Minecraft Forge Downloads

It can be quite difficult to mod some games, but Minecraft Forge makes the process relatively simple for Minecraft. It will add a button to your Minecraft launcher that lets you view a list of your mods once you have installed the Forge client as a profile. From here you can select the mods you want to use and launch the game as usual. Or if you've just downloaded a new mod, you can open the mods folder by clicking on the button at the bottom of the list. This allows you to copy a newly downloaded mod to the mods folder without having to locate it manually.
