Patrix Texture Pack 1.21 → 1.20, 1.20.6

Author Patrix

Today, we will present the Patrix texture pack, which is perhaps the best realistic pack available. To begin with, there are four different resolutions available, but it is recommended that you choose the best version with 256 pixels only if you have a supercomputer, as it requires a lot of RAM/VRAM to handle it. The pack’s file size is quite large, with over 1GB, because Patrix textures are significantly heavier than other packs with the same resolution. It’s best to start with the lowest version, test the FPS you get in Minecraft, and then gradually work your way up. Your game may not run smoothly with the highest version, but that’s not uncommon with these textures, as most players experience lags.

One major difference between Patrix and other realistic texture packs is that almost every block and item is included. We were amazed to see so many textures featured in the Patrix texture pack. Also, many of the blocks are connected to each other, thanks to OptiFine. Another noteworthy feature is that a single block can have several different textures, which gives your environment a constantly changing look and makes the gaming experience more exciting.

The creator recommends using the SEUS PTGI shader, but you can use any shader if you don’t necessarily need ray-tracing graphics. SEUS is only suitable for high-end graphics cards, so you should look for an alternative on our website instead.

Patrix HD reminds us a bit of NAPP, which you can also download for free from our website. Both packs try to make Minecraft look like a next-gen game. For example, the leaves have a lot of details now and are rendered with a 3D effect. Additionally, the leaves adapt to the biomes and change color accordingly. To be honest, it’s rarely been so much fun to push your computer to its performance limit.


The project consists of several files, which you can download via MediaFire or Patreon. We list here the best features of the most important files that can be installed together with the required basic pack that adds all essential block textures/models. In almost every pack is a text file that lists all features in detail. It also tells you how to disable an unwanted feature. Furthermore, you can download the “” file from the MediaFire folder, which overwrites parts of the SEUS PTGI shader.

By the way, the Patrix pack also features custom mob animation by FreshLX that adds additional tweaks to fit the models better. He is the creator of the Fresh Animations texture pack and is a real expert in Minecraft mob animations.

Patrix Add-ons

Most of the following features are stored in “assets\minecraft\optifine\ctm\patrix” folder.

  • Block border transition overlay textures for over 15 blocks.
  • Glowing ores for normal or deepslate redstone/emerald/diamond ores.
  • Connected chiseled blocks.
  • Dirt blocks are dried mud in any desert, badlands, or savanna biome.
  • Egyptian hieroglyphs are displayed on chiseled sandstone in the desert biome.
  • Metal framing is added to any stained glass.

Check the included “features list” text file inside the Patrix add-on pack to see all features.

Patrix Bonus

Most of the following features are stored in the “assets\minecraft\optifine\ctm\patrix” folder.

  • Random textures of gray concrete block that vary depending on the world seed and x, y, z location. It includes asphalt pavement, road manhole covers, potholes, and patches, which give Minecraft a more authentic feel.
  • Gray concrete dust blocks in savanna or birch forest biomes feature yellow road lines. You can create highways with these blocks.
  • Realistic bedrock blocks in any overworld biomes above y=5, which connect to all concrete and stone blocks.
  • Black wool or carpet in any biomes other than the end or void type biomes feature sci-fi screens. This adds a futuristic touch to Minecraft. In addition, purpur blocks display bone piles and stone brick slabs/stairs/walls display white ceramic tiles in the same biomes.
  • Red nether bricks feature roof tiles in any biomes other than nether.
  • Birch slabs, stairs, and pressure plates in any non-birch biomes feature thatch.
  • New Tudor-style timber frame, giving Minecraft a more classical and historic feel.
  • A double oak slab can be used as potion shelves and petrified oak slabs can be used as food baskets. Both features work without installing a furniture mod.
  • Dry sea pickles, 1-3 of which can be used as tankards, and the fourth is a bowl of random food.
  • Dry dead horn coral fan in any non-ocean biomes that can be used as a nest.
  • Any powered doors are three blocks tall.

Patrix Models

The Patrix models pack comes with several unique features. It’s recommended to disable smooth lighting in the options. To remove the following features, delete the .json files located in “assets\minecraft\blockstates” folder in this pack. These features are included:

  • Stalactite models for stone, andesite, diorite, granite, and netherrack blocks.
  • Corpse piles on top of nether quartz ore blocks.
  • 3D crystals for redstone, emerald, and diamond ore/deepslate ore blocks.
  • Random quarter pillars for small basalt blocks.
  • Extra grass on top of grass blocks, as well as hanging grass from the sides.
  • Bushy leaves for birch and jungle trees.
  • Various farm crops will have some height variation.
  • Short hanging roots below grass, podzol, and rooted dirt block.
  • Random roots below lilypads.

