Mods Quicklist & Installation

Devilin Pixy
This post was updated on .
Update October 3rd 2012!
- Added 'More Paintings Insane Edition' to the mods. See below! (bottom of list)
Updated July 30th 2012!
- All mods have been updated to the latest versions.


I am not going to fully explain how to install the mods, this is just a quick guide. Installation instructions can be found on the respective links to the mods. Make sure you get the exact version of the mods as shown. If you need any help or want me to guide you through, contact me.

- Use a clean Minecraft 1.2.5 and make sure you backup your old game!
- Run Minecraft once to create folders and have a fresh update.
- Make a backup of your new .minecraft folder.
- Install each mod or set of mod components one by one, run the game inbetween each install and backup your .minecraft folder each time as well if all works fine. Follow the exact order in the list above!
- <jar> = copy content into the minecraft.jar
  <mods> = copy to the mods folder
  <unzip> ... = unpack archive and copy into mentioned folder
  * = Important! If a change in .cfg is mentioned, you will need the right config file to make the mod
    work. Use the config files I provided. Overwrite existing config file! Do this each time a change is
    mentioned after installing the mod. The config file name and location are both mentioned.

All should work fine when you followe this guide step by step.

Config files needed:

- Download Config files
  Create a folder where your minecraft.exe is located and call it 'Config files' to make it easy to find.
  Download this .zip archive to that folder and unpack the .zip, you will then have the 6 config files
