Stable Release Latest Release Discord Support

Forge is a free, open-source modding API all of your favourite mods use!

| Version | Support | | ------------- | ------------- | | 1.16.x | Active | | 1.15.x | LTS |

Notes:

  • Introduced in 1.13 was a new FML, information found here.

Installing Forge

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.

Here is a short video from Rorax showing how to install and setup Forge.
