Putting Your Minecraft Texture Packs out in the World, Develop a Thick Skin

It is fun how open Minecraft is to user generated content. This allows you to build different skins and modifications so that your Minecraft experience is uniquely your own. As you get better at the coding you might want to share your creations with other users. This gives you an interesting interaction with other players that can be both positive and negative. Because of this, you have to know yourself and your own personal reaction to things before putting your creation out for others to judge.

First and foremost remember that everyone has opinions and might not agree. Just because one player does not like what you have created does not mean that it is not a good skin, texture pack or modification. You have to take what other people with a grain of salt. Also remember that often those who are displeased are more likely to make a comment than those who are happy with something. For some reason “warnings” and negativity seem to run rampant on the internet rather than positive reviews of hard work.

Take Constructive Criticism

After you have put your texture pack out into the world be willing to take constructive criticism. If someone has a suggestion or problem, think about how you might be able to fix it. This doesn’t mean you have to answer every complaint or even modify something you like, but consider what other players are thinking about what you have created because it might make your texture pack even better. Minecraft is meant to be collective; which means taking into account what others like as well.

Keep an Open Dialogue and Give Credit

Don’t be afraid to converse with other users. Someone might have a great suggestion for your texture pack and you should let them know if you plan on trying out what they suggest. Another option is to open up a discussion regarding the suggestions and what other players think as well. If you launch a new texture pack based on the conversations, give credit where credit is due. You can form a great community of players working together to create new and interesting Minecraft mods. This expands your playing experience and allows you the opportunity to continue changing and evolving your Minecraft world.
