Java 1.7 Animations V2

Do you hate the vanilla Bedrock Edition player animations and general feel of the new Bedrock, ever since 1.13.0? Or maybe you want yet another way to make Bedrock look and feel closer to Java Edition, especially for PVP. Look no further, because this pack makes many improvements and tweaks to player animations to more closely resemble Java edition 1.7 (and even bedrock 1.12.1!). This pack has been completely rewritten/revamped for 1.16, 1.17, and 1.18!

Select version for changelog:


- removed monetized links

- fix capes not being attached to the player when emoting
- add back fire visibility for flame arrows and fireballs

IMPORTANT: If you are a mobile player and you experienced a bug where all entities, including players, were invisible when using the Java 1.7 Animations V2 pack, please redownload! I have identified the issue with the help of some testers and it is now fixed as of 12/26/21.
amazing pack please keep updating it and fixing bugs
Hi, so there is a bug with the pack where you cannot see your own capes that you have and when you disable a shield it still shows as it is up for both you and the targetted player. Oh and also banners do not work on shields. Thank you if you can fix these.
There are some features I would like to see added.

・Sword defense animation in 1st person (Like this: )
・Animation while charging bow, eating, drinking (Looks like swinging while charging/eating/drinking)
・Armor HUD (Because the java 1.7 anime pack conflicts with texture client)

Hi, I'm Jh0nzxx, a Brazilian YouTuber, I can use your texture animations in my texture files that I'm making to record videos. This texture will be released to some people, and of course I will give credit.
Hello I Know I am late A Bit But Can You Tell Me If I Can Have Permission To Use Those Animations Into My Upcoming Pack,Have A Great Day
