Mad Pixels Resource Pack 1.17 / 1.16

Minecraft is not exactly a realist looking game. The graphics actually look rather cartoony and flat by design. That’s why using add-ons such as Mad Pixels resource pack might seem like a not bad idea. Because the objective of resource packs is to give Minecraft a completely different look. Even though the resource pack does feature textures that might seem rather simple at first glance -and other texture files that might look like they were pulled straight from the source files the redesign done in this resource pack gives a breath of fresh air to graphic design and saves original minecraft gameplay feeling. It is also a great resource pack for low-end computers, as the resource pack is made for low resolution.

Even though the Mad Pixels Cartoony texture pack is not that new, it is compatible with the most recent version of the game, as well as Minecraft versions 1.14.x. It has been a few years since the resource pack was first released. It also was released as a finished project, which means there are no updates or new additions for the resource pack for now. There are probably no more updates until Minecraft 1.15 is released. But it is just a possibility, as there are no confirmed news of an update for the resource pack. But don’t let this get you discouraged, it’s a well-done resource pack that doesn’t lack anything. Almost every single texture is changed in this resource pack. It is a great resource pack if you are looking to change Minecraft and give it a fresher look, but still maintain the same good old Minecraft look and feel.

Mad Pixels 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 - 1.12.2 - 1.12 - 1.11.2 - 1.11 - 1.10.2 - 1.10 - 1.9.4 - 1.9 - 1.8.1 - 1.8.6 - 1.8

    I love this pack but, the 1.17 goat is not done or even touched but still this pack is amazing

  3. Jackson

    does this work on 1.15 java??

  4. Takanik Hidoka

    Nice texture pack, but I think you should put some breaking texture instead of the gauge that appears when you break a block

  5. RandomL

    Hello, I would like to ask if I can use this as a base texture pack?
    This is the perfect base I could use. I will give you full credit if you would like, but I understand if you would not allow this. I just wanted to ask before immediately doing so, thank you-RandomL

  6. Hakan Göksu

    I can not see the crafting book. That’s the first problem. The mineral stones are not really indistinguishable. Like you can’t recognize if it is diorite or stone… The language that I choose is not supported by your font. I really want to help about this! Otherwise, it is really perfect!

  8. RandomMcGamer

    it works for me but do you have a fix for the Incompatible message in the resourcepack folder? thats really the only reason i downlaoded this 1.11 file

  9. SC

    I downloaded it and I did everything as said, but it still didn’t work. I’m not sure why. Maybe it has to do because I’m in Widows 10 so I can’t do the %appdata% thing, but I still was able to put it in my resource file under .minecraft

    1. Sage Sage

      You CAN do the %appdata% thing mah dude
      I’m on windows 10 and use it ALL the time for basically everything

    2. Helen

      On windows 10 – Right click on the Start button on the bottom left (where the menu is). Click on “Run”. In the box that comes up type %appdata% and press return. That takes you to your Minecraft Roaming folder. Double click on .Minecraft in the folders that come up and you’ll see Resource packs under that.
