Forge mod, also known as FTB, is a mod which helps you make backups of your worlds. This is a very useful mod, especially for those who play vanilla Minecraft and do not want to lose their progress in the middle of a game. But you have to understand that there are many limitations in this mod. In this article, I will explain the limitations of Forge backup and how to use it effectively.
First of all, you have to understand that this is a mod which supports only Forge versions 1.3. As such older versions will not be supported by Forge Backup. To play with Forge backups, you will need to install the older version of Forge, which can be downloaded from the official website for free. Once you have installed the older version of Forge, you will have to restart your computer in order to make backups. However, it is easier to make backups when your computer is not yet started.
Secondly, one of the limitations of Forge backup is that it cannot be used while in game. To use it, you will have to restart the game after you have uninstalled the mod. This restriction was implemented so that people will not get bored and leave the game unexpectedly while trying to use this mod. This is also implemented to prevent cheating by users who use forge world edit applications and attempt to edit other players’ worlds.
Moreover, some FTB backup modders have introduced a feature called ‘auto backup’. With auto backup, the modders will do backups even if you are away from your computer or do not have enough space on your computer to store the backups. To use this feature, you will have to enable the mod’s auto backup option in the options menu.
Another limitation is that older versions of Forge will only allow you to create backups with version 5. Make sure you download the latest forge version. Otherwise, you will not be able to use forge backups to make sure you are not banned by Valve.
If you encounter any problem with the mod, do not hesitate to ask the creators of the mod for support or help. You can use the contact form on the website of the forge tools to send them an email. You might also want to send them a message on the forums of the website to ask questions. Always remember that older versions of FTB are harder to work with, so make sure you can at least know how to make use of older backups before trying out something complicated.
