Before we enter 2013, that is if we get passed this friday (Its the 2012 thing that the world will end according to many legends, just so you know), MinecraftDL would like to present to you THE MOST POPULAR Texture Packs of 2012. I don’t there is much to say, most of you probably know these Texture Packs, but hell, it should be interesting to know which one actually is more popular this year. Will we maybe see some new comers on the list? I know the post of 2011 top Texture Pack is a trash, since all the images are broken, we might fix that sometime this week, but it might just be interesting to check the post out and see what has changed…
So you may click the subtitle of the Texture Pack to get more info. So…enough with the bla bla bla, let us begin!
An EXTREMELY detailed Texture Pack. One of the legends in fact it has many resolutions to choose from. Its sad though because this Texture Pack has not been updated since 1.3.2, now we hope it will soon. This also might be the reason it has fallen from #5 in 2011 to #8 in 2012. I’m a big fan, despite my PC running at its edge while using it, its details is just amazing!
Faithful Texture Pack is another new comer on the list. What’s so special about it? Well, its PLAIN. In fact its plain enough to catch a lot of attention. Its plainer than the default texture pack and maybe that is exactly the reason people love it. Of course many things we buy or use today is just because its plain and simple. This Texture Pack has just that!
Ohhhh yeah. We all know what this is. It isn’t the XRay Mod though. Its the XRay Texture Pack, or what its known for today as the StrongestCraft Texture Pack. Now I know many people use these for a number of reasons. I wouldn’t go into that, I personally have tried it, and yes its helpful, but no, its not what I use. My Minecraft gaming does not require this one, but obviously many of you do…but maybe less, it fell from #4 to #6… We’ll see in a years time how it will do from here.
Now we ALL know what this one is. Its THE legend of Minecraft Texture Pack. I can’t help it but being a little biased here so I added two images. Sorry guys, we can’t always be fair can we? The sad thing about this Texture Pack? It fell from the top spot of 2011 to the #5. A 32x Texture Pack which has something in it that just makes Minecraft perfect, at least for me it does. See what you think if you haven’t already.
Misa’s Realistic Texture Pack, another one of those that everybody has probably tried before. It is the first one here on the list that actually improved its popularity over the year of 2012. From # 6 it moved up to #4. Realistic indeed, its a 64x Texture Pack that has really detailed its texture to the point you will be amazed. I specifically chose the Creeper image because it actually scared me at times that it caught me off guard. So if your not up for it, don’t. No actually do, it’ll be fun!
- Now the DokuCraft has moved down one spot, not so bad considering how other popular mods have fallen dramatically in popularity losing ways for the new comers. Its comparably popular to the JohnSmith Texture Pack if you look at it through the Minecraft history book. I mean if I had to come up with names of Minecraft Texture Packs in a blick of an eye, this would be it. Its a 32x and 64x Texture Pack. Its currently being continued by the community of fans and you should check it out. I mean if you probably can’t call yourself a true Minecraft fan if you never have.
Perfectly perfect. I mean its realistic, its smooth, its great, and has always remained a great Texture Pack all these years. Its one of the first popular Texture Pack of Minecraft and remains one of the best, in fact this year it is THE BEST Texture Pack according to you guys. I’ll give you an hint, this year alone it received downloads in the millions. So I’m quite sure most of you have tried it, or still use it at this point. It has resolutions ranging from 16x, 32x, 64x, 128x, and 256x so you can’t use the resolution limitation as an excuse, at least try the 32x, even that one is really good!
So guys, that is it for the Texture Packs, I hope this helps or was at least interesting. Stay tuned for the same Top 10 with Mods and Maps. We will have those up within this week. Enjoy Minecrafting and I hope you guys like what we do here. We work extremely hard to find the best of everything Minecraft for you guys, we’re sorry for the flaws of this website, there are certain limitation we have to overcome and we will do our best. Once again, Thank you and Have fun!
