Minecraft Forge, commonly known as Forge, is a massive API and mod loader used by modders to hook into Minecraft code and create mods. Forge contains numerous hooks into the Minecraft game engine, allowing modders to create mods with a high level of compatibility. Forge also allows modders to perform bytecode manipulation to further modify the game. Players can use it to run mods simultaneously.
To install Forge, go to "Forge downloads" in the "External links" section, click on the desired version on the left side, and download the installer. The installer redirects to adfoc.us, which is littered with malware; do not click on any ads and press the skip button. Double-click the downloaded the .jar file and select install. After it finishes installing, open the Minecraft Launcher. On the installations tab, a new profile called
forgeappears; do not rename it. To install the mods, go to the .minecraft folder and create a new folder titled
mods. Mod names should all be in lowercase. Move the mods' .jar files into the mods folder. When the Minecraft Launcher is opened, choose to launch the game with the profile
forge. All mods should be loaded
