How To Use Modgician

A step by step procedure on how to install Minecraft Mods with Modgician

Step 1 – Prepare Minecraft for modding

Not all mods are available for all versions of Minecraft. So, depending on which mods you want to use, you’ll need to create different profiles in Minecraft to run the different versions.

For example; the latest version that the Computer Craft mod is available for is Minecraft 1.8.9, so you’d need to set up a profile in Minecraft for version 1.8.9.

When you first install and run Minecraft, it automatically creates a default profile for the latest version of Minecraft. So, after you work out which mods you want to install, you’ll need to create the profiles in Minecraft to run those versions.

All mods available for installation by Modgician are listed on our site. Use our mod search page to find the mods you want to use.

On each individual mod page is a list of all the versions that the mod is available for.

Generate a profile for modding

The first time you open the program to mod a Minecraft profile, you’ll need to generate a copy of your Minecraft profiles for modding. So just click the Generate button next to the Minecraft version that you want to mod.

 

(if the version of Minecraft that you want isn’t listed, just open Minecraft and create a profile for the version that you want to mod)

To make it easier to find the Mods you want, you can apply category filters which will limit the list to only the categories you choose.

Import the Mods you want

Click the Download/Import button next to the Mods that you want to install. Follow the instructions on the window that pops up to download the Mod and import it into Modgician.

 

(this step only has to be done once per mod per version – after the Mod is imported into the system, it will be there for next time)

Tick the ‘Select for installation’ box for all the Mods you want to install, then click the ‘Install Selected mods’ button.

 

If the Mods require any dependencies (like Forge or Player API), Modgician knows what to do and will automatically take care of this for you. If any dependency Mods need to be imported, Modgician will ask you to import them first.
