We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Minecraft Forge is a free, open source mod loader designed to simplify compatibility between mods in Minecraft. The end-user must play the version of Minecraft that Forge was downloaded for before it can be used.

Forge Mods[edit | edit source]

Almost all mods nowadays use Forge. Some mods that support Forge are listed on its website.

The user may want to see if the mod they want supports Forge.

What are mods?[edit | edit source]

  • Full info at: Mods.

Mods modify the game. Mods will only work with a certain Minecraft version, although it's not impossible to get a mod for an older version. The compatible version is usually displayed on the mod's download page. Many modders still use 1.7 to mod because of fewer limitations and easier file access.

Forge Mods[edit | edit source]

Forge mods only work with Forge. Forge processes mods differently than Modloader, so only certain mods can work with the two.
