First Bedrock mod patch, woo :smile:

I haven't really fiddled with Bedrock addons/mods, but is it not possible to load the main mod resources, then load this pack with only the changed files above it to apply the changes? I'm not sure the mod maker would appreciate the redistribution of the entire thing...

Also, if you archive the pack as a zip and not a 7z then rename the extension from .zip to .mcpack it should be possible to just 2x click to install the patch.

I think this idea everyone has that "it's okay to take other peoples' work and redistribute it without explicit permission" is a big issue on the internet, and something people really should stop doing. Remember, when someone makes something (code, images, mods, etc.) they own the rights to it. You infringe their rights when you distribute it fully, or in part, without their permission.

Also - and probably a point you may agree with more - if you include all the files and then you disappear, but the mod keeps updating the patch will be horribly outdated. However, if this patch is just textures it may continue to work with newer addon updates.

Anyway, I redid your patch as an example of how to do a Bedrock patch properly. You can download it from the first post, and you can unpack it with 7zip to see the structure.

It only includes changed textures, and is structured in the way that a .mcpack will work when 2x clicked.

The biggest issue with how Bedrock works is that each addon's manifest.json needs a unique UUID, but that's easy to achieve using a website such as this: https://www.uuidgenerator.net/version4

I'll also point out you can't use any of the resources from the main BDcraft pack in their default position without a very good reason (i.e. the panorama's or normal chest).

In game the correct loading of resources should probably be:

Code: Select all

[bdcraft patches for addons (e.g. this patch)]
[bdcraft main pack]
[addons (e.g. Expansion+'s main files)]
[default]
