As the name suggests, Radiant Pixels is a resource pack that has some of the most vibrant and radiant textures that we’ve seen in quite some time and, on top of this, the pack also does a great job of making sure that the art style of the visuals doesn’t stray too far from the vanilla style that’s always made Minecraft so great to look at. The pack’s development started back in January 2015, and it was properly released in April 2016, so that’s quite a lot of time in development and the pack’s quality definitely shows that all this time was well worth it.
The Radiant Pixels changes pretty much all of Minecraft’s vanilla textures and replaces them with much more vibrant and brighter variants of themselves. The pack’s textures have a very simplistic and vibrant design and they’re an absolute delight to look at while also being really easy on the eyes. The pack’s color palette is also one of the most vibrant out there and these vibrant colors are absolutely phenomenal when paired with the pack’s clean and appealing textures. The pack also makes various changes to the item textures, but it makes sure that the changes don’t make their designs too different from what they are in vanilla.
Alongside all this, perhaps the best feature of the Radiant Pixels is its extremely clean and minimalistic user-interface. A lot of resource pack implement new GUIs into the game, but most of these GUIs are quite overloaded and can actually be hard to look at. However, thankfully, the user-interface of this pack is quite easy on the eyes and doesn’t clutter up the screen. The pack’s resolution is x16 which is, of course, the same as vanilla Minecraft’s resolution, so you probably won’t have any trouble getting it to run without frame-rate troubles.
