You have already seen how easy it is to install Forge for Minecraft 1.11.2. Its installer simply creates a new profile (the uses of which we have already covered). In this article, I will show you how to install Liteloader, which is actually just generating a new profile in the same way that Forge did.
A mod-loader is simply a utility that is designed to do just that: load mods. They serve as technical foundations in the background of installations for an assortment of mods which introduce actual gameplay or aesthetic changes. Mod-loaders also enable mods which utilize them to be compatible with each other. There are a few different mod-loaders, however most mods use either Forge or Liteloader. Given that it is so essential, in this article I will show you how to install Forge and in the next, Liteloader.
In the last article of the series we covered the Minecraft 1.11.2 Launcher and profiles. Now it’s time to talk about Java.
The problem with the launcher is that it comes bundled with a two-year-old, 32-bit version of Java that can cause all sorts of weirdness and problems! The biggest of these is that it probably doesn’t use as much of your computer’s RAM as possible, so even though you can run Minecraft decently, it doesn’t always work as efficiently and smoothly as it could. In addition, a number of mods only list the latest Java version as compatible. This article will teach you how to install the correct or updated Java version and enable Minecraft to utilize it.
This article is the first in a series on installing popular 1.11.2 Mods approved on Empire Minecraft and related topics such as profiles, the launcher, Java and modloaders. We will first cover profiles as they are the foundation of mod and modloader installations, while the Minecraft launcher is where they are managed.

The Damage Indicators mod is a tool for displaying a mob or player’s health points, mainly.
The concept of the modification is pretty simple, and may seem unnecessary for some, but the small amount of change can make a big difference. In this review, I will show you the reasons why you should give Damage Indicators a try.
