I always play from my host machine, and have never had a problem. Though I do tend to play on beasts. Please don't ask for my specs though, because it'll just turn into a pissing contest. I don't care if that makes me seem illegitimate, it's for the sake of the conversation.
Anyway, server integration won't happen, and there's no way to simplify things such that you don't have to port forward or configure your network and IP.
Agree. My computer isn't great and I still run servers for me and some friends and play on the same pc. tbh this thread is pretty stupid, it takes all of 5 minutes to download, run, change properties, and play the world.
