Minecraft trees are significantly improved by the Better Leaves texture pack 1.18 → 1.17. Normally, the leaves on trees are not exactly a highlight and looks especially unrealistic. This is now changing with this add-on. They are by default semi-transparent blocks with branches, at least on larger trees. It also makes a Minecraft forest look incredibly boring. That doesn’t have to be the case and that’s why we review this project.
Originally it was only possible to change the leaves with the Better Foliage mod. This is fortunately over. You should nevertheless be grateful to the creator of this mod, because he had the idea to give leaves a more realistic texture. However, you don’t have to play without mods, because the Better Leaves texture pack works perfectly with over 20 mods. These include Biomes O Plenty and Tech Reborn, for example. The list contains Forge and Fabric mods.
By the way, this texture pack is also compatible with any other one, which really makes it the perfect add-on for you. This means you can always use the bushy trees in the future. Even if you change your main pack. Anyway, it doesn’t look so good with realistic packs, because the leaves are still in the default style. Only the shape changes.
There is a great alternative from Sphax that you can install. However, the only compatible pack with this is PureBDcraft. Furthermore, there is about the same as here in Stay True that has even more features. There are a few options for you to improve the leaves in Minecraft.
You can get the Better Leaves texture pack for Java and Bedrock. The Java version is available from Curseforge and the Bedrock version from MCPEDL. However, these are different projects, so you may notice slight differences. Unfortunately, the add-on is not available for consoles, such as PS4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
The most common reason is that you are using an unsupported Minecraft version. You should also check if you have installed everything correctly.
