Please....someone help my 10-year-old daughter. Crayfish mods NEVER WORK. It has got to the point these MODS are all she wants in life. I have followed the video on how to install Crayfish's furniture mod, TO THE TEE. Nothing. Yes, I am computer literate . Up until the beginning of 2015, I designed and sold Wordpress sites. So I'm not sure what I am missing. Your help will be greatly appreciated . Once I follow the video's instruction, the "mods" button doesn't even show once Minecraft is loaded. She has Windows 10. I am also using the newest version of Minecraft. But I have also tried 1.8 and 1.8.9 (once it said I needed to use 1.8 to run the mod. But when I changed over to 1.8 it still did not work) Someone, PLEASE help me, help her. Thank you so much.
I find the easiest way to install mods is using the Curse Launcher. Download that, log in with your Minecraft Forum account, go to the Minecraft tab, click "Create custom profile", choose the version of Minecraft (and Forge, though you probably want the most recent version) you want, create the profile, then click on it, press "get more content", search for Crayfish's furniture mod, click install, then you can play!
Then what? I installed through Curse. I then launched Minecraft (forge)....nothing. There is no step between clicking install through curse, and then you just launch minecraft and play? If so...that did not work either.
No one EVER use curse. Not only does it not work You see the mods load, you click create new world, then it just says error. After trying it several times it now crashes Minecraft the second it launches. Then...4 hours of work trying to get a single mod to work...it crashed my entire laptop. This is effen crazy.
Im sorry to hear that but I've been using curse for a long time and never have had a problem that bad most likely you are missing a necessary mod or your not using enough ram or too much, Also could be you simply can not run it.
From the looks of you not having a mods button, it sounds like you have not installed forge correctly or at all. Crayfish mods need Forge in order to work according to the version you are using. Crayfish mods do work for their corresponding forge version, and it is not too tricky to install. Have you tried installing forge for your desired version? If not I would be more than happy to help you to install it.
