    posted a message on Why is everyone beginning to move to NeoForge and how do you even make your own mod compiler?

    Hello! I am a new user of the Minecraft Forum, who has been playing Minecraft ever since the PS3 Edition. Ever since then, I've evolved to PC Java edition and know almost everything to know about Minecraft. However, I don't know much about the newer versions of Minecraft. Especially this new variant of Forge.


    Forge has been around for an understandably long time, as it's one of the most well-known mod loaders known to the PC side of Minecraft, aside from Fabric. Recently, there has been something else called 'NeoForge', and all of my favorite mods are moving to NeoForge instead of the usual Forge loader. This change, although seemingly good, is not on my part.


    Why? Well, to be frank, I don't understand why everyone is moving to 'NeoForge' when there's already Fabric and probably other lesser-known mod loaders which might be easier and simpler to use. Yes, I have read on a preview of a Reddit post since I cannot access the website directly through the device I'm using due to pre-added regulators, that Forge is probably going to be discontinued soon because they are moving to a different platform. I have no idea what else they may be doing, but what I do know is that people are moving to NeoForge.


    Another reason why I don't understand why people are migrating to NeoForge is because most of the mods that I use with NeoForge don't even register as valid .jar files. Maybe this is because I'm using TLauncher to play Minecraft. This is only because when I had migrated to my Microsoft account, I was hit with a paywall to re-buy Minecraft entirely. And because when I had looked for help on the Minecraft FAQ, I found no help. I also like using TLauncher because TLauncher shows Real-Time Debug information and also has a one-click install system for various mods, which most of them are my favorite.


    So, again, I don't understand why modders are even moving to NeoForge, and why Forge is even moving to a different platform in the first place. I also don't understand why people won't move to Fabric, and I really wonder what the future will hold for modded Minecraft. Someone please tell me what's goin' on...
