AUDIO​ EDITORS & MAKERS

Most mods will not require these but there may be a time where you may want to make your own music or compile sounds into OGG audio format for use in your Minecraft mod. I own FL Studio and Audacity and both are great programs however LMMS is another option for an alternative for FL Studio for making music.

AUDACITY

IMAGE EDITORS

Making textures for your mod is an important part of making mods. These programs allow you to make textures for pretty much anything and are great for making great quality images. I personalty prefer Paint Dot Net and use this for everything from making my video thumbnails to resizing images or texture making for Minecraft.

ARCHIVE SOFTWARE

I have used both of these archive programs in the past I personalty prefer 7Zip due to it not having any popups, both will do the same thing with no major difference in speed or performance. You will need this to access JAR files to obtain Minecraft's resources.

7ZIP

SOURCE EDITORS
