THE LOWEST RESOLUTION MINECRAFT CAN BE (1×1)

THE LOWEST RESOLUTION MINECRAFT CAN BE (1×1)

Hello I’m ibxtoycat welcome back to minecraft texture pack review video So this is something I mostly do on minecraft bedrock edition but I figured given we been going through all of the highest quality texture packs that do exist the 128 x 128 the 256 x 256 the insanely high detailed texture packs I figured why not take things back a notch and go to one of my favorite things that does exist on the java version because There is such a thing as a one by one texture pack. That’s right if you go to resource packs and you get yourself a the pixel pack or any other such in fact You can actually get a texture pack which is built for 1 x 1 Minecraft, every single block instead of having, you know Sixteen pixels on every single face has one pixel on every single face and let’s just say it’s a little bit Weird to say the least as you can probably see from the background and even the menu screens which are kind of bizarre So here is a full-on review off the one by one texture pack the least detail Texture Pack You can’t get is it any good? Let’s find out So please do turn on notifications If you want to see more of these videos and texture pack reviews and such daily on your home page because it’s the best way To let YouTube know that you actually want to see videos rather than maybe you want to see them It’s confusing but let’s get straight into what the texture pack actually changes So a 1 x 1 texture pack means that every single texture that minecraft gives them the options texture has to be one solid color Only so the options menu background which you know previously is a big old texture. It’s 1 x 1 any single I know menu beyond that everything single thing is one by one and this means that every block texture that isn’t, you know? like
you know stairs for instance is gonna be just one sort of Cube by one sort of cube a meter of color on everything which is Pretty well when you think about it, so we’ll load up a new world in a second But first of all, let’s load up a world that you might have already seen in some previous videos So yeah, this is just a again it’s just such a wild one because every you know, Everything looks really normal for a second until you zoom in but it’s the same as when you look at that 256 x 256 texture pack where everything looks kind of crazy high detailed and you know But like only when you really look into it, it’s the same thing here, but if you don’t look into it Everything looks like normal minecraft look in the distance You can’t tell whether we’re playing a 256 by 256 or a 1×1 texture pack because at that distance It really doesn’t matter and even at some intermediate different distances. It’s like if you don’t focus on it too much you could predict Oh, yeah, those are some normal Wolf’s or sheep or whatever is over there. That’s some normal sugar cane It’s when you really start to focus and when you really start to pay attention that you’ll notice things so it’s worth mentioning This texture pack is like the plastic texture pack except instead of half the detail for default textures. It is one 256 of the details so were talking nort point No point five less than 0.5% off the detail you get in regular minecraft. But yeah, it still looks pretty okay in most places So for instance, the grass block is just a solid green block A lot of people love this actually a lot of texture packs will do this Just make it all green rather than just the top, but it looks really really quite strange in my opinion So can’t say I’m the biggest fan of it. Oh, but this is 1.12 So any 1.13 features are going to be actually detailed rather than one by one, but yeah So grass blocks are just all green all the way around same with dirt blocks same way if we dig down Stone or anything like that every single block like I said is a 1×1 texture so if we fly around the world and just kind of give you a brief overview, you’ll see how like Yeah, actually looking around everything looks exactly like this The trees are just these big huge blocky things, they look incredibly plastic beyond plastic In fact anything beyond the trees like, you know this flower right here It’s just a red vague icon to represent something and yeah Every single thing is just this super super plasticky texture including animals, which is my favorite example so animals, they have the textures that are built into the game itself, but the you know This the sheepskin is just one solid color and the Sheep itself is one solid color, which means we get no faces This is the horrific texture pack with no faces whatsoever. Which honestly creeps me out Just the tiniest bit in fact more than the tiniest bit, but still looking at every single animal. There’s no pig tail There’s just the pig geometry right here But there is something that I will say about this because looking at every single texture you can see the point It’s basic. Everything is 1 x 1 There’s no detail beyond what the game itself provides physically speaking and on the surface that seems like so why does this exist? It’s just terrible right? It’s just a way to be funny and memey and, hahaha Look, there’s there’s nothing but you know, like, you know There’s there’s chickens without faces how hilarious or should I say ducks without faces because that’s what they are right here And as you can see, it’s exactly the same water But even though that’s the case for most of this also, we throw away our corals because they’re not the same thing but even of this case for most of it there are some really