Fresh Animations Resource Pack 1.19 / 1.18

Is Minecraft already starting to feel plain for you? That’s surprising since the games have a lot in store for players. Nevertheless, what you feel is understandable. Simple animations will make you feel bored eventually. And this is something that Minecraft obviously has. Well, what do you know? That’s not the case anymore. The Fresh Animations resource pack is here to rekindle your love for Minecraft once again! Fresh Animations is phenomenal. It makes Minecraft like a whole new game. But why? Keep reading and allow us to share what we know about it. The Fresh Animations texture pack is an update for Minecraft from FreshLX. The purpose of making this falls nothing short of being simple – improving the animations for the mobs. Before this resource pack, the movements of mobs look very jerky and are limited to predictable forward, sideward, and backward movements. With the Fresh Animations pack downloaded and installed, Minecraft becomes a whole new game. Mobs have smarter behaviors since they can now turn around, run or walk without looking jerky, jump, and execute other complex movements. Fresh Animations is still in the beta phase so expect that there’s a lot more coming. At present, it has three available versions. Version 1.0 provides new animations to villager, iron golem, witch, vindicator, evoker, pillager, and ravager mobs. The creeper, zombie, husk, zombie villager, skeleton, wither skeleton, and illusion enjoy new animations with Version 1.1. Download version 1.2 to get new animations for pig, wandering trader, phantom, and blaze.

Minecraft dungeons and Minecraft trailers were the inspiration for the current and future animations, as per the words of the creator. That’s why you might want to watch these again if you want to get an idea of the exciting features cooking up. So, which is better? Vanilla Minecraft or Fresh Animations? Vanilla Minecraft doesn’t stand a chance against Fresh Animations if we talk about animation. As said earlier, Fresh Animations makes the mobs move smarter. This is something that the predictable and jerky animations of Vanilla Minecraft can’t contest. But in terms of texture and graphics, nothing’s really the same. With that being said, don’t expect this resource pack to make Minecraft compare to highly defined computer games. Fresh Animations doesn’t alter the core gameplay. That being said, don’t expect new mechanics from it. No need to worry because it only makes Minecraft feel like a whole new game without altering the features that make it unique from other games. The Fresh Animations Resource pack isn’t demanding on the computer system. With that said, you don’t have to upgrade your gaming PC to enjoy it. However, you will need to install the Optifine game utility for Minecraft. Fresh Animations Resource Pack works with Optifine’s Custom Entities and Random Entity. To save yourself from the hassle of downloading twice, opt to download Optifine-HDU-G8 because older versions might not work with Fresh Animations version 1.2.

Fresh Animations should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 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

    What do the add-ons do?

    1. Admin

      Read the “Important about add-ons” section.

  2. Ebs Fae

    Hey I can’t find the addon bit anymore and I need it all my creepers look funny, where do I find it? Am I being dense ? I had to resinstall the game and can only find the base resource pack but I love the addon. Help!

    1. Anon

      for me it’s just below the Java Edition links (probably useless since you said “anymore” but hey it’s worth mentioning)

  3. spice

    for some reason, it wont let me download 1.19, it only downloads 1.8..?

    1. Admin

      If you’re talking about v1.8 in the filename, that’s the resource pack update version, not the Minecraft compatibility version.

  4. man

    why do only some animals get the animation while others dont even when fresh animations is the only pack im using

  5. Jacob

    The mob is extremely cool but I play bedrock Addition and now I’m really sad that it doesn’t work for it:(

  6. Bro

    IMPORTANT**** If the eyeballs of animals are acting weird on 1.19 make sure in the resource pack folder you have them listed top to bottom in this order
    1) fresh animations
    2) Default ( Minecraft resource pack ) THEN
    3) The fresh animations add-on.

  7. unknow

  8. Rythyr

  12. James Ernest

    wow what a cool pack

  13. Luke

    Running Optifine1.18.1, latest version, with Custom entities, random entities, and emissive textures all turned on, but all the mobs have no eyes, any suggestions?

    1. livia

      mine doesnt have eyes aswell

      1. Zach

        Gotta make sure the addons is below the main files in the load order.

        1. Rythyr

          This makes no difference.

  14. SomeMinecrafter

    I tried for 1.19, and it failed, they also dont have eyes.

  15. kabaczek

    haha testing

  16. Cassie

    I have yet to see what mobs look like but I am dying for how frecking cute the cats and dogs are! So far, love it! Would be awesome if like cows and dogs could have other colors and stuff.

