The SixtyGig resource pack is faithful to Minecraft’s original look in that none of the textures really look out of place or seem to stand out more than they normally would. The increase to a 64x resolution does make the majority of the blocks, items and icons pop more than normal, but the fact they are all doing it together means nothing seems off. The increase resolution isn’t used to make things look more realistic though – this pack makes Minecraft look more like a cartoon than most others. There are some decent shadow effects at work here as well.
The only real issue with the SixtyGig pack is, it was made to run with MCPatcher. This isn’t a problem if that’s the mod loader you already use, but if you’re used to using Forge and you have a number of Forge only mods installed, you will need to make some adjustments before you can try this resource pack. While you can still use this resource pack without using MCPatcher, you won’t get the best experience and if you’re already going to the trouble of getting the pack, it seems like a small bit of extra effort in return for what you get.
Another issue with the SixtyGig resource pack which is probably going to be more frustrating for more people is the fact it doesn’t work with Minecraft 1.8 and up. It was updated recently to 1.7.X and while there are plans to get it compatible with the latest version of Minecraft, no such version of the resource pack exists yet, so there’s nothing for it. If you don’t mind dialing back your game version and perhaps making another small concession, this pack does have some great textures to offer.
