The Calamity Texture Pack
Here’s one of the more comprehensive packs available for Terraria Journey’s End. The Calamity Texture Pack improves vanilla sprites and updates them to higher-quality, more eye-pleasing versions. There are over one thousand sprites for tiles, weapons, and bosses. You can visit their Discord here for more updates and discussion.
Better Ambiance Texture Pack
Here’s a texture pack that’s a bit different than some of the others. What started as a texture pack to make the game more vibrant, the Better Ambiance Texture Pack evolved far beyond that. You will notice new water textures, a more detailed background (especially in the Ocean Biome), and a brighter and more detailed sky.
PRIME Texture Pack
The PRIME Texture Pack by CoconutAdam includes over 700 textures and has one of the most active communities out of all the packs we’ve seen thus far. It is the second-most complete texture pack behind Calamity and aims to keep the vanilla feel of Terraria while making subtle changes to improve the aesthetic.

For Minecraft fans out there, you can use this texture pack to feel a little more like home. The Minecraft Texture Pack for Terraria aims to make the game look more like Minecraft while still keeping true to the vanilla game. It has an active developer and is updated regularly.
