Resource Pack

New Eden now has a custom Resource Pack which enhances the experience of players in game.  The pack is maintained by @sayukimaNS and makes minimal changes to the game to create a more realistic experience.

You will be prompted to use the pack when you connect to the New Eden server and you do not need to download anything yourself.

Each time you connect to New Eden the pack will be used automatically!  Don't worry though it will only appear for New Eden and you can still experience the wonderful "Default Resource Pack" on other servers and single player.


The pack makes minor changes to the look of some Minecraft Ores.

Natural blocks (Grass, Sand, and Gravel), will have a blend into other blocks.

Granite, Diorite, and Andesite have been modified to match with Cobblestone/Stone Bricks. Cobblestone now has random variations.

Wooden Planks have been recoloured accordingly, and have random variations in the texture.

Log textures now have shading on both sides to stand out more. Birch logs now have random variations.

All items related to Iron have been recoloured to have a darker appearance, similar to how Cauldrons are.

Doors now have proper 3D models.

Rails now have proper 3D models.

Some other items have been remodeled as well.

Glazed Terracotta has been retextured to be more practical for building - primarily as roof/floor tiles.

Water has been modified to have a more realistic colour and appearance.

Enchanted books now have enchant-specific textures.

  6. Once the JAR file has downloaded, run it.  Note: you need to run it using Java, if it opens in a program like FileZila you need to locate the download (likely in your downloads folder) and open it using Java

  8. Click Install
  9. Open Minecraft, you should see a new profile in the Profile Select list titled OptiFine, select that profile
  10. Click Play with the OptiFine profile selected and you should now be able to see the features of the pack that require OptiFine.