  17. Ken

    Same its not working tho

  18. minion309

    some of the animations like the skeleton are not working, how do I fix this?

  19. Pilkie

    Hello, first off great mod. To my understanding, I followed the install instructions correct, and most mobs work. The only issues I’m seeing is horse armor being a bit odd, and also the Drowned zombies have 2 bodies nestled inside each other.

    1. YahBoiJerry

      There is a way to fix this. Just go into the resource pack files and create a copy of the horse.jem file. Rename that copy to horse_armor.jem and put the file in with the rest. This will fix the horse armor problem.

  20. happylexi01

    i downloaded the main pack and both add ons but now spiders have 16 legs, i can’t figure out what they do other than make some chickens different and put better legs on spiders. also the one that improves spider legs also gives them 16 legs, i know its nit picky but i would love to see it updated so it only has 8 legs. however everything looks amazing

  21. Tom.The.OLD_m8

    1.18.2, the horse armour doesn’t work right with the horse animations. Side note, animations are sick.

  22. kacper ostrowski

    it doesent work for me on 1.19 can someone tell me why?

    1. Admin

      Have you read the “How to install”, “Important” and “Required settings” sections?

      1. Glitchf0x

        I have done that but it doesnt work

  23. Jellyfish

    Do you need the Addon pack or just the resorce pack

  24. Malinkaaa

    it didn’t work :((

    1. petrarussell

      what rate u do?

  25. Johnathan Pizzazz

    The horse armor is extremely glitchy. Other than that, great resource pack!

  26. Ryan Paul

    Hey, can u make it compatible with fabric too? Thanks!

  27. Warden

    1. Salil

      in video settings change the models to custom models

  28. echo

    the fox is broken the body is in the ground and the head is looking straight up im using 1.18 with addons

  29. Derp

    I am using this on 1.18 but the mobs are invisible. I have optifine, no shaders, no other resource or texture packs, and there doesnt seem for there to be a reason for them to be invisible. Can someone help me out?

    1. n00b

      same problem! Anyone know how to sort it out?

      1. Cholo1219

        do not use the addons use the resource pack link

  30. osjos

    when i download the 1.8 one it download the 1.6 and when i download the 1.6 it downloads 1.3, please fix this

    1. Admin

      What are you talking about? You are downloading 1.18, not 1.8. v1.6 is the resource pack version, not the Minecraft version.

  31. David Felipe Arévalo Herrán 

      But who said it’s compatible?

  33. MCbuild

    i so scared of wandering trader eyes, eyes too like herobrine

  34. Adyen

    LEGENDARY PACK, legendary work.

    Question tho:
    Your animation pack sometimes overwrite SOME custom mob textures and sometimes it doesn’t.
    Can you just add animation without changing the custom textures?
    Maybe it’s also the other pack maker’s issue.

    Ex: Like, Quadral Zombies benefit just fine from your animation while keeping their custom skin.
    But let’s say, Copper Golem on Iron Golem (Golems Family) pack and some other mobs can’t be animated while keeping the custom texture.
    We gotta either use standard texture with fresh animations or the new texture and lose the animation.

    Sorry to trouble you with this, but that Copper Golem piggyback is just too delish to let it slip your attention lol.

    1. Adyen

      Another idea that I’m sure you’ve already heard is compatibility with the Villagers Enhanced pack which provides trade tools for villagers.
      That one also doesn’t work with Fresh animations. Or at least not on my 1.16.5 and 1.17.1 clients.

  35. blademiss

    There is a bug with skeletons if the animation resource pack is turned off and on frequently that makes the skeleton’s torso a solid magenta prism (missing texture).

  36. pax

    Man why skeletons body is missing textured?

  37. EndyStar9d9

    The texture for the desert profession for the zombie villager has some extra pixels still in it that causes the Desert Zombie Villagers to have a dark green eye,

  38. EndyStar9d9

    Desert zombie villagers without hats have one black eye, which should be red.

  39. NightAngel123

    haha this is funny hahaha

  40. Dont Care

    bruh its just like the regular texture pack

  45. Pablo Henrique Pereira Da Silva

    Really well done! The little expressions of each mod gives so much more life to the mobs of the various dimensions.

  64. faaad

    1. Admin

      We don’t know what you mean, but this pack requires an optifine and won’t work without it.

    2. Huhac

      Most of RP needs OptiFine…
      And I also use OptiFine when I don’t have RP …
      I recommend it :)

  65. Huhac
