Minecraft texture packs, or resource packs as they’re sometimes called, improve the original Minecraft textures of blocks, items, monsters, and more.
There are plenty of Minecraft HD texture packs which completely change the default feel of the game, some of which we’ve decided to showcase in the list below. While some change the vanilla game into something completely unrecognizable, others retain the original values of Minecraft by improving upon existing textures without making the game look too different from what Minecraft players are normally used to.
We’ve decided to feature both types of texture packs in the following list. Hopefully you’ll find what you’re looking for among the unique and varied texture packs ahead.
