Better Default Texture Pack 1.19, 1.19.4 β†’ 1.18.2

Author OwlsCubed

The normal Minecraft blocks and items don’t look very nice. Probably you are also one of those who want to make the gameplay a bit more visually appealing. However, you should be aware that the Better Default texture pack reviewed here makes only minimal changes and stays faithful to the classic Minecraft style. Moreover, the resolution used is exactly the same one used by Mojang. This is strange in the sense that the new textures are not seriously different from the old ones. Also, Marketplace texture packs actually have to be clearly different from official game content to avoid confusion. For example, this is why Bare Bones was not released for the Minecraft Marketplace. Apparently, the Better Default texture pack offers enough innovations to fulfill all criteria.

All in all, the textures are not revolutionary, but rather average. The modifications are too minor and consequently barely noticeable. Fortunately, there are also a few bright spots that are actually really good. For example, the GUI is much better illustrated. By the way, the development team has also made the Space Station pack, which is extremely popular among players. They will be happy if you send them your suggestions for both projects. You can then contribute your ideas to make both packs even better.


Better Default is compatible with these Minecraft versions: 1.19.4 – 1.19.3 – 1.19.2 – 1.19.1 – 1.19 – 1.18.2 – 1.18 – 1.17.1 – 1.17 – 1.16.5 – 1.16

Video & Screenshots

You won’t see it on the screenshots, but almost every block can have different textures. Because of this, you get more variety because not everything looks the same anymore. A great example is a cobblestone wall. It doesn’t look quite as boring and depressing any more thanks to the new variations. There are over 1000 texture variations in total, which is extremely high. This makes your buildings look more realistic, and by the way, the members of the development team are also enthusiastic builders in Minecraft.

Every pack has its right to exist, but unfortunately, the Better Default texture pack didn’t convince us in all aspects. In addition, Bedrock players have to spend money on it. Java players can get it for free. It is still advisable to try out alternatives like the New Default+ pack.
