Don't allow the combination of forge and fabric

You can't use forge and fabric in the same modpack, so it doesn't make sense that you should be allowed to download forge and fabric mods into the same modpack. Sidenote: a feature showing whether a mod is forge or fabric would also help when searching for mods.

    Exactly. It is very annoying to have to figure out if a mod is for fabric or forge. Many trial and error loading up the game just to close it again and delete more mods.

    It's an easy fix. Curseforge CAN read if you are running forge or fabric. It's just lazyness of the Overwolf team to not rectify this. It can easily read that if you are running forge mods, only show forge mods, and only show forge updates ( Like the latest Charm that har 3 fabric updates before you see the forge update, and you manually have to choose the forge ) .. The team is more busy with bloatware and the shitty overwolf than actually do something for their users.

    I ran into a problem with this, not because they are listed together, but because it registers the last file as a update. Fallingtree, for example, has Forge and Fabric versions. I made sure to install the Forge one, but when I updated several mods I didn't think about it and ended up installing the Fabric version. The version number is identical other than having Forge or Fabric in the name. I think it may be why the pack seemed to corrupt and crash the CurseForge client. I duplicated it and fixed the version issue, which also fixed the crashing when I clicked on the pack. The app should have something that recognizes whether Forge or Fabric is being used when the pack is created / installed. Adding something that checks dependencies on the mod list might be a idea since it grabs them anyway if not already installed. It might make the search take longer, but if it means people don't have to worry about checking for Fabric api after every mod is installed if they are using Forge it would be worth the extra time.

    I agree, although I think it should be mentioned that some mods are being developed for both Forge and Fabric, like the Charm mod ( There is a feature showing whether a mod is fabric or not (the fabric icon), but for mods like Charm it is always the latest version that is by the way also the only one that can be downloaded. So, although the mod has forge compatibility, I can´t use it cuz the latest version is for fabric, and additionally to your idea - not being able to download fabric mods for forge at all - i would love to see being able to pick the version of the mod you are downloading. Another person has suggested this, too, so I didn´t need to suggest it myself. If you want to vote for that, too, as well as for this idea here, here it is:

    Upvoted Yeah it's kinda annoying to have forge and fabric mods listend for a forge pack as I only use forge

    I think there should be a feature directly inside "create custom profile" to choose from fabric or forge to install. And it only shows you the mods supported by the current "profile type"

    This absolutely needs to be changed. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to make a mod pack only to have half the mods be fabric but none of them explicitly saying they are.

    I just reported this as a bug. If a mod has both forge and fabric version not sure why is curseforge ignoring modloaders and just downloading fabric version.

    I came here to suggest this exact topic.
    Its so annoying.
    Or instead of block it, at least tag them visibly in the list, so we can easy see for what type of modloader this mod was made for, instead of having to open the description or even install it to test out because it's not even said there.
    Or go even further and give is a checkbox to hide the fabric or forge mods for better search.

    This problem is a real one, that need to be solved.
