Minecraft Better Skies Mod

minecraft better skies mod glitch

The minecraft sky has always been a thing of interest, if not beauty. Blocky white clouds floating in a bright blue void, interspersed with downpours of dangerously uniform rain that falls everywhere but on you. If you look up, you’ll see that the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain, but the rain in Minecraft avoids you like the plague. The Better Skies mod, on the other hand, turns the minecraft sky into a canvas worthy of Van Gough.

You can get the Better Skies mod as part of the legendary MC Patcher, which enables you to use all kinds of HD Texture packs.

Summerfields Minecraft HD Texture Pack (32x) 1.9.2 Pre-Release Compatible!

It’s been quite some time since I reviewed a Minecraft texture pack, let alone a 32x texture pack, but Summerfields is one of the most gorgeous and aesthetically pleasing texture packs I’ve seen in quite some time. It reminds me a great deal of JoliCraft, both were made by French designers, unless I am very much mistaken and both have a wonderful lightness of spirit, or joi de vivre that a great many players find particularly enjoyable.

Six Super Realistic Hi Res HD Minecraft Texture Packs

These days everything is about realism and high definition. Give me high resolution pixel reality or give me death. When it comes to Minecraft, there are several HD realistic texture packs to choose from and I’ve played pretty much all of them in my quest to review all the HD texture packs.

Maraxos Realism HD Hi-Res Minecraft Texture Pack (32x, 64x, 128x, 256x)

A nicely made HD texture pack with realistic stylings and stone walls that will make you go into a drooling trance.

LB RPG Realism Hi Res HD Minecraft Texture Pack (64x 128x 256x 512x)

From that guy who bought you LB Realism (only the most famous realistic HD minecraft texture pack) comes this RPG styled effort. It takes a lot of its design aesthetic from LB Realism, but adds an RPG twist that will appeal to anyone with RPG soul.

Smooth Modern | Modern Style HD Minecraft Texture Pack (256x)

Smooth modern is a compilation realistic HD Minecraft texture pack that has its sights clearly set on a modern aesthetic. If you want to bring Minecraft into the 21st century, this might very well be the compilation you’re looking for.

Amethyst’s Photo Realistic Hi Res HD Minecraft Texture Pack (128x)

This is a lesser known texture pack, but actually a very well done one, and it’s an excellent alternative to the LB texture packs that are so cliche right now. There’s still a touch of whimsy to this pack, but the textures are sharp and clean and it’s definitely worth a look.

Minecraft Enhanced, Super Hi-Res Realistic HD Minecraft Texture Pack Mod (128x, 256x)

Minecraft Enhanced is a very high resolution Minecraft texture pack, but it is more than that too, it is also a mod that functions something like a complete reworking of the visual settings and options associated with Minecraft. It’s Minecraft, Jim, but not as we know it.

Misa’s Realistic Hi-Res HD Minecraft Texture Pack (64x)

One of the best realistic HD Minecraft texture packs at the ‘lower’ end of the resolution scale, Misa’s realistic probably contains the best balance of art and realism I’ve ever seen. We all know that realistic texture packs can take their attempts at realism too far. Misa’s keeps it real, so to speak, but does so with an eye to beauty.

Maraxos Realism HD Hi-Res Minecraft Texture Pack (32x, 64x, 128x, 256x)

There’s a graphical pixel race going on in Minecraft at the moment. It seems as if everyone is fighting for more definition! More high resolution! More realism from a Minecraft texture pack! Well, we have a new contender, folks. This one’s called the Maraxos HD Realism texture pack. It’s so pretty that I took a screenshot of a stone wall and didn’t feel as if it was redundant to do so.

LB RPG Realism Hi Res HD Minecraft Texture Pack (64x 128x 256x 512x)

The man behind LB Photo Realistic Texture Pack has done it again with an HD RPG style texture pack guaranteed to satisfy people who believe that Minecraft is probably an RPG hiding in a sandbox crafting game. The aim of this texture pack, as implied by the title, is realistic RPG style graphics. How well has this aim been achieved? Well, let me just say that I’m impressed.
