What is a resource pack?
The packs resources or texture pack are just like the mods, the creations of the community . This involves modifying the appearance of blocks and items in the game to customize its general design to your tastes.
They come in several distinct qualities or “resolutions”. This is the sum of the pixels that can be counted from one stop to the other of each cube. There is an unlimited number of these variants, but here is a non-exhaustive list of the most famous: namely 16 × 16 , which is the resolution of the base pack, the 32 × 32 , the 64 × 64 , and finally the high resolutions : 128 × 128 , 256 × 256 and 512 × 512 . Some resource packs go up to 1024 × 1024 or 2048 × 2048 .
The higher the quality of a texture pack is high , the more "heavy" and consumes power, and can make your Minecraft slow. However, you can use Optifine to lighten your game and therefore be able to use a high resolution pack.
You can vary the styles. Many packs are similar to the medieval world, but we can also find horror packs, some said to be “simplistic”, thus making the colors more vivid and the textures more sober. The creators are not lacking in imagination to offer varied and sometimes fun creations.
