ModernArch Realism Resource Pack 1.16 / 1.15

One of the best resource packs that one can find for the newer versions of Minecraft is ModernArch Realism. Sometimes, one can be unimpressed after downloading one of the countless free resource packs. ModernArch resource pack, on the other hand, is not likely to disappoint you. What sets ModernArch apart from most other texture packs is that it uses real images to replace cartoonish and blocky minecraft textures. Actual photographs of stone, wood, and brick are used to give the game a photorealistic look. Designed by popular minecraft content creator PackMinecraft, the new resource pack was built with realism instead of improved cartoonish graphics in mind. While this is not the first realism-focused Minecraft resource pack to be released, it is widely considered to be better than many other alternatives. A lot of resource packs make the graphics excessively colorful, the ModernArch pack, on the other hand, uses more subdued colors.

The new textures give the buildings plenty of depth and look better than either the minimalist default graphics or the graphics of other new resource packs. What is also noticeable is the quality of the lighting effects. The lighting effects firmly stand out and are enough to recommend ModernArch over the alternatives. Certainly, the graphics look best if the textures are used in their full 512×512 resolution. However, it is also possible to use the resource pack with a resolution as low as 128×128 to make the graphics usable on lower-end computers. As is the case for other high-end resource packs, one can run into frame rate issues if the full resolution is used without sufficiently powerful hardware. For the new graphics to work as well as possible, one has to use shaders. The creator recommends that you download the SEUS shader that works well with the ModernArch. The pack at the current point in time is free for 128x and 256x versions, 512x and 1024x resolutions are supported by donations.

    to the people who downloaded this without this knowledge, you need the SEUS Shader for all the reflections and 3D Objects, don’t call this resource pack bad without checking the whole pack out, to be honest the pack looks really good with SEUS, so please go download that before using this.

  8. Vlaqly

    The transparency on the leaves is not working, if you know how that works, i suggest to extract the files, fix that and then compress it back

    Hello, I love the texture pack but two things I wanna point out.

    1) Stuff like grass looks extremely “grainy” with some distance (using 512). Any fix for that?

    2) The Glowstone texture could be more interesting. For example, I really love the S&K Realism texture.

    Keep up the good work!

  10. i fleexyzz

    yo i have a little problem for my part , 3D textures works but the surface of the block is squared
    with some invisible reflective thing so if you can help me i would be happy

  11. Kino Reyes

    can’t load the resource pack what to do??

  12. Ace

    My house is on a mushroom island and none of those blocks or changed so it really ruins the pack

  13. Alexander Jareth O’Brien

    lets see. Lava and water didnt change like shown in the video. Only wheat, out of all the crops changed. pumpkins and watermelon changed. all the animals are the same so thats disappointing. while I LOVE the revamp of the blocks, they really are cool, they totally destroy the ability to build anything that looks cool cause nothing goes together. and if you color anything, like glass or beds, they dont change. back to old block style.

  14. Gefferson Hortelano

    my leaves are bugged, they have vertical 1 dimension shape on each block

  15. Ricardo Rios

    Is a RTX card required?

  16. PeePeePooPoo
