A vibrant, lively appearance is the trademark of the Flows HD texture pack. Its uniqueness comes from the developer’s inspiration with numerous resource packs, which led him to combine their best elements and create this quite unique resource pack. The game-changing textures that it offers are a result of years of work that all led up to its current state. The journey of the original Flows HD begins all the way back in 2012, around the time when Minecraft version 1.2.5 was released. This was going to be the foundation for all of the upcoming versions of the pack. However, the earliest developer ArtFlo91 has since passed the development efforts to others. Eisregen and Lukolaz provided some updates and later Exevium polished the textures for quite some time, after which they also retired from the pack. Naming out all of the contributors would take a while, so we’ll leave it here. Don’t worry though, the Flows HD resource pack is still being regularly updated for the newest Minecraft versions. When you first load up the game with this pack installed, you’ll immediately notice the stunning visuals and high-quality textures that still manage to retain Minecraft’s unique features. This was the main goal – modernizing the game while at the same time not changing its core elements. The Flows HD is quite popular with players who like to focus on building, mainly since the textures themselves are designed in a way that makes almost all of the builds look great, regardless of whether they’re medieval or modern, creepy or pleasant. Even if you’re not a builder and just want to experience the game in a new, modern, and sleek light, you should definitely try out this pack. A significant change that you’ll probably notice without even looking at the blocks is the sky. It got a complete revamp, taking on a new shade of blue while being crystal clear. At night, the moon gives off a gloomy glow that positively impacts the game’s atmosphere. This goes along perfectly with the changes concerning the game’s vegetation.
Their appearance is now much more natural and less pixelated, with the spiked grass going in all directions. This adjustment is noticeable even underwater since seagrass is also modified. If you’re playing Minecraft on a platform that doesn’t support Java, such as Playstation, Xbox, Android, or iOS, don’t worry. A developer by the name of PLAYGAMEMPE ported the complete resource pack to Minecraft’s Bedrock edition. This means that you can experience the transformation that Flows HD provides since all of the textures are exactly the same on all versions. Even though it’s not 100% necessary, developers recommend installing Optifine alongside this resource pack. Otherwise, some textures might not be able to load as they should. It’ll help connect all of the blocks properly, and this is quite important since the pack relies on this feature to provide an optimal experience. Also, with all of the options set correctly, it can help you get a few extra FPS. Keep in mind that there’s still no official Optifine version for Minecraft Bedrock, so you can’t rely on it giving you extra performance there. As far as the Flows HD performance goes, it requires quite a few more resources compared to the vanilla game. Releases for the earlier Minecraft versions had two possible resolutions to pick from, 64×64 and 128×128. However, since the development team got smaller, they transferred their focus completely to the higher quality version. This means that your PC has to render 8 times more pixels which can get problematic if you have weaker components. This is one reason more to install Optifine if you’re going to be using the pack. If this is not a concern to you, you can also use shaders alongside Flows HD to boost the game’s visuals even more. Although it can be quite demanding, Flows HD texture pack truly transforms the game into something new. The combination of different styles that makes it ideal for building is something that you’ll hardly find in any other resource pack. Its extensive history means that it had plenty of time to become polished and free of bugs. With the updates still ongoing, there’s no doubt that we still have a lot to see from the Flows HD resource pack.
