Ever been playing with a Mod in Minecraft and wanted to add another Mod but it doesn’t work? Well i have the answer for you, it’s Minecraft Forge. Minecraft Forge gives you the ability to have multiple Mods installed, they can work together and upgrade your crafting experience. So for example you could have Buildcraft installed with Better Than Wolves Mod installed at the same time. This gives you the ability to get the best out of two great Mods. Minecraft Forge is a great step forward for Minecraft players and Mod developers because we know if we use Minecraft Forge everything will work smoothly. For example if two Mods have added the item oil to the game Minecraft Forge will recognise both of the items as the same item and forge or merge them together.
There’s a list on the forum of what Mods work together, and im sure the list will continue to grow.
How to Install Minecraft Forge API for Minecraft 1.7.2
- Download the latest version of Minecraft Forge API
- Go to your minecraft.jar
- unzip and drop all the files in the Forge zip into the minecraft.jar
