Official Packs

ALL USERS ARE EXPECTED TO USE THESE RESOURCE PACKS WHEN VISITING

  • All projects on The Voxel Box are built using one of the Official Resource Packs.
  • These packs includes server-specific tools like the Dooplicator and Magical Paintbrush. Understanding and using these tools is much easier with the intended artwork for them.
  • Use of one of the official Resource Packs is mandatory for submissions to the whitelist, as it is important we are all looking at the same thing when we make an aesthetic statement about your submission.
  • Remember: You only need to use our resource packs while playing on the Voxel Box!

The Voxel Box's resource packs composed of primarily tiles and items by AzulCaballero, plusnine, doublenum, KupoKupo, giltwist, rosedragon, space_e, DukeVindzor, Giltwist, 2brostudio and other members of The Voxel Box.

Other packs used as pixel-sources or stylistic ideas include The Painterly Pack, Jolicraft, Glimmar's Steampunk, Inspiration, and Sphaxcraft.

Resource Pack Troubleshooting

  • Users with modified clients (especially "HD texture" mods) may find the resource pack crashing their client. If this occurs, revert to an unmodified client and/or install The VoxelModPack to play on The Voxel Box.

Using These Textures on Your Own Server or Map

We are glad that the wider Minecraft community have enjoyed our original resource pack tiles, items and concepts, and encourage you to use the files and ideas in the zip files to help you put a custom pack together for your server or custom map. Here are some things you should know:

  • You must not use this pack, or modifications of it as an "official" pack on a pay-to-play server.
  • Please give credit where credit is due.
  • You must host your own files. If we see traffic leeching coming often from your website, we will take appropriate measures to stop you.
  • Sorry, The Voxel Box staff will not make you a personalized or custom pack. Use programs like Paint.net or GIMP to edit your own files. It's fun and easy!
  • Remember that many items in the pack are specific to The Voxel Box and its plugins. Eliminating drops from blocks and installing plugins like VoxelDoop will go a long way toward making the resource pack function in a manner more similar to what you see on The Voxel Box.
  • These packs are lousy for playing the Minecraft Survival game, as they were intended to re-make it, not to conform to it.
  • Design your server's player experience carefully!

Legacy Packs

The Pangea Pack

The Pangea Pack was the Official texture pack of The Voxel Box in 2011.

Download: The Voxel Box: Pangea Pack 1.0 - December 12, 2011 (final version)

As this pack grew ever-more distinct from the Painterly Pack by Rhodox, the Pangea Pack opened up new ways for players to build with Minecraft on The Voxel Box. All Mining-related blocks were replaced with new materials like Marble, Limestone, Granite and even Copper Plating, giving builders more colors and more material types to build their amazing structures in Pangea and beyond.

  • In the rare instance you are visiting the world of Pangea, this is the pack you'll want to use.
  • Members: All remaining builds in Pangea must stay in the Pangea Pack!
  • Staff will not review new Guest builds using the Pangea Pack.
