Colourful Containers GUI Resource Pack 1.20 / 1.19

We all know our fair share of resource packs that modify the game’s graphics and textures – there are countless of them online right now for you to try. But what about modifying something that will be a big part of your screen most of the time, even though it is often overlooked? That’s what Colourful Containers GUI resource pack is here to do – it will change your Minecraft’s user-interface and make the game look more appealing at the right time. Minecraft’s vanilla GUI looks dull and isn’t a sight to see. It most definitely needs freshening up. More importantly, it looks like it crashes onto the game, it doesn’t blend in. Those mistakes and other poor design choices are fixed when you decide to install Colourful Containers GUI. This resource pack will take care of all containers’ GUI, such as chests, enchanting tables, furnaces, you name it.

This is the go-to resource pack for both new and veteran players who want to add a little change to Minecraft, but not a complete and total graphic overhaul. Colourful Containers GUI will modify a little bit of the game, and create a big change for the better. This resource pack has one goal in mind, to create the perfect in-game interface. That way, the game will look great, even when you are browsing through different containers. Even though it might not be much, it makes Minecraft an even more colorful and pleasant experience. Colourful Containers GUI uses the standard 16×16 resolution. Keep in mind this resource pack will only modify a little part of the game, so you will probably have no issues whatsoever if you decide to install it – as long as you can run vanilla Minecraft already. You won’t have to worry about framerate issues because of heavy textures, all you have to do is take a look at your newly-found interfaces – that will look amazing!

Colourful Containers GUI should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 1.20.4 - 1.20.3 - 1.20.2 - 1.20.1 - 1.20 - 1.19.4 - 1.19.3 - 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 - Bedrock Edition - PE

    1.20.2 pack works fine on 1.20.4 but the trading UI breaks a little bit (visually its stretched but all the slots are in the same place)

  2. Ingauge

    In 1.20.2 or higher, the resident gui does not appear even if you use Optifine.

  3. Yeamin

    I have a problem it changes my crosshair to a dot. but I like the default I am using version 1.20.4 and pack version 16x 1.20

  4. Tobey

    when is the 1.20 version gonna release?

  5. Lopaz_

    So it looked good and i wanted to download it, but unfortunately the 1.19 dark version gives me a 403 forbidden error code and the other older ones have some textures miscentered and weird black text on blue and red backgrounds in the creative inventory, which makes be unable to use it.
    Any fixes for this?

    1. Admin

      The link should work fine now, please take a look.

  6. rain

    hi, i used bedrock on mobile and when i download and use the pack the textures are missing? every gui shows the missing black and purple checkered texture. how do i fix this? is optifine an option on mobile?

    1. Kyle

      How do you download it on mobile I don’t know how

  7. Jiftyto

    Why is dark mode only working on 1.19?

  8. _TlPocTo_Tik_

    Has some problems with some letters , when Force Unicode Font is on

  9. madi

    hello, I have tried various methods to get this to work and I have used this before and enjoyed it. I am on a new computer and when I select the resource pack the ui for the creative inventory is severely misaligned. it makes using creative inventory difficult and ugly is this a common problem? it happens with both dark mode and the default. I have screenshots if there’s somewhere I could share them.

    1. madi

      I will add that all other tables (crafting etc) are working fine

  10. Anonymous1738

    It’s a gosh damn texture pack, why tf does it need optifine, like it’s literally just edited texture files, not behavioural files. Most of these optifine texture packs just be reaching for no reason. I downloaded it without optifine and it worked (had outdate version 1.18.2 in 1.19.3, only error was creative inventory button bc it was outdated so clearly the optifine part is just a label.

    1. Admin

      Each resource pack is just an edited texture file, but you need optifine for some features to work. For example, some items in this pack are animated and it require optifine. To make the small chest and large chest have different GUI textures – you will most likely need optifine. To be able to make the ender chest look different from the small and large chests you need optifine. Optifine can do a lot.

  11. Niko

    It didn’t work, I put it in Android/…/mojan etc. until I putted it in the Resource_Packs folder, but it don’t work, what I did wrong?

    1. Unknow_666

      Hi for more easier installment add the name to
      .mcaddon to the end of the file and click on it then it would give some options click on minecraft and it would open minecraft and import it
      Thank you*

    2. rasmus kivistö

  12. aaaaa

    why is the chat all messed up

  13. Hatty

    I wish it didnt include the inventory title and had a bump to signify it, but rather just removed it entirely.

  14. dabtod

    I love everything except the black loading screen and the new options background. I removed the options background but how can I replace the black loading screen with the og red screen again.

    1. madi

      download the default one, only the dark mode one has a black screen

  15. AnThOo

    does this pack work with rubidium in forge or sodium in fabric ??

