If you want realistic textures but your computer isn’t beefy enough to handle 64 x and above resolutions, Pixel Reality might be the resource pack for you.
Pixel Reality is a 16 x resource pack that is aimed to realism. Currently, this resource pack is for Minecraft 1.7.10 and is not 100% compatible with Minecraft version 1.8.
Even though it has the same resolution as the vanilla textures, Pixel Reality looks way beyond the default textures as every detail is squeezed on the limited pixels – making it one of the most amazing 16 x resource pack.
Most items and blocks are based on items found on real life; but some things that don’t exist in real-life are still given a touch of reality. These things include the zombies, the wither, Redstone, and creepers among many others.
The Steve skin is also replaced with a semi-realistic version of Steve – and because of its limited resolution, it doesn’t really look good. But it may be the only downside of this resource pack.
Pixel Reality also features a realistic-lighting vanilla add-on called Pixel Luminance.
Pixel Luminance features a realistic shading, lighting, and colors but with darker shadows and weaker light sources than that of the vanilla. This add-on can be used along with the vanilla texture or with the Pixel Reality Resource Pack. Pixel Luminance is created to provide a shader-like experience to the players with weak PC.
Pixel Reality is a highly module resource pack and features many add-ons, making Pixel Luminance just one of its many customization options. Its add-ons include alternate brighter stone textures, alternate framed glass, and adobe stained clay.
In addition, Pixel Reality provides custom textures and mod support for the mods Underground Biome, and Underground Biome constructs.
I highly recommend this texture pack to people who like to have a more serious Minecraft look. Overall, I personally love this resource pack especially when combined to a realistic shader and aesthetic mods.