odd situations and some places where I’d say this texture pack actually is Recommendable. So yeah, one way when texture packs they’re entirely free on Java, which is nice You should have to download them on planet minecraft or whatever again Google one by one Tex packs Get the pixels one If you won’t get any of takes pack They’re all gonna be roughly the same because there isn’t much differentiating them And yeah let’s let’s talk about the blocks. That aren’t as simple. It’s just like oh, yeah look over here It’s just green grass, you know, brown dirt brown trees and you know, the horses without faces already anything, you know It’s it’s creepy stuff But let’s look at stuff like these sandstone stairs For instance because the geometry of the blocks themselves can really define stuff and make them different So if we look at the jungle slaps right here for instance again This actually has some defined geometry and the way this stuff combines is really really elegant in my opinion Like there’s a there’s a lot of stuff where I feel like there’s too much Detail and regular Minecraft almost but being able do stuff like this. I have to used to some really in my opinion It’s like beautiful Like it’s actually like playing around with building blocks minecraft Some of the blocks you could argue a to detailed and it’s not really building blocks It’s like this kind of artsy thing Whereas this you can do some really strange things in my opinion that look way more Focused on the actual art and the actual intent of whatever and but again personally, I really liked it I think there’s something just about this that just intrigues me and it draws my eye and it makes me really again start to appreciate what You can really do with just the geometry alone If you if you don’t focus on the textures in terms of oh, yeah well the brick looks like this for that reason and this looks like that that reason if you just want to have different colored basic blocks this texture pack is really good because it turns every single block into a basic block if we look at for Instance the the purple wool purple wool is just a solid purple block looks way better default one so pink wool looks amazing I mean, obviously we have concrete’s do that now But you get the basic point if we grab some concrete, it’s gonna look fairly similar I imagine actually but yet basically if we grab like a some some glazed terracotta to get a point drink here Although they look vaguely similar to each other. In fact, this might be the same Oh, no, you can see the texture is a little bit different but like every block looks amazing. Every block looks simple So simple builds look great And the other thing that looks great is You know the fact that you can see everything in its default Geometry how you’re meant to see it instead of focusing on all these details that you’re not really there to see you can see everything For what it truly is in Minecraft You can see that sheep, you know, the pigs are really just these you know They’re rectangles. They’re rectangles that have things on them. You can see that grass is just this square block You can see that chickens look like this which is honestly quite concerning which means you can appreciate the color more when it’s there But you can also play the game a lot easier you can focus on the core details So if you’re doing something like speedrunning in Minecraft for instance I think this texture pack adds a lot of value to allow you to focus on what? Really matters in this texture pack you only see what is actually there You see the only hitbox that’s actually there in the fact that it’s all the same And the fact you seeing everything is exactly the same. It’s not a huge advantage to even the speedrunners and stuff But the fact that there is some advantage in looking at the world. Everything is so simplistic You can instantly tell apart blocks because they’re exactly you know They’re purely different like they’re all based colors. If you if you find somebody who thinks Minecraft is overwhelming this nice pack does really provide something However, let’s talk about some of the funny things about it because I’ve made a good argument for and against it now let’s talk about why you probably wouldn’t ever use this text pack for an extended period of time and it’s the fact that Every texture is 1 x 1 you might be like, yes toy cat It’s a 1 x 1 texture pack we get the point but for instance if we look at the creative menu as you can see Every single thing is even the building block if that’s the default texture or it’s a 1 x 1 icon So these are meant to be sprites 64 x 64 if I’m not mistaken For things like a sapling But because the 1 x 1 texture back the dead bushes this orange thing and trying to work out What’s what in my inventory? This is a water bucket as you can see very little – We’re surrounded by grass, its seems! It seems as you can see very realistic water bucket, and she does make water if nothing else, but it’s super super strange This is eggs Like seriously and look at look at them when you actually throw them like there’s a lot of really really Strange things about this that make it basically unplayable This is these are wheat seeds as you can see looking very realistic right there and having everything look exactly the same When you’re holding it isn’t quite so useful having your for instance Let’s pronounce a sword for instance having our golden pickaxe look exactly the same as our clock or something It’s it’s not so useful. Also. The clock doesn’t actually function as a clock as you can probably imagine