I go into my .minecraft folder and there's Assets and all the other files and folders, but no resource packs folder?

If I create one manually, and place the textures inside, they don't show up in-game.

I'm on a Mac.

  • could you just create one? – Robotnik Sep 3 '14 at 1:58
  • if i create one and put my texture packs in it doesn't show on the game? – Quayde Sep 3 '14 at 1:59
  • If you rename .minecraft to, say, .minecraft-old, then run the game (forcing it to redownload everything) and start a new (temporary) world, does it create the folder then? – Robotnik Sep 3 '14 at 2:04
  • that worked!!!!! – Quayde Sep 3 '14 at 2:17

    I didn't understood the amount of DV on this question o.o – Michel Sep 3 '14 at 14:49

If you rename the .minecraft folder temporarily to say, .minecraft-old, then run the game, this will force it to redownload everything. Then, start a new (temporary) world, and exit. This should recreate the missing folder.

After you've done this, you can copy your old worlds from the .minecraft-old directory into the new .minecraft directory.

In order to locate the folder, you may go into the game, navigate to options then resource packs. At the bottom the screen there should be a button that says "Open Resource pack folder" Click that and the folder will open.

  • I've tried that but it doesn't open anything because there is no folder in .minecraft called resourcepacks – Quayde Sep 3 '14 at 2:11
  • The folder should be created when you install minecraft. Attempt to make a clean reinstall and see what happens. If it still doesnt create a folder then im stumped. – DarkDestry Sep 3 '14 at 2:13
  • so ur saying to delete my mine craft and the folder and reinstall it again? – Quayde Sep 3 '14 at 2:15
  • Yes. Always remember to back up your worlds before doing so to prevent losing it. – DarkDestry Sep 3 '14 at 2:18
