Hello and welcome.
This tutorial was made by: Thomas_Disc and Mercy_
This tutorial will show you how to change any item's name in your Minecraft. Take note that we are using Direct Links which will NOT redirect you, they will instead download instantly. We see it as easier for you, not for us. But let's get started!

The first program and folder you will need.

The first program you'll need is called: Notepad++ - Depending on what system you're using, please download the 32-bit if you have a Windows 32-bit, and 64-bit if you have Windows 64-bit. Notice that MAC / iOs users you will need to use Coda instead.

- Notepad++ 32x Bit (Windows XP, 7, 8, 10)
- Notepad++ 64x Bit (Windows XP, 7, 8, 10)
- Coda MAC / iOs

Install Notepad++ and return to this tutorial.

Next up you will need to download Thomas-Disc 1.12 Default which we will be using for this tutorial. Keep it on your desktop for easy access, since we'll be using it in a moment.

- Thomas-Disc 1.12 Default

When the download is complete, leave the folder on your desktop until the next Chapter.

Finding and Replacing.

Right-click on the Thomas-Disc 1.12 Default.zip and click on "Extract here".
Once the folder has been extracted open it up in the following order:

  1. Open: Thomas-Disc 1.12 Default
  2. Open: assets
  3. Open: minecraft
  4. Open: lang
Inside the 'lang' folder there is a pre-made language-pack set to be the default US-english. This is also the language you will have to set your game to in-game in order to make this work.

Right-click the 'en_us.lang' file, and click on "Edit with Notepad++"
Once inside Notepad++, go to the top section of Notepad++ and find the button with binoculars (The 'Find' button) and click it.

Type in what item / block you want to find, and click Enter until you reach the block / item you're looking for.
Once you've found it ONLY change the name that comes after =


When you're done changing the name of the item, you can click on Save (The floppy disc in the left corner) and then close Notepad++

Get it into the game!

Open up your minecraft, and start with version 1.12, 1.12.1, or 1.12.2 open. This will work with any of the three 1.12 versions.
Once you're in the Minecraft menu
Open the menu's in the following order:

  1. Options
  2. Resource packs
  3. Open Resource Packs Folder
A folder will have opened up on your screen. Simply drag the Thomas-Disc 1.12 Default folder into the newly opened folder, and close it.

Inside Minecraft, go back to Options, and back into Resource packs. There will now have appeared a resource pack.
Click on the logo to turn on the resource pack.

Before you go In-game to check the Item, MAKE SURE that your language is set to English (US)

Now go in-game and search for the re-named item.
The Item will now have changed to whatever name you've given it.

Go back to Step. 2 if you forgot any items, or if you changed your mind.

That's it.
If you have any questions, leave them in the comment section below and I will answer them the best I can.

Don't like using the en_us.lang?

Most of us have other languages that we speak too, and maybe you want to change that language too. Well, as the first players in the world to do this: we scooped out all the .lang files from .minecraft/assets/objects, renamed it accordingly, and finally we've now put it up for a free download from this tutorial.

We hope you enjoyed the tutorial, and that you'll give us a diamond for the 2,5 hours we spent scooping out the .lang files.

- Download All .Lang Files
