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?!

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.

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.
