Thank to this resource pack, I can finally see the beauty of RTX in competitive multiplayer skywar game

Although, I don't really recommend this for that, for some reason, minecraft RTX really destroy my internet performance. It really lags me out, and sometimes, outright disconnect me from the server

Still, this is a very good resource pack if you want vanilla RTX enabled everywhere on minecraft!

This is one of the best RTX recource packs out there. Makes the game seem much more vibrant and real while keeping the classic look of minecraft. Pack works with 1.17, but am hoping it gets updated with the new blocks in time for 1.18.

RTX won't work on Android. You need a computer with a GPU that supports ray tracing.

Make it so in controls you can change what button to turn it on and of. and do that for controller controls.

Love it but can you make an update so that the 1.17 blocks fully work with Ray-Tracing?

Love the textures and the features, my only complaint is that banners become plain white with nothing on them and horses lose their textures until a saddle or horse armour is put onto them.

Is it normal for the whole screen to be black? I can hit things and see them drop their particles but I can't see a single thing.

update: thought I have an rtx, turns out I have an gtx 1060. but I updated the drivers which should now allow for racetracing. even if my card allows racetracing it will still n ot work unless I have one of the drivers mentioned?

your gtx 1060 will never be able to run ray tracing, even with driver updates. you need an rtx card (2060 or better) to be able to run this at all, its not gonna work for you

I thought it did. I've been testing RTX packs in an Amethyst cave to test if they have the latest blocks, and this has been the only one to treat the gemstone as anything but stone. Normal map have a fun glitter to it with minor reflections, while the height map version reflects like diamond but tints the light bouncing off with a slight purple hue.
I hope this isn't a glitch, because it's a fun affect.

I can’t use this on my realm please make one that looks like this that is usable on realms

I just installed it on a realm, and it does work. BUT, it only seems to work with the default height map and it will not activate the toggle for the pixelated height map (which determines things like reflectiveness on some surfaces). It would be nice to either have 2 different packs (one for each) to get around this, or fix whatever isn't liked by the realm setting.

This is great !
I have a RTX 3070, it works fine for me.
although there are some detail need to improve,
e.g. - maybe the water is too dark?
- Illager Banner‌ became a whiteboard

Anyway, look forward to the next upgrade.

Do you think of providing 1.17 support (and possibly in the future 1.18) to this texture pack? Altogether fantastic looking texture pack though and perfect for what I want in a RTX texture pack.
