Top 5 Realistic Texture Packs for Minecraft 1.19 in 2022

The visual design and aesthetic of Minecraft may be the most iconic of any game. The game’s indie roots are clear to see through its pixelated textures and blocky generated worlds. However, this simplistic design, as good as it is, has a downside: it can become quite stale after hundreds of hours of play.

The Minecraft community, as usual, has worked hard to fix this issue. Mojang has made it incredibly easy to create custom texture packs for the game. The community has created a plethora of realistic texture packs for the game, the best of which are listed below.

Realistico, Stratum and 3 other fantastic realistic texture packs for Minecraft 1.19 as of 2022

1) Clarity

Clarity is a 32 x 32 texture pack available to players on the Java and Bedrock editions of the game. Unlike the other packs on this list, this resource pack is completely free, with the 32 x 32 option being the only one available.

Clarity does something that many other realistic texture packs fail to do: it feels like Minecraft. The pack uses enhanced textures to make the game look more realistic. However, it does so in such a way that it doesn’t completely erase the look, feel, and aesthetic of the vanilla game.

Clarity refreshes game textures adding detail and depth, increasing immersion and making the game look amazing.


2) realistic

Realistico has two different versions available to players: one that is free and one that is a paid premium texture pack.

The free version of the texture pack, known as Realistico Lite, has a texture resolution of 128 x 128. The premium version is fully featured and has a resolution of 512 x 512.

Realistico, as the name suggests, aims to make the game a much more realistic experience while still feeling like the game is the same. The pack attempts this by improving the textures, but struggles to make the textures similar enough to their vanilla versions to make them feel familiar.

The additional resolution comes with a greater depth of the textures, thus elevating the resource pack.


3) Brixel

Brixel takes the idea of ​​a “realistic” texture pack in a pretty unique direction. Instead of making Minecraft look like real life, he changes the game to resemble Lego, a natural transition since both are block-based construction toys. This means that the game looks real, since Lego exists, but it’s still like a toy, which is a very cute interpretation of realism in Minecraft.

There are a few different premium options that offer higher resolution. Higher resolutions are so realistic that the game actually feels more like Lego than Minecraft.

Brixel is a great choice for gamers who want a new experience from the monotony that many realistic texture packs can have.


4) Stratum

Stratum is a texture pack with many different resolutions available to players. There is a 128 x 128 option, a 256 x 256 option, a 512 x 512 option, a 1024 x 1024 option, and a 2048 x 2048 option available for gamers with different PC levels.

Unfortunately, only the 128 x 128 option is free for gamers; the rest are premium texture packs. However, this is not that surprising given the amount of work required to create such high resolution texture packs.

This texture pack completely changes the look of Minecraft. The highest fidelity option available is so realistic that it makes the game look like real-world footage. For example, the flowers are so realistic that it is almost comical to think of their original appearance.


5) Patricia

Patrix is ​​a freemium texture pack, similar to many high fidelity realistic texture packs. It has three main versions. There is a free version of the pack that has a 32 x 32 resolution. There are also two paid versions of the texture pack: one with a 128 x 128 resolution and one with a 256 x 256 resolution.

This texture pack is really phenomenal, almost good enough to make the player forget that they are playing Minecraft. The foliage loses its blocky appearance and is much more similar to those found in other 3D games.

Another detail that makes this texture pack great is the way water can collect in little puddles on top of other blocks when it rains. This adds a layer of realism to the game.
