ModernArch Realism Resource Pack 1.17 / 1.16

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 version, 512x and 1024x resolutions are supported by donations.

ModernArch R 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

    im sorry but it disgusts me its to realistic

    Downloaded the 128x to try for MC version 1.16.4 but the download says its just 1.17 ..Not 1.15 – 1.17. So wont work with my version. Such a shame, looks brilliant. :( Is there a specific one for 1.16.4 ? Anyone else having this issue or have i done something wrong maybe.? I placed it in the resource pack folder and i have seus. The pack is in red which makes sence as i dont have 1.17.

    1. Admin (

      Just ignore the incompatibility message and click yes / ok.

    2. DaBlox

      Update it. Its free!!!

    I have been using your vine models since MC1.14 but discovered a few days ago that the models do not work with the 1.18 experimental snapshot. All other custom modeling I use is working just fine with the snapshot. I played around and tried a couple other custom vine models from other packs and get the same results. Obviously the way vines are created has changed with the new version. It appears as if the classic block models/textures are no longer used. Just FYI.

    I love it !
    The furnace as amazing as it is, is it possible to make a small alternative where a furnace isn’t a stove?
    In gameplay it makes me feel I HAVE to make a very modernized house, because to me, it doesn’t fit well in gameplay without other mods that add to modern living-styled gameplay, then when I do build that style, I struggle finding the specific blocks that would compliment it.

    It is a beautiful stove (so any downloader or whoever reading this, I don’t think it should discourage–it’s amazing still) and I adore the materials, but I just miss the classic furnace look, and personally that’s what holds me back from using your resource pack as a go-to.

    The overworld is perfect, the way stone looks and bricks are jaw-dropping, it’s my favorite I’ve found, in my opinion it surpasses a lot of the other realistic texture packs that are currently out there.

    Also for people who struggle with FPS, try using Iris/Sodium (Idk if I should leave a link there, pretty sure that’s an easy way to get this comment removed) though the website has “/IrisShaders/Iris” in the URL (to check if it’s the original website, it could change too) if you’re worried about virus’s. It works really well, and you can use shaders & fabric mods with it. Their website clarifies some problems with certain shaders, so some will not work.
    For higher resolution stuff >128 with shaders it’ll likely still be rough for a lower-end PC, but it could still be worth a try. If you cannot run the 128 version smoothly, the higher resolutions probably won’t work for you.

    my pc broke

  7. Sven Reinold

    I play with a 1060 and ir gets like 300 fps when i don’t move. Massive frame drops down to 11 fps when i look around. And looking at a house crashes the game. Without SEUS shader. 128px version.

    How come I can’t find 1.16.5 but can download the latest? And 256x was free, did ya’ll update it to only membership?

    1. Admin (

      We don’t really understand what you are talking about? This pack is 1.16.x compatible, it was never free for 256x, only 128x was free.

  18. MRwantToKnow

    The leaves are just messed up, any way to fix this?

  19. Bagel

    Why can’t people just do a mediafire link.. I’m struggling so hard rn. I can’t download it from that link, because windows stops it, I don’t know why. Windows is just telling me to run the network diagnostics, which fail when I run them.. odd.

    1. Admin (

      Not everyone prefers mediafire as it is full of ads, while Google Drive is a pretty safe place to download without ads.

      1. Galadriel

        that does not make any sense

        1. Admin (

          What exactly? Anyway, we just provide the official links. We do not have permission to re-upload the packs to another place. Google drive or mediafire is the decision of the authors.

  20. Repute

    Its not even finished and they wanna have money for higher resolution? I have standard weapon and tool models in it. The boad model is also standard. Wtf? Optifine and Shader are installed. 256er resolution..

    1. Admin (

      Yes, unfortunately it’s still W.I.P. pack, but it is regularly updated, so it should be completed in the near future in our opinion.

  21. Joe bide

    Imagine making us pay for a resource pack you made for free

    1. Admin (

      We are in no way affiliated with this pack other than providing a review for it, but we simply cannot ignore such comments. Creating this type of resource packs is almost a full-time job. Imagine that you go to work and don’t get paid. In addition, we would like to remind you that the author provides the 256x version absolutely free. 256x should be more than enough for most gamers, since 512x and above will require some really decent hardware from you, and if you have the money to buy “expensive” hardware we don’t think a few dollars will be a problem for you.

