Well, I've asked on the minecraft forums itself but it seems I get a better response/more helpful people here. I know a lot of E members are minecrafters, and quite a few of those are tech-savvy ones.
I want to make a small server using the program Evolve. (It is similar to Hamachi, but better I hear.) The catch is, I want mods in it to. Naturally, I get the minecraft 1.6.4 (Yes its old-ish) server file, and the forge 1.6.4 for server file into a miniature folder named Server. At first, it kind of worked.
I opened the forge server application with java, it opened, made a world, loaded all the .txt files and other files into the server folder, and it was okay. I managed to get in the server, and it worked lag-free. Problem was, none of the mods showed up and if I placed a block or something from the mod into the world, it would disappear. I know for sure that the mods will work together in Single Player just fine without any complications.
Edit: I also have a problem with making/running .bat files. I put in the java text I am suppose to and labeled it startserver.bat but when I go to run it, it only opens in notepad even though it says it is a .bat file.
So, I tried to find a way to re-make the world, thinking maybe I had to delete the current one. I deleted the World folder and the server folders (The .txt and the other one.) because that is how I re-made worlds last time. It didn't work, and kept the same one.
Then I tried completely cleaning out the server folder, starting all over, and putting the mods and config inside before I started it up the first time. The forge server program loaded up as if the spawn/world was already made, and ignored the mods once again. I emptied the entire folder, so why is the same world still coming back?
I emptied it again, and now, when I start up the server, none of the other files will even load. Not the server.txt or the other necessary ones, but the server will open and load the world. I haven't tried to connect to it like that since to me it seems like it wouldn't work.
I'm not sure what else to do, but I really want to play on a server with my friend and no one else, with the mods we have and not packs from other servers.
