    This is Boden’s grandmother trying to learn how to do Mods for Minecraft so I can teach him how to do it. I downloaded 7-zip and got a toolbar that I had to get rid of. Now when I try to download the death chest, it wants me to download a livid download manager. Do I have to get that to get the death chest mod?

    If he is going to do this, I would like him to be able to do it without loading his computer with junk.

      No, a lot of the minecraft mod authors unfortunately put their downloads behind adfly “watch an ad for 5 seconds and then find a link to skip the ad” crap, and the shady advertisers take the chance to fool users (sigh)

      For death chest mod, there’s a link “Download (Direct)” that skips this crap. For other mods, I must say ad-block and a ads skipper addon (eg. the userscript http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/118033 ) are a must 🙁
