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. – a cat Sep 30 '11 at 13:33

  1. Download the .ZIP file
  2. Extract it to some directory.
  3. Go to the directory you just created.
  4. Open a new Window
  5. Go to ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin
  6. Look for a file called minecraft.jar
  7. Rename that file to minecraft.jar.zip
  8. Unzip it
  9. Drag all files ending with .CLASS into the minecraft.jar FOLDER
  10. Delete the META-INF folder.
  11. You're done!
