BetterVanillaBuilding Resource Pack 1.19 / 1.18

BetterVanillaBuilding is a Minecraft’s resource pack which is specially designed for the builders, who wants more realistic textures which can transform their houses or building look much greater than they often do. Even though the graphics of the vanilla world would make a lot of the gamer bases feel satisfied and contented, they are certainly not created to meet the needs of most building communities in Minecraft since even the greatest constructions have a tendency to look dull because of the effects of many noisy textures. But fortunately, the new release named BetterVanillaBuilding resource pack has performed a great job of dealing with those problems to provide the builder groups of Minecraft accurately what they want to enjoy the game. The BetterVanillaBuilding has been created with the purpose of keeping the main art style in vanilla Minecraft unchanged while enhancing the textures at the same time in different methods to help the gamers have a better playing experience.

The textures in this set of textures integrate pretty well with the others, have quite plenty of details and come with lively and bold colors which bring everything in Minecraft to a higher level. The most impressive feature of this pack and also the major cause why BetterVanillaBuilding is a great option for most building communities is that it creates a perfect cohesion between all of the textures. Thus, even when you place 2 totally different pieces next to each other, the unique graphics of the texture pack can, in fact, make it seem like that they are blending perfectly together. What’s more, this is true for each mingling of blocks which you might come up with. BetterVanillaBuilding is designed with a standard resolution of 16×16 in Minecraft so gamers will be able to run this pack without any problem as long as their PC can run vanilla minecraft at a stable frame-rate.

BetterVanillaBuilding should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 1.19.2 - 1.19.1 - 1.19 - 1.18.2 - 1.18.1 - 1.18 - 1.17.1 - 1.17 - 1.16.5 - 1.16.4 - 1.16.3 - 1.16.2 - 1.16.1 - 1.16 - 1.15.2 - 1.15.1 - 1.15 - 1.14.4 - 1.14.3 - 1.14.2 - 1.14 - 1.13.2 - 1.13.1 - 1.13 - 1.12.2 - 1.12 - 1.11.2 - 1.11 - 1.10.2 - 1.10 - 1.9.4 - 1.9 - 1.8.9 - 1.8.8 - 1.8.1 - 1.8.6 - 1.8 - Bedrock Edition - PE

Optifine is required for this resource pack to work properly since BetterVanillaBuilding uses optifine's connected textures feature. When player places 2 different blocks next to each other, both of the blocks will change their texture. As an example: when player places plank type next to bookshelves, the color of the bookshelves will change. Get optifine here.

    I was wondering if it’s a glitch, that when the biome shifts the leafs dosn’t fade to the right colour, they just become it?

  2. gspot

    im having an issue wuth the sword renaming or that in genral none of the named thing are diffrent just a normal sword with a name for me

  3. Novle

    Hi! I love using this texture pack since it still stays true to vanilla but enhances certain things. I was just wondering if there was a pay to edit the colour of the XP bar? I found a way to edit the text colour and orb colour but I’ve been having trouble finding a way to edit the bar colour itself.

  4. Andre

    Does all of this work on Bedrock? Or is it just the texture Pack that works on Bedrock?

    1. Admin

      Only texture pack will work on Bedrock Edition. Just don’t forget to download Bedrock Edition. The download file must be .mcpack for that specific resource pack.

  5. Lorix_77077

    i like it like taht

  9. DF_Bean

    I am having an issue with this texture pack, where the chickens(I can only see the legs, bottom of the body, and front side of the head) and skeleton(I can only see the wrappings that go around the head) mobs are appearing half invisible, is there something on my end that I need/can fix or is this an error with the texture pack itself?

  10. Bruntopostino

    Why the texture is crashing my minecraft? I really don’t know what I need to do

    1. Admin

      Texture packs cannot crash the game. It’s probably the mods you have installed.

  11. Filip

    Best Texture pack ever im using it forever plz update more armour tools and elytras

  12. Charshift

    Please update this texture pack!!!!!!!!! This is awesome!!!!! Ahhhhhhh

  15. anony

    connected textures doesnt work even tho I have enabled it in my optifine options

  16. TheBananaMan

    Is there any way to get only the connecting textures?

    1. Admin

      What do you mean? Connected textures is a feature of optifine.

  17. 50GG

    i name the armour and the tools and it does not work im on java i know i installed it at the right version how do i fix it please answer!

    1. Lynx

      You need to have optifine installed to rename armour and tools.

  18. Rtghystfr

    How do I make the masks?

  19. Samuel

    Great. The best texture pack for common gaming i think. But there is some problem after update to 1.18.2. Most of the objects has some weird white “hitbox” but for blocks. Its only showing on grass, sand, tall grass, dry bush and this kind of objects.

