The Best Minecraft Texture Packs

Updated on May 19, 2014

The best texture packs for Minecraft

Minecraft is a badass game with rough (yet nice), blocky graphics. By using top Notch (pun intended) Minecraft texture packs you can modify the look of the game and get a very different kind of appearance and atmosphere.

In this lens I'm featuring the best Minecraft texture packs. Be sure to recommend your favorites in the guestbook!

The jack-o-lantern design on the left comes with Minecraft texture pack Burntcustard's txtpack.

Psst... New in the series: The Best Minecraft Comics

What are Minecraft texture packs?

According to Minecraft Wiki, Minecraft texture packs are files used to change the in-game textures of blocks, items, mobs and other things. That means that they are used to change the way how the game looks like. They are usually zip files containing various PNG images.

Eldpack

This Minecraft texture pack isn't named Eldpack for nothing! Eldpack gives you an old-school look with some vividity and nice, fine details.

Jolicraft

I think these words of the author tells quite much about this texture pack:

"My name is Jolicoeur, so I called it Jolicraft. It's pronounced 'Jolly Craft' by the way. My name means 'Happy Heart,' so I guess Jolicraft means 'Happy Craft.' So maybe I should have called it HappyCraft, because I'm generally quite happy."

Because everyone seems to be recommending Painterly Pack, I wanted to do so as well!

You can create your own customized Minecraft texture pack with Painterly Pack. Choose from over 1,000 graphics and textures!

"Painterly pack is a complete, fully customizable, native-resolution graphics package for Minecraft which attempts to improve the graphics of the game while still attempting to keep the overall spirit of the game intact. You can view many of the graphical improvements Painterly offers through the links at the top of the page."

      Sphax is really awesome ! It has a newlook feel but it keeps the style of the minecraft vanilla texture pack. The faithful resource pack is great as well if you don't wanna change the game around too much. I used misa's texture pack for a while as well. The one i'm using a the moment is soartex fanver pack, it's a clean resource pack, I'm a great fan of it ! Great lens !

      I like the Faithful resource pack, or the Willpack resource pack, I'm not sure it that's Willpack or Will pack... check both if you want to see them!

      Two more you should add are Faithful 32 x 32, and Sphax BDcraft. Sphax is my favorite because when you are building literally EVERYTHING looks good together.

      i don't know how to download any mods or skins or texture packs

    • profile image

      anonymous 4 years ago

      @anonymous: You go to finder, library, application support, scroll to MC, click the folder texture packs, the drag the folder of the TP into it. Make sure that it's just the texture pack you're dragging in, not the TP in the folder, because then it will not show up. Hope I helped!

    • profile image

      anonymous 4 years ago

      @anonymous: Download a texture pack.

      Depending on size (32x32 and higher needs an hd patcher such as MCPatcher)

      Click on 'Go' at the top of your screen (Menu).

      Hold down the 'Option' or 'Alt' key and click 'Library'.

      Go through 'Application Support', then 'Minecraft' folder, and open texture pack(s) not the mp version.

      Drag and drop the texture pack into the folder.

      Note: If using 32x32 or higher texture, download MCPatcher or the like and also drag that into your minecraft texture packs folder.

      Double click it to open and use the patch or fix button usually located at the bottom.

      Load minecraft, go into texture pack and choose the one you want, click 'Done' and start playing. Good luck!

      The tekkit or technic texture pack is called sphax purebdcraft and it is the only texture pack i have and it is awesome. If you get the hd it is so much better especially with randomobs. (not many people like the better grass option on mcpatcher but you can look at pictures if you might like it)

      im a HUGE painterly fan. the water looks especially nice if you use MCpatcher (i highly recommend mcpatcher bc it allows you to use some of the best most high def and downright AMAZING texture packs including LB photo realism Glimmars steampunk and many other godlike texture packs that make minecraft jawdropppingly gorgeous)

      try glimmars steampunk texture pack

      it gives an amazing 80's feeeling with amazing weapon looks and amazing mobs some of the items have animations eg. the diamond axe is a chainsaw with animated blades and the diamond pickaxe is a drill(animated) and all of the armour makes you look like a cyborg :)
