    Basically me and a friend have installed Galacticraft 1.6 with the basic components required to play. So how am I able to make a server with this mod on it?
    Thanks.

    It's easy as pie.
    1.) Download the Forge installer.
    2.) Click the server install button. Tell it the folder you want. Hit install.
    3.) Put the Galacticraft JAR's into the mods folder. You may have to create it.
    4.) Run the minecraftforge-universal.......jar

    IMPORTANT. If after you started the server you don't see a ForgeModLoader-server.log file something is wrong.

    Cherry Pie Instructions​

    Place cherries in medium saucepan and place over heat. Cover. After the cherries lose considerable juice, which may take a few minutes, remove from heat. In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cornstarch together. Pour this mixture into the hot cherries and mix well. Add the almond extract, if desired, and mix. Return the mixture to the stove and cook over low heat until thickened, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and let cool. If the filling is too thick, add a little water, too thin, add a little more cornstarch.

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

    Use your favorite pie dough recipe. Prepare your crust. Divide in half. Roll out each piece large enough to fit into an 8 to 9-inch pan. Pour cooled cherry mixture into the crust. Dot with butter. Moisten edge of bottom crust. Place top crust on and flute the edge of the pie. Make a slit in the middle of the crust for steam to escape. Sprinkle with sugar.

    Bake for about 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a rack to cool.

    That doesn't look simple to me.

    I know how to make pie by heart, so I have a bit of an advantage. It's easier than pie then. Also you can substitute fresh cherries for canned.

    Should the Server folder have a mods folder in it? or does the server not need the mods therefore only the client mods folder?

    I ask this because I finally got it going on the client, can mine ores tin aluminum etc, but when i connect to my server I cant find the ore anywhere.


    Server only has Libraries and World folder.

    thanks in advance for help :)

    When you install forge into the server and run it it makes a mods folder. Thats where you put the micdoodle and galacticraft jars. Assuming 1.6.2.

    Thats what i thought. Yes 1.6.2
    My server folder only has Libraries and World folder. No mods.
    I have used forgemod installer to install to the server folder, but all it makes is the Libraries folder. There are a number of folders in that, but no mods.

    Also, I get no errors.

    Here is exactly what my Server Folder has in it.

    Im not sure how the mods folder is generated on the server, because the forge installer isnt making one.

    Looks good. Are you running the Minecraft_server...exe, or the minecraftforge.....jar? You should be running the minecraftforge.....jar file. Or make a batch file.

    I see the problem. You need to download the Forge INSTALLER file, or download the minecraft_server.jar file and put the forge files in it manually. Try the installer though it's much easier.

    The forge installer file is:
    minecraftforge-installer-1.6.2-9.10.0.802.jar 4.073MB
    so that didnt seem to work.
    Is there instruction on how to merge these 2 java files? and do I have to create a mod folder myself in the minecraft server jar?

    thanks again for all the help, im a bit of a noob, but i feel im so close to getting this going! >.<

    When I run the installer and Tick Server. Point it at an Empty folder. It makes a libraries folder, and downloads the minecraft_server.1.6.2.jar. I made a mods folder. Copied the galacticraft jars into that folder and ran the minecraftforge-universal-1.6.2-9.10.0.802.jar file. It launched the minecraft server gui and I was done. Delete everything in that folder and start over.

    You can tell if forge is working, because it makes a ForgeModLoader-...txt file.

    Man when is Mic gonna up you to Moderator. Flash seems dead to some degree, we need someone else to mod when no other staff is here.
    And you seem to have a decent clue of what you're doing.

    Iono. Never asked him. I'm just here because I like this mod, and from what I've seen on the forums you could spend hours repeating the same thing over and over and over again. So I figured since I don't know how to code, I would help by babysitting the forums. Moderator is allot of responsibility. ;-)

    It will generate one IF you installed Forge correctly. I doesn't make one when you install forge, but it makes one when you run it with forge installed for the first time. You did not however. Like I said:
    You can tell if forge is working, because it makes a ForgeModLoader-...txt file.
    You did not have one in your folder.
    Ergo no forge. If you're still having issues you know where to go.

    Ok, so im going to put every step down that I do and provide a pic of the outcome.
    I cant see where I am going wrong.

    I run minecraftforge-installer-1.6.2-9.10.0.802.jar (4.073MB)
    I point it to a folder called %appdata%\Roaming\1Minecrafttestserver
    it installes the Libraries folder and a smaller version of the intstaller
    minecraftforge-universal-1.6.2-9.10.0.802.jar (1.756MB)
    and it downloads minecraft_server.1.6.2.jar (5.991MB)

    I run minecraft_server.1.6.2.jar

    It starts the server and makes all the server files in the main folder.
    This is what I end up with.

    I do not get a (ForgeModLoader-...txt file).

    Do I create a mod folder now without the forgeloader txt file showing up? or do i need it to make that txt file.
