🡠 Back to Minecraft Versions

The Forge Mod loader is a special type of Minecraft server software, it will load mods into the server so modpacks can run on a dedicated server. Initially released on July 30, 2011, the Forge Mod Loader is a easy way of installing mods into the game without manually injecting the mods. Server owners can create their own modpack (or use a existing one), install it on the server, and have people join with all their mods loaded.

Forge Features

Running Forge has several advantages over traditional vanilla-based jars such as spigot or paper, here is a few of our favorites:

  • Full Control - Mods can fully control the game, adding new blocks, and whatever other features the author wants to implement.
  • Endless Content - With thousands of mods available for free, server owners can create their own style of playing, with endless content to add to the server.
  • PreBuilt Modpacks - If you do not fancy creating a modpack from scratch, there are hundreds of pre-made modpacks, ranging from hardcore difficulty to a more open-ended pack that players can create ultra high-tech bases in.