Negative Facts

Thus far, only the positive aspects have been mentioned. However, as is often the case in life, there are also negative points to consider. It should not go unmentioned that only the 32x version is available for free. To access the 256x, 128x, and 64x resolutions, you must subscribe to Patrix on Patreon. Nonetheless, the cheapest subscription will suffice, and you can cancel it immediately after the download. You will not receive a refund, but the cancellation will prevent you from being charged every month. Essentially, this is the only downside, as we have only noted positive aspects about the Patrix resource pack.

In conclusion, the Patrix texture pack is certainly worth downloading if you are seeking a high-quality game add-on. However, if you do decide to get a shader pack, you must exercise caution, as you will need a powerful PC, or else your game will crash. Ultimately, you must decide whether to spend money on this or opt for a free alternative like the LB Photo Realism texture pack. We suggest trying out the free 32x edition first.

Video & Screenshots

The majority of the textures in the Patrix HD pack have a similar color to those in the Vanilla default pack, so your buildings will not look drastically different when using this resource pack. Additionally, it should be noted that many of the textures displayed in the screenshots were sourced from stock photo websites. Patrix obtained these images and modified them so that you can use them in Minecraft.

  1. This is going to sound like a very stupid question. How do I enable the content texture for the blocks? There are a handful of blocks (including the basic grass lol) which don’t appear very well with their surroundings because of the “enable content texture” phrase on the top.

    • I had the same issue, some mods i had tempered with the texture pack so i treid deleting some mods and eventually it worked

  2. I have 4 zip files ready to do something, but I do not know where in the game program to drop them into. Sorry, I’m just used to Executible jar files and a folder to just drop them into. I have java version if that matters.

    Thanks for your help.

  3. I have a problem with this texture pack that makes textures sometimes show some of their sides as the normal Minecraft texture and the texture pack is not on top of the normal Minecraft one, Is this a glitch? I made a test tower for it and saw it’s on multiple ores and some normal blocks.

    • you might have the texture pack on the top of your resource pack list, if you do then there is an arrow and put it below the normal Minecraft one

  4. I can’t get it to be compatible. 1.19.3 is the latest version of the game does it not work with this? literally no help anywhere on the internet for the best texture pack. Why is it not compatible but recognizing the pack? Do I need the iris shader to go with it in order for it to run? none of these things are mentioned in any tutorials anywhere on youtube yet people get it to run immediately and it’s so stupid.

    • The pack_format has changed in Minecraft 1.19.3. The creator of Patrix has not updated this yet, which is why an error message appears. You can still activate the pack, but some textures will be missing because the project is WIP.

      • But a lot of mods are not compatible with OptiFine, it would be nice if Patrix was compatible with Iris, right now I don’t have to add any mods in order to play Patrix properly, I don’t have the energy to find Op-compatible mods

        • The problem is that OptiFine has features like connected textures and Iris is just a shaders mod. You can try to find connected textures, alternate blocks, natural textures, and smart animations mods for Fabric or Forge, but I don’t know if it will work with Patrix. This is why I recommended playing Patrix with OptiFine.

  5. And how do you download the stuff? can’t you just add a button where it says download? please i have no idea how to do that.

    • You can find all information in this article. The download links can be found in our download section. Read our installation guide if you need help.

  6. i cant downald this. When I want to download it, something like this pops up:
    Insufficient Bandwidth
    The user you are downloading from has run out of bandwidth or does not have a premium account.

    As a premium account holder, you can bulk download the files using your own bandwidth. However, you do not currently have enough bandwidth in your account to perform this action.

  7. I am using this texture pack (32×32) with Sildurs Vibrant shaders and in the distance when I’m in caves there’s a sort of orange sparkle on blocks that looks like glitching textures. I am not really sure how else to describe it, if I can add a screenshot somewhere I can show, but it’s really annoying and I don’t know how to fix it

  8. hi . i have problem with resolution of patrix . its very bad resolution i can see the pixels of any block .i have SEUS RENEWED SHADER

  9. I have a slight problem, I can’t download it because I don’t have mediafire premium. It would be possible to put a link to other download sites if it’s not complicated ^^’
    thank you good day to you

  10. Good Morning! If it’s not too much trouble, could you tell me the shaders you used with the package to make the texture even more realistic, please?

  11. do i need to download shaders to fix texture problems? i cant since my pc is a low end pc and will probably explode

  12. on the grass, it says “wrong setting bruh” please tell me what settings i need to turn on and where to find them

  13. Damn. Better than shaders. Im not kidding, the best texture pack ive seen in my 8 years of playing Minecraft.
