URBAN Resource Pack 1.20 / 1.19

There are very few projects that get you excited. The URBAN resource pack appears to be one of the few that manages to stir the interest of even the most veteran Minecraft players. This is because it is not just a texture resolution upscale. It is also not just a recoloring of existing textures. It is the kind of project that takes hours of sleepless nights to come to fruition. Developed by artist Aryan Nikose, the URBAN texture pack set itself on the ambitious path of completely changing how Minecraft looks, feels, and plays. It manages to make the game breathtaking. A true eye candy that a player can just sit and admire. Pushing the capabilities of the game, the artist had to resort to path-traced shaders. For this purpose, the developer chose to use BSL, a commonly available shader pack for Minecraft. It pushed BSL to its limits to accomplish something that no longer looks like a blocky game. The URBAN resource pack brings a certain degree of photorealism that is unprecedented in Minecraft. Objects and items look stunningly real, albeit with more corners and sharp edges but completely different than what they look like in vanilla Minecraft. The work done by the developer using BSL shader’s features would not suffice to make Minecraft so visually beautiful. It had to be supported by improved textures. For this reason, Aryan Nikose had to develop it using higher resolution textures. The lowest resolution available is 128x which is in itself resource demanding.

There is also a 512x and a 1024x version which is even more demanding and requires a considerably powerful computer to run properly. However, the 128x version a little bit pales in comparison to the 1024x one. There is such a level of detail that pixels on textures are no longer observable. Every single texture on any object in the game is smooth and photorealistic. Such a level of realism was achieved by reworking and designing completely new textures. It is not enough to upscale existing resolutions. Many textures were created manually to ensure that they perfectly represent the vision of Aryan Nikose for the game. He added many new textures in the game such as new types of stone, wood, tools crates, sand and more. There are also new models for certain objects that have more polygons to make them more realistic. Things such as small rocks, leaves, grass, all have more polygons to make them appear considerably closer to reality. While there may not be much information available about the URBAN resource pack, the developer uses his official channels to communicate updates. He shares the progress of his work over Instagram and has a dedicated Patreon page for the URBAN resource pack. The 128x version of his resource pack is available for free. Higher resolution ones are available for author’s Patreon subscribers that is meant to support the creator continue his work on the resource pack. It is also on Patreon where the developer posts future updates and the latest version first.

URBAN should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 1.20.6 - 1.20.5 - 1.20.4 - 1.20.3 - 1.20.2 - 1.20.1 - 1.20 - 1.19.4 - 1.19.3 - 1.19.2 - 1.19.1 - 1.19 - 1.18.2 - 1.18.1 - 1.18 - 1.17.1 - 1.17 - Bedrock Edition - PE

    what would the pack look like for the 128x?

    1. Admin

      Slightly more pixelated than the higher versions, but also with higher fps, especially if you have lower hardware.

  2. chris

    some swords in 1.19.2 and 1.20 pack are missing

    1. URBAN

      covered and fixed.

  3. PkWolf

    Great Urban/Modern texture packs. hadn’t had any issues except a few texture glitches. So far I’ve only seen the second half of the double chest and beds glitch out. like multiple textures combined, and the top of bed looks like wood making it look like a bench rather than a bed. That’s not the texture glitch but thought I’d bring it up since not sure if it was intentional or part of the glitch. Other than that the textures are perfect. Might be my favorite Urban TP.

    1. PkWolf

      Yep now even my inventory is back to vanilla and same with several items. this sucks I was really enjoying this texture pack. Also im up to date both on mc java and the texture pack in case yall were wondering.

    2. URBAN

      The chest and bed in URBAN are jem models and require optifine.

  4. Eccentric Warmonger

    I really want to use this resource pack. However, I’m running it with the BSL shader (latest version) and there are so many glitches. For example, chunks just disappear or chunks render with no shader values and are flat colors. I’ve left everything alone with the shader packs, so I’m using out of the box values. Any ideas?

  5. Soulinks

    While most things look nice, the stone blocks are just horrendous looking. Bye bye pristine and nice looking Stone Bricks! Hello grimy dirt looking stones instead. And what is with the Chiselled Stone blocks? Horrible! Quite disappointing. I was hoping for some really nice and tidy stone blocks to use with this pack, too.

    1. Shimi86

      Just use the Deepslate tile or the smooth stone? The stone brick looks great for roads.

  6. Minecraft

    pls fix tree leaves. Very buggy with black collor particles.
    is not cool

  7. Shimi86

    The doors texture is messed up in 1.19.3 with Optifine (Pre3 -1.19.3) and BSL Shaders. So are the shovels and hoes. Is there a way to fix this?

