Everyone loves the blocky 8-bit charm that Minecraft has, It was one of the things that made it what it is. In saying that, you really have to appreciate the amazing work that modders have been able to achieve with this game. They have taken a game that did not look realistic and have been able to make scenes that almost look photo-realistic. One of the latest pictures that I have been blown away by is this Minecraft cloud mod.
The original clouds in Minecraft, much like everything else in the game were made up of squares. Plain white squares floating across the sky were as detailed as they got and this was perfectly fine. This Minecraft cloud mod, has really done some amazing things to the sky. The fact that they were able to take a basic solid shape that was in place already and turn it into a cloud scene that looks as good as any game out there at the moment.
Before you get too excited, this is PC only and it is going to require quite a bit of horse power at that. The level of detail in these clouds might look super realistic, but also requires a total beefcake of a PC to run. As hardware costs come down, things are going to be bright knowing that modders are able to achieve this kind of beauty. This mod is still in development, so we can only imagine how many amazing changes that they are going to make to the game by the time the mod is near completion.
Here are all the images showing off the Minecraft cloud mod in all its glory! You can view the images in a higher resolution on Imgur. You can find more information on this mod from the official development website.
