Q: How much content is in the resource pack?

A: Our resource packs are under development, so they don't have all the game textures changed yet. They gets weekly updates with new content.

Q: If I pay for it, how long will I have access to?

A: If you purchase our subscription on Patreon, you will have 30 days of access to all updates during that period; after that, you will still have the resource packs versions you downloaded.

Q: I want to cancel my Patreon membership, what I need to do?

A: This official article will help you: Cancel my membership - Patreon

Q: I'm using the resource pack but my game doesn't looks like the screenshots, what should I do?

A: In the screenshots and videos we use the shader SEUS PTGI and the ModernArch 1024x/Polybrick resource pack, so to get the same results you need both.

Q: My game keeps crashing/lagging, what should I do?

A: First, make sure that you installed the game correctly by following the guides below. If the problems still persist, you can allocate more RAM to Minecraft as shown in the section below. You can also decrease the game's resolution and Render Distance for greater performance.

Q: What exactly is ModernArch?

A: ModernArch is a resource pack and also a mod, which can be downloaded separately. They change and add textures and models within Minecraft. This resource pack still doesn't have a lot of textures and needs a lot of processing from your computer (especially if you use the highest resolution) so it should be used just for visualization/rendering. This should not be confused with a shader.

Q: What exactly is Polybrick?

A: Polybrick is stylized plastic brick PBR resource pack with hand-drawn vector art. It change and add textures and models within Minecraft.

Q: What exactly is Southcraft?

A: Southcraft is a medieval themed resource pack. It changes and adds textures and models within Minecraft.

Q: Do I need shaders to use the resource pack?

A: No, you can use our resource packs without shaders, but if you're using ModernArch or Polybrick it is highly recommended as most features are only available with shaders.

Q: I'm having problems with the resource pack, where can I find help?

A: We have a guide down here that explains how to install our products, just follow it exactly and you will have no problems. If you still have problems, contact us on our Discord server: Designio Server

Q: I need a refund, what do I do?

A: You can contact us through Patreon in direct messages.

Q: What are the system requirements for using the resource pack?

A: There are no recommended system requirements, as it depends on many factors to define it, such as the shader used, the resource pack resolution, among others.

Installation Guide

ModernArch/Polybrick Resource Pack

1. Before you continue, make sure you have a stable Optifine version. After downloading the file (we are using ModernArch as an example), you must have a .zip that must be extracted to a folder (you can use 7-Zip or Winrar).

2. After extracting the .zip file to a folder, move that folder to the Minecraft resource packs folder (usually
%AppData%/Roaming/.minecraft/resourcepacks).

3. You can now open the game and select the resource pack from the selection menu. To prevent the game from crashing while loading the resource pack, allocate more memory for Minecraft in the launcher.

 

ModernArch Mod

1. Before you continue, make sure you have a stable Forge version. After downloading the file, you must have a .jar that must be moved to the mods folder (usually %AppData%/Roaming/.minecraft/mods).

Mod folder

2. That done, the mod should look like this in the game:

3. If you want higher resolution textures (1024x) for the models, you need to download them separately. You can find the textures here (you need to become a Tier 3 patron). You don't need to use these textures, it's optional. 

4. If you chose to use the 1024x textures, to install them just open the mod using Winrar or any other program of your choice and drag the "assets" folder (that is in the textures .zip file and must be downloaded separately) inside it.

Southcraft Resource Pack

 

1. Before you continue, make sure you have a stable Optifine version. After downloading the file, you must have a .zip that must be extracted to a folder (you can use 7-Zip or Winrar).

Allocate RAM for Minecraft
 

This may be necessary if you are experiencing problems with ModernArch or Polybrick

  • Open the Minecraft Launcher and select the version you want to play (either Bedrock or Java)

  • Select Installations from the tabs at the top. You will see a list of releases below, but if you haven’t set up any specific versions to play, you might only see the most recent version. 

  • Hover your cursor over it and click the three white dots on the right side, then click Edit.

  • You will see a screen with the name of the installation, the version, and a few other settings. Click More Options and scroll down until you see JVM Arguments. This box will contain a lot of code, but all you need to worry about is the first snippet that looks like this:

  • -Xmx2G

  • The number at the end is the amount of RAM Minecraft uses. Change the “2” to however much RAM you want Minecraft to utilize. The recommended amount is half of your RAM and at least 8 GB. 

  • It’s possible to let it use all of the RAM you have available, but whether it actually takes advantage of full utilization depends on if you have anything else running and open in the background. 

  • Once you make the change, click Save and launch the game. You should see a difference in performance immediately.
