Where is the "#.#.#" file?
The #s stand for the numbers of the Minecraft version you are looking in for the textures/sound/etc (i.e. 1.4.7, 1.7.2, or 1.8). If there is a version of Minecraft that is not in there, go to your Minecraft Launcher, select "New Proflie" or "Edit Profile" on the bottom left of the screen and under "Version Selection" choose the version of Minecraft you'd like to download. All versions since InDev (old_alpha) are avalible.

My sound files are not playing in-game.
Make sure your sounds folder is spelled: "sounds". Also check the sound flie you are playing is in its correct sub-folder and is in ".ogg" format.

Do I need to use Audacity to convert audio files?
No. Any software programs that can save audio files as .ogg are fine. I personally use Audacity because it is free and supports a range of audio formats.

Is there a faster way to convert all audio files at once?
To my knowledge, yes. However, the only methods I have found require buying third-party software and that is outside of my area of experience.

The FAQ doesn't answer one of my questions.
Please comment any questions and suggestions below. I will get to them as soon as I can. Feel free to answer any questions you see and know. I will expand the FAQ as questions come in.

If you have any questions or suggestions please leave them in the comments below. I will reply as soon as possible.

I have created this tutorial out of my own need to examine the contents of the Default Resource Pack and I will work to the best of my ability to provide the tools that can
benefit your Minecraft experience.

I think you are beautiful. Have a nice day!

How can i Downoad this Sh*t
I can't get my resource pack to show up in minecraft. Any leads?
Same issue here.
I think you need a pack.mcmeta and pack.png/jpg file.
You only need the pack.mcmeta, no icon just leads to a gray version of the default.

Okay I'm just trying to get into the sounds and edit them and frankly I have no clue what you're directing me to do. Any way you can help simplify this for me? Thanks.
when i open the #.#.#.zip it only has the #.#.# and nothing else i don't know what's the problem
thankyou this helped so much
I cant open the .zip folder after renaming it any way to fix?
or am i doing it wrong?
when I go into #.## I get a #.##.json folder and a #.## folder
the second one does not have .jar in the name but it says its an executable jar file and does not change when I rename it.
the #.##.json folder will change to .zip but then wont open.
yes i have the same problem too
THANK YOU! You don't even know how many sites and videos I went to before finding this. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i know right

I am in minecraft 1.9.2, I have audacity downloaded, is there a specific way that I have to have the files in? If you could make a little chart showing where everything is supposed to be, that would be great. if not, oh well. I just don't know if there have to be sub folders in the sound folder and if anything has to have specific names, Thanks!!

I'm using a windows Vista. When I try to rename the .jar file to a .zip, it makes it 1.9.zip.jar. How am I supposed to rename it, if not the normal way?

you need winrar and right click on the file and then zip and then extract to "file name" and that it extracs

Edit: I figured it out. On Windows Vista, right click on the .jar file and click "Send to:" and select Compressed (zipped) folder. This will convert it to a .zip

Erm... Well, the .zip file can't be read, but maybe I'm using the wrong program for it? Anyone know a program to use here? I don't want to have to download 7zip or anything like that. I remember that my old Windows XP could open and extract them without the need for third-party programs, so I hope Vista can do that too. I will mess around with it for a bit and see if i can uncompress it maybe?

Welp. I guess it can't be done without third-party programs sooo...
On Macs, there is a program called Archive Utility that allows you to uncompress .zip files. You could try to download that. I'm not sure if it will work on Windows, or even if you can download it, but it's worth a shot.

First of all, you need to rename the .jar file, not the .json file. Second, it does not convert it to a .zip file. For example: 1.9.jar becomes 1.9.zip.jar, which is still a .jar file.

Thank you very much for making a resource pack base! I always wanted to get started on a texture pack to see how well it goes. ^w^
This should be renamed.

Nice pictures
In my #.#.#.json file, all the sounds are sepparate. What do I do?
I'm in need of some assistance. Do you happen to know where I can find some textures for the default sets of armor in Minecraft, but IN COLOR instead of this grey version that's in the default pack? I'd greatly appreciate it if you could help with that, thanks!
For me, every armor is colored except for the leather armor. If you are wondering why the leather armor is grayscale, it is because leather armor can be dyed to any color in-game.

If you would like me to upload my models folder to dropbox, I can do that for you : )

I have now included a link to the old 1.8 resource pack file download, since 1.8 and 1.9 aren't the best of friends.
xD I like the instructions xDXDXD
I greatly appreciate this. It is going to make learning how to make a resource pack much easier.

Just to improve a tiny bit, I noticed that the download file spelled default (on MediaFire) as "defalut". I figured you would probably want to know.

Edit: I just opened My Minecraft Resource Pack, and it says that it is incompatable (made for an older version of minecraft). Since the file says 15w35e, and the top of my Minecraft says 15w36d, I assume it updated a bit, but made no real changes as far as resource packs go?  If that is all there is, what (and how) do we edit to remove the incompatability notice?

Thank you for catching that error. Spelling isn't my strentgh.

You are fine to use this resource pack in previous versions down to 1.7
The incompatable message is new to the 1.9 shapshots and okay to ignore. Game resource packs are undergoing changes.
From the https://mojang.com 15w31a release notes:
A note for resource pack authors: We have changed the format of resource packs slightly, and have support for versioning packs now. You can still use incompatible packs, it just needs extra confirmation from the user.

What is .DS_STORE
Why there is no sound

  • August 24, 2015, 5:16 pm
.DS_Store are invisible files used in Mac computers for things like icons and such. I use a Mac to create these files, and as a result a .DS_Store may show up for you. If you are using a PC it is alright to delete this file.

There should be sound files. I have checked both links and everything is up to date. If you would download again and check for a sounds file in the minecraft folder.

Wow, I watch your YouTube videos all the time, I didn't realize you did this. This is a really helpful tool for texture pack creators, good job.
This is so helpful! I have looked everywhere trying to find something like this (and have seen countless "default HD," or, "get winrar," or, "adfly sends you on infinite loop asking you to download the sponsor," etc.)
