Xray Beast 1.16.3 is here! Long heralded as the best of the best when it comes to Minecraft Xray mods, the pack’s creator BeastX has now given players the chance to use the pack with the brand-spanking-new Nether update! Read on to hear more. For those snapshots players Xray 1.17 download is now also available.
What is Xray BeastX 1.16.3 for Minecraft?
Xray BeastX is one of the most well-known x-ray mods for Minecraft. Specifically designed to help players find diamonds, gold, gold and so much more, Xray BeastX hides all of the blocks in the Minecraft world that simply, just aren’t worth your time.
What does Xray BeastX 1.16.3 for Minecraft do?
Unlike an x-ray mod, Xray BeastX is actually a resource pack. This means that instead of an arduous installation process or difficult mod maintenance, players can easily emulate the results of x-ray mods with the simplicity of the vanilla resource pack menu.
The way that Xray BeastX mimics the way that x-ray mods work is done by simply making most of the game’s textures completely invisible. Obviously this helps to get rid of an absolute ton of the game’s blocks, but it does make the world somewhat difficult to navigate. Players might find themselves bumping into various things every now and again, but luckily the pack uses block outlines to prevent you from getting lost in a maze of invisible walls.
Finding useful blocks with X-ray BeastX is super easy. Even in a few minutes of searching, you will be able to find diamonds, gold, and tons of other goodies. What’s more, finding structures is incredibly simple too.
However, this useful tool can also easily be exploited by griefers and cheaters. It’s definitely a powerful tool to have in your arsenal, so we recommend always following the individual rules of each server you play on.
Another downside to this pack is that it doesn’t and can’t offer the same sleek experience as some of Minecraft’s best x-ray mods. Some mods supply players with custom GUIs and interfaces that allow for easy mix-and-match selections of blocks, making finding exactly what you’re after so much easier. This isn’t the case here, and you’ll simply have to use the pack as-is and get accustomed to its specific selection of visible blocks.
All that said, Xray BeastX 1.16.3 is a great way for players to achieve the x-ray mod experience without the need for any mods at all. Using clever resource pack design, this pack lets players cut out the extra time spent hunting for those precious, precious resources.
