I have gone to multiple websites to download the .zip files that I want, but I don't know how to get the mods to either show up in game, or how to change the launch options to give my game the mods. I am completely new to modding and know almost nothing about getting started. Any help appreciated.
Most mods use the .jar file format, not .zip. If the files download as zips, its probably your OS or browser settings changing the file format. Unless the mod specifically requires it in zip format, Forge won't read zip files.
