Java Aspects

This texture pack was created to make Minecraft: Bedrock Edition feel, sound and look more like the original version of Minecraft called Java Edition. It changes this such as water, explosion particles, block sounds, drowned animations, block and item names, and many other things. If you're a big fan of Java Edition, you'll love this pack too!

Pack Documents:

  • Added a Java Aspects title texture to the custom tab (Thanks, @patredenglish!)


  • Mob effects cannot be moved to the right side of the screen. Due to how they're hard-coded, it's impossible to align them correctly for all aspect ratios and GUI scales.
  • This update changes held item poses to use Console Aspects' system, which means 3D items have a slight tilt in your hand. This was necessary because there are now too many 2D items for Minecraft to load in an animation query without crashing. The benefit of this new system is that new 2D items will look correct without a Java Aspects update. If you want to use the original system that crashes the game, it is included with 1.20 items in the "Original Player Item Pose Animation (Crashes)" file in the animations folder.
  • Toast notifications are not animated on beta/preview versions due to upcoming changes related to recipe unlocking.

How does of behaviour pack to use it for another aspects?
Hello AgentMindStorm. I am making a texture pack and would like to use some of your files to make it better. (I will credit you and put the link to this pack in credit section of my texture pack)
Hello, how do you like the idea of ​​​​adding a slot in the left hand with a display of strength like in Java
hi, can you tell me why? when i play with experimental settings, block textures disappear
well, some textures are misplaced as there is a shield in the place of golden boots and the creative inventory categories icons is with random textures instead of their own. Please fix!
agentmindstormbigfan March 14, 2023 at 3:13 am
also can you please add Off-hand slot on the hotbar when equipping sheild, totem of undying etc. And please put Durability ty😭
I agreed, that would be really cool
