    posted a message on I need any resource pack that works with the latest snapshot please?

    Sorry. Thought that the resource packs forum was the appropriate place to post as I wasn't asking for technical help, I was asking for a 1.12 snapshot compatible resource pack - I guess I was wrong.


    Thank you for the help. I'm on Windows 10 using Notepad. Downloaded Notepad++ and will try it, however that brings me to another question; for a 1.12 snapshot compatible and hopefully 1.12 compatible when it's released pack.mcmeta file, what is the text I need to put? Is it:



    {
    "pack":{
    "pack_format":3,
    "description":"My Resource Pack"
    }
    }


    Got this off of gamepedia and says the '3' is for 1.11 - will this also work for 1.12 or do I need a different number?

    posted a message on New to MC PC - recommendations

    Congratulations! As someone who started out playing pocket edition and longing to get a laptop to play the pc version, I can say that you won't regret it! Had the PC version for over a year now and still play pretty much daily.


    Most important mod I can recommend is Optifine - by default it significantly improves framerate, and also it adds loads more performance settings plus an option for 32x render distance - even if you don't need the improved framerate it's worth using. From my limited knowledge I doubt that PC will have any trouble with shaders - although I guess it depends on your preferences, I'm happy with anything around 40fps+ whereas I've seen people that are only happy with much higher. However if my laptop with i5 processor, 8gb RAM and the 'dreaded' intel graphics hd 520 can comfortably run a water-only shader pack, I imagine your desktop will have no trouble with full shaderpacks.


    I second the Biomes o' Plenty recommendation as well. I also like a mod called Quark that's pretty minimal in comparison but adds various useful things. For navigating I recommend Xaero's minimap and Xaero's world map, which work together or separately. I've always found that with Biomes o Plenty, the default maps don't work properly, so Xaero's world map is a more than adequate stand in.


    Hope you enjoy MCPC!

    posted a message on I need any resource pack that works with the latest snapshot please?

    (Sorry for the caps, needed to attempt to make this stand out amongst all the resource pack threads)


    For some reason the only way I can get my resource pack to show up is by copying and pasting the pack.mcmeta from another resource pack - when I make my own, it shows up as a text file instead of a MCMETA file. Does anyone know a resource pack compatible with the latest snapshot that I can use the pack.mcmeta file from? I'm a bit of a resource pack newbie still so I hope I'm properly understanding how making resource packs for different versions works - my aim is for this to be compatible with 1.12 when it's released??


    Help asap really appreciated, please and thank you!

    posted a message on How to extract the default Minecraft textures?

    I remember reading a tutorial a while back that was really helpful, and I got the impression it was quite well-known. I'd like to extract all of the default textures so I can edit them one at a time - I'd also like to do the same for Biomes o Plenty and some other mods. How do I do this as simply as possible? Please and thank you!

    posted a message on Stained clay

    Am I going mad, or in the latest snapshot, has 'stained clay' been renamed 'stained terracotta'? Trying to work out if I'm just getting mixed up because I'm used to using mods or if I'm right? Please and thank you!

    posted a message on Best renderer?

    My laptop can't run shaders, but I'd like to take some pretty pictures of my world for its world download/forum posts. Can someone please recommend a good, really easy to use, renderer that can give the effect of shaders and make my world look prettier in pictures?


    Please and thank you!

    posted a message on [MAJOR UPDATE: New routes, many new buildings, and more!] Mountain Village in Savanna M Biome

    Back again! Added a post office and a police station, and expanded the train station. Coming soon: named routes and 'regions' (for want of a better word).


    Had some computer problems and lost my MC saves, so after adding the post office and police station and doing a load of work on the train station, I had to revert back to the last save file uploaded online. So I've spent the last few days rebuilding and improving upon what I'd already built - so you may notice that some things are still a little unfinished looking (AKA dodgy interiors/no interiors), but I just wanted to get it backed up online ASAP and figured I might as well share at the same time!


