1. Download things

  • FabricLoader is a lightweight mod framework that enables other mods.
  • VoxelMap is an in-game map mod that displays a minimap on your screen, allows you to save waypoints, and more.
  • OptiFine provides a lot of nice graphical features and a performance boost.

The mods mentioned above for version 1.15.2 are mirrored in this handy Dropbox folder.

To install these mods follow these steps.

  1. Download and install Java if you don't have it already
  2. Install and run Minecraft, ensure you have updated to and launched the latest version of Minecraft at least once.
  3. Download the latest version of Fabric Loader (mod loader); Use "Vanilla" and "Windows" for your download options
  4. Download the latest version of the Fabric API (REQUIRED!) and put it in your "mods" folder.
  5. Download the Fabric version of VoxelMap. (Make sure you download the latest file)
  6. If you want to use Optifine, you will need to download the latest version of Optifine and Optifabric. 1.15.2 Notes:
    • Optifine is not released fully for 1.15.2 yet, nor is Optifabric.
    • We find that you might have to remove the internal resource pack added by Optifabric in order for connected textures to fall back properly.

Feel free to use the other mods in the Dropbox folder!

2. Install Fabric (A mod loader)

Find the Fabric file that you downloaded and double click it. You should get a little installer window. Most of the time you can leave the settings as they are and click "Install". After clicking install, it should say "Done" above the install button.

3. Install your mods

Drag and drop the .jar files you downloaded for VoxelMap, Optifine and Optifabric in to the "mods" folder found in your minecraft directory. (Which is "%appdata%/.minecraft/mods") That's it. The next time you launch the game, it should say "fabric-loader-1.##.#" next to the Play button. (If not, click and select that profile.) And your plugins should be enabled when you are in the game.

LiteLoader has been abandoned and everyone is moving to Fabric.

3. Expand Java memory allocation

You might run into a insufficient memory error. The stock Java memory allocation for Minecraft is only 1GB. We recommend upping it to 4GB to accommodate larger worlds and resource packs.

  1. Launch Minecraft, in the launcher:
  2. Click "Launch options"
  3. Toggle "Advanced settings" on, and accept the warning
  4. Click the new profile that you named
  5. Toggle "JVM arguments" on
  6. Change -Xmx1G to -Xmx4G
  7. Click "Save"
  8. Click "News" to go back home
  9. Click the up arrow next to "Play" button and select the new profile
  10. Click "Play"

4. Install Resource Packs

We recommend two resource packs, Chroma Hills and Lithos HD Font. You're free to use others as well, with the exception of any X-Ray packs. Any resource pack that allows cheating is prohibited.

The resource packs mentioned above for version 1.15.2 are mirrored in this handy Dropbox folder.

  1. Once in-game, click "Options"
  2. Click "Resource Packs"
    1. Click "Open Resource Pack Folder"
    2. Copy the two files in the "Resource Packs" folder you originally downloaded from Dropbox, into this folder, keep the folder window open
    3. Go back in-game and click "Done"
  3. Click "Resource Packs" again
  4. You'll now see the two files listed under "Available Resource Packs"
    1. Click the right arrow of "ChromaHills" to add to "Selected Resource Packs"
    2. Click the right arrow of "Roboto Bold Font" to add to "Selected Resource Packs"
    3. Make sure Roboto Bold is above Chroma Hills in the list
    4. Click "Done"

You're all set!
