Better Vanilla [16x]

Better Vanilla is a 16x pack of community-made default-style textures (used with permission from original authors). The textures in Better Vanilla revamp default textures to look better, to be more vibrant, or to be smoother, all without straying too far from the original feel of the game.



  • Different skies for different biomes
  • Lighter water
  • More vibrant grass
  • Improved and more natural crops
  • Alternate grass, podzol, and mycelium textures
  • Animated Redstone
  • Greatly improved nether blocks
  • Smoother Diorite, Andesite, and Granite
  • Better sunset and sunrise
  • Atmospheric sounds
  • and more, check it out for yourself!
