The 4 Colors resource pack is arguably one of the best-looking resource packs for Minecraft right now. Despite the fact it is still heavily in development and nowhere near finished, the textures which have been completed so far look amazing. Ore blocks, cacti and the tall grass and ferns all look especially good, with crisp detail, proper shading and a variety of colors in each texture. The name of the pack is a little misleading though. It’s not that every texture utilizes four colors, but that every color section on a texture uses four colors. Most textures will actually have 8 or even a dozen colors because of this.
While the visuals provided by the author do look great and show a lot of promise for the rest of the 4 Colors resource pack, the fact is the thing is barely 10% done. The pack needs so much more work that it might as well have not been released yet. It’s a shame too, because packs like this always make Minecraft look weird and broken, with a majority of vanilla textures which don’t catch the eye surrounding a bare few textures that demand attention. To use this pack in its current state might be disorienting to some players because of this.
If you only use resource packs which have been finished, you’ll want to steer clear of the 4 Colors resource pack for a while. On the other hand, if you don’t mind the way the modded textures will stand out in an almost garish fashion among all the normal, vanilla textures, then you might want to try this. There are no mobs, items or other textures to speak of at this point, but the boosted 32x resolution will still demand more resources than vanilla Minecraft, even if this pack looks mostly the same.
