It’s about time we jumped on the bandwagon for Minecraft! Below you will see the first video installment of my Minecraft Adventures of my projects that I have worked on in Creative Mode, and you have seen screenshots of on our Lore Hound Facebook page.
As I said in the video, you can download the texture pack either in HD here, or in SD, here. Please make sure you think you can run HD textures, if you’re not sure, grab the SD version instead. I am not held responsible for hard drive failures due to over-clocking RAM. It is a very powerful texture pack.
However, you must also grab the “MCPatcher” file, for whichever OS you’re running, in order for it to work. If you do not, the images will be broken. We will be adding updates to our texture pack periodically, and when it is updated each time officially, a tweet and Facebook status update will be given to let you know, and a text document with a list of changes will be linked. You don’t have to patch the texture pack in, you only need to patch “HD Textures” in for it to work.
How to do all of this is explained after the jump, below the video; enjoy!
If you don’t know how to access your files to install the texture pack it’s simple:
- For XP: Open up “Run”, and then type in %appdata%. The .Minecraft file will be there, and you can create a shortcut to your desktop. Open up the shortcut and you will find a file called “Texture Packs”. Copy (or Cut) the .zip file into there. Leave it in .zip.
- For Win7/Vista: Open up your Start Menu, and in the search field type in %appdata%. The .Minecraft file will be there, and you can create a shortcut to your desktop. Open up the shortcut and you will find a file called “Texture Packs”. Copy (or Cut) the .zip file into there. Leave it in .zip.
For OS X Users (you win):
- Start running Minecraft. At the login screen, hit “Options”. Below “Force Update” will be “Game Location on Disc”, followed by a directory link. Copy that link, and then in Finder, hit Go –> Go To Folder –> and paste that directory there (shortcut is Shift+Command+G). It will open the folder. I suggest you make an Alias of the folder for your desktop for easy access. Then copy (or cut) the texture pack into the folder that is called “Texture Packs”. Leave it in .zip.
For MCPatcher, it’s even easier:
- Unzip the .zip file with MCPatcher in it. Drag the .exe to where you want it to be located, and run it. Select the box next to “HD Textures” (and the others for safe measure) and then hit “Patch”. Once it’s done, run Minecraft with the texture pack and all should work fine.
- Drag the .Jar to wherever you want it (I suggest the desktop) and run it. Select the “HD Textures” (and the others for safe measure) and then hit “Patch”. Once it’s done, run Minecraft with the texture pack and all should work fine.
