    posted a message on Help a Momma out - can't download mods
    Quote from terise»

    I have the mods but it keeps downloading as "explorer" file. In my "Downloads" folder it show that it is there and a .jar folder, when I try to open the folder, it opens as an internet explorer window and nothing happens.

    So I don't now what to do. I don't know why her computer is insisting on open a .jar file with explorer. I have the latest version of Java, but....but...I don't know what!

    Hello Terise. :)

    You don't need to open the Jar file. You would normally search %appdata% which will bring you to the 'roaming' directory. From here, you should find the .minecraft folder.

    Minecraft mods that come in .jar or .zip files will go into the Forge 'mods' folder. You don't need to open or extract the mod contents anywhere or 'launch' the mod file. You can simply drag the mod onto the desktop and then drag the mod into the 'mods' folder.

    Come to think of it, I don't think that the "Helpful Villagers" mod is even updated to the 1.9 version of Forge. The most stable release is for the Minecraft version 1.7.10.

    The links that IHazFury gave you are very helpful, I suggest you check them out!

    posted a message on [Spigot] [Permissions] How to set SimpleAlias permissions? How to set regular permissions?


    I decided to rent a server at the website server.pro, which I've been having fun with. I don't have the means to run my own proper server at the moment, so I'll be using them instead.

    I wanted a way to set up player aliases/nicknames, and a way to set up areas where creative mode is allowed, or maybe have players set up lots that they own, where players are allowed to change their game mode.

    The Problems...

    Please do forgive me, but I honestly don't know how to do anything! XD

    I've used the serverpro control panel to install Spigot for 1.8 and it works smoothly across all 1.8 versions, and I've installed SimpleAlias. But I don't know what to do and the wiki for it isn't helpful.

    I also have no idea how I can set up admins and moderators, or edit what permissions they have. (Other than setting up an Operator.)

    I guess I'm just not as tech savvy as most, and when I google search, all I find are tutorials and help threads that are from 2011. (Although I admit that I haven't done extensive research on the subject, as I am busy as heck.)


    - How do I set up permissions for all players to set their nick name? (Using the SimpleAlias plugin?)

    - What can I use so that players can set up/claim their own lots? (For Spigot, for the game version 1.8.0?)

    - How do I edit/set the basic permissions for all players? (Including myself?) Such as Operators, Moderators, Admins, etc...

    Other Notes

    I've been fiddling with this server for a few days now. It's probably going to be private for a while, since it was only for me and my sister.

    Hello, dropping by again after a long wait.

    Sorry for my inactivity, I've been very busy. (I understand if I was unwhitelisted xD ) I'll finally be able to hop back onto the server (and start adventuring properly!) by Friday or Saturday afternoon.

    If I need to re-enter my application, that's okay too.

    Sorry for my inactivity. I'm pretty busy, but I might be able to drop by again at Friday or Saturday afternoon.

    Cami might still be able to play, though.

    Just had to drop by and say that I'll be on by Friday or Saturday afternoon, sorry, I got super busy.

    I hope i'll still be white listed by then! If not, I don't mind re-applying, maybe again at a later date.

    Cool, thanks! (Plenty speedy, post-it-ninja. :P )

    Her username is Cami8V6

    I'll meet up with her at spawn.

    The place is cool! O:

    But I have some questions. I have a sibling that I'd like to have white listed, but she doesn't have a forum account. How can we arrange for her to apply? She's fun and friendly and knows the fundamentals of community-hood, but probably won't sign up simply to join a server.

    She builds well and would most likely just stick around with me. She's 15, going on 16 this May.

    Thanks for the reply. :D

    And nice meeting you too. I'll hop onto the server when I can. Been on the busy side, did an experiment with a raw egg, blah blah blah...

    Can't wait to meet these players, they sound fun.

    Hello ^_^
    I'v been browsing for a while. Thought I'd take a shot at this one, looks and sounds very cool.


    Minecraft IGN: HenryandKurt
    HenryandKurt was made when I first bought minecraft with my sibling. We got the game before I decided to join the forums. Henry and Kurt were the characters we thought up as we started playing around in single player.

    Age: I turned 21 in 2014. I do not curse, and I know it's off topic, but I don't drink alcohol either.
    I never had interest in either of them.

    What has your experience been on Minecraft: Me and my sibling were introduced to the Minecraft community in 2012, I think? And we bought the game some time later, but we were exclusive single player adventurers for a long time.
    Only I have interest in joining servers online, and my sibling has since bought her own copy of the game.
    We dabbled a bit on a few servers in the past, one was by accident, the other was a sorry little server run privately by a friend. I have a feeling the first one banned me and the other ran out of funds.

    I've tried out a few other servers, but I've been more interested in smaller servers.

    Why do you want to join this server?: I'm lonely! I've been haunting the forums with out saying a word for such a long time, and listening to my own sad little footsteps in single player.
    Plus, I want new building ideas, and I want to work on different kinds of projects. I already had a few for the other 2 servers I joined, and I've purposed a couple to two other ones that I found earlier.

    Now, I must be clear that I may have some form of social anxiety, so I may take 'people breaks.' I have commitment, I'm just very shy, and sometimes very busy. I hope to login and play a bit every coupe of days.

    Have you read & agree on the Rules?: Completely and utterly. If there was some code word I was supposed to read, I didn't find it. I'll edit it in if there is one and If I missed it.

    You guys still accepting? Because this place sounds awesome!
    Watch out though, this one's a biggie.


    Call me Ash, I've recently turned 21 in December. Ash isn't my real name, but I like it because my real one is boring. Hmmm... What interesting stuff do I have to talk about?
    I signed up to several servers last November, but over the course of mid to late December, I became very busy with the holidays and my writing projects. I only finally began checking in this month in mid January, so my commitment is there, just very absent minded.

