Other than additional custom models, we'd also like to know if you would like any blocks or items re-textured in general. We would really appreciate your feedback on this as it would be really great to have our resource-pack be influenced by the community itself. After all, this is being made for you!

Maybe re texturing the blocks to make them look more fantasy like for the camps, with a combination of modern blocks to fit into cities like Manhattan, But you guys do you.

Here is my criticism on the project, before I begin I'd like to say thank you to the artist for doing this for our wonderful server. The spear textures are also extraordinary, much appreciated! -

1, the Greek shield.

There is a lot of missed potential here, not only that but it looks more like a nordic shield than anything I have ever seen before. The aspis shield, or the hoplon, is round and circular in nature, yes, but the front holds no form of riveting or bolting that I see; the largest part being the massive ball in the center. This is inaccurate, and can be instead made into something much greater. With the aspis shield design, you could perhaps paint on the symbol of Camp Half-Blood; a pegasus with a painted orange or bronze colored background.

Example;

My solution would be to simply save that for the Nordic roundshield and instead make a new texture featuring an accurate depiction of the hoplon, with the symbol of a pegasus; I myself replicated a pegasus in Minecraft terms and could be used on the shield


2, the Roman shield.

Again, a lot of missed potential but instead of a total redo just a few edits to its texture would suffice perfectly do. The scutum has always had a center ball that was used with the Greek shield, simply convert that over. Plus it had a few minor details of metal that are depicted down below.

Plus, a change of color from the red to a purple; as that is Camp Jupiter's colors after all. Another minor thing would be the design of the shield; the 12th Legion had designs that looked like this -

I believe these things would make the texture appear much more authentic and more befitting to the resource pack!


3, the Greek sword.

This has no relation to the riptide texture which was also a greek sword, or a xiphos. Simply copying over the riptide texture and removing some of the design aesthetic would work nicely!


Onto the more positive side, the spears/bow/riptide texture is phenomenal. Elysian, you are truly a talented man!



For what I would like to see..

A kopis sword texture for the Demititans! Silver in color, the kopis sword was renown for being a brutal and effective weapon that the Demititans would be sure to use if ever given the option between the Xiphos and the design said above. Example here;

A canteen or vial of nectar! The drink of the gods, it is commonly used in role-play so seeing it as a texture would be even more immersive. Even for PVE audiences, it being a custom item that gives you health. Example here;

Ambrosia, the food of the Gods! This also is commonly used in RP and could increase immersion for PVE and RP audiences, it being a custom item that gives you health same as the nectar but far more effective. Don't really have an example here other than it being normally served in squares.


That's all I gotta pitch on.

Maybe make the weapons more befitting to their godly metals?
Example: Riptide could have more of a bronze look to it.

Would you guys like any of the default minecraft items retextured? If so, which ones?
For example, we will be making leather chestplates look like T-Shirts so we can make camp shirts. We could also work on mobs.
