but... i am not using any api and can any1 give me some reasons why i should use a api? i know some already: it has compatibility with other mods and you have no need to change some files


A consistant API is good for many things, first:

Forge is efficient, at times well more efficient than likely you could make things otherwise.

Forge has a stable API, unlike doing base edits in Minecraft, of which you have to re-apply those base edits manually every version.

Forge reduces the amount of work you have to do by quite a bit due to the hook interfaces.

And of course compatibility, which is a pretty major factor, having your mod work with others that would otherwise be incompatible due to base edits is quite a boon.
