Visible Ores Texture Pack 1.20, 1.20.6 → 1.19, 1.19.4

Author Techy69

The great thing about the Visible Ores texture pack for Minecraft is that it is allowed on all public servers. However, read the server rules carefully if you are unsure. It will help you find diamonds, ancient debris, and all other minerals. Compared to X-Ray, it is a legal alternative that is very popular among players. Although you don’t get X-Ray vision, the addon is still a great help in caves and the Nether. The same goes for SkyWars, where you also have to mine ores. It is essential in this PVP mode that you get your armor and weapons together as quickly as possible. Therefore, it is recommended to install Visible Ores if you don’t want to waste time in the future. It’s even compatible with mods, such as Immersive Engineering.

Furthermore, you can play this Minecraft texture pack with all editions. Accordingly, it doesn’t matter if you have a powerful computer or a small mobile phone. The PC version is a bit better because the ores glow when you use a shader. Also, some of them have pulsating animations. You’ll see them even better and they look significantly better. Anyway, this is only optional and the Visible Ores texture pack works fine without any other programs. In addition, it is also a perfect add-on, because it just outlines the ore blocks. So you can play it together with other packs that include all textures.

Overall, the Visible Ores texture pack is a really great help for Minecraft players. There are many people who suffer from visual impairment and rely on such add-ons. By the way, this topic is more important than you might think, which is why we also showcased Faithless. This project is especially for users with color blindness.

Video & Screenshots

This before and after screenshot clearly shows the differences from vanilla Minecraft. Move the slider to compare the details even better. The rest of the screenshots were created with the BSL shader. The creator recommends BSL for Java Edition players because it supports the LabPBR version. This feature allows each block to have its own block light.

  1. Coal does not highlight or glow even with BSL shaders. I haven’t tested any of the other ores yet besides copper which does highlight/glow is there a fix for this??

  2. I’m really disappointed with the pack I received. I have only two FPS, which felt akin to a PowerPoint presentation. Unfortunately, it didn’t meet my expectations at all.

    • You might want to consider upgrading your hardware, as this is essentially a default pack that modifies only ore blocks. If the issue lies with the shaders, then it’s likely your graphics card isn’t powerful enough to handle them.

  3. Resource pack works for the most part. Only thing I’m trying to get sorted is the glowing effect. Does anyone have any shader pack recommendations to fix this? Playing on bedrock windows 10 edition. Saw BSL in another thread, checked it out and it’s unfortunately not compatible with W10, which is why I’m looking for an alternative. Thanks!

  4. Hi.

    I just downloaded the packs and followed all the steps.

    But… I play on Bedrock (on the pc) with my girlfriend (playstation). But.. step 4 isn’t in my screen/video’s settings.
    ”Enable glowing textures there. Also, select “fancy” or “fast” for connected textures. It’s best to choose the latter if you use a bad graphics card.”

    I can’t.. How? Please help! The pack is so cool!

    • okay u play on Bedrock Edition which has its own pack if u are using the pack u downloaded form the link under the heading “Bedrock Edition, Minecraft PE and MCPE:” u just have to double click it (the file should me ‘.mcpack’ ) it will open minecraft itself and start installing automayically…. now u just have to open you resource pack option in the settings and apply the pack

      boom its done

  5. gold ore, ancient debris, nether quartz ore and deepslate variants do not have highlights. Was looking to see if there is a fix for this. I play on Minecraft bedrock on my laptop. Thanks!

  6. I keep getting “OpenGL error 1282 Invalid Operation” when using this texture pack. I use Lunar client with Optifine 1.20.1. Any known fixes? I have tried updating my Java and GPU. Also manually added a DLL to Javas’ bin file.

  7. pack is really cool but it doesn’t recognize the same ores if they are in deepslate style :/

  8. When I put in the texture pack the floor glitches and I can see through it and it also happens when I’m mining.
    Any solutions?

  9. Works great im using BSL shaders and it looks great aswell, but i cant seem to get the LabPBR block light thing to work any help?

  10. Hi, I have installed the texture pack and I have watched the video, but this one doesn’t work. What can I do in this situation?

  11. The Ancient Debris does not glow in the dark then used with the Faithless Texture Pack tho can someone help me ?
