Forge Dev Environment on Apple Silicon

There used to be a bunch of hoops to jump through but I'm pretty sure the latest versions of forge for most recent versions will just work on m1 chips. Just go download a JDK compiled natively for arm64 and it will be massively faster than emulating with Rosetta 2. Make sure you get the right java version for your mc version!

If you need to use a strange version of forge for some reason, these documents go over the problems I originally encountered and the hacky fixes I used.
