Elveland Light Resource Pack 1.7.9
The Elveland Light resource pack for Minecraft does a few different things to update the look of the game. None of these are as immediately noticeable as the updates to water textures and shading, however. Players who have long complained about how cartoony and unreal Minecraft looks will take some solace from Elveland Light, which makes water look like actual water, with waves, ripples and other effects. With clever shading tricks, water is made to be reflective, as are a handful of other surfaces, like ice. These mirror images mean more loading of graphics, which means more strain for the computers of players using this pack.
Although shading and shadows get some decent updates from this pack, relatively little has been done to change the appearance of the sky overhead, either at night or during the day. Still, the mod creator includes a warning with his resource pack which states that the effects of the night sky may cause some discomfort to sensitive people. One major different from standard Minecraft is that glass textures, for blocks and panes alike, connect to one another when glass is placed near glass. This allows for some cool and interesting decorative patterns to appear in tired old windows and allows players to get the most out of their stained glass.
