I've seen videos for Minecraft mods which add features like oil, pipes and guns. Where can I find these mods, and how do I install them on a Mac?

There reason you're not finding "minecraft mods for mac" might be because there's no such thing. Minecraft is a cross-platform Java game, so mods aren't platform specific. –  lunboks Sep 30 '11 at 13:33
You are talking about the latest mod pack featured in the Yogscast right, the technic pack? –  ProSay Sep 30 '11 at 15:17
The answers to this question are outdated because of the new launcher for Minecraft. –  jacen.garriss Oct 17 '13 at 14:10

  3. Go to the directory you just created.
  4. Open a new Window

You can use MagicLauncher to start minecraft with mods and you don't need to do any unzipping. –  Chris Nava Dec 26 '12 at 17:07
You're missing a step to recompress the folder. –  SevenSidedDie Apr 18 '13 at 4:24
That is not necesary, as the resulting folder is called minecraft.jar –  Joe the Person Apr 18 '13 at 22:09

You can use this too... with this tool you can add HD Texture patch and install Mods without "copy *.class in xxx.jar" only: select modfile (rar,zip) and include
