What is a resource pack and what is it's difference between a texture pack

1 Answer 1


A texture pack was used in previous versions of the game, prior to version 1.6.1, and only changed the in-game textures of the game.

In 1.6.1, resource packs were added, which allowed alternate sounds, music, particle effects and much more to be altered in game, in addition to modifying block, item, and entity textures.
