“What version of Minecraft is this mod version for?”

UPDATE: My mods now come with the MC version they’re intended for in the file name before the version number from 1.10.2 onwards. Just look for the bunch of numbers after the name but before the dash (-).


Hey guys,

I’ve been seeing a few posts asking what mod version is for what version of Minecraft, so I’d just like to point out this old post of mine from a while back that explains how my version numbering works.

Anyhow, let’s get to it:

  • The version number starts with a number equal to or larger than 2. This is the start of the new versioning system I’m currently using. Mods with this versioning system will require iChunUtil.
    • 2.X.X is for Minecraft 1.6.2/4
    • 3.X.X is for Minecraft 1.7.2
    • 4.X.X is for Minecraft 1.7.10
    • 5.X.X is for Minecraft 1.8.0
    • 6.X.X is for Minecraft 1.10.2 (1.8.9, 1.9.0 and 1.9.4 do not exist because I have no mods on those that use this system)
  • The version number is <Minecraft Version>-1.X.X. These mods have the MC version labelled next to the download and does not require iChunUtil.
  • The version number starts with 0.X.X. These mods would normally have the MC version labelled next to the download, since it deviates from my norm. The only mods fitting this category are Morph and any ModJam-build versions of mods.
  • The version number is 1.X.XvY. The “1.X.X” denotes the Minecraft version while the “vY” part denotes the build for that version of Minecraft. Basically, <Minecraft>v<Build>. If the version is just 1.0.X, it is for Minecraft 1.5.X.

I’ll probably update this list in the future and link back here so that people don’t get confused and stuff. If you stumbled upon here looking for a version number that’s after the listed versions, try to go logically in order of major Minecraft releases and you should have your answer.

Some mods may have a “Deobf” download. If you’re not a modder, you probably won’t need this.



Oh. I probably should add that PortalGun and Gravity Gun are skipping 1.7 entirely. Because reasons. Some of it being life (I’ve moved to Ireland!), some of it being code-related. So please, just stop asking for it. I’ll try my best to bring it back in 1.8, GraviGun first then PortalGun after.

    perhaps you could update your “Why are your mod version numbers so weird?” FAQ to this post

    I’m disappointed to hear that PortalGun and GravityGun won’t be updated for 1.7; I’ve been coming here daily to check for an the updated versions. Hopefully they’ll be back in 1.8, keep doing what you do best iChun!

    I came here looking for an update for PortalGun for 1.7.10 as well, but I’m actually glad there’s news about it just skipping rather than -no news- or even just having the mod die off. Thanks for your hard work, and I’m sure I’ll survive without it for 1.7.

    Do what you need, settle in with your new home, and we’ll all be here for PortalGun and GravityGun in 1.8.

      If you’re going to try to get a free minecraft account, at least spam a website where you can remove the message.

    when do you plan on making the Anti-chamber mod?

    • Timdeuces March 25, 2015 6:53 am  Reply

      How would that work? It’s got many context-sensitive mechanics.

    Wait, I’m trying to install portal gun and iChunUtil 2.4.0 (I think, I don’t have my mods list in front of me) crashes the game. I’ll try downloading an older version, but I just thought you might want to know.

    and its really hard to just add (MC – 1.6.4) beside the vesion numbers on the download page?

    • Gustavo6046 February 25, 2015 7:39 am  Reply

      Maybe he can’t, because deobf doesn’t lets him to. Also, yo man, I want to clarify that his version number system is good as it is, if you can’t live with it, then cheers and fuck off. He is now working hard in something even bigger than the Pigzilla that felt from the sky, and so does me, in avaiabling GravGun and PortalGun for 1.7.10.

    So…the morph mod says it should be put into 1.7.10 and that’s what I’m doing..but it keeps displaying an error after the game launches but before the title screen shows. Plzz help. 🙁

    Cheers, iChun.
    I want to point you out some things.
    First, Ireland = fuck. Way too much noise, lack of nature, conflicts with the Britanic Ireland etc. I travelled there one single day one day and I’m glad I didn’t stayed for much more. Here back in Brazil = shit too, but not as conflicting. Only intellectually ridiculous politics. However St. Georgia is a big marvel, and that I can tell from photos done by Google sattelites!
