The main focus of any PVP resource pack should be to clear up the HUD, simplify textures to make the game run more smoothly and maybe do a couple other things, like giving the bow a special flashing graphic that tells when an arrow will fire with full power. Brut’s PVP resource pack started out as a small, personal thing for a server owner who wanted to create a world full of unique visuals for their players. It was also designed specifically to lower hardware lag and help the game in playing smoothly, which is conducive to any great PVP resource pack.
Despite the simple graphics and lighter workload on your processor and GPU, Brut’s PVP resource pack is still set in a 32x resolution, which means most of the textures have twice as many bits as their vanilla counterparts normally do. You’ll definitely notice a more finished look to many of the blocks and items throughout Minecraft, many of which look far less jagged and blocky because of this. The changes extend beyond items and blocks too – Brut’s PVP pack changes the font for in-game chat to help keep it from blocking out so much of the bottom left corner of the screen.
This might not sound like a big deal to some readers, but those who have played on servers with several hundred people who are all active at the same time, well they will understand how the constant chatter can cut off part of the screen. Not everything about Brut’s PVP resource pack is good though. For one, the fire effects are nothing special, and particles for lava also seem to be very bland, even when compared to vanilla Minecraft.
