Soartex Logo

Soartex is a smooth contemporary 64x art style for Minecraft. The textures, originally made by Soar49, have been developed and updated by fans over the past three years. These textures are carefully designed to be detailed, but not photo-realistic; organic, but not cartoony. There are two official continuations of Soartex: Fanver and Invictus.

Fanver is a community continuation of Soartex, a texture pack by Soar49. Fans are encouraged to contribute textures through the forum. These contributions are reviewed by graphic designers, who make friendly recommendations and ultimately determine the content of updates. Fanver is known for being faithful to the original work of Soar49, with as few alterations as possible.

Invictus is a second continuation developed by Shoeboxam with Goldbattle. The focus shifts to pattern and aliasing reduction for bigger builds, mipmapping optimization, presaturation for color depth in foliage, built in shaders and block models, comprehensive worldgen CTM overrides and a subtle departure from Soar49's original artwork for a stylistic revival. Development is visible on the Invictus Github, but public contributions are not being accepted.
