8-bitCraft 2 Texture Pack 1.18, 1.18.2 → 1.16.5

Author Beautiful_dev

Usually, it is common to try to get the maximum out of Minecraft. However, the 8-bit Craft 2 Texture Pack is different, because it makes the textures more simple and not more realistic. You’ll probably have seen simple textures in other packs before, but in this case, the very low resolution is special. As the name suggests, all the blocks, objects, and creatures are at only 8 pixels. The differences compared to vanilla Minecraft are very clear because the resolution is halved. If you look very closely, you can only see similarities in the items. Whereas the blocks have been completely redesigned and are now much simpler and more colorful.

You might be wondering why you should play with the pack when the graphics are getting more pixelated. One advantage is that 8bit-Craft 2 gives you an FPS boost in Minecraft. This makes the entire game run smoother and there are significantly fewer lags. By the way, there are also alternatives, such as F8thful and Rodrigo’s Pack. One major difference is that these alternatives offer you much fewer features. While all three packs have simplistic blocks, the 8-bit Craft 2 texture pack has so much more features to offer.

Best Features

  • The glass is not connected to each other in the default pack and thus unsightly borders appear. The creator of the project is aware of this problem, which is why he has connected all glasses. This gives you the possibility to build large windows without frames.
  • There are also connected blocks. As a result, the landscape looks much nicer, because everything blends into each other. The Texture Pack is far superior to its competition because of the support of this feature.
  • In addition, you have the possibility to create custom items. To do this, you need to go to an anvil in your world and change the name of the item. You can use the following names for diamond and netherite swords: Neon Pink Katana, NB Pride Sword, and Rainbow Sword. You can find a complete name list on the official Discord server.

In our opinion, these are the best features of the 8bitCraft 2 texture pack. In addition, there are the following features to discover: glowing stuff, item skins, new plant variations, and 3D models. Ultimately, it’s the simplicity and the many configuration options that stand out. Apart from that, it can be noted that the textures look much cuter and have a fabulous design.

Fortunately, there is a port for MCPE. What is special is that the user beautiful_developer has released 8-bitCraft 2 for MCPE for free. As a Bedrock player, you usually have to buy Minecoins with real money and only then you can access texture packs in the Marketplace. In this case, the download link on our site will be sufficient and will redirect you to the official download page.
