Do mods do any damage to computers? My computer isn't so powerful. My parents say that they can fudge up our computer. Also, is MCPatcher safe? Will that mess up our laptop?

My computer isn't that powerful either, I've installed a few mods and it's working fine. I wouldn't recommend any shader mods, though. MCPatcher is completely safe, though I'd recommend getting Optifine instead as it has similar capabilities to MCPatcher and can also give you more options for reducing lag.

Mods from unreliable sources can steal passwords, etc.

Mods with at least two or three pages on this forum are pretty much guaranteed safe.

They won't mess it up unless you install something extremely crazy.

Mods don't do anything bad unless the author is shady.  If they just post a download link and say something the mod does without pictures or any real description, try to avoid it.

Most mods will not kill your computer; It's the ones that look shady that you want to stay away from.

Mods are dangerous, only play vanilla, always. It's safer that way. If you happen to download a mod, the creator will know where your location is and kill you a few days after. Happend with my brother. Good luck not downloading mods.

Mods Are Quite Safe As Long As You Download Mods That Are Reliable

So, Optifine is a built in MCPatcher?

Well, you tried to help a Topic that's 2 years old.

But, at least you tried :D

PS: If my posts are offensive, it's probably sarcasm.

technic launcher is one of the best ways to enjoy downloading mods easily without worry about messing things up. also because it comes with multiple profiles you can go from vanilla minecraft to whatever mods you want to use very easily (really just a click of a button)

Edit: just realised this was a revived thread. noone probably cares about it anymore
