Not all that are old or obsolete are worthless, useless, or cannot be entertaining anymore. Sometimes the earlier versions of a thing are more pleasing than the latest. In the world of Minecraft, this can be considered true on some resource packs they have released.
The Snowie’s Faithful Resource Pack 1.12.2 is considered one of the oldest because it was released for over 5 years ago now. But even though this resource pack has been released for quite a while now, it is still not that popular.
After all those years that passed after this resource pack was released, the pack has only reached only over a thousand download. But its popularity should not affect your views on the quality of the pack. It is definitely an exceptionally well-designed resource pack that players should consider checking out. It has now its latest updates that make it compatible to the latest version of Minecraft.
Resource Pack Specifications
Snowie’s Faithful Resource Pack is designed to help with the enhancement of textures in Minecraft. While it is enhancing the textures, it also makes sure that there will be no drastic changes made to the original art style of the game. The developers believe that the style of the game is what defines it throughout the years, so it should not be altered at all. And this Snowie’s Faithful Resource Pack has been successful in this goal.
This pack features an incredible level of texture, and it shows minimal to zero texture’s noise. It also has a vibrant color palette, and the smoothness of the items looks amazing. In general, the visuals offered by this pack are quite nice.
However, some textures need more improvements. However, if the pack is rated as whole, players who have tried it can prove that it is a high-quality constructed resource pack. Other players who have not tried this pack should not be afraid to try this one out. This is perfect for players who are looking for a firm resource pack that will stay faithful to the vanilla art style of Minecraft.
