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?

This question came from our site for power users of Apple hardware and software.

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. – a cat 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

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
