For anyone who doesn't know what the (currently) new resource packs are or do this blog post should give you a little bit of an idea as to what they are and how you can make your own. Thanks for watching and feel free to Diamond, comment, favorite, and subscribe!

What you need

  • For Image editing, Paint.net, or any other image editing software is fine. Simply replace the files you want to change in the textures folder, making sure the names are EXACTLY the same.

  • For Sound editing, use the program Audacity. Simply record any new sounds you want, export them as ogg vorbis, and replace(once again making sure the names match exactly)

  • For Language files, Notepad++. Simply open the .lang files, and edit anything after the "=" signs to be what you want it to be. Also works well for any .mcmeta files.

To start your resource pack

  1. Go to: %appdata%.minecraftresourcepacks
  2. Make a folder with the name you want to use for your pack.
  3. Open notepad, paste the quoted text below and save it as pack.mcmeta inside the folder you made.
  4. Inside your folder make a new folder called "assets", open that folder and make a new folder called "minecraft".
  5. You now have a resource pack that is ready for you to add sound or texture files.

Paste this into your pack.mcmeta file:

"pack": { "pack_format": 1, "description": "Default Resource Pack"

Get Audacity here

Get Paint.net here

Get Notepad++ here

Get the default template resource pack here

Hope this helped!

Thanks for this! Really Helpful!
Thanks. This really helped.
For some reason, every time I change the mcmeta file the pack doesn't show up in the resource packs section help plz?
For textures, would pixel art apps/programs (such as Piskelapp.com) be suitable?
