Despite being the mobile version of the game, Minecraft: Pocket Edition is still full of customization and opportunities for creativity. You can do just about everything you can in the versions on PC or console. This is true for texture packs as well, which you can easily install in your game to change the way things in the game appear.
These texture packs can make things more realistic or do the exact opposite. Here is a compilation of some of the best texture packs you can find for Minecraft: Pocket Edition.
If realistic graphics are not your thing, you can bring more color and fun to your world with this cartoon texture pack. The cartoony look of your Minecraft world will “pop” more to your eyes while keeping the grounded look of the game in tow. It’s like your Minecraft world, but with the colors changed and the brightness levels increased to make it look more vivid.
Crosshair Bundle Pack
As much as Minecraft lets you change the world around you and form the structures and buildings that look appealing to you, it does not allow you to change your crosshair. It’s always the same, and if you do not like it, you usually had to deal with it. But not anymore — this pack includes six new crosshairs you can choose from, allowing you to enjoy a different look compared to what you usually see when playing the game.
Defscape Texture Pack
This pack aims to improve the visuals on every block by upping the resolution of each one to 64×64. It causes them to look really clean and sharp, and yet they don’t lose that Minecraft charm. If you are looking for a texture pack that will make everything look better without losing that unique identity Minecraft has, give this pack a try. It looks even better when used in Medieval and Modern map types.
Even Cuter Vanilla Cats
If you love cats but feel Minecraft does not do enough to make them cute in the game, try this texture pack. The ears of the furry felines are more angled now to help them stand out more, and more breeds of cats are available. Minecraft’s blocky aesthetic prevents you from seeing the cats in a very realistic way, but the animals’ colors reflect their real-life appearances.
If you really want to add realism to your Minecraft experience, then FuseRealism will do just that. The ultra-high definition quality of this pack, with a resolution of 256×256, will make every block stand out in your world. Instead of going about your usual tasks in Minecraft, you will constantly be watching the environment and how much better it will pop out to you–like the lava pool in the photo above.
LB Photo Realism Reload
LB Photo Realism has been one of the most popular texture packs you can find in Minecraft. The Reloaded version brings back those realistic, beautiful textures to give Minecraft a better-looking world that attracts your eyes to everything around you. The leaves on trees and other plant life have so much more life to them while remaining typical Minecraft blocks. It’s like the 3D worlds found in other games but in blocky form.
If you’re looking for a great texture pack that can help you in PvP, then look no further than Groovy, a popular PvP-focused texture pack for Minecraft: Pocket Edition. This pack doesn’t change every texture in the game but makes a few interesting changes that will make your screen look good when in PvP. It can even help you gain an advantage against opponents in the game.
Bring Minecraft into the modern era with a texture pack that allows you to design a home as if you were right here in our world. It offers a lot of new surfaces like stained glass and comes with a new bed for you to use. Plus, it is in high-definition, so all the blocks look good without appearing out of place. It gives your Minecraft world a fresh, contemporary look without losing its adorable blockiness.
Night Vision Pack
If you are tired of crafting torches to see where you are going in mines, download this pack that makes all blocks in darkness give out light. It’s as if you are moving in well-lit environments: you can always see where you are going and know what dangers lay ahead. This texture pack is perfect for those who have problems going inside dark, creepy spaces.
Created to give the game a visual graphic overhaul, R3D CRAFT lets your Minecraft world pop with life as much as possible while still remaining made of blocks. You can also download shaders to help the lighting and water look much better as well. This makes your Minecraft world look more realistic than ever while retaining its same old charm.
