Are you having trouble with finding files for everything to make a texture pack? Well, I'm here with a blog post to tell you that those troubles are over! I can get you all of the files that are necessary to making a great texture pack!

Let's start with PC:
Go to start, and click run (or if using a different version use search) and type %appdata% when this is typed, you should get to a folder called Roaming. So, go to Roaming/.minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar

Go to User/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar

PC: Open minecraft.jar with a program like WinRaR or 7Zip or anything relevant to those products.

Mac: Right click on minecraft.jar (control+click) and go to open with/Archive Utility

You are going to find these folders (Achievement, Armor, Art, Environment, Font, GUI, Item, Misc, Mob, Terrain, and Title) as well as the files (pack.png, pack.txt, particles.png, and terrain.png)

If you cannot find these files, download my Texture Pack Template at www.dropbox.com/s/fnqi9rk8y8gdwuz/Texture Pack Template.zip

Now that you have all of these files, you now need a pixel editor

PC: GIMP and PAINT.NET work great. Find paint.net at www.paint.net and find gimp at www.gimp.org

Mac: Using GIMP is good, but I recommend Pixen. pixenapp.com/ or get it directly off of the Mac App Store.

Now, go into ANY file and right click and open it with your pixel editor.

That's it. Have fun editing!

This is absolutely useless to those who have a lock on their computer so they cant install things.

If you cannot download anything, you cannot make one. Sorry for the inconvenience.
