Installing Minecraft Mods Installing Minecraft Mods Assuming you've already, let's look at how to install mods. But first, a word about safety There are a lot of viruses out there, so be careful what you download. Searching for Minecraft mods quickly leads you into a twilight of shady web pages.
Be very careful to stick to well-known forums, and don't follow links to strange ones. (For instance, MinecraftForum.net seems good. But 9minecraft and minecraftdl are a bit scary, so I avoid those.) Many mods have download links via AdFly; that's fine, but beware!
AdFly shows you nasty ads that attempt to trick you into clicking on them by looking like download buttons. ALWAYS wait a few seconds, then click on the great big yellow SKIP AD button.
And even then, DO NOT CLICK on the obvious download buttons; you'll have to find the real one (it usually has a size like 39.65KB right after it). Eventually you'll get good at this.
And a word about autoupdating software There are a lot of places in mod installation where you have to run something you just installed and then quit befor you can do the next step. Forge won't install unless you've run the matching version of Minecraft once; the mods folder doesn't appear until you've launched Minecraft after installing Forge; the latest version of Minecraft won't appear in the Forge profile editor until you've swung a chicken over your head for a while, etc. It's both a blessing (because things do fix themselves) and a curse (because doing a clean install involves many little half-steps just to get things to autoupdate). Mods Minecraft is relatively easy to hack on, so there are lots of fan-written code changes (called ').
Unfortunately, there is no authoritative source for mods, though there are a few lists, at e.g.,,. People seem to just find out about a mod and google it or search for it on youtube. Installation methods used to vary wildly, and incompatibility was rife, but these days, most mods are compatible with MinecraftForge, a convenient mod loader. These days, I refuse to install any mod that isn't compatible with Minecraft Forge, so the first step in using mods is to install Minecraft Forge. Installing Minecraft Forge To install Minecraft Forge, download the latest installer from (it uses an AdFly link, so see above for how to avoid getting fooled into downloading crapware or a virus), then run it, and let it install. There are many tutorials on how to do this. Here are a few: • • • Once you have it installed, you have to run Minecraft once, select the Forge profile, and click Play once, to get it to create the mods folder.
Then, to install a mod, you download it to the Minecraft mods folder (see below), and then start Minecraft, choosing the Forge profile; installed mods are always active. Finding the Minecraft mods folder Before you can install a mod, you need to find your minecraft folder. • On Windows: do Start / Run /%appdata%, or type%appdata% into the location field of the Windows Explorer; then open Minecraft.

• On Linux: in a terminal window, type 'xdg-open ~/.minecraft'. Or if you like working at the commandline, 'cd ~/.minecraft'. Then inside that folder, you should see a folder named 'mods'.
