The Brixel texture pack is a great addition for fans of Minecraft and LEGO®. It modifies the blocks in the game to look like real LEGO® bricks, providing a nostalgic trip back to childhood, when you built the coolest LEGO® sets in your nursery. Unfortunately, LEGO’s attempts to create their own video game were unsuccessful, making this crossover even more valuable.

Sebastian (known online as Wabbabrick), the creator of the pack, likely spent several hours creating all the textures. Since then, a team has been created to continue developing the pack. Their goal is to make Minecraft blocks resemble real LEGO® as closely as possible. They have done an excellent job of creating the world of Minecraft using tiny LEGO bricks, which gives the graphic a fresh, new look. The pack comes in various resolutions, ranging from 64x to 1024x, allowing players to choose the level of detail that suits their hardware, from lower-end systems to high-end gaming rigs.

The team has dubbed the new Minecraft blocks “Brixel” because they are cubes made up of many small 3D elements. The level of detail is impressive, with different layers on each block creating depth and relief texture. The complex geometry of the tiny bricks is simulated using Parallax Occlusion Mapping, enabling the game to render the bricks realistically without significantly impacting performance. The pack is designed to work seamlessly with the BSL shaders, which offer stunning 3D blocks and realistic lighting. All textures are handcrafted, not created automatically by computer programs, which is pretty cool but time-consuming.

Furthermore, the Brixel texture pack also includes an audio pack, albeit with limited sounds. The bricks produce rattling and clicking sounds when placed, hit, and destroyed, enhancing the game’s LEGO-like feel. Even footsteps have their own sounds, making players feel like they are really walking in a world made of tiny bricks.

Performance Settings

It’s worth noting that the Brixel texture pack is optimized for FPS. However, if you have a poor setup or incorrect Minecraft settings, lag can still occur due to the above-average block and item resolution. When combined with shaders, even high-end graphics cards (GPUs) can struggle to run the game smoothly. The main developer uses a laptop with an i7-9750H and GTX 1660 Ti. He achieves 40 FPS with SEUS PTGI and 70 FPS with BSL using this hardware. It’s also possible to combine another shader with BSL that doesn’t include ray tracing, resulting in increased FPS while using the Brixel resource pack in Minecraft. We recommend trying this option.

We recommend checking your options to make sure that “parallax occlusion mapping” and “advanced textures” are enabled in the BSL settings. In addition, the “parallax resolution” value should match the pack resolution if using SEUS, and anisotropic filtering must also be enabled.

If you’re experiencing performance issues, here are some additional tips for optimizing your settings:

  • Reduce render distance in-game (options -> video settings)
  • Allocate more RAM to Minecraft
  • Set the frame rate to unlimited in Minecraft (options -> video settings)
  • Use a lower resolution of the resource pack

Video & Screenshots

The 512x resolution is used in video trailers and screenshots. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the pack is only available as a trial version for free. To access all resolutions and textures, you’ll need to purchase the full version on Patreon. We strongly advise against using a cracked version of the pack, as it is illegal and doesn’t support the development team in any way.

If you’re looking for a free alternative, we recommend the MineBricks texture pack. This pack can be downloaded as a full version for free and is quite similar to the Brixel pack in terms of quality. Both packs are excellent options and are in no way inferior to each other.

How To Install Brixel Texture Pack

Check out the easy steps to install everything with just a few clicks.
  1. Begin by deciding whether to obtain Brixel for free or to support the creator on Patreon. Proceed with your chosen option:

    a) The author regularly releases a new free trial version. This version can be easily downloaded with a single click from our download section.

    b) For more comprehensive updates, visit the official Patreon page. You must subscribe to a paid plan to gain full access to all content. Navigate to the most recent post to download the necessary files.

  2. Following this, the procedure remains the same. Install Minecraft from its official website. Running the game at least once is essential to ensure all necessary file paths are established for this tutorial.
  3. Download the latest version of OptiFine, which is required to utilize all features within the game.
  4. Choose between the BSL shaders or the SEUS PTGI shaders. A shader pack is necessary to render standard blocks in 3D through parallax mapping, as handling the textures directly would be too demanding for any PC.
  5. Open the Brixel ZIP folder downloaded in the first step. Look for a file named “Brixel 1024x PTGI – place this and run in your .minecraft folder.exe” or a similarly named file if you've chosen a different resolution or version.
  6. Transfer the EXE file to your Minecraft folder, typically located at “C:\User\AppData\Roaming.minecraft”. Execute the file by double-clicking it to install the Brixel texture pack. A prompt will appear asking whether to overwrite existing files; select “Yes to all” to ensure Brixel functions correctly by replacing your current OptiFine and shader settings.
  7. Launch Minecraft.
  8. Click "Options" on the main menu.
  9. In the options, go to the submenu “Resource Packs”.
  10. Click "Open Pack Folder" at the bottom left to see a folder titled "resourcepacks".
  11. Put the downloaded ZIP file into your "resourcepacks" folder. Or, just drag and drop it into the Minecraft window to add the pack.
  12. You will see the pack on the left side of the resource pack selection menu.
  13. Hover over the pack thumbnail and click the arrow pointing right.
    If the game says the pack is for a newer or older Minecraft version when you activate it, don't worry! It's just a heads-up. Click 'Yes' and enjoy the new textures – it won't affect your gameplay.
  14. Click "Done" and all assets have been loaded.

FAQ

Why are there two versions of Brixel?

Each version supports a different shader. SEUS PTGI and BSL shaders are built differently, so the textures are tweaked for each pack version. The SEUS version is more resource-demanding for the PC, while the BSL version is more performance-friendly. Both shaders are available for free to download.

I’m having performance issues, what can I do?

Texturing more blocks involves that so-called “texture atlas” that Minecraft uses for loading textures to go to a higher resolution. This results in some FPS drop, which may be noticeable with the 1024x versions. This is pretty much standard and unavoidable for all resource packs, but the Wannabrick team will be working on a solution that will make Brixel run smoother.

  2. I can’t believe I spent almost 30 minutes trying to figure this out, just to discover that it costs 12 f*king dollars a MONTH, for a TEXTURE PACK.
