How to Install Minecraft Mods (Step By Step)

Yay! I’m glad to see you here 🙂 We are going to see how to install mods in minecraft! Keep reading!

Adding mods to minecraft is more easy than you think. First of all we need to know that all the mods need an API to work, there are two: Forge and Fabric.

The most important think before start is that you can’t mix mods that works with Forge and mods that works with Fabric. Don’t worry if you don’t understand nothing now, will explain all.

And there we come to the first question.


How do i know if a Mod works with Forge or Fabric?

Ok, this is an easy step, the web must provide you that info. Here, in iMinecraftMods, i will let you know it below the mod content, in the first line of install section.

Next we need to know if the mod that we want to install needs a library to work. I will let you know in the second line. (Curse Forge sometimes don’t provide the library info easily).
