This list contains both official and custom made packs that are known for their high quality graphics.

These may vary from 64x resolution up to 256x resolution. Do note there might be higher resolution packs but they might not be as enjoyable as these packs on our list. Let's dive in deeper and discover the awesomeness of HD resource packs.

What are HD Resource Packs

Resource packs for Minecraft were introduced in the Pre-Release stage of Beta 1.3. The purpose of HD resource packs is to provide players with high resolution textures - so that you can experience a quality game even on high end to low end devices. Combined with a Shader such as BSL Shaders or SEUS Shaders, it makes the game almost life-like.


Although High resolution packs were made to make the game realistic, there are also plenty of packs which aim to make Minecraft look better without removing the overall aspect of the game. These packs remain Faithful and true to how Minecraft was supposed to look while making the quality of visuals extremely high.
