This mod allows for sound packs.
They're like texture packs, but for your ears.
What can you do with this mod?
You can change the sounds of Minecraft, and create easy to use Sound Packs.
Why is this mod unofficial?
The official mod has been discontinued, probably permanently. I felt this mod was too useful to let it go to waste, so I got permission to update it and here we are. He didn't actually endorse this mod, though, therefore it's unofficial.
The resources updating setting doesn't work!
I think that setting's a carry-over from when this mod was still a .jar mod and it could actually stop Minecraft from updating the resources folder. I might replace it with something different later.
Why is this mod a .jar instead of a .zip?
Tradition, really. Xamio distributed it as a .jar, so I figured "why not". Why did he do it, you ask? No clue.
Compatible Sound Packs:
- Minecraft Classic Sounds Pack by GiveAway412. (Pre-1.4 sounds pack)
- Skyrim Craft Music Pack by brewski118.
Outdated Sound Packs:
These sound packs were made pre-1.4. As such they have some functionality, but are buggy. Instructions on how to fix this are near the bottom of this post.
- Retro Sounds Pack by Xamio. (Old sounds/reference pack)
- OblivionCraft Sound Pack by Olasonline
- Zelda Sound Pack by KingPosse
- Junk Jack Sound Pack by TheGoodUsernames

How to make your own Sound Pack:
1. Make a copy of your resources folder and name the copy whatever you want your sound pack to be called.
2. Change sounds you wish to change. (Make sure they are .ogg files) You can use .ogg files instead of .mus in the streaming folder.
3. Delete any files you don't change.
4. Add an image named pack.png and a file named pack.txt. The image displays ingame at 64x64, and the contents of pack.txt are used as a description for the sound pack and can be blank.
THIS MOD USES MINECRAFT FORGE
V2.5 for 1.4.6 and 1.4.7
1. Download and Install Minecraft Forge.
2. Download this mod and place the .jar in your mods folder
//Optional: Sound pack installation//
3. Download a Sound Pack.
4. Extract the contents of the .zip or .rar file into "%appdata%\.minecraft\Soundpacks"
5. Start Minecraft.
Note: Unlike with texture packs, the sound packs CANNOT be read in a .zip folder. They can only be read in normal folders. You MUST do step 4 correctly.
Updating old sound packs.
Minecraft no longer natively uses the sound and newsound folders and has changed a few sound names. Sound Packs will let you use those folders but this feature is currently buggy, and as such it is recommended you update the pack to use sound3 instead.
1. Rename the newsound folder to sound3. If you still want to use the sound pack on older versions of Minecraft, then copy the folder instead and name the copy sound3.
2. A number of files have been renamed, and extra sounds for some events have been added. I'll be sorting this list by folder for simplicity.
Of course, I only listed sounds that have been renamed or had new versions added, so if you want a proper update you should ask whoever made to pack to do it!
