In some cases, even the very simple resource packs can provide to its users a lot more than just the slightly changed graphics that we see at the first sight. And the K44du2’s Simpleton resource pack is a really good example of this. Feature a low resolution of just 16x, it does not offer textures that look really better than normal Minecraft, and even many of the items and blocks do look different. But to be honest, this pack does a few other great things, making it stand out from other low-resolution packs. Firstly, it has several animated textures, together with few different textures for each mob, creating a nice kinda “random” feeling to the monsters seen by the player.
In addition, there’re several other nice graphical changes that you can look forward to getting from this pack. As having the K44du2’s Simpleton Resource Pack, all of the original arts now are replaced by a great number of different paintings. This feature is so cool because it is the point that many low-resolution packs fall short, for the purpose of keeping the resolution low. However, some of the mobs really don’t look like they were changed by the pack at all. For example, the creeper and chickens look exactly the same as normal. But otherwise this pack really comes through.
Not like many other resource packs which seem so confusing for those ones, who are just starting out in Minecraft, the K44du2’s Simpleton resource pack is pretty intuitive. Thanks to the pack, even a completely new gamer would still be able to distinguish between the wood, metals, stone, igneous rocks, clays bocks. Notably, despite its low-res, the pack still offers some really great textures which look significantly better than those in the higher resolution packs. Also, you will probably want to take some time to stare at the pack’s lava when you first see it, particularly in the Nether.
