# Create A Custom Discord App

Out of the Box, Simple RPC will use "Minecraft" as the name of the game you are playing. If this is all you want, ignore this page.

While this is ideal for most people, you might want to display the name of your Modpack instead of "Minecraft". This guide aims to help you set this up.

 

# Part 1 - Creating the Custom App

 
To get started, head over to https://discord.com/developers/ and sign in using your discord account. After signing in, you will be taken to the Discord Developer Dashboard. Press the "New Application" button located at the top right of the screen

Once you created your app, you will be taken to a General Information Page. Here you can give your app a description, change the icon of the app and find the Discord ID required by the mod. Take note of this as you will need it later

# Part 2 - Uploading the assets

 
Once you are done setting up the general information for your app, head over to "Rich Presence" from the left side menu. This will take you to the "Assets" page of your app. Here you can upload and manage images that get shown on your Discord Status.

# Default Assets and Their Purpose

Below is a list of the main images used by the app. The rest of the icons in the set are for things like launcher integration and known servers. The names of the images in the set are the image keys you can use
