Many creative Minecraft projects have been released over time. One of them is the 1×1 texture pack that we’re going to show you now. It is absolutely unique because it is so incredibly simple and reduces the pixels to a minimum. Normally each block in the default pack has a 16x resolution, but in this pack there is only one pixel on each block. This has some advantages, but also some disadvantages.
First, let’s tell you about the positive facts. The biggest advantage is that the graphics are completely minimalistic and you get an extreme FPS boost in Minecraft. This is because the rendering requires much less computer power. This allows players with low-end computers or cell phones to play without lags. This makes it possible for you to enjoy the Minecraft gameplay without any problems. Playing with this pack is fun even with a good PC, because it’s a real challenge to win a round of Bedwars or SkyWars with simplistic textures.
Furthermore, it is great that the 1×1 texture pack requires very little memory. Of course, this is again due to the simple textures. Nowadays, this is certainly not that important anymore, because most memory cards offer a lot of space. It’s still worth mentioning, because you may already have many programs installed and have little space on your hard drive.
Of course, there are also negative aspects, but they are not very serious. One bad thing we noticed while playing is that it is sometimes hard to distinguish the textures. This is not a criticism of the creator, because it is actually harder than you think to create a good looking 1×1 texture pack, because the possibilities are very limited. By the way, he calculated the average color of each Minecraft texture so he knew which colors to use.
We recommend that you first get used to the new items and only then play PvP. Otherwise, you might mistake a netherite sword for a wooden sword if you don’t pay attention. It’s best to always check the name in your inventory to see what you have in your hand.
Besides, Minecraft looks much worse with such a low resolution. You’ll have to put up with that if you want an FPS boost. Furthermore, you should be aware that everything has been simplified. This includes the health bar and the hunger bars in the heads-up display. You can also check out 8×8 texture packs if this pack is too simple for you. These are more detailed than this pack.
Very importantly, this guide is for Minecraft Java Edition. Nevertheless, the pack is also available for MCPE and Bedrock.
You’ll think to yourself while playing that you forgot to put on glasses. This 1×1 pack is the exact opposite of a realistic texture pack.
