Automatic mod installation when joining a forge server

Recommended Posts

I still don't understand why this is not a thing yet but there should be a feature in the for the new 1.13.2 forge for servers where you can set mods for players to automaticly download on there game when they join your server.

So bassicly you would have a mods-client folder in your forge server folder where you would put all the mods that a client needs in order to join your server and if a player joins your server without these mods it would automaticlly download it and "reload" there game so that they don't have to manually install every mod in order to join a server and it would also means that you don't have to "give" your mods to the player since it could be just "streamed" in there game without actually giving them access to the jar files.

No.

Mods are fully fledged applications that run on your computer.

A malicious server could simply put a mod in that folder that installed malware on the client's computer.

 

Not going to happen.

True did not think of that.

No. Locked.

This is my Forum Signature, I am currently attempting to transform it into a small guide for fixing easier issues using spoiler blocks to keep things tidy.

 

As the most common issue I feel I should put this outside the main bulk:

The only official source for Forge is https://files.minecraftforge.net, and the only site I trust for getting mods is CurseForge.

If you use any site other than these, please take a look at the StopModReposts project and install their browser extension, I would also advise running a virus scan.

 

For players asking for assistance with Forge please expand the spoiler below and read the appropriate section(s) in its/their entirety.

Spoiler

Logs (Most issues require logs to diagnose):

Spoiler

Please post logs using one of the following sites (Thank you Lumber Wizard for the list):

https://gist.github.com/100MB Requires member (Free)

https://pastebin.com/: 512KB as guest, 10MB as Pro ($$$)

https://hastebin.com/: 400KB

Do NOT use sites like Mediafire, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, or a site that has a countdown before offering downloads.

 

What to provide:

...for Crashes and Runtime issues:

Minecraft 1.14.4 and newer:

Post debug.log

Older versions:

Please update...

 

...for Installer Issues:

Post your installer log, found in the same place you ran the installer

This log will be called either installer.log or named the same as the installer but with .log on the end

Note for Windows users:

Windows hides file extensions by default so the installer may appear without the .jar extension then when the .log is added the log will appear with the .jar extension

 

Where to get it:

Mojang Launcher: When using the Mojang launcher debug.log is found in .minecraft\logs.

 

Curse/Overwolf: If you are using the Curse Launcher, their configurations break Forge's log settings, fortunately there is an easier workaround than I originally thought, this works even with Curse's installation of the Minecraft launcher as long as it is not launched THROUGH Twitch:

Spoiler
  1. Make sure you have the correct version of Forge installed (some packs are heavily dependent on one specific build of Forge)
  2. Make a launcher profile targeting this version of Forge.
  3. Set the launcher profile's GameDir property to the pack's instance folder (not the instances folder, the folder that has the pack's name on it).
  4. Now launch the pack through that profile and follow the "Mojang Launcher" instructions above.

or alternately, 

 

Fallback ("No logs are generated"):

If you don't see logs generated in the usual place, provide the launcher_log.txt from .minecraft

 

Server Not Starting:

Spoiler

If your server does not start or a command window appears and immediately goes away, run the jar manually and provide the output.

 

Reporting Illegal/Inappropriate Adfocus Ads:

Spoiler

Get a screenshot of the URL bar or copy/paste the whole URL into a thread on the General Discussion board with a description of the Ad.

Lex will need the Ad ID contained in that URL to report it to Adfocus' support team.

 

Posting your mod as a GitHub Repo:

Spoiler

When you have an issue with your mod the most helpful thing you can do when asking for help is to provide your code to those helping you. The most convenient way to do this is via GitHub or another source control hub.

When setting up a GitHub Repo it might seem easy to just upload everything, however this method has the potential for mistakes that could lead to trouble later on, it is recommended to use a Git client or to get comfortable with the Git command line. The following instructions will use the Git Command Line and as such they assume you already have it installed and that you have created a repository.

