If you want to spice up your default swords then you’ve come to the right place! Zori’s 3D Weapons Resource Pack changes all the swords (and, in versions to come, the rest of the weapons and tools) from default boring versions to awesome new animated 3D versions (although the default weapons are already technically 3D… but still).
As stated above, only the swords have been updated so far, but they all look pretty damn good. Here you can check them all out:
Wooden Sword (can also be replaced with a wooden bat):
Looks like a normal wooden training sword, so instead of a childlike wooden sword like before, you will now have a proper training sword, that still looks like it hurts a bunch should you whack somebody with it.
Now this is actually one of my favorite models of this pack, as it looks like an ancient mythical blade, and although it doesn’t look sharp, it still looks painful should you smack somebody. A bit more macelike rather than sword like, but that is what you would expect from a stone sword. It is a bit of a shame that it is just the stone sword though, as you will want to upgrade to something better as soon as you can.
Now here is a sword! Or rather, a scimitar. The Iron Sword takes on an oriental look in this pack, which suits it quite a bit, it looks quite deadly and like something that could easily chop off someones head. Cool, deadly, oriental: the new Iron Sword.
The golden sword! Looks like something fit for a king or emperor, it is also animated, and will glitter once in a while! Looks sharp, looks great, and looks very ornamental, like something you’d hang on the walls of your throne-room. A sword fit for a king!
The most animated and intricate sword of the bunch, it looks great and sharp, but also very brittle. The top end hovers up and down, and although the sword looks decent, it also has a typical anime-look, which may put some people off. Personally, not my favorite, but still a decent looking sword.
Bows and arrows are planned, and so are alternate skins of the various swords. Currently one alternate skin already exist as the bat, with instructions on how to swap it in the .zip.
All in all, the models look pretty great, and they aren’t actually too much of a departure from the rest of the textures, they fit decently enough. Give it a try if you’re tired of the same shape for every sword, and want some cooler weapons in general.
