Jappa confirms resource pack for legacy textures

For those worried about the upcoming texture changes in Minecraft, likely around version 1.14, fear not! Confirmed today by Jappa, tasked with remaking the textures for the game top to bottom:

Changing the textures! Except for a few, like the Creeper. Across all versions? YEP, both on Java and Bedrock. You cannot escape my sweet, sweet textures. When? Soon! In the Beta Resource Pack, where all my beloved pixels live.

Old textures will be a separate download when the new default pack officially releases, more info to follow.

Which means if you really can’t stomach the visual changes coming to the game soon, you’ll be able to revert to classic textures with the simple download of a resource pack. Sadly, that doesn’t mean you’ll be able to escape any changes to the basic models in game. Case in point, the current horse furore which has generated endless Reddit threads and thousands of disappointed comments:
