Minecraft texture packs can be found either in the Xbox Marketplace, the Playstation Store, or various websites found on the PC. These are not universal marketplaces so the user must purchase these texture packs on the system the game is stationed.
New texture packs are made occasionally throughout the year. When looking for the most available options and variations, the PC offers many user generated packs that are unavailable on the Xbox or Playstation. Some examples include the Natural Texture Pack, the Plastic Texture Pack, the City Texture Pack, the Fantasy Texture Pack, and the Candy Texture Pack. Applicable to all platforms mentioned, the buyer must have an active Internet connection to access these individual stores and a credit or debit card to make a purchase.
The theme of the world the user has created in Minecraft can play a part in determining which packs are most suitable. When going for a more realistic look the Natural Texture Pack, the Plastic Texture Pack, and the City Texture Pack are examples that can fit best. When aiming for a fun, unrealistic approach, the user can benefit from the Fantasy Texture Pack and the Candy Texture Pack. Texture Packs are generally sold for 99 cents.
