Bare Bones Texture Pack 1.21 → 1.20, 1.20.6

Author RobotPants

Among the many talented creators in the Minecraft community, one name stands out: RobotPants, whose real name is Wytze Flietstra, has created the beloved Bare Bones texture pack. The man from the Netherlands is a key artist specializing in 3D design, and his passion for Minecraft led him to create his own wallpapers and textures. By the way, this project is inspired by the official Minecraft trailers.

The journey of the Bare Bones texture pack began under a different name: MCMojang. However, the name was changed because it was not very unique. RobotPants chose the new title because he wants to make Minecraft look as simple as possible and not add any fancy stuff. And, spoiler alert, he has achieved this goal brilliantly. Despite its simplicity, the pack still includes animated blocks and items. In our in-game tests, we found out that all textures were 100% complete and free of bugs. It’s also important to note that the base version of Bare Bones is not intended for PvP modes like BedWars or SkyWars, but you can download an extra PvP add-on. This is just one of the many add-ons and mod patches you can get in our download section.

Released in May 2017, the first version for Java quickly gained popularity due to its resemblance to official Minecraft advertisements. In August 2019, RobotPants released the first version of the Bare Bones resource pack for Bedrock, bringing its unique artistic style to players on other platforms. However, RobotPants faced a hurdle when he tried to publish the pack on the Minecraft Marketplace. The Microsoft team expressed concerns that the textures could be mistaken for official game content, and as a result, RobotPants decided to release the pack for free on all platforms, including Java, Bedrock, and MCPE. So you can play it anytime and anywhere, and we highly recommend giving it a try.

By the way, the author RobotPants follows also other guys from the community on social media, such as Ewan Howell, who published the popular F8thful and Black & White packs. Both developers regularly release new updates, so we recommend downloading all projects that come from them.


Is the Bare Bones texture pack used in the Minecraft trailers?

No, but this texture pack is based on those trailers.

I’m using the Bare Bones PBR addon pack, but I don’t see any changes, how do I make the maps show up?

Go to Options > Video Settings > Shaders > Shaders Options > Lighting > and toggle labPBR Support, Normalmap Support on. This path is specifically for the shader Simplicissimus, for other shaders the last part of the path can be different. Just find the labPBR and Normalmap buttons.

What mods are supported with Bare Bones add-ons?

Botania, Storage, Drawers, Biomes O’ Plenty, Terrestria, Traverse, and Pixelmon.

    • Hello Not_Arkey,
      If Minecraft indicates that the pack is for a newer or older version when you activate it for 1.20.4, don’t worry! It’s just a heads-up. Click ‘Yes’ and enjoy the new textures, because it won’t affect your gameplay.

  1. The only thing I would suggest with this is fixing the shield and iron golem (or any other missing textures) for the bedrock edition. This is the greatest texture pack I have ever seen, and this detail kind of takes away from it.

    • No, while it may seem to simplify the game, it actually causes more lag because it overlays the original texture, resulting in two textures that cause the game to lag.

  2. so there’s this thing I like it I love it actually I get nice fps not like with most realistic texture packs, but the thing is the leaves and the flowering azalea leaves are just a green square with some circles on them please update it and make it look better and ill use it full time :3

    With love Mr_h3x

  3. hey i am click the 1.20 but its says “403 forbidden Access Denied” help me soon plssss (sory for bad english)

  4. I honestly don’t like that you changed the textures of certain items such as swords, picks, axes, etc. I really don’t know why you made that decision and as much as I try I can’t get used to the new textures as I feel they don’t fit with what bare bones is about, and it also takes away the essence of it looking like the Minecraft trailers. It’s really a shame because it was my favorite texture pack, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels disgusted with the new textures of the items. I hope you see this and if so please at least make a bare bones with the previous textures to the new ones that you implemented in older versions because I emphasize the new textures do not fit with bare bones and takes away the essence of resembling the trailers of Minecraft.
