Hi All,
I did a quick search and couldn't find anything specific to this. While I love the look of the world textures, I'm really not a fan of the UI. Just personal preference, but I like the simplicity of the default UI.

I'm playing Sky Factory 3, and I've downloaded the base vanilla texture pack + the mod texture pack.

I did some digging in the zip files, and I see there's a gui sub folder in textures. I'm not sure how Minecraft reads these so I have a couple questions.

1. If I rename "gui" to "_gui" or something of the sort will Minecraft still read the folder? or will it disable all of the contained GUI textures?

2. In the mods texture pack, these gui folders are all nested inside every individual mod folder. Is there any kind of shortcut I can use / create to override all of these at once? If I have to dig through all 65 mods to disable it, so be it, but if there's an alternative I'd love to know.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,
Eil.

If you rename a folder/file it'll not be read by Minecraft.

The easiest way to rename en masse is to either figure out how to write a batch file (if on Windows) to do it for you, or use a Batch Renaming program. Really it'd be quicker to just do it manually.

I did some internet digging and there's a very simple Windows PowerShell script that will do this for you in about 2 seconds.

1. Unzip the Mod texture Pack
2. Open Windows PowerShell
3. Navigate to the "assets" directory
4. Type this command in the console:
Code:
Get-ChildItem -Filter "gui" -Recurse | Rename-Item -NewName {$_.name -replace 'gui','_gui' }

This will replace all exact instances of "gui" with "_gui" effectively disabling the folder in Minecraft.
5. Re-zip the file and place in your texturepacks directory.

This takes about 2 seconds to run. Far easier than doing it manually or using any 3rd party software.
