What is the new format for resource packs?

  1. Hi everyone,

    If this question is better suited to a different part of the forum I apologize.

    I know that with each update the format of the resource packs updates, but how do you keep track of that? What is the best way to figure out what the new format is, so that I can keep our server resource packs updated?

    Thank you in advance!

    pack_format
    If you are using an older version, you'll need to replace the 5 after "pack_format" depending on your version.

    Note that this guide assumes that you are creating your resource pack in the latest version of Minecraft, meaning that your resource pack might not work in an older version.

    "pack_format" requires:

    (In pack format 3 and higher (1.11 and higher) all of the file names in the resource pack should have small letters only)

    pack.mcmeta
    Open pack.mcmeta in a text editor of your choice and copy or type the following example (don't do it if you do not know what you are doing):

    Code (Text):
    {
       "pack": {
         "pack_format": 5,
         "description": "Tutorial Resource Pack"
       }
    }