    I may have some form of social anxiety, so I might take 'people breaks' every now and then. Usually only a few days to a week. I hope to log in every other day and mess around. I'd rate my maturity, from 1 to 10, to be around 7 at least, polite, open minded but very shy.
    In the worst case maturity scenario, if things get bad, like an argument breaks out between two other players or something, I'd think the worst I'd do is log out and hide for a few hours, and come back.

    For the other two servers, I was going to make a Tree Spirit challenge puzzle section, and a Malchar Mines thingy where there would be a story of some sort. I'm still saving those for later.
    For this server, it might be neat to have a "Hobbit Warren" village thing, and a "RAID FORTS" death match of epicness, where we set up some kind of safe zone. A large cleared out area with some hills and stuff, with two forts. Through out the week, players build up on their supplies, then on Saturday, THE EPIC DEATH MATCH OF EPICNESS begins. It could be PVP, it could be just trying to mine/raid all the other team's stuff, I don't know yet, but it sounds cool.


    I'm an wrter and artist. I also dabble in web design and graphic designing, but I still stink at it a bit.

    My In Game name is HenryandKurt. I chose it with a sibling when we first bought minecraft. It was based off our characters we made up when we first started playing minecraft.
    My build style is not bad. I don't really have a good reference photo for one.

    I get pretty busy with several story projects I have, and keeping up with several hobbies, so I don't know how my activity rate will keep up.


    Now, I don't want to step on anyone's' toes or anything, but I admit, I skimmed through some of the intro post. Perhaps some edits can be made? Not so much as screenshots, but organizing the post better.

    EDIT: Went back and read it fully. Firstly, RUDE, I had 15 posts once! (Thank the Minecraft Gods I have 26 posts now.)
    And secondly, fair enough with your reasons, but It still bothers me a bit in terms of presentation, since I'm both a writer and a web designer. :P

    You can read what I hid below, but It would most likely defeat the purpose of the intro post.

    Server Title

    Just an optional paragraph or two to reel in members.

    This is a cool description with a few paragraphs of stuff that could be important for people to know. Perhaps this has technical details like location of server, maximum player slots, whitelist or not, or community details like stuff you guys got, blah blah blah

    A clear set of rules, restrictions and stuff

    Submission Instructions
    Instructions of instructionness with maybe a form to fill out because I like forms or I end up rambling.

    Eye-Candy Screenshots

    Because you guys seem to like that sort of thing and it makes people like me skip through stuff which could be bad because I might be missing something

    So I know who to PM

    Members Already Joined

    IP Address


    I don't really know what else to add, to be completely honest.
    I joined the forums after haunting it as a shadow, back in 2013. I've yet to post a lot since then. I still haunt the forums, but I speak now and again. Like I said, I'm shy, and pretty busy.

    Also, good luck with finals.

    posted a message on Simple MC - Back to the way things used to be.
    A few questions! A few that could be painfully obvious, but questions none the less. :)

    Is it a white list server?
    What about the chat? What if people cuss/be mean?
    So there's only the guy running the server, and no other staff, and no other plans for staff?
    What are the commands that can be used?
    Is there a tutorial on how to use the commands?
    Can players just make up their own rules and restrictions for their areas? (But are responsible for enforcing them?)
    How many players can be online at one time?

    Now, onto the constructive advice. :)
    I crave more information! The first post does nothing to inform me about what kind of server I'm getting into.

    Perhaps something like,

    Server Title
    Server IP

    Description, such as your ideas for game play (other than it being completely simple), what you have now, maybe how long you've been running the place (if you don't mind saying so) and other stuff you deem important for us to know

    Number of players already joined

    Special Notes (Such as the no staff quirk, or any rule exceptions that you have)

    Entry Process

    Blah blah blah blah

    Perhaps a few screenshots of the place. I use paint.NET to crop my screenshots down to banner sizes. Not necessary, but helpful.

    Sorry my post got long. I just like helping. :P No need to rush to reply back.

    posted a message on Looking for a few players - Mostly vanilla server, but with trading system and teleport transit system. Voice server avail.
    My apologies for the necro bump.
    Couldn't resist adding a little extra to the thread. :)

    I visited the server a couple times in November/December, and it's really great. This rag tag little post doesn't do it justice.

    While it's definitely a friendly server, I wouldn't say it's for kids looking to just have fun. I feel the need to contribute to the adventures, or at least to provide game play. When I visited the first time, I was introduced to lots of really intricate town builds, a neat trading system and a cool teleporting system, and it was fun to read the chat while I worked on my stuff.

    I had some ideas to add my part and they seemed open and willing to help on the projects I had, but after the holidays, stuff got really hectic, and I couldn't exactly visit properly on a regular basis.

    I'm hoping to sift through my old verification PMs that I got from Timboln, and try to log back in again. See what's happening.

    posted a message on CoolSquids' mods! Customization, meteors, pack utilities and more!
    The website doesn't work for me. I try to open it in chrome, but it's blank.

    Also, I don't recommend wix.com for website building. I think a wiki or free word press account (at least for now) would be better.

    Do you need a website already? I'm sure there's plenty of space in your first post for the mod.

    Just trying to be constructive. :)

    posted a message on I've installed Forge, but my mods aren't detected!
    Which minecraft version are you using?
    Check to see which one you are using, and if your mods/forge version is updated and compatible with it.

    Are you using the latest minecraft launcher, and are you using your forge profile?
    Are you using any other launcher other than the official Minecraft Launcher?

    Which forge version are you using?
    Check to see if it's compatible with your version of minecraft.

    What mods are you using?
    Check to see if your mods are up to date and support the version of minecraft and forge that you're using.

    I hope this helps, and go ahead and follow Zer0virus' advice as well. Putting away mods and re-installing forge usually helps.
