Minecraft Forge is a free modding utility that utilizes open-source API and loader to provide comprehensive compatibility between numerous community-created mods and the exact version of Minecraft: Java Edition that is downloadable straight through the Minecraft Forge loader. That game version is not some special customized game client, but instead usually just an older version of the game that maintains compatibility with this modding client.

In addition to the general mods that are can be used in all regular versions of the game, users of Minecraft Forge loader can also access a wide array of mods that are accessible only via Forge client.

It is important to note that Minecraft Forge loader does not feature any kind of graphical user interface, and instead it only installs on your PC all the necessary files that are needed for detecting and loading of countless types of Minecraft mods. Windows users can access Forge mods inside the “minectraft/mods” folder, but to activate them first they will have to download them manually from any of the available Internet sources and then place inside that directory. Forge mods can be used on the version on Java Edition 1.1 or above.

Originally released to the public in the summer of 2011, It continues to be developed by the open-source community that regularly updates this popular modding API and loader utility with new features and expanded compatibility for advanced Minecraft modding.

Minecraft Forge is 100% FREE and can be used on all Windows OS versions that run popular game Minecraft.
