The Discovery Update is nearly here, bringing with it a wealth of mystery for you to uncover! Hunt secret stashes of loot with minecraft secret block’s maps! Venture into the menacing woodland mansions!

Journey beyond the veil of life and return once more with the Totem of Undying! But there are greater treasures still — made by the amazing Minecraft community and made easily available to you through the all new Marketplace. For the first time, Pocket and Windows 10 players can browse, download and play cool community creations from within the game itself. The idea is to give Minecraft creators another way to make a living from the game, allowing them to support themselves in the creation of ever-greater projects, while giving Pocket and Windows 10 players access to a growing catalogue of fun stuff — curated and supplied by us, safely and simply. To make all this happen, we’re introducing Minecraft Coins which you can buy using in-app purchases on your device. Coins let creators set flexible prices and take their share of what they sell. We’re currently talking with our platform partners about how to make this happen, so stay tuned.

We’ll have a public beta launching on Android in mid-April. This will focus on testing the new Minecraft Coins, so you won’t see any creator content in the beta, but we’ll add that when we launch later in Spring. Let us know what you think! Look out for articles on our amazing launch partners, too. There’s lots of awesome stuff to discover! This article is about creating resource packs for the Java Edition. Note: This tutorial should take around 1 to 1.

Resource packs can modify textures, models, animations, music sounds, user interfaces, and languages. There are some things that you should not do before creating a resource pack. Do anything that violates Mojang’s terms of use for Minecraft. Release Minecraft versions or modifications that allow you to play without having bought Minecraft from Mojang. Release the decompiled source code of Minecraft in any way. Start off by navigating to our resourcepacks folder.

To find the folder, you must first locate the Minecraft folder. The first thing we need to do is create a pack. This lets Minecraft know that the folder is a resource pack and it also allows you to customize the description that appears when you’re selecting which resource pack to use in the game. To create an MCMETA file, right click in the ‘Tutorial_Resource_Pack’ folder and create a new text document. Any text editor should work but the suggested is a text editor using some sort of programming IDE. FREE, text editor with syntax highlighting for lots of programming languages.
