Reason: All Mods/ pages are being exported to the FTB wiki, so can this be made there instead?
This page should be exported to the above page, not moved via copying and pasting the page's contents. This action must be done by an administrator on the other wiki.
Minecraft Forge is a free, open-source modding API and loader designed to simplify compatibility between community-created game mods in Minecraft: Java Edition. The end-user (player) must play the version of Minecraft that Forge was downloaded for before it can be used. For example, Forge 1.12 will need the 1.12 version of Minecraft in order to run correctly. Forge can then be used from the Play drop-down in the Minecraft launcher.
The majority of modern modifications use Forge in order to be added to vanilla Minecraft, some modifications that support Forge are listed on its website.
Forge modifications only work with Forge. Forge processes modifications differently than Modloader, so only certain modifications can work with the two.
The user may want to see if the modification they want supports Forge.
On Windows the modifications folder is located in the directory .minecraft\mods and is generated after Forge is run at least once. To reach the directory, press Windows key + R and type %appdata%/.minecraft into the search box and hit enter.
On macOS the modifications folder is located in the directory ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft and is generated after Forge has run at least once. To reach the directory, press Command key + Shift key + G while a Finder window is selected and enter ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft .
On linux the modifications folder is located in the directory ~/.minecraft and is generated after Forge is run at least once. To reach the directory on Ubuntu press the Control key + H in the home directory and the minecraft folder should be revealed.
Installing Forge mods
In order to install and use modifications in the game using Forge, the software may be downloaded from https://files.minecraftforge.net/. Forge modifications can be used on any version on Java Edition 1.1 or above, and Forge are strongly recommended to be kept up to date. Forge does not have a user interface itself.
