Faithful 256×256 Texture Pack 1.20, 1.20.6 → 1.19.4

Author Gealx3

The use of extremely realistic textures in Minecraft has been theoretically possible for a long time. However, not everyone prefers this style. Today, we introduce you to the Faithful 256×256 texture pack, which strikes a good compromise between traditional and realistic textures. You may already be familiar with the popular Faithful 32x pack, as it has set the trend for such packs. However, the Faithful 256x pack offers an even higher resolution, making it a recommended choice.

Gealx3, the creator of the Faithful 256x pack, has completely redesigned every single block using Paint.NET, and the attention to detail is awe-inspiring. When you zoom into any random block, you will be amazed by the level of detail. It’s worth noting that despite the major overhaul, the classic Minecraft vanilla style has been retained so that you won’t find any strangely-looking blocks or items in your world.

The advantages of using the Faithful 256×256 resource pack outweigh the disadvantages. One of the biggest benefits is that it’s free, making it downloadable to everyone. Additionally, you will immediately recognize every item, as the textures are similar to the standard default pack but with a much higher resolution. Now, let’s discuss the disadvantages. Honestly, it’s quite challenging to identify any weaknesses due to the excellent work put into the pack. After careful consideration, one potential drawback is that such high-quality blocks and items require substantial computing power, which may not be available on every computer. If you already experience low FPS without the pack, you may need to assess whether your PC is capable of handling the Faithful 256x pack. However, this does not only involves gamer who plays the Java Edition, because the project also works on Apple or Android smartphones and tablets.

  1. Could you fix the texture when mining a block? On my phone when I’m mining a block it looks black… in the ps4 am certain blocks look black, I really look this texture but that’s the only downside:(