  20. mason

    im having a problem where sometimes blocks (usually trap doors and ladders) anyone know how to fix this

  21. TechnologiZ

    Armor doesnt work
    I tried everything but the custom Armor dosnt work. My friends are playing also with lunarclient, one of my friends sees everything the other sees no connected blocks and i see no custom textures with namings

  22. Deniel

    it’s good but the oak planks, redstone lamps etc.. only connect with black, purple and orange concrete

  23. monkemast

    how do i change the texture of the xp bar?

  24. a

    skeleton texture is bugged. i can only see their heads. is there any way to fix this because this texture pack is great but i cant play with it on my survival worlds?

    1. Ghost

      I’m having the same problem! my friend’s texture is fine but the skeletons are bugged because all I see is the head and the bow it holds onto when I use it. Im glad I’m not alone but also sad someone else has this bug!

  25. Mats van Bork

    can this be in bedrock edition?

  26. Ylfa

    can this work with fabric with sodium installed?

  27. Ghost

    i had a question how do i fix a skeleton texture bug? i used optifine and this texture pack back in 1.17 and everything worked fine but since 1.18 the skeleton texture won’t work. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but it didn’t fix the problem. the optifine is updated too, the weird thing is for me I gave the same file to a friend and it works just fine, hope you could help because its hard to fight a skeleton that’s almost invisible ( I mean this in the fact of you can see the bow and maybe the head.

  28. Skye Mullaley

    Is there a pack for just the items so I could use a different texture pack for the world? And sorry if this is an uninformed question I’m kinda new to playing Minecraft with textures

    1. phoonfrag

      If you really want to, you can go in to the resource pack file and take out the item files, then replace them in the texture pack youd prefer

  29. Woven

    I wanna download this pack, it looks amazing, but I’m just confused about the connecting textures. Will textures always connect to another block when you place them, or is there a way to place them without them connecting without using slabs?

    1. Admin

      They will be if you have optifine installed. This is a feature of optifine.

  30. AggeKing110

    i cant use the “combined blocks” or the “name to get the tools” in bedrock edition

    1. Xiaro

      It’s probably to late to answer but It’s for java

  31. Marco

    Hi, for some reason can’t my PC handle the connected textures. When I turn them on, most of the Blocks won’t get load and so do I have lots of Chunk errors. Without connected textures it works (mostly) fine. I have a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1650 graphic card (which isn’t that bad and I gave Minecraft 5GB of RAM. I also installed “immersive portals” and my render distance is 15 chunks.

  32. Astralux

    Could you add something like amethyst armour as a custom armour set I think that would look amazing

  33. Smithy

    Can you make this work for Item Holders

  34. Amalphia

    Hi! The textures are not blending for me on 1.17.1, and I have OptiFine loaded for the same version. Help?

  35. Rando Younger Sibling

    Is it possible to change what you name it to change the texture? I play on a realms with my siblings and I want to name my elytra something somewhat normal to avoid being judged by them.

    1. LaLaPerish

      Will bedrock get the biome color leaves like java?

  36. zoe

    it won’t work for 1.17 for me. help!

  37. DUCC

    i used this before but downloaded again for 1.17 and the leaves for trees when theyre different colors (yellow, orange, red, etc) theres a wave of color changement in the trees like something is wrong

    I love this texture!! But the only problem is when I try to download the bedrock edition, it downloads a .Zip file. But other then that this is a really good texture!

    1. Anicolye

      How do you use the bedrock version of the download? did you get it to work for bedrock?

  40. Jack Starthum

    Is there a way to edit the textures? I tried changing netherite armor textures to match the weapons but whenever I put it in the resource pack folder it doesn’t show up on Minecraft.

  41. help

    why dont i have the connected blocks? i downloaded the 1.17 one but it didnt work. can someone help me?

    1. Admin

      We have said several times that you need an optifine for this feature. There is a lot of information on this page, but be sure to read the How to Install and Important sections. Sometimes the comments section can also help, as we always try to answer people’s questions.

  42. Why

    I feel pretty stupid for asking this but no idea how to get to 1.12.2 I know I can put in 1.12 but I want to use 1.12.2 just in case I miss anything. I want to have everything matching in my different add-ons list.

    1. Admin

      You can always donwload the 1.17.x version of the pack. It will work just fine on minecraft 1.12.2 and will contain all up-to-date textures. It will say “made for a newer version”, but you can simply ignore this message and install it like any other pack.

  43. Tivon

    is there a way to get the connected path textures on bedrock?

