why ".minecraft"?

I'm a standart Minecraft Forge user with my own server and mods on it. I have a self-customized launcher, which has a line directing all the downloads into the "appdata/roaming/.lunar" folder but not "appdata/roaming/.minecraft" and the loads the game from it.

 

The Forge tries to make it own downloads into the "appdata/roaming/.minecraft" folder and loads mods from that. But I actually want it to use "appdata/roaming/.lunar" folder.

 

Is it even possible and how do I make it?

Set java environment variable net.minecraft.applet.TargetDirectory to your working directory

Make your launcher set the home directory of minecraft correctly.

FML/Forge trust Minecraft as theres no other thing it could logically trust.

It doesn't actually care where the home folder is.

Look at the plethora of other launchers out there that do things properly.

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