    1. AnThOo

      instead of optifine ’cause optifine doesnt work with them :/

  16. Ready

    This pack just deleted all spaces in my game

  17. Fang

    Dark mode on bedrock? Plz

  18. RandomMinecraftPlayer

  19. N

    does this require optifine if being used on bedrock??? if so, how can i install optifine on bedrock?

  20. GameEymen

    I have Optifine but villagers’, ender chest’s, colourful shulkers’ GUI didn’t work. What should I do?

    1. Carol

      it didn’t work for me, I use Mcpe in version 1.19, I installed it the way they taught, I put the package in my world and it didn’t work, I really wanted it but it didn’t work :(

  21. jyon

    Can you please fix the url for the 1.16.5 version?
    It jumps to the 1.15 version url.

    1. Admin

      It works fine on 1.16.x

  22. mypcgoboom

    i got the texture pack without optifine and it stilll works, what part of the texture pack needs optifine? since it works fine with out optifine to me

  23. Danto

    i think im comfuse… or i m so confuse that i think i understand.
    Im new on this ok.
    im trying to open it on resourse pack but it doesnt open
    i have this pack on my phone (cmpe) and its gorgeous and i NEED IT on java too

    So the question is.. Is this for java?? and if it is how do i use it on 1.18 😕

    1. Vintage

      Just incase you didn’t know, here are the steps:

      1. In files, type %appdata%
      2. Press .minecraft
      3. Press resourcepacks
      4. Drag the resource pack you downloaded into resourcepacks
      5. If it needs optifine, press optifine in the minecraft launcher after installing optifine
      6. Once minecraft is loaded, go to ‘options/resource packs’ and then select the resource pack.
      7. If it is red and says it is not able to be used, either it will work, work but be bugged, or not work at all.

      Hope this helped! :3

  24. Erico86

    Is this ever going to come for 1.17?

    1. mykehdoom

      I hope so. :( this is one of my favorite resource packs.

    2. Mystic_inn4

      You can open the file after extracting it, open the pack.mcmeta file and then just edit the number to make it suitable for the version you want, so 7 for 1.17 and 8 1.18 and 1 for 1.8.9

  25. nou

    i tough it was pe but good container keep on the good side <3

    1. clover

      It’s available for bedrock, and Pocket edition is also bedrock edition :)

  26. SuperTechDiamond

    This is an amazing texture pack!
    I love this texture pack however the minecart chest opens what you previously looked into if its a chest, ender chest or barrel. Going into anything else shows a barrel

  27. Tim

    I have adoubt, which folder makes the texts of the containers white? I was combining two resource packs that i like butthe text appears with the default color

  28. OlivierXDLOL


  29. sami

    the truth is one of my favorite textures from now on because of the detail that they mojang / microsoft have not wanted to add and this would attract the attention of more public.

  30. Thingsneverwork

    ive been loosing my mind trying to get this texture pack to work, anyone got advice?

    1. I 100% agree

      Yeah this is this not even working… I got my hopes up to but even when I did everything they said to do it just would not work.

      1. Admin

        We hope you have optifine installed?

      2. Mystic_inn4

        Are you using OptiFine?

      3. Loaded_Gun_

        i know i’m really late but it didn’t work for me but i got it working after extracting the .zip file and choosing assets, minecraft, textures and there is a file called font and i changed it to fonts

    2. BloodyDubstep

      extract the archive.

  31. Diestroe

    Yeah, I’ll be using this for now on. Only things missing are the Smithing Table, Barrel, Chest Minecart. and Beacons. Maybe there could be UI changes for villagers and horses. All that aside, I love this so keep up the great work!

  32. HerobrineZombie

    could you make a dark mode version of this?

    its a great texture pack and I think it would be better if there was a light and dark version

  33. Igor Ferreira

    Best resource pack.
    Just missing barrels tho :/

  34. Guy

    I’ve tried repackaging this.
    Cannot get it to show up as an option. This is the only resource pack that I’ve encountered with this behaviour, is it possible to have the developer correct it?

    1. Admin

      Your .zip should contain nothing but pack.png, pack.mcmeta, and the assets folder.
      We always provide a link to the official website / source so that any of our visitors can contact the author directly.

  35. Nexo

    could you do a more Blocky version?

  36. cxatch

    There’s a missing texture for the smithing table.

  37. Harvey Pangilinan

    my minecraft can’t see this resource pack, any way to fix it?

    1. Khaltzane

      Yeah I have the same issue. Even tried repacking it myself and it didnt work

      1. Admin

        If you don’t see the resource pack, it’s likely the author packaged it incorrectly.
        You can easily fix this by unpacking and repacking without the main folder. Your .zip archive should contain mcmeta, txt (in some packs), pack.png (icon) and no other folders besides “assets”.
