BetterVanillaBuilding Resource Pack 1.16 / 1.15

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: 1.17 - 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

Important information:
  • 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. More information on this feature can be found on the official BetterVanillaBuilding Discord server.

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

  10. 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

  11. RoyalTacos

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

  12. Flames

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

  13. PlayerOne

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

  14. 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

    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

  16. leosin

    i got rickrolled by this resource pack lol

  17. 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

  18. HeroBloodBr

    For some reason the leaves are not with custom colors

  19. MinecraftBlooow

    I cant dowloand this why?

  20. Swindy1234

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

  21. 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!

  22. WilliamGameing

    What Is Theis Are Real LIVE

  23. Mikaela Wong

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

  24. snow crystal

    i like the pack, but for some reason the trees are all glitched up. maybe it’s my fault tho?

  25. Toiveikasy

    this modback doesnt work for me. do I have to have spisific settings?
