Mickey Joe's "Barely Default" is a pack made out of love for Minecraft, and wanting it to be better. I aim to add immersion to your game, and to build upon the default artstyle.
The pack adds many details to your game, from big to small, all while respecting the vanilla Minecraft look and feel of the game - simply better.

Through the years that Minecraft has been in development, the artstyle has changed a lot. It's gotten better and more detailed, but Mojang often doesn't go back to make the older stuff look as good as their new standards. I've addressed that - among other things - with Barely Default.

From tool retextures to mob remodels, anything that's mediocre in Minecraft gets touched up by me until it's on par with the most beautiful parts of the game.

I even take some creative liberties to make my pack stand out from your run-of-the-mill default edit.
