With nearly a million downloads from MinecraftForum alone, the Faithful resource pack is one of the more popular packs available right now. However, since it hasn’t been updated in over a year, it only works with Minecraft versions 1.6 and 1.7 – it won’t work at all with the latest game client. Like other “faithful” resource packs, this one aims to preserve the unique look and feel of Minecraft while simply improving the textures rather than swapping them out for totally different ones. The 64x resolution does a lot to help with this endeavor, and the pack looks pretty good despite its age.
Veteran Minecraft players will immediately notice the increased level of detail even in simple, common textures. Wooden planks look especially nice with a grainy, natural finish that makes them look more like actual wood than even resource packs with a much higher resolution. Diamonds actually appear to have facets on them, making them pop and look 3D. The Faithful resource pack isn’t without a few quirks though. For one, when holding a cake item in your hand it will look rounded, circular. Once you place it on a surface though, the cake becomes square like normal. Maybe this is just a bug.
If you’re looking for a pack to make Minecraft look like a completely different game, you’re going to be disappointed by this Faithful resource pack. On the other hand, if you already like the way Minecraft looks but wish it wasn’t so rough around the edges, then you’ll probably really like this Faithful 64×64 resource pack. It’s kind of hit or miss like that. While it won’t impress anyone looking for a change of scenery, there’s really nothing bad to say about this pack, so give it a try if you want to.
