The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I am taking my first steps into mods. I want the carpet mod. But I always play in newest version. I can get carpet mod for 20.06a but the latest Forge (which my son says is a necessary part of this) is 1.15.
Something doesn't compute. If a 20.06 Forge is req'd for a 20.06 carpet mod, how is gnembon using carpet mod on his 20.06 videos?
What is the workaround?
Always look at what modloader a mod is for on Curseforge. If it's for Fabric it most likely has a Fabric icon or states in the mod's description. 1.13+ has new modloaders, Fabric is new from 1.14+ (Forge isn't the only modloader and hasn't always but I'm not going to get into Liteloader and all that which has been around since 1.5.2 to 1.12.2).
Carpet is for Fabric only. If you get confused on what mod is for what modloader, how to install Fabric and so on check my Forum Threads as I know this can be confusing and was to me at first but I got used to it really quickly even as someone used to mods.
The link above Majestyc2k1 provided will get you started with installing Fabric, if you want tutorials best to look on Youtube for those (like myself) that have covered Fabric mods heavily.
