In Minecraft, the creativity of the players is not limited only to the incredible buildings and worlds created within the game. It is also possible to fully customize the appearance of the game, without losing the characteristic appearance of the blocks. Learn how they work and how to put texture in Minecraft.
What are textures?
Texture packs are image files that completely enhance or alter the look of Minecraft. All editions of the game support texture packs, which can be created by both Mojang and the community.
The standard format for a texture is 16 × 16 pixels (referring to the standard height and width of the blocks). Larger formats (such as 32×32, 64×64, etc.) are considered high definition (HD) and require the installation of an unofficial modification to work.
Texture packs are usually associated with a particular version of the game. A texture from an older version can be added to a newer version, but it may cause compatibility issues or crashes.
