This article is about creating minecraft servers resource packs for the Java Edition. Note: This tutorial should take around 1 to 1. Resource packs can modify textures, models, animations, music sounds, user interfaces, and languages.
The first thing we need to do is create a pack. This lets Minecraft know that the folder is a resource pack and it also allows you to customize the description that appears when you’re selecting which resource pack to use in the game. To create an MCMETA file, right click in the ‘Tutorial_Resource_Pack’ folder and create a new text document. Any text editor should work but the suggested is a text editor using some sort of programming IDE.
FREE, text editor with syntax highlighting for lots of programming languages. You may be warned that changing a file name extension could make the file unusable. If you can’t see file extensions, you can turn them on by going to the View menu of the file explorer and checking the check box for file name extensions. You can leave the description or you can change it to something more exciting. If you decide you need something with fancy characters, you can look up the code for it here. Say you want to use the letter thorn: Þ.
Just make sure you use a backslash and not a forward slash. We won’t go into specifics about the format now, but be aware about how things are laid out. Be very careful not to forget quotation marks, colons, and curly or square brackets. Missing one of these can lead to your resource pack not working correctly! Now we are ready to test it out in game! Launch Minecraft and open the options, then click on Resource Packs. If you don’t see your pack in game, make sure your pack.
