XRay Texture Pack 1.21 → 1.20, 1.20.6

Author Filmjolk

XRay texture pack has been the most popular Minecraft pack on the internet for years. For a beginner, this will sound strange, because it doesn’t add any new textures that make the gameplay more beautiful. Instead, you get x-ray vision. With this, you can see through all blocks. Simply put, your environment will be made invisible so that you can instantly spot important ores even from a great distance. From now on, no more annoying cave expeditions are necessary.

Originally, the XRay texture pack was developed because the creator didn’t want to waste his free time mining. In addition, he probably didn’t have much luck in it either, so he thought of a more efficient way. Nowadays, his project is known worldwide and has several million downloads on Curseforge. It is also the most popular in our community. So, the developer Filmjolk has been helping many Minecraft players find netherite, diamonds, iron, and other ore blocks for years.

XRay is so good that you can be on a mountain and still see diamonds in the underground. However, that’s not all, because the texture pack can be used in other Minecraft dimensions as well. We mean the Nether because this has also become extremely important. You’ll immediately discover ancient debris, which is needed for netherite. Accordingly, you’ll never have to go on a long search for ores again.

Furthermore, the “invisible” blocks have a border so that no accident can happen. After all, it would be very annoying if you farm hundreds of diamonds and netherite with the XRay texture pack and end up falling off a cliff. Also, you can still see water and lava. This is also for your safety. If a lava lake were invisible, you would be in great danger of falling into it. And we all know what would happen then.

There are many reasons for the huge popularity, as you have already read. But there are many more. The XRay texture pack is perfectly developed. The pack works very simply and you don’t have to be an expert. As a result, anyone can use it and get an advantage over their friends. You can perfectly troll your friends with the pack because they certainly don’t expect you to be so rich in Minecraft all of a sudden. Moreover, you’ll see directly when an enemy mob is approaching, because you’ll be able to see through all the walls. By the way, there is also an extra version for realms, because previously XRay was not compatible with this mode.

All in all, many points advocate an XRay texture pack download. Nevertheless, there are a few things to keep in mind. You are not allowed to play with it on most servers, because the rules forbid it. You can be banned for using it if someone reports you. That’s why you should check the server rules first. Fortunately, you have nothing to worry about in single-player mode or private servers, because there you can do whatever you want.

XRay Texture Pack Frequently Asked Questions and Problems

Please read the answers carefully.
Will server owners know that I am using this XRay?

No. That being said if you start mining a lot of ores and very little stone, they will get suspicious. Many plugins show all kinds of data based on how many blocks players mine and how much of each block they mine. You can find an xrayer who mines more ores than the average player very easily. If you deviate from the norm they will vanish teleport to you and check your cave pathing. When I used to run servers I had lots of people trying to circumvent this by acting as if they were strip mining and changing directions very conveniently to hit diamonds with their strip mines. But even if this doesn’t work, many plugins will show how off the probability charts you are even if you try to not mine diamonds directly. It is next to impossible to make your mining seem random enough to not get caught. Your best bet is that the server owners don’t have any anti-xray plugins. But no, they can never tell what resource pack you are using unless you are playing on some custom-modded Minecraft client that hands servers this information.

With which Minecraft Editions is the XRay texture pack compatible?

XRay is compatible with all Minecraft editions.

Is XRay for Minecraft free or do I have to pay for it?

Of course, everything is free of charge.

How can I turn the pack on and off in the game?

You have to go to the options and then to resource packs. There you can enable or disable it.

Can I use it with TLauncher?

Yes, you can. The installation is the same as for the official Java Edition. However, you should make sure that the launcher version and the pack version match.

Will it affect my FPS?

No, because the ZIP archive and .mcpack only require a little computing power. In addition, the included textures only have a resolution of 16×16. Just like in the default pack. You might even get a small FPS boost because your graphics card has to render much less.

Solutions To Problems

Although the installation and activation are very simple, there are occasional problems. That is why we have listed here the most common problems with XRay texture pack.
How to fix the fake ores on servers with X-Ray Ultimate?

