If you’re looking for a simple resource pack which modifies Minecraft’s basic textures without adding a ton of resolution or detail to the game while maintaining the original look and feel of Minecraft, then there’s good news. Rexide’s Vanilla Pack aims to do exactly that. With a standard 16x resolution and a handful of textures simply imported right from the files of vanilla Minecraft, this pack is about as basic as a resource pack can get while still being called a resource pack. Now sure, there are others out there with a lower resolution, but many of those 8x packs just look like garbage.
Compared to Rexide’s Vanilla Pack, simple Minecraft textures are actually kind of bland. The pack does introduce a bit more color and variety in textures, and some of the updated blocks and items look fantastic. The furnace is an excellent example of this – there may not be a better 16x furnace in any other resource pack out there. One nice point is that this pack makes it easier to tell dispensers and droppers apart. By giving the two blocks slightly different graphics, you’ll never get stuck thinking you’ve got the right one when you do in fact have the wrong one.
Overall you get a lot of improvements to the basic textures which get changed, and the ones which remain the same (like beds) look fine when mixed together with the updated ones. This aspect of Rexide’s Vanilla Pack actually makes it a fair sight better than most packs which claim to cling to Minecraft’s vanilla roots while simultaneously changing the appearance of everything in the game. By including several vanilla textures in its makeup, this pack is truer to the theme than many others.
