Minecraft Forge API for 1.8.1/1.7.10/1.7.2 is a must have mod (application layer) for almost every Minecraft player. Minecraft FORGE API is a custom tool which prevents two or more mods to collide/conflict with each other so they can’t crash your game. There are many mods out there which utilize files with similar names or code but Forge built-in ModLoader assigns them different ID’s so they can be recognized and installed properly thus keeping you away from compatibility issues.
