The Sphax PureBDcraft texture pack 1.18 → 1.17 is rated five out of five stars in the Minecraft Marketplace, which is the first indication that you can expect excellent textures. It is also one of the most downloaded resource packs across all platforms. There are reasons for its high popularity, because the pack is available for both the Java Edition and the Bedrock Edition. This gives every Minecraft player the chance to play with it. On top of that, many YouTubers have often played with it in their videos. Fans also wanted to download PureBDcraft as a result, because they saw how great the textures are.
The first thing you see after the installation is the main menu and there you can directly discover the first cool changes to the user interface. The font and the buttons have been changed. In addition, the background image has been replaced and now looks much better. Also, the loading screen has been customized. You’ll quickly notice that the entire look of the game has been redesigned.
Besides, it will be interesting for you to know that everything strongly resembles a cartoon. You’ll surely appreciate this style, since it will make the animals around you look much nicer and even hostile mobs won’t seem scary. Some of them have a random look.
Each block has been created with great attention to detail and all the blocks together make a great overall look. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide whether you prefer average or high-resolution textures. Fortunately, PureBDcraft is available in any resolution, as you can see in the info box at the top.
Overall, there is a huge jump in quality between the lowest and highest versions. The 128x package acts as a good reference point, as it’s in the middle and is best suited for most computers. If you find that your PC is too poor and you are getting lags, try a lower resolution. If you get a lot of FPS you can do the opposite and choose a higher resolution.
Moreover, the texture pack is downloadable for every Minecraft version, because the development already started at MC-Beta 1.6. To give you an idea how long ago that was, back then the Nether became playable for multiplayer for the first time. Accordingly, it can be said that Sphax has been working on PureBDcraft since the beginning of 2011. A lot of time has passed since then, but still every texture of an update is always replaced by a new one by Sphax. Consequently, you won’t find placeholder textures anywhere in your environment, because everything is 100% complete.

1. First, you must accept the cookies when you enter the BDcraft website. You’ve probably seen this popup before on other sites. Either click on “Accept” directly or on “Advanced settings” to get to the privacy dashboard.
2. The second step is to scroll down the page a bit. There you select a game version (e.g. 1.16) and a resolution (e.g. 512x) under the subheading “Download”. However, the best resolution only works with Nvidia 10 Series or a better graphics card, because there are technical limitations. Intel and AMD users unfortunately cannot use 512x. At this point you can also view the full change log, which lists the latest updates.
3. Once you have made your selection you can click on “Download” to download the Sphax PureBDcraft texture pack. Now you will see a popup with two options. We recommend you to choose “Download with AD”, because this way you don’t have to spend any money. Alternatively, you can sign up for a paid membership.
5. Now you need to watch 15 seconds of advertisements on the page. After that, the message “Your download is ready” will appear at the top. The length of the download process that starts now depends on how good your internet connection is and what resolution you have chosen.
6. Next, open Minecraft and navigate to “Options” and then to “Resource Packs”.
7. Then click on “Open resource packs folder”. Move the downloaded zip file to your resource packs folder, which you normally don’t need to unzip.
8. Return to Minecraft and click on the pack to activate it.
9. Finally, click on “Done” and the installation is complete. Wait until the game has loaded the new textures.
Sometimes it can happen that Minecraft crashes and cannot be opened anymore when loading the textures. This is probably because your hardware is too bad. In this case, you should allocate more RAM to Minecraft and think about choosing a lower resolution.
