How to install a texture pack

by celeron55 » Mon Apr 09, 2012 00:22

Minetest 0.4.8 (or later than 2013-08-04):

Put the texture pack folder in
Code: Select all
<minetest directory>/textures/

So that <minetest directory>/textures/ with it's contents looks like this (example packs "HDX" and "Misa"):
Code: Select all
├── HDX/
│ ├── info.txt
│ ├── screenshot.png
│ ├── default_wood.png
│ └── ...
└── Misa/
  ├── info.txt
  ├── screenshot.png
  ├── default_brick.png
  └── ...

Minetest, 0.4.0 and later:

Put the textures without subfolders in
Code: Select all
<minetest directory>/textures/all/

So that you have them like so:

Code: Select all
<minetest directory>/textures/all/default_grass.png
<minetest directory>/textures/all/fire_basic_flame.png

For installed Linux versions, <minetest directory> is ~/.minetest

Every Minetest version

Put the textures without subfolders in any place you like, and add this configuration setting, with the proper path, in minetest.conf:
Code: Select all
texture_path = C:\path\to\texture\directory

However, keep in mind that 0.4 wants paths with the modname_ prefixes, while 0.3 cannot understand them.

More info

Some texture packs assume you will copy just everything over the original files. In such cases, you can either do that, or just copy them from the subfolders into either of the above places.
