Please forward this error screen to 198. This article is about creating resource packs for the Java Minecraft survival griefing servers. 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. You may be warned that changing a file name extension could make the file unusable. If you can’t see file extensions, you can turn them on by going to the View menu of the file explorer and checking the check box for file name extensions. You can leave the description or you can change it to something more exciting.

If you decide you need something with fancy characters, you can look up the code for it here. Say you want to use the letter thorn: Þ. Just make sure you use a backslash and not a forward slash. We won’t go into specifics about the format now, but be aware about how things are laid out. Be very careful not to forget quotation marks, colons, and curly or square brackets. Missing one of these can lead to your resource pack not working correctly! Now we are ready to test it out in game!

Launch Minecraft and open the options, then click on Resource Packs. If you don’t see your pack in game, make sure your pack. Remember for each open brace, quotation, or square bracket, you must have a closing brace, quotation, or square bracket. As you may have noticed, our pack does not have an icon! If you do not specify an icon, a grayscale icon will show up next to your pack.

In the image editor of your choice, create a new image with a size of 128 by 128 pixels. Once you have the correct canvas size, draw whatever you want your icon to be. Save it into the same folder that we put our pack. Now that we have our resource pack set up, let’s modify the creepers texture! However, before we can do some painting, we need to set up the folder structure that Minecraft expects resource packs to be in. Copy the creeper texture from the Vanilla Minecraft resource pack into our newly created creeper folder.

Note: You will need to use a file archiver, such as 7zip, to extract the files for the Vanilla textures. Now that we have the normal creeper texture, open it up in the image editor of your choice. You might notice your texture looking small, make sure to zoom in on the texture. Sometimes you may want to change one of the Minecraft models. Here is a quick and easy way on how to do it. A 3D Modeling Editor like opl’s Model Creator or Blockbench. You can use other modeling editors but it is recommended to use this because it is easier to use and can export to .

A ZIP viewer like WinRAR for Windows. Other ZIP viewers can be used but this can view JAR files as well. Because the default ladder in Minecraft isn’t 3D, you can replace it with your own model. Open the Minecraft JAR file using a ZIP viewer of your choice.
