Does anyone use a simple program for adding mods to minecraft on a Mac? I use McPatcher for texture packs which nice and simple, why can't i find something like this for mods? all i want at the moment is to add Zombe Fly mod and it's proving to be pretty annoying! I followed the instructions on a instructional video and he showed it working, i followed it exactly and it didn't work! i thought it might be something conflicting with it so i thought i'd start from fresh by deleting Minecraft and re-downloading it, patching it. Now i can't find the file in either library! How can this not be simpler as it is on Windows?!

Thanks for asking this question. It has helped me too. I have been looking for an easy way too but never considered asking here!

You can use Magic Launcher for this. You only need to put all the .class files in a zip file and rename it to a .jar file (or just put it directly into a jar file) then you can add those to your setup (way of launching Minecraft from within the Magic Launcher) and you'll see if the work together or not. If they do you can save it and play the game with those mods. You can even have multiple setups and change between them with the click of a button.

thanks so much! Magic Launcher works a treat! I couldn't get Zombe Mod to work though as it's got allot of stuff in there, but i found a simpler fly mod that works like fly in creative so it's working and without the need for Mod loader which had two errors for some reason. But thanks again i'll be recommending this program! :D

No problem, next time it might be better if you post this as a comment since it isn't a answer to your question but a comment on someone's answer (in this case mine) Oh and the order in which the mods are in the Magic Launcher determines the error checking. Try adding stuff like ModLoader on top and the actual mods on the bottom.

i was, it was getting two errors for some reason. Can you recommend a fly mod other than Zombe mod? Zombe has allot more in it than just fly so Magic Launcher can't use it, i have to isolate the fly mod part and consolidate it into one zip file, problem is i have no idea which files in Zombe are related to the fly mod :p the one i added is working fine except i take damage every time i return to the ground, i've died quite a few times now so i need something else.

I have no idea, my setup with Zombe Mod and others just works as it should, you do know it requires an external config.txt (or that's what it's called I think) that you need to add manually in your /users/you/library/application support/minecraft folder?

This is my setup with Zombe http://i.imgur.com/qV3eJ.png it does show error's but yellow ones don't really matter if it works.

ok i added the config file to my minecraft mod file and it's now working but i get this red error writing across my screen for Zombe, i then remove both Zombe and Modloader and add a different modloader zip file, that then get's errors and Zombe doesn't have any :p i can't play with all that text across my screen, any way to disable it?

Instead of removing Zombe why not read the red text and try to fix it, you can easily google it since the Zombe mod pack is pretty big (as in the amount of users)

When installing minecraft mods on a mac you must not delete the META_INF file even though it says to.

What I do to install mods is just uncompress the minecraft.jar file, back it up and delete it, then rename the folder "minecraft.jar" then stick all my mods into it, you don't need to recompress it either.

Well the good news about MCPatcher is that it in fact can install mods! I use it all the time on my mac (any it works on Windows too). The thing is that it can only install .class mods opposed to mineforge or modloader mods.
