Dragon Dance Resource Pack 1.17 / 1.16

Transform your Minecraft world into a fantastical realm with the Dragon Dance resource pack! Its vibrant textures and whimsical designs leave everything from dirt to diamonds feeling like a trip to Hyrule. Dragon Dance updates lots more than the Ender Dragon; it gives a new sheen to just about every texture you can think of. You won’t have to worry about this resource pack ruining your immersion either- the bright coloration blends together for a completely natural feel. No annoying pastels or unnatural colors will plague your experience with this resource pack.

A 64x resolution gives Dragon Dance resource pack enough detail to suck you into your Minecraft world without turning it into a monster file. Every texture was carefully hand drawn down to the smallest details without the use of vectors or pre-existing textures. It even looks better than some higher resolution resource packs, a fact made clear as soon as you boot up your world. Because of the vibrancy of the colors, even underground, it is possible to go mining without torches or other sources of light, This keeps you from using up your valuable resources and, while some may consider it cheating, it offers more ways to play the game and makes it enjoyable for a wider audience. Dragon Dance supports many popular mods.

Dragon Dance should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 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 - 1.8.9 - 1.8.8 - 1.8.1 - 1.8.6 - 1.8 - 1.7.10 - 1.7.9 - 1.7.4 - 1.7 - 1.6.4 - 1.6.2

    I really love the joyful artwork of this resource pack. Sadly, it is far from complete, as you can read in the other comments.

    Personally, I am using this resource pack, but combined it with two other resource packs: ZigZagMobs for all the items and Misa for the glass (the stained glass of Dragon Dance is imho unusable, as you can’t look through it.).

    Sadly, the very restrictive license of this resource pack wouldn’t allow to share that combined pack, or even use it in videos or anything.

    the exp bar seems to be broken, it does not progress past about 1/8th

  4. Sino

    this pack is cool but like it seems unfinished, so many things are really different and other things are just the same

  5. Zandiara

    Really laggy in 1.16, torches lack fire and the game was not laggy before the texture pack

    1. Admin

      This is a resource pack with a 64x resolution (four times more than Minecraft vanilla textures).
      Are you sure you have decent hardware to handle this resolution?

  6. VincenFurze

    This is super good looking but I hate how it doesn’t retexture things like food of creatures! Other wise it’s super good but please no texture for mobs!

  7. Ahruke

    Banners do not show up right at all which is annoying

  8. Mathikde

    There’s a lot of textures missing for most of the new blocks from the Nether Update.

  9. Ginjaninja

    fire doesn’t have animation in 1.16

  10. Heather Walls

    Fire blocks are glitched in 1.15.2. Too bad, because this pack has a lot of potential! I also prefer packs that have mobs changed, and this one doesn’t change any of them from vanilla.

  11. Cthulu

    Hey there, just installed the mod and I absolutely love it. There’s just some king of display bug with the fire, if I lit some blocks it’s fine but sometimes I just get a big violet and black rectangle…. Is there anything I can do to fix this ? (I’m playing in 1.15.2). Thanks :)

  12. Phillip Lyndale Trout

    have they fixed the banners yet? I keep getting a lot of black on any custom banners, only plain banners made from dyed wool are even showing up as the correct color. I think its something wrong with the negatives of the layers of custom banners, it always shows up as black. it wasn’t having this issue in vanilla.

  13. please

    please make this pack available for 1.15 – I love it and I miss it:(

  14. Luis Duque

    in 1.14.4 some items are still not up to date :(

  15. Lizard

    fire doesnt have animation in the 1.14.4

  16. Nyx-WildSiren

    Hello! I have been waiting for the 1.14 version of the resource pack for awhile. I love it, however I am slightly disappointed in some things that are still vanilla (armor, mobs, and a few nuance things.) If those items could be updated, I think this would immediately become my number 1 resource pack!

    Pack is 404’d for me too… Looks amazing I really wanted to try it out
