PureBDcraft is a Pack of Resources (also called TexturePack or ResourcePack) which redesigns games with retro or pixelart graphics by replacing most of their textures, 3D Models and/or config files by new HD versions. The result looks like a Comics with smooth&clean render (no noise and no gradients except for lights).
All PureBDcraft textures are Vector Based (composed of colored Vector Shapes) and follow the same guidelines to fit a unique ComicBook style. Some users said that PureBDcraft can remind (but is not inspired by) games like “The Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker”, “Disney Duck Tales HD” or “Valve Team Fortress 2”.
The main characteristics of PureBDcraft is that it is not only complete but also available in 6 different resolutions to suit any kind of computer (CPU / Graphics Card / Memory) and have many patches to make it suitable for various Minecraft Mods.

Story of a Success
PureBDcraft has been released in June 2011 with HD textures of all blocks, paintings and some items. Some days later, many users already downloaded the Pack and many feedback came out. I continued working on it every night creating dozens of new HD textures each week for months… and now years!
40+ updates later, PureBDcraft is still one of the most used ResourcePack for Minecraft (>20 million downloads) and is now also available for Minetest (a free C/C++ OpenSource clone of Minecraft) and Delver (a great Dungeon Crawler Indiegame).
Story of Modding
Minecraft is the first game with an “infinite” realistic world (thanks to Voxels). I loved it and started modding. Mods development for Minecraft was not as smooth as Aurora: Reverse engineering (JAVA), de-obfuscation, compilation and re-obfuscation was required!
I developed 2 simple Mods for Minecraft and released them online. One year later, my Mods ideas have been integrated to Minecraft.
The trailer is using Minecraft 1.11 with PureBDcraft 128x (the recommended resolution) and PureBDcraft 256x (the best quality/performance ratio) resolutions with some little special tweaks for the story (like sleeping Steve and Alex).
Have fun watching it!
