Minecraft adds textured terracotta blocks

Concrete fact.

In its continued quest to add every building material known to mankind, Minecraft has finally found itself at terracotta.

Oh, and coloured concrete, which somewhat surprisingly is not in the game already.

Concrete is made by combining gravel and sand. Terracotta is baked by smelting hardened clay in your furnace. The 16 usual coloured dyes apply.

Minecraft's latest PC snapshot update has added both.

Here's how they look.

Terracotta is notable for being perhaps the most textured construction block added to the game to date - look at those geometric colours, shapes and patterns, which come in four flavours. Who even needs texture packs now?
