I've made a couple of tools to hopefully help some of you mac users! PC users have simple ways of starting servers, installing mods, making backups, etc. Even when there isn't a default minecraft way of doing it, there is almost always a PC only tool to help. Today, I bring you the mac equivalent of these tools
Want to support development? You can do so in two easy ways! First (and simplest) is just to use the adf.ly links provided (click "Download through adf.ly" as opposed to "Download"). Second (if your feeling really generous) you can donate to me on my website or by following this link. Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the tools!
Minecraft Jar Extractor
Allows for simple installations of mods. Press "extract" and it will create an "mctmp" folder on your desktop which you can drag any mods class files into (you heard me, any mod!). After doing so, press "recompile" and the tool will auto-magically repack the jar, as well as handle the META-INF, allowing you to start up the game and play with your newly installed mods! Simple and to the point, this tool should help many of you out. Download v1.2 or Download v1.2 through adf.ly
v1.3 - Added ability to change extracted folder location - Fixed game breaking bug preventing mods from successfully installing v1.2 - Added 10.6 compatibility v1.1 - Fixed startup bug v1.0 - Public release
Minecraft Server Starter
A simple (though full featured) minecraft server starter. Windows users have a nice little exe to click on for starting their server, but mac users are stuck with a non-runnable jar file. This program allows you to pick a folder anywhere on your computer, automatically download the minecraft_server.jar to that folder, and then run the server from there. It even let's you toggle the gui! Configurable ram amounts coming in a future update. Download v1.1 or Download v1.1 through adf.ly
v1.1 - Added 10.6 compatibility v1.0 - Public release

That's all for now, but there is certainly more to come. I am open to requests, leave a comment below if you have any idea, or send me an email! You can view my other projects at my website, www.atlaswegman.com.
