The SilverStone resource pack may be a couple years old already, but thanks to a dedicated author it is still receiving updates, and was actually updated as recently as this month. This was to add compatibility with Minecraft 1.8, so if you’ve already tried SilverStone in the past, now you can use it with the latest version of the game. The low resolution of 16x means even the worst computers that can play Minecraft should be able to initialize this particular resource pack without a problem. Despite this low resolution, SilverStone still looks better than traditional Minecraft.
While using SilverStone, you’ll find that different types of bricks which usually looked basically the same are much easier to tell apart. Stone bricks, cracked stone bricks and mossy stone bricks all feature improved textures, as do sandstone, chiseled sandstone and a few other blocks. Some textures like grassy dirt and tree leaves are literally the same as in Minecraft. It’s not clear whether this is because no replacements are planned, or the new textures just haven’t been made yet. It does appear to be only 50% complete on Planet Minecraft, so it’s probably just the textures haven’t been made yet.
With updates to several environmental blocks, the player GUI, terrain and particle effects, the SilverStone resource pack manages to get its hands on every visual aspect of Minecraft, usually changing the looks of things as it goes. It’s small enough that anyone should be able to use it easily, but it possesses enough definition that when you’re using it, you’ll know it. The fact it isn’t finished will probably make some players shy away from it, but there’s still plenty to see here, with more planned for the future of this resource pack.
