IDEAS

Help shape the future of CurseForge!

Forge and Fabric mods being able to be played at the same time.

I hope that I can explain this better than my previous idea. (https://curseforge-ideas.overwolf.com/ideas/CF-I-316) Let me be clear. I want to be able to play both Forge and Fabric mods together. (As there are some mods that I want to use but can only be played using Fabric) But, I want to search for Forge and Fabric mods separately. It is a pain to search for something and then it comes up with a mod that can be played on my current version that I use, but uses a different mod loader. However, I don't want creators to go through the trouble of creating two separate mods that do the same thing just because they wanted the mod for both Forge and Fabric.

    in reply to Cat Modder's comment, i am not familiar with the create mod but immersive portals has both a forge and fabric version so they would have just been using both mods in the same loader

    It is theoretically possible to make forge and fabric mods compatible. The Patchwork Project is aiming to allow forge mods to run on fabric. This, however, is way outside what curseforge has the time or reason to do. If the patchwork project is ever completed, a curseforge integration might be nice, but that will likely be far in the future, if at all.

    for Cat Modder's comment: yes that video did exist, because immersive portals has a forge version. in fact, at the beginning of that video he mentioned how he could not have pehkui, the size changer mod, installed because create is a forge only mod.

    As others noted - this is not something that can be supported.
    We will, however, provide indication that a mod within the list isn't compatible, and are looking to also add a quick download button to replace it with the modloader counterpart (for example - replacing a Fabric mod with the Forge file of the same file IF AVAILABLE.

    Actually, if my half-dead brain can think straight I saw a theomonty make a video with the Create mod and the Immersive portals mod, if that worked, than were at an beginning to the next modder, one who can combine the 2 leading mod loaders.

    I wonder if someone can make a minecraft installation like forge but also includes fabric capabilities.

    The problem Is that Forge and Fabric do not work together. You can't make the same rules work differently. Forge and Fabric do not have the same rules.

    This idea, while being useful, is not something within Curseforge's control. They do not make Fabric nor Forge. This is something that needs to be taken up with the dev's the modloaders themselves, or the modding community in general.
