Minecraft resource packs provide us with a way to enjoy something that we otherwise wouldn’t get without talented and creative developers. So here’s the problem, you have a great texture pack like Glimmar’s Steampunk (as featured in the tutorial below) but you’re having a bit of trouble installing minecraft resource packs – There is no need to worry as luckily for you our minecraft experts have created this very simple guide and have even added step by step pictures to allow you to follow along with them.
To make this easier for you, we have split this up into three simple steps: The First thing you are going to have to do is open up your minecraft and click play.
Now we have minecraft up we need to click on the “options…” button to navigate to where we have to go.
Great, now we are on the options panel all we have to do now is Click the “Resource Packs…” button.
With the majority of it over, we are now going to click “Open resource pack folder”
To get your downloaded minecraft texture pack installed you will need to navigate in a different folder to where you downloaded it (In this tutorial my texture pack was downloaded to a folder within my download folder) then follow the instructions in the pictures below:
Your texture pack will now be shown in the left hand column, where you will need to click on it – This then moves it to the right hand column. Once you are sure you have completed this we need to click done.
We did it, and all in three simple steps! Before you go and enjoy your new texture pack please make sure you read the below step if you are installing a HD texture pack (Above 16 x 16)
HD Texture pack Step
If you have a HD texture pack (like Glimmar’s Steampunk ) which is 32 x 32 or more you will need to either install the minecraft mod, optifine or use MCPatcher which is shown below:
First you will need to download MCPatcher. Now once you have opened it up you can deselect the options you do not want (more selected = more processing power needed) and click the patch button.
You are now fully covered for all texture packs and can enjoy every single bit of them – If you would ever like to try some other packs you can also check out our top 10 Texture pack / resource packs
