Minecraft Alpha used to have a brighter texture. How can you apply these bright, vivid colors to today's Minecraft? I am aware that there is a Biomes O' Plenty biome which is like this, but I want it to be like this everywhere I go. Turning up the brightness does not achieve the desired effect.

How Minecraft looked back in Alpha:

    So you took a picture of a superflat world and repeaters to compare it to a lush, hilly biome??

There is a Classic Minecraft resource pack just for this reason!

Download here!

  • So is this a mod or just sounds and textures.

  • Will this work if mods are installed, or if used with a mod pack?

    @jeffreylin_ if there are items/mobs etc introduced by the mod, they will not be retextured. However, the default game textures should still be replaced.
