Nostalgia-Craft Alpha PE [16×16]

This texture pack aims to recreate the design which existed back in the alpha version of Minecraft. It’s a much brighter theme of colors and also sounds have been replaced with the old ones. Perhaps some of you want to experience how Minecraft looked like in the early days. This pack will take you on a nostalgic trip back to the year of 2010.

Creator: 2XMM2 (original PC pack)
Ported by: MasterlazorX, Twitter Account
Updated: 26 November, 2018 (read changelog)

The texture pack makes the world look much more brighter than what it looks like with the default Minecraft PE texture pack which exists for the latest Minecraft version.

It’s recommended to turn off Smooth Lighting for maximum effect.

Minecraft Alpha:

Minecraft Today:


  • Water color is more consistent in some biomes now.
  • Underwater fog color now looks older with darker blue.
  • Skeletons no longer use a death sound, they use a hurt sound instead when they die.
  • Fixed explosion pitch when lightning strikes nearby.
  • Fixed paintings.
  • Old lava sound and amplified it.
  • Removed tips in the loading screen (I intended to leave this in but some of the words didn\’t fit on some devices)
  • Fixed a slight issue with a text.

Note from MasterlazorX: It’s recommended to please restart the game after selecting the pack for all the textures and features to load!


Important: It’s looks best with Smooth Lighting OFF!

  2. NotchedOut says:

    The colors aren’t really true to the alpha, and that is disappointing. Big time.

  3. MCPE Playa says:

    Try adding the old door soundso to the doors, chest, and basically anything that makes a door sound

  4. . says:

  5. DudeBrosYT says:

  6. Bacon_Mc says:

    • BubbleBoy67 says:

      Yes!! Please!! It’s a pain in the neck not being able to download this on iOS ’cause I have a I Pad mini 2 and the pack always says when I open up Minecraft, Failed To Import! So please fix that!

  7. SadIOSUserz says:

  8. megadestroyer says:

  9. Lexy says:

    Is the slow loading normal

  10. StormzYT says:

    Hey, ever since I downloaded this pack, my game has kept on crashing when I go to open minecraft.

    • J says:

      The only way to fix that is to re-install Minecraft, don’t download things that are laggy. It causes your Minecraft to crash.

    • kirito says:

      it would happen to me but to answer your question try to delete texture packs shaders anything that makes your minecraft laggy

    You Need Emeralds to rubys

  13. Corey says:

    It isn’t working. Keeps the n saying failed to import

  14. Brandon says:

    I really want to be able to play the “alpha” version of minecraft again. But everytime I try to download the .McPack, minecraft says the the manifest validation is not “correct”. Anyway to fix this so us players can enjoy the older version of minecraft?

    • JJ says:

      I think it’s saying that because maybe it got mixed up in the Jason files of it being a behaviour pack when it’s supposed to be a resource pack. Hopefully they’ll fix it soon.

  15. FFlover17 says:

    This is amazing! Could you add the blue rose?.. I love this pack!

    • superspider3500 says:

      The blue rose is the cyan flower, and it was added to ONLY pocket edition, and was removed the version right after the one which had it.

  16. LucasGamer says:

    Ugh. Color name for pack not allowing to import.

  17. SkyOfMeow says:

    When I install this on mcpack (I haven’t tested the ZIP yet) it says unable to find pack manifest.

  18. OutcastCosine25 says:

    Pls add manifest 🙁

  19. BubbleBoy67 says:

    Failed to import, failed to import, this is all I get when I to download it on iOS!! PLEASE FIX THAT!! I really & desperately want this resource pack! It’s my dream to play the alpha versions of Minecraft!!

  20. Johnnygrubius96 says:

    I am using a iPad and I can not import it.

  21. The ocd Guy says:

    It says it can’t find manifest editor answer right now

  22. HaiImJustDatGamer says:

    Ask the owner to put in a manifest. Pls Mr. Editor

  23. Sparker Night says:

    It says failed to import. I’m an ios user. Can you please fix it?

  24. Ethan says:

    It failed to import on my Minecraft! It says that it can not find the pack manifest. Please fix! I really want to play with the old graphics and sound! Also, would you please create a behavior pack so we can experience what creepers were like in the survival test version?

    • Ethan says:

      Also, the zip file download does not work on iOS. Please fix! I have Documents 5.

      • Ethan says:

        Found out how to fix it. I copied and pasted a vanilla resource pack manifest and named it and also changed a few numbers in the pack id. I used Documents, so being an iOS user was no problem. Please add the old mob textures, because I want to experience the old spider and creeper.

    • superspider3500 says:

      The survival test was before alpha, and I saw alpha creepers acted like they do today.

  25. George says:

    Make a Bugatti Addon plssssss

  26. Voicemail says:


  27. Timmy says:

    Yes, this finally worked. I love how this makes things brighter. The grass and trees are very bright and beautiful. I just love the bright look the Alpha style gives the world

  28. Anonymous says:

    I think there is a bug with this pack because the door sound is played whenever a person opens a chest

  29. Anonymous says:

    There is a bug that when a person opens the chest the door noise plays

  30. Anonymous says:

    Is it a bug that the door sound plays when I open a chest?

