Jehkoba's Fantasy Resource Pack

This Minecraft resource pack offers a complete graphical overhaul of the game with some amazing 3D models and original textures.

Hafen Resource Pack

Hafen is very similar to Jehkoba's cartoony style but slightly toned down. The colors of the textures are just as vibrant, but all the items and blocks are still strongly reminiscent of vanilla Minecraft.

The Hafen pack also includes an original font, but you can easily remove it and leave the vanilla one if you want more of the same old Minecraft.

Soft Bits Resource Pack

Minecraft is famous for its square-ness, but this is a resource pack that makes it a little less sharp along the edges. You still get the same blocky design, but the special color palette makes these blocks look much softer.

It's a small change but one worthwhile for those that might have grown tired of Minecraft's base design.

Firewolf HD 3D Resource Pack

The selling point of the Firewolf resource pack is its high definition textures. It offers over 300 original textures, 3D models, connecting textures that make everything look smoother, and enhanced colorization of the world.

Firewolf makes everything look like Minecraft Pixar, even if you go mining deep down underground. The lighting effects are so well done that you will never want to return to vanilla lighting ever again.

Excalibur Resource Pack

Wizardry World Resource Pack

This is a pack for all fans of the magical world of Harry Potter. It will send you straight to the world of wizards, magic wands, broomsticks, dementors, and other familiar items of this world-famous story.

Even the furniture inside the buildings and all the little items scattered around are inspired by the original movies, which is quite amazing when you see it all in Minecraft.
