About BetterSounds

This pack uses complex sound randomisation methods, as well as a huge number of new sounds, to improve the various soundscapes of Minecraft.

The sound files that make up BetterSounds are taken from my main project, Caelesti which is a completely custom texture pack featuring this same list of sounds.


List of Features

  • Improved weather using a huge list of randomised rain sound effects
  • Improved lightning sound effects
  • Improved thunder sounds with differing volume and duration
  • Improved beacon sound effect with custom shut off sound
  • Classic player hurt sounds rarely playing
  • Classic door sounds playing in place of the modern door sounds 50% of the time
  • Classic bow firing sound which is separated from the snowball, egg, and similar sound effects
  • Custom crossbow sound effect
  • Custom Enderman teleportation sound effects
  • Ghast sounds have been entirely reworked, with massive reverb to add to the ambience of the nether
  • Nether portals will rarely play a distant ghast sound effect, as if the sound has slipped through the portal
  • Nether portals now only broadcast their sound in an 8-block radius
  • Custom chainmail equip sound effect
  • Realistic sounds for the chicken
  • Realistic death sound for the pig
  • Realistic and creepy sounds for spiders
