Within resource packs in the new snapshot, we're now able to edit the block meshes as well as their textures. Examples of what this can achieve:






We could customise it for the server as well - actual bells in the Gondor RP instead of dragon eggs, for example. Can you guys think of anything else this could be used for?

I haven't looked into that snapshot yet, but I guess it means that we can basically do anything we want with blocks. Now we just need a RP Artist who has enough time and skillz and knowledge to do this for all the blocks.

To be honest I'm not sure how I feel about that statue being able to exist in minecraft. It's too... perfect.

We could certainly have a statue design (for example) that retains the blockiness/pixels of Minecraft, whilst having more detail that you could achieve with 1mx1m blocks. It's just an example.
