PostSubject: OK, I give up. How do you install mods with the 1.6 launcher?   Mon Aug 05, 2013 10:37 pm

I'm going to have 14+ hours of riding in a car over the next couple of days, so I wanted to get Millenaire ready to play during that time. Unfortunately, Mojang is very stupid and the new launcher sucks compared to the old one in every way I've been able to think of. I've figured out how to create a new version and stuff, and I can run Better Than Wolves fine, because all you do with that is drag it into the .jar. But Millenaire requires Forge, and I've been trying for the last three hours to figure out how I install it. I would rather not use Forge's automated installer. I've got Forge apparently working on its own, but I don't know how to add Millenaire's folders to the mix without it a) doing nothing or b) crashing. It's much to late now for me to have this in time for my trip, but if anyone knows how to do this I'd be much obliged and I'll see it in a couple of days.

Well it's kind of a long process, but you can do it if you have the following:

1. At least 5 candles
2. The ability to draw a pentagram
3. The blood of a virgin (yes, your own will do, does not have to be dead or female)
4. A goat's horn (I've also got it to work with a moose antler and long-horned cow horn)
5. Book of holy Aramaic chants
6. Computer with Minecraft installed
7. Robe

You should use Forge's installer. It does stuff.

1)download the forge .jar
2)run it and select 'install client'
3)when launching MC next time, select in the profile-tab 'Forge'
4)Run MC
5)close MC and enjoy your mods folder being where it used to be

edit: alternatively, follow these instructions:

Take a small chunk of americium from your smoke detector(it is the small black capsule with the markings) and then buy some Coleman lantern slips. Grind these up and get some lithium and a Bunsen burner to refine the Thorium in the lantern covers. After that, make an elbowed tube from thick lead, put the americium from the smoke detector on one end, some aluminum foil on the elbow, and the Thorium at the end. After a little while, the Thorium will begin to turn into Uranium. Then take the uranium, melt it into a blob, and cram that into your computer. This should get various national security groups to install the mods you want.

You need a massive amount of smoke detectors to synthesize sufficient Uranium, and containment is difficult without the proper facilities. It's much easier just to use the launcher.

But they are so easy to find. Go to any sort of salvage yard, and you should find hundreds. They can't be recycled because of the radioactive substances, but the radioactive substances are already sealed and covered.

So the only answer anyone knows is 'use the installer'. OK, next question. Can anyone confirm that it's even still possible to install Forge manually?

You can still, but its more complicated than before, you need to set p another version with a modded .jar.

Failing that just use a hammer, that'll fix everything


Also, I thought Mojang were making it easier to add mods, not more bloody complicated.

Use the installer.
If you try to have better than wolves installed together with forge mods, you lose anyway.

I am fully aware of that, thank you. I'm not trying to set it up with BTW.

Then you shall use the installer.
Because that´s ~5-10 mouse clicks (counting the ones required to download the installer and navigate your folders) compared to an insane ammount of stuff required to install mods without it.

I don't think there's anything Mojang hasn't managed to mess up, to be honest.

We've had a steady flow of updates for Minecraft which I'm grateful for, but all of them seem to be counterbalanced by something either superbly broken or entirely superfluous to gameplay. If this is their way of making it easier on people to install mods, I think it's safe to say MC is on a downward, if not slight, slope.

Beta 1.8 was a downward slope. 1.6 is well over the cliff and accelerating towards complete game failure at 9.8 bugs/second^2.

See, I used to think that, but now I believe I was just hopping on a bandwagon. 1.8 wasn't that bad, hunger has actually proved a nice game change in the long run. I absolutely hate the new texture scheme that seems to be 'lower contrast on ALL the things!' ala Windows 8 (gasp, almost a conspiracy!) but everything else in that update was kosher. Working chests, pig sno- okay, that was pretty meh, but yeah. 1.0 had enchanting and potions, which make the base game ridiculously easy but offers a ton more surprises in multiplayer...also, new Iron texture. But there's something bad I'm probably forgetting about both patches.

The only thing I absolutely hate about Minecraft 100% are the fools on MCF who seem to thrive on antagonizing anyone who finds issue with the game. And carpets. Seriously, f**k those useless things. Also, new launcher.

That's three things. Kill me if you dare, I am a retired Navy SEAL..Razz

Carpets are kind of useful for creative building, but apart from that they are utterly pointless

For me its been a downward slope from 1.2.5; but that may be because that's the edition EE2 and zeppelin mod disspeared. :/

If Mojang release a crappy version, you don't have to play it

Yes, you do, because it's what all the servers are going to be on. Saying 'WELL HRR DON'T UPDATE THEN' is tantamount to just telling someone to uninstall the game and waste their ~30$ investment because Mojang added some dumb feature like horses instead of working to correct problems such as bugs and hacks.

But then you have people whining about lack of content, probably the same fools that go on about it being 'optional' and to 'thank' mojang for letting you give them money, I guess. Please don't be one of those people, Proto. I daresay that would put you even lower on the intelligence scale than the character described in your signature.
