Minecraft may be practical, but its simple visuals can also be, for some folks, a bit gross. Which is why things like Chunky exist, to help make blocky maps beautiful. Advertisement Here’s what a “realistic” map looks like in vanilla Minecraft: It looks like Civilization II with the UI turned off. Advertisement Here, though, Darastlix has shared an image of the same map, only this time it’s been run through Chunky, a tool that can render Minecraft maps and make them look like this: Gorgeous. Note that this isn’t a tool for playing Minecraft. Chunky takes map files and “renders” them, which means crunching the map and giving the blocks a more natural appearance. It can take hours to process a single image like this, and it can only handle vanilla Minecraft terrain blocks (no players, mobs, etc), so it’s mostly just a tool for making very pretty wallpaper.

Pokémon Cobalt and Amethyst is a new Minecraft mod that takes the intersection of the two gaming worlds to an entirely new level. Advertisement If a game allows mods, you can be sure a fair share of them will be Pokémon-inspired. And while there are no shortage of similar projects created using Minecraft, Cobalt and Amethyst is by far and away one of the most ambitious. It’s also one of the more unique for being a map rather than a mod, meaning that anyone who has the vanilla Minecraft version 1.8.8 can simply download it and begin playing. Cobalt and Amethyst doesn’t just insert creatures and mechanics from the series into Minecraft either, it creates an entirely new Pokémon adventure. According to the creators behind the project, the story lasts over 60 hours and includes 136 Pokémon, mixing creatures from all over the series. While the map is supposed to be reminiscent of the original Game Boy versions, using classic sound effects and borrowing some of the music, the actual playable campaign is completely different. The game itself isn’t entirely pretty, but the depth of the world building is impressive in its own right. According to its lead producer, Phoenix…

Minecraft comes packed with simple graphics, but if you want to add a little visual flair to your world, modders have you covered. Here’s a guide to installing fantastic Minecraft shaders. Be forewarned, most shaderpacks are taxing on your hardware, and some players report a significant FPS hit even with top-of-the-line machines. There are ‘lite’ versions of a lot of shaderpacks that I’ll list below, but even those can be a rough on older video cards or computers without a lot of processing power. Still, if you’ve got the cycles and you’re looking to upgrade your experience, shaderpacks are there for you. Step One: Get Yourself Some Forge There are, theoretically, other ways to go about this, but right now the Forge API is the best way to install mods quickly and painlessly, so unless you’re a whiz already (in which case you probably don’t need this article), just download and run the Forge .jar and get on with your life (make sure to select the ‘forge’ profile from your Minecraft launcher when you next start it up).
