Faraway Realism Resource Pack 1.16 / 1.15

Minecraft is a popular game for many players of all ages. One of the things that makes games successful is the accompanying resource packs, regardless of when they were developed. About four months ago, the Faraway Realism resource pack was released for Minecraft and, to date, has been downloaded over 60,000 times by players. This is a significant accomplishment and when a resource pack is able to achieve such an accomplishment, we pay attention. After downloading the Faraway Realism resource pack, we were thrilled with what we saw because the resource pack is both visually gorgeous and has much to offer players. The Faraway Realism texture pack is the second attempt by its creator, Carriebestie. Overall, the Faraway Realism resource pack is consistently impressive in consideration of quality. If you are looking for is a realistic resource pack, then you should definitely consider the Faraway Realism.

The main objective of the Faraway Realism pack is to maximally enhance the realism found in Minecraft by adding the maximal amount of raw detail into the texture found within the game. Traditionally, this approach towards realism in games leads to textures that look noisy or busy. However, in the case of the Faraway Realism resource pack and Minecraft, this does not occur and the outcome is visually pleasing. The textures created in Minecraft through the Faraway Realism resource pack are full of detail and noise appears to be non-existent. As a result, you will see breathtaking sights while playing Minecraft if you download the Faraway Realism resource pack. There is a fairly high texture resolution of 512×512 associated with the Faraway Realism resource pack. This only means that your system will need to be able to handle such high resolutions. Otherwise, you will experience problems in relation to the frame-rate.

Faraway Realism should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 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

    Your pack.mcmeta should say “pack_format 7,” not “pack_format 4”

    The names of the folders and the blocks need to be updated. Since at least 1.14 (though it might have been 1.13), the folders “blocks” and “items” in the texture folder are now “block” and “item.” Many of the texture names have been changed as well. I didn’t go through all 429 of the textures in your folder, but I know you’ve got the stones misnamed at least. Given that nothing else looked changed from default, you might want to check the Wiki for the new names.

    I’ve tried installing this pack several times (following all directions) and barely anything changes. The title screen changes and the buttons (ex singleplayer, multiplayer, connect, disconnect, etc.) change but nothing else looks as advertised

    Hi there!
    I downloaded this pack, and followed the instructions, but it didn’t make any changes at all except for the Sun and clouds… :/

    Downloaded Optifine and installed as well, (and all of the Java installs that go along with it), selected the Optifine version in the launcher and clicked Play, but it still had the exact same effect. No realistic textures except for the sun and clouds.

    Do I need to have certain shaders installed?
    How can I make my Minecraft world look like the preview pictures?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you :)

      Make sure Faraway Realism is at the top of the list of active resource packs.

      1. Marisa

        I am having the same issue. The pack is at the top of the active list but the only thing changing is the clouds and the sun:(

    2. Steve

      I had this same issue and I had to add the SEUS Shader pack to get a similar look to the screenshots above. Now the water and lighting looks the same, but the wood textures in the third screenshot look nothing like the picture. Hoping the dev can shed some light on this….

  7. Rhyme

    Is the 2×2 personal crafting section misaligned for anyone else? if so how do I fix this, because the texture pack is really amazing but this 1 misalignment is triggering

    1. SparkyIO

      I have the same problem, but I haven’t figured it out. I’m not using optifine, so that might be a problem but if I figure it out I’ll let you know.

  11. ugh

    I cant get my minecraft client to even pick up the pack. it says its unable to find the manifest. not sure how to fix this. Tried 2 times, from 2 different websites and CAN NOT get a working one -_-

    1. Admin

      We checked it out ourselves. Works great on our side (at the time of writing this comment). Please note: This is a resource pack for the Java version of Minecraft and will most likely not work in the bedrock version.

    2. minecrafty dude

      I had exact same problem, click on file, there should be a nearly identical looking file inside of it, and another thing. cut and paste the first one, and just use that.

  12. bruh
