BlockPixel Texture Pack 1.21 → 1.20, 1.20.6

Author Jakob.Zero

The BlockPixel texture pack for Minecraft was released back in 2011 but was not available to the wider Minecraft community outside of China until 2018. This is primarily due to the fact that the creator is Chinese and had previously made BlockPixel available only in his country.

At that time in 2011, the creator had just started playing Minecraft and didn’t like the square blocks. Therefore, he decided to create his own graphics. The core concept is based on creating a mysterious pixelated environment with square patterns. This unique art style is recognizable from the moment you start using the texture pack. Each block is made up of square patterns, giving the game a retro look and feel.

Best Features

A striking feature is the simulated temperature difference between biomes. The color scheme changes depending on the biome you are in, creating a sense of coldness or warmth depending on the area you are in. This psychological temperature makes you feel like you are really exploring different environments. Additionally, the creatures look cute, which has a calming effect on players. If you want to add more cute animals to your Minecraft garden, download ZigZag.

BlockPixel also features custom block and item models in 3D, which adds depth to some Minecraft elements. This is limited to rails and plants because more realistic textures would not fit into the pack. If you prefer more realistic textures, you can check out Classic 3D.

A few blocks are also animated in a cartoon style, bringing your game world to life. The randomized textures make every Minecraft house unique, ensuring that you have fun building new bases. In addition, the BlockPixel resource pack also has nostalgic sound effects, connected textures, and easter eggs. These small additions help make the gameplay feel more personalized.

Finally, BlockPixel can be used on both high-end and low-end machines for gaming, as the 16x resolution ensures that no operating system will have a problem with it. As of now, all files are compatible with every Minecraft edition. You will not notice any missing blocks or items when playing with a compatible version.

  1. Hey. I really like this texture pack. There’s one problem I’ve spotted however. Putting banners on shields don’t work correctly. Is there a reason for that?
