Xray 1.17 has been labeled as both a blessing and a curse since it first entered Minecraft. Xray has been a blessing for solo players who use Xray to see through blocks and find diamonds faster. It has helped countless numbers of players to locate any valuable ores and blocks faster than ever. However, at the same time, Xray 1.17 has been a thorn to some multi-player servers where-in some players abuse it and utilize it to take advantage of another player's on the server such as finding resources faster and locating other player's and guild's secret bases and stealing all of their valuables. Xray 1.17 comes in multiple forms. It ranges from Xray texture packs which you can easily activate and deactivate by turning the texture on or off. However, Xray texture packs do come with a limit since you can't possibly tick on or off which blocks you want to become transparent. It ranges up to Xray Mods which allow you to select which type of blocks you want to tick on and off. Xray Mods also allow players to select up to which level becomes transparent. However, the effects of an Xray mod or texture pack all depend on its developer.
