- Use Not Enough Items or another mod that shows recipes in game.
This Mod is designed to work on the Client and Server
- Download and install
- Open that forge download with an archiver. I recommend 7zip or Winrar.
- Open the minecraft.jar file with your archiver (7zip, Winrar).
- Copy the files from inside the forge download into the minecraft.jar (minecraft_server.jar) file.
- On Windows and Linux, delete the META_INF folder.
On Mac, go into the META_INF folder and delete only the files which begin with ‘MOJANG’. Leave the rest untouched.
- Close both archives and run your client once. Exit the game without loading or creating a world.
- If you have done everything right, you will now have a ‘mods’ folder in your .minecraft (.minecraft_server) folder.
- Now put the Carboniferous.zip in the mods folder and run!
