Hey bees! In this thread I'll give a detailed tutorial on how to modify or fully remove sounds in Minecraft. This includes the portal sound, fire, water (basically any sound that would annoy you). First off, if you are planning to remove sounds, you need to get a .ogg file which has no sound. This is the one I used: http://blog.ginzburgconsulting.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/silent.ogg just right click and save as anything you want, but keeping the .ogg at the end. If you want to just use a Minecraft sound for different sounds, those can be found at C:\Users\PCName\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\resources (All different MInecraft sounds) And just copy the sound you want to use. Next, you need to download a custom recourse pack, anything other than default should do. Then find that recourse pack at C:\Users\PCName\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\resourcepacks, and go into it. When in the folder, go into assets, then minecraft. If you don't see a a folder named "sounds", go ahead and make one. This is where all the custom sounds will go. To change a sound, you need to make a folder with the name as the folder associated with the sound at C:\Users\PCName\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\resources. For example, if you want to modify the sound when you are near fire, you would go to resources, and in "sound3" there is a folder named "fire", so you would make a folder named "fire" in your new sounds folder. In that folder, place the .ogg that you want to use as your new sound, and rename the file to the same as in the resources. Using the fire example, in the folder "fire" there is a file named "fire.ogg" so name the file in the sounds folder as "fire.ogg" and that new sound will replace the old sound if done correctly. If you want to modify the sound for going through a portal, make a folder in your "sounds" folder named "portal", and in the folder place the .ogg file that you want to replace it with, and rename it "portal.ogg" and so on. Other sounds can be found in the "resources" folder of .minecraft, and just do the same for whatever sound you want to modify. If you feel that this tutorial is missing something or you have a question, leave a reply and I'll answer it for you! -AnIrishPotato- Thanks to @Bgbros for showing me that this was possible EDIT: As the new "punching" sound for 1.9 is very loud and unnecessary for some games, I will explain how to change it as it's a bit more complicated and harder to find. Go to your "sounds" folder and make a new folder called "entity". When in the folder, make another folder and name it "player", and in that folder create another folder called "attack". This is where you will put all your ogg files you want to replace the punch sounds. There are 4 different sounds for when you punch before the cooldown has ended, so paste your ogg file 4 times and name them "weak1", "weak2", "weak3" and "weak4". There are 6 different sounds for when you punch and the cooldown has expired so paste your ogg another 6 times and name them "strong1", "strong2", "strong3", "strong4", "strong5", and "strong6". Once you have done this, close Minecraft and open it again or press f3+T, and the punch sounds should be changed!
