Fresh Animations is a work in progress resource pack that gives an overhaul to entity animations in the default look of Minecraft.

The aim is to make the mobs more dynamic and believable. I take inspiration from Minecraft Dungeons and Minecraft cinematic trailers.
This will give you an idea of the look I'm going for.

Fresh Animations is a beta pack – it will be continually developed over time.

No, I cannot animate player models. It is unsupported by Optifine. 


If you have any issues loading this pack (ie: texture error with mob heads) you need to restart the game.


Animated mobs in this pack:
   Version 1.0:
  • Villager
  • Iron Golem
  • Witch
  • Vindicator
  • Evoker
  • Pillager
  • Ravager

+ Version 1.1:

  • Creeper
  • Zombie
  • Husk
  • Zombie Villager
  • Skeleton
  • Wither Skeleton
  • Illusioner

+ Version 1.2:

  • Pig
  • Wandering Trader (requires Optifine-HD-U-G8 or above)
  • Phantom
  • Blaze

    + Version 1.3:

    • Enderman
    • Squid (removed in 1.3.1)
    • Guardian
    • Elder Guardian
    • Spider
    • Cave Spider
    • Silverfish
    • Vex

    With more to come!


Texture pack compatible! (1.16.5 and lower only) Load a pack above Fresh Animations in the resource pack list.
– This doesn't support moving faces and other minor details.
– This doesn't support baby zombie heads. This needs to be included in the overlaid texture pack to work.
– Other resource packs with Optifine CEM features will override Fresh Animations CEM, removing animations.
– Some mobs are not texture pack compatible in the 1.17 version-1.3.1
– Supports Optifine Animated Entities feature.
– Supports Optifine Random Entities feature.
– Has a system for Optifine Parts to make your own add-ons.






  • Fresh Animations – Addons is an extra resource pack for additional features for Fresh Animations.
  • Load this pack above Fresh Animations to work correctly.
  • These addons are mostly suited for the vanilla look and aren't texture pack compatible.
  • Read the options.txt file in the Addons pack folder for directions and info for each addon.


You can find the add-on pack can be found under Files > Additional Files.


Game Versions:
This pack will only work with Optifine.


Optifine 1.17.x 
Optifine 1.16.x
