You will learn how to:
  • Change your sun and moon to be bigger and brighter,
  • Change the splasheso That goofy yellow text that appears next to the minecraft logoo to compliment your stunning appearance, and
  • Make your custom icon appear instead of the orange Mojang Logo at Startup.

Getting to the Modding Area
  1. To start off, we need to go to the minecraft.jar file.
  2. Go to Start, click on Run and enter o %appdata%o
  3. Click on /.minecraft/ and look for a /bin/ folder.
  4. Right click on o minecraft.jaro and choose to open it with WinRAR or 7-Zip.

Editing the Sun and the Moon
  1. Click on the folder /terrain/
  2. You will see o moon.jpgo and o sun.jpgo
  3. You can edit them with programs like GIMP, Photoshop, or even MS Paint.
  4. Note: An image that is rightside up in the morning will be upside down at night.
  5. The larger the sun or moon is, the brighter the landscape will be.
  6. My minecraft has a smiley face as the sun. Be creative!


Editing Splashes
  1. Go back to your minecraft.jar and open the folder /title/.
  2. Find the file o splashes.txto and edit that with Notepad for Windows or Gedit for Linux.
  3. The format is simple. Each line is a splash, and it goes in order top to bottom.
  4. I edited mine to say o Nils is cool!o , because I decided to be honest.

Nils IS Cool

Customizing the Startup Mojang Logo
  1. Go Back to the /title/ folder.
  2. Look for mojang.png
  3. Edit with your favourite image editor
  4. Note: The colours are indexed, meaning you can only use the 4 colours of the Mojang logo. Use GIMP or Photoshop to change this.
  5. Save to archive, run Minecraft.
  6. Revel in your minecraft mastery.
