How can Minecraft be better? By having more dog (aka wolf) variety! This resource pack adds 32 breed textures to the game. Plus, each breed has a variety set, so you can build up a whole army of corgis if you wanted to. There’s even three Nether breeds! You can use name tags to give a dog the breed you really want.
Inspired by old school RPGs, Misa’s Realistic has a semi-realistic vibe with a dash of medieval. Colors are darker and desaturated to reduce eyestrain, but it's meant to be faithful with vanilla Minecraft textures. It’s frequently updated by the developer and now has shader maps to improve the 3D modeling and textures of the pack itself!
For the players that prefer an improved version of Minecraft that still holds true to its roots, then Clarity is the resource pack for them. Clarity is a balance of realism and simplicity, while still holding true to Minecraft’s traditional design. Textures are given more detail, but clear in its intent to stay simplistic, hence the name. It’s a low impact resource pack, so anyone can add it and run the game smoothly.
Perhaps the shining star on this list, [xali’s Enhanced Vanilla] pack almost turns Minecraft into another game. While aiming to stay true to default textures, it utilizes Optifine to make things look more natural. With better transitions, alternate textures, and different modeling, players can feel like they’re connected to the world rather than simply thrust upon it.
