    How can I mod Minecraft on the Switch Lite? That doesn't seem unclear to me.

Mods on console have a pretty easy answer to that question.

1- If they give you the option, like with Skyrim, you can access a checked number of plugins. Pretty sure Skyrim is the only one with that tho.

2- You can't with a normal console. A homebrewed one maybe, but that is outside the scope of this site. (Homebrews jump into piracy real quick)

The thing is, for most mods, what you need to do is modify or add game files. 2 things that on consoles, where you can't access individual files, cannot do.

  • Bedrock edition does have some amount of mod support from mojang, so there is a easy way to add mods, the main thing is there arent many bedrock mods in general. I dont own bedrock edition so I cant really test how to do it tho.

  • I'm always very confused as to what is what in minecraft editions but that means its option 1. You have a few approved mods that you can activate, but if its not on the lisst, no dice. And really, it would be pretty surprising it works the other way. Couldnt believe console manifacturers would love to let a game run any code on their machine, most of it not being approved.

  • "Pretty sure Skyrim is the only one with that" If I recall correctly Fallout 4 gives an option to use mod(s), I don't own ps4 version of it so I don't know for sure though.

  • Never played both of them so I'm talking on reputation here; but I would guess Fallout runs like skyrim: A shortlist of mods that have been vetted by Bethesda and probably whatever console company you are playing on.

Yes you can use addons on Nintendo switch but you will need realms. There is a video from dakonblackrose it might help you

    I cannot see how this is supposed to help anyone. You didn't link to the video so we are clueless as to which one it is. Apr 5, 2023 at 17:12
