In order to run mods on your Windows or Mac computer, you’ll need to install the correct version of Minecraft Forge. This program allows Minecraft to utilize installed mods. If you want to use mods for Minecraft 1. 2, then download and install the recommended version of Forge for Minecraft 1.
Download a mod that you want to use. Go to a Minecraft mod site, find a mod that you like, and download the mod in question. Make sure the mod is for the same version of Minecraft as Forge or it may not work. Make sure that you don’t download anything that hasn’t been verified as safe by the website’s community. Find the downloaded mod file in your computer’s normal downloads location, then click it to select it. The mod file should resemble a Java logo on a white background. If the mod file downloads in a ZIP folder, you’ll first need to extract the file before selecting it.
Double-click the Minecraft app icon, which resembles a block of dirt with grass on it. The Minecraft launcher will open and update if it’s out of date. As of January 2018, the latest launcher release is version 1. It’s a tab in the upper-right side of the launcher window. This is in the middle of the window. Click the green «Game directory» arrow. It’s on the right side of the launcher window, directly across from the «Game directory» switch.
Doing so opens the folder in which all of your Minecraft game folders are located. Double click the «mods» folder to open it. The mod file will appear in the folder. If the mod file does not appear, do steps 3 and 4 again and then try pasting again. You can also close the mods folder at this point. It’s to the right of the giant green PLAY button.
This option will be the Minecraft Forge version number. Doing so will allow you to load the mods. Minecraft will load, along with mod that you added to the «mods» folder. If you don’t want to use the mod anymore, you can switch back to the Minecraft profile in the launcher by clicking the «Profile» arrow, clicking Minecraft, and clicking PLAY. Deleting a mod file from the «mods» folder will remove the mod from Minecraft.
Tap the search bar at the top of the screen. Type mcpe addons into the search bar. Tap GET to the right of the «MCPE Addons — Add-Ons for Minecraft» app. Enter your password or Touch ID when prompted. Once you find a mod that you want to download, tap it to open its page. It’s an orange button below the mod’s preview photo. If there’s more than one DOWNLOAD button, you’ll have to repeat this process for each button.
Wait for the advertisement to let you exit. Ads normally run for 5 or 6 seconds, after which point a small X icon will appear in one of the top corners of your screen. Tap X in the top-right or top-left corner of the screen. You should be back at the mod page.
Doing so prompts a pop-up menu. If the file has multiple INSTALL buttons, you’ll need to come back to this app after the first file installs and repeat this process. This will open both the Minecraft app and the mod inside of Minecraft. If you don’t see Minecraft in the menu, scroll all the way to the right, tap More, and tap the white switch to the right of Minecraft. Wait for the mod to install.