      Please note that this comment is only our opinion and you are not required to agree with it. There are many quality packs available for this game, and you can always find something that’s right for you.

      1. icescoop

        damn you destroyed him nice

      2. Allelya

        The 256x version is NOT free. Only the 128x one is. I’m going to give this RP a try. THEN I will decide if paying for higher resolution is worth the money.

        1. Admin (

          No longer. Much has been changed by the author.

  22. alicja

    im wondering if this will work on my pc? i have some parental controls thing that doesn’t let me install apps, so i cant install optifine. if it doesn’t work are there any other cool resource packs?

  23. Matt

    i have SEUS and the pack but the textures still arent 3d, any tips?

    1. Admin (

      You are probably talking about the resourcepack’s PTGI feature that will only work with the SEUS PTGI version shader pack.

  24. BaufGamer

    Does not work even though i have optifine and seus…

    1. Admin (

      It would be nice to explain exactly what problem you are facing.
      Maybe we can help with your problem.

  25. R3ndomperson

    It was cool,but i did not like it beacuse it almost destroyed my pc

  26. Everest

    I got it but it was total different

    1. Admin (

      Will be, if you do not have shaders and optifine installed.

    2. Dimitri Panayi

      did you have to pay for it?

      1. Admin (

        256x is free

  27. Unity

    My only problems with this is that its not fully complete with 1.16, but i understand that it takes time and is kind a pain in the ass to add new textures, and that it isnt compatible with SEUS Renewed 1.01 shaders. It works, but all the textures are messed up. 5 stars, because it takes a ton of effort, even though its not perfect. Thank You!

  28. RMWM

    Oddly incomplete – for instance, the iron sword is retextured but the iron axe isn’t. What there is, is very nice, I particularly like the leaves. One to keep an eye on – shows promise..

  29. Badgent

    Hey, im put on the pack, and i cant resume the game. Whats happening?

    1. Admin (

      Are you sure your device supports the resolution you selected?

  30. Fernando

    I love it

  31. redfirefox333

    looks cool
    although it says page not found
    what do I do?

    1. Admin (

      We use official links, but we update them manually, it takes time.
      If the links don’t work here, you can always visit the official website (included in the download section) to find the up-to-date download links.

    how do i download it i go to google drive and no option to download

    1. Admin (

      Google Drive has a download button. Just check the top right corner.

      1. TheGamingExpert

        in which version does it works?

        1. Admin (

          Depends on the download link you choose.
          There are links to 1.16.x – 1.15.x and 1.14x – 1.13.x.

  44. Elcispop

    the reviews were right, its a horrible pack. everything is basically vanilla minecraft textures. @ 256 you would think it would still look better then vanilla

    1. Admin (

      The pack is still under development and may contain many default vanilla textures.

      my computer is suck but ı use this texture pack on survival and

  47. hdvqiygdfqvwqd

    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.

    1. MrCarrot

      You are so right mate, everyone download SEUS if you want this to fully work

      1. Unity

        for me seus renewed messed up the textures really badly, so im just using seus v11, not renewed or ptgi

  48. Enes

    Which shader should I use to make it look like this?

  49. Arnold Vermeulen

    256x looks nothing like what’s in the video.

  50. Clement Poon

    Can u support 1.16 plz?

  51. Pablo Hones

    this was probably the worst pack ive ever downloaded, dont waste your money

    1. ddsfsdfs

      you need seus shaders m8

  52. Wangi Bunga Bangkai

    Nice Job!

  53. 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

  54. Angarok

    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!

  55. 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

  56. Ace

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

  57. 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.

    1. unknown

      LMAOOOO u need a shader

  58. Gefferson Hortelano

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

  59. Ricardo Rios

    Is a RTX card required?

  60. PeePeePooPoo

    Wood stretched too much, Stone is ugly, i’ll put a 1 diamond out of 5
