Minecraft Rails by Krist-Silvershade Minecraft Rails by Krist-Silvershade
SUPER Edit: As always, made with love in Blender!

Updated Version: krist-silvershade.deviantart.c…

A while back on reddit, someone posted a rendering of a somewhat simple 3D Minecraft rail. I thought "I can make a better rail than that!" Then I found out that the rails looked rather lonely, so I made some curves. HRmm.. still pretty lonely, so I made powered rails. Stiiiilll looking kinda simple there, Krist. So I went hog-wild and rendered a full scene!My goal was to make the rendering look realistic while still keeping the modular-pieces spirit of Minecraft. Hope you enjoy!

Question/Answer session on reddit!…

EDIT: Holy carpe-diem, you guys managed to get this on the "What's Hot" page for today! many thanks!

EDIT EDIT: I've been doing my best  to respond to all of you, but there's just so many comments! My absolute-most thanks to everyone who likes the piece, and I shall do my best to field any specific questions!

EDIT EDIT EDIT: I guess I'm replying to too many of you, becaue the DA spam-filter is blocking all of my current responses! I promise I'm reading every message I get, I'll respond to you in the morning if the filter has let up! Many thanks again.

EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT: Added a watermark cause ohmygosh so many of you are viewing this, I encourage re=posting but would like a way for people to find their way back here!

5Edit: Some people have brought to my attention that the Iron-Ore is upside down and that Powered-Rails cannot curve! Thank you! When I do a second edition of this piece, those issues will be corrected.

You may use this piece as you wish, under the stipulations that:
When you upload it, you post a link to my gallery and mention me as the original artist
You send me a link to your finished piece so I can see what you've done

You should get some one to make that a texture pack

I lost interest in Minecraft because of the over simplicity of not only the graphical style but what you are limited in building for curves and interior design.

If the game were to be released with these graphics I'd be all over it!

Look up some of the shader mods( use Google). If your computer came run them, they make the game look ridiculously nice. Combine that with the resource  pack in my gallery aNd you're almost there.

Used GIMP to do some minimal processing on the textures.