  8. Vaina

    I haven’t seriously played Minecraft since pre-1.14 and this was just what I needed to get back into the game, thank you so much <3 9/10

    Two critiques, I can't run the god rays without getting a hazy pixelation around blocks in the path of the sunlight (which may be entirely due to my poor GPU), and more importantly the skybox glitches underwater which I cannot seem to find a fix for. Any ideas? Otherwise everything looks amazing and really brings a surprisingly immersive feel for a voxel-based game~

    1. Vaina

      Oh, I should mention I’m running it on 1.19.2 instead of .3 after noticing the same incompatibility errors that others were.

  9. nutella

    It’s not real, it’s much worse than it looks. don’t believe

    1. Admin

      It’s real if you installed it correctly. Don’t forget that you will need optifine and shaders with correct settings for this pack to work.

  10. xN03L

    is good or not?

  11. Gamer001rGr

    Is it compatible with Iris shaders (that thing similar to optifine) ?

  12. Gary

    Incompatible with latest update. 1.19.3

  13. urbanfan

    Using this on the 1.19.3 optifine HD U 12 pre2 – as it’s the newest optifine release, there is significant lag and I noticed the diamond Hoe textures are pink and black (incomplete).

    I was previously using 1.19.2 optifine and it worked great, will switch back to the older version for now.

    I will try the texture pack with the full optifine 1.19.3 release when it’s available.

    Just wanted to make you aware that the pack may need updating to work properly and smoothly with 1.19.3.

    Will be honest though this is definitely one of the best texture packs out there. It’s how Minecraft is supposed to look, keep up the fantastic work!

    (using the x128 version)

    1. URBAN

      Hey sir, Will definately look into it.
      Thanks for the review <3

  14. Starcoolman

    I tried downloading, but it instead sent me to a google drive. What do I do?

    1. Starcoolman

      nvm i got it

      1. OOF3679

        so the same thing is happening to me and it is taking me to google drive what did you do th download it

    2. Admin

      Download from google drive. What’s the issue?

  15. andy

    hey i dont know how to download the texture pack help please

    1. DesmonatorTX

      click one of the downloads, go into minecraft, go to settings, options, resource packs, open file folder, downloads, click on the top one, then click open near the name at the bottom, click yes, then click the pack you just downloaded, then click it again, then hit done.

  16. harley

    I’m confused what do you mean by open the zip file also when I downloaded the urban texture pack and then when I opened it there was nothing in the file.

  17. Gabe

    It’s not 3d like it shows in the pictures???

    1. Admin

      You need optifine and shaders for the same effect.

    2. DesmonatorTX

      use a 3d resource pack

  18. Commix

    Book Shelf broken and Netherite Pickaxe aswell..

  19. Anonimowy

    texture of door are broken

  20. sid

    Lol I got this but I ran 30 fps but it was worth it

  21. a gamer

    I like this but to me the none textured things just make it out of place for me

    1. Gabe

      same, they dont change any of the food items, powdered snow is unchanged, and more

  22. zach

    The door textures are bugged out making it look awful. plz fix asap

  23. Seinaru

    Looks not bad but game start lagging and door and over door textures are bugged. and making the game hard laggy

  24. tyson

    this resource pack looks great (my opinion)

  25. Dan


    I have been using your resource pack for a few months now since the 1.18 version. I am really pleased with the aesthetic and everything has worked fine until the last few weeks. I recently started to experience an interference while playing with this resource pack. All of a sudden my Razer devices lightning (keyboard, mouse, base station) starts to flicker and stutter and the game starts to lag. It comes and goes, but it is super annoying. Have you, or anyone else experienced something similar? Tried to switch to vanilla to see if the problem was recurring, but everything went smoothly then. Nothing wrong with my razer devices, as they work perfectly playing other video games. I have installed the newest version of optifine as well as the newest version of this resource pack. Help

    1. Aryan

      Probably because the pack is so heavy, try to Allocate more RAM to Minecraft. This might fix the problem but I am not sure as nobody has experienced this issue, so it’s a bit hard for me to tell.

  26. Lol

    Give me that pls

  27. Nick

    just saying but it would have been nice to know these arent free here instead of after clicking the link. also, whats the point of a $2 membership with support to a pack you cant download unless you bump it up to $4?

    1. Admin

      All resource pack reviews posted on our website will always have a link to the free version available to everyone. In other words, all packs on our site are free, but some of them will have additional links to premium versions (usually just higher resolution editions or various premium add-ons). We just can’t mark a resource pack as “PAID” if it’s not paid, it still has a free full version. As for the links – each link has a subtle clarification whether the pack is free or not. You don’t need to click on it. We are always working to improve the user experience of the website, but sometimes it is difficult to make changes due to many different factors. It takes time and tests not to risk making it even worse))

  28. Ufocat

    This works amazing on my Xbox one

  29. Waredog

    Cause u might not be using optifine.

