The word fantasy it can mean different things to different people. Some people refer to it as a medieval-style setting with swords and dragons. Other people refer to it as anything outside the realm of reality. In our list below, we have put together the list of the best fantasy texture packs for all types of people, regardless of what type of fantasy you want!

All the texture packs we have listed are updated to fit Minecraft version 1.16 and higher. If you’d like to see how to install a texture / resource pack for your game, be sure to check out the instructions listed.

Best Modern Minecraft Texture Packs

Below you will find a clearer description and previews of all the texture packs on our list. If there are plugins associated with the resource pack, we will also mention them below.

Jehkoba Fantasy

Jehkoba’s fantasy fulfills the wish to see Minecraft with less clumsy and shocking blocks. The game itself matches a fantasy setting, and this texture pack helps stay true to the default pack, but softens the color scheme to match better. Those of us who play SNES will see the resemblance between this texture pack and fantasy settings in our favorite games for the system. This texture pack is perfect for wood and stone builders who like to keep things simple.

Square

Like Jehkoba’s Fantasy, Quadral is a texture pack that takes us back to the old days of playing on old game systems. The texture pack looks like a cross between Kirby Y Zelda games. This texture pack has sharper edges that allow you to easily distinguish between blocks, but not where it distracts. This texture pack was voted the winner in a simple texture pack contest, and for good reason. This pack is perfect for those of us who refer to fantasy as old-school RPGs.

Hafen

Simply put, Hafen looks a lot like Adventure time. There are strong elements of cartoon RPG fantasy and light touches of sensory overloaded textures from cyber-punk. This is a light color texture theme that brightens up your Minecraft world. The Nether looks completely different and makes bright colors and hues less inviting and more intimidating. The mobs get a complete makeover and make it difficult to determine if this texture pack brings you far back in time or sends you into a post-apocalyptic future.

Hananacraft

Hananacraft would be a cartographer’s dream. This texture pack has recently been updated to include new textures. One of the selling points of this texture pack is that it includes textures for many mods and items that are not in vanilla. Minecraft. It’s perfect for players who not only want to play in a fantasy world, but feel like they designed the world themselves. If you make home decor a regular part of your Minecraft gameplay, then this texture pack is perfect for you.

Medieval winthor

Winthor Medieval is the highest resolution we feature on our list (64x) and they use every pixel for incredible attention to detail. If your computer cannot handle 64x resolution in Minecraft, we almost recommend buying a computer just to experiment Minecraft with this texture pack. All the blocks feel like they brought you from the Middle Ages. The only problem is, it can feel like it’s warped to an alternate universe, a real-life 10th century blocky form. When you go back and see the world around you, you may want to get back in the game.
