So i have recently started running a local Minecraft Server to play with some friends and i am a little confused regarding Mods on server.
1- Is there any advantage installing the mod in the server(i.e. Forge + VoxelMap), since we still have to install them ourselves in our clients?
2- I have read that you can't run Forge and Plugins together on 1.15.2, so if Question 1 is NO, can't we just install the mods we want like Optifine and VoxelMap, and me being the owner i could install Plugins on the server? This way we have mods and plugins?
1. To play on a server, the PC (client) connecting MUST have the same mods and config files installed as on the server. Note: some mods are client-side only. Maps, I believe, are client-side only. Double-check the mods description.
