Hints on mods that uses a lot of memory or other compatibility risks, and advice on choosing mods.

When adding my own mods it could be useful if there are some sort of hint that warns about possible high memory or resource usage when adding it to my custom mod list. Especially when I add a lot of mods.

    The problem is that it's not something you can really measure, it depends on so much. performance can be vastly different depending on OS, vendors, drivers etc...

    I agree.

    If I wanted to make a low end performance modpack for certain users it was something where I knew the mods already but if you were a modpack/mod creator you would benefit making it clear if the mod is possible to run because it has a lot of content in it or not which without knowing makes it hard for low end players.

    But for some people having low end modpacks to state it's a within this range of RAM I'd have to put in the title or description. There isn't a tag of sorts for that.

    I think that would be helpful. Most may be quality of life or performance mod modpacks but if people wanted a content one I went with mods I knew were good alternatives then only the big mods and also a good mix of variety while focusing on low end specs. If I had a tag to assign to them I'd do that to make it more clear to an audience looking for that.

Hold on!
