This is a blog to document the progress on a Minecraft texture pack I'm making in the style of Gearbox Software's Borderlands.

I plan on iterating on these textures so feedback is very much appreciated. Let me know what you think through comments and/or email. Thanks!

The Future of Bordercraft

Hey everyone!

I hope that you all had a good holiday season! I do indeed live and breathe. I have to apologize for not updating yet. There's a lot going on over here and it's been a bit of a mad house in my life. Things are finally settling down and the dust is clearing. So, I should have an update soon.

Since I last posted, I've been through a move (a rather horrible one I might add), a lot of family related issues, Christmas and New Year's craziness, and of course, working on Borderlands 2. So I know that it's been a long time coming for the update, but I hope that at least explains a little for my sudden drop off of communication.

There will be an update. I'm hoping for getting one in maybe at the end of this month. It will be very interesting, I think since I've been working on theactual game the style is based on for a little while now. So, I'm optimistic that it will go quickly. And the stuff is going to look ten times better. ;)

I would like to thank all of you for your patience and encouragement. I'm glad to hear that a lot of people are still looking forward to the update. It means to me that there are still people who appreciate it and that really makes me want to finish it. I promise that there will be an update as thanks to all of you.

It's the least I can do.

    1. I would like to thank you for your brilliant work on what is, in my opinion, the best game to come out in the last decade. Thank all of your comrades, too! I don't know how you guys do it, but Borderlands does no wrong for me. Everything about it is just amazing and it keeps getting better. The art style is easily one of my favorite aspects of the game.

      I can't wait for update! It's definitely my favorite texture pack. :D

  5. Just wanted to thank you for all the work you've done on this pack. I totally understand how busy life can get. If you worked on Borderlands...fantastic game. Really can't wait to play the second one.

    I also can't wait for the update, but take your time! Hopefully, Mojang will give you some breathing room now that 1.1 is out lol.

    Thank you so much for the texture pack and the many, many, many hours of enjoyment it and minecraft have given me.
    Wishing you all the best in your endeavours,
    Zidders Roofurry

  8. I've been a huge fan of Borderlands, and I'm just now getting into Minecraft. After seeing this on an old Yogscast video I found this site and I knew I had to get the texture-pack. I really appreciate all the amazing details you have added to the game, it will really make playing Minecraft so much more enjoyable!

    I am really looking forward to BL 2 as well, and would love to see the continued support for this pack. Thank you so much for the hard work you have put in to everything!

  13. Just read your latest post here, I currently run an LP series and have been using a different texture pack. I'm looking forward to the Minecraft Update 1.2 and especially your texture pack. As soon as you have it available, I know that I'll be starting up a Season 2, and hopefully I can use this texture pack.

    Hang in there, and know that I support you and I can't wait to see your update.

  16. Nice of hearing from you - and Bordercraft - again.
    i wondered what happen and really hoped it was only Bordercraft 2,

    So lets hope your mad house is getting better...

    Can't decide what i want more:
    Borderland 2 or Bordercraft for 1.1 (1.2?)...

    I Think i want both...

    Best Wishes.

    1. Hey guys!

      So sorry for disappearing again!

      I don't have much to show just yet. In all honesty, we've been really chugging away at Borderlands 2 at work so I haven't had much energy to come home and do similar art for even more time of the day. That and I didn't get to have my computer properly set up from my move till a couple weeks ago.

      The update should come out soon. I just have to sit down and evaluate what I have. I'm seriously just considering doing a really nice overhaul on the whole thing since the original textures are super old. Not to mention that I've really gotten the art style down now. So yeah. Please expect it in the next couple of weeks!

      I love that you guys are keeping contact with me. I appreciate it and it helps to know that your work is cared about. ;)

  20. Ashley, just take your time. I really appreciate that you're dedicated to updating this but with Jeb and co. working like maniacs, you might have your work cut out for you lol.

    Just give Claptrap a hug for me and keep making Borderlands 2 awesome!

  21. Like Zidders sayed, take your time.

    And thank you for the update. ^^
    Good luck with Borderlands 2. ;)

  24. Absolutely love this pack and can't wait to see the new version of it :) I play with this pack exclusively when it is working with the current version (and even make small fixes myself for small patches to keep using it!).

    Thank you so much for your work on this. Even if you never release another version of it, I am eternally grateful for your work on it, as it improved my minecraft experience tenfold!

    I wish you luck with your work on Borderlands 2.

    (I still want to see a donation link!)

  29. What is an open world games? Wikipedia defines it as a type of videogame level design where the player can freely roam through the world and is given considerable freedom to interact with objectives and the like.
    I decided against including the likes of Deus Ex and the Thief series, which despite the freedom they offer to the player, are strictly linear titles—at least in terms of exploration.
    Rather, the showcase you see before you is a collection of the best open world experiences in which you, the player, can explore freely and to your heart's content while engaging in a myriad of activities unrelated to the "main story", if there is one.

  30. Waiting for Bordercraft 2/Borderlands 2 Texture Pack as well :) The work you are doing is awesome.

  31. It's been a half year ago since the last update and three months since the last post...
    Well, guess there has te be some results by now.
    Could you please give us some screanshots of what you've made so fare, we're pretty curious.

  32. Mattiern, Borderlands 2 is going to be out in September. The odds are pretty good that it's crunch time over at Gearbox. We probably won't see an update until some time after the game ships. Until then, I suggest using this excellent texture pack that is pretty close to Bordercraft http://bdcraft.net/

    1. You're right.

  33. just a comment on your work...I LOVE it!! Both for the game and Texture pack. I have noticed that the food meter and health meter do not look like the "borderlands" style in 1.8. Am I missing somehting?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hey! Great, great, great texture pack. My favorite BY FAR. I love every part of it! Except... when I get to a certain biome (may be from a mod) with lots of jungle type trees and climbable vines the textures are just plain green cubes. Hoping you can squeeze in time to update :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. It has been quite some time since I have checked this page for an update and 6 months since the creator said anything. I understand that the game is only a few days from launch now, but even knowing that they are busy, just a word from them saying that they still intend to work on the project would be nice. Anyone else agree?

  36. i feel that this texture pack is dead.
