Dependencies: Zenity(optional, but highly recommended), ImageMagick
Platform: Linux (most likely won't support other platforms)
- Download this file: https://github.com/minetest-tools/mcres ... master.zip
- Extract the file
- Run the script that was extracted
Code: Select all
wget https://github.com/minetest-tools/mcresconvert/archive/master.zip unzip master.zip mcresconvert-master/mcresconvert.sh
You will need to have bash, ImageMagick, Zenity and unzip, to run the script. These are fairly standard on all Linux machines, but may be difficult to get for other OS's. The script checks beforehand whether you have the required programs.
After the conversion is done, the converter prints out all found MC texture and resource packs, and displays how well the conversion went, giving you an indication of how many of the minetest blocks will be covered with new textures from this resource pack.
As of right now, it can convert about 400 textures from MC resource packs to Minetest. This covers almost all basic in-world blocks, and should be very pleasing to most players. If you spot a missing block, please ask in this forum thread or post an issue on github.
Unlike other converters, this converter can handle chests, doors, grasses, leaves, fences, and even health hearts, breath bubbles, the hotbar textures, Sun, Moon and digging cracks! It also correctly converts any px size texture without issues, whether it's 16px or 256px! It even converts the default character skin!

So which texture pack would you recommend?
Well, the converter gives a score to each texture pack. The higher the score the more likely that the texture pack looks better in the game, so we can look at the score to see which texture packs are going to look better by looking at the scores. I've made a quick list of the best texture packs by comparing scores for packs that I've converted, and the list looks like this:
