Resource Packs are add-on files which allow players to customize the game's sprites, musics, sound effects and translations.

Installing a Resource Pack[]

The Resource Packs menu.

Resource Packs can be installed by either being placed in the ResourcePacks folder, or by being downloaded from the Steam Workshop, where they will be installed and updated automatically.

The ResourcePacks folder can be accessed by pressing the "Open Folder" option in the Resource Packs menu in-game. This folder is generated when the game is launched.

  • On Windows Vista and later, %USERPROFILE\Documents\My Games\Terraria\ResourcePacks
    • On Windows XP, %USERPROFILE\My Documents\My Games\Terraria\ResourcePacks
  • On Mac, open Finder and press "Go" on the top. Then press "Go to folder...". Type in ~/Library/Application Support/Terraria/ResourcePacks
  • On Linux, $XDG_DATA_HOME/Terraria/ResourcePacks​
    • This is typically ~/.local/share/Terraria

Installed Resource Packs can be enabled from the Workshop Hub or by selecting the "Resource Packs" option on the main menu, where they can be moved between "Available Packs" and "Enabled Packs".

Creating a Resource Pack[]

Contents[]

Resource Packs require a pack.json file; otherwise, it will be not be recognized by the game. It may optionally include an icon.png file for display in the Resource Packs menu. A valid pack.json file will look like the following:

{
	"Name": "Pack Name",
	"Author": "Author",
	"Description": "Place a brief description of your pack here, line breaks can be input with \n",
	"Version": {
		"major": 1,
		"minor": 0
	}
}

Example folder structure[]

  • Pack Name
    • icon.png (optional)
    • pack.json
    • Content
      • Images
        • Acc_Back_1.png
      • Localization
        • en-US_Content.json
      • Music
        • Music_77.ogg
      • Sounds
        • Player_Killed.xnb

Images[]

Images are placed inside the Content/Images folder of the Resource Pack. They must share the same file name (albeit with a png extension) and canvas dimensions as the default images. The default Terraria images can be located here:

  • On Windows Steam version, C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Terraria\Content\Images.
  • On Linux Steam Version, ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Terraria/Content/Images
  • On macOS Steam version, Library/'Application Support'/Steam/steamapps/common/Terraria/Terraria.app/Contents/MacOS/Content/Images.
  • On GOG version, C:\GOG Games\Terraria\Content\Images.
    • Tip for Mac users: To open and view the contents of Terraria.app, right click and select "Show Package Contents"

These default images are stored with the xnb file extension. TConvert can be used to extract the default xnb images as png files for viewing, editing, and saving.

Music files are placed inside the Content/Music folder of the Resource Pack. They can be in either wav, mp3 or ogg format.
