This guide explains how to install mods onto your Fabric client. Fabric, like Forge, is a version of Minecraft that allows for mods to be run on both the server and client. For clients, Fabric offers many mods such as minimaps, HUD improvements, OptiFine integrations, and more.
To install Fabric mods onto your game, you'll need to have Fabric installed onto your client. You can view our tutorial on how to install Fabric for your client here: How to install Fabric on your PC
- Download any mods you want to install onto your client. You can find Fabric mods on any sort of mod website, such as CurseForge. For this example, we'll be installing Hwyla.
- Note that a large number of Fabric mods, including Hwyla, require the Fabric API; You can download the Fabric API from here: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/fabric-api
- Once the mods have been downloaded, navigate to your Minecraft install folder. This varies per operating system and install, but should look something like this depending on your platform:
- Open the
modsfolder in your Minecraft install folder. If there isn't a
modsfolder there, you can create it.
- Move the mod JAR files that you downloaded into the
modsfolder in your Minecraft install folder.
- After moving all the files, open the Minecraft Launcher and start the game using your Fabric profile.
After loading your game and loading into a world, all of your mods should be accessible. For some mods, they'll need to be installed on both the client and the server in order to work in multiplayer; you can read our guide on how to install Fabric mods for your server here: How to install Fabric Mods on your Minecraft ServerIf you require any further assistance, please contact our support at: https://shockbyte.com/billing/submitticket.php
