There are a lot of resource packs that do very little for Minecraft. While they might change some textures, increase the resolution from the standard 16x, They fail to bring any major visual improvement to the game. Pixelbos resource pack is not one of them. It is not just a resolution upscale to decrease pixelation. It does things differently while remaining loyal to what it is that makes Minecraft so recognizable. Called a premium set of textures with POM/PBR support, Pixelbos is one of the few resource packs that is very difficult not to recommend. If there is one aspect that can be considered a negative aspect of the Pixelbos texture pack is the increased texture resolution. There are several variants of the resource pack available with resolutions ranging from 64x and up to 512x. As everyone knows, the higher the resolution the bigger the toll will be on the game performance. Even the 64x version of the resource pack may be taxing for someone with an older computer as it is 4 times the standard 16X resolution used in vanilla Minecraft. Moving past the downsides of running a high-resolution resource pack, Pixelbos is popular due to its visuals. The way the Pixelbos resource pack achieves this is by using 3D textures. What this means is that textures are not flat lines and drawings that have no depth. There are shades and contours to elements on the textures that make them appear 3D despite still being 2D images projected onto blocky models.
Unlike photorealistic resource packs, the developers of Pixelbos did not use a lot of real photos to create textures. What you see instead are textures that have more dept. For example, you can see individual pebbles on a texture with proper shading, making them appear as if they are 3D. The same goes for textures for different types of ore, rocks, pavements, sand, dirt, trees, leaves, grass, plants, bricks, and more. While only around 30% of the textures in the game received this visual overhaul, it is enough to make Minecraft look considerably better. It has a cartoonish theme that is more up-to-date in terms of visuals when compared to vanilla Minecraft. The developers are still active and push constant updates. As new textures are added with each update, the Pixelbos resource pack keeps on improving Minecraft. One thing worth adding is that Pixelbos requires the BSL shader pack. According to the developers, the textures may look weird when a different shader is used. What is certain is that the resource pack cannot achieve such a visual improvement without a shader pack installed. As far as resolution options go, the developers offer the 64x version for free. There is a 128x, 256x, and a 512x resolution version of the Pixelbos resource pack but they require a Patreon membership. This means you will need to subcribe to author’s patreon page for a small fee to have access to all the latest updates first and have a higher resolution version of the Pixelbos resource pack. Before rushing to pay for a higher resolution version, it is recommended to try the free version first to check how it may impact the performance of your game.
Pixelbos should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 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
