end of the resolution scale, Misa’s realistic probably contains the best balance of art and realism I’ve ever seen. We all know that realistic texture packs can take their attempts at realism too far. Misa’s keeps it real, so to speak, but does so with an eye to beauty.
Better Blocks is a simple minecraft mod that increases your block options when playing minecraft with new minecraft fences, new minecraft gates, and new minecraft stairs. It’s one of those mods that’s so close to vanilla in feeling that makes you wonder why the features included in the mod weren’t just put in the game in the first place.
Better Minecraft Gates
Fences have been around for months now, but none of the Mojangles have seen fit to include a gate in any of the updates. Better Blocks includes an option for gates in your fences, as well as introducing a whole new set of fence types, including obsidian fences, iron fences, brick fences, diamond fences and more!
Better Minecraft Slabs
At the moment you can have wood slabs, cobblestone slabs and stone slabs. With the Better Blocks mod you can have all the slabs you ever dreamed of. Brick slabs, mossy cobblestone slabs, wool slabs of all colors.
