Stay True Resource Pack 1.18 / 1.17

Stay True is a pretty new and popular minecraft resource pack that significantly enhances the visuals of the game to an entirely new level while also keeping the classic art style that gamers of all ages love. Stay True resource pack updates a wide range of the game’s textures to increase the appeal without disrupting the default iconic look and feel of Minecraft. Stay True isn’t the first resource pack to dramatically change the appearance of Minecraft, as other resource packs are also available that offer these features and much more. However, Stay True stands above the rest of the resource packs due to the high-quality design while also featuring an extensive list of changes that impact the visual experience in a positive way. This resource pack is especially popular with long-time users looking to freshen up the game.

The Stay True resource pack is the perfect addition for anyone looking to change the appearance of Minecraft without disrupting the classic gameplay that gamers continue to enjoy after so many years. The Stay True resource pack significantly alters many items in game, such as the grass, flowers, logs, planks, doors, and much more. The visual appearance of the Stay True also impacts the connected textures to help the entire world feel much more immersive and realistic for anyone that plays Minecraft. The standard resolution of the textures on the Stay True resource pack remains at 16×16, which prevents frame-rate drops for anyone that has a computer system that is capable of running the vanilla version of Minecraft without any issues. The pack provides a much more immersive and realistic appearance for gamers without hurting the classic charm of Minecraft.

Stay True should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 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 - 1.14.4 - 1.14.3 - 1.14.2 - 1.14

    is there a way to make the birch trees have normal green leaves? In some biomes the leaves are orange and some pink, and when a tree is in between 2 biomes it looks really strange with half of the tree being pink and half of it being orange.

  2. MooeyLovesCows

    Hopefully this is updated for 1.18! I love this pack!

  3. _treesap

    hey! i followed all of the directions on the curseforge (couldn’t comment there, don’t have twitch) to make the birch leaves green again. they’re still orange, any idea how to fix this?

    1. Admin (

      Is Optifine installed for the version of Minecraft you are using this pack on?

    the pack is amazing, but I aboslutely hate the new ore look.

  6. LittlePotato

    Such a great pack :)

  7. Fancy

    My pack is glitchy and some blocks become a solid color and invisible at certain distances and my leaves seem to be the most affected by it. Is there a fix?

  8. Kyla DeCleene

    Does this work on bedrock?

  9. Antra

    Hi so I downloaded it and everything seems to be working except that the textures aren’t connecting like in the pictures. Like how the sand and the dirt blend with one another. What could be the issue?

    1. Admin (

      This is a feature of Optifine. You need optifine for this.

  10. Mika

    I have a problem with this texture pack, the leaves look all weird and none of the textures changed and I have optifine installed, I don’t know what could be the problem.

    1. Triggerstand

      Put the graphics on fancy or higher.

  11. Benjaming miguel sanchez

    is the stay true shaders pack avaiable for minecraft bedrock edition? ive been looking for a type of shaders for a while now but it seems the 1.16.2 update has stopped all previoud shaders from working.

    1. Admin (

      Stay True is a resource pack, not a shader pack.

  12. Lauren

    I did everything but the texture pack never showed up.

  13. WoodTakah

    The loading screen changed, but the textures didn’t I have Optifine btw so I don’t know why it’s not working, I even installed the correct version of the texture pack

    1. Admin (

      This pack works great from our side. We have personally checked it.
      Please note that at first glance, you won’t notice much change as this is the default-themed pack.

  14. MiningSophia

    I am a girl and i love the lavender Awsome texture pack

  15. Moose King

    Can I disable the chests looking like presents?

    1. helikses

      that’s a Minecraft Christmas thing, the resource pack has nothing to do with it, should go away in a day or two

  16. Ank

    i think its because I don’t have optifine but the leaves are really weird. I can’t have optifine on ym small gaming laptop since Im afraid it will cause a virus or be too big but other than that, the resource pack was wonderful!

    1. Admin (

      Optifine is used by most Minecraft players. This is an essential mod for the game if you want to use resource packs with all the possible functions. Custom sky, connected textures, etc. are all optifine features. In addition, optifine will increase your fps slightly, usually not much, but still.. something.

  17. Anarchy

    The combined textures aren’t working for me, anyone know why this could be?

    1. Admin (

      Combined textures will only work if you have optifine installed, as this is an optifine feature.

  18. Grant Mills

    This is a fantastic resource pack. It walks perfectly the balance between improving the base game but not alienating the original experience. Truly an artistic touch.

  19. BlazingDrake75

    if you combine this with 3d textures (another texture pack) i think it would be the best texture pack ever made

  20. asfasfdasfsdfsf

    also i dont really like how the birch is orange i know its meant to be autumn but i kind of wish there was a way to toggle that

  21. asfasfdasfsdfsf

    i dont like how it makes less rain, i love rain
    other than that i like it but its not the best texture pack ever

  22. Riv

    Hi there, I love the texture, so cute but simple, but an issue is that the leaves are glitched, and i dont know what to do. It’s causing my game to lag, and it looks pretty bad.

    1. Reggie

      I had that too! I turned my graphics from fast to fancy and it fixed it!

  23. flaming

    can you make a version without combined textures It would make it so much better if you ask me

  24. Lucas Jackson

    One of the most beautiful textures I’ve ever seen! It’s very simple, but it makes it very beautiful

  25. Nathan Lloyd

    missing textures for some of the still-growing pumpkin vines?

  26. Tobi is Weird

    might just be me but my tree leaves are way too big. anyway to fix it?

  27. AngelOnDust

    the block blending represented in the pictures isn’t working for me. does anyone know how to fix that? many thanks AngelOnDust
