THIS GUIDE IS NO LONGER ACCURATE. SEE BELOW FOR A NEW GUIDE:


TEXTURE PACK SUPPORT

With the release of 1.4, Texture Pack support now steps into spotlight with its own option in the main menu! The setup process has also changed significantly. Information on how to setup a texture pack for 1.4 can be found below.

To add a texture pack, download it from wherever the pack authors have placed the pack. Save the file to your Resource Packs folder, which is located at:
  • Windows: %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Terraria\Resource Packs
  • Mac: ~/Library/Application support/Terraria/Resource Packs
  • Linux: ~/.local/share/Terraria/Resource Packs

If the Texture Pack author has correctly set up the pack, it will now appear in the Texture Pack browser, as seen above!

Click the Red/Right arrow to add/enable a pack. Click the Green/Left arrow to disable a pack. Information about a pack can be seen by clicking the hamburger icon.


Pack creators, please note that you will need to be certain that your files are set up as <Pack Name>/Content/Images, and you MUST add a "pack.json" file to your Texture Pack in the root directory in order for it to appear in the browser, like above. See sample JSON below.

JSON:
{
    "Name": "Pack Name",
    "Author": "Author",
    "Description": "Place a one-line brief description of your pack here",
    "Version": {
        "major": 1,
        "minor": 0
    }
}
