F8thful Texture Pack 1.21 → 1.20, 1.20.6

Author Ewan Howell

As the name suggests, the F8thful texture pack takes a faithful approach to Minecraft textures, but with a twist – it comes in an 8x resolution. That means you’ll get an 8×8 Steve skin and an 8×8 Alex skin, giving your Minecraft world a distinctive style with a grainy look. Despite its lower resolution, the pack doesn’t compromise on quality. The textures remain visually appealing and consistent, even though they are simpler due to the reduced resolution. One of the notable features of this pack is that it avoids excessive pixelation, allowing Minecraft to display good 8×8 textures. Players appreciate the most that they didn’t have to adjust to a completely new graphic and can continue to play Vanilla Minecraft with a slightly different look.

By the way, the F8thful resource pack was first released on Feb 26, 2020, and was downloaded and installed by Minecraft players who prefer a minimalistic style. Ewan Howell, the creator of this project, has also worked on other well-received packs such as the PewDiePie texture pack and the Black and White texture pack, showcasing his creativity and skill in developing Minecraft related stuff with distinct themes. It’s worth keeping an eye on his releases to not miss any new mod that he may come up with in the future.

For mobile gamers, the MCPE F8thful texture pack is also available for the Minecraft Bedrock Edition. However, it’s worth noting that this version may not receive regular updates. Despite this, we think the standard default textures complemented the pack well, and missing blocks or items in Minecraft PE were not noticeable. On the other hand, the Java version is 100% complete.

In addition to the basic version of Faithful 8×8, you can get a LabPBR add-on for PCs. It was created by a fan but it is quite whimsical as PBR (physically based rendering) textures are typically associated with high-resolution packs. Enabling CTM (connected textures) for this PBR add-on ensures it works seamlessly with the base pack. You need also a LabPBR compatible shader like Kappa or Nostalgia.

  1. It’s been months and it’s only been updated for mc java? it’s a bit disappointing for such a good texture. But who cares, there’s nothing to do….

  2. I got max 10 fps full screen with this, its a boost for the 3 fps I had, i highly recommend it (+my pc is super laggy, so it will work for you)

    • Ya don’t need a new resource pack, you need a whole new pc pro like how can you even manage on 10fps, hats off. I can’t even tolerate less than 60 (mine is still low end)

  3. I would like f8thful bedrock edition. I am waiting for a long time for it to be released on iOS and Android platforms, I hope it comes soon 🙃

  4. Would love a 1.19 update for the bedrock edition file! I use pocket edition and I would really like to try this pack

    • You can use a java pack to bedrock pack converter and it will give you another zip file after converting then rename the .zip file to .mcpack and import it. It worked for me

    • We are sorry for this. Unfortunately, the creator Ewan Howell is currently updating his projects for PC only. There will be updates for Bedrock and Minecraft PE in the future, for sure. We do not have any further info on this.

      • I would like it to be updated for bedrock edition as it is more played and many players want the texture pack. I hope it will be released soon 🙃.

  5. How do I add this to minecraft bedrock edition on windows 10 I have downloaded it but it wont come up in my resource packs
