Quilt is in beta. Here be dragons - there may be issues, but we'll fix them as quickly as we can!

If you'd like to help us test Quilt, please feel free to install it, try it, and let us know how you get on!



Before getting started, you'll need to make sure you download a copy of the Quilt installer.

The Universal download will work on any computer with Java 17 or later properly installed -- but if you're on Windows, and you'd rather just use the Java installation that comes with Minecraft, then you can use the Windows download.

If you're not sure which to pick, use the Universal download. If you need to update your Java version, we recommend downloading it from Eclipse Adoptium.

Once you have a copy of the Quilt installer downloaded, follow these steps:

  1. If you haven't already, download a copy of the Minecraft launcher from the Minecraft website, and install it
  2. If you have the Minecraft launcher open, close it before continuing
  3. Find the Quilt installer you downloaded and run it
  4. Ensure that you have the Client tab selected
  5. Select the versions of Minecraft and Quilt Loader you wish to install
  6. Click the Install button

Assuming you left the Generate profile box checked, you'll notice that a new Quilt installation will have been created for you. Otherwise, you can click on the Installations tab at the top and create a new one, picking the new Quilt entry from the Version dropdown.

That's all there is to it - install some mods, launch your new installation, and have fun playing!

Installing Mods

Installing mods is a fairly simple process:

  1. Download the mods you'd like to install
  2. Open the Minecraft Launcher and click on the Installations tab
  3. Hover your mouse cursor over the Quilt installation you'd like to add mods to
  4. Click on the button that looks like a folder icon
  5. In the folder that opens, create a folder named mods if one doesn't already exist
  6. Copy your mod files into the mods/ folder
  7. Ensure you have also added the Quilted Fabric API/Quilt Standard Libraries bundle, which you can find on CurseForge or on Modrinth

Launch your installation, and the mods should be available immediately. If you run into any issues, please take a look at the troubleshooting page, or join us on Discord to ask for support!
