Do not trust this site. there are many ads that say they are the download link and it is very hard to find the REAL download link. The ads that claim they are the download link give your computer viruses. Since this site has A LOT of ads leading to the virus sites, it should not be trusted because a site that has ads like this has something to do with the viruses, and that is NOT trustworthy AT ALL
This is a minecraft mod site. I have used this site for a while and I have never had problems with the mods*.
The only complaint about this site is that it has ADS everywhere! which can be misleading to trick people into downloading something malicious.
To Experience the best of this site I recommend an adblocker to block all the ads and be careful where you click.
The reason why there are so many ads is because they make money off of it, which they need to keep the server running. The Download link will be a BLUE HYPERLINK WITH TEXT (E.g. Download Optifine for Minecraft 1.6.2). ALL THE OTHERS ARE MISLEADING
*Edit: Ever since 1.7.4, the mod versions are misleading. So they may have an article saying a mod is updated to 1.7.4 but is only an older version say 1.6.2
This is one of many sites notorious in the Minecraft community for rehosting other people's work, often with false information (saying that a map is for 1.8 when it's for 1.6, etc.). Modders report that their binaries have been changed, and many users report malware/viruses.
They deliberately take advantage of kids' lack of net-savvy, so I rate it unsuitable for children (although it has no adult/shocking content AFAIK)
The site has some advertisements disguised as download links, I got a Trojan virus from a misleading download link. be careful when installing. Make sure to not click on a advertisement that looks like a download link. I recommend an ad-blocking tool to help find the actual link.(Edit) I recommend just not using this website. if you wish to install mods or texpack. please just use planetminecraft, and find out how to manually install mods (like I did) without using the mod install helpers on this webpage.
Downloads listed are not what they claim. They list mods for "1.3.2" when the author has not even updated the mod for 1.3.1 yet. Website author is lying and only trying to make money from the website hits.
Watch out! I got two warnings for suspicious activity from avast while downloading a program MCPatcher (which, by the way, I never had problems with in the past). Use this site with caution if you do go here, but I recommend you listen to the others.
Installers contain malware/adware.
Has downloads that aren't for the game, and are dangerous.
watch out minecraft downloader installs Trojans and Pup applications
I tried to download a minecraft mod but avira internet security said the downloaded file is a trojan then i exit the site.
