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