The Visible Ores texture pack makes the various ore textures in Minecraft much more visually appealing. Before getting into it, though, you need the most recent version of Optifine HD for this pack to work. OptiFabric, Sodium, and other loaders are missing crucial features Visible Ores needs to work, so you’ve been warned. The glowing, emissive textures are worth the hassle, though. Even coal ore will glow with a murky, muddy, inner light. But gems like diamonds and lapis lazuli look the best, easily brightening the surrounding area when you find them mining rock. They don’t actually have a light radius, so make sure you’re packing torches when you do your looting runs.

Visible Ores works with the latest version of Minecraft, with compatibility back to 1.15. That means it works with a great deal of shader packs and other mods, some of which haven’t been updated in years. They don’t work with Minecraft’s latest release, but you can mix and match with a lot of dated mods. It’s really a good thing, not a bad thing. Finding the perfect set of shaders will totally change your mining experience. BSL shaders are a good option if you don’t want to try a bunch, but the maker of Visible Ores recommends Complementary Shaders specifically. They used that mod while putting this resource pack together, so for the best visuals, there’s no contest.

At 16x resolution, the textures in Visible Ores are about twice as detailed as the standard, 8x textured you see in Minecraft. You should expect about twice the normal strain on your gaming system as it must do more work to render the better graphics. But if you’re already running shaders without any trouble, Visible Ores won’t give you any problems. Overall it’s a decent pack that makes mining easier. Since you spend the majority of time building or mining and resource gathering, it makes a good bit of the game easier on the eyes. There are no major bugs to speak of either, so no reason not to try it.


Let's take a look at what Visible Ores Texture Pack has to offer.
