What is a Minecraft Mod?

Have you ever wanted to alter your game beyond what is possible in vanilla Minecraft? A Minecraft mod does just this: These features may be something simple, such as some text on your HUD, or it may be a little more complex, such as keeping your sprint enabled at all times.

Various mods on Lunar Client

Regardless of the functionality of a mod, many Minecraft players often find it confusing to download and install mods onto their Minecraft. Luckily, with Lunar Client, you can easily access countless Minecraft mods, all with the click of a button and without having to download and install every individual mod.

How do I use Minecraft Mods?

To begin using mods in Minecraft, you will need to download and install Lunar Client—the largest Minecraft Client which contains over 65 different mods, including many of the most popular Minecraft mods such as Toggle Sprint, Waypoints, and many more. Visit here and download the appropriate version of the Lunar Client installer according to your operating system.

Furthermore, Lunar Client has aspects of the Forge mod loader integrated into the client, that allows for other 3rd party mods to be added. At the moment, Lunar Client’s Forge module has the NEU (Not Enough Updates) mod, SBA (Skyblock Addons) mod, and Replay Mod.

NEU and SBA add a variety of features and quality-of-life improvements for Hypixel Skyblock players; Replay Mod allows you to record your gameplay from within the confines of Minecraft. In the future, we plan to add other mods, so keep an eye out! To use the Forge module, open the Lunar Client Launcher, press the arrow next to the launch button to access the version selector, select version 1.8, and then toggle the Forge module at the bottom of the screen.

The available modules on Lunar Client

Besides the Forge module, Lunar Client also carries the Optifine and Sodium modules. While the Optifine module is available on all Minecraft versions, the Sodium module only works on versions 1.16.5 and above. Optifine is a Minecraft rendering engine that optimizes your game for better performance and allows for advanced visual customization of the game. The Fabric module contains a selection of other Minecraft mods, including Sodium, Noxesium, Replay Mod, Iris, Phosphor, and Indium.
