There are different kinds of Minecraft mods out there, believe it or not. Some mods add new content to the game and that’s simple enough. Other mods actually change the way the game works, or modify game mechanics to change how things happen, or to alter the schedule on which they happen. Any mod that adds new dimensions and portals for crossing over to them is a good example of this. The LiteLoader mod 1.12/1.11.2/1.10.2 is really more of a utility of add-on than a mod. It acts as a very basic mod loader and is designed to work with only the most basic mods – the ones which don’t modify game mechanics.
If you just think of the LiteLoader mod as the perfect tool for managing lightweight mods, that would help a lot with understanding exactly what it is. Because the mods meant to be loaded up by LiteLoader are supposed to be small incidental things in the first place, you should never have compatibility issues between your Forge and FML mods and the mods you use LiteLoader to manage. This mod loader is actually designed to work alongside other, larger programs and take some of the strain off of them by picking up those mods which are easier to manage.
Most of the small, easily managed mods available for Minecraft are all meant for use client-side anyhow, so there’s no reason for any modder to overlook LiteLoader. It is the perfect loader for managing small mods like Chat Tools, or Mini Maps, as well as other mods which focus on changing the HUD (heads-up display) or the user interface (GUI). There’s also a nice feature which looks for outdated mods and refuses to load them, so you never have to worry about Minecraft crashing out again because the current game client and the installed mod in question aren’t compatible. LiteLoader just won’t load it.
Perhaps the best part about the LiteLoader mod is that it is easy to install and simple to use. The interface only takes a couple minutes to figure out and master. The only issue is learning the threshold between mods which are simple enough for LiteLoader to manage and mods which are so complex that they require something more substantial to make them work, like Minecraft Forge 1.12. There is no clear guide on this, so you should be willing to try (and fail) to install mods with LiteLoader until you understand it better.
