Forge API Mod For Minecraft 1.20.4, 1.20.2, 1.19.4, 1.12.2
Minecraft forge 1.20.4-1.12.2 is an API mod that may be needed for some other mods that require the so-called “Minecraft forge”. For example, you can install the following most popular mods: Craft Tweaker, Mouse Tweaks and Just Enough Items. Please note that after updating the game, you must also update the Forge.

Its function is to connect modifications to a kind of universal API-Core library with additional components, without which our favorite mods are not able to fully work and can crash the game.
Stay tuned for updates on this material to always have fresh Forge files that are necessary for the correct performance of downloaded mods.

Forge 1.20.4 updated to 49.0.3 version


  • Large Modding Community. Forge has a large and active modding community, resulting in a vast selection of mods available for players. This includes a wide range of content, from new gameplay mechanics to visual enhancements.
  • Stability and Reliability. Forge is known for its stability and reliability. It has been a prominent modding platform for an extended period, and many modders choose to develop their creations using Forge due to its proven track record.
  • Compatibility with Many Mods. Because of its popularity, many mods are developed specifically for compatibility with Forge. This means players have access to a diverse array of mods that can work seamlessly together.

  • Modding Tools. Forge comes with a set of modding tools that simplify the creation process. This includes tools for modeling, texturing, and testing mods, making it more accessible for mod developers.


  • Learning Curve. For new mod developers, there might be a learning curve when working with Forge. The extensive features and tools it offers can be overwhelming initially.
  • Version Compatibility Delays. When a new Minecraft version is released, there might be a delay before Forge is updated to be compatible with that version. During this time, players may not have access to the latest mods.
  • Heavyweight. Some users consider Forge to be relatively heavyweight, especially in comparison to lightweight modding alternatives like Fabric. This can potentially impact game performance, especially on lower-end systems.
  • Modding Restrictions. Forge imposes certain restrictions on how mods can interact with the game. While these restrictions are in place for stability and security reasons, they can limit the creative freedom of mod developers.
  • Forge-Exclusive Mods. Some mods are developed exclusively for Forge, which means they may not be compatible with other modding platforms. This can limit the choices available to players who prefer alternative modding platforms.
  • Dependency for Mods. From a player’s perspective, having to install Forge as a dependency for many mods can be seen as a disadvantage. This adds an extra step to the mod installation process.
