For a Mac tutorial, click here.
What you'll need:
-Paint.net/Photoshop/GIMP (I use Paint.Net, and the tutorial will be using Paint.Net)
-Either a fresh Minecraft.jar, or another texture pack. (I am in no way telling you to upload any content that isn't completely made by you! I am telling you to use somebody else's pack a referrence, not as your own.)
-An idea or a theme. That can be, medieval, RPG, space, etc.
-Actual Minecraft game, to test the pack in-game.
-You MAY need some experience in other texturing or spriting, but it is not necessary.
Making Minecraft Texture Packs are easy. The only issues are, how time consuming the actual process is, and whether or not you have a distinctive idea that you can continually build upon.
What to do:
Now that your first block is done, make sure it is at a standard you enjoy. From there, once recognizing all of the other blocks (or Googling/asking around), make your own version of each of them. You can follow the same, or similar techniques for all the blocks to get a uniform look in your pack.
Testing the Texture Pack in-game:
To test the texture pack in-game, take the edited terrain.png and put it into a zipped folder. I cannot stress this enough, the texture pack must be in a winzip compressed document format. After that, open your Minecraft game, and open the 'Texture Pack' section. Then, from there, open the texture pack folder by clicking the button and drag your texture pack as a .zip file into that folder. Close the folder, click on the texture pack and viola! The texture pack will indeed work in-game. Then it is only a matter of finding that block (in this case dirt, so that will be fairly easy) and seeing how well the texture tiles.
For any questions, queries or 'how the hell do I do this?', please, comment below or PM me. If you tell me the problem, I SHOULD be able to help.
