    Nevermind! I must have done something wrong the first time, 'cause when I tried it again, it worked. (I put the texture pack into the minecraft folder)

    Right click the folder and select compress. This will create a zip of the folder. Change the extension of the zip to .jap, so if it used to be minecraft.zip, change it to minecraft.jar. This is all. There are easier ways to install texture packs on mac, by the way. Just put the texture packs contents in the same folder as minecraft. (there are tutorials for this online)

    1. I opened minecraft, and it kept saying "loading done" while never opening...
    2. That doesn't work for me either... :/

    Just so you know... That was a typo. You need to change the extension to ".jar" and NOT ".jap". Just making sure you got that. That should work... If not, is there any way for you to open the minecraft.jar (ie. NOT extracting it; just viewing the contents)? If so, you can open a fresh, unaltered minecraft.jar and "insert" the custom textures.

    Yes, I renamed it to minecraft.jar.
    I'll try the mod edit thing. :smile.gif:

    First, you should use a mod manager like Minecrafter. It's been released cross-platform, does all this for you and is super easy to use. Just visit their site linked in the topic and click 'Mac Tutorial'.


    Second, assuming you really must open and re-compress your *.jar file, the reason you are getting the loading screen is because the way you compressed your folder, the file structure is not correct, and so the minecraft Launcher application cannot find any of its files.

    Selecting the Folder and compressing it will not work. That is because doing so creates an extra folder in the root of the *.jar file.
    Here is the folder structure after just zipping the folder:

    (screenshot via jaree)
    As you can see there is a root folder in the archive called 'minecraft' which was the folder that was zipped.

    Here is the original, un-modified file:

    The files here are not in a folder.
    (The difference in file count is due to invisible files the mac OS creates in a folder, that can be ignored))

    Therefore what you need to do, when you want to re-zip it is:
    1. Open the folder.
    2. Do command+a to select all the files inside.
    3. Right click and choose 'compress ... items'.
    4. The resulting zip file will be called "Archive.zip" and will still be inside the folder.
    5. Move 'Archive.zip' out of the folder to where the original *.jar file was.
    6. Rename it properly.

    This should work.

    Ohhhhhh... That makes sense! :biggrin.gif:

    Pretty sure it's confirmed that lanterns require a material from hell


    It's speculated, not confirmed:

    Quote from MrTorus »
    Lanterns MAY need material found in Hell.

    I guess I misread that then. I'm actually hoping they don't, because I see a sorta loop forming: lanterns need you to go to hell, for hell you need obsidian, for obsidian you need diamonds, to go deep enough for diamonds you need light, e.g. lanterns. Well, torches still work, but lanterns would be ideal.

    You don't need diamonds to make a hell portal... Just a few buckets of lava & water. Think molds. :tongue.gif:

    Read my whole damn post and you'll see I didn't mean mine as "Smash it to pieces with a pic" Yea, one can't literally mine a block of obby as fast as cobblestone. But you can get a block of obby where you want it, faster. Not to mention multiple blocks.
    I don't have to prove anything to you. Especially if you reply like this.

    Then make a video of how fast you can "obtain" obsidian, and I'll try to match with cobble. If you can literally do so, I'd be very interested in seeing how, all "I don't have to prove anything to you." aside.

    He means that you can make a sort of mold and fill it with still lava, then pour water on top of it. Then, bam! A portal frame of obsidian!

    Oops... I didn't see that I only read the 1st page... :tongue.gif:

    That seems right... I think coal will still be used for the lanterns. Maybe something like:
    :Glass: :Glass: :Glass:
    :Glass: :Coal: :Glass:
    :wood: :wood: :wood:

    or
    :Glass: :Glass: :Glass:
    :Glass: :Coal: :Glass:
    :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone:

    Etc.

    Prove it. Make a video of how fast you can mine obsidian, and I'll see how fast I can mine cobble while watching it.

    Quote from dustyshouri »
    A random seed is a number generated that is then plugged into a generator to create something "random." In Minecraft, the generation of your world all comes back down to the random seed created when you first create your world. So if you copy the seed of someone elses world, you too, could have an identical world since the world generator is being "fueled" by the same random number.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_seed

    Nice summary. :biggrin.gif:

    what exactly are seeds?

    The number a computer random generating algorithm uses to generator the random #.

    To install a texture pack, I opened minecraft.jar with "Archive Utility" on an iMac. It expanded it into a folder, so I added the right files into the correct locations, but now I don't know how to convert it back into a jarfile! Help, please?

    App data is a hidden folder. I suggest you search it up if you don't know how to open hidden folders.

    It won't work; it just beeps at me... :/
