    You're correct, and I actually forgot about that (shouldn't have done considering I mentioned language files in the same post...). It's not something I'd add to the guide, but thank you for answering that for me. :)

    Can you paint image, which explains translation directions?

    I don't know what you mean? If you mean translations, while I think they can be done with resource packs, they are outside the scope of this guide.

    Hey cyclone this guide is extremely helpful and I wanted to tell you that the guis have been updated for minecraft 1.12 and that you should update the guide. achievements are now replaced by advancements and there are other new add-ons like the crafting guide. Moreover I wanted to ask you how I can get rid of the words crafting above the 4x4 crafting grid in the survival inventory

    I won't update for 1.12 until it is released, so I don't have to track the many GUI changes throughout snapshots. But I may find the time to update.
    As to words, I mention this in the guide. They can't be moved, recoloured, removed or otherwise modified with resource packs. For this, you need mods.

    Totally guessing here, but I would bet those blue armour outlines are for some sort of potion or magical effect that affects armour, and they change the look of the armour bar. I've only ever seen them as extra, redundant armour pieces, same as the ones above them, so it looks like that part was changed to something useful.

    As for the brewing stand - the coil that's on the main GUI in that picture already, that's an empty coil. The other two images over to the right, they're both parts of the filled-in coil, used to animate it when something is brewing - it fills up really quickly and repeatedly while it uses the powder. That's why there are two pieces there, so it can be animated as totally-full, half-full, and empty (for which it displays neither piece). I hope that's clear enough. :)

    (As an aside, on that custom GUI you have there, the coil on the left looks golden, like it is full - it should be dark green so it looks empty. Otherwise, the filling/emptying animation won't be visible at all.)

    The whole guide is outdated right now (and for the foreseeable future, probably). I think the Brewing Stand GUI in my guide doesn't make mention of the blaze powder fuel that the stand requires now; it's probably part of that. But I haven't looked in the files for years so I don't know exactly what you're talking about.

    So how do I change the mouse in the inventory



    This is still just the OS cursor, right? Minecraft doesn't show a custom cursor? If I'm right, you can't change that, but I could be wrong.


    and the middle thing in the center of the screen



    This is at the start of the very last section in the guide, go read that.

    Alvoria has a point; this is a problem with a mod, not the base game, and you should be posting in the appropriate forum. This cannot be fixed with only a resource pack. What you would need to do is create a texture of a longer chest with 81 spaces (easy to do, just takes some cutting and pasting in Paint), and then specify in your mod to use that texture instead of the vanilla one, for your large chests. Typically you would pack this texture in with the mod's files, and not as a resource pack.

    So I moved the GUIde to a Google Doc. Frankly it was just messed up here and before I updated it I needed to somehow fix the layout, which just... wasn't happening. Hell, I can't even make the text in the OP into a quote without having that ugly newline on top of it. If I take it out, the whole quote block vanishes? What??


    While I moved it, I didn't actually update it (was getting quite comfortable with not bothering, until 1.9 finally actually released). I plan to do that at some point. So if you're reading it now and it looks outdated, that would be because it is outdated. Even so I hope it remains useful for the time being. Anyone who does know anything that did change (like you, nyssaz), please post and let me know! It'll help immensely.

    I'm surprised you could make the creative inventory translucent to be honest, I wouldn't have thought it would work on either. You can probably make it full transparent, but I doubt it responds to any alpha values that aren't 0 and 255.


    P.S. Yes, I am watching this thread. The OP is actually hell to update though, the forum software's very screwy :/

    Thanks kwerti, that makes a lot of sense. I'll have to put together a section on it; shouldn't be too hard. I might quote some of what you wrote there, would you mind?

    Ha. Ha.
    Yes, I'm back, after a year and a day of ignoring this thing, lol. I have updated all the things that needed to be updated, as you can see in the changelog. Unfortunately, I've been gone so long that the forum software has updated and the BBcode is slightly screwy now. All the information is there, I just need to make it look better... :x
    Hopefully Minecraft will not update for a year longer, haha, because I don't think I'll be looking at this for awhile...

    And now the two comments I got in the intervening period:

    Quote from Syxes»

    Great GUIde, it helped me a lot, may you could do one for the particle file, even it isn't a real gui file.


    It doesn't appear in the gui folder, so I'm not touching it. This guide is big enough already. :|

    Quote from Majorbloxxer»

    This is really useful thanks a lot!


    You're welcome! :D

    Quote from kwerti
    For those who want to know: Spectator mode icons can be shown by pressing the keys 1-9 or Button 3 on the mouse. The first icon is for "Teleport to player". The second icon is for "teleport to team" and the barrier icon is for closing the menu.

    Server_selection is NOT the same as resource_packs! The arrows are shifted to the opposite side of their boxes.

    Quote from Alvoria
    I suggest checking out the 1.7.10 pre-release. It does the Minecraft Realms buttons differently, putting them all in their own folder. The 1.7.9 version you show will be effectively obsolete in just a couple of days when the official 1.7.10 release is out. Apparently, this is the version that will be used going forward so you should include it in this wonderful guide.

    Quote from Alvoria
    It was in /assets/minecraft/textures/gui/realms/... but I just checked the official 1.7.10 release and it seems to have been removed. Curious. <_< If you want to see this folder, enable snapshots in your launcher and download 1.7.10-pre3. I'm guessing they moved all of these images to be server-side so they could change the GUI of Realms on the fly without having it be version-dependent. Naturally, they don't work in packs anymore.

    Right, I'm back. Duly noted, you two. I'll update today or tomorrow. Thanks for the feedback!

    Like the GUIde? You can help!
    I don’t play Minecraft much anymore, so it’s hard for me to keep up with changes and additions. To keep this post updated, I need to know about changes both in the files and in the way Minecraft reads them. If you know of anything that is wrong or outdated in the GUIde, or you notice a change in any part of Minecraft’s GUI, post here (or PM me) and let me know. I will check it out and update this thing.

    Many pages! Lots of images! Countless words!

    The GUIde is, as the name suggests, a complete and instructive guide to the intricacies of Minecraft's GUI textures for all you resource pack makers out there. The GUI images are not at all intuitive and there is no help or information to figure out how they work - until three or so years ago now, that is!


    Previously the GUIde was featured across one, then three, posts in this and an older thread. Now it lives in a Google Doc so I can update it without wrangling with the forum software. The GUIde is updated (eventually) to the latest major version of Minecraft and this thread is monitored for comments, questions, or additions.


    Speaking of which, if you have any comments, questions, or additions, you are encouraged to contribute by making a post here! Or private messaging me. Many updates to the GUIde have been predicated by the help of diligent readers, as you may see below. Any information at all is welcome, especially if the guide seems to be out of date.


    You can find the GUIde HERE!
    Read and enjoy. :)
