Oddly enough, the OnionCraft resource pack has very little to do with onions. It makes some sense too since the pumpkin and melon are replaced by giant onions, so hopefully you like the taste of that vegetable. If you can get past the silly name though, this resource pack does have a lot to offer. It features lots of flat textures which look somewhat basic but actually cast some realistic shadows thanks to updated lighting effects. Lots of things look more segmented, like the bark on the sides of trees and even the dirt on the ground in some places. It makes the world look more symmetrical and less natural.
One of the coolest things about OnionCraft is the fact you can see through some bodies of water clear to the bottom. This only really works for streams, rivers and some small ponds and lakes though; it seems there is a limit to how far down vision will go, and you can’t see the bottom of the ocean without diving down some distance. This is great for people who like to build bases below the surface of the water because it allows them to find suitable patches of mostly flat land, saving them a lot of time on clearing space to build their home or base.
It might be a little strange, but OnionCraft isn’t technically compatible with the latest Minecraft release. It was designed for Minecraft 1.7, specifically 1.7.10, so if you try to use it with 1.8 or above you’re pretty much guaranteed to run into some issues. The low 16x resolution means anyone who can play Minecraft normally can also enjoy using this resource pack, so it’s highly accessible to boot.
