Modifications to the Minecraft base files to assist in compatibility between mods.
Forge is a free, open-source modding API all of your favourite mods use!
| Version | Support | | ------------- | ------------- | | 1.16.x | Active | | 1.15.x | LTS |
Go to the Forge website and select the Minecraft version you wish to get Forge for from the list.
You can download the installer for the Recommended Build or the Latest build there. Latest builds may have newer features but may be more unstable as a result. The installer will attempt to install Forge into your vanilla launcher environment, where you can then create a new profile using that version and play the game!
For support and questions, visit the Support Forum.
If you wish to actually inspect Forge, submit PRs or otherwise work with Forge itself, you're in the right place!

Forge is a large project with many collaborators working on it around the clock. Forge is and will always remain free to use and modify. However, it costs money to run such a large project as this, so please consider becoming a patron.
