Sorry if this is common knowledge, but I can't find any information about this on the forums and I'm very new to modding Minecraft. I keep seeing this in Eclipse/Forge:

[WARNING] [Modname] Mod is missing a pack.mcmeta file, things may not work well

Do I need to make one, and if so, how would I go about doing that?

Similarly, I get this:

[SEVERE] [ForgeModLoader] The binary patch set is missing. Things are probably about to go very wrong.

Things seem to be working okay from what I can tell; should I worry about this?

Thanks for your help!

I'm updating my mod for 1.6.2 and I can say you don't NEED that file.

I don't know if it's recomended to have, but I know that every textures loads fine without it, if you use the right paths.
A small mod to improve your game, but keeping the vanilla flavour. For Minecraft 1.6.2.

I'm actually having a similar issue. Except I'm actually seeing the negative effects. I'm following a tutorial to make an item but when i test the game the item appears as a black and pink square.

It's giving me the same error messages as the OP. Please help :)

You don't need it. The pack.mcmeta is used by resource packs to provide info on the pack similar to the mcmod.info file for mods. I am not all that familar with why we get that error however it is not needed. I think the reason why we are getting the error is because mods, texturepacks and soundpacks are all sort of becoming the same thing and will probably be treated as the same thing once the minecraft api is finished. I know a few other authors include a pack.mcmeta but it's not required.

The error message is completely unrelated to your issue. You get the pink and black because your textures are not set up right.

I guess that it currently is not an enforced requierment but that it may become one at a later date.
I'd wager that the forge team wants us to use the mcmeta's and has there reasons for doing so, so I guess for mods we plan on releeasing that we may as well spend a few minutes on creating such a file :)

Ok thank you :)
I'm just going to start over. I watched 2 different tutorials and i guess the one i switched to did something different to begin with, so i'll begin again

well its a relief knowing that I did it right. I was worried that I'd missed out on something important while making my mod.