 

  1. Open a command prompt (CMD, Powershell, Terminal, etc).
  2. Navigate to the folder you extracted Forge’s MDK to (the one that had all the licenses in).
  3. Run the following commands:
    1. git init
    2. git remote add origin [Your Repository's URL]
      • In the case of GitHub it should look like: https://GitHub.com/[Your Username]/[Repo Name].git
    3. git fetch
    4. git checkout --track origin/master
    5. git stage *
    6. git commit -m "[Your commit message]"
    7. git push
  4. Navigate to GitHub and you should now see most of the files.
    • note that it is intentional that some are not synced with GitHub and this is done with the (hidden) .gitignore file that Forge’s MDK has provided (hence the strictness on which folder git init is run from)
  5. Now you can share your GitHub link with those who you are asking for help.

[Workaround line, please ignore]

    • Please stop capitalizing every word... You need to call NetworkHooks.openGui on the server to open your GUI. You also need to register your ScreenFactory on the client.
    • 1.12 is no longer supported on this forum. Please update to a modern version of Minecraft to receive support.
    • Server Version: 1.17.1 Server IP: enhanced.snorkycraft.com Discord:http://discord.snorkycraft.com/ Snorky Craft World is a playground I have designed for myself and friends to enjoy minecraft, with just some difficult enhancing and extra Contents, i'm an active player on my own server, grinding side by side with players. I do have a TLDR down at the bottom, if you're too lazy to read ;P. Showcase:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=is7JoucsK0s A short 6 minutes video we have showcasing someone fun time in 2 lairs! a mini-world boss and a world boss. Things we have! ● KeepInvetory - You keep inventory but whenever you die, all your tools and armours lose durability. ● GriefPrevention - Well just your good ol' land claiming area to protect base from griefers ● mcMMO - Well, most of you might know what plugin is this, it's the kind of plugin that help you grow stronger the more you play! ● EliteMobs - Enhancing the mobs around you the more stronger you grow! and also allowing us to replace, create contents for you to enjoy! ● PlaytimeRewards Some Fun Features! Ridable Certain Animals, 6-Rows Enderchest!, Bonus ClaimBlocks, and a very spicy rank! ● Some Funzies Feautures: Editable armor stands! want to decorate your home and make it more lovely? you can with editable armorstands!, 6-Rows barrels! just some extra storage for your home! ● Some...lore related features: Some kind of strange disease have infected the cows... they attack!, Chicken are very feisty! Gameplay Changes ● Disabled Spawners AI, what's the point of spawners, they just ruins the game and there's nothing fun about it, also spawners aren't very useful in my server due to how it's setup. ● Removed The End world exploration! replaced it with the final boss stage for a very long grinding journey, one of our grinder has exactly 60+ Hours of playtime and he only reached Prestige 2! there are 10 Prestiges in total in order to have the power to defeat the new Ender Dragon Boss ● Progression changes, The end goal is not just getting to the ender dragon, is ranking up a custom rank system and farming custom items in order to grow stronger, strong enough to challenge very hard bosses! ● Monsters grows stronger the better equipped you are! and the more stronger you grow they harder challenges/dungeons/lairs you can fight! TLDR: You Join, You Lookaround, You Mine, You Build a House, You farm and gear up, Realized Diamond gearset or netherite gearset full set is so weak!, you start to farm small low level dungeons, you gain great gear, you defeat low level boss, you rankup, you get stronger gear, you repeat this progress so many times you have to prestiges too!, it's pretty fun! i been grinding 10-12 hours a day because once you get going it's very enjoyable.
    • The inputs are just a template- in this case it's two strings, but they can be ints, chars, etc. or none at all, depending if you need to initially send info across sides. I'd suggest reading Forge's documentation on packets first if you haven't used them before:  Forge Docs Networking You usually send the packet by invoking handler methods: ModPacketHandler.sendToServer(new C2SPacketForContainer(input1, input2)); Where the handler class has packet registration and the methods: The register methods are called in common setup.
    • Yeah the VillagerUtil was used in conjunction with the POI Forge registry, but you're right it's superfluous and I should stick with the simpler way. Thank you Ash
