Which would make things a bit of a problem. As far as I know, ViveCraft (requiring Optifine) is rolling out now with Forge. Fabric isn't in the mix, though Fabric is what I'm using for the mods I enjoy. I'm ok with looking at Forge mods, I just haven't so far.
Schweet-freakin' horney-toads, I hope with the release of the mappings, "the community" can agree upon a framework for "let's all place nice together." LiteLoader *did* at one point play well enough with Forge, but obviously things are in a bit of a mess these days.
ever since the great rewrite of 1.7.10 to 1.8, seems like everyone ended up going there own way for a framework, some eve making there own mods load directly into the game.
