Ore Grids 1.16 Texture Pack is a resource pack for the Minecraft 1.16 snapshot. For many, highlighted ores has simply become the way we know Minecraft ores to look, and it can be hard to go back to the vanilla, non-highlighted variety, so it’s fantastic news that Ore Grids is now up and running for the highly anticipated 1.16 snapshot. Check out my review below where I’ll be discussing some of this small pack’s highlights.
What is Ore Grids 1.16 Texture Pack?
No, Ore Grids isn’t some kind of hybrid between ore and the fictional character of Hagrid, Ore Grids is actually a resource pack that takes its main function from PVP packs that are ever-popular across the Minecraft community. It’s a simple pack with a simple goal, but that doesn’t mean that it still isn’t useful! Check it out below.
If you’re in self-isolation right now, why not treat yourself to some easy ore spotting by installing Ore Grids for your next Minecraft gaming session? You better do it, ore else! (Just kidding.)
Is Ore Grids 1.16 Texture Pack fun to play with?
This is the sort of pack that just offers some good old fashioned visual improvements to the game we all know and love. I think we’ve all found ourselves desperately in search of new rare materials for our latest survival world, and it can be difficult to find those precious pockets of diamonds when you’re battling all sorts of creepy crawlies and avoiding pitfalls and lava pools.
That’s where Ore Grids comes in. No longer do you need to turn your brightness up to radioactive levels, or spam torches at each and every step. Now you can spot ores from chunks away thanks to this pack’s simple and effective highlight textures.
Basically, this pack adds a simple border to each ore texture. Don’t worry all of you aesthetically-driven players out there, because every border is colour coordinated to its corresponding ore block, so the pack manages to keep things both practical and fashionable.
There’s very little to complain about here. If you want some practical and tasteful visual advantages either over the game itself or other players, then you can’t go wrong with such a simple pack like this. And although I wouldn’t recommend the pack to players who like big thematic visual overhauls, I can recommend this pack to most players who simply want an easier time finding those precious materials deep below the ground.
