The BackyardCraft resource pack for Minecraft is definitely one among those rare packs which come in various different resolutions, meaning that it’s usable by a wide range of Minecraft players – even those who do not have PCs capable of chugging out 60+ FPS on the pack with a very high resolution of 512x. This pack really maxes out at 256x but that is not really the point. As it’s available to a much wider number of players than most hardcore realism packs, this BackyardCraft resource pack is gonna be inherently more popular. Well, other packs might look better even than the best version of this pack, but they actually demand far more resources from the users.
Also, since the different resolutions feature just the same textures with the higher or lower levels of detail that are put into them, it is kinda hard to compare different versions with each other in the BackyardCraft resource pack. They tend to look the same and that is not a bad thing at all in this case. You will right away notice all types of doors now get unique faces and models, which’s a nice touch. Villagers also look creepier than ever thanks to photorealistic faces plastered onto cubic, and flat heads. Most of the other monster and mobs all look quite good though, so this is forgivable.
However, to be fair, we must admit that not everything about this pack is all really good. Lava looks a lot like solid granite rock than anything else here, and that’ll likely lead you to walk into a pool of it while underground. So, be sure that you watch for the fluid motions then see if that “granite” you are looking at spreads when breaking blocks next to it first. You will also need Optifine installed for the greatest experience.
