If you like trying out unique resource packs that bring something new and unusual to the table, then Visible Ores resource pack is one of your possible choices. Every Minecraft player knows that it can be quite tedious to find and even notice some of the rarer ores, especially in the dark caverns that you’re likely going to be mining at. The main purpose of the Visible Ores texture pack is to ease that process and eventually make the game even more enjoyable. Unlike most of the other packs that utilize X-ray and essentially make you feel like you’re cheating, Visible Ores manages to retain the vanilla experience and doesn’t nullify that feeling of success and joy once you encounter diamonds, emeralds, or any other valuable material. You won’t be able to simply see through the blocks at the press of a button – it still requires you to go through all the necessary progression and well-known mining expeditions. At its core, Visible Ores simply highlights and outlines every ore vein that you can find in caves – coal, iron, gold, diamond, and others. The glow is not overwhelming, but just enough to help you notice it in the dark.
Visible Ores is one of the best resource packs for new players who’d like to make the game a tad bit easier. No textures in the game have been altered at all, which makes it great for everyone who wants to take in the vanilla Minecraft experience. Also, this resource pack is supported by all online servers since it doesn’t bring you any advantages over other players. With Visible Ores, you’ll have more time left to enjoy other aspects of the game such as building, adventuring, visiting new dimensions, etc. To use Visible Ores, you’ll need to have Optifine installed. The resource pack uses its emissive/connected textures feature in order to work and display properly. It goes without saying that all the textures retain their 16×16 original resolution, which means that you won’t experience any FPS drops. You could even notice a performance increase if you didn’t have Optifine installed previously. If you want to make Minecraft look even prettier, there is a labPBR release of the resource pack. This version requires shaders, but it will give every ore its appropriate blocklight color for a unique glow. The Visible Ores resource pack supports Minecraft versions from 1.15 all the way up to 1.17.
Visible Ores should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 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 - 1.16.5 - 1.16.4 - 1.16.3 - 1.16.2 - 1.16.1 - 1.16

If you want ores to glow, you need shaders. Get shaders here.
For this resource pack to work, it must always be at the top of your active packs.

1. Install sodium,
2. Install Iris,
3. Install Complementary Shaders v4 (curseforge)
Working perfectly fine with default settings of shaders.

Hey, ive used two versions of this pack (2.7 and 2.9) while running on different optifine versions for 1.19.2 and 1.19.3. For some reason, the pack is extremely inconsistent and there are many issues. First, the ores sometimes will only have an outline and some with, not glow, but rather the outlines and ores are just extremely bright. Second, most of the time the ores will at seemingly random be replaced with matte textures covering most if not all of the ore. This matte texture will sometimes flicker and swap between colors. Lastly, the pack will just make some block patches entirely textureless and invisible. Also, though not very concerning, the 2.9 version says is incompatible for the versions but 2.7 doesn’t (again 1.19.2-3). I am running on required settings, emmisive on and connected textures on fancy. I have also used my BSL shaders, but that fixes none of the previous issues, if not just further pointing out the glow inconsistencies.
so when i open it with java it says” unable to install java” and i have java downloaded
Is there any way in a future update to adjust how much light/brightness is added or taken away from the “glow” effect? I really like the simplicity of this mod, but wish I could tone down the brightness a bit, as with BSL and SEUS shaders make the glow extremely bright, with the brightness scale down at “moody”.
Is work for 1.16.5 ?
so I have opitifine and everything, but how do I get the bsl shaders?
Just check out our shaders category (top right menu), choose the one you like best and read the installation instructions for that particular shader pack. Most shader packs are installed in the same way as resource packs, only in the shaderpack folder.
nice, x raying is now easier for me now :D
you x ray?
I have done everything for the modpack to work and it doesnt glow for me. can someone please help me
It’s not a modpack, it’s a resource pack and should be installed like all other resource packs. Make sure you have optifine installed and set the recommended settings.
yes i have done all of that and still not glowing
Did you enabled Emissive Textures in settings?
yes i even have bsl shaders on
We took the time to test it. On our side it works fine. We used Optifine HD U H8, bsl shaders and minecraft version 1.19. The only thing we can think of why this doesn’t work for you is probably that it’s not at the very top of the list of active resource packs or you are not running the optifine version of Minecraft.
Hey dude, not sure if you sorted it out yet but make sure you put the glowing ores resource on top of all the resources, at least that’s what worked for me. Hope this helped but if you need further assistance I can send some pics maybe? or email me
I am dealing with which it does not work on previous versions it worked for me but not now?
the regular gold ore for version 1.19.x doesn’t have an outline? possibly a bug?
it works good cause I dont like the brightness high I like it low so i can see ores much better
uhm idk if i did it wrong or something but the blocks dont glow they just have an outline around them so idk
its because your brightness is high
no just turn on Emissive textuers
idk how to do that bc i dont have it
Is this compatible with 1.19 and the newest version of Optifine? Seems to work weird in 1.19, with newest version of Optifine and BSL shaders.
Since updating to 1.19 and updating to Optifine supported 1.19, somehting’s weird with the resource pack. I get the updated texture from the ores, aka the colored outline of the block,and sometimes updated color. But I don’t get the destinct glow. I have the required settings on, but there still is no glow. I’ve tried messing around with lighting settings, but no result.
What could be the cause?
Bruu I cant even use this
make it for 1.19.1 ver please
You can use it in 1.19
This is different than an xray, correct? And compatiable with other packs? (ie Mizuno)
It’s not really an x-ray, we just marked it in the x-ray category. We think it’s more suitable for those who are looking for an easier ore grinding method. We haven’t tried it, but if put on top of Mizuno, we think it should work.
how do i make the blocks light up
Please read the “Required Settings” and “Important Information” sections of this page.
does this work on 1.18.2
I would love this with Jicklus ores if anyone knows how to make that happen.
this looks so good AND cool
I was really hoping that the blocks will glow unfortunally they don´t but still very cool.
You should first read the “Required Settings” and “Important Information” sections on this page.
How do I get “a LabPBR” version for that?
If we’re not wrong, you don’t need to download a separate version for this. You just need to install BSL shaders and enable labPBR in shader settings.
There is nothing about PBR in BSL shader settings.
