[Guide] Minecraft Resources Installation (Texture Packs, Mods, Shaders)

 

Introduction

Here is a quick guide to show you how to install texture packs and shaders in Minecraft. I know there are probably countless threads and videos on other forums, especially the Minecraft forums, but this is just a quick and simple version for us Codexians. I was motivated to make this by this thread/post and I hope it helps!

I am adding images and will make a video soon.

 

Things covered in this guide:

  • Texture Packs
  • Mods: OptiFine and Shaders Mod
  • Shader Packs

 

WARNING: The current version of Minecraft as of posting this is 1.8.1. This guide will be using resources that are for 1.8 and 1.8.1 so not everything will be compatible with clients or servers that are newer.

Some things made for 1.8.x will be compatible for other updates within the major update of 1.8.x.

Mods

For different mods, the instructions will be different. These instructions are mainly for installing OptiFine and Shaders Mod to increase performance and be able to use shaders.

I recommend that you refer to each mod's own forum thread on the Minecraft forums for more detailed instructions on how to install and use them.

 

Notice: These will create new profiles in the launcher and you need to use the profiles with ones you want installed.

Let me know if you have any comments or questions! If there is something you would like added or feel is important, feel free to suggest.

I haven't even read it and you rock.  Thank you thank you thank you.  May have questions in a few minutes.  But still.  Thank you for doing this!


Hmmm.  I followed your exact instructions for the Flows (except I opted for 64 instead of 128) and it's in with the others I frequently use, but when I open Minecraft, it doesn't show.

Which OS do you have and version of Minecraft you are using? So you put the zip in the resourcepacks folder but it's not showing up while others do?

Judging from the file name, 1.7.10_flows_hd_64x.zip, it looks like it's for Minecraft 1.7.10. I'm not sure if it works with other versions.

Awesome guide! :D Yep might want to specifically indicate anything that is specifically for any version prior to 1.8.1, as the Neocodex server that many of us participate on only functions for folks using the newest version anyway.

Weird, the version of Flow's HD that I used is compatible with the server...

Oh never mind, I just realised Heather was trying to use the 64x pack. I used 128x.

Yeah I noted some parts in the guide while making it. I'll definitely go back and detail it some more though.

Yeah Flow 128x, which you use I believe, is 1.8 so it should be compatible with updates 1.8.x but the 64x version which Chameleon used is 1.7.10 so it may not be compatible. I'm not completely sure on that though.

 

@Chameleon, try the 128x pack and if that works then it's just that the 64x version doesn't work with 1.8 yet.

Well then I'm guessing that Minecraft version doesn't have anything with being able to use it...hmmm I wonder what is going on with @Chameleon's attempt to use it then? I haven't messed with it but may later to see if I have issues with it or not.

I found it is a hell of a lot less laggy on the server for me using it. I think Chroma Hills is just that detailed that it saps a lot of memory. Reckon I'll switch back to it at some point, but I'm loving the 'modern' look.

I definitely want to give it a try then, anything that helps reduce lag is definitely worth a shot. :D

Maybe we could add a list of popular texture packs and shaders or just ones that you guys like and use.

However you'd prefer to do it! :) I actually have a habit of testing out various packs off and on...it's just kind of fun to do.

I have no idea why it does what it does for you man (if it still is doing what it did before?)

I'm not even going to mess with shaders (it slows things down for me anyway), so we can be shadeless together.  :lol2:

Maybe the computer can't run them or there are mod incompatibilities. Do you have any other mods installed and which method did you use?

Flow was Strat's recommended texture pack from the other thread. That's good though! I'm not using any atm since my laptop can't handle it. I really need to get back to my desktop haha. I like Ovo's Rustic or John Smith's Legacy.

Ovo's Rustic is very nice, I keep that one around, but Chroma Hills is my VERY fave.

Non-Forge and no other mods installed :/

 

Edit: I've run other mods before but this one always fails for me.
