This is one of our all-time favorite xray mods. This mod makes finding anything you could possibly ever want in Minecraft incredibly easy. Instead of removing all the blocks from the game, this mod actually lets you pick and choose which blocks you’d like to see. This means you can truly customize your x-ray vision, letting you alter the mod whenever you want. This results in an incredibly useful and versatile discovery tool.
If you’re someone who doesn’t like installing mods or finds them too daunting, then here’s an x-ray option just for you. Xray Ultimate 1.17 is actually a resource pack, meaning that it’s incredibly easy to install. This keeps your version of Minecraft mod free and clean as a whistle. The only downside is that the pack can’t be tweaked or altered as a mod can, but you are able to easily switch between resource packs for when you’d like to turn your x-ray mode off.
Here’s another resource pack entry to our list of Xray 1.17. Again, while this resource pack might not boast some of the cool features and settings that a dedicated x-ray mod might do, it does allow players to easily give themselves x-ray vision without the hassle of mod installation.

First, we’ll start with the texture pack installation. We recommend having Optifine installed whenever installing resource packs.
To begin, download the x-ray resource pack you want to play with as a zip. When that’s done, make your way to Minecraft’s setting menu and go to options>resource packs>open resource pack folder. The folder you need will open for you.
Alternatively, you can find the folder by going to one of the following file directories:
Just place the zip file for your x-ray resource pack into the resource pack folder and you’re done! You will then be able to choose the pack from your resource pack menu in Minecraft.
First, make sure you have a modloader installed. We’ll be using Forge, and you can see how to install that here.
With your modloader (Forge, in our case) installed, download the zip for the x-ray mod you wish to use. Also, make sure to launch the game with your modloader profile at least once through the Launcher.
Go to the appropriate file directory listed in the table below, and open the folder named ‘mods’.
To install your x-ray mod, just place the zip file inside of the folder. Once you start the game with the modloader (Forge) profile, you should see that the x-ray mod you chose is installed.
Note that there is also an available version of Xray Minecraft PE for mobile phones and Xbox.
Note: Currently, Xray texture packs and mods for Minecraft 1.17 are not yet released to the public. However, you can download the previous versions while the developers work on their 1.17 versions.
