Improved Default Textures

Whenever you play Minecraft, do you feel like some of the textures just needed tweaking to make the experience better? This "Improved Default Textures" pack was created to make many of those textures better!

This is NOT AT ALL a complete texture over hall. This pack is used to make many block textures just that much better in order to improve builds and the overall experience! One way is added brick color variation and color, the other is improving  textures that don't really fit in with other blocks, and a few other miscellaneous changes to blocks have occurred as well.

One of the main purposes for created this pack was to remove the thick borders on the "smooth" or "polished" blocks. Other blocks like lapis, iron, GLASS, shroomlights, prismarine bricks, redstone, and cut sandstone slabs have also had their borders removed too! Recently tinted glass and polished deepslate have been added to this list too!

Smoother stone (stone like) textures have been added into the game, most recently smoother calcite and tuff. Variated ore textures have also been added (altered in 1.17 slightly (photo not updated), shaders not included). 

Even grass like blocks have had their textures updated too, where all 4 sides of the block look similar to the top (like optifine).

There are also a few more altered block textures as well that have not been covered. Not only that, but many items have had their textures altered, and currently a few entities. The end sky has also been given a nice starry background to replace the old background. Tools especially have been updated as well as the new spyglass lenses and now semi-transparent pumpkinblur effect.

There is even a Java version of that pack that includes some textures that are unable to be easily added into Bedrock. The file comes as an "unzip me" folder that includes two resource packs, the base pack and a tweaked pack designed to work with OptiFine's connected textures and better grass features. Here is a link to my Planet Minecraft page that focuses on the Java version of this pack: https://www.planetminecraft.com/texture-pack/improved-default-textures-pack/

You can now download the better glass textures separately. Both the .mcpack for Bedrock, and .zip pack for Java will be in an "unzip me" .zip pack similar to the java pack. (You can delete one of the packs if you only have one version).

Note: All texture packs were made on and for Windows 10 OS (PC), but they should work on other platforms (phone/console) and other Operating Systems (Mac/Linux). This was not tested.

Note 2: The (bedrock) packs may not load in all the textures if it is not set as a global resource pack.

Note 3: If you want to edit this pack for your own personal use, the .zip pack was included (for bedrock) as well as the ready to import .mcpack. I ask however, that you at least credit me if you decide to make your edited pack public.

Note 4: Also, feel free to give feedback on certain texture changes, texture ideas, and improvements in the comments of this page. Especially now with the 1.17 release.

Changelog

Currently not many 1.17 textures have been tweaked, but here is a list of what has been:

  • Copper blocks and raw ore blocks have had a slight change in shading
  • Polished Deepslate and tinted glass has had the hard borders removed
  • Deepslate brick variations have had a slight lightening/darkening on individual bricks
  • Numbers have been added to the hotbar slots
  • A few mobs have had slightly tweaked textures including golem and axolotl
  • Spyglass textures have been tweaked
  • The Java pack now has variation in some block textures

Installation

Simply click on the download link and the file(s) will download instantly.

Unzip any "unzip me" files by either copy/pasting the inside contents elsewhere, or by extracting the packs.

For the .mcpack (Windows 10) download, simply double click the folder and Minecraft will start up (unless already open). Minecraft will tell you that the pack has started importing and if it succeeds at doing so.

For the .zip pack (bedrock), rename the pack extension from .zip to .mcpack. Then follow the instructions above.

For the Java pack, open the  "open pack folder" in Minecraft and drag the resource pack(s) in, (after unzipping the "unzip me" pack).

This pack was updated to 1.17 from 1.16, if you are looking for an older version of the pack for 1.16, i can give you a link to the old pack, not many textures were changed or added in the new pack so the only difference should be no 1.17 textures. Here is the download link for the version right before 1.17 if thats hat you want:

This is one of the best texture packs out there. I like to have texture packs that look like Minecraft while still looking amazing. I'd suggest this texture pack whether you have Java or Bedrock.

no, connected textures only works with optifine for java. the base packs for both java and bedrock however have a glass texture that removes the outside borders completely. its basically simulated connect glass.

Hey, if you can make a small pack with only that textures (that i can add my textures to), that would be great! It's only really the regular grass texture i cant figure out since it is coded. if you can do that for me, I would be sure to credit you. Thank you.

Go straight on ahead, the pack is not copyright, and i did state you could edit it. I just ask that if you distribute it on a public sight like this that you at least give me credit for the original designs

Nice pack, I just checked the files and its too big. You can delete some textures and folders that you didnt edit like UIs, sounds, animations+++ so the pack will minimize.

I wanted to keep the full pack so that it would be easy for others to edit, but i am definitely considering a lighter version with less textures in the pack

also, the borderless stone stuff looks horrible in game due to people using them in a certain way
