What Is An X-Ray Texture Pack?
Well, that is a simple answer. An X-Ray texture pack is essentially a texture pack where every single terrain object besides ores has be re-textured to look like glass or be somewhat transparent. They are used in the place of X-Ray mods for the players who are unable to download them.
Why Don't They Work?
Well, that is very easy. X-Ray packs do not work because they are basically half glass-half normal blocks. When you re-texture a block to be transparent, it is still attempting to be non-transparent but since it is also basically glass, you can see through it still. When you surround an ore (lets say gold) with touching re-textured stone, it is still working as a normal stone block. It will not allow you to see directly behind it, so it is basically pointless. These types of packs no longer work. You will only see an endless amount of clear blocks unless of course you find a cave. The only good thing about an X-Ray texture pack is that you are able to find caves and lava pockets easily. Since they are still textured to appear as glass, they will show open spaces behind them. This means that they will show caves, but not ores (unless the ore is on the cave wall opposite of where you are).
The verdict is, don't use an X-Ray texture pack. They don't work. All you are going to see is an endless amount of clear blocks and a few caves. They are completely useless unless of course you are looking for caves. There is no point in downloading or creating them. Don't believe me? Give it a try. Download one and see if it works.
