MONOCHROM is a resource pack that’s been designed with the goal of giving Minecraft a vintage touch that players simply cannot get with other resource packs. Before we go into any of the pack’s detail, we’d like to emphasize on the pack that this pack completely throws all color out the window in order to give the visuals a classical touch so, if you can’t tolerate the game’s visuals without the vibrant colors, this really isn’t the pack to go for. However, if you can see yourself forgoing colors in favor of a creative 1920s look, this is a pack that you won’t be disappointed with.
The MONOCHROM resource pack has been designed by the same person behind the Farbenlehre Medieval resource pack, and it actually uses that particular pack as a base for all its textures so you might notice a few similarities here and there. The defining aspect of this pack is, of course, it’s greyscaled color scheme that gives it such a unique look. One of the biggest drawbacks of the MONOCHROM resource pack is the fact that it makes it really hard to tell different kinds of block apart from one another so it really isn’t a wise choice to use this pack if you’re playing Minecraft in even a remotely serious environment because it’ll hinder your abilities quite a bit.
The MONOCHROM resource pack requires Optifine to function optimally, so it goes without saying that you’ll need to have it installed beforehand if you want the pack to function as it’s supposed to. MONOCHROM has a resolution of x16 which is great since all players, even those with low-end PCs, will be able to use it without trouble.
