Texture pack is a collection of files. You use them to be able to change the textures of items, blocks, mobs and the GUI in the game. The file is usually in .zip file and they have various PNG images in them and a text document named pack.txt.
Since you use Hypixel server, you may want to use the Hypixel Skyblock texture pack as well. What are the Hypixel Skyblock texture packs that we can use? For your information, texture packs are replaced with resource packs in Java Edition 1.6.1 which provide more control over textures and other game features. You are able to convert texture packs with Mojang’s converter tool named “texture ender”. If you want to convert texture packs from before 1.5, there will be a two- steps process and it also requires a converter to convert it to 1.5 first and then the converter from 1.5 to 1.6.
With resource packs, you will add some life to custom Skyblock gear which otherwise look the same as standard gear. The resource packs which are specially made for Hypixel Skyblock are useful because they help differentiate between the same items in Vanilla Minecraft.
