Default HD Legacy Minecraft Texture Pack
patreon.png discord.png

The normal Minecraft experience but in amazing 128x HD! Between a better sky and amazing shadowing, this pack is different from the rest! Gives a shaders feel without the awful FPS drop! I originally created this pack as there was no real/definitive default experience in HD with better shading. This does not just add more pixels like, for example, faithful. This keeps the original style and pixels, just shaded and in HD.

Back when I made this back in 2015, it was an instant hit, and I kept it up to date until 1.8 where I then took a hiatus from the community, however, I am back and better than ever and want to give you (the people) what the want and request. So After countless people asking me to update this pack, I am finally doing it. Current build (alpha) is for 1.16x but is not complete. This will be a long project as there is a lot of changes since I was gone. In this time I have created a few sky packs, most notably my largest project to date Ultimate Skys. You can read up on that and download the trial of it HERE. To support me and the time I will be putting into this project, I have a Patreon set up where you can support me.

This is the Legacy edition, meaning its for 1.13 and below, it is a fully finished pack with all my work from back then!

Please consider becoming a Patreon to help me along the way with the pack. Means the world to me and allows me to dedicate more time to the progress of the texture pack. I also have a Discord Community dedicated to the project you are more than welcome to join!

(Please NOTE: This pack looks much better with Optifine, but does not require it. Though it is recommended)

Thank you for over 500,000 downloads!


Please do not steal/modify textures unless for personal uses only! Do not create downloads for this on your own! Always link back to this site due to it being the original location. Texture Pack and details belong to thebaum64 (Christian Baum) Thank you!

Ahhh. This feels nice. It makes me feel like I'm back as a kid in 2015 playing minecraft on my PS3. the more mute and warm colors of the pack along with the slight blur to the blocks really takes me back. A lovely pack all-in-all!

Not sure, I work on the pack in sections. Like I start with blocks, once they are done, I move to items, and so forth.
