Fresh Animations - 70% complete

 

Fresh Animations is a work in progress resource pack that gives an animation overhaul to the
creatures in the default look of Minecraft. The aim is to make the mobs more dynamic and believable.



  Optifine Required


This pack uses a feature of Optifine called Custom Entity Models (CEM) to add new animations.
IT WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY WITHOUT THESE FEATURES!

FAQs

If you ask a question that is already answered in the spoiler below, I will probably ignore it.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is Fresh Animations a mod / datapack?
A:
Nope, Fresh Animations is just a resource pack! It does require a Optifine to work, though.

Q: Can you make a Bedrock port?
A:
It's not as simple as porting it. To make a version that would work on Bedrock, I would have to start from scratch and it would end up being completely different. So that's not something I plan to do.

 
Q: What software do you use?
A: Blender for concepts, Blockbench for entity model creation, Paint.net for texturing, Notepad++ for animating, Minecraft Java Edition + Optifine.

Q: When will the next update come out?
A: Whenever I feel happy with the new content. Please don't ask for a release date.

Q: Can you add player animations?
A: Sadly no. Optifine currently doesn't support player animations. It may be possible with other mods, but I haven't looked into it yet.

Q: Why isn't the ____ animated? Can you add it?
A: Not all the mobs are animated yet. Fresh Animations is a Beta pack, so it is developed over time, so new mobs animations will be added in major updates.
I work and add new animations at my own pace, so please refrain from requesting animations.

Q: Why do some mobs have white eyes and no new animations when I load the resource pack?
A: This occurs when you haven't installed the Optifine Mod correctly, OR Custom Entity Models is not enabled in Video Settings. The requirements are listed in the description above ^

Q: Why do some mobs have big purple/black parts when I load the resource pack?
A: This often occurs when the pack is loaded in. I think it's caused by an Optifine bug. To solve this, you need to exit the game and re-launch it.

Q: Is Fresh Animations compatible with ____ ?

A: Probably not completely. Textures for some mobs break with other packs as they are resized in FA. Other packs with custom entity models won't work as it would override the models FA. Otherwise, textures for most mobs should be fine.
A solution for some packs is to make an 'addon' version using Optifine CEM Parts.


Q: The packs is warning me that it's made for another version of Minecraft. Which version should I get?
A:
Any version of this pack should work as intended in most versions, as long as there's a version of Optifine to run it. I recommend using the latest version for the latest updates and new animations. Don't worry about the version warning!

Q: Is there a way to use Fresh Animations with Sodium/Iris for Fabric?
A:
Fresh Animations required Optifine features like Custom Entity Models (CEM) to work. Sodium/Iris does not have these features, so using Optifabric is the only way to use it with Fabric. There is a fabric port of Optifine CEM being developed, but it's in alpha stages of development and does not work properly with Fresh Animations at this stage.

Q: With Fresh Animations 1.7, why are the mobs invisible / have invisible parts?
A:
This happens with some game versions including 1.18.1, 1.18 and 1.17.x. Use Optifine 1.19 HD U H9 or newer to use the main pack. for 1.18.x and 1.17.x, use the alternative version of the resource pack (FreshAnimations_v1.7_Alt.zip).
