While the world of Minecraft is an experience that can be enjoyed on its own, the many free-to-download resource packs created by the Minecraft community offer a great way of enhancing your gameplay without stripping away the key elements.
There are two main ways to shake up Minecraft, and those are to make survival more challenging, or to make it more interesting. Enhancing resource packs are a great way to introduce new challenges to your Minecraft world without impacting too much on the game mode, ensuring it’s the same old game but with cool new features. Here are a few exciting vanilla Minecraft enhancing resource packs for you to check out:

For an enhancing resource pack that gives you a variety of weird and wonderful structures to explore, look no further than Ruins. Similar to that of villages and strongholds, Ruins spawns structures randomly, ensuring each world loaded with this resource pack will be unique. You may find yourself venturing through a snow biome only to discover a huge castle high up in the sky. Feel free to explore it, though there may be mobs waiting inside. Download Ruins here.

For cave explorers, Roguelike Dungeons presents an exciting challenge filled with huge underground passages, hostile mobs, and the promise of untold riches. Above ground, large towers will spawn that may be scaled and explored, while the real fun lies underground. Just make sure you pack plenty of torches and at least one diamond sword.

Bibliocraft describes itself as a useful and aesthetically pleasing Minecraft mod, and this couldn’t be more succinct. As well as offering a visual feast, this mod opens up a world of roleplaying possibilities due to its generous amount of unique building blocks and consumable items. Take for example the simple seat block, which eliminates the need for you to use an ugly-looking wood step as a chair. Bibliocraft even boasts a cookie jar for you to keep your food in — very cool. You can download Bibliocraft here.
