Minecraft Forge is an essential tool for any Minecraft player. Forge essentially allows players to use “mods” on Minecraft. A Mod is a script developed to “change” Minecraft in ways that the Vanilla version could never have. Most every Mod uses Forge for it’s ability to change the game itself in such simple ways. The developers at Forge update the library each time there is an update to the core version of Minecraft. You can use it on PC or Mac.
To download and install Forge, simply find your version. Then open it up and click on “Install to Client”. This will load it into your Minecraft client. Next, to use it, open up Minecraft like normal and on the bottom left, choose Forge as your Profile. To actually add Mods into Minecraft all you need to do is find your .Minecraft folder which can be found by opening up your Start menu, typing in Run, and then type in %appdata%. Once you’ve opened that, find the .minecraft folder and add a new folder called mods. Next drop in any mod that you’ve downloaded into this mods folder and now open up Minecraft!
