Being able to play around with mods is one of the things that many people feel put PC gaming ahead of console gaming. Today, we are looking at CurseForge which is a fantastic program that lets you mod to your heart’s content on many different popular games. As well as downloading mods, you can share your own and even benefit from doing so!
How to Download CurseForge
The Program Review
So what games is CurseForge compatible with? There is a solid selection of games, but the big two are Minecraft and World of Warcraft. As of writing, Minecraft currently has over 86 thousand… yes 86 thousand mods on CurseForge. The next highest amount is World of Warcraft, but that has under 10 thousand.
Other games supported include StarCraft II, Among Us, World of Tanks, Elder Scrolls Online, and more than a few more. It is very easy to look through all the mods and you can even search if you know what you are looking for. If you take Minecraft for example, you can select how you want the mods displayed such as by popularity or when they were created, for example.
Once you find a mod you like you just click install and let CurseForge do the rest. However, we have got a bit ahead of ourselves as before that you will need to create an account and download the program onto your computer which is easy enough to do. Actually, being easy is what CurseForge is all about, I have used mod programs in the past that were kind of clunky, but that is certainly not the case here.
With CurseForge, you have a very easy-to-follow UI. You basically pick the game you want and then select the mods that you want to load and that is pretty much it. Sometimes there may be a compatibility issue here or there, but that is to be expected when you are dealing with mods.
While playing around with the mods is great, CurseForge is very community-driven as well. You can vote for what you like, but the thing I think is really cool is the way that they reward creators. They say that mod authors get 70 percent of the revenue of the app, so if you make a mod that hits the big time, you can earn some pretty neat rewards.
Granted making mods is way above my level of understanding, but for those that are into this kind of thing, it is cool that they get rewarded for it. You may be wondering how they are able to offer rewards, well that is because this is kind of a premium service. CurseForge does have a free version, but it is supported via ads, that is the version I played around with.
There is also a subscription-based model you can look into which does away with the ads. No matter which version of CurseForge you decide to use, it is cool that creators have the chance to get rewarded for the work they do. It is probably because of this that there are so many mods on here.
If you like messing with mods and CurseForge has a game or games you like to play, give this a try. It really is very easy to use and some of the games on here have a ton of mods! They are always adding more too so this is the kind of thing that you will never be able to get truly bored of.
CurseForge is a tool for downloading mods for your games. It's an amazingly useful resource for anyone who's interested in customizing their game experience or just trying out new things that are unavailable in the vanilla game. They have an amazing selection, and you don't have to worry about installing anything because all you have to do is download it!
