Animal Tweaks 1.15 is a animal-focused resource pack for Minecraft 1.15 that makes a few minor changes to the wide zoological cornucopia of animals we currently have in Minecraft. But does Animal Tweaks 1.15 do enough animal-based tweaking to warrant an install for your version of Minecraft? Keep reading to find out!
What is Animal Tweaks 1.15?
Animal Tweaks 1.15 is a vanilla resource pack that is focused on changing minor aspects and small details when it comes to Minecraft’s animal kingdom.
What is Animal Tweaks 1.15 like to play with?
As far as resource packs go, Animal Tweaks 1.15 is pretty barebones. Clearly still in development, Animal Tweaks 1.15 doesn’t have a boat (or an arc?) load of content to sift through. Specifically, there’s three new textures to enjoy: textures for polar bears, ghasts and blazes.
We might as well tackle each texture one by one since this pack is quite small. First off: the polar bear skin. The new texture for Minecraft’s polar bears now have a much more menacing look compared to their usual nonplussed demeanour. Now polar bears are covered in pink and red facial scars, clearly demonstrating their tenacity and tendency to not run from a fight. It’s a cute detail, if not a bit menacing.
Next up is the ghast texture. Honestly, before looking at the differences between the two I wasn’t sure I could see any major changes between the Animal Tweaks 1.15 and the vanilla version. I assure you though that differences are there, and after a quick comparison you’ll see that too. The biggest change here is when ghasts become hostile. Rather than showing off their typical hostile facial expression, Animal Tweaks 1.15 replaces the texture with one that is much more horrifying. Namely, ghasts now scowl threateningly from afar as they blast you away with fireballs.
Last on the list in the texture for blazes. Now, technically speaking blazes might not be considered to be animals in the world of Minecraft, but we’ll let that slide. I guess one way to describe the change is that blazes’ facial structure is more similar to zombies and skeletons rather than Steve or Alex. Blazes no longer have pupils and instead have thick horizontal lines to represent closed eyes. This gives them a much scarier appearance, for sure. It also helps to differentiate them from players and evokes a more monstrous look, which is obviously appropriate.
Although the pack isn’t full of a lot of content, it's still early days. The changes here make for a solid foundation to further expand the pack into an expansive set of redesigned textures. But for now, if you’re a vanilla player looking for minor tweaks to Minecraft, give this pack a shot.