and the golden pickaxe like I mean There’s a lot of ridiculousness in how all these textures are done how all this stuff works. Look at this I I love it But it’s also ridiculous and entirely non-functional and this gets even worse when we move on to stuff like armor enchanted books like seriously They’re all the same because we try to put on some armor. I did get some earlier Let’s put on our diamond boots as you can see diamond boots because it’s using the maximum of the texture it just goes all the way up your legs, which looks Ridiculous, I mean beautifully ridiculous, but still ridiculous if we put on a, you know, some leggings for instance they go all the way up to there because again like they just That’s the max they can cover so the texture pack does and if it on a diamond helmet your head just goes diamond So yeah have you ever wanted to look like this minecraft like where it have you wanted to wear like Minecraft armor but you’ve always thought, you know what, I don’t like the my arms are covered I kinda want a short sleeve shirt and you don’t use any other texture pack the one by one texture pack might be for you But the realistic practicality for this is like if you’re speedrunning and you really don’t care about details You really just want to focus on what’s there what you can actually interact with Then this texture pack really is is the one for you there’s a lot of Really wonderful things about it that you might be able to like and although they have really tiny benefits in exchange for the huge downside For some people those downsides don’t exist. Some people like myself when you go mining It’s not about the prettiness of the stone block you really you know You’re only there because you want to see what ore and what’s not and again It’s in this text pack. For instance. If we dig down or start a new world or something, also look at the skeletons I just mentioned every muscle every every mob is like this So this is a skeleton again much easier to see you don’t need to care about the detail You just need to see them every single pixel that is sometimes transparent is turn non transparent for this which means everything is more visible Oh, this is granite for instance You can easily tell us so we dig down in fact if we go to Gamemode 4 which now speak you have to type it all the way out, which is terrible these days but if we go down to a cave for instance You can see how lava much easier and clearer to see you can see how like finding ores for instance It’s really really easy to spot them because they’re all gonna be the same color and there’s something about that That is wonderful. Again the speedrunners or people who are just like trying to be efficient I don’t know everyone who is like efficiently playing the game has to be a speedrunner But it is something that just has to be worth mentioning Also, actually I .. I .. I’m not a hundred percent sure that they did change the ore textures now I realize like I didn’t actually check all of them individually. So maybe maybe the ores are just like go into the wall We we don’t get to find them. I guess in the end we’d probably find out is to go back into creative. So game mode Creative and we’re gonna do one last check and just see for sure If the ores are actually all the same color because that’d be the final nail in the coffin I know they are all pretty much the same color as the wall around them Yeah, okay, you can see a slight difference. But still it’s next to impossible to find them I probably be all the same color But I guess I got that confused with another 1 x 1 texture pack. Because there are quite a few out there and they all do have slightly different things in it some of these ores might be more valueble Than others some of them don’t go as extreme and purist as this one again This is most pure form of one by one Everything is just in its lowest resolution possible and maybe that’s something you like But ya know I really think 1 x 1 texture packs are a beautifully strange concept There’s something about them, that I like there’s just something like it’s looking looking around it all of this It’s um, it’s there’s something about this that’s hard not to be chomped by but there’s also enough popular. That’s hard That’s a little bit disgusted like oh my god just can’t deal with this and it really depends on where the line between those two things as to you maybe I’ve just found your favorite text pack or maybe now after seeing this you have a new appreciation for 128 by 128 textures because after seeing that amazing ghast and all those other things from last video Maybe saying this makes you realize that oh, yeah minecraft A lot of the detail isn’t textures and maybe this also helps you appreciate textures now The game’s better because honestly for the longest time and even to this day I never see texture quality in games people always complain like all there’s some texture popping and mapping going on here I never spot it personally, you know like I’ve never seen the quality of textures to be a big Bubba But for some people it is and now you can understand why by lowering everything to minimum So I hope you all enjoy this video because you know One of the best ways to prove any point is to take it to its radical extreme. And in this case the most radical Extremist texture pack you can imagine. So yeah. I hope you enjoyed the video Like if you liked it, share if you liked it, make sure you hit the bell to see more videos daily your homepage Thank you very much watching this video and I’ll see you ne – Next time this is so ridiculous.
