John Smith Legacy for Vanilla Minecraft



Long ago on a cold night while searching YouTube for something to watch I started watching JimPlaysGames and pacbilly play a game deceptively simple looking game called Minecraft, after a few weeks I found out about dark room mob spawners to get all the good stuff, the first videos I watched were Monkeyfarm's YouTube tutorials, I then watched way too many Lets Plays and got hooked on the distinct look of the John Smith texture pack.

After about a year or so, JohnSmith (original author) decided to no longer update the pack, the pack was too good to just let it die so the community took over and John Smith Legacy was born, I joined the project right at the beginning but slowly over the years all the other member went onto the sickly sweet modded game and the millions of textures needed for that, I decided to specialise in the Vanilla game, took over the hosting and control of that release.

Lots of people have helped with this project over the years, submitting new textures, bug reports, questions and general encouragement, thank you everyone and may I hope this pack continues.

I know some people like this sort of thing so here's the current specifications for my main workstation and the John Smith Legacy Server.

Hardware and Software

The first PC I bought was an AST 486 DX2 with 4MB of RAM, 120MB HD and a 14inch VGA Monitor back in 1995, I paid £1200 for that.

Every system I had after that was built by myself, this has got much easier over the last ten years or so with Windows configuration and hardware compatibility being so much better.

Specification for my custom built system that was originally assembled on 2nd December 2011, I've updated this over the years with a new Ultrawide monitor, GTX 1080 Graphics card, SSD's and backup drives, the Ultrawide monitor and GTX 1080 Graphics card have both been sold and the system has now been reperposed as the John Smith Legacy Server.

Things were started to get a little slow when develping the pack so on 3rd September 2021 I decided to make a new workstation.