  31. Overblox says:

    New virsons make the game stupid and less colorful!

  32. Reporter says:

    On the Minecrafforum when i downloaded the mcpe texture pack, it has the versin 1.6 which has the classic title screen ui, but in here its 1.5 and none of that is here

  33. Sean says:

    All we need now is a behavior pack that disables new items/blocks like prismarine and an original mc world generator from the alpha

  34. Zach says:

    It’s good it’s the old look

  35. Europaeus says:

    These colors aren’t accurate at all.

  36. TTD94 says:

    I never saw the good old days but this pack must have been it!

  37. HaiImJustDatGamer says:

    Yes I can now play with the old sounds :3

  38. GMScrafter says:

    You should change the lava texture too!

  39. ROM2k4 says:

    This pack makes me remember everything I made in alpha

  40. CMAN says:

    Let’s go on a journey, a journey throughout time, the time that’s changing all the time, it’s time to go to time!

    Perfect nostalgia. Almost all common textures have been reverted to their Alpha versions, and it makes you feel like you’ve truely gone back in time.

  41. Damariobros says:

    Rename the Sugar Canes to “Reeds” like they were in Minecraft Alpha!

  42. AdvDreemurrFr says:

    The background is…not like old versions…. they’re not all old sounds, and a lot of things are missings :/ but it’s…okay… 3/5

  43. FireBoy says:

    The lava is missing its BETA texture but ther that that 20/10

  44. FireBoy says:

    Oh yeah is it possible to make the lighting and the sky like it used to be???

  45. superspider3500 says:

    Here’s something more if you want even more nostalgia: Brightness=0 Smooth Lighting=Off No other resource or behavior packs in the world or Global Resources

  46. superspider3500 says:

    Why did you remove all of the snout? Alpha pigs did have snouts, but they weren’t 3D. So can you add only the texture back in?

  52. Joey says:

    “Have you ever felt the feeling, that you ar being blinded and wants to puke in a Ramen Bowl? Have you felt that you will have night mares from the cancerous colors? Then download this Big-Time Pack. You will feel my endless suffering looking at the Alpha textures of minecraft.” ~ Morgan “Not”FreeMan.

  53. Anonymous says:

    it needs a behavior pack to make it realy like alpha or beta.

  54. xXsheepgamertvXx says:

    It makes me wanna play it even more

  55. Minecraft jesse says:

    Cool texture pack I liked the old shade of green they used

  56. TheMinecraftPlayer says:

    This is just a TEXTURE pack.

  57. Presented says:

    The pack is awesome, but since the update of 1.2 I turned it on and the texture packs menu does not work. It shows the normal texture pack and none of my installed ones. I can’t turn it off neither turn on and off other packs. I downloaded it before the 1.2 update. Please help.

    • TTD94 says:

      If you can somehow crash MC it will reset the global resources. Same thing happened to me but it’s fixed now on the delete pack addon

  58. ilikcheese says:


  59. DaDerpLord says:

    This is great! But, it would be better with the old running animation. ;-; I understand this is only a resource pack, so, oh well.

  60. ExoWolf says:

    The only texture i loved in the alpha version of mc is the wster texture. It was VERY beautyfull.

  61. sjk210 says:

    Bring back the beta textures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  62. AlphaBeta1V2 says:

    Tried it, Awesome

  63. jgreenmachine76 says:

    Update it for 1.4

  64. Rodvin Aragon says:

    Love the texture Pack But there’s one Problem in the Aquatic Update the Water is kind of bugged out, It show a un textured water but every thing else is good pls fix

  65. Dorami says:

    I like cats

  66. Rug05 says:

    When i tried to extract the file it said it was a bad zip file (i was using android) i probably messed something up lol

  67. KHM9 says:

    Some suggestion.
    Make the chest look like its more attached together and change the sand to the old scratchy and patchy one.

  68. Skalomanno says:

    The cauldrons is update blocks. The water in them too

  69. LakAmar says:

    This is a great addon! Honestly! But i think you should make the Sugar canes lighter like they were back then and for Touch users to make the classic (non pixel) Dpad? I know it wasn’t in alpha Minecraft but still!

  70. Stefan25897 says:

    I’ve noticed a glitch within the texture pack that exists for a very long time and it really bugs me. Item Frames are invisible when placed. I hope that it’s fixed cuz it really bugs me. Great pack btw

  71. Anonymous says:

    Ever since the aquatic update, I’ve noticed that the water is darker and the grass is darker than what it shows in the image

    Pigs have no nose

  73. HirwrC says:

    Wooohooo!!! My minecraft finally stopped lagging with this pack. Thank you very much!

  74. MCPE Gaming says:

    This addon is great!

  75. AidenDoesStream says:

    Is the menu backround the old one?

  76. ender-fan says:

    I want this

  77. Zenjo.oh_Sama says:

    Someone should create a 32×32 version of this. Even tho I didn’t play Minecraft when these textures are around.

  78. Evan says:

    What happened to the Zip file, Somehow I can’t see it on here

  79. I got a question how do you make tips in the loading screen change? Because im a resource pack creator to! But I can’t figure that out.

  80. CrazyCritic89 says:

    I just wanted to report something, the cooked porkchop and cooked beef have one extra pixel on them.
