The 25 best Minecraft mods - updated! Now 1.3.2 compatible
If you can't wait for your favourite mod to make the jump to 1.3.2, you can easily rollback the game client to the previous, and widely supported, version 1.2.5.
1. Download the 1.2.5 Jar file from the Minecraft servers at http://assets.minecraft.net/1_2_5/minecraft.jar
2. Type %appdata% into either the Start Bar or the Run command prompt.
3. Open the .minecraft folder and, inside it, the bin folder.
4. Back the existing Minecraft.jar for when you want to upgrade back to 1.3.2, then copy and replace the 1.2.5 jar file into the bin folder.
Now, you're free to enjoy any of the great, sadly outdated mods available for the game. Mods such as:
Technic Pack: A huge bundle of mods that overhaul many aspects of the game to massively up the number of buildings and contraptions you can construct.
Mo Creatures: Adds 32 new species to the game, including crocodiles, foxes, ogres and werewolves.
Flans Mod: Fight them on the beaches, and in the forests and the mines and everywhere else with this pack full of World War 2 themed planes, vehicles and weapons.
Thaumcraft: Boosts the enchantment system massively with a bunch of powerful spells that can be added to weapons and items.
Gorgeous lighting effects and texture rendering tweaks to make Minecraft feel more alive than ever.
Water Shader: Gives water a moving, reflective surface to - shock of shocks - make it actually look and behave like water.
