The Faithful resource pack is a classic, which all other texture packs in its category are compared to. This is not only because Faithful was one of the first of its kind, but also because it succeeds so thoroughly at its singular goal: upscaling the default textures to double the resolution, while keeping everything that Minecraft players love about the default game. In fact, the creator of Faithful touts this pack as “the most popular texture pack in the world”. While this is a hard claim to verify, it’s undeniable that Faithful has become a staple in the the Minecraft community in a way few other packs manage.
While many other default-style texture packs aim to improve upon Minecraft’s textures by adding their own unique twist – for example, more naturalistic textures in the case of Epic Adventures, or more smooth and vibrant textures in the case of the CreatorPack – Faithful instead attempts to retain as much from the original textures as possible, keeping the original color pallet and style. Therefore, realism isn’t necessarily increased over the default textures, despite the striking increase in detail. Some may find this approach underwhelming, but for others, this is the perfect balance. It therefore comes highly recommended to anyone who already like how Minecraft looks.
Faithful was originally developed by a user known as Vattic, who later stopped development of the pack. Various other users have continued the work of updating this classic pack – we have decided to link to the Classic Faithful 32x version here, due to being feature-complete, high-quality, and with better ethics than the more widespread version.
Faithful supports Minecraft Java versions ranging from 1.8 to 1.18, in addition to Minecraft Bedrock (although the Bedrock version is still experimental)
