My roommate and I decided to try out mods for the first time. We downloaded Mincecraft Comes Alive, Xearo's minimap, Optifine, Pam's Harvest Craft, Exotic Birds, Dungeons, Gravestones, and the Camping Mod. This is all for 1.8.9 since that is the highest my roommate's computer can play. We are playing on LAN.
The problem keeps occurring whenever we get near a village. It crashes! We have removed mods all down to Xearo's and MCA but the problem kept occurring. Right now, we are just playing with Exotic Birds and HarvestCraft. We thought it might have been MCA but the world would crash soon after my roommate joined. And it was crashing by saying the connection was lost. But both of us are connect to an ethernet cable. We have no idea what could be causing it.
Also, HarvestCraft is missing most of its textures. I think only trees have their textures still. I've tried re-downloading the mod (all the mods actually), removing texture packs and adding textures packs. Not sure why this is happening.
We could really us some help! If you need any more info, I will try to help as much as I can! Thanks!
