Boring Backgrounds

Banner for the Boring Backgrounds mod

Boring Background is a mod that allows for changing dirt background with another texture. You can simply change to a single texture, use a weighted list of textures, and even make it change every time the screen is changed!


This mod requires Minecraft 1.17+ and the Fabric API.


There are two ways to configure this mod: through a resource pack, or through the global config folder.

The config format is shared by both methods, and can be seen below:

    // A map of texture identifiers and its weight. A bigger weight means more chances to be chosen over the others.
    "textures": {
        "minecraft:textures/gui/options_background.png": 1
    // If this is enabled, a new background is chosen if a screen is opened, else, it's only chosen after a texture reload.
    "randomize_on_new_screen": false

If you want to configure the mod through a resource pack, create the file at the path assets/boringbackgrounds/backgrounds/background_settings.json.

If you want to use a global config file, the path is .minecraft/config/boringbackgrounds.json. Keep in mind that it will override any resource pack-provided settings.

If you want to reload the settings, you may do so through F3 + T. This is due to the configuration being handled by a resource reloader.
