Server Development


Recommended Posts



I am working in a mod that is only for server-side based on chat commands. For this I need to check if the client is playing on a private server or in single player mode.


I tried using the "Minecraft.getMinecraft().getCurrentServerData().isOnLAN()" method but it crashed the game somehow. So. Does anyone know how to achieve this?

You can't reference client-only classes like

if the server is the dedicated server.

Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.

Thanks for your answer. Very much appreciated.




Turns out that I can't do a single thing with MinecraftServer since it is not a singleton object and I need to have an instance of it to properly use it apparently. Do you know how can I get an instance of it? Or another way to check if it is running a server in dedicated mode? The only members I see in MinecraftServer are USER_CACHE_FILE, which is a File, getCurrentTimeMillis(), which returns the current time in milliseconds, and a main method.


Also, I am programming in Scala, which is supposedly supported by Forge.




Nevermind. I just discover that with an EntityPlayer instance I can call the getServer() method. Thank you very much.
