Looking for how to install Terraria texture packs? This quick guide tells you how in just a few easy steps.

Terraria is great, and it looks incredible for the most part, but sometimes you want to change things up. Sometimes, you want to install Terraria texture packs to make Journey's End look even better. Here's how to do it. 

As of this latest update, Terraria now officially supports texture packs, which means it's easier than ever to play around in a world that looks however you want it to. So, it's a great time to spice up the look of Terraria, and here's how. 

How to Find Texture Packs for Terraria 1.4

Finding packs is easy, all you need to do is head over to the forum dedicated to texture packs. Then, you can either go into the Released or Works-in-Progress sections.

Released packs are complete and will work perfectly, while Works-in-Progress might not. Choose the pack you want and download it and you can begin the install. 

How to Install Texture Packs in Terraria 1.4

Installing the texture packs is easy too. First of all, you just need to drop the .zip file into the right folder. Here are the paths to follow for PC, Mac, and Linux: 

  • Windows: Documents\My Games\Terraria\ResourcePacks
  • Mac: ~Library/Application Support/Terraria/ResourcePacks
  • Linux: $XDG_DATA_HOME/Terraria/ResourcePacks

Once that's done, you need to open up Terraria, choose the Texture Packs option from the main menu, and then activate the texture pack you want. 

You can activate them and deactivate them from here, so you can swap between them to get a feel for your favorite ones or see what happens when you use loads of them at once. We don't recommend that though.