    Feedback really appreciated, as ever!

    posted a message on How do you summon the courage/effort/will to rebuild?

    Thanks very much for all the replies - especially those of you who suggested trying to improve it instead of just copy it from memory! Decided to go down that route, and although it's all very similar, I've improved on parts and so far so good, I think. Already rebuilt all of the important bits (as far as I can remember at least) to an extent that I'm not too worried about the smaller details, I'm comfortable to do them as I go along knowing I have a rough enough idea of how it did look and how to improve on it.


    As for the backups situation - I know I can still make backups in vanilla, but in my modded world I use an autobackup mod that does it every halfan hour or so for me. So I can be really lazy with backing up my vanilla world haha. However as I type I am in the process of doing just that! Thank you :D


    (If anyone is interested the latest version will be available through the link in my signature shortly)

    posted a message on How do you summon the courage/effort/will to rebuild?

    So this is the first time I've lost data in MCPC that has really impacted me. Been building this creative world for probably around a year now, had some recent problems with my laptop, reset it, and lost my MC saves. Thankfully my most important worlds have downloadable save files, but as this creative world is totally vanilla, it doesn't have auto backup - therefore I've lost about a month of hard work.


    Within a day or two I've already almost managed to get the train station back to how it was. However, soon I'll have to rebuild the awkward curved path to a post office and police station - rebuilding these buildings alone will take a fair bit of effort, let alone the path leading to them.


    I'm determined to do it, as I've put so much effort into this world during my time playing MCPC. But it's hard. Can anyone please help me - offer me some motivational tips, convince me that my world (mountain village in my sig) is worth the effort, help me believe that rebuilding isn't in vain?


    Please? And thank you

    posted a message on Refreshed/reset laptop, lost Minecraft saves?

    Last night my laptop was playing up - I can't say I have a very good memory of last night, but I remember not being able to get it to start up and after trying everything I could think of, I pressed an option that came up that I think said something about refreshing or resetting the laptop but said I wouldn't lose my stuff. Anyway, I think it said that failed, I can't remember what happened from there, may have tried it a couple of other unsuccessful times, I remember it was taking ages doing something but didn't seem to be doing much, so before going to bed I left it on but closed it. Opened it today, just a black screen but lit up black so it was on. Force turned it off. Turned it on, and it started up totally fine but said it had refreshed/reset/something. Lost some stuff - eg had to re-download chrome, re-log in to websites, re-download the Minecraft app. But most stuff was kept - desktop background still the same, didn't lose photos or documents. But when I re-downloaded Minecraft, it's as if I've just started playing - profiles of old versions are gone, save files are gone, everything.


    It's not the end of the world if I can't get my save files back, as the most important files are backed up online. But I will have lost some stuff as I've done quite a lot since I last backed up. If anyone knows of a possible way to get my save files back (maybe they've been moved somewhere and not deleted??) I would really appreciate it. Please and thank you!

    posted a message on Random textures stopping my textures from joining up

    I've purposely made my textures so that the edges match up neatly with eachother; however the setting in MC that randomly flips/rotates textures to make it look less 'tiled' stops them from connecting properly. How do I turn this setting off, and is there a way to disable it so that if people download my resource pack, it will be automatically disabled? Is there any other way around this? Please and thank you!

    posted a message on What are your IRL problems?

    Figured it's always nice to have a rant to people you don't actually know in real life - so what's bothering you? Feel free to go into as much or little detail as you wish. I will try to give advice where I can, and obviously anyone's welcome to give advice, but I find sometimes just having someone to listen can help. I'll get the ball rolling:


    1. Mental health problems getting on top of me (OCD, GAD, depression to be specific), trying not to let them win and to stay afloat

    2. Expected to do jury service, still fighting my case after having to have my own personal hearing with a judge and scribe which was terrifying, then a nearly-year-long deferral, and now fighting my case again, STILL, even though the deferral date has come and passed. Not going through that again and sick of having to try and prove myself mentally ill 'enough'.


    Your turn! :)
