Whenever I join Hypixel, my server, or any other server that has server resource packs... it re-downloads the resource pack completely instead of just loading from the server-resource pack folder...
I have only noticed this occur since the resource pack patches in 1.8.7
Having it re-download the resource on-login can be a problem with individuals with a slow or unstable connection....
Furthermore, after the resource pack finishes loading and is trying to enable/disable (The temporary pause between resource packs changing may kick the individual from the server)
Having to re-download the server resource pack again, after getting kicked may become tedious - and a strain on the connection...
That didn't used to be an issue much either, but I am noticing it occur more frequently within the past few updates.
Release Update: 1.8.8 is more stable and has far less kicking than 1.8.7 - but it still forces a server resource, full download instead of checking the server resource folder.
