Custom LAN Port Mod

Or Custom LAN Mod

(since a lot has changed since I released it, it's not just a port anymore.)




What is this?
This mod allows for you to enter a custom port, IP, and MOTD*! I did not stop there. I saw the opportunity to add more features, and I did. Now you can edit almost everything you could edit on a normal, vanilla, server! I also added some basic options to get your LAN feeling a bit more like a real server. It's like starting a server, but with your own Single Player worlds, and with your own Single Player mods.
*Stands for Message Of The Day. Visible under your server name in the servers list.

What are the requirements?
None at all! This mod doesn't need anything to run. Other than Minecraft, of course Posted Image.

How do I install it?
Ah. The infamous question asked by many. Yet, it almost always has the same answer. Follow the steps:
Forge:
  • Download the Forge version of the mod
  • Put it in your coremods folder
  • Profit
Other:
  • Download the mod
  • Backup your minecraft.jar
  • Delete the META-INF folder from your minecraft.jar
  • Extract the mod into your minecraft.jar
  • Profit

How do I use it?
It's very simple. First, go to Options > Multiplayer Options and edit the settings to your liking. After you are satisfied with the settings, go to one of your worlds. Press pause (ESC) and choose Open to LAN. Now, for the IP field, it is strongly recommended to keep it to the default value, unless you know what you are doing. The IP field should be you Local IP ONLY! You will get an error if you try to use your Public IP! In the port field, choose a port of your liking. 25565 is recommended, since it is the default on a real Minecraft server. If you want people outside your internet (Non-LAN) to join your game, port forward the port you entered. You can find more information on how to do that here, just choose your router model and follow the guide. Now, you've come to the final part! Just click Start LAN World, and watch your SinglePlayer world turn into a MultiPlayer Server! Now, if you port forwarded and want other people to join your server, give them your Public IP (you can find it here) followed by a ":" and your port number. For example, 0.0.0.0:25565. If you launched a server and you have a mod installed that adds a block or an item, make sure that everyone who joins your server has the same mods, too!


What commands are available?
  • /Back (Teleports you to latest deathpoint)
  • /Broadcast <Message> (Broadcasts a purple colored message to everyone on the server.)
  • /Ban <Player> [reason]
  • /BanIp <IPAddress/Player> [reason] (name of player will be changed to his IP automatically.)
  • /Unban <Player>
  • /UnbanIp <IPAdress>
  • /BanList (lists people who are banned)
  • /Kick <Player> [reason]
  • /Op <Player>
  • /Deop <Player>
  • /Fireball
  • /Lightning
  • /God [OptionalPlayerName]
  • /GetTime (Returns a nice representation of the current world's time)
  • /Hat (Puts whatever item in your hand as a helmet!)
  • /Heal [OptionalPlayerName]
  • /PM <Player> <Message>
  • /Save-All
  • /Save-Off
  • /Save-On
  • /Stop
  • /SetHome
  • /SpawnMob <MobName> [X] [Y] [Z]
  • /Home
  • /ViewMOTD (View's server MOTD)
  • /SetWarp <WarppointName>
  • /Warp <WarppointName>
  • /RemoveWarp <WarppointName>
  • /WarpList
  • /Spawn
  • /SetSpawn

  • And more to come!

I just installed this, and it works great. Finally my roommate can save Waypoints from Rei's Minimap when he joins. A comment on the MOTD though, it doesn't seem to allow the Entities Radar function to work. Is this a true MOTD, or just a description under the LAN Server?

Well that's what a MOTD is, basically, so what exactly do you mean by real MOTD? Another question, is the Entities Radar function built in into Rei's Minimap? If so, I'll look into it and try to fix the bugs. Thank you for the feedback! :)

What I mean by real MOTD is text that appears on screen when you first log in to the server.

Yes, I was speaking about Rei's Minimap entities radar. I know it's not your mod, but I was hoping the MOTD could be used to enable entities and cave mapping on a LAN server. Rei has stated that you need MOTD functionality to set the variables. That mod actually uses what I consider a MOTD. When you open a world, it will display how many waypoints were loaded.

That's not a true MOTD, that's merely Rei's functionality. However, if you look on the Rei's thread, there's a small MOTD mod that you can install to provide the functionality for enabling radar. For single player/LAN worlds, you want to use the client version.

I have a "crash" when I try to load a world. I have forge installed, but I don't think that it is going to make problems :s, it doesn't crash, it just stop working. :/ (I use 1.4.5)

Oh, I see. Then no, it's not to what you refer as a real MOTD, it is just the description under your server :).

When I updated Minecraft to 1.4.4 (and 1.4.5 now), no one has been able to join my minecraft LAN world. When they try to, it just says connection timed out. Even when we type in the actual IP of the LAN world into the Direct Connection, it still says the same thing. This is unrelated to your mod, but do you have any Idea why? Help would be greatly appreciated... And I love the mod ;)

Hmm... did you port forward your port? If yes, then your IP might have changed. Go back into your router and double check everything ;).

Forge version seems to be a bit unstable. For now, I suggest sticking to the other two versions.

You could, but it would be buggy. No worries, though, Forge version is fixed now ;).
