Grimdark Battlepack

The Grimdark Battlepack (formerly "Kal's Arms & Armor") is a modern adaptation of the traditional Minecraft textures. I've drawn inspiration from other dark fantasy worlds to provide textures with greater detail that will be more fitting in your medieval, fantasy, and steampunk Minecraft worlds.  What originally began as just an armor and weapons pack has been expanded to include decorative blocks, sun and moon textures, a custom skybox, and in the most recent update, custom colormaps for certain biomes to provide spring and autumn vibes. These additions still belong to the more decorative side of Minecraft, allowing you to pair this pack with a block pack of your choosing or just stick with the vanilla block textures for building.

In the latest update I've also added my variant armor textures as subpacks, now with a single download you can customize your look by choosing between Light, Medium, Heavy, and Royal armor looks.

I've also created a companion behavior pack that adds support for some of my custom swords. You can now craft katanas and daggers in addition to the default broadsword to further customize your look in Minecraft.

**You must enable Holiday Creator Features in order for the Behavior Pack to work.

IT'S SO GOOD! It actually brought tears to me eyes- I've never seen combat counterparts look so pretty- I've seen Minecraft the WRONG way. Cheers m8

Hello, author, can I get your authorization to upload this module to the Chinese version of My World?

you can put one with only the armo

This is easily one of the best Armour packs! Thanks for your wonderful work and all your efforts!
The only problem I found Is that there are 2 moons at night (the actual moon and the SkyBOX one)
I might ask for a version without the custom sky/sun/moon only on the next update? (I know how to manually remove anyways so it isnt important)

Aaalso, I LOVE your samurai armor pack. I may ask/suggest for a knight plate armor pack if you really like that theme as well, and have the time for it.
Thank you again!!!

The Skybox one is actually meant to be an exo-planet, originally inspired by some of the Destiny skyboxes. It sounds like it didn't translate super well to Bedrock though as you are not the first to make this request. I'm going to try and figure something out for the next pack so it's an optional thing (and may take a stab at improving the skybox in general).

I'm also very keen on a more traditional plate armor pack - my skills just weren't up to the challenge when I created the 'heavy' armor set. It's definitely on the list for the future.

amazing work.
thanks for uploading it here :D

One of the best armour and tool pack.The only nitpick that i have is i wish the default netherite armour have blue flame isntead of the normal one(you know like soul sand valley)but thats it,very well done
1
I wish I'd thought of that to begin with! I've struggled with the netherite textures in general. Much of the detail gets lost when you work with a color palette that's so dark. I may try out blue flame in the future. Thank you for the feedback!

This is the best armor texture I've ever seen! can you make a version just for armor and custom items? I mean without the changes in the sky and the recolor of the leaves
1
Thank you! I haven't tested the individual packs in conjunction with the behavior pack yet, nor have I combined all the armor packs into a single Armor-only pack, but you can grab individual armor & item textures over at Planet Minecraft.

To remove the sky Is really Easy: rename the .mcpack to .zip, extract, delete the "environment" folder inside "textures", then compress everything again as .zip, then rename to .mcpack and voila!

This just looks incredible and awesome at the same time i hope i can use it only as a resource pack because i just loved all the armor desing that u did so i needed to bring my positive vibes on it. Good job and keep going.
1
Thank you so much! If all you want is the armor, no need to use the Behavior pack! The armor variants are just subpacks.

Bro Kalam0n I'm a big fan of your youtube channel and I'm so glad u made this pack but I've been DYING to have u make the Greatsword accessible on bedrock so please, PLEASE make an update soon.

100/5

I still haven't found a good tutorial on weapon models for Bedrock. Still on my to-do list though!
1
I wouldve giving this a 5 star if it wasnt for the multiple download links but this pack is amazing so far i havent gotten any glitches
1
Just one download now! Thank you for the feedback!

Hey Kalam0n, one glitch I've noticed is that enchanted armor does not render correctly when you view yourself in the inventory. It's nothing too big, but it might be something you want to fix. Everything else is great though.
1
I know I'm a year late to this comment, but I believe I've fixed this in the most recent version but please let me know if you see it again!
1
Can I please post this on my YouTube Channel? I'll give you Credit.
1
Sure! As long as you link back to the download page here and don't reupload you're welcome to feature it in a video.

Can you make bows?
1
Looking for bow variants? I've been thinking about it. They're just a little more complicated since there's multiple textures.
1
I Loved It😁
1
Can u make a zip for it and the heavy armor and the other weapons dosent show up for me so im gonna give it a 3 stars for now and im on mobile so pls make a zip for it
1
Hey, sorry about that, they were included in the submission, not sure why they're not showing. But while I sort that out with MCPEDL, you can grab them off Planet Minecraft.
