There’s no doubt that Minecraft often creates beautiful features with its generated landscapes, forests and caverns. We’re often making great stone fortresses, traversing above and below ground, or making videos of a ridiculous script (okay, that last one is a bit less common). It’s all good and fun, but there are times when a break from the usual look for the game is in order – you can only punch the same wood for so long, if you get what I’m saying. If you didn’t giggle at an alternate euphemism, you probably did.
There are a plethora of different texture packs avaliable to us crafters out there, and a fair chunk of them are high definition. These require a plugin mod to convert some game files so you can go tear apart some highly detailed chunks of coal.
If you’re thinking that you need a high-definition break from the pixelly lands of Minecraft, you can download the patcher here and go hunting – we list a few HD textures below. Without further ado, let’s take a look at 5 Minecraft Texture Packs Worth Looking At:
This is a hand drawn 128×128 texture pack that both adds a really neat, personalized look and makes for a surprisingly smooth appearance.

The author is still working on armour and such, but for the most part the entire texture pack is sure to leave you feeling like you’re living in an inked world – just beware, creepers will still blow up your stuff like it was paper mache.
Here’s a video so you can check it out:
You can download the texture pack here, as well as take a look at more screenshots and the like. If you like the idea of a hand-drawn world, this is definitely a texture pack you could get used to using for a long, long time.
