MMC creates 'minecraft' folder as '.minecraft' #2352
MultiMC version: 0.6.2-1163
Operating System: MacOS Sierra 10.12.6
Summary of the issue or suggestion:
Using the 'Instance Folder' menu selection on right side of window shows the instance folder, but the 'minecraft' folder is invisible. Examination from command line reveals the 'minecraft' folder is instead named '.minecraft'. Renaming the folder to 'minecraft' makes it visible, and the instance still runs.
What should happen:
Selecting 'Instance Folder' from the right-hand menu should show 'instance.cfg', 'mmc-pack.json', and 'minecraft'
Steps to reproduce the issue (Add more if needed):
MMC 0.6.2-1163 creates the 'minecraft' folder as '.minecraft', making it invisible.
Second log entry shows the anomaly:
So far, I have only tested this with MC 1.13. No modpacks are available as of the last time I checked (among the ones I'm interested in).
Curious why the sudden abrupt change. Were people complaining about seeing things after clicking the 'Instance Folder' menu item? I guess this makes it more interesting, so people have to learn more about how to access the important files. Also introduces a radical difference from the way MC works.
I know my wife doesn't like the new presentation. She does a lot with the 'Instance Folder'. Now, she'll get to learn how to make the folder visible.

Is there really something to learn?
So, this breaks some badly written mods? Those would break in MC without MMC, too, right? Bummer. I tried making a symlink, and that looks like it will work, without having to toggle "show invisible files" system-wide. Another path to get to the minecraft folder is to go to the config folder, then go upward to its parent (minecraft).…

Thanks! I think there are a lot of tips pages out there telling people to go into the minecraft folder to add/modify things. Adding direct access to the folder would be much appreciated by those who read/write those hints.…

Let's add a direct way to open the .minecraft folder (which is probably much more useful). — You are receiving this because you authored the thread.
