Dramatic Skys Resource Pack 1.17 / 1.16

The Dramatic Skys is unique when it comes to any other resource pack you can find for many different reasons. The primary distinguishing feature of this pack is that it will not try to change the game’s whole appearance, for instance, by replacing default textures of blocks, items, mobs and the rest. Rather than trying to completely change the standard look of the minecraft, it moves its focus in a different direction – it is the skies! The pack introduces something fresh and it does a pretty decent job at it too. The Dramatic Skys resource pack will add a hyper-realistic set of sky textures that will elevate the whole look and experience of playing the game like never before. The in-game sky will appear richer, more realistic, and simply one step ahead than what it used to be like before applying this pack. Probably the most amazing part about it is the originality of concept.

In contrast to most other resource packs available for download that tend to recycle the same old approach repeatedly, this one takes matters a step further. Besides the textures, what will not go unnoticed are some of the gorgeous weather animations. They are just a sight to behold. The Dramatic Skys texture pack not only has great looks but it is exceptional on a technical level too. Firstly, it is supremely well-optimized. Normally, it would be expected that running a similar pack would demand a PC on the higher-end but that is absolutely not the case. This pack will run smoothly, without any flaws even on low-end PCs. Any lags or bugs will rarely be encountered, if at all. It is no coincidence that this pack has been downloaded so many times ever since its release. The complete player-base can relish it with no issues whatsoever.

Dramatic Skys 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

    Since I started using this pack its a must have for me. Absolutely beautiful, no performance loss and I don’t have a beast computer. I can’t run shader packs because of lag. But this didn’t change my performance at all and now all my builts look even better with these incredible stars behind them.

  2. Sky

    I think the moon is a bit too realistic for me heh

  3. DF

    Do I need optifine for this?

  4. leo

    It’s so great! I’m proud of this sky. Thank you for making this

  5. HTMLH4cker

    First of all: This is an extremly good texture pack!
    To anyone who got problems with the 1.17.1 Version:
    – Install the latest Optifine Version -> it doesnt matter if you download the pre32 or pre33, just make sure you use the 1.17.1 Optifine Version
    – Go to your Minecraft settings and set the clouds off

    If you followed this two steps you should have all problems fixed. If you’re having problems installing Optifine, the Youtube Channel “The Breakdown” made a really good tutorial for installing the 1.17.1 Optifine Version!

    It’s awesome! Sky looks so much better with this txt :D Ty for this

  7. leo

    i had installed 1.17 optifine but clouds is not working. Sun and Moon are still working. Does optifine preview version have the problem?

    1. Panda

      I had this problem too. I updated optifine to the most recent version (the pre32 one) and it fixed it

  8. Daniel ten Brinke

    saddly the clouds didnt work.

    1. Admin (resourcepack.net)

      Optifine.. you need optifine.

  9. LemonadeLyric

    Since updating to 1.17 it’s not working! I downloaded the new pack, installed it, and the sun and moon show up but the resource pack clouds don’t. I’ve got custom sky turned on too, so not sure what else to do it fix it. Any help would be great!

    1. nuetrons

      I am having the same issue. Hopefully it’s noticed and fixed! It looks beautiful!

  10. Midnight_Witch

    I realy like it. the pack doesn`t need optifine!

  11. Amethyst_Phoenix

    I really wanna get the night sky! It looks so beautiful but it doesn’t work for me. I have optifine and everything, but it still doesn’t work. I hope it works sometime bc the pack is so nice :D

  12. CountessMosquito

    Just popped this pack in yesterday, in conjunction with LB PhotoRealism. They are beautiful together.

  13. Liam

    How do I turn on custom skyes?
    like where do I find the setting

    1. DreamStan

      go to video settings> details (you also need optifine to get the details setting)

  14. CJ

    Is this resource pack comptible with other resource packs?

    1. Admin (resourcepack.net)

      Must be compatible with any pack that doesn’t change the sky.

  15. jasper

    i dont see any changes in the clouds only in the moon and sun

    1. Admin (resourcepack.net)

      In the settings, you must enable the “custom sky” feature.
      Make sure you have optifine installed or it won’t work.

  16. Mel Kaiser

    I would love to see this texture pack get some storm clouds, the day and night cycle are amazing…. but when it starts raining, everything is just blank blue or grey mc skies.

    2. thebaum64

      Sadly Minecraft does not allow skys during weather changes which is a shame

  17. Mikkel Bøhm

    i really just want the rest then clouds

  18. Anjelo Oracion

    you need optifine and turn on custom skys boom realistic clouds

  19. Xx_Luna_Wolf_xX

  20. brickson98

    My clouds aren’t realistic…

    1. inomfood

      the instructions weren’t correct, you need optifine for this to work. It changes nothing in vanilla minecraft.
