Like the name suggests, the MagiCraft 8 Bit resource pack comes with a bitcount of 8, or a resolution of 8x. This means MagiCraft actually dumbs down the graphics in Minecraft. The reasons behind this are twofold – first, the simpler textures mean that even players with computers that normally struggle to play Minecraft can get a big boost to their framerate and make the game more playable when using these simpler textures. Second, the art style is simplistic enough that it shouldn’t offend anyone. There are no waves in the water, no reflections, no ultra-bright blocks in annoying colors. It’s quite nice really.
You’ll notice the changes made by MagiCraft 8 Bit Resource Pack as soon as you open your inventory window thanks to the custom GUI scripted into this resource pack. It adds a bright blue hue to the border of your inventory window, as well as the windows you see when accessing chests and cooking up potions at a brewing stand. Sadly, the background is the same old grey color, but then there are only so many changes you can make with a 8x resolution pack like MagiCraft. Very few of the icons for items have been changed, mostly to keep things working smoothly for the player.
Those icons that do get changed become more blurry versions of their normal images, but you can still easily make out what it is you’re looking at if you’re an experienced Minecraft player. From wooden planks to sandstone to grassy dirt, everything looks simpler, with fewer bits in every single texture. If you don’t mind your Minecraft world taking on a kind of muddy look, or if you’re experiencing slowdown when playing Minecraft because you mod heavily or don’t have a great computer, MagiCraft 8-Bit is a great option for you. Players who want to keep things simple will be happy with this pack.
