There aren’t very many resource packs simpler than Brownie Points. It is one of the few, proud packs which actually cut Minecraft’s default resolution in half, resulting in textures which are so blurry and muddy that it’s hard to tell what you’re actually looking at sometimes. Despite this fact there is definitely a market for packs like the Brownie Points resource pack – it’s perfect for players with computers which struggle to play Minecraft normally, as well as those who do just fine but also want to do other things while playing Minecraft simultaneously.
The Brownie Points resource pack actually makes exemplary use of the simplified textures. Thanks to the way things seem to blend together, you end up with enemies which camouflage into the environment quite well. Creepers seem to get the best camo out of this deal and that’s very bad for players, because those sneaky green bastards are already hard enough to spot until they’re right on top of you. The lava and water textures along with their movement effects actually look very nice here, which is rare even for higher resolution resource packs. Brownie Points does some things very well.
It also does some things very poorly. Livestock, especially sheep, look more basic than ever, with faces that are actually kind of scary because they are so simple. Grassy dirt looks like something literally spewed vomit onto a patch of earth and just left it there, thinking it would make a good design. There are other issues too, but all of these stem from the low resolution of the Brownie Points resource pack. There’s nothing to be done to fix them, and the pack does have some good points, so you just have to take the bad with them.
