Transcript:

Hi, I’m George Peirson. And in this Minecraft, Texture, Pack video, I’ll be showing you how to change a texture inside of Adobe’s Photoshop program and then put it into a Minecraft Texture Pack and install that back into Minecraft. We working here with this dirt wall. I’ll show you how to change this dirt into something different, and then we’ll come back here again and see how that has changed inside of the game. Now, if you enjoy this video, make sure you hit that.

So we’ll be changing this dirt texture here and using Adobe’s Photoshop program to do that. Let’s go ahead. Close this down! Just get this out of the way here there we go. Now I need to be at this point where you have your assets available. You also have these two files available. If you missed my previous video on how to get to this point, then you’ll find a link for that video in the description and also up there in the Youtube cards. OK, the first thing we need now is to bring up. Photoshop CC And there’s Photoshop in behind our folder. So look at the assets full learning. If you don’t have this folder set to go take a look at my previous video and there are links, of course in the description for that, OK in the assets folder where it says Minecraft inside of Minecraft. Come down here where it says textures inside of this. Here’s all of your textures. All we care about right now is one of the very top that says block. Let’s open this one up and here are all of your different textures for all. Your block’s a lot of stuff in here. There’s the beacon right there. Here’s bedrock right down here. There’s bamboo with large leaves right there, so all that stuff is in here, it’s all alphabetical. These are really really small files, and that’s of course, so that Minecraft can run very quickly with all of that different complexity that has so. I’m just going to scroll down here until I find the dirt there. It is, there’s our dirt. It’s a PNG file. You see right there? It’s 16 by 16 PNG very, very small file. I’ll just drag it over here Inside of Photoshop. There it is about as small as you can get. Let’s just zoom in on that once you have the file open in Photoshop. You can change anything you want on this to anything. You look that you want. Keep in mind, though, that all of these different blocks have different reasons for being in the game. This one is dirt. Yes, this is underground dirt. Specifically, it’s not dirt on top. It’s not dirt that has grass on it. It’s just the dirt without grass on it and without the top on it, so this one has a specific function in the game, so you want to have what it shows here to be similar to what it should be having in the game, so we’ll make dirt into dirt well. Do something real easy here in this quick video. What does change the color of this thing? So you can see how the color changes and how that works those corporate image come down to adjustments. And I’ll grab the hue/saturation there. We are, lets. Just give this a color shift well. Go to come a nice green right there. You’d be a little bit darker. It’s like I’m a nice, dark, greenish color That’s kind of interesting, of course. I could change anything I want, but we’ll keep it simple again for this video. So there we go, There’s our nice, dark green color and then file and save, and there it is so we’ve now opened this up from the assets folder and we’ve now saved it back into the same location with the same name. That’s the important part. Make sure you keep the names the same. Okay, we’re done with. Photoshop now. Let’s get this out of the way back up here to our resource. Pack folder. Now we need to combine this this and this together into a zip file. They can find both of these two files on my website and there’s a link for that in the description. We can download these two files if you want to, you know the PAC. PNG this is just a 128 by 128 PNG file. So you can make your own if you want to on this. It’s a PNG 24 Yeah, 128 by 128 any image you want is fine as long as it is that size, right, There, 128 by 128 png-24 fly up. Okay, let’s go ahead and zip these things up. I’ll click on the assets and we’re using the whole folder. You know, Minecraft, Everything in here the whole thing there. We are click on that one. I’ll hold the ctrl key down. I’ll choose both of those as well, right, click, and the program I use for. This is 7-zip does a really good job that just come down here. I’ll add this to you archive. This lets you give this a name and I’ve been using cat in here As my scanner name else calls one cat 6 there we go, It’s gonna be in these zip file format. Everything else can stay at the defaults. Choose, ok. It’s not going to zip the whole assets folder together, and when it has done that, this new zip file becomes our new resource pack or texture pack. If you want to think of it as a texture pack, you know, let it finish this zip function once this is done. Well, then take this over into Minecraft and install it and see how it changes the look of our dirt wall. That’s out there on the beach. OK, there we go. Cat 6 That’s our new file. Now, let me pull up Minecraft, and I’ll show you how to install this back into Minecraft. Look at this Minecraft back up again. They have it not full screen as you can see what you want to do is to go over here into options and resource packs right there and where it says open resource pack folder. Click on that, and here’s our resource pack folder. These are the resource packs that I have installed right now inside of Minecraft. Okay, so this get Minecraft out of the way for a second, just minimize that here’s one. We just made all you have to do is copy this over into this resource packs folder all just right. Mouse, drag that over here and then choose copy so making a copy that that way in case I delete it over here. I still have my copies over here, so it’s just a nice safety so there it is copy it over, we can now close this one down. We’re done with that. We’re also done with this and we can then bring back up Minecraft and take a look at that change. Now we need to refresh our resource pack list, so I’ll click on done and then go back into resource packs again, and there it is, there’s a new resource pack, click on the arrow and that brings it over here into the selected resource packs. These are currently installed ones. It comes in at the top and that’s the right position. The one at the top is the one we’ll be seeing. You can change the position here. If you want to just by moving this up or down, just that easy little arrows right there. We want it at the top in order to run that and have this as the currently used resource packs. There we go we’re all set to go Click on done. Let’s go ahead and launch and all this maximize our screen. There it is click on done again back to game, and there we go. There’s our green wall, so now change the dirt from brown over to green now. I want to show you one thing about this. If we walk over here to the left a little bit here, some stuff over here. Now it isn’t the top blocks. This is dirt that has grass on top, so that’s different. These are the dirt blocks that are just down, just a touch from the top lets. Just get rid of one of these things here and notice that the dirt underneath also is our new color, so it’s going to change anything That’s showing inside of Minecraft right now over to that new resource pack. Look, so there we go, That’s all you have to do to edit and set up a new texture using the Adobe Photoshop program. Now, in my next video for Photoshop, we’ll be getting more involved in how to actually think about setting up a change for the whole look for Minecraft, and we’ll take a look at doing all of the dirt and all the different parts. You need to look at to change all of the dirt in the program, so it has a consistent look throughout the whole program.
