How do I add a resource pack?

Adding a resource pack is pretty simple once you know how. The first step is to make sure your parents are okay with you downloading and installing a resource pack.

If they are, find one that you like and download it from a reputable site. We recommend sticking to sites like Planet Minecraft or the official Minecraft Forums and make sure you always scan your download for viruses before you do anything with them.

Keep in mind that resource packs often stop working when a new version of Minecraft is released, so when you pick your resource pack you’ll want to find one that works with your current version. Your resource pack is typically a .zip file. Don’t unzip it, you’ll put the entire zip file into the resource pack folder.

To install the resource pack press the ESC key on your keyboard. This will open up the game menu. Click on Options…

esc and options

 

The option screen can be confusing but the only thing you want to worry about on there right now is the Resource Packs button on the bottom left side:

This button opens up the Resource Pack screen and lets you quickly switch from one resource pack to another. If you haven’t installed any packs, the only thing you will see is the default resource pack:

At the bottom of this screen is the Open resource pack folder button. Click on it to open the folder where you’re going to save your resource packs (you can also get to this folder from the .minecraft folder found under AppData).

Drag the resource pack zip file into this folder. Do not unzip it, just leave it in the folder as is so that it looks something like this:

Close the folder and go back to your Minecraft client. Open back up the Resource Pack screen (following the same directions as above) and there will now be two resource packs available to choose from: default, and the one you just installed:

Click on the resource pack you want to use so that it’s surrounded by a light grey box (see above) and then click the done button. Tada! You are now using a resource pack.

Oh no! My Launcher automatically updated, what do I do??

The new launcher defaults on using the most current version of Minecraft that has been released by Mojang. Unfortunately, servers like Blocklandia aren’t able to immediately update to the new version (we have to wait for plugins to update first.) When the server is not the same version as your Minecraft client you’ll see an “outdated server” message when you try to connect. This means you need to switch to the same version that the server is on, in order to join us.

The good news is, with the current launcher, it’s extremely easy to switch between versions. The first step is to click on the Edit Profile button in the bottom left side of the launcher:

Click on the edit profile button

 

Then change the version your profile is using to the previous version (or the version of the server) by clicking on the arrow after the Use Version: box.

The server is currently on release 1 . 8.8

I like to set up a profile for each version (labeled with the version number) so that I can easily switch back and forth as needed.

How do I use the new Minecraft launcher to switch versions?

The new launcher lets you switch between versions which is great because it allows you to update but still play on servers that haven’t updated to the latest version of Minecraft.

To switch between versions you need to set up individual profiles for each version number in the new launcher. Please note the server is currently on version 1.8.8.  This video explains how to do that:
