A great feature of New Default+ Texture Pack is that the pack is updated every month. Accordingly, there are no bugs or lags at all, since all graphics are constantly being developed. The name of a Minecraft Texture Pack is very important, because if it has the wrong title, nobody will download it. In this case the name is very well chosen.
Above all, the basic idea is that all textures are cleverly mixed together. So some of the blocks reminds you of the normal default, but everything looks a bit less angular and the colors are more vibrant. Enchanted books have an adapted look, depending on the type of enchantment. Other items are also completely new and shiny. Furthermore a small highlight is included. If you use a sword, the blade will become dull and will gradually lose its durability.
With the title New Default, you already have a little taste of what to expect. Namely improved vanilla textures from Minecraft, which have been brought to a whole new level by SeaOfPixels. At the moment the blocks and items of the Nether Update are the most interesting ones for you, because they have never existed in this form before. After adding bees in the last major update, new logs of the Netherwart trees are now included.
There are also two much more significant changes, as there are also two new biomes to discover. Until now, the Nether with the New Default Texture Pack was a dark area with endless fortresses and lava rivers. With the Nether update, the infernal dimension of Minecraft is enhanced with the landscapes of Soulsand Valley and Netherwart Forest. In the first of these, you’ll find the eponymous Soulsand, which will make you and other players slow down and sink in. Netherwart, on the other hand, will be found in the other new biome mainly for you.
These are certainly the biggest focus of the community when it comes to new Texture Packs. For this reason it is very gratifying that New Default is still being worked on regularly. As an example we can mention the new Netherite armor and various items of this material. They are already included in the current Nether Update, which means SeaOfPixels is already one step ahead of the competition.
Basically, any Texture Pack can be used to play in Minecraft PvP battles, but some are better suited than others. Meanwhile a specially developed PvP addon has been released. Among other things, the add-on especially marks diamonds or Netherite. With OptiFine they even shine a little bit additionally. In our opinion, New Default+ is an all-round carefree package.