  44. Miukuku

    THIS IS THE BEST TEXTURE

  45. apisit thongtan

    that pig bugs

  46. The_Softie

    How do I get the moobloom variants?? I’m desperate I voted for them when minecraft asked but dream made the glowsquids win. I was really looking forward to that but now I can’t figure it out.

    1. StefanJ2

      They show up in flower forest biomes!

  47. pope

    you guys used sildurs shaders in the photos im having a weird issue with the trees leaves wiggling and there being a brownish leaf block stationary in the same place. so its causing this waving of brown and green in the trees and i really dislike that. is there some way to make them compatible because the trees in the showcase look normal. thank you

  48. DABABY

    How do you get the connected textures to work, do you need a specific shader (if so what one) how do you activate it???

    1. Admin

      Please read the “Important Information” section on this page. There is an answer.

  49. Byzant77

    Does anyone know if this works with mods, I have optifine with a couple of mods and the connection part of the pack does not work?

  50. Gray

    How do you use the pack on bedrock because when I load it in it says it failed to load

    1. EEEEEEEEEEE

      you cant use it on bedrock

      1. Whiff

        I downloaded it on my iPad, u can use it on bedrock u have to have optifine to use some of the features

  51. FoxGuyz

    that’s look interesting!!!

  52. Manapo

    Who thought making acacia brown and red sandstone beige was a good idea, why limit orange blocks

  53. sarah

    can anyone tell me the shader pack that’s in the photos?

  54. spoon

    wait why is this under the bedrock section lol i don’t think it works with bedrock.

    1. Admin

      Because there is a bedrock edition of this pack.
      There is a separate link to the bedrock edition in the downloads section.

  55. Izabu_

    The torches disappear after 2 seconds of placement,,,

  56. Chloe

    pls say i dont need optofine for this cause optifine aint workin for me

    1. Admin

      You need optifine for connected textures feature to work.

  57. Bee

    my trees worked perfectly fine, but then all of the sudden they started clipping between the colors green and yellow. i don’t know what I did. but i’m sad my trees don’t work anymore. my optifine, or shaders also don’t seem to be the problem, its just the pack itself. maybe i messed up something in the settings? idk, but please help :((

    1. Bee

      also the laves on the grass blocks dosent exist anymore?

    2. DefEnge

      for me worked out going to video setting details and putting fancy on trees (i think you can see this option menu only by using the optifine ) and that stopped the clipping probklem

  58. RoyalTacos

    Nether Blocks and smooth stone don’t have a retexture.

  59. Flames

    please just fix the dirt the rest is perfect but the dirt is so off putting

  60. PlayerOne

    Hey, youe texture is amazing, but the custom armor are not working… could you help me?

  61. Mr. P

    I named my enchanted Diamond Chestplate: Crimson Chestplate…cause I use it for the nether. It turned red.
    I switched back to the normal resource pack. And in actual vanilla minecraft its blue. Why is the enchanted and named one RED????

    1. Stefan

      Bettervanillabuilding has about 25 custom armor sets. Of which crimson armor is 1. You can see all other armors on our server, they all work by renaming tools/armor to the correspinding names

  62. Jimin

    The bushy leaves are buggy and don’t show up most of the time for me (yes I downloaded the add-on and have it selected above the regular pack), the leaves also don’t always chance color when they should. My biggest issue with the pack is the skeletons don’t have different styles like shown above, has that not been added yet or is it just buggy? I love this pack but there seems to be quite a few problems..

    1. stefan

      Sounds like you might not have optifine installed, check if you have the latest version for 1.16.2 optifine. If that doesnt help please reach out on discord

  63. leosin

    i got rickrolled by this resource pack lol

  64. Mint Ivy

    the leaves do not show up even with optifine. I went to all of the forests and none of them have the leaves in the picture.

    1. Shotgunfacelift

      Same for me!

      1. stefan

        Check if you guys have the most recent version of optifine. If that doesnt help please reach out in discord

  65. HeroBloodBr

    For some reason the leaves are not with custom colors

  66. MinecraftBlooow

    I cant dowloand this why?

  67. Swindy1234

    The leaf textures don’t work for me, but everything else looks great

  68. shy

    I love this pack so much, it’s perfect and totally my style, but it makes me so sad to say it makes my game freeze up so bad and drops my frames to 20ish as well. I use optifine and have very low settings when using the pack, I have a good custom built pc and get 400 fps with no resource pack and others, why is this specific pack a no go? :(

    1. Stefan

      It’s because of all the connected textures the pack is very laggy (I am working on improving this). Until then you can turn off connected textures in settings and the pack will run fine!

  69. WilliamGameing

    What Is Theis Are Real LIVE

  70. Mikaela Wong

    The pack is beautiful but the the leaf blocks don’t show up for me, they are just solid colors.

  71. snow crystal
