First time here?
Please read the ENTIRE post to the best of your ability if you wish to submit a resource pack!
Last updated March 6th, 2013
Note: All texture packs for versions 1.5 or higher will not be backwards-compatible unless specified.
Also note: The phrases Texture Pack and Resource Pack are used interchangeably. Prior to 1.5, packs could only modify the game's appearance. Now, they include sound features.
The texture packs list will be updated whenever new major (e.g. 1.4, 1.5) versions of Minecraft are released. Because of this, some packs may appear to be outdated on the list - however, check the texture pack topic, as chances are they have updated in the meantime. New packs will be added as they are submitted.
If your texture pack has been updated to a later version of Minecraft or discontinued entirely, please let us know via private message and we will update your submission accordingly. Texture packs over 3 versions behind the current Minecraft update will be move to the archive and eventually deleted.
Move 1.4 packs to the archive and delete older ones.
**1.8 will be out soon. TP authors, PM me to update your list entry in advance.**

When submitting a texture pack to this list, please follow these simple rules.
- You must be the original creator of the texture pack, or have explicit permission from the creator, in order to submit it.
- A texture pack may not be submitted if it contains stolen textures, such as remakes of the Painterly pack (use this thread for Painterly Packs).
- X-Ray, "wire-frame," etc. texture packs are immediately disqualified.
- Simple packs are generally not going to be added to the list either, unless they are exceptional or for low-resolution.
- Images must be hosted on Imgur or similar sites.
- W.I.P. packs must be at least 60% finished before being submitted, or should at least have a completed terrain.png.
- If your pack has multiple editions, such as a 16× and 32× version, then your pack will be listed under the lowest resolution available. If you wish, you may specify which resolution you want the pack displayed under instead.
- To submit a pack, use the following template.

Some texture packs may have the following next to the preview image.
Work in Progress / Incomplete: This pack is under development, or has changed files not including terrain.png.
Basic support: Supports features included in MCPatcher and Optifine only.
Advanced Support: Supports mods that have new content, such as IC2, Buildcraft, or EE3.
Popular Pack: The texture pack has many downloads and/or reputation points.
Tiny Textures – Low-resolution (8× and less) texture packs create retro, bright, simple felling
16×16 Textures – Default resolution of Minecraft, with a wide range of themes from simple to medieval.
32× Textures – The first step in HD texture packs, doubling the size can really increase the detail and potential.
64× Textures – Increasing realistic potential, this resolution is the middle ground between realism and pixel art.
128× Textures – Walking the fine line between bitmap and vector, these textures are very detailed and require above-average computer power.
Ultra HD Textures – Full HD experience and the most detail, each block having 256× or higher dimensions. Require a good gaming rig.
TP Archive - Texture packs more than three Minecraft versions behind the current update.
