Custom LAN Port Mod allows for you to enter a custom port, IP, and MOTD*! I did not stop there. I saw the opportunity to add more features, and I did. Now you can edit almost everything you could edit on a normal, vanilla, server! I also added some basic options to get your LAN feeling a bit more like a real server. It’s like starting a server, but with your own Single Player worlds, and with your own Single Player mods.
How To Use it?
It’s very simple. First, go to Options > Multiplayer Options and edit the settings to your liking. After you are satisfied with the settings, go to one of your worlds. Press pause (ESC) and choose Open to LAN. Now, for the IP field, it is strongly recommended to keep it to the default value, unless you know what you are doing. The IP field should be you Local IP ONLY! You will get an error if you try to use your Public IP! In the port field, choose a port of your liking. 25565 is recommended, since it is the default on a real Minecraft server. If you want people outside your internet (Non-LAN) to join your game, port forward the port you entered. You can find more information on how to do that here, just choose your router model and follow the guide. Now, you’ve come to the final part! Just click Start LAN World, and watch your SinglePlayer world turn into a MultiPlayer Server! Now, if you port forwarded and want other people to join your server, give them your Public IP (you can find it here) followed by a “:” and your port number. For example, 0.0.0.0:25565. If you launched a server and you have a mod installed that adds a block or an item, make sure that everyone who joins your server has the same mods, too!
What commands are available?
/Back (Teleports you to latest deathpoint)
/Broadcast (Broadcasts a purple colored message to everyone on the server.)
/BanIp <IPAddress/Player> [reason] (name of player will be changed to his IP automatically.)
/BanList (lists people who are banned)
/Op /Deop /Fireball
/GetTime (Returns a nice representation of the current world’s time)
/Hat (Puts whatever item in your hand as a helmet!)
/ViewMOTD (View’s server MOTD)
And more to come!