  30. bryce

    ill give this a 5 out of 10 some textures are missing and bugging (video proof) not everything is changed the tools look stupid (my opinion)

    1. PIGGY24561

      i agree i wasnt usng optifine but textures were missing and/or bugging out the leaves texture was not done properly

  31. Lina

    Ive got some questions:
    1. Are the premium versions completed? coz Ive read in the comments theres still vanilla textures at least on the free version
    2. Is optifine required? I need sodium to play minecraft on the lastest versions, so I cant use optifine coz its non compatible

    1. Nick

      Premium and Free, both got the same amount of blocks covered.
      But optifine is superly required here.

  32. Effe

    is it normal that i still have the vanilla UI and some items (eggs, books..) too?

    optifine is installed and shaders are turned on aswell.

    1. Aryan

      Those aren’t textured yet, that’s not your or optifine’s issue.
      Those will be texture with upcoming updates.

  33. Tristan

    this shader is nice but to lagy for my pc my pc cot on firer

  34. butch01

    why is there invisible spaces ???? i can see caves through

  35. yanik.gmerlot11

    it´s very nice

  36. Chris

    loving the pack the only things that I’ve seen that are still vanilla are the stripped woods beside the normal oak

  37. Nyx

    I’ve noticed that the chests have a lot of Z-fighting and get really buggy when you make a double chest.
    Figured I’d bring it up.

  38. Dusk

    i love it a lot! but when i loaded it up there was a few blocks that have the black and purple null block instead like of their actual design. is there anyway i can fix it?

    1. Nick

      optifine is required!

  39. Daci

    I really love your resourse pack, can you guys please fix the blocks soulsand and soulsoil? They look exactly the same.
    Is there any fix to it?
    Thank you for you work. Looks amazing.

    1. Nick

      You are right!
      I just checked those blocks and I found out they both got the same,
      I am gonna fix them on the next update!
      Thanks for informing!!

  40. Breeze

    Is someone live right now that can help me

  41. Cryo

    A lot of the items don’t seem to be textured, and the furnace and crafting table don’t have their 3D effects. BSL is on and active, am I doing something wrong?

    1. Aryan nikose

      Download BSL_v8.1
      also go in shader options -> visuals _> turn advanced material to ON
      for better gameplay
      got to shader options->post process-> set the depth of field to ON
      and it will look amazing, I hope u enjoy

  42. Jacklox2_Plays

    Nvm i fixed it, I didn’t have the BSL Shader active xD

  43. Jacklox2_Plays

    What visual settings do you recommend for 1.18, I have the texture pack and shaders installed but some of the graphics on the blocks are missing and are see-through, Some of the blocks graphics are distorted and don’t work as shown in the Youtube Video.

  44. ViviTron

    Hey so the pickaxes are a little big. its pretty annoying. besides that things look good. If you can make the pickaxes smaller that would make it perfect

    1. Nick Aryan

      Hey thanks for reminding. I will do it soon :)

  45. adadadadadada

    lag or not lag

  46. CJ

    Looks like a very good resource pack, I read that it still has some issues especially with the 1.17+ then I’ll wait until it is. Definitely plan to download once it’s ready for 1.17.1

    1. Aryan nikose

      It’s ready now!!

  47. Light

    OMG that deepslate Redstone ore looks hot :o

    1. Aryan nikose

      thanks, I will take that as compliment :)

  48. Harry

    this is kinda good!

    1. Aryan


  49. Yeetus

    Garbage pack. The 1.17.X doesn’t actually work with 1.17.1. Lots of glitched textures and the whole “purple black block” texture thing. Absolute garbage, do not download for 1.17.X

    1. Aryan nikose

      note optifine is not 100% compatible with packs currently, u can use it in 1.16.
      I will look after 1.17 soon.

  50. Armor

    Nice armor :)

  51. Valentine

    This was the best pack I found on the internet!!
    I love how he created that wolf, great work!!

  52. SupraPlayZ

    My enchanted Diamond Sword is not loaded. its the black/purple block what is showing. Stone Sword is loading..

    1. Stickman

      I am not having this issue, u try to turn on Anisotropic filtering.

  53. TheBlindVeteran

    Oak Fence is broken comes up as a solid Purple and Black Block
    From what i can see rest looks Really nice!

    1. Aryan nikose

      It’s already fixed dude, re-download it this issue is fixed.

