Mod Installer for Minecraft 1.7.4 / 1.7.2 / 1.6.4 & 1.5.2
Mods have become a massive part of the Minecraft experience, with even the most casual Minecraft players at least installing the HD mod that allows them to run high-res texture packs. The problem with these modes is that they can be a real pain to install, something that mod installer aims to fix. This program makes installing, uninstalling and managing Minecraft mods every bit as easy as it should be – not the complicated mess that it has been since Minecraft launched several years ago.
Forge & Vanilla – Everything’s Kosher
This program does all the hard work for you, including:
- Unpacking the jar files
- Inserting the Mod
- Repacking the Jar File
Even better yet, mod installer works with different kinds of mods. Many mods work together with Forge in order to make the process a little more clear, and not only does mod installer support these mods, but adds a few more features, such as the ability to switch between the forge version of Minecraft and default, as well as moving the Forge mods folder to another location for easy access and modification, and automatic repair of the “Unsupported method” errors that seem to be some common when trying to install Forge mods.
Highly Useful to the End-User
Of course, describing exactly how a program functions doesn’t exactly educate anyone on what it does for them. Perhaps the biggest benefit that mod installer gives the user is the ability to quickly try out mods. There are countless Minecraft mods out there, and picking through them can be a slow and arduous process, especially because of the laborious process required to install and uninstall mods. Mod installer lets you quickly install a mod, try it out, then remove it again, at the press of a button.
Growing a Fan Base
On a broader level, mod installer grows the audience for Minecraft mods. Far too many people who are interested in trying out mods for Minecraft are quickly turned away by the complexity of installing them, and by getting those people back into mods we can even make vanilla Minecraft a better game – so many mods have led to official features in Minecraft, horses being the most recent example. So, what are you waiting for? Grab mod installer and start trying out mods right now!
