Rainbow Swords 1.15 is a resource pack for Minecraft 1.15 that transforms the dull, old, and frankly boring vanilla swords into shiny rainbow swords of awesomeness! When it comes to videogames, rainbow items are always the best, so it’s only natural that someone has brought the same philosophy to Minecraft. Dazzle your enemies. Impress your friends. Have your own private disco. This pack is certainly a silly one, but it’s still worth checking out. Keep reading to find out more about this multi-coloured pack.
What is Rainbow Swords 1.15?
Rainbow Swords 1.15 is a simple resource pack that replaces all of the games swords (wood, iron, gold and diamond) into fantastical technicoloured weapons. No longer will your swords meekly sit in your inventory, not only refusing to change to different colours, but refusing to do anything at all! That time is over. Now it’s time for bombastic swords that shine forever with a rainbow hue.
What is Rainbow Swords 1.15 like to play with?
As Rainbow Swords 1.15 is a pretty basic and small-scope resource pack, there’s not much to cover. Ultimately, the pack replaces your swords with rainbow variants. Why? Because rainbows are cool, duh! I joked earlier that video game logic dictates that rainbow weapons are always better, and you can’t help but feel like you’ve undergone a serious weapons upgrade whilst holding one of these rainbow swords, I must admit.
The swords themselves work just fine, flickering between different colours of the rainbow, making for a dazzling spectacle. However, I do wish that rather than quickly changing between different colours, that the effect was a bit less simplistic and some additional effects might have been cool. I only raise this point because it’s very hard to demonstrate how the swords look via screenshots as they only appear to be one colour.
On a somewhat related note, it is kind of disappointing that all different types of swords have the exact same rainbow skin. Wooden swords, despite their obvious poor quality, appear identical to diamond swords. This isn’t only a bit annoying for aesthetic reasons, but it also makes sorting through inventory or storage weapons more difficult as you can’t differentiate between your swords at a glance and have to use the hover nametags to see which sort of sword you’re looking at.
I’d also suggest that to use caution if you suffer from epilepsy or any other condition. The rainbow effect is quite fast-moving, so do be careful. Even if you don’t need to worry about that, I’d still imagine some might find the effect quite nauseating after a significant amount of play time.
