LITEMOD File Extension

Have a problem opening a .LITEMOD file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what LITEMOD files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .LITEMOD file type?

The .litemod extension denotes the LiteLoader Mod (.litemod) file type, used exclusively with the LiteLoader mod-loading tool for Minecraft. A proprietary software by Mojang, Minecraft is a hugely popular platform-independent multi-player online game built around the idea of using a set of elementary square shapes for creation and exploration of entire sandbox worlds. Minecraft users actively engage in modding, with several different tools available for that purpose, including Forge, Optifine, and LiteLoader.

LiteLoader is a mod-loading tool for Minecraft that focuses on supporting non-intrusive ('lite') client-side game modifications (mods). A .litemod file represents such a mod designed for LiteLoader. Basically, it is just a regular compressed ZIP archive with a directory tree inside that holds the actual mod's contents.

When downloading .litemod files, web browsers would often replace the .litemod extension with .zip, basing on the actual MIME type. To be properly recognized and loaded, the mod file must have the .litemod extension and must be placed in the "mods" directory of your Minecraft data folder (e.g.: "%AppData%\.minecraft\mods").