The server is using an Anti Xray plugin which can alter block information sent to your device from the server. They decide what the world map you get looks like. Server devs add ores everywhere and you can’t see further than a few blocks under the ground. There is no way around this other than to hack their server and delete the anti-xray plugins. You could always try to get the world seed if it’s not a custom world and then work your way from there. But in all honesty, stop xraying on servers that don’t allow it.

What can I do if all blocks are dark and I can’t see anything?

There is a quick solution to this problem because you just have to turn off the smooth lighting. For the Java Edition and MCPE this should be enough, but for the Windows 10 Edition, you should also use a night vision potion. You can use this potion in the other editions as well. Optionally you can also install the mod Optifine.

Why do I get an error message when I try to install XRay in Minecraft?

It is an incompatibility message. It tells you that the pack is not compatible with your version of the game. However, this message is superfluous, because there will be no problem if you activate XRay anyway. Therefore, we advise you to simply ignore the error message.

Why don’t I see any dungeons in the XRay texture pack?

You are probably confusing it with the XRay mod, which has these and many more features. As the title says, this is just a texture pack. As a result, only the blocks can be made transparent and no dungeons are highlighted.

  1. Hello, I am using Minecraft Java Edition version 1.20.4.
    The blocks are transparent, but the problem is that they are very dark and I can’t recognize the ores, if I am more than 5 blocks away. I only see black spots and cannot distinguish the ores.
    Which setting would you recommend?

    • It seems like you’re using the pack on a server with anti-xray software. The plugin generates random ores to deter x-ray cheats, making it challenging to spot real ores with the texture pack.

  2. lmao i never knew OR (origin realms) was so popular there’s a specific x-ray texture pack for it on one of the most famous and used x-ray texture packs

  3. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong, but every time it’s active, all the ores are dark and look like coal. It’s almost impossible to tell what they are in the daylight

  4. can it be made to work in multiplayer? optifine is forcing me to use an older version, and it does not seem to work without optifine.

    • This X-Ray pack works with every ore, including ancient debris, which is the main source of netherite scraps.

  5. uhhh the problem about the error message… yeah right, you say to ignore it but how do you just simply ignore it? i’m getting errors saying “Unknown pack name” and “pack id 000000000000000” and last saying issue unable to manifest in pack

  6. is there a way to customize which blocks you can see and which not? I want to customize which blocks are displayed in-game. Is this possible or do I need the XRay mod?

  7. Why the bedrock version of dis pack doesnt have any outline on blocks like stone and andesite? Cuz i cant see where am i going

  8. Thanks for making this I joined a no rules server and I spawned in a rock and it is dark so I need X-ray to get out annnnddd find diamonds

  9. why dont i see any ancient debris , i do see other ores. or is it maybe because there is no ancient debris. anyways i dont see ancient debris but thanks anyway

  10. Is there a way to change the settings to be able to show some blocks that are currently being turned invisible? Like, for example if I’m hunting specifically for Diorite or Andesite for a task or build project, this texture pack hides them, which most of the time is fine, but this one time, I would like to be able to display a specific ore.

  11. I opened it and when i dragged the pack.mcmeta the selected part of select resource pack, it just said do you want to add the following packs to minecraft? and when i put yes, it said failed to copy packs. im playing on 1.17.1 btw, pls answer, also can it work on someone else’s realm?

  12. So when I use this texture pack, every single block of ore is randomized so I have no Idea what is what. This also happens for my friend when she uses it. Is this supposed to happen? I also play on java.

  13. I can’t see the outline of blocks I’m on 1.17 on Android but I can see the ores but it’s hard to navigate through caves

  14. hello could you give me a hand?
    I’m on mod the abyss minecraft 1.16.5
    the abyss blocks are not invisible, do you know anything I can add to make it work in that world?

    • This is a texture pack. It’s not a mod. Just use the resource pack to turn it on, and don’t use the pack if you want it off.

  15. How can I uninstall this? I don’t play bedrock anymore. I can’t find “X-Ray Bedrock” in my add or install options search bar.

  16. how does x-ray bedrock take to his mobile game i don’t know because i never did that i want an answer please
