Minecraft forge API 1.11 It is certainly the biggest tool for Minecraft that allows the installation of mods and features in Minecraft, There’s no limit to what you can do with Minecraft’s mods. Mods are modifications that extend or change aspects of Minecraft. The creators of these modifications are players who want a feature in the official game. Resource packages, on the other hand, are images that replace the originals in Minecraft so that objects look different.
The images below are an example of what can be achieved with mods: the top image shows classic Minecraft without mods, wile the bottom shows Minecraft with a graphic mod. The difference is amazing.

But how do you install mods? Minecraft doesn’t have an in-game option, meaning you have to use unofficial tools. After doing a bit of research, I found what appears to be the easiest system to install mods in Minecraft: Forge.
Minecraft Forge, the all-in-one system for mods
Minecraft mods used to have to be installed manually: you had to open the original game files (which are in minecraft.jar), copy the mod, and delete a folder called META-INF. Unfortunately, this isn’t allowed in the latest versions of Minecraft.
Minecraft Forge is an accessory that was added to Minecraft, making it possible to create and install all kinds of mods. It’s updated regularly and you won’t need to modify the original files.
