The SixtyGig resource pack tightly closes to Minecraft’s original look in that all the textures look the same and nothing seems to stand out more than it normally would. The upgrade to a 64x resolution makes the majority of the blocks, items, and icons pop more than normal, but they are all doing it together causes nothing seems off. The higher resolution doesn’t make things look more realistic though – this pack turns Minecraft look into a cartoon more than most others. There are some decent shadow effects as well.
The only problem of the SixtyGig pack is, it was made to run with MCPatcher. It doesn’t matter if that’s the mod loader you already use, but if you’re used to using Forge and having some Forge only mods installed, you will need to adjust somethings before you can try this resource pack. Although you can still run this resource pack no need to use MCPatcher, you won’t get the best experience and if you’re already having trouble of getting the pack, it seems like some extra efforts in return for what you get.
Another bad thing about the SixtyGig resource pack which is probably going to be more frustrating for more people is the fact that it can’t work with Minecraft 1.8 and up. It was increased recently to 1.7.X and while there are plans to make it compatible with the latest version of Minecraft, no such version of the resource pack exists yet, so there’s nothing for it. If you feel comfortable of dialing back your game version and perhaps making another small concession, this pack still has some great textures to offer.
