Pixel-8 is a Minecraft resource pack that’s been made for players who haven’t really updated their Minecraft client to the latest versions of the game but still want to utilize an 8×8 resource pack. Most 8×8 resource packs are actually quite creative and give the game a unique touch but almost all of them are only available for the latest versions of Minecraft and this is why players on older versions of the game, such as 1.8.9, can’t really utilize them. Fortunately, Pixel-8 is a great pack that players on Minecraft 1.8.9 can make use of without running into compatibility problems.
The textures of the Pixel-8 resource pack have an extremely creative art style that’s rarely, if ever, been seen before in similar resource packs and this is why you’re going to have a thoroughly refreshing experience when you utilize this pack. It goes without saying that the level of detail in the textures isn’t going to be as high as what you’re probably used to by now since the pack actually tones down the resolution instead of increasing it but, in spite of the reduced level of detail, the textures still look spectacular thanks to the aforementioned art style as well as the vibrant color palette that they come with. Noise also seems to be completely non-existent and this is another great characteristic that players are going to enjoy.
As mentioned earlier and, as the name of the pack implies, Pixel-8 has a resolution of 8×8 which is a step below the standard 8×8 that players are accustomed to. The lower resolution does mean reduced detail but the good thing about it is the fact that it allows players with low-end PCs to run the pack at smooth frame-rates since it isn’t that demanding on system resources.
