[Guide] Minecraft Resources Installation (Texture Packs, Mods, Shaders)
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:
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.
Flow's HD 128x Texture Pack: http://www.flowshd.com/vanilla.html
Shaders Mod: http://www.minecraft...ted-by-karyonix
Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders (SEUS): http://www.minecraft...e-shaders-v10-1
Now you will have the file, this one is called 1.8flowshd.zip.
Notice: Flow's HD 128x is for Minecraft 1.8. The 64x version is still for Minecraft 1.7.10 at this time.
Navigate to your .minecraft folder. It is just called minecraft for Mac OS X. Linux is still .minecraft.
The folder location is:
Windows: C:\Users\<Your Username>\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft
Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft
Visit this page for more information.
Now navigate to the resourcepacks folder. Cut and paste your zip file that you downloaded to that folder.
Now you will need to launch Minecraft. Go to Options... and then Resource Packs...
You will see the Available and Selected Resource Packs.
Move the one you want to use from Available to Selected by clicking on the arrow that appears when you hover or that pack.
That's it! Click Done and it should load the texture pack.
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.
You can download the one for either 1.8.1 or 1.8.0, or both. The OptiFine 1.8.0 HD U B6 version works with Shaders Mod so you can use both at once. This will allow you to use Shaders and also get a performance boost to help increase FPS.
Notice: At the time of writing this guide, the C1, C2, and C3 versions of OptiFine have been released but ShadersMod has not been updated to account for them yet so I will be using the B6 version.
You could download from their website or check the forum thread for more information.
Once you have the file, just run it. Click Install and it should tell you if it installed successfully.
In order to have OptiFine be in effect, you have to used the new profile that it has created. When you launch Minecraft, you should see it has created a new profile called OptiFine.
I recommend renaming this to 1.8 OptiFine or 1.8.1 OptiFine to distinguish them if you install multiple versions.
You can download Shaders Mod for non-Forge and Minecraft 1.8: http://www.minecraft...d-1-8-installer
Once you have the ShadersMod-v2.4.6mc1.8-installer.jar file, run it.
WARNING: Make sure you have the version of Minecraft you are installing the mod for. To ensure this, open the launcher create a new profile. Name is 1.8 Minecraft or something and use release 1.8 for the version. Launch 1.8 and then quit game after it's done loading, close the launcher as well. Make sure the game and launcher are closed before installing this mod.
Click OK through the options that come up. It should tell you when it is finished.
Now you can move down to the Shaders (Packs) section for installing different shader packs.
I will be using SEUS shaders for example. There are various others.
Go to the forum page linked above and scroll down until you see the downloads like in the picture below. Download the version you want, the options are: Standard, Ultra, Ultra DOF, Ultra Motion Blur. You can test them all to see what your computer can handle or what version you like.
You should get a file like SEUS-v10.1-Ultra.zip or the names for your versions.
Navigate to your Minecraft directory again. There should be a shaderpacks folder. Move the .zip file(s) into that folder.
Now open the version of Minecraft with the Shaders installed. It should be a profile called 1.8-ShadersMod. Go to Options... then Shaders and you should see them listed there. Select the one you want and click Done.
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.

Does anyone else here listen to K-pop?
I'm so ronery.
Or maybe C-pop/J-pop?
I used to be a crazy fan in high school, but now I just follow somewhat casually. This is my equivalent of an anime obsession for some of you out there .
I guess I'll make some questions to start us off. We can also discuss comebacks and such later on.
1. How did you find out about K-pop(C-pop/J-pop)?
2. Favorite groups/artists/members.
3. Your journey. (I've been through many phases, idk about you guys)
4. Anything else you want to mention.
(Sorry if it's overwhelming, don't worry about it. This is for people just getting into K-pop or confused by the terms that may show up in this thread.)
bias = favorite member in all of K-pop or in a group (I don't actually use this term or know how to)
group = the standard K-pop unit that usually consists of 5 members on average, there are some with less or more
sub-unit = a unit created from certain members of the main group, they usually have a different style/promote different music than the original group
leader = usually, but not necessarily, the oldest member in the group, given more responsibilities, looks after other members
maknae = the youngest member in a group
comeback = when a group/artist has a new album or release and they promote it on the Korean music programs
Big 3 = S.M., YG, and JYP are the three largest companies
ent = abbreviation for Entertainment company, such as SM Ent, YG Ent, and JYP Ent
sasaeng fans = crazy, stalker fans that try to follow their idols and interrupt their private lives, some not considered fans as they even try to harm these celebrities
spazz(ing) = being generally hyper/crazy and excited when discussing a topic
oppa = older male for a female, big brother
unnie = older female for a female, big sister
hyung = older male for a male, big brother
noona = older female for a male, big sister
saranghae(yo*) = I love you, to love
annyeong(haseyo*) = hello, greeting
*makes it more polite
Group Name Acronyms/Descriptions:
SNSD = So Nyeo Shi Dae (Korean)/ Shojo Jidai (Japanese) / Girls' Generation (English) / meaning is "The generation of girls' domination has come." / often shortened to SoShi
TVXQ/DBSK = Tong Vfang Xien Qi (Chinese) / Dong Bang Shin Ki (Korean) / Tohoshinki (Japanese) / roughly translates to "Rising Gods of the East"
2NE1 = pronounced "to anyone" or "twenty one" / meaning is "21st century" or "new evolution"
f(x) = mathematical function, 'f' is for "flower" and 'x' is for "X chromosome"
T-ARA = pronounced "tiara"
My little sister (learning Korean and also a huge K-pop fan)
Feel free to correct me or add suggestions, I don't actually know Korean.
Have anything else fun to add? Let me know!
1. I was a sophomore in high school when some Facebook friends were changing their profile pictures to their favorite SNSD members. I didn't know what it was at the time so I asked my friend about it. It turns out she was a big K-pop fan already (mainly Super Junior). I think the first song I ever heard/watched was Chocolate Love by Girls Generation, which is actually an LG phone commercial. I only knew Girls' Generation and Super Junior (probably just Sorry, Sorry) at the time. From then on I was hooked of course.
Favorite groups and members:
Girls' Generation/TTS: Seohyun
Super Junior: Kyuhyun
After School/Orange Caramel: Kaeun/Uee/Raina
Nine Muses: Pyo Hyemi
Crayon Pop: Soyul
Fiestar: Cao Lu/Linzy
Hello Venus: Yooyoung
Others: 2NE1, IU, TVXQ, Girl's Day, 2PM, 2AM, AOA, BoA, PSY, Lee Hi, Akdong Musician, Secret, B.A.P, BESTie, 4minute, TEEN TOP, MBLAQ, Block B, Dal Shabet, Davichi, Wonder Girls, Ladies' Code, Sistar, T-ARA, G.NA, Son Dambi
I'm probably forgetting a bunch more.
3. At first all I knew were artists from the Big 3: SM, YG, and JYP. Well actually, mostly just SM at first. Girls' Generation and Super Junior were first like I mentioned earlier. I would spazz about stuff with my friend a lot. Apparently I had an IU phase according to her. I had an After School phase like junior/senior year of high school, the sub-unit Orange Caramel too. Freshman year of college I had a Nine Muses phase. I've been listening to Epik High a lot in college (with some Eminem in there as well lol). Now I'm following Hello Venus.
4. Feel free to add me K-pop fans! Or anyone else.
