I should preface this post by stating that I like the base MCPE textures and I’m not desperate to change it, but given that it costs so little to test them on my phone I thought I’d give then a go.
I need to follow up that preface with the statement that whilst I like the base look I am deeply in love with a cartoony look and have been since I saw it on the Yogscast Jaffa Cake Factory series, but the cartoon version that comes with MCPE (for a small fee) seems to have some issues showing the right texture for the right items and it’s very distracting.
So, with all that said, here is Owla but using the Natural texture pack. My review is “OK but a little busy and dirty looking – the search for one I love goes on!”
The Boy and I have decided to join forces in MCPE to build a pirate world using a cool little seed (seedsftw) that generates a lot of islands connected by an ocean and we are going to film the whole doggone affair for his blog.
The idea came from this brilliant poster on his wall. I’ve no idea where the poster came from, but I could spend hours exploring it 🙂
Once I had found the seedsftw seed I knew it would be perfect for recreating that map and my son loved the idea. Here’s what the seed world looks like when you first spawn there.
I’ve filmed the first and second day of building and you can see the vids over on his blog but let me tell you I’ve not had an easy time filming. The first day took four attempts to get a isle film thanks to my tablet deciding to try and download huge app updates just as we started. I’ve taken my tablet to one side and had a word. It won’t be doing it again anytime soon, I can promise you that!
Day 1 is up here. Day 2 will come soon.
