Hello, The_Fez_Master here with another tutorial. This tutorial is on how to make a resource pack as the title suggests. First I'm going to explain what a resource pack is. A resource pack is the same as a texture pack except that it is formatted differently and it includes sound, language, music, as well as textures. And its all in vanilla minecraft.

Required Materials:
  • A computer
  • Minecraft
  • 7-zip or winrar (any program that canextracta jar file and create zip files.)
  • Paint.NET or Photoshop (any painting program that hastransparencyabilities)
  • Notepad or Textedit

  • the folder on your desktop =Your folder
  • .minecraft = your real minecraft folder
  • Your folder > assets > minecraft = inYour foldergo to assets, and in assets go to minecraft


  1. Create a new folderon your desktop
  2. Go to your versions folder (minecraft folder (How to for macandHow to for Windows))and copy 1.6.4.jar to your new folder
  3. With 7-zip or which ever program you use, extract it toYour folder
  4. Now delete everything in that folder besides the assets folder and pack.png
  5. Open up Notepad or Textedit and copy the clearly marked spoiler on the bottom of the page.
  6. Then save it as pack .mcmeta in Your Folder.Make sure you select all files for file type.
  7. Now go back into your .minecraft (the real one) > assets then copy the sound folder intoYour Folder> assets > minecraft folder
  8. Now go back toyour .minecraft (the real one) > assets, and then copy the music folder and the records folder intoYour Folder> assets > minecraft > sound.
  9. Now here is where it gets fun, editing the files, YAY. (edit any of the files, you don't have to do all)
  10. OPTIONAL, but highly recommended: Delete all files that are not changed. (This is to make the finished file smaller, and make it so it can combine with other resource packs in 1.7)
  11. With 7-zip or other program, select all the files and folders inside ofYour Folderand compress it into a .zip file.
  12. Your doe!!!!

Copy and paste this into Notepad or text edit, and save it as pack.mcmeta . Change what is in red.

Paste this:
{ "pack":{ "pack_format":1, "description":"Resource pack name" } }

If you decide to change the language, then do this in place of the above. Again you can change what is in red.
Paste this instead of above if you do language:
{ "pack":{ "pack_format":1, "description":"Resource pack name" }, "language":{ "LANG_COUNTRY":{ "name":"Your language name", "region":"Where your language is spoken", "bidirectional":false } } }

If this doesn't work then post it below and i will try to fix the tutorial

Currently the text to put in notepad or textedit is broken at the moment. I am trying very hard to fix it.

It is broken because i cannot seem to put plain text into pmc. For now here is a place to copy it from: minecraft.gamepedia.com/Resource_pack
