My wife and I created a 1.8.1 Multiplayer Server this week, using port forwarding. Does anyone know the method used to add mods such as Treecapitator or Flesh to Leather into such servers? Any help is appreciated.
MC 1.8.1, you have a limited choice of mods that require direct injection into the jar file. (neither of the ones you listed)
You are much better off using Minecraft v1.8.0 with Forge v1295(or whichever is current version by time you understand how) as it has at least one of the mods you want.
Check on minecraftforum.net in the mods(I am assuming your post will be Moderated soon and moved or removed for not being posted in the correct area) section clicking on any mod with the green box "1.8" in its posting tag, that will sort out the ones you MIGHT be able to use at least.
HOWEVER, I would highly suggest instead that you currently just playing vanilla 1.8.1 and reading up/ watching youtube videos, on how to run a vanilla 1.8.1 server, how to access and use command blocks, and play with a Customized world types settings. If you are just starting out on your Minecraft adventure there are many things to learn just from vanilla.
Thanks for the response. As for this being posted in the wrong area, I wasn't sure where to post this to begin with.
I've played MC for years now, and we've run small servers locally to play with friends, we're just looking for a way to improve the experience. I'll try what you suggested using the older version with Forge and we'll see how it goes.
Glad to be of limited help. I would go into more detail, but honestly I think jumping in with videos and tutorials you can find on the web and making your own mistakes is the best way to Learn it, so you actually know and understand!
I would be happy to help with questions, but it should be via PM, and it might take me a while to answer, the past two days have been exceptions to my free time, LOL)
(like with me, I am slowly making a resource pack with multiple texture files and animated textures files for a given block. It took some digging.)