  54. Cauã

    I’m using the BLS shader, but the lava is purple and black, like it has no texture. And most items so black in inventory

    1. Aryan nikose

      That’s some pixelation issue cause our 1024x and 512x packs do not have this issue.
      this issue is only for 128x which is gonna be fixed soon:)

      1. Mr.Wolfy_YT

        Please post an update when it’s fixed, the purple and black checkerboard is a bit of deal breaker for survival. Love everything else

        1. Aryan nikose

          It’s coming tomorrow, just come and download it tomorrow.

    2. Aryan nikose

      It’s been work on it will be fixed soon.

  55. Afterglow555

    Hey! This pack is really good, but I’m having some problems- the lava texture is just showing as black and purple, like the texture is missing and the nether portal graphics are heavily pixilated and look strange. I don’t know what to do to possibly fix these issues, can someone please help me?
    Note: I am using the BSL shader.

    1. Aryan nikose

      While we pixilate block in different resolution due to that software issues that problem has occurred.
      but don’t worry I am gonna fix it soon.

    2. Haych

      I am also receiving this issue

  56. ragdol

    So basically all of the blocks are 2D, unlike the stuff you show in the images (1.17.1) is there a fix for this?

    1. Aryan nikose

      U need to install BSL shader.

  57. NvrKill

    Fances are bugy in 1.17.1

  58. Calzoney

    Hi Aryan,

    Is there any chance of supporting iris-mc1.17-1.1.0? OptiFine_1.17.1 can display the Bookcase and Oak Gate just fine, in OptiFine, but in Iris it returns null blocks. The reason I ask is that OptiFine has issues with chunks of invisible or glitched grass and shrubbery and Iris works well.

    The two null items could be an item naming problem, Installing Indium just changes the two items from a solid purple and black null block, to a light purple and black null block.


    1. Aryan nikose

      Ok, Calzoney,
      But the problem is that most of the blocks are POM&PBR which need optifine ,beside the grass glitches with optifine is a common issue this can be easily fixed by using BSL shader. The pack is created to use with BSL shader or if u use it without shader this glitches will always occur and if this does not fix the issue just use 1.17 pack of the texture pack cause still versions like 1.14.4 and 1.15 have still had issues according to me u must use the pack’s 1.17 version as we have a great response on that and not got any glitches or bugs.


  59. pokilopiko

    idk if its me but x128 has multiple blocks that dont have texture and some swords are half see thru

    1. Aryan Nikose

      It might be because u are using it without shaders.

  60. Jared McKano

    Ran pretty fricking smoothly!! 10/10!

    1. Aryan Nikose

      I made it highly compressed that even a 1024x pack can run on a mid-spec pc too.
      Btw, thanks for 10/10.

  61. SoulBatMan907

    I love it and its like real life

    1. Aryan Nikose

      Thanks for that compliment.

  62. Lengen_

    having an issue with the armor and swords not getting the looks and and looks like a vanilla sword and icons dont look right either

    1. Lengen_

      and plants like potatoes

    2. Aryan nikose

      this is fixed for 1.17, but old versions are still that same.

  63. Dreamland

    I tried it but almost all of the tools and armors were normal

    1. Aryan Nikose

      Free 128x have all the block textured but items and Armors my be still be vanilla.

    2. Aryan Nikose

      The day you downloaded the pack that time tools and armors were only available for 1.14 but now it’s available for 1.16-1.17.

  64. Gryffin Scott

    Hi! I’m having a bit of an issue downloading the pack. I click on the link for 1.17 and it opens up a MediaFire download link. That works, however when I click on download a new tab opens saying “This site can’t be reached, the connection was reset.” Any Suggestions on how to fix this?

    1. Admin

      We have no problem downloading from mediafire. After pressing the download button, the download should start in 1-2 seconds.

  65. Stealth

    Your crafting table and armors impressed me.I am just gonna purchase this.

    1. Aryan Nikose

      Yeh most viewers were impressed by my crafting table and armors.

  66. Chris

    The creator suggests BSL shader but I tried the pack with seus ptgi e12 and trust me if you use this pack with seus ptgi shader then no texture pack can beat this level of perfection.

  67. Kidd

    The bookshelf and iron door texture is just the error 404 texture

    1. Aryan Nikose

      Try to increase memory allocate.

  68. ssssssssssht

    looks good but the grass texture is broken

    1. Aryan nikose

      Don’t worry its fixed now.Links are updated and grass is fixed too.

      1. Keanu

        Awesome, I was also wondering when the grass would be fixed. Saw your comment, and re-installed the pack. Looks much better thanks to the update, thank you!

  69. Ijaminecraft

    Bro dude your kidding right good job tho

    1. Endrr Gamer

      Did you make oneblock?
