Change the mods directory

in case you didn't know, there are a LOT of different modloaders out there, I know of Forge, LiteLoader, and Risugami's Modloader. Though I haven't really used Modloader since I don't like messing with my jar files knowing I'll mess something up, I know that Forge and LiteLoader both use the mod folder, which I find kinda dumb. If there was an official Loader for Minecraft then it would make sense to just use mods as the folder, but since there are more than just one, it makes more sense to all use a different one. For example, Forge's folder could be called ForgeMods or FMods, Lite could be LMods or LiteMods. What this would end up doing is making it so that the players don't have to change their mods out every time they use a different loader. I use Forge for personal use, but I use Lite so that I can get the WorldEdit GUI. I switch out a lot and each time I have to change the mods in the folder. I know this sounds very lazy, but changing the directory can't be that hard, and it would be more convenient for the users. And I do get that everyone else would have to be on board, but why should that stop you from doing something this simple?

 

Thanks for reading, I hope you take this idea into consideration.

No, this is a stupid idea.

FML mods, and LiteLoader mods can exist in the same folder at the same time, as well as the fact that LiteLoader can be loaded along side FML as a normal mod.

If you MUST have different folders then this is what the command parameter to specify mods is for, or the game dir option in the launcher.

There are plenty of systems out there for what you want. Stop being, as you admitted, lazy.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.

hi,

 

Just in case you didn't notice:

Risugamis ModLoader loads mods containing a special named file only.

LiteLoader loads mods ending with .litemod

Forge loads all Files ending with .zip/.jar/Folders that contain a special mcp file, declaring how to start them or just adds them to the class path! And searches the MinecraftVersion Folder for Mods (e.g. ".minecraft\Mods\1.7.2", ".minecraft\Mods\1.7.10")

 

So its not needed to chenge the folder since the ModLoader notice if its a mod they can load.

 

Also LiteLoader is Forge compatible AND Forge provides all features from Risugamis ModLoader, so you don't need to always switch your d*** mod loader.

 

greetings

;-)

I don't mean to necro but I can't find any documentation on the command parameter. I'm assuming you mean a JVM argument? Could you elaborate on this or direct me to a documentation? I am developing a launcher and it would help for me to know how to use this command line argument so that different mod configurations can be loaded without having to copy the ENTIRE instance folder for each. Thanks.
