Faithful 1x1 [1.4] [Novelty]

This is a novelty texture pack that is just 1x1. It is easier for Minecraft to render low-res texture packs than the normal 16x16, for so since it's 1x1 it should be the easiest for Minecraft to render. So, supposedly it might reduce lag for the same reason that hi-res texture packs increase lag.

The reason blocks like mushrooms, flowers, and torches look like squares is because each block in the terrain.png is only one pixel. I could upscale it and make them not look like squares, but that would defeat the entire point of this texture pack, which is the pure novelty of it being 1x1. Mobs also are only one color and have no faces. If you want a texture pack that doesn't look like crap, Faithful 1x1 is not for you. Still, I'm trying my best to make this texture pack look as good as a 1x1 texture pack possibly can. (Which still isn't very good.)

NOTE: Glass is opaque. That's another downside of being 1x1, is that you can't include both opaque and transparent pixels since you can only have one. It still has some alpha transparency

This texture pack uses textures from Ozfer's abandoned 1x1 texture pack, which I got permission to do.

Unlike all the other 1x1 texture packs, I plan to update this texture pack periodically, which should be easy to do since it is only 1x1.

Do use this texture pack if:
  • You're like me and hoard texture packs of all resolutions, particularly ones based off vanilla Minecraft graphics
  • You want to see what Minecraft would look like if the graphics were so bad that there couldn't be any details
Don't use this texture pack if:
  • You don't want Minecraft to look like absolute crap
  • You just want a texture pack that looks simple. There are many other texture packs with a higher resolution that fulfill this aesthetic better than can be done in 1x1 resolution.
  • You want to be able to see through glass
I made this texture pack because I like to collect faithful texture packs of all resolutions. There've been some 1x1 packs in the past but the creators eventually stopped updating them. I will continue to update this one so that texture pack hoarders can rest easy. There's always the possibility that I am the only one in the world who cares enough to hoard faithful texture packs and would look at his collection and say "Hey, where's 1x1?" Even if that is the case, I will continue to update this texture pack for my own sake, and because it takes no effort so I might as well take the five minutes I need to do so.

Here are other faithful texture packs that are being updated that I have found:

Blizzard's 4x4
Vattic's 32x32
Affinite's 64x64

1x1 can't look good at all. Nothing has shape. Or any detail. It just a coloured square.

Delete this now, there are so many simple packs out there and anyone can make them.

In the history of Minecraft texture packs there have been many 1x1 texture packs, but everyone just gave up on them eventually. I'm not going to do that, I'm going to keep it alive so that people with a compulsion to collect texture packs of every resolution (like me) will never have to be sad because nobody made one for the latest version. As a "simple" pack this one is lackluster, I agree, simplicity is better conveyed in other resolutions like 16x16 and even 8x8. I still try my best to make it look good for a 1x1 pack, though. Most people probably won't be interested in this texture pack.

You literally cannot make a 1x texture pack look good -_-

In my eyes, its more on just getting good colors in. I may just make a 1x1 texture pack for fun that just bases around having good colors.

This... Does not really have good colors, im sorry :P

You see that green button with the plus? You dont have to click it, and I am not gonna force you to do it.

Although 1x1 packs are horrible, I do love your reason for it

I really like the colors ! But it's so sad that torch and others objects are simple squares =/

Good job for your motivation x)

you know that, although you colored the entire block the same colour, the texture pack is still technically 16x16. this will not reduce lag, it will only be ugly.

Interesting idea, though a bit overkill.

I think this is the worst texture anybody can use.
Your experience while playing won't even be called an "experience"
considering the fact that the textures being used are dull and boring. <_<
