What is Toby's Alternative Minecraft 1.15?
The name kind of gives this one away. This resource pack is an alternative take on the default set of textures already present in Minecraft. Created by the eponymous Toby, Toby’s Alternative Minecraft 1.15 isn’t a comprehensive overhaul of the game’s textures, but a slight variation that seeks to improve certain aspects of the original texture designs.
What is Toby's Alternative Minecraft 1.15 like to play with?
I really enjoyed playing with Toby's Alternative Minecraft 1.15. The pack’s biggest strength lies with the simplicity it holds so close to its chest. The creator (Toby) does a fantastic job of reimagining classic Minecraft blocks, giving them new life through more pleasant and aesthetically interesting textures.
One of the new textures, seen in the classic grass and dirt blocks, slots into the game’s aesthetic perfectly. If you’re a fan of the more granular and detailed 16x16 textures in the base game such as granite, you’ll love these new textures. Toby’s textures don’t take a minimalist or simple approach despite the small resolution size. In fact, the textures added in this pack match the detail and complexity of the base game’s more interesting block designs.
The pack’s simplicity won’t win over players looking for packs that will change Minecraft’s visuals into a totally new style, but it will be a perfect choice for players who cherish Minecraft’s original art style but are open to some improvements and changes to those classic textures. Really, this is the pack’s only major downside: that it doesn’t offer as much sprawling content as other packs. But this isn’t a bad thing and can be seen as a positive depending on what sort of player you are.
So there you have it, my quick review and rundown of this selectively simple resource pack. I highly recommend it to those of you who are defenders of Minecraft’s classic look. And even if you usually aren’t, why not give it a go? It might just surprise you. So keep scrolling down below and make Toby's Alternative Minecraft 1.15 your newest Minecraft resource pack.
