This is a Resource Pack that gives the game a smooth but yet familiar look.

If you've wanted textures that preserve the essence of the originals and do not over-detail, this is for you. All textures have been made utilising image-upscaling algorithms, ensuring almost nothing of the vanilla Minecraft look is lost.

If you're a person who loves vanilla, then look no further than this!

VanillaXBR 1.12
VanillaXBR 1.8

*There aren't any versions for 1.12 or 1.8 yet.
It is planned though, so stay tuned.

Note: Although the pack is at 100% completion, it is still forever evolving. I always find new ways to improve on old textures each release, so please try to keep up to date for the best experience!

How did I achieve this?
If you're familiar with console emulators then you may recognise the style. This pack utilises a scaling method on the textures called 'xBR'. It was made by Hyllian to upscale pixel art four times its original size. I'd like to give some credit to him as this pack would have not been possible without it.

The tools I used to utilise the xBR algorithm outside of the emulators it was designed for were scripted versions of ImageResizer and Zenju's xBRZ. Feel free to make your own xBR Resource Packs by upscaling your own textures! I would really love to see what you come up with.

Thanks for reading! Now enjoy the pack! :)

Update #19 - The UI Update : 10/11/2021 7:08:31 amOct 11th


Here is an update to VanillaXBR. This time I've redone the entirety of the UI. This includes the Inventory and the hotbar. In addition to that, I've also added a new panorama! And in addition to even that, I'm trying out a new format for showing off these updates, and that's in video form! If you don't want to read all of this (as I'm sure you don't), you can view this video here. I will be making these for every update released from now on, so please enjoy them.


In the next update, I have exciting plans. I will be remaking most mobs as they are outdated. As soon as that's done I will either be backporting (to older versions like 1.12 and 1.8) or I'll be working on a bedrock version for people to enjoy. I'm really happy with the state of the pack now, and I appreciate everybody for sticking around. Thanks, and have fun.

I have experimented with ways of making it, and found a pretty solid solution.

I will eventually upload it. If you want it now you should pop into the discord.

Link to the (very scuffed) 512x version:

I recommend deleting GUI, and Font
