Minecraft PE has gained an incredible amount of popularity lately, and that is because it is one of the most flexible video games out there today. If one is playing Minecraft on a desktop or console, one probably knows how to do mods, but if one is new to the mobile version, one might be interested in knowing how to add mods to Minecraft PE so that one can change their experience even more. This blog post will discuss how mods are installed in this game and how they can completely change how you experience it.
How to Add Mods to Minecraft PE: What are Mods?
Mods are modifications that players can download and install in their games. These can include new items, blocks, textures, or any other changes they would like to make in the game. Various creators make mods, but they all work similarly.
To use a mod, players place it in the Mods folder inside their Minecraft game directory. The game will load that Mod when it starts up instead of just using the standard game content.
What are CraftBukkit and SpigotMC?
CraftBukkit and SpigotMC are the two most popular ways of installing Minecraft modifications or mods. CraftBukkit is a mod for the original Java version of Minecraft that lets one run custom code on their server.
SpigotMC is a special version of CraftBukkit that has been modified for use in Minecraft’s Pocket Edition (PE).
First, one needs to download the mod loader from the official website. Once downloaded, open up your .jar file in a separate folder on your computer. Downloading and installing Java will also be necessary if you do not already have it installed on your PC.
The jar and ModLoader files must be in the same folder before launching Minecraft. Click Launch, type %appdata% into the search bar at the top of the window, navigate through .minecraft, find mods, and then drag all your extracted files into this folder.
Forge is the most popular modding API. To install Forge, one will need a copy of the jar file for the operating system. For instance, if one is using Windows, they would download forge-1.12.2-220.127.116.1177-universal-core.jar and run it with Java 8 or later installed on the computer. After clicking the jar file, click OK and wait for Forge to load up on your game!
What if my Phone is not Jailbroken?
If one phone is not jailbroken, one may need an Android emulator or app on their iPhone. Many free emulators and apps can be used, but we recommend using BlueStacks because it has many games that are compatible with the modding process.
Where Do I Find Good Mods?
Mod packs are a collection of modifications for the Minecraft game. They can be downloaded and used in either the PC version or the Pocket Edition. One can find them on any significant platform that hosts mod packs.
The best place to find these is on Curse, which hosts a large catalogue of different mod packs from around the world.
To successfully use a mod in Minecraft, it is first necessary to find the correct one. Once one has found the correct one, download it and unzip it. Then open up the game on the device. In the top left corner, you will see a button that says Mods.
Tap on this and Add Mod at the bottom of the screen. Find your Mod and then hit open to install it.
