Jordan, my about to be 14 year old, created this free Minecraft download thingy. I call it a thingy because I can never remember if it’s a plug-in, resource pack, texture pack, or what. So I call it a thingy.
The Early Years
Jordan created this Minecraft resource pack the summer he turned 13, a year ago. I don’t know what it is about doing creative things in the summer for him. (He’s an August baby.)
The summer he turned 4 he spent the entire summer doing every single possible thing on Starfall teaching himself to read. Yes, he taught himself how to read by using that site. I only showed him the stuff where they teach the alphabet. After all, he was only three years old. I made the mistake of leaving him alone for a minute. I come back and the kid is on digraphs! He’s just never been afraid to click on things, poke around, and see how they work.
Why He Created This Minecraft Resource Pack
If you ask why he created this Minecraft resource pack he’ll quickly say, “Because I could.”
A friend of mine told me that by the age of 12 most kids have been told they can’t do most things and are afraid to try new things. But my kid has no fear to fly to new heights.
I am both amazed and scared all at once.
What People Like This Minecraft Resource Pack
Apparently it’s as easy as “The Ace of Spades”, whatever that is. I think that means it makes the standard setup easier to understand and use. Folks like that…a lot!
How This Benefits You
If your kid plays Minecraft they may want to have this Minecraft resource pack. So far, people seem to really, really like having it when they play the game.
You can remind them that a 12 year old created it… a homeschooled 12 year old boy … who isn’t afraid to try new things.